Breakfast isn’t the most important meal of the day.
It’s actually having nutrients that counts and most of us do a less than ideal job of it first thing.
Throw out those boring toast and cereal combos, come to the ‘Breakfasts you’ll actually want to eat workshop’ and learn how to make nourishing meals that will set you up for the day.
This hands on class is suitable for both morning people and those that would rather press the snooze button until there is no time left for breakfast.
The theory of a good breakfast
The workshop starts with the ‘theory of a good breakfast’, a 30-minute talk on what makes a nourishing breakfast.
Based on the latest science, the talk will cover what to add and what to avoid as well as shortcuts for boosting nutrient density.
Think less GCSE science and more along the lines of “what will actually make a difference here that is genuinely achievable”.
Let’s get cooking
Theory is great but it’s the execution of it that counts.
The latter part of the workshop is hands on experience where you’ll get to learn how to cook/ assemble 4 nourishing breakfast recipes.
The menu consists of:
the perfect smoothie
make ahead saucy baked eggs, parsley crumble
carrot cake overnight oats
herby quinoa protein pot with harissa eggs (or harissa butter beans), lemon cashew mayo
And yes, you will get to take the food away so pack some Tupperware pots.
The boring (but necessary) bit
All ingredients and most materials are included. You’ll just need to bring a jar and a couple of take away containers, ideally of the glass variety. Link here in case you need it: Glass container
The total workshop time is 2 hours made up of 30 minutes for the talk and approximately 1.5 hours of cooking/ assembling.
The food options are vegetarian, gluten-free and all but one dish is dairy-free (it’s pretty easy to switch out the dairy in case this is a concern).
The workshop can be adapted to be vegan but please note you’ll be in the presence of (high-welfare) eggs and (organic) feta cheese.
The workshop takes place in my apartment in Mapperley, Nottingham so places are strictly limited to 5. Sadly there is no disabled access.
You will be provided with the exact address and what to bring upon booking.
