Life would be quite dull without a fry-up now and then. Here we’ve healthied-things-up a bit with the addition of spinach, cos you should always eat your greens :D But don’t panic cos it tastes SO NICE! Buy good quality bacon or sausages (not shown cos I was doing a veggie one!) without artificial additives. It’s worth tracking them down. Free range organic eggs with nice golden yolks and a slice of real bread. Classic.
Serves: 1 • Prep: 5 mins • Cook: 10 mins • Easy 
  • knob of butter
  • 2 large handfuls of washed spinach (remember it cooks down to a fraction of the volume)
  • ¼ of a red onion, finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • 3 rashers of quality bacon, or two good quality, or vegetarian, sausages
  • 1 ripe tomato, halved, or a handful of halved baby tomatoes
  • 3 medium portobello mushrooms or five chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 free range organic eggs
  • 1 slice of sourdough bread, buttered
Heat the olive oil on a medium heat and gently fry the bacon or sausages, without burning (you can use lard for this).

In another pan heat a knob of butter and fry the mushrooms, add the halved tomato or baby tomatoes and fry til slightly soft and sweet.

Gently fry two eggs, or poach if you prefer.

Sautée the chopped onion in butter, til soft and translucent, then add the spinach and some salt, cook til lightly wilted.

Serve with sourdough bread and real butter.

For a real hungry horse add our chilli chorizo beans but leave out the bacon and sausage. I like this with a nice glass of cold whole milk. Try it!
Nutrition info
Mushrooms provide lots or Riboflavin (vitamin B2). Not only is this important for energy production but it also helps to bring iron out of storage and into cells. Mushrooms grown in sunlight contain good amounts of vitamin D, vit D is pretty elusive in the diet so it's important to increase intake, we get most of it from sunlight ourselves but are so indoorsy these days! Vitamin D is critical for bone health and also boost immunity.
Eggs are little packages of nutrition. They provide vitamin A, vitamin D, all the B vitamins, folic acid, and are a rich source of selenium (for thyroid function) and iodine as well as many other minerals. They are an excellent source of choline which helps our cells and nerves to signal, as well as with healthy construction of the cell walls.

Make every day this delicious, get a weekly eatnaturally plan!

I went to a restaurant that serves breakfast at any time. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.
