A weekend of special breakfasts

I love a good breakfast, eaten in peace on my couch while Paris slowly wakes up. Here is what I ate last weekend…

Lazy Musings

My idea of a perfect day: a delicious super foods salad, latté, green smoothie, dream catcher and flowers.

#1- In My Basket

I hope you all had a lovely weekend lovelies. Saturday was a gorgeously sunny day here in Paris so I got excited and took out my basket and flask of coffee and myself out to market to get some fresh vegetables. I do that every Saturday, but seeing it’s an important part of my weekend I thought you may enjoy knowing what fresh food I get each weekend, depending on the season and what I’m cooking, and showing you what I cook with it all. How does that sound? This little series will give you an insight into my Saturday mornings at market here in Paris.

Loaf of sourdough bread that had literally just been pulled out of the oven when I got it from my bakery.

With my fresh ingredients I made myself a kale, sprouted lentil, raw beetroot, grated ginger, and roasted beetroot (which I roast in coconut oil) salad with a dash of olive oil. The bread was still warm so I boiled two eggs and had them with some salted butter on toast. I can’t tell you how good it was.

Salmon, Avocado and Lamb’s Lettuce Salad for Omega 3’s

This is one of my favourite meals because it’s so quick and not at all heavy. A good one if you’re pressed for time but don’t feel like pasta.

It’s also high in our good friends Omega 3’s. What are Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

They’re considered “essential” fats – Essential fats are so defined as they are vital for, but cannot be made by, the human body. They are needed for the integrity of every cell membrane in the body so particulalry important for the health of vital organs such as the heart and brain.

Where can you find Omega 3’s? Omega 3′s are found in foods including walnuts, some fruits and vegetables, and coldwater fish such as herring, mackerel, sturgeon, and anchovies.  Fish contain omega 3′s because they eat microalgae that contains omega 3′s. Other vegan sources of omega-3s include canola oil, broccoli, cantaloupe, kidney beans, spinach, grape leaves, Chinese cabbage, cauliflower, spirulina, and walnuts. And obviously salmon and avocado!

Or else, you could also use a product like Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend and put it in smoothies, drizzle over salads or vegetables. It’s a very wonderful product. I use the ultimate oil blend, it really is wonderful.

For my salad dressing I used grated ginger, chia seeds, olive oil, a dash of baslamic and of course the Udo’s oil.

Happy Friday folks

Warm Beetroot and Raw Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

This salad is a great simple one that doesn’t take long but feels great and keeps well for the next day.

You’ll need to boil and peel a beetroot and slice it up.

For the salad dressing I used three big tablespoons of tahini mixed with a dash of olive oil, salt, pepper, crushed garlic and some grated ginger.

Chop up the kale finely and mix it with the warm cooked beetroot, two cooked carrots and one zucchini.

Add the dressing.

Once it’s all evenly mixed, sprinkle chia seeds over the salad for extra protein and fiber and you’ll all done.

Enjoy!

This weekend we were in the north of France enjoying the (much) cooler weather. Upon arrival I discovered my unicorn cookie cutter that had arrived in my letter box and boy am I excited to make unicorn shortbreads! Magical.
