You will see that most recipes added on my blog will have the three macronutrients: proteins, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. These three musketeers are the perfect combo for a balanced meal, so I aim to include them in all my meals and snacks.
This breakfast is a good example of a balanced meal: I’ve sautéed some green leafy vegetables which are complex carbohydrates and then I’ve drizzled some olive oil on them; olive oil is a healthy fat.
The egg is a great source of protein; I always fry it in either butter, ghee or coconut oil.
Then I’ve added hummus - a rich source of proteins & healthy fats - on oatcakes which are complex carbohydrates.
And there you have it: a balanced meal that should keep you full for a few hours.
Enjoy your brekkie and chew your food thoroughly!
PS. If you think the portion shown in this picture is small, that’s because it is :) You can add more leafy greens, a couple of eggs and some more hummus oatcakes.
