RECIPE: LATE POWER-BREAKFAST

From the Kitchen of The Good Food Angel

-------------------------------------

One of my favourite late breakfast recipes. If it’s hard to eat a good breakfast, try getting up earlier---it’s hard to eat a good meal when you’re rushing. If that doesn’t work, try this healthy mid-morning alternative, which is better than a cereal bar, which may not contain any nutrition.

INGREDIENTS

favourite flavour organic bio yogurt

chopped fresh seasonal fruit (apple, banana, summer/autumn berries, peaches, pineapple. cherries, etc.)

crunchy granola or muesli (toast the muesli for extra flavour)

sprinkling of linseed and flax seed (toast for extra flavour)

a little wheatgerm

METHOD

Mix all the ingredients, coating all the fruit in yogurt (prevents discolouration)

VARIATION: If you don’t like yogurt, try orange juice and pour it on before eating. It is really delicious, especially if you freshly squeeze a couple of oranges yourself. The Swiss eat their muesli soaked in orange juice, which I think it makes it more appetising than milk.

RECIPE: TIGER SHAKE -- BREAKFAST DRINK

From the Kitchen of The Good Food Angel

-----------------------------------------

Great for sporty teens. Whip it up for a power-breakfast, or send in the lunchbox.

INGREDIENTS

Seasonal soft fruits (strawberries, mango, blackberries, blueberries, papaya etc.)

Banana

Ground almond powder

Strawberry yogurt (or other favourite flavour)

Milk/Soya milk)

Pinch of cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

METHOD

Measure out the milk and yogurt, about half and half, until you get the consistency you want. Then blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Freeze in a plastic drinks container (not completely filled) and take out the morning you want to use it. Otherwise throw in a cube of ice.

TIP: Nicer drunk with a straw. If sending for lunch, make sure to send with an ice pack.

RECIPE: SEASONAL MUESLI MIX

From the kitchen of The Good Food Angel

-------------------------------

I think this is my all-time favourite recipe ever, because once I worked out the right muesli mix to suit my family, I stopped ever having to think about breakfast again---other than to decide if I would make the winter, or summer version! If the muesli isn’t enough to fill everyone up, make some brown bread toast and serve with a delicious sugar-free organic jam, or Dr Karg’s crackers, and some fresh juice, a smoothie, or some apple tea to drink.

WARM WINTER BREAKFAST

INGREDIENTS

Good quality delicious organic muesli mix (containing loads of fruit)

Cinnamon

Water

Topping:

Maple syrup

Any chopped fresh fruit you fancy

METHOD

Pour muesli into a heavy-based saucepan. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and pour in enough water to just about cover it. Heat slowly on a very low hob, while stirring with a wooden spoon. When the water has been absorbed, remove from heat and pour into bowls. The purpose in cooking it is to warm it not to really cook it. This way it retains its crunch. (If you want something smoother, cook for a little longer, using a little more water.) Pour on maple syrup and add fresh fruit.

(Okay, this is a version of porridge, but don’t call it that, or you might put the children off!)

TIP: Put everything except the water in the saucepan the night before to save time in the morning. If you like something more creamy and closer to traditional porridge you can add the water the night before, let it soak in and top it up in the morning. Regarding the muesli, I cannot emphasise how important it is to source a high quality organic muesli mix. It really does make a difference to the taste. I have never found a muesli that is perfect for me, so I buy the one that is closest, remove the nuts, which my daughter detests, and add in loads more dried fruit instead. I recommend you customise yours too. Otherwise you can just buy the oats and dried fruits separately and make up your own combination from scratch.

COOL SUMMER BREAKFAST

INGREDIENTS

Good quality delicious organic muesli mix (containing loads of fruit)

Freshly squeezed orange juice (or the closest you can get)

Any chopped fresh fruit you fancy (cherries are delicious)

METHOD

Combine all the ingredients.

TIP: If you like, you can do as the Swiss and let the muesli soak in the orange juice overnight for a softer texture, but my experience is that children prefer the quick crunchy version.
