Breakfast is great, and finding one that properly properly fills you up for hours is even better.

At the beginning of the week I start with cooking around about (my scales are broken) 225g quinoa  as that provides enough for each morning of the week. After cooking it for 13 minutes the water will be absorbed and the quinoa is ready in a big bowl it goes in the fridge.

So in the morning, the following meal is prepared, and it’s delish:

Herbal tea, any kind, at the moment dandelion tea is one of my faves and it’s bloomin’ marvellous for you, like most herbal teas.

1/2 a sliced avocado
A handful of blueberries
6 chopped almonds
Generous scattering of cinnamon
Mix it together, 1min 30sec in the microwave and you have got yourself a very sustainable and scrummy breakfast.

OR

Oats
Enough water/skimmed milk for the amount of oats which you have given yourself
6 chopped almonds but also 6 chopped pecans also work really well
A handful of blueberries
1tsp chia seeds
1tbsp organic desiccated coconut (it last for ages and the organic kind is the only kind I’ve been able to find where coconut is the only ingredient)
Mix it together and 2 minutes in the microwave to get your porridge and you have a slightly more wintery/autumny breakfast which will keep you full ’till lunchtime

Weekend breakfasts are the best because they usually involve eggs.

20140727_084336On special occasions I get smoked salmon and have it with spinach and scrambled/poached eggs on wholemeal/rye toast (white bread is not bread).
You can never go wrong with boiled eggs and soldiers – I’ve been able to get it to 4mins 30secs to get the perfect runny egg.

But the crème de la crop is my own special invention which I discovered when I found the beautiful little poachie moulds (for those who canny make poached eggs the ‘proper’ way).

1. Get 2 poachies, put about 5 blueberries in each one and then crack the egg into each one before putting them in boiling water and time it for 5 minutes
2. Put a scraping of Meridian Peanut Butter on each slice of wholemeal toast
3. Chop an avocado and scatter between the two pieces of toasts
4. When the eggs are done, put them on each slice of toast
5 Another scattering of cinnamon
BOOM! The blueberry/cinnamon/avocado combination works so damn well I can’t not have it at the weekend.

Bon appetit!

My friend Sarah once created this breakfast of pink grapefruit, avocado on wholemeal toast and a DUCK EGG. Very good way to start the day.
