Goodmorning! Ready for a delish natural vitamin/fibre/protein packed smoothie to start your day?? I totally made up the name for this by using LEO as a cute short form. The actual full name would have been Stawberry Mango Lettuce, Egg white & Oatmeal smoothie so I thought I’d make it easier on you all and shorten it like we do with BLT. haha. 🙂 So I know to some this combination of flavours sounds weird and not to appealing but if you’ve never tried a smoothie with these ingredients before, then your in for a surprise! The oat flavour pairs really well with the fruit and the romaine blends so you hardly know it’s there, covered by the sweet taste of strawberry and mango. Plus egg whites are a great source of protein without adding any flavour. Overall I loved the tangy/sweet taste of this shake! I will be making it again! Let me know if you try it :).

 

Serves 1-2 (This makes a lot! so you could probably turn it into 2 servings if you’d like!)

Ingredients:fr_2444_size880

-1/2 cup liquid egg whites

-1 cup frozen strawberries(140g)

-3/4 cup frozen mango(140g)

-2 tbsp large flake or rolled oats

-1 tbsp flax seed

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional but recommended for a thicker smoothie!)

-Optional: pinch of sweetener of choice(I didn’t add any but you can if you like your smoothies sweeter!)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender until very smooth! Serve in a bowl and eat with a spoon or a cup with a straw, whichever way it will be delicious! Enjoy!

Brighten up any cloudy morning with a beautiful breakfast of sunny-side up eggs over fresh avocado lettuce wraps. These little wraps will keep you full for hours with a large serving of healthy fats, fibre and protein. This recipe is also paleo and vegetarian friendly! This perfect breakfast can’t get any better…

Serves 1:

Ingredients:
-2 large romaine leaves
-2 thick slices of a large tomato chopped (1/2 a small tomato)
-1/2 a large avocado sliced thinly
-1-2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
-1 whole chopped green onion
-1 pinch of garlic powder/onion powder
-1 pinch of chili pepper flakes(optional for added spice)
-salt/pepper to taste
-2 large eggs + extra salt/pepper to taste

Directions: Place the 2 romaine leaves on a large plate and sprinkle tomato, avocado, red onion, green onion, garlic/onion powder and red chili pepper flakes on top. Meanwhile, preheat a frying pan over low-medium heat sprayed with a little olive oil cooking spray. Cook 2 eggs until just set(middle still runny) by cooking gently on each side for about 1-2minutes. (while cooking sprinkle well with salt and pepper).
Take off the hot eggs and top each romaine leaf with one each. Grab a fork and knife & break the yolks of each egg letting the beautiful yolk spill over your lettuce wraps! Enjoy!

I’ve always loved the fact that egg yolks create their own delicious sauce!
