Importance of Breakfast

The notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day rings true in the world of Metabolic Balance, and for a good reason.

It helps ensure balance and energy to keep you going through the day.

With our Metabolic Balance meal plan, we provide you with nutritious and varied breakfast options that will give you the right amount of proteins, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates and keep you satisfied.

It might sound weird to eat vegetables for breakfast, but it’s encouraged in Metabolic Balance, and after a while, it becomes part of your routine.

Vegetables are rich in vitamins, fiber and minerals. Also, they help with satiety and well-being.

Cinco de Mayo Enchiladas

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, we have a delicious enchilada recipe for you, packed with bold flavors! Enchiladas are a delicious traditional Mexican dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner/

The main ingredients are tortillas and salsa, and they are normally filled with protein (you can choose meat, chicken, eggs, cheese or even beans for a vegetarian or vegan version).

To start, let’s make the salsa:

Boil green tomatoes in a pot and once cooked, drain the water but reserve a little.

Add the cooked tomatoes to a blender along with the onion, garlic, green chilli peppers, and salt to taste. Return the blended tomatoes to the pot you used together with the water you saved. Bring to the boil again, and season with salt if needed.

To make the tortillas:

Mix 100% rye flour with the oil and enough water to make a sticky dough. Let it sit for an hour.

The dough should be divided into two or three portions and formed into balls, then flattened (if you have a tortilla machine, amazing) but if not, using your hands will work fine. The thinner, the better. Heat a pan to get it really hot but then lower the heat as you put the tortillas in. Turn them regularly until cooked. Make sure they are cooked well inside but still flexible enough to fold.

Serve the tortillas with your choice of protein and vegetables, folded, and topped with hot salsa.

Add some lettuce and onion on top. Enjoy!


Many people have probably heard of antioxidants but few are familiar with what they are and how they work.

Antioxidants are compounds prevalent in fruits and vegetables that inhibit oxidation because they can fight free radicals present in the body. These free radicals in the body are produced as a by-product of normal metabolic processes or from exposure to harmful factors such as ozone, X-rays, air pollutants, and chemicals. High levels of free radicals in the body have been associated with cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis. Thus antioxidants play an important role in the body by helping to regulate free radical levels.

Although the body can produce its own antioxidants it is also important to get them through your diet. Many fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of vital antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin A, beta-carotene, and epigallacatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Foods especially high in antioxidants include green tea, berries, dark leafy greens, and beans.

For more information and a list of foods high in antioxidants, check out the links below.

Pinto Bean Meatballs

Today we have a great recipe for pinto bean “meatballs”. These are packed full of protein and can be served with a salad or with pasta.

1 serving of pinto beans
1 serving of vegetables (parsnip, zucchini, cabbage turnip, red onion)
1 garlic clove
Curry powder
Vegetable broth
Rapeseed oil
1 slice of crispbread

Soak the beans overnight, drain, add fresh water and then cook for 1 hour. Wash the vegetables, clean and grate 1/3 finely and cut the rest into strips to eat as a side. Sauté the onion cubes with garlic, add the grated vegetables and cook until soft. Finally add the herbs and then take off the heat to cool. Blend the crispbread into flour in a food processor. Drain the beans and save some broth, then puree the beans with some broth into a smooth consistency. Add the steamed vegetables and puree everything together. Season as needed and then depending on the consistency, add the crispbread flour until the mixture sticks together. Form small balls and then bake until crisp on the outside. Enjoy!

Beans: Vegetable or Protein?

In the case of beans, Metabolic Balance distinguishes between those which belong to the vegetable group and those which belong to the protein group:

Beans, which are considered a source of protein, are legumes (white beans, pinto beans, cannellini beans red kidney beans, lima beans, adzuki beans, black-eyed beans, etc. ). Beans that are classified as vegetables are green beans (string/green beans, French beans or Chinese long beans). There are also new varieties, such as yellow beans, which may also be used. The amount in the nutrition plan always refers to dry AKA uncooked weight. If using already cooked or pre-soaked protein beans, the indicated amount should be simply doubled.

Rhubarb and Oat Crumble

Rhubarb is a delicious in desserts and perfect in sweet dishes such as this delicious crumble. Give it a try and let us know what you think!  

Ingredients (1 serving):
160 g (1 cup) of rhubarb
30 g rolled oats
15 g butter
20 g chopped walnuts
Lemon zest
Lemon juice
Pinch of salt 

Cut the rhubarb into small cubes or slices, mix with lemon juice and place into a small greased casserole dish. Combine the nuts and oats and then add together with the butter, salt, vanilla, and lemon zest. Gently work the mixture with your hands to form crumbles. Spread the mixture over the rhubarb and bake at 300 °F (150 °C) for 20 to 30 minutes. Enjoy!

The crumble can be adapted to your own plan depending on the phase and food list. Instead of oats you can also use rye flakes and some chia seeds.


Although many of us think of rhubarb as a fruit and use the stems similar to other fruits such as in a jam, compote, chutney or in cake, rhubarb is considered a vegetable.

Rhubarb is incredibly healthy and fits perfectly with Metabolic Balance. It contains large amounts of vitamin K and C, potassium, and calcium. This vegetable is also packed full of malic acids, various glycosides, tannins, essential oils and pectin which can be soothing for the intestine. Rhubarb is perfect for “internal cleansing”. The contained anthraquinones strongly stimulate the digestive system and have a laxative effect.
