The joy of going on yurt holidays is that you have the added luxury of having kitchen equipment as well as refrigeration meaning there’s no excuse not to rustle up some delicious dishes and nibbles.
It’s been said time and time again, breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it sets you up with energy to tackle the day ahead, and when out in the great outdoors in your yurt it’s even more important that you fuel up correctly!
Due to the rustic settings of our yurts you’ll have access to the freshest of vegetables, fruit and produce from the local shops nearby, meaning there’s no excuse for skipping the best meal of the day.
Whether you’re relaxing outside of the yurt reading your favourite book or rambling over the landscape, eating the most nutritious and balanced breakfast will put you in great shape to tackle the day ahead. With that in mind, read below to see three delicious breakfast recipes that are simple to whip up on your yurt holidays.
Grab some eggs from a nearby farm and whip up an omelette bursting with fresh vegetables. Start off by frying peppers, kale, spinach, garlic, tomatoes and any other vegetables you have lying around the yurt or have picked up locally. Once things are starting to soften, add 5-6 farm fresh eggs. This will provide a big hit of protein and healthy omega fats as well as selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper, as well as all the benefits from the vegetables.
Chia Breakfast Pudding
This one always hits the spot and couldn’t be easier to prepare as you do it the night before. Chia seeds are extremely high in fibre, omega-3 and 6 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals such as copper, magnesium, potassium and zinc to name just a few of the good stuff found in them. Our yurts either have a small fridge or cool box ideal for this breakfast. Use an old jar or plastic container and fill ¼ full of chia seeds, next pour in a nut milk until it covers the chia seeds by 2cm. Seal the jar or container and shake until it’s well mixed and place in the fridge or cool box overnight.
In the morning you will have a delicious creamy chia pudding, to top with fresh fruit of your choosing, nuts and honey.
Avocado on Toast
Avocados are well known as a superfood that is high in healthy fats, dietary fibre and potassium. Use some fresh bread from a local bakery, toast lightly and butter generously before smashing the avocado over the toast, seasoning with salt, pepper and chilli. For an extra kick add a fresh local fried egg!
