SPICE UP A CLASSIC
Start your day off with a nutrient-heavy, inflammation-fighting breakfast — our lazy weekend Masala Omelet — which is easy, delicious and packed full of health benefits. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient, while green chilis rev up the metabolism and are a rich source of beta-carotene and antioxidants. Cilantro contains many vitamins and minerals such as A, C, K and potassium, plus it helps remove heavy metals from the body.
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of black pepper
- Pinch of paprika
- 1 tbsp chopped onions
- 1 tbsp chopped tomatoes
- ½ tbsp chopped Serrano peppers/green chilies (or more of you like it spicy)-Omit if you don’t like spicy
- 1/8th tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
- ½ teaspoon of grass fed ghee (optional)
Beat the eggs with paprika salt and black pepper in a bowl.
In a sauté pan on low heat add two tbsp of oil and add in the onion and sauté till translucent.
Follow it with the tomatoes and sauté.
At this point add in the turmeric powder and stir, let the spice bloom a little and add in the cilantro leaves and green chilies.
Next sauté for 30-45 secs and add/pour in your eggs in the pan.
Let cook at this point (without scrambling hard) you could choose to fold it or be a pro and give it the good ‘ol flip.
Finish off with some grass-fed ghee (optional)
POWER UP YOUR LATTE
The turmeric in this recipe adds both a bold golden hue and a powerful hit of antioxidants to your traditional latte. It also reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system and fights cell damage.
- Handful 5-8 nuts of any choice (cashews, walnuts, almonds) soaked in water for an hour or overnight) or can use a mug of any nut milk
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
- ¼ tsp turmeric powder
- 1 small piece of fresh ginger root (or use pinch of ginger powder)
- 1 mug water
- 1 tsp Manuka honey
Blend together all the ingredients, except the honey in a blender on high. If you don’t have a blender, you can use ready made almond/cashew/walnut milk instead of blending with soaked nuts.
Special Tip- the longer you soak the nuts the easier they are to blend + soaking also makes them easier to digest.
Boil this blended mixture in a pan, then pour into a mug, stir in the Manuka honey and enjoy.
If you don’t have a blender, boil together all the ingredients with any nut milk of your choice, then stir in the Manuka honey and enjoy.
