Food that Feels Like Freedom: Tomato and Olive Oil Toast — Recipe in a Bottle

Breakfast Recipe: Berry Coconut Chia Pudding

Featured Image -- 319

Louise Digby Nutrition

This is a super convenient breakfast as you’ll make it the night before, so it’ll be ready to eat by the time you wake. It takes around 4 hours ‘firm up’ so you could also make it in the morning to have at lunchtime.

This recipe is high in protein, which is important first thing in the morning as it’s needed to balance blood sugar levels, and to keep you going until lunchtime. If you suffer with fatigue one of the first things to think about it whether you’re getting enough protein!

It’s also rich in fibre, needed for the same reasons as protein (blood sugar balance and satiety), but also to support digestive health as chia seeds help to keep things regular. AND the chia seeds provide essential omega 3, something that is depleted in SO many people’s diets.

It’s also rich in anti-oxidants and tastes darn good too!

Papaya Boat

Papaya-Boat-3

Papaya is a common fruit served on breakfast buffets in Thailand. Usually you will find some lime slices as well because papaya fits wonderful with lime juice and the sweetness is well balanced by the tangy and aroma of the lime.

This breakfast inspired me to serve papaya and lime in a new way. It was really amazing and much better than I’ve imagined!

Time to relax

It is time to relax

design2.timetorelaxIf we all could relax for at least half an hour a day, that would really make a difference. Everybody is  always busy these days, with work, children, household, meetings, etc. And don’t forget social media.

tea-ritual-1-15It is a lot to take in and time goes by so quickly. It would not hurt to try to relax half an hour a day during the afternoon or evening.

tea-ritual-1-12Have a nice cup of tea or coffee, or what ever you prefer, but most important is to treat yourself. Take a book or magazine (if you like) and just shut yourself off from all your surroundings.  With that I mean, no tv, no phone, no social media, no work. I know you are thinking, who is she kidding? And where do I find the time?

tea-ritual-1-13Well, that is the whole idea of relaxing…
