Nutty Toasted Granola

Poached Eggs on Pea Pancakes
A buddha bowl is one of my favourite go-to’s. You can mix and change the ingredients as you wish from day to day, and it is so simple yet nourishing. The one here is vegan and very low carb (ketogenic). If you wish to make it a carb meal, you can simply add a cup of quinoa, rice or potatoes.
You may also wish to change the vegetables around, whatever you have at home. Ideally, you include a cruciferous vegetable such as cabbage and/or radish and a protein such as tofu (or tempeh for even more benefits).
Adding some organic edamame beans or peas will increase the protein content, or turn it into a non-vegan poké bowl by swopping the tofu with salmon, shrimps or any other seafood of your choice. Enjoy!

The coconut sugar is much higher in nutrients than conventional sugar, especially the raw version (we use Purasana) keeps all its goodness, while having a lower glycemic index (blood sugar response) to reduce damage to your blood vessels and metabolism.
The good fats of the nuts and avocados will keep you full for long, fuel your brain cells and metabolism.
Nutrigenomic advise: If you have a COMT polymorphism and are feeling slightly stressed out or just having lots on your plate, this might not be the best option for you today, as it uses up more of an already taxed COMT enzyme. Have this on days where you are feeling truly relaxed :). X
A bulletproof coffee can be a great tool to prolong your fasting window, while supporting your brain performance, hormone balance and ketosis. Do not add to meals, as the extra fat that is beneficial in a fasted state will actually be detrimental if you add it to meals. A pinch of Himalayan salt will boost your adrenal (stress) glands and electrolyte balance.
Guilt- & glutenfree banana chocolate cake for your carb-refill treat days. Kids will love this cake, and it is absolutely guilt-free. Gluten- and processed sugar free. However do make sure to limit consumption to your carb-refill days 1x/week, as despite having only lush ingredients, it is still quite high in carbs, which we should limit to 1x/week. Enjoy! XX
Eat cold for maximum health benefits to your gut bacteria (resistant starch!) – If eaten warm, it will taste just as good but the sugar will feed your fat cells rather than your gut bacteria ;).
