Oats are such a nutritional powerhouse and certainly one of my favourite breakfast meals! They make the perfect warming nourishing breakfast porridge in the colder months. And are fresh and delicious eaten cold as overnight oats paired with summer fruits in the warmer weather. What’s even better is you can make a large batch prepped for the next few days ahead. Now there’s no excuses for breakfast in a hurry!
A quiche or tart makes an easy healthy lunch or dinner with extra leftovers, or even a pre-made breakfast on the go. It’s a great dish to use up all your leftover veg at the end of the week. You can make it without a base as a frittata if you prefer. Serve it up with extra veg on the side such as a fresh green salad or steamed green beans.
Muesli cookies are a perfect on-the-go sustaining breakfast or anytime of day snack. It’s a great choice for kids (and adults) lunch boxes, with it’s good source of slow release low GI carbs. These are so incredibly quick and easy to whip up, so there is no need for packaged, store-bought biscuits or snacks.
An easy to whip up, healthy sustaining meal for any time of day. Packed with high-quality protein from eggs and plenty of nutrients from eggs, veggies and added herbs. Frittata’s are a great way to use up all the leftover veg in your fridge at the end of the week. Or make it a night ahead for a warm or cold quick breakfast or work lunch.
It’s hump day, Melbourne’s weather is all drizzly and overcast, and all I want to do is curl up in bed in an over-sized tee and underwear with a cup of green tea and a huge warm slice of delicious healthy banana berry breakfast loaf smothered in melted organic grass-fed butter…
We are certainly blessed for choice when it comes to healthy and delicious food in Melbourne. It’s no wonder so many of us have become self-confessed foodies and smashed avo aficionados!
