Created this very delicious, super nutrition and yummy green breakfast bowl for breakfast this morning.

When it’s raining I love nothing more then being in my PJs, cooking and creating in the kitchen.

What I did to create this yummy green breakfast bowl, in about 20 minutes to mind you! 
 with my trusty ninja blender, I threw in one bag of baby spinach  and pulsed.
• 4 shallots including the green part
• one bunch of broccolini roughly chopped the steams as well.
• one zucchini roughly chopped first. Each ingredient went in separately into Ninja and pulsed on low. Placed into a big bowl drizzle over extra virgin olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon
in a fry pan lightly toasted a good handful of pepitas, sunflower seeds and almonds. Then toss thru your chopped greens.
.
Crumble over feta, and place sliced Avocado  on top.
.
Poach eggs  and place on top and sprinkle over @tableofplenty dukkah.
.
We also added some bacon and or salmon would be amazing too!
.
So yummy and great breakfast option for Sunday breaky when we have that little extra time. #enjoy #inthekitchen #creativespace #jleighkitchen#wouldhaveacafe #projectyou #nutrition #recipe #funcfitnessfood#fuelforperformance #basicingredients #basiccooking #mumlife #family#food #sunday

My favourite family breakfast

Due to a busy work scedual of owning and operating FUNC fitness here on the Gold Coast, and extra curricular activties of my 3 kids, we dont always get to have my meals together, we always aim for either dinner or breakfast, breakfast being our main one to get togehter. And Sunday being one of the best days of the week to get extra time in the kitchen to make these healthy and delishous pancakes that the whole family love, enjoy and look forward to after a hecyic and busy week.

So we had to share again due to popular demand.

Note- making your favourite, treats from scratch allows you, not only to know all your ingredients but allows you to control what goes into your food and essentially into your body.

Why spelt flour???

A wonderfully nutritious and ancient grain with a deep nutlike flavor, spelt is a cousin to wheat that is recently receiving renewed recognition. Spelt products can be found in your local health food store year-round.

Spelt is an ancient grain that traces its heritage back long before many wheat hybrids. Many of its benefits come from the fact that it offers a broader spectrum of nutrients compared to many of its more inbred cousins in the wheat family. It can be used in many of the same ways as wheat including bread and pasta making. Spelt does not seem to cause sensitivities in many people who are intolerant of wheat.

Spelt has slightly fewer calories than wheat flour and is somewhat higher in protein. The flour is easy to digest but is lower in fiber than wheat.

The gluten in spelt flour is a little unusual. Unlike wheat flour, which is quite resiliant and often needs a long kneading time (with breads) to strengthen its gluten and give the bread structure, the gluten in spelt flour breaks down fairly easily.


Zucchini Slice

This easy healthy slice / pie is great for prepared lunches and lunch boxes for kids. packed full of veggies and protein. Great for those who are on the go, or like to prepare meals in advance.

Ingredients

3 medium carrots grated

2 large Zucchinis grated.

1 cup of grated cheese.

10 free range eggs.

1 cup baby Spinch leaves.

1 cup of diced ham optional.

1 cup of corn. (cooked and sliced off cob perferably or can)

1/2 cup of plain flour.

1 teasp BP.

Summer oats for on the go !

ingredients

500g of gluten free Rolled Oats

1 cup of Silvered Almonds

1 cup of Chia seeds

1 cup of Sherred Coconut

this mixture can be made and stored in a air tight container ready for when you need to qiuckly prepare your on the go breakfast for the next day .

Frozen or fresh if available raspberries and blueberries

your choice of 1/4 cup of yogurt preferraably a natural greek style yogurt.

To prepare your summer oats the night before, use a recycled jar or tuperware container, place 1/4 to 1/2 cup of you dry oat mix and place 3/4 – 1cup of boilling water or some times  I like to use almod or coconut milk, stir and let stand for 2minutes.  place 1/4 cup of yogurt and  1/2 cup of frozen or fresh berries on top, and store in fridge over night.

In the morning, after a great training session you are ready to refuel with a great nutritent rich on the go breakfast, that will keep your energy and blood sugar levels sustained all morning.

I use the FREEDOM foods glutein free bran of oats australian own and grown.  All oats contain gluten (avenin). Traditionally, most oats are grown as a rotational crop in wheat, barely, tricale and rye fields. This can cross contaminate the oats with wheat, making them unsuitable for people with gluten free /wheatfree dietry needs. Freedon foods oats are grown strictly on fields with no other ceral crops by aussie oat farmers who only grow non GM oats, canola and corn preventing pointential on farm cross contamination.

Why are oats so good for us, they are an excellent nervous sytem tonic, a nutritional powerhouse! useful for lowering cholesterol, rich in dietary firbre which maintains  good  blood sugar levels, and keeps you fuller for longer. Rich in Bvitamins, potassium, zinc and iron.

Why wouldnt you get on the summer oats for breakfast!
