my book is published!

before i start writing this post, i want to say a massive thank you to every single one of you who reads this blog - without your encouragement and support i might never have published (or even attempted to!) my new recipe compilation. your kind words, helpful criticism and genuine wonderfulness have played such an important role in the creation of the healthy breakfast recipes cookbook.

Healthy Breakfast Recipes is a compilation of my favorite morningtime recipes, all made with whole, unprocessed foods, without sugar or refined flour.

i wanted to create a useful and simple resource for people that celebrates my favorite meal of the day, and encourages a little creativity and variation at breakfast. i hope you can pick this up and be inspired to start the day with exciting flavours, textures and ingredients.

the book features over 70 recipes, and has plenty of gluten free, low gi recipes. it's available as a Kindle as well as paperback, and i hope you'll agree that it's a very reasonable price in both formats. you can see a preview on Amazon, and have a sample sent to your smartphone if you would like.

chapters include:
  • traditional breakfasts
  • pancakes & waffles
  • around the world & european
  • eggs, scrambles and omelettes
  • on the go

selected recipes:
  • strawberry buttermilk waffles
  • swiss bircher muesli
  • plum clafoutis
  • huevos rancheros with chorizo and chili
  • spelt, cashew and apricot rolls
  • buckwheat porridge with cinnamon
  • breakfast burritos with grilled banana
  • chocolate peanut butter bars

several of the recipes have already featured on this blog, and are listed in my favorite recipes tab, including cinnamon almond milk and coconut banana waffles.

over the next few weeks and months i will be sharing some of the recipes from the book on NJA, and i'll also be videoing some too, so you can see them in action!

purchase your copy from:

don't you think they'll make great Christmas presents? the cover and illustrations are so beautiful, that had my entire family not already purchased their own copies already, i'd be giving one to each of them along with a packet of homemade granola as gifts...

and please do let me know what you think :)

  6. I've only just found out about your book! Congratulations! That's such an amazing achievement. I've been writing my cookery book for just over a year now. It's taking way longer than I thought it would! It's definitely going to get finished this year though!
