Welcome to Day 10 of Lucy’s Clean Eating Guide

The last day! There’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment and hopefully you’ve found yourself getting back on the right track after the holiday period. You may even want to continue on with our plan, which in that case we have our 10 Day Guide to Feeling Good from last year you could try out.

Breakfast – Parsnip, Carrot and Thyme Rosti

Parsnip, Carrot and Thyme Rosti

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 parsnips, chopped
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • A handful of fresh thyme
  • 1 egg for the mixture plus 4 eggs to serve (poached)
  • 2 tbsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
  • A pinch of Lucy Bee Himalayan Salt and ground black pepper

Method

  • Add the carrot and parsnip to a saucepan with hot water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes until vegetables are soft.
  • In a separate pan, sauté the onion with 1 teaspoon of Lucy Bee Coconut Oil until golden.
  • Drain the carrot and parsnip then mash together using a potato masher.
  • Add the onion, thyme and crack the egg into the mix, stir together then divide into four and make rosti/pattie shapes. Melt the remaining Lucy Bee Coconut Oil in a frying pan and spoon in your patties. I find using a big spoon helps to form neat round ‘burger’ shapes. Fry each rosti for 2/3 minutes each side on a medium heat but be careful not to burn.
  • Enjoy with a poached egg on a bed of spinach for a nutritious lunch!
