Scrumptious Apple Scramble

Scrumptious Apple Scramble

I’m not typically a fan of cooked fruit, but somehow using crisp and tangy Granny Smith apples, with copious amounts of butter and cinnamon, it magically¬†works for me. ¬†This scramble doesn’t even seem much like eggs, but more of a porridge or pudding (that’s not too sweet). ¬†I think that this is an absolutely delicious and unique way to spice up your boring breakfast regime!

Smothered Mushrooms and Greens

Smothered Mushrooms and Greens

 
 
 
I love mushrooms, and I love greens. ¬†Kale however is the only green that’s a little bit harder for me to eat, so I have to find creative ways to prepare it. ¬†This dish definitely fits the bill. ¬†Packed full of nutrients, this can be a great side dish, or simply a quick and healthy lunch.
 
If you’re not so keen on kale, try swapping it out for swiss chard. ¬†The texture and flavor of swiss chard is much more subtle than kale, and even my toddler enjoys it!
 
And did you know that mushrooms contain some of the most powerful natural medicines on the planet? So pair some insanely healthy mushrooms with some vitamin-packed super greens and your body will certainly be thanking you!
