The Breakfast Project

I love breakfast. Oats are a staple. Eggs are great too. But the fact is that I get bored and busy so breakfast seems like hard work. Especially on a large scale each day. The question is how to provide healthy, low GI food for the family to start the day. We have purged the pantry of old school cereals and we are trying to quit the sugar thing, albeit with moderate success. So I am super excited about this new e-book from the girls Charmaine Dennis and Milly Dabrwoski from Fertile Ground Health. Phoenix in the Box is a project that encourages us to be passionate and intentional about the food choices we make to start our day. Today is exciting as it is the official launch day this Monday. You can buy an e-book for a very little investment. If you want to try the OMG Tasty Corn Bread check this  link out for a free recipe.

  1. Welcome back!Will certainly have a look. We love our breakfast, too and have reduced honey to the minimum.
    The only cereal with no added sugar( Vitabrits) and oats with fruit is what I try to serve everybody….plus special egg dishes on the weekend.New ideas will help!

  2. As promised, our favorite ricotta hotcakes recipe.We usually have them on weekends, but I tried a weekday this week and it was doable.Hope you like it!
    1 1/3 cups ricotta(low fat from the deli or the ones in pots, it doesn't matter)
    3/4 cups milk
    4 eggs separated
    1 cup plain flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    a pinch of salt
    50g butter(I use just a bit to prepare the pan)

    Place ricotta, egg yolks and milk in a bowl,mix to combine(don't worry about lumps)
    Sift flour, baking powder and salt into ricotta mixture.
    Beat egg whites to stiff peaks point.Fold egg whites through batter with a metal spoon.
    Grease non-sticking frying pan and drop 2 tablespoons of batter per hotcake, low medium heat for 2 minutes each side.
    Transfer to a plate and keep them warm.
    You can eat them with berries(frozen or fresh), bananas, and greek yogurt.The kids like a touch of golden syrup or honey, or vanilla essence in the yogurt to make it sweeter.It is VERY light and tasty!You can eat them with ham, tomatoes or mushrooms if you prefer savory breakfasts.
    Healthy and easy.XXX

  3. I'm sure you can try gluten free options, or these other flours you've been using. I have no experience with any of them, but whatever you use, Sus, try the one you think will be lighter, because the beauty of this hotcake is how light it is.Let me know if it worked!xx
