Olive oil is best consumed raw,…… Continue reading Granola

Baked Avocado Eggs

Description Most people don’t recommend baking or grilling avocados, for two reasons: they are extremely nutrient-rich when raw and their taste becomes slightly bitter. Nonetheless, avocado oil is heat-stable and has a high smoking point. If yours are getting a little soft, this is one way to enjoy them, baked and stuffed with eggs and…… Continue reading Baked Avocado Eggs

Fruit & Yoghurt

Description This is a satiating and refreshing breakfast, one of my personal favourites.

The portion of protein consists of either seeds or nuts, milk or yoghurt, all…… Continue reading Oatmeal Variations

Passionfruit On-The-Go

Don’t let anyone tell you the Chinese aren’t inventive. I love the way they prepare and exploit ingredients. Apart from all the meat-eating in modern China which seems to be more a symbol of prosperity than a tradition in many richer parts of China, I think that here I’ve seen some of the most inventive ways…… Continue reading Passionfruit On-The-Go
