When I was studying nutrition this was the recipe of the moment, and still one of my all time favourite health hacks. Its so simple and nutritious (high in protein and good fats, free of any nasties) and is perfect for the whole family including little ones. It can be made sweet or savoury, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. What's not to love?!
Ingredients (serves 1)
1/4 cup ground LSA (linseed, sunflower & almond) or flaxseed meal
Spices to taste- inspiration includes:
Carrot cake- 1 tsp ground cinnamon & 1/2 grated carrot,
Chai- 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Lemon & poppyseed- 2 tbsp lemon, 1 tbs poppyseed
Chocolate- 1 tbsp cocoa, 2 tbsp milk (any type)
Fruit- 1/2 mashed bannana/ 1/2 cup berries/grated apple & walnut/grated pear & ginger

1. Crack egg in ramekin/mug and whisk in spices/flavourings.
2 Add LSA/flax meal and mix

4. Enjoy! I like to add a spoonful of coconut yoghurt for breakfast, or slice and eat as savoury bread option for lunch
