Breakfast: Nut-Free Overnight Strawberry Bircher (vegan)

20140615193100(2)

There’s nothing better than to start the day with something super delicious and filling that is also hugely healthy!
My morning are always frantic with trying to get the kids ready for school and this bircher works really well for time-strapped mornings, as I just mix it all together the night before, put it in the fridge and dish out in the morning.
(Bish bash bosh! And it gives me time to shower/brush my hair, yay!)
This bircher is nut-free as one of my kids, together with so many others nowadays, are allergic to certain nuts, and because I use sunflower seeds it’s still crunchy and lovely.
I hope you like it!

How to Make Home-Made Coconut Milk

20140615183859(1)

I love this whole coconut bonanza that’s happening at the moment, since I absolutely adore anything coconutty!
Home made coconut milk tastes so much nicer than the stuff you get in the shop and you side step any BPA or guar gum.
It’s also incredibly easy to make!
The fat in the coconut milk contains lauric acid which has anti microbial and anti bacterial properties.
It also contains minerals like iron, calcium, potassium and zinc and vitamin C and E.
And if that was not enough coconut oil is made up of medium triglycerides and is metabolised differently to other fats.
Instead of depositing the fat in the body’s fat cells coconut oil is burned like carbohydrates for energy.
Cheers!

Healthy Morning Smoothie for Kids

20140516165157(2)

If you start your morning with a healthy nutritious breakfast you are more likely to continue in that vein for the rest of the day.
But breakfasts can be tricky to get right, the traditional breakfast normally contains absolutely no good nutrients, just stodge and milk…
It is certainly not the way I want my kids to start their day.
It’s important to eat  7-10-ish portions of vegetables (and some fruit) a day but without starting at breakfast time it’s more or less impossible to keep up.
I give my kids a super nutritious and delicious smoothie hiding sprouting broccoli, avocado, chlorella and chia seeds. ( And they have no idea!)
I feel happy and content they’ve started their day with a nutrient-dense breakfast that supports them as they head off to school!

Raw Buckwheat Porridge

20131211200319(1)

This porridge is like a big cosy bear-hug!
It’s filling without making you feel bloated or over-full.
The main ingredient is buckwheat – which contrary to it’s name is not related to wheat at all.
It’s actually a fruit seed and it’s cousin is rhubarb.
Buckwheat is high in manganese and magnesium and it’s also high in fibre..
It really works well with fresh organic blueberries on top.
Hope you like it!
