Guten TAG lovely people.
So – you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a whole week – SHOCK HORROR! Well, It has been my birthday – I just turned 27 and I think it’s going to be an awesome year! I spent a very LONG weekend in London seeing friends and family and it was absolutely what I needed. Thanks to my family and friends- particularly my parents – for making it so immense. My mum cooked such a ridiculously epic meal on Sunday.. when people sat down to eat, nobody said anything for a full 4 minutes because the food was so nice. I miss her cooking!
I went for Tapas with some friends on Friday night – at a place in Brixton called Gremio. It has a nice bar/restaurant vibe and the food is really good! I think most South Londoners will be familiar with it, but I thought I would include it just in case anyone wants Tapas in London. The prices are pretty reasonable!
One of my birthday presents from my parents, was Nourish. It’s a book by Sadie Frost and friends which has some great, unique healthy recipes as well as general tips on exercise and healthy living and I wanted to do a Nourish book review for you. The food photos and styling are beautiful, and it’s just a really interesting book. One of the recipes that struck me was the sweet omelette with lemon and poppyseed. I don’t know if I am the only one, but I have never come across a sweet omelette.. and it’s actually a great idea for people who love a pancake but want to avoid wheat and flour. While I would probably add half a cup of buckwheat or spelt flour to make the consistency slightly less eggy – it was definitely a nice concept and I think if I had added more agave nectar to the omelette it would have been better (I have adapted the recipe).
Another book that I got was Deliciously Ella’s book – and MAN did I want a spiralizer (a machine that makes vegetables into long strips). Luckily my sister got me one for my birthday – so I am kitted out for courgettini (courgette pasta). Keep your eyes peeled for this on the blog.
As part of her new book launch – here is a video on how to avoid bad eating habits!
- 2 free range eggs
- 1 tsp poppyseeds
- agave nectar or maple syrup
- rind of 1 lemon
- 1 heaped tsp coconut oil
- agave nectar or maple syrup for drizzling
- Beat the eggs together until pale and fluffy - the more your beat them the lighter the omeletter will be
- Add in half the poppyseeds, half the lemon rind, a tsp of agave nectar or maple syrup and mix together
- Place a pan on medium heat and add the coconut oil until it covers the whole pan - add in the egg mix
- Cook omelette until it begins to go golden brown, then flip - the second side will only need about 30 seconds
- Serve and add yoghurt, agave, a sprinkling of poppyseed and lemon rind!
