Sweet potato toast with avocado and poached egg

I was late to the party with sweet potato toast! I convinced myself that it wouldn’t really cook and that it was a bit of a faff. But I’m converted :) It’s dead easy to do, taste great and is a fab alternative to bread. The flavour is quite sweet though so we tend to mix lemon juice and fresh coriander through the avocado (like a simplified guacamole) and a grind of black pepper. Super yummy and will keep you full right through until lunch. midlifemenu.com/recipes/sweet-potato-toast

Garlicky herby quinoa

Quinoa is a great alternative to heavier carbs like pasta and rice, plus it’s full of protein which helps fill you up and keep your energy levels balanced. But it’s bland on it’s own without any ‘pepping’ up - in fact one of my friends has decided she doesn’t like it because it’s so tasteless…but I’m on a mission to prove her wrong with this recipe! Feel free to add your own variations so long as it’s got plenty of flavour. midlifemenu.com/recipes/quinoa
