Lovely Brunch
Recipes

The weekend is coming! Woohoo!

During the weekend you just want to enjoy your lazy morning with a nice brunch to share with your family or your friends. But you don’t know what to make?  At Chi we have some tasty recipes to illuminate your morning.

For these brunch recipes we focused on egg omelette because there are so many benefits to eating eggs in the morning.  A lot of studies showed that eating eggs help you to maintain a calorie deficit and lose weight. Not to mention they are really easy to make!

Sweet – Orange Coconut Omelette

Ingredients – Serves 1

3 large eggs

¼ cup Chi coconut milk

½ tsp orange zest

Pinch salt and black pepper

1 tbsp Chi coconut oil

Method

  • Add Chi coconut oil to a non-stick pan and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add eggs, orange zest, salt, pepper and coconut milk to a small mixing bowl and give this a good whisk, until slightly frothy.
  • Pour that mixture into the preheated pan and swirl it around to spread your omelette evenly over the entire surface of the pan.
  • Let the omelette settle for a few seconds then run a heat resistant rubber spatula around the edge to sort of break it down a little bit, then start swirling again.
  • You want some of the uncooked eggs from the top to get under the omelette. Don’t be afraid to break it up a little bit.
  • Repeat that process 2 or 3 times until the top really starts to set. Remove from heat and let your omelette sit for a few minutes until the top is completely (or almost completely) set. You can cover it if you want to speed things up a bit…

Delicately slide your omelette onto serving plate, (fold it in half while doing so if desired) and garnish with fresh (or dry, or toasted) unsweetened coconut shavings.

What inspires
us…

Here are a few things that will make us happy this weekend.

Have the most wonderful weekend and make sure you enjoy a Chi.

Five tips on how to have
a happy and healthy weekend
  1. Start your day with 15 minutes of meditation

Meditation is the best way to start the day. It has great calming effects, plus helps you to recharge so you have more energy throughout the day.

  1. Make a green smoothie

Green smoothies are a quick and easy way to get large amounts of fruits and leafy greens into your daily diet. And they are so simple to make! You just need to add a liquid-base (Chi Coconut Water is a great option!), leafy greens and fruit. You can also add some super food toppings like chia seeds or goji berries.

  1. Make a coconut oil face mask

If you want soft, smooth and hydrated skin, this mask is the solution. You just need to mix 1tbsp Chi Coconut Oil, 1tbsp honey and a squeeze of lemon. Apply the mixture onto a clean face and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

  1. Make some healthy lollipops to enjoy with friends

We all love to enjoy a sweet treat during the weekend, but if you are craving sweetness but not the calories, fruity lollipops are the solution for a healthy summer weekend. You just have to mix Chi Coconut Water with your favorite fruits, freeze and enjoy!

  1. Explore your city and spend some time outdoors

Summer is here and the sun is shining! So, make sure you spend some time outdoors. How about going for a run, visit a farmers market or going for a picnic with friends?

Have the most wonderful weekend everyone!
