I don’t usually post on a Saturday but today I’ve got something a little special for you: an exciting announcement and an easy recipe for how to make cafe worthy avocado toast at home. The recipe is mostly about how to plate this simple breakfast to make it look like it’s worth at least $18, because apparently that’s what we spend on brunch in Melbourne and why so many of us can’t afford to adult. Apparently.
Eating well isn’t supposed to be hard. It’s supposed to make you feel good, give you energy and help you lead a long, healthy life. It doesn’t mean missing out on things so much as adding things. Remember Michael Pollen’s words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly vegetables.
Vegemite on toast is delicious it’s true, as is peanut butter, but having the same thing all the time can get seriously boring. Here’s some nutrient dense, refined sugar free ways to start your morning with a bang. And I promise it’s not just avocado toast 7 ways 😉
Your work lunch shouldn’t just be about a green salad and a can of tuna. Or a ham sandwich. Or two minute noodles. I mean, all these options have their benefits (maybe not the last one!) but they’re a bit boring and you deserve better. So much better.
These ideas will help even the biggest meat eater happily include more vegetables, easily, every day. I am not vegan or vegetarian but there are many reasons why I try to include as many vegetables as I can in my diet. I was once a fussy eater, and there have been plenty of vegetables that I claimed to hate over the years. But now I have legitimate cravings for vegetables… seriously (obviously amongst the chocolate ones). Sometimes I don’t know who I am anymore…
This week I thought I would let you all in on a little secret. How I plan my meals for the week to make sure I a) don’t get bored b) can make meals without having to do a post-work supermarket shop c) don’t spend ridiculous amounts of money on food then waste it. So are you ready for the secret to all this brilliance?
