I am pretty much obsessed with Wellness Cookbooks these days!  I am sure a new one is released each week and I am there snapping it up within a few days! 

My current favourite is The Healthy Life by Jessica Sepel.  Good good stuff in here.  

I whipped up some porridge last week using a bit of a combination of recipes from the book.  I an a non gluten or wheat eater so don’t tend to do breakfasts like this very often (it is usually bacon and eggs at our place!).  I combined the peanut butter and banana porridge with the sticky date porridge to get a Sticky Peanut butter, Banana and Date Porridge!    Mine was made with quinoa flakes and homemade almond milk – So delicious!

Time for another installation in my Cookbook Crush series and this time I am showing off yet another breakfast!  Interestingly enough I do tend to eat eggs most mornings for breakfast but on special occasions and when I have a little more time, I will whip up some of this delicious Quinoa Porridge from Lola Berry’s 20/20 Diet Cookbook.  

The recipe can be found on page 30 of Lola’s book and is called the Quinoa and Blackberry Porridge.  I have made a slight change and switched the blackberries for blueberries and the result is just as amazing!  Let me know if you give it a go!

I have had a serious cookbook crush lately and can’t get enough of finding and creating new recipes.  Two of my absolute favourites at the moment are Pete Evans Family Food and Healthy Every Day.  I use these two books at least 3-4 times a week when preparing a meal.

These almond and berry pancakes were a treat for breakfast and are made with such nutritious ingredients like almond meal, cinnamon and coconut flour.  Team it with your favourite almond milk berry smoothie and you will not need anything else until dinner.  You can find them in the Healthy Every Day Cookbook on page 17.
