Sweeeeet Brunch

22 Mar

After being in Australia for nearly two years (tears fall as I reminisce and dream of being back there…Melbourne I LOVE you!) I became quite accustomed to their vocabulary/slang and their love of healthy food! So this morning I was deciding on porridge or eggs…and the result was definitely ‘sweeeet!’ (basically means awesome). So, sorry it is not sweet as in sugary…which isn’t a good choice for breakfast/brunch anyway unless you’re in France indulging in a light, flakey, buttery croissant – YUM! OR a bowl of fruit :).
What I made was toasted rye bread with avocado, mushrooms, a poached egg, and a dollop of tomato sauce. Protein, good fats AND low GI carbs there!

I made the perfect Poached egg…best one i’ve ever made! I do it by simmering water in a pan, add a drop of white wine vinegar, crack the egg into a small ramekin then carefully slide it into the simmering water and cook for about 4 minutes then drain on kitchen paper…perfect. Runny middle rocks!

Now…I bet you’re thinking “ok all this healthy stuff is nice but what about the cakes promised?!” :p
Well remember I cook/bake to keep myself sane…for health and for happiness. Being healthy now and then is a priority, but being indulgent is not a bad thing either! What is it that they say…everything in moderation?
I do have some sweet things in store for you, this weekend I have a dessert request for a for a dinner party so I will be posting that on Sunday hopefully. I also have two birthdays coming up which I think will be cupcake gifts, and lets not forget easter goodies!
Happy Thursday! 😀
