Fennel & Apple Salad (RAW)
Banana Coconut Pie (RAW)
A few years ago I left my hectic, crazy life in advertising and started working as a freelancer designer. Whilst it was very daunting at first it has been the greatest blessing. With independence comes risk but also opportunity!
A lot of my days are unpredictable because I am a One Man Show which means late hours, last minute jobs or to be everywhere at the same time.
This can make eating clean and regular challenging at times. Since breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, I use it as an opportunity to get maximum nutrients and good energy into my body. It helps to move gently into the day.
My sister and I went to Thailand a few years ago and I was astonished to see leafy greens and soups on their breakfast menu. It’s surprisingly comfortable to start your day with a warm bowl of nourishing, healthy vegetables. The chlorophyll and nutrients set you up for a balanced day, even if you have to skip a meal or grab something on the go. It’s a good feeling to have already made a healthy choice in the morning.
Celeriac is one of my favourite vegetables. I make this ‘sandwich’ often with different layers and ingredients. Cut, steam, eat. It’s as quick as making a coffee and waiting for the toast to pop up.
If you try veggies for breakfast, try swoping your coffee for a green tea... it’s highly alkalising and known for it’s allround health benefits. I know this sounds a bit unusual for Westerners - the Asian cultures have taught me for the better though... give it a go!
1 handful of peas
3 leaves silverbeet
2 leaves kale

Meanwhile sauté silverbeet, kale and your other favourite vegetables for 1 min or 2.
Make a litlle tower with vegetables, adding one slice of celeriac and leavy greens.
Be creative and add as many things as you like.
Steaming is one of the best cooking methods for maximizing taste and color, while retaining the most nutrients.
Drizzle with olive oil, butter or tahini. Fat is important for fat soluble vitamin absorption.
Sprinkle with spices, dulse flakes, hemp seeds or black seeds.
