What is most wonderful in waking up in a Saturday or Sunday morning? No work:) And of course,
the time to whip up some healthy veggies for breakfast.
Here are some of my favorite personal recipes which you can try:
Boiled Camote (Young) Leaves and Cucumber
I mix cucumber slices with boiled camote leaves for a nutritious combination.
For a hassle-free eating, I take out the seeds from the cucumber.
Top it with this homemade sauce:
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Vinegar
1/2 Cup water
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Whole tomato, sliced lengthwise
Boil all ingredients in a saucepan, once the sauce thickens a bit, or to the consistency preferred, it is done.
Boiled Egg with Fresh Green and Ripe Tomatoes
2-3 boiled egg/s, sliced whichever way you prefer:), arrange it on one side of the plate.
1-2 tomato/es, cube size, add a bit of salt and mix. Place it beside the slices of egg/s.
When I slice the tomato/es, I do it in plate so I can save the juice and pour it in the egg/s slices.
Also, I do not mix the tomato and the eggs at once when serving as it affects the taste of both.
Cucumber and Pineapple Salad
Cucumber is often times served with vinegar. For my children to eat cucumber, I thought of
preparing it in a way more palatable for their taste buds.
1 medium-size cucumber, sliced
1 small pack of pineapple tidbits
salt to taste
Pour the pineapple tidbits in a bowl, add a pinch of salt to taste.
Then add the sliced cucumber.
Chill before serving.
When preparing the cucumber, be sure to wash all utensils, specially the knife, including the
handle. Then wash your hands. Be sure not to touch anything while peeling the cucumber.
Nothing beats than starting your day right with a healthy breakfast.
My bonus recipe: Instead of coffee or milk, I have a special morning routine - Malunggay Lemonade.
It is refreshing and good for cleansing too.
Boil 3 cups of water
Upon boiling, add 1 cup of malunggay leaves.
Let it boil for 3-5 minutes.
Serve in cups.
Squeeze 2 calamansis
Add brown sugar to taste
