In my many years consulting as a naturopath and assessing patients diets, the one meal where many people struggled (nutritionally), was breakfast. I found that so many people were searching for more energy, productivity and better general health; spending large sums of money on supplements and searching for the ‘magic bullet,’ but also neglecting the one meal that could improve both their short and long-term health.
Those patients that took my advice and changed their ways reported at follow up consults that since eating a nourishing breakfast, they snacked less and found it easier to make healthier food choices right throughout the day. They had better concentration, a happier mood and more energy to exercise. They also had the motivation to prepare a healthy dinner in the evening.
In my professional opinion, if you want to improve your overall health and wellbeing, start the day right with a nourishing breakfast.

I’ve also put together this beautiful Spiced Breakfast Muffin recipe that I know you are going to just love. It’s gluten, grain and dairy-free, but super light and fluffy in texture. Its also really easy to whip up and the muffins freeze really well too. My kids often have these on their way to early morning swim squads – perfect high energy food! Enjoy G x
Makes 12 large muffins
200g sweet potato, peeled and diced 1-2cm
1 large green apple, peeled and diced
250g (1 cup) nut butter*
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
2 teaspoons mixed spice
Pinch of sea salt
3 free-range or organic eggs
85g (¼ cup) sweetener (rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup), optional
30g (¼ cup) buckwheat flour
2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
*I recipe tested this with almond butter, cashew butter and also ABC (almond, brazil, cashew).
You can sub the nut butter with tahini and or sunflower seed butter (Sunbutter). I’ve also had feedback that using regular butter half half with the nut butter works well too (though haven’t tested it myself).
You can certainly use another flour if you wish – any flour (except coconut) or even almond meal can be subbed 1:1.
I just adore this recipe, it will definitely become a staple in my household. I’d love to hear what you think, post a comment below and let me know what you think.
