Creating a beautiful meal to feed to your family and friends is one of the most satisfying acts for the body and soul. Finding a delicious recipe, sourcing yummy ingredients and taking the time to assemble them is a way for you to express your love and gratitude for the lucky recipients. I recently invited my fellow goddesses over for a healthy and delicious brunch.
I’m big on always trying to create balanced meals – whole grains, healthy fats, protein, and plenty of vegetables. When picking a brunch menu, I try to incorporate a few items that will look beautiful on the plate but will provide action packed nutrients. One of my go-to brunch items is avocado toast. There are endless variations of this basic nutrient packed nibble making this an easy anchor dish for the plate. I do love me some greens! A yummy green salad always makes a nice addition to any meal. And for extra points, a small cup of soup or something warm will always make a good brunch better! Here’s how I created a meal to make an ordinary Sunday absolutely delicious.
Here’s a simple, healthy avocado toast. If you’re not a fan of smoked salmon you could put a poached egg or just sprinkle the top with micro-greens and/or seeds.
Toast the spelt bread and spread a healthy layer of the avocado mash. Sprinkle with diced red onion, tomatoes and top with smoked salmon. Squeeze a little lemon on the salmon.
Simple Kale Salad
Pantry Pea and Dill Soup
If you want to serve soup, you can either buy a pre-made fresh soup of your choosing or find your favorite recipe. I have fallen in love with Sarah Britton’s Naturally Nourished cookbook. It has some of the easiest, healthiest dishes I’ve seen all in one book. Her simple pantry pea soup will definitely impress your guests.
Make it extra by topping it with Lemon Olive Oil – it makes EVERYTHING taste better!
