Monthly Favourites…FOOD EDITION!

Now if you follow me on Instagram it’s no secret that I LOVE food! Over the past month I’ve been experimenting with some quick and easy meals that are… somewhat healthy. I am currently in the middle of  figuring out what my body needs, maro-nutrients wise, and these meals seem to be the best ones for energy, and over-all health so far…

Meal 1 is the old classic, Burger and Chips! For this I used a Linda McCartney veggie burger (as always!), a slice of red onion, both cooked in coconut oil and some light cheddar cheese grated on top. By having the burger on a bed of spinach rather than bread I was reducing the carbs and fat, which I then replaced with extra home cooked chips! To make the chips simple cut up a potato, here I have chosen chunkier wedge style chips, and put them on a tray in the oven with a splash of oil and some chilli flakes. Take them out of the oven when they begin to go brown and crispen up and enjoy!

Meal 2 is actually a favourite breakfast of mine at the moment which again features…a veggie burger! For this I scrambled some 2 whole free range eggs, and just as the start to go slightly brown I added a table spoon of cottage cheese. I know what you’re thinking…cottage cheese…really? Personally, I hate the stuff but as a vegetarian I am constantly looking at new ways of getting in my protein levels and cottage cheese is so full of protein that I figured…why not! Anyway, mixed in with the eggs and a dash of Jamaican Jerk spice, you can hardly taste it, it just makes for extra creamy eggs. I then added my greens, string beans, which were steamed until they went nice and soft. Yummy!

Finally, the ultimate…protein oats. I don’t always have this much chocolate on my oats but I  was feeling adventurous. For my day-to-day oats, add 70grams of oats to your bowl, add enough boiling water to cover them all up and leave for about 2 minutes for them to go all fluffy. Then, add 1 tablespoon of your favourite peanut butter and…1 or 2 Reece’s peanut butter cups…and enjoy! This isn’t the healthiest of recipes but if you are just trying to maintain general health then having a small amount of chocolate doesn’t hurt and if you’re going to eat chocolate then make it Reece’s because that stuff has bare amount of peanut butter protein in it…
