Junk Free Breakfast Ideas

Buckwheat sprouts

Buckwheat sprouts

Steamed Buckwheat Sprouts with Honey and Tahini.

Soak half a cup of organic buckwheat grouts per person in water for 8-12 hours.

Rinse thoroughly and leave to sit in strainer over a bowl.

Three times daily, tip sprouts into the bowl and rinse with fresh water.

They take about three days to grow in summer, longer in winter.

When sprouts are twice as long as the seed, add salt and steam them until soft, looking slightly transparent.

If you like raw food, just warm them – they’ll taste crunchy like corn.

Serve in a bowl with unheated honey and organic tahini to taste.


Hulled Millet

Rinse half a cup of organic hulled millet per person in water, or if you remember, soak it the night before.

Cook in saucepan with 1½ cups of water and salt.

When all water is completely absorbed, serve with unheated honey and organic tahini.

These two seeds are alkalizing compared to wheat which adds to the acidic load.

When people comment on how chirpy I am, I reply that I had birdseed for breakfast!

Poached Eggs on Spinach

Steam spinach (NZ spinach is great) until ready.

Fill about 1 cm deep of water in a fry pan with a squirt of white vinegar which keeps the egg from running wild.

As soon as the egg whites go solid white, serve eggs on top of spinach or silver beet with salt and pepper. I cut the runny eggs and let the yolks mix with the greens. Yum.


 Green Smoothie Raw Soup.

 Great way to get raw vegs if you don’t have any teeth (or want to get alkaline).

 In a blender or food processor –

 Cover blades with water then add

1 raw fertile egg

1/2 – 1 avocado, depending on size

Fresh vegs in season –

lettuce, spinach, coriander, mint, parsley,

cucumber, spring onion, garlic, celery, ginger,

not too much tomato, so it stays green

Celtic or Himalayan salt

Blend smooth then lastly add carrot. Leave the carrots a bit chunky so it can be eaten with a spoon and ‘chewed’.


Lemon Zing

Start the day in an alkalising way !

In a blender –

Cover blades with water

Pick a lemon fresh from the tree, chop in quarters and add to blender, yes skin, pips and all!

Whole foods are good for you.

Serve in a cup with a few drops of stevia or honey…and notice the zing!
