The weekend special: a clean-green brunch menu

Casey Warrener
12 January, 2017

On a mission to get fit this year? We've got more than a few ideas to start your day right.

If you’re on a mission to get fit this year, you might want to skip the mimosas and maple-soaked pancakes for brunch. Does this mean you need to blow a bucket on acai bowls and turmeric drinks? Absolutely not. The most virtuous among us will be making bulletproof coffee before our morning workout, and then refuelling with a green detox omelette and anti-inflammatory juice. If you’re after dishes to satisfy your cravings in a more natural way, you’ll find those too. Think Bounty bars in a jar or apple pie in a glass.

Stay hydrated

You can’t go past Green Kitchen Smoothies for liquid nutrition. Whether a simple raspberry number or a more adventurous mix of avocado, mango and lime, the selection here will keep your morning drinking interesting. Kimberley Parsons' Yoga Kitchen has a juice to give you that healthy glow, and Spoon offers a refreshing green smoothie. If you’re looking for substitutes for your morning coffee or tea, try Kate Bradley’s homemade chai or David Frenkiel’s ‘affogato’.

Bowls to get you out of bed

Breakfast bowls are big right now, and we’ve got a few examples to envy those cafe concoctions. If you’re after a sweet start, David Frenkiel’s pretty pink breakfast bowl is packed with berries, currants, banana, protein powder and nut butter, making it more than just a drink masquerading as a meal. Sprinkle it with a few edible flowers for the Instagram effect. Bircher is a classic brekkie bowl and so simple to achieve. Soak oats overnight, prepare a fruit compote to store in the fridge, and you’ve got a delicious way to start the day waiting for when you wake up. If you prefer savoury flavours, this green bowl by Kimberley Parsons is packed full of goodness, including nuts, grains and seeds, and flavour by way of halloumi, garlic and citrus. If you’re looking to turn up the heat, try this Mexican-inspired bowl from Spoon, with its duo of sweet, bright and spicy salsas.

Treat yourself

You’re not going to feel like juices, grains and greens all of the time, which is why it’s a good idea to find some healthy substitutes for your favourite vices. Want a stack of pancakes this Saturday? Try Kate Bradley’s apple version with maple-cashew ice cream. Need something you can cut into quickly when those cravings hit? Bake a loaf of Kimberley Parsons’ banana, almond and chia bread. This chocolate and lime granola from Spoon is another sweet start you can have pre-prepared, as is this creamy Peach Melba. And for a special weekend treat, why not try these pumpkin and almond waffles topped with yoghurt and raspberry chia jam (tip: make the jam ahead).
