This is the perfect balanced breakfast and one that will keep you full for hours! Avocado and egg pair so well, and the combination of healthy fats and protein will balance your blood sugar perfectly, keeping you full for longer. This is one of my favourite breakfasts and one of the best breakfasts you can have.
1 Avocado sliced in half, stone out.
2 organic eggs
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Chopped fresh chives (optional)
1. Pre-heat the oven to 220C or 425F.
2-Place the two avocado halves on a baking tray, and allow them to touch so they are well supported and don't rock on your baking tray. Spoon in the egg yolk slowly, followed by the egg white.
2- Season with salt and pepper.
3- Bake in pre-heated oven for 12mns for a soft egg and 15/17mns for eggs that are more well done.
4-Top with fresh chopped chives if desired and enjoy!

Traditional Lebanese Eggs and Sumac breakfast in clay pot, there is really nothing to this recipe and its extremely delicious. Eggs, contrary to what some people might believe, are very healthy for you. They contain amazing nutrients such as Choline that are vital for proper brain function. Eating eggs once or twice a week will add a lot of essential nutrients to your diet. Sumac is a spice made from the Sumac plant and the red dried crushed berries that grow on it. It adds a lovely mild lemon flavour to food, is full of amazing antioxidants and is just amazing with eggs!
Sumac powder (1/2 teaspoon per egg)
Salt and black pepper to taste

This is not even a recipe really but its such a great snack and the best part is that it takes 5mns tops to put together. It is amazingly healthy and will keep you full for a long time. Avocados are full of healthy Omega 3 fats that raise your good cholesterol and help reduce your bad cholesterol. Your body needs 2/3 servings of healthy fats a day and 30g of avocado makes up one serving. That's amazing when you compare it to oil where one teaspoon counts as a serving. I know which one I'd rather have!
1 slice of Gluten free bread toasted
30g avocado flesh mashed
Any vegetables of your choice (cherry tomatoes, baby lamb lettuce etc...)

Quinoa is one of the best Vegan protein sources you could eat. It contains significantly more protein then any grain, and the quality of the protein is better then that of meat. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals and is low in fat. An all-round great food!
75g (3oz) of Quinoa
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
2-3 tablespoons of rice milk
4 tablespoons low-fat natural live yoghurt
1 banana peeled and sliced
Tip: I love to add some chopped walnuts on top!

This is one of my absolute favourite breakfasts! I have it practically every morning and vary the fruits and nuts daily to add variety to my diet. You should prepare it the night before and leave it in the fridge, ready to eat in the morning. It is a prefect combination of proteins (nuts, yoghurt) and carbs (oats), which keeps you fuller for much longer. Oats are a great source of soluble fiber that helps to reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol.
30g of Oats
120g of low fat organic yoghurt/Greek yoghurt
60g fruits of your choice (try pomegranates, berries, peach/apricots or a mix!)
3-4 pieces of walnuts or almonds chopped, or 1 teaspoon of milled Flaxseed.
Mix the oats, yoghurt and fruits together and place in the fridge overnight. The raw oats will absorb the liquid from the yoghurt and soften, almost like they have been cooked. In the morning remove from the fridge and sprinkle with the nuts.
Tip: We love to add a little Cinnamon to the mix. It tastes delicious and its great for Balancing Blood sugar
