Recently I decided to revolutionise my diet and cut out a lot of the rich foods I’ve been eating. I’m still going to have treats and nice things, but more occasionally so that I enjoy them more.
Fried Egg with Avocado, Cherry Tomatoes, Ham and Beans
This recipe is pretty straightforward and nice and easy for when you wake up with a growling stomach: fry up the egg in coconut oil or butter, roughly chop the cherry tomatoes in half and chuck them in the pan then fry until the egg is cooked and the tomatoes start to sizzle. Then add the rest of the ingredients to your plate and breakfast is ready mmm.
What you need:
- 1 egg
- 5 cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/4 cup kidney beans
- 3 tablespoons pre-cooked & diced bacon
Honey & Ginger Tea
Green Bean & Bacon Fry
What you need:
- 1/2 cup chopped green beans
- 1 egg
- diced ham
Place the walnuts in a fry pan on a high heat and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Place a cover over them for 3 minutes, then add in the rest of the ingredients and fry up.
Eat with: Green Jasmine Tea & 1 mandarin
1 Nutmeg & Cinnamon Sugarless Cookie
I devised this recipe myself, and these ‘cookies’ are great for a filling snack that leaves you guilt-free. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth I suggest adding a few more sultanas. It also makes for some fun afternoon baking, if you have the time!
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 cups self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sultanas
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp beetroot juice
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Wash your hands and use your fingers to roll the dough into balls about 5cm x 5cm. Press the dough balls onto a pan which has been lined with baking paper. Once finished pop them into the oven at 200˚C (392˚F) for 15 minutes.
Sweet Potato and Chickpea Lamb Curry
This was such a filling dinner, which I served with quinoa and a light salad. So yum, and the curry isn’t spicy at all. The recipe is quite long, so I’ll post it in detail another time. If you’d like me to do that – let me know!!
Eating like this has made me feel so much happier and healthier. If you’re looking to change up your diet, give these recipes a go 🙂
