Keeping daycare lunches interesting with eggs and bacon. My cherub loves these little cups of yum and they are simple enough for kids to make too. Getting kids involved in cooking means that they are learning amazing and fun skills but also they know what is in their food and are more likely to eat them because they made them.
The idea of these is to have the bacon as the ‘crust’ in replacing the traditional pastry you would normally have. They are a great freezer option and great made ahead of time for picnics and parties.
Give them a go this week.

Just made the best tasting ‘nola’ (aka granola, cereal, muesli….whatever you call it) so I have to share my triumphs.
It tastes just like coco pops but it’s good for you!!! My cherub is impressed with her chocolate for breakfast.
1/4 Cup Almonds
1/4 Cup Cashews
1/4 Cup Walnuts
1/4 Cup Macadamia Nuts
1/4 Cup Sunflower seeds
1/4 Cup Pepitas
1/4 Cup Goji Berries
1 Tbsp Chia seeds
1 Tbsp Cinnamon Powder
1 Tbsp Mesquite Powder
2 Tbsp Cacao Powder
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1-2 Tbsp Maple Syrup (optional)
Step two Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes
1 Cup Sprouted Buckwheat (Buckinis)
1. On an oven tray combine all the nuts and seeds
2. Add powders, oil and maple
4. Pop in an oven at 200c
5. After 5 minutes mix on the tray(you don’t want to burn the powders and get it stuck)
6. Add Buckwheat and coconut. Leave oven door open (this is to make sure the coconut doesn’t burn)
7. You will smell an aroma of chocolate and coconut, this is when it’s done (about another 5 minutes)
8. Open oven door fully, pull tray out of doorway, leave tray on rack and leave to cool.
9. Once cool, grab a pestle or a measuring cup and squash all the nuts until crushed to your liking.
10. Put in jar
Serve with Coconut milk or nut milk, berries and banana.
Enjoy in moderation. For us a small portion is substantial as it’s packed with fats, protein and carbs.
It’s been more than two weeks since I’ve shared a recipe, opinion, tidbit, or pointless part of my daily life. I’ve actually spent the last two weeks focusing on work. Photoshoots with amazing people like Lola Berry, product shoots with some amazing wellness businesses and collaborating with beautiful souls in the magazine industry. It’s really shifted me on a private path to prosperity where I never thought I’d end up. It’s been hectically refreshing and I am really excited and scared for my future but am a huge believer in serendipity and am ok with learning curves, failures, tests.
So I have been busy in the kitchen, in the fermenting HQ and with the camera and cannot wait to share with you some great food and projects next week. My two passions are merging more and more and it is truly exciting. Hang in there with me as we restore and revitalise RealFood Mum.
Meanwhile let’s throw back to a great breaky recipe for a Saturday morning. The mornings are warming, the sun is shining and it’s a great time for a smoothie bowl of nourishment. I know I’m having one in the morning
Here’s a quick and easy meat for tacos well anything really, but was amazing in some grain free tortilla’s with avocado, cucumber, coriander and kraut!! Pleases the family and especially the ‘cave man’
PREPARATION TIME COOKING TIME
10 MINUTES 20 MINUTES
Coconut Oil for cooking
600 grams Grass Fed Steak (I used Rump)
2 Tomatoes (diced)
2 Red Chillies (diced with seeds)
1 Zucchini (diced)
Season meat both sides and heat grill with a little coconut oil
Cook meat 3 minutes each side and take off to rest
In a pan add a little coconut oil taco seasoning and vegetables, cook to soften
Add broth and simmer for a few minutes
Slice steak into thin strips and add to sauce
Simmer for another few minutes depending on how you like your steak. We split three ways- my daughter and I like rare so we took a portion out and let the rest simmer and absorb the sauce and cook a little longer
Serve with Tacos, Salad, Vegetables or any side dish you love.
