Guaca-Eggs

Today we have a nice and easy side dish or snack to serve at parties and family gatherings!

These are specially handy to keep in the fridge for a quick “pick me up”.

GUACA-EGGS! 

Ingredients;

  • 12 Boiled Eggs.
  • Homemade Guacamole (Recipe below).
  • 1 Can of Tuna in Olive Oil.
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder.
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder.
  • S&P to taste.
Method;
Cut eggs in half and remove yolks placing them in a bowl. Mix guacamole with egg yolk mixture until desired consistency (I like mine a little runny so add more guacamole if you want!). Stir in the whole can of tuna and mix thoroughly, add garlic and onion powder and a touch of S&P to taste.
Fill eggs with guacamole/ tuna mixture and let it set in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes.
Enjoy! 
*Note the three little eggs with hot sauce sneakin’ at the bottom of the plate, the recipe for them is the same but instead of mixing the yolks with the guacamole you use tuna and a little hot sauce. Yum!
Homemade Guacamole Recipe;
Here’s the recipe for my very own guacamole, now keep in mind that I DON’T like my guacamole spicy so I mix in a few onions and cherry tomatoes to make it somewhat sweet, just a personal preference!

A great way to get mono-unsaturated fats!

Ingredients;
  • 2-3 ripe avocados.
  • 8 sweet cherry tomatoes.
  • 1 shallot minced.
  • 2 cloves of garlic.
  • 1 tsp lime juice.
  • S&P
Peel the avocados and mash them into a bowl, chop all the ingredients nicely and add to mixture. Mix them throughout until you get a paste like consistency, add lime juice and some salt and pepper to taste.
Sometimes the simplest and easiest recipes are the tastiest! This is definitely one of them.
Hope you enjoy them!

Feel good snacks!

Today I wanted to share with you a very quick yet tasty snack or side dish for a family dinner that may surprise everyone!

My local farmer’s market happens to have one of the best sources of dairy I’ve ever tried, so I stocked up on some buffalo milk, yoghurt and mozzarella this weekend.

Raw Buffalo Mozzarella

With a very short ingredient list and a very nutritious profile this snack will definitely keep the munchies away and make you feel great!

MINI CAPRESE SNACKS

Serves 24 (Approx 4 people)

Ingredients;

  • 12 High quality plum or cherry tomatoes (source locally for better flavour!)
  • 2 buffalo mozzarella balls
  • 24 wooden skewers
  • 6 thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Cut cherry tomatoes in half and mozzarella cheese into small bite-sized balls and mix in a bowl, now add olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh basil and mix well.
Carefully assemble skewers like in the picture and place in a plate with some extra balsamic vinegar mix to dip.
Sprinkle some sea salt, extra basil and pepper to taste!

Yet another “dessert” breakfast recipe – Primal Pancakes!!!

Hey guys!

I know most of you are happy with your eggs and bacon for breakfast but some days you just need that little “something” .

For those days where conventional breakfast cravings kicks, or if you just want to treat your partner to a nice paleo breakfast in bed, I present you Primal Pancakes!

Ingredients;

  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour (desiccated coconut works just as good)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 large egg and 1 cup egg whites (or 4 whole eggs if not using egg whites)
  • 1 tbsp macadamia nut butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
This makes 6 large pancakes or 10 small ones. I’m usually good with 3 of them and some fruit or almond butter to complete this nutritious breakfast.
As you can see you get a nice kick of MCT’s from the coconut along with a nice serving of fiber and protein (using more egg whites would improve the protein/fat ratio, play with it)
There you have it folks, hope you enjoy them!
