There’s a lot of controversy surrounding breakfast… Is it really the most important meal of the day? Are you the type of person who:
a) sprints to the kitchen at the sound of the alarm to scarf down a jar of overnight oats
b) prefers a more mindful morning experience and enjoy the preparation of a nutrient-dense macro bowl
c) only opens your eyes when the aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the air (bonus points if it’s an adaptogenic mushroom blend)
Hey, if you have your morning routine, kudos to you! But if you haven’t yet sorted out what to eat in the morning, you may fall victim to foods that really aren’t foods at all. Thanks to the food processing industry people have become programmed to believe that breakfast has to come from a box… think sugar-filled cereal products, freezer ready toaster strudels, pre-packaged quick oats flavoured with artificial sweeteners, the list goes on! But what do all of these have in common? None of these foods are foods at all. They are heavily processed, nutritionally void, pseudo-foods that are damaging to your health and well-being.
So what’s an easy alternative that nourishes, soothes and gently stabilized the body upon rising? I’ll give you a hint, it involves a classic breakfast ingredient, eggs!
Check out this recipe for bone broth poached eggs and elevate your breakfast (or lunch or dinner) game, and ultimately enhance your health.
what you’ll need
- 1 cup bone broth, bo&marrow (chicken, beef, pho, mushroom)
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
- 2-3 kale leaves washed and roughly chopped
- 5-6 mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 cherry tomatoes
- 1-2 large (free-range, organic eggs)
- Place garlic, turmeric, ginger, and broth in a small saucepan.
Heat until just simmering, add the mushrooms and cook for a minute.
To poach the eggs simply move the mushrooms to the side of the pot, creating an area to crack your egg into. Gently spoon the broth over the yolks as it simmers.
Add the kale and tomatoes just prior to serving as they soften quickly.
Season with sea salt and ground pepper and serve immediately.
