Metabolism Boosting

This menu puts together foods and cooking methods capable of boosting the metabolism from breakfast to dinner. This day will leave you feeling clean from the inside out. 

Before Breakfast: one cup of warm water with fresh lemon juice from ½ or 1 lemon


Coffee or chocolate quinoa oatmeal


Follow the recipe for the Signature Quinoa Oatmeal. Add 1 espresso shot or 1 tsp of cocoa powder to the base towards the end of cooking.


  • 2 tsp flax seeds (mix it well with the base, don’t leave just on top)
  • 1 tsp cacao nibs or 1 square of 100% dark chocolate
  • 2 Brazil nuts, shredded



Metabolism Boosting Egg Salad


  • 2 boiled eggs – I recommend not to overcook and leave the yolk runny to preserve all the nutrients. It should take approximately 6-7 min of cooking
  • Green salad of your choice
  • 80g chickpea (cooked weight) – stir-fry in evo oil and cumin powder. If using canned chickpeas, rinse well under cold water before cooking

What to drink: a cup of chicory coffee or herbal tea (coffee and dark chocolate in the oatmeal both provide caffeine, so I suggest avoiding drinking extra caffeine and rather opt for a caffeine-free beverage). However, if you’re not using coffee in the oatmeal, you can definitely go for a cup of green tea or coffee.

Dressing: Arugula pesto

  • ½ cup arugula
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp walnuts or pine nuts
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tbsp nutritional yeast

Blend all the ingredients until smooth


‘Aglio, Olio & Peperoncino’


  • 70-90g buckwheat (in the form of grain or pasta) – Boil and then stir-fry in evo oil, garlic and chili flakes

Side: grilled asparagus or grilled endives with fresh lemon juice and olive oil
