The easiest, perfectly balanced alkaline breakfast recipe
Starting the day with a quality breakfast is not only important – it’s critical. Study after study has proven that a consistent breakfast:
- Increases cognition
- Mental performance and behaviour
- Helps balance hormones
- Increase metabolism
- Mobilise unwanted visceral fat
- Build muscle
- Improves digestion…
- And so much more!
And this is my most simple alkaline breakfast. It’s nutrient dense, alkaline, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich and importantly – quick and easy to make!
I’m wondering why I didn’t share this one earlier! I must have thought I already had!
As you can see there are now 197 free alkaline recipes on this site, so I can be forgiven for forgetting one or two (not to mention the almost 200 recipes and meal plans in my Alkaline Recipe System).

Why This Is My Perfect, Simple Alkaline Breakfast
A brilliantly balanced breakfast will give you:

And this simple breakfast recipe gives you all of that!
You get abundant quantities of healthy fats from the avocado and flax oil, a solid 25g protein from the quinoa, greens, nuts and seeds, 2-3 serves of green foods, a huge range of antioxidants from the greens, broccoli and tomato and of course it’s warming, filling, delicious and FAST!
This truly sets you up for an energized, engaged, focused, positive, alkaline day!
The Ultimate Simple Alkaline Breakfast
50g uncooked quinoa
1 big handful of spinach leaves
1 big handful of kale leaves (removed from stem)
12 cherry tomatoes or 2 large tomatoes
1 handful of broccoli florets
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Optional: mixed nuts and seeds
Start by getting the quinoa cooking. To do this, simply rinse it in a sieve under cold water and then add to a saucepan in the ratio of 1:1.5 (so approx half a cup of quinoa and 3/4 cup of water – BUT – I’d recommend cooking 1 cup of quinoa (and thus 1.5 cups of water) so you have some left over for later to put in a salad etc.).
Bring this to a boil and then turn down to the lowest simmer and cover. Leave this for 8-10 minutes but keep checking back. You know it is done when the quinoa gets their little curly tail and the water is gone.
Once it’s done, let it rest for another few minutes.
While the quinoa is cooking get the broccoli onto a super light steam just for 4-5 minutes so it’s still crunchy, but is giving the meal a little extra warmth.
Now slice up the avocado into cubes, thinly slice the spinach and kale, halve the cherry tomatoes, slice the capsicum and if you’re using nuts (such as almonds, cashews etc.) bash these with the flat side of a knife, or slice up roughly.
Once the quinoa and broccoli are done, simply put everything in a large bowl and drizzle with olive/flax oil and the lemon juice. Season and enjoy!
