It’s hard for me to believe that I haven’t had any sweets or cakes for, how long now, three weeks at least? And the biggest surprise is that I don’t miss them! I only had a small amount of dark chocolate twice, but I think that’s ok because chocolate is healthy in small amounts. But for someone who had to eat sweets every single day, this is amazing! 🙂
And not only that, but I also eat way less bread than I used to. If any, I eat it for breakfast and that’s all, which is another miracle.
Here are some ideas for a healthy breakfast.
Whole wheat bread, mustard, eggplant paste (or pate), sprouts and olives.
To make the eggplant paste (as I like to call it), just cut eggplant in half or in larger chunks, bake it at moderate to high heat until it’s not watery (about half an hour or a bit more), then peal it and put it in a food processor and add what ever you like to it – salt, pepper, garlic, maybe a tsp of mustard, parsley, oregano, olives…You can add peppers or cheese to the mix too. Go wild! 🙂 It can sit in the refrigerator for 4-5 days and still taste great, and it can be used as a dip or as a side dish. Great stuff!
with lots of cucumber slices on top.
And you have a tasty and healthy meal that contains lots of vitamins and fiber.
Sprouts are a vitamin bomb and they are so easy to grow in your home. There are some differences depending on what seeds you want to sprout, but in general, all you need is the seeds (alfalfa, sunflower, quinoa, beans…), a glass jar, a piece of gauze or bandage, and a rubber band. From this
in just a few days! You can find many tips about sprouting online, but if you have any questions, please ask. And of course, there are many ways to use sprouts in your food, not only in sandwiches. 🙂
