Current nutrition trends tell us that the best breakfast we can give ourselves includes a serve PROTEIN + a serve of GOOD FAT + a serve of SMART CARBS.  If this all sounds like hard work, it’s not.  And these Little Breaky Egg Bowls are a great start.

These Little Breaky Egg Bowls are perfect if you are in a hurry and trying very hard to eat a nourishing breakfast rather than grabbing the kids leftovers or a coffee and banana bread.  Literally 5 minutes and you’re done.

Ingredients (makes 1 Little Breaky Bowl)

  • 2 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1 tbsp Brown Lentils, drained
  • 1/4 Avocado, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1 wedge Lemon
  • 1 tsp Butter or Olive Oil


  1. Lightly beat together the eggs and the sour cream and season to taste with salt & pepper.
  2. If you like to scramble your eggs in a pan, add a little olive oil and/or butter to a non stick pan on a moderate heat and add the eggs. Try not to move the eggs around too much or the egg and liquid will separate. Cook until 'just cooked' - that way the egg will stay silky smooth. If you prefer to pop the eggs in the microwave, run a little butter or olive oil around the inside of your little bowl, add the eggs and then cook on high for 15 - 20 seconds. Stir and then cook for a further 10 - 15 seconds if required (remember don't cook the eggs for too long as they will go rubbery)
  3. Once your egg are cooked, add the lentils, avocado, cherry tomatoes and a squeeze of lemon. Season to taste and if you feel like a little heat to get your metabolism up and running for the day, add some chilli flakes or a dusting of cayenne pepper.

If you're not a fan of lentils, you could switch this out for another 'smart carb'.  Try a few pieces of baked sweet potato (perhaps left over from a roast dinner), some Mexican Black Beans, a tablespoon of cooked Quinoa, a tablespoon of Brown Rice or at a stretch, a small piece of toasted good quality sourdough bread.
