What better way to use up old vegetables left over in the fridge (and hide the flavour) than make them into veggie fritters. I could eat these for breakfast, lunch or dinner or a snack for that matter.
But my favourite combination is topped with salsa and a poached egg, and possibly some bacon for a delicious breakfast!
An easy breakfast that you can make ahead of time or enjoy with a cup of coffee for your mid morning snack. The fresh pop of blueberries goes so well with the delicious caramel of the dates for a flavour packed muffin!

I eat this Bircher muesli basically every morning before I head off to work – except maybe in winter, where I switch it up to porridge – because well Melbourne is cold in the morning!
I have eaten this for breakfast for as long as I can remember – so why am I so obsessed with it?
Oats are a great source of valuable soluble fibre called beta-glucan, which helps to reduce cholesterol levels as well as reduce blood sugar levels and your insulin response. This is a vital thing you want out of your breakfast, as it limits the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ you can get throughout the day when your body reacts to foods you eat.
In addition to the benefits of oats, the grated apple adds a little bit of natural sweetness, flavour and a valuable source of vitamins and minerals! Topped off with berries for antioxidants and walnuts for healthy fats to feed your brain!

Tip: I make this for four ways worth (so for a single person, double the recipe) and keep it in the fridge for a quick breakfast. Only add toppings on the day you are going to eat it!
Food and Nutrition are my absolute jam and bringing them to you is an easy, bite sized way is what I live for!
I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet, often finding myself on the floor – usually a result of tripping over my own feet. This might have something to do with the fact that I am 6’3 (or 190cm) aka a giant amongst most of my friends.
I love to make a mess in the kitchen, writing isn’t really my thing, but I have vowed to get better so that I can share my journey and passion with all you of amazing people!!
