Quick, easy and using only one pan means less clean up! I like to make a big batch to last for several meals.
Easily customisable to your needs, i.e. if you’ve been recommended to avoid dairy, replace milk with broth, water or coconut milk.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene – an antioxidant superhero that supports detox and is great for the brain, heart and bones.
A great dish for any time of day, you can serve it with a side of steamed greens and rice or potato.
A Chinese cure for all ills, congee is gentle and nourishing for digestion and great for beating colds.
Customise it to your taste with ginger, spring onions, carrot, mushroom, fish, poached chicken, etc. and pop an egg on top.
A twist on the classic frittata – make these in muffin trays for an easy breakfast or snack on the go.
Again, make these your own: add mackerel, tuna or free-range bacon. Great with pumpkin & mushrooms too!
Those of us who have travelled through Asia know how delicious this breakfast staple can be!
The options are endless for this dish – it’s a great way to use up leftovers, as anything goes: roast chicken, steamed veg, etc.
Buddha bowls are a great way to get your protein, fats, carbs and veg in one great-tasting dish – they are basically another way to eat warm salad.
Totally customisable to your taste and your pantry / fridge.
A beautifully nourishing and hearty breakfast bowl.
Get creative with the ingredients – you can easily swap out millet for other non-gluten, gut-friendly grains like buckwheat, quinoa or rice.
Delicious at any time of day, you could also try a vegetarian version minus the chicken, and using whatever vegies appeal – root vegetables would pair nicely with the creamy texture. I’ve also been adding ginger and turmeric for extra warmth and digestive support.
One of my favourite things about travelling in South-East Asia is the amazing AND healthy snacks on offer at any time of day or night. Patients often ask me what they can snack on, and in most cases I will suggest something warm that incorporates vegies, carbs, protein and healthy fats, to keep energy levels and digestion operating smoothly.
This recipe follows the classic “protein on a stick” idea of a lot of great street food, and is easy to make and easy to snack on 🙂 You can also make this with chicken, and fresh herbs and vegies to the ball mix, for extra flavour. Enjoy!
I always have to make a big batch of this dish: it never lasts long in our house, as it is delicious at any time of day (and can be added on top of veggie buddha bowls).
This- recipe contains lots of stimulating and warming spices to boost digestion and bust inflammation (add a healthy twist of cracked pepper to supercharge the benefits of the turmeric in this dish). Bon appetit!
YUM!! Some more breakfast (and lunch and dinner) inspiration. The combination of chicken, rice* and greens has become my go-to meal over the years.
*Just remember to use white rice, not brown, as it is much harder to digest and contains phytates (anti-nutrients that bind to vitamins and minerals to prevent their absorption) – and feel free to freestyle it and mix up the ingredients to suit your tastes.
They’re called breakfasts, but they are just as good at any time of day. Not only will these dishes power you through the day, but they also boost your digestion AND promise beautiful skin. Winning!
