Last night while on my way home, I was racking my brains for breakfast ideas to keep me full until lunch (you’d think I would have this sussed by now). I thought I would do scrambled eggs with peppers and stuff but when I got home we only had one egg left as one other had cracked and I didn’t want to risk it.
2 slices bacon chopped with fat off
1 courgette diced
3 big white mushrooms roughly chopped
1 medium tomato roughly chopped
half a red pepper diced
salt and pepper
paprika to taste
garlic to taste
1 tsp dried parsley
Frylight sunflower oil
On a medium heat with Frylight, add the mushrooms,tomato and pepper; fry until they soften slightly.Add the bacon and courgette (courgette doesn’t take long to cook) and fry until the bacon is cooked through. Add all seasoning and then add the egg (you can mix it before you put it in but I just cracked the egg into the pan). Stir to make sure the egg coats the veg and fry until cooked, still stirring throughout.
That’s it! Sometimes, it doesn’t take a complex recipe to make something tasty and let me tell you this was super nommy and filling for my breakfast. It may not look pretty but was lovely. The only thing I would change is to use 2 eggs so you get more of the breakfasty taste but it really was nice! Next time you’re racking your brains for what to make, check your fridge and as long as you have eggs and a few random bits, you can always make your own version of a breakfast bowl!
This is literally the easiest recipe I have ever done; so much so that I wouldn’t even call it a recipe as there were so few ingredients and not many processes to go through.
I decided to try Banana pancakes after seeing a few other slimmers making them and raving about how good they were.
So here is the shortest recipe ever.
You will need:
1 ripe banana mashed
2 eggs beaten
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
Frylight-any really but I used the olive oil one
(I added half a teaspoon of peanut butter and a pinch of sweetener)
With the beaten eggs in a jug, add the mashed banana (or narner as I call it) and whisk until combined. Then add the cinnamon, salt and peanut butter and sweetener if you’re using them. Whisk together.
Preheat some Fry Light in a pan on a low-medium heat. Slowly pour in the mixture (be careful not to put too much in as it expands in the pan) and after about 1 minute flip over to cook the other side.
Transfer to a plate. I did two at a time to make sure they didn’t run into each other and then stacked them.
Then that’s it!You’re done! If you’re like me, however, you like extra bits.
So I added a LIGHT drizzling of honey over the pancakes, sprinkled some raisins and put some grapes on the side. Then in a bowl I mixed some natural yoghurt with a bit of sweetener to taste and then poured this on the side of my pancakes.
I have to say this is one of the most satisfying breakfasts I’ve had because it’s just eggs and bananas, no flour, no baking powder or anything like that.
Give it a go and let me know what extras you add in the comments!
Good Morning all. Just a short post for you this fine morning. I’ve been getting fed up of cereal so this morning decided to go a different route. Ryvita Crispbreads with Asda garlic and herbs cheese spread, tomato, beetroot and cucumber! What a mouthful!
I call them my little rectangles of good morning happiness. These are so satisfying and the crispbreads are only 19 calories each, basically thin air! So all in all, a successful and satisfying breakfast.
If you’re getting fed up of the same breakfast, I definitely recommend you try something new, just to get your taste buds tingling again. Yes, eat healthily but there’s no need to eat boring is there?
