Kitchen sink omelette waffle

I love to add whatever is in the fridge into my omelette, hence the kitchen omelette waffle sink title! A little bit of this, a little bit of that, cheese is a definite (unless I am on my whole 30 weeks). By then adding it to a waffle maker, well, it becomes a special fancy omelette waffle and it is then also super portable (good for packed lunches) and surprisingly more delicious!

You make this like you would any omelette, I serve mine with a kitchen sink salad, but that recipe another day……!

Eggs are natures perfect package, I like to eat them every day. Rich in macro and micronutrients, you get a great hit of nourishment. If you struggle to digest eggs, then I suggest supporting your digestive system by adding some herbs to this recipe and having a shot of apple cider vinegar in some water either before or after eating it. This omelette is a great brunch recipe and will get some good oohs and ahhs! I like it with some guacamole too!

Nurture Your Life- Your REAL FOOD weaning guide

articlesNurture Your Life Loula Natural fi

Nurture Your Life ebook Loula Natural

Nurture Your Life is the second in my series of books on natural health (the first was Culture Your Life published 2014). Children’s nutrition is a big passion of mine. As a Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist I see many children with chronic conditions like persistent illness, skin conditions, energy and growth issues and a staggering increase in children with allergies and intolerances. With two children of my own, I feel compelled to help these kids find their strength and return them to health to help prevent more serious conditions in their future.

Weaning a child onto food is a very powerful first step in a child’s relationship with food. A relationship which is of fundamental importance to health. Think of your own love/hate relationship with food. There are so many non-foods in our diets in the west, our supermarkets are sometimes almost 80% stocked with chemical, processed and unhealthy foods. Conventional avenues still persist that rice cereal (which may be hugely inflammatory to an immature digestive system) is the food we should be starting our kids on. This book does not recommend that route.

I hope you enjoy reading it and ask questions, keep reading, become informed as to how the body works. Change your own relationship to food if need be. Lets start our kids off the right way, with foods to nurture their life from the beginning.

Blender Waffles

Blender Waffles Loula Natural

When I was 20 I went to the U.S.A to be a camp counsellor in New Haven, Connecticut. I absolutely loved it. I was there for almost 3 months, 8 weeks at camp and then almost 4 weeks traveling as south as South Carolina (I absolutely loved Charleston) and as north as Toronto. I was introduced to many new culinary species on that trip (man the American’s have rubbish cheese and chocolate- well they did in those days my blogger friends insist things have changed!) but the thing that stuck for me was waffles with maple syrup and bacon. Stuck-like-glue, I just love the salty sweet combination.

Over the years I always ordered it in a restaurant and make pancakes all the time but waffles always seemed like such a faff. NOT ANYMORE!

Blender waffles she says! My pancake making days were instantly changed when I found blender pancakes, the mix of healthy fats and protein in the eggs and almond/coconut flour, plus the natural sweetness of the banana has given my kids pancakes way more often- even on school days! Grain free too which make these perfect for me and my family. So I took this combo and played with the consistency and thus blender waffles are born!

I now make 2 different types; Chocolate Waffles (very rich chocolatey flavour with zero added sugar) and Vanilla Waffles. I have included both for you- you’re welcome!

I love 2 fried eggs cooked in ghee and sprinkled with ghee for breakfast. I serve it with some sauerkraut or kimchee for a yummy balanced breakfast. Recently I have wanted more and fancied trying egg muffins or crustless quiche as they are also known. I love these recipes for eggs on the go. They can be made and then frozen or are egg-cellent in lunch boxes (sorry I couldn’t resist!)

Banana, Date and Sesame Muffins

It was the last day of term party at my daughter’s kindergarten this week. Sharing food at school is not allowed for many reasons but at the end of term they are able to bring food for sharing.

There is a no nut rule in the school and so I wanted to make sure my daughter was able to have food she could make herself, can eat herself (she has sensitivities to wheat, some dairy and has a strong reaction to refined sugar) and also be excited to share with her friends.

We looked through all my recipe books and we decided on a banana and date bread recipe. I have adapted and added nutrition to it, so that we are all happy! They tasted great too! We are gluten free in the house so I used Tapioca, Oat and Coconut flour, I then used  kefir to keep them moist and light. Since I could not use almond flour (no nuts) I added black sesame seeds which contain more antioxidants.

We also made Cinnamon Salty Sweet Popcorn for her to take too. I sent a whole box and none of them came back so that seems like a success!!

Light and moist, the dates helped to add texture and sweetness to the muffins. The mixture was wet without being sloppy and by keeping the muffins small by using this pan (from Amazon but in Hong Kong I bought it on Shanghai St) the cooking time was only 10 mins!  About the right amount of time to keep my daughter engaged with the task!

Banana, Date and Sesame Muffins
A delicious gluten and nut free muffin. Sweetened with dates and coconut sugar, these muffins are a very satisfying treat for all ages (1 and up as it contains eggs)
