Brunch

Trying really hard to fast from my last evening meal through to lunch/brunch time and actually this is proving to be much easier than I had envisaged. Black coffee has been my go to breakfast drink and I love it. I don’t think I will ever go back to adding milk which is a real turnaround for me as I would NEVER have taken my coffee black, cappuccino for me every time; no matter what time in the day it was (don’t tell the Italians in our family they would have been appalled at my afternoon cappuccino – so British)!!

Actually amazed that I rarely feel hungry in the mornings anymore; I wonder how many people simply eat three meals a day because that’s what we’ve been conditioned to do. It’s actually a very sane concept to eat the right foods when you feel hungry, as opposed to the wrong foods three times a day.

Brunch for me today was leftovers from the fridge (serves one).

2 eggs

A little butter

Handful of kale

4 slices of chorizo

1 mushroom sliced

Half an avocado

Few slices of mozzarella

Half a red/half yellow tomato

Basil leaves

    Add some butter to a pan and gently fry the kale until a little crispy (then add some salt and pepper).
    Once crispy remove from the pan and put to one side, then add the mushroom and quickly pan fry. Once they are a golden colour remove the mushrooms and place with the kale.
    Then add the whisked eggs to the pan. Cook the eggs until almost firm.
    Now add the chorizo slices and the mushrooms.
    Finally, remove from the pan onto a plate and add the kale on top of the omelette, then add the slices of avocado, chopped tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.

Now sit down, feet up and enjoy – Buon Appetito!
