So we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do we always make time to have it?
At our recent visit to SHA Wellness Clinic, we had a fabulous breakfast that really set us up for the day:
Here are a couple of the recipes from our breakfast:
Having not had porridge for such a long time we were reminded how much we enjoy it, rich in nutrients and with so many topping variations it really is a perfect start to a cold winter’s day.
Ingredients (for 2 people):
- 1 cup de 110 grams of the selected oats (rice/ ground Millet/ Oatmeal)
- Pinch of sea salt
- Leave the selected oats soaking overnight, for the porridge to be creamier and more easily digested.
- Add three cups of water and a pinch of sea salt to the oats in a cast iron frying pan. Gently bring it to the boil and stir occasionally.
- Turn the heat down to the minimum and let it cook for approximately 20 or 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Porridge can be served with milk (almond, rice milk) and with toppings such as fruit, nuts/ seeds and cinnamon and rice or barley syrup to sweeten.
This was not a dish that we had tried before but it will definitely be something we will be making ourselves at home:
Ingredients (for 3/4 people):
- Sunflower or sesame oil. 1 spoonful.
- Normal or smoked Tofu. 200 grs.
- 1 Peeled onion, cut in pieces.
- Shoyu (soybean sauce). 2 teaspoon.
- 6/8 Washed mushrooms, cut in pieces.
- 1 Nori seaweed leaf.
- 2 Fresh onions cut in thin strips.
- Sweet corn grains of a corncob.
- Warm the oil in a frying pan and brown the onionuntil it softens.
- Add the mushrooms and the sweet corn grains.
- Prepare thetofu and add it to the mix carefully.
- Add a bit of cold water and the shoyu(soybean sauce).
- Simmerduring 5 minutes.
- Cut the nori seawood into small pieces and addthem to the mixture.
- Serve withyeast free bread.
- Decorate with thin strips of fresh onion.
You can add a bit of black pepper to the mixture or extend a thin lawyer grain mustard over the bread. You can also add other vegetables like broccoli or carrots.
It’s the most practical option, for those who are in a hurry or don’t like cooking that much. It’s better to have a high quality, sourdough bread made by wholemeal flour accompanied with natural jam (without sugar) or olive/flax oil. For people with liver problems, dry skin, mouth or eyes, constipation or usual headaches is advisable to have steamed bread. You can also have it with a vegetable spread.
