Superfood Brunch

I don't know about you, but I love a good brunch.
It's not breakfast, because I'm not a huge breakfast fan, but when you combine it with lunch it just becomes a magical experience. That's not to say I don't like breakfast food, it's honestly just the time of the day. I'm the furthest thing from a morning person, therefore, any "breakfast" I consume is technically brunch anyway due to the time of day I eat it. Because who doesn't love a huge stack of pancakes in the morning?

So, this morning I had to wake up super early for a business call. After faffing around after the phone call, taking a shower, and just getting my life together, I figured I should eat something.


Cue my walk to the fridge - otherwise known as my favourite place in the world - where I found some tomatoes, eggs, spinach, feta, strawberries, and garlic. There was also a beautiful avocado glowing in my fruit bowl outside of the fridge. I'm not kidding, I think avocados may be angels. I could hear it calling my name, so I had to use it. Avocados are huge over here in America,  especially in California, they freaking love them! In England they've never been a massive thing, unless you're making guacamole or something, but they definitely should be.

To start with put a pan on medium heat and start chopping up your tomatoes and garlic.
Once your pan has reached a sufficient heat add a little bit of olive oil to it and evenly distribute it around the pan. Throw in your tomatoes and garlic and allow them to heat up slightly and then add your egg on top.

Now, I recently saw Jamie Oliver making legitimately the perfect fried egg. Instead of just leaving the egg on the pan uncovered, place a lid on top of it and leave it there for about two minutes, it will then come off the pan with a slight white covering over the yolk. I will do a separate post to show exactly how it's done in the next few days, but it's pretty easy to get the hang of.

Whilst all of this is going on, add some olive oil to your spinach and use your hands to make sure its goes through the whole salad. Add a little salt and some chili flakes as well. Then, top your spinach with the egg, tomatoes and garlic. Add your sliced strawberries and avocado. Don't forget to sprinkle on some feta, and voila! Brunch served! Not only are you now set for the day, but you also just had a ridiculously healthy start, which if your mother is like mine will make her extra pleased.
