When it comes to my daily routine, I like to make sure that I have three meals full of as many nutrients as possible! Eating three full meals packed with vegetables, meats, beans, lentils and fruit will help the body get enough vitamins, protein and fibre throughout the day. This will help keep your body energised and hydrated! For me it is also important to be snacking in between my main meals, I always reach for dried fruits and nuts (unsalted) and 70% cocoa dark chocolate!
The meal I struggle with the most is breakfast! When I talk to friends and family they say the same! If you have a busy morning getting ready for work, the school run or even a run or the gym, it is important to make the time even if it is just 10-15 minutes max to prepare a healthy and nutritious breakfast.
QUICK AND HEALTHY BREAKFAST IDEAS
A few ideas for a quick breakfast could be something as simple as toast with peanut butter or porridge oats with sliced banana dusted with cinnamon. If you have a little more time why not try one of my breakfast/brunch recipes like French Toast and Crêpes – (I also have dairy free and gluten free versions too!)
I have recently cut out gluten ,milk and potato from my diet, it has been 4 weeks and my body feels so much happier. My IBS has become non existent, I’m not bloating out anywhere near as much and my migraines have been more controllable and less frequent! I have been visiting my GP and getting medical support and advice. If you are unsure see you GP or a Dietician for some guidance if you think your body has an intolerance.
EGGS FOR BREAKFAST
I love eggs for breakfast, whether it is scrambled, boiled, sunny side up or poached, I can eat them any way any time! Eggs are great in a balanced diet, they are full of high-quality protein and lots of vitamins and minerals! Last year I watched a programme on Channel 4 called Super Foods: The Real Story with Kate Quilton and she investigated how eggs benefit our bodies especially our eye health and apparently one egg a day is great for our vision!
Here is a quick and easy Turmeric and Spinach Scrambled Eggs recipe for you to try. This meal is full of protein and iron and the added Turmeric is a great anti-oxidant and a natural antibiotic for the body as it works as an anti-inflammatory. This is great in your food and drink to help fight a cold and boost your immune system.
