Start the day right with this vegie-packed brunch.
are you trying to reduce processed foods and refined grains? Switch the usual muffin base for a betacarotene-rich sweet potato rosti that helps count towards your daily vegetable tally. Including asparagus as a side adds another serving of vegies and a boost of green goodness. Asparagus is a particularly good choice for gut health: it has high levels of inulin, a special kind of prebiotic that encourages the growth of good bacteria in your gut. Plus, it’s also a source of protein. Ham usually plays the lead role in a traditional eggs benedict, but I’ve reduced pork to a supporting role by using a little pancetta or bacon, so you get all the deliciousness without going overboard on processed meat.
