A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.

Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.

Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!

    Method

    Begin with an avocado as your base. By doing this, you're already getting lots of fats, which is a great thing. You can build on this, mix and match to change things each day.

    Avocado Base

    • Slice or chop an avocado into a bowl, lunchbox or a jam jar. Add a squeeze of lemon, lime or apple cider vinegar (which will prevent it from browning), drizzle of oil, salt and pepper. If using a lunchbox, clamp the lid on and shake, or just mix in a bowl. From here, you can build it up with delicious things!

    Add Protein

    • Boiled egg (boil enough for the week or a few days so they're ready to pop into your bowl or lunch box)
    • Omelette can be cooked, chopped and added
    • Smoked salmon
    • Bacon (cooked, chopped and stored in the fridge ready to add)
    • Ham
    • Halloumi (can cook this ahead and have it cold)
    • Cheese (avocado, mozzarella, basil- delicious, and yes you can have for breakfast!)
    • Prawns
    • Smoked Mackerel Pate
    • Leftover chicken

    Added Extras

    • Salad (best placed on top, at the very end so it doesn't wilt too much)
    • Wilted green or leftover veg form other meals
    • Soft Herbs like coriander, basil or parsley
    • Nuts and seeds
    • tahini (tahini and chilli oil go really well!)
    • chilli oil
    • mayonnaise
    • drizzle of apple cider vinegar
    • or any on this list here
