Breaky Stack

 

Ingredients:

1 slice wholegrain toast

1/4-1/2 avocado, sliced or mashed with a drizzle of lemon juice & cracked pepper

5 cherry tomatoes or 1 whole tomato, sliced

1-2 soft poached egg or boiled egg

 

Method:

  • Super easy!

  • In a saucepan, heat enough water to poach or boil eggs.

  • If poaching: warm the water on medium heat until tiny bubbles begin to form. Crack eggs gently into water, leaving a little bit of space between them. *Crack the eggs very close to the water, to cause the least amount of movement!

  • Keep the water at the same heat, so that it continues simmering. You do not need to let the water boil, as there is enough heat in the water to cook the eggs as is. 

  • Poach for around 3 minutes for a soft centre.

  • If Boiling: In a saucepan, boil enough water to submerge a full egg. Once the water has started bubbling, place egg/s into the water gently with a spoon.

  • Soft boiling (runny centre), for a 700g egg will take around 5mins-5:30. *Play around & experiment as to how you like your eggs!

  • While your eggs are poaching/boiling, pop your bread into the toaster, slice your tomato & avocado and assemble your Breaky stack (as in photo).

  • Peel your boiled egg, slice and place ontop of stack.

  • If poaching, use a spatula or holey serving spoon to remove egg, as well as draining the water away. Place on top of stack!

 

Enjoy your breakfast!

 

Optional:

  • Sautee 2 handfuls of spinach in a fry-pan with 1tsp of coconut oil. Or can also add raw spinach.

  • Sprinkle chilli flakes or sesame seeds on top.

A few facts about Sprouting

  • Sprouting a seed (grain, nut or legume) is the process of germination. This is when a dormant seed starts to become a plant. At this point you are consuming a live food!

  • When you soak & sprout- you decrease or neutralize anti-nutrients (phytic acid- known as phytates & enzyme inhibiors), which can actually inhibit nutrient absorption.

*Phytic acid impairs absorption of Zinc, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium & Copper. Phytic acid (phytates) can inhibit nutrients absorbed in that particular food eaten. For example, raw almonds contain phytates. Almonds also contain calcium. The calcium availability is decreased due to phytates binding to the calcium. 

* Enzyme inhibitors can have the same action however, can also bind to nutrients already present in the body.

*Both of these reasons why soaking and/or sprouting is beneficial.

  • Soaking increases the plant-protein content. You increase that availabe protein content able to be absorbed.

  • For all the reasons above, when you sprout, you are soaking (activating) and you are increasing digestibility, which therefore allows your body to utilise the nutrients much better!
