Three Easy Breakfast

Hi guys

Here are three of my favorite breakfasts that you can prepare in few minutes and are good for busy days.

1- The first one is the easiest one, all you need is:

-one tbs maple syrup

-hand full of blueberries

-one cup of roasted spelt

Just mix everything and you’re good to go. It’s delicious, crunchy and contains high amounts of protein and fiber. Caution: spelt is not a gluten-free grain, actually it’s high in gluten.

2-The second one is my favorite; avocado toast

– three pieces of toast (I prefer whole grain)

-one avocado

-salt & pepper

-olive oil (a few drops)

-two small tomatoes

Smash the avocado in a small bowl using a fork. Mix in pepper, salt and olive oil. Spread it in on the breads. Slice tomatoes in small pieces and put it on the top. Enjoy.

3- The last one is for coffee lovers:

-one cup of coffee

-two ripe bananas

-handful of Chia seed

-handful of flaxseed

-few ice cubes

Threw everything in a mixture and mix. What I like about this one is that you can put it a mason jar, put the lead on and eat your breakfast on the way to work or school.

What is your “breakfast on the run”? Please share them in the comments.

Easy delicious lunch

Hi guys

Lunch is really important to me, maybe the most important meal of the day. However occasionally when I have big plans for dinner or I am going to eat out with my friends or family, I consciously choose to eat a simple lunch. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite dishes for those occasions. It is healthy and full of nutrients and it only takes 15-20 minutes to cook, even less when there is quinoa leftover in the fridge.

Ingredients

1.Bunch of baby spinach

2. Four big mushrooms

3. Half cup of quinoa

4. Half a lemon

5. Salt, pepper

6. Olive oil

7. Half an avocado

8.Dill (optional)

9. 1 1/2 cup water

Pour water in a small pot. Then add quinoa and salt, bring it to the boil and let it be on low heat for 10 minutes. You can add dil at this point but it is completely optional.

Now cut mushrooms and put them in a pan add olive oil and pepper and lemon juice to it. Avoid overcooking, 5-6 minutes is enough for mushrooms. If you chop them really small, it will take even less.

Peel half of an avocado and cut it to thin pieces. Then rinse spinach leaves. I use cold water to rinse vegetables.

IMG_3991When quinoa is ready, throw it into the same pan that you cooked mushrooms in it, this way quinoa will absorb all the mushroom’s juice and will be more tasty. Take the pan off the heat. Then add spinach leaves and stir.IMG_3990

The food is ready. Put it on a plate and add the avocado pieces on the side and enjoy.

I strongly believe that this fresh healthy delicious meal is a really great alternative for frozen food that comes in box. It is a healthier choice for everyone weather you are vegan or not. To make sure that your eating  healthy, just ask yourself  this simple question before eating anything; “does my body benefit from it?” if the answer is no, don’t eat that. We only get one body, so worship it and be kind to it.
