Poached Egg Hash

poached egg hashSome days I wake up and really crave something different for breakfast and that’s where this poached egg hash recipe came from! I was craving breakfasty eggs and bacon but also really wanting sweet potato carb yumminess! Poached egg hash is a great meal to start the day with because it has your proteins, fats and carbs all rolled in to one dish. It’s not a quick dish as it takes about 20 minutes for the spuds to cook, but oh boy is it worth it!

So here’s how to make your delicious treat breakfast of poached egg hash with bacon and coriander! Cube your spuds and fry with the bacon in coconut oil for 20 mins. Meanwhile poach your eggy, scatter with coriander when your done and BOOM! you’ve got yourself a treat! Poached Egg Hash for every meal please!!!

Oatty Yoghurt Breakfast Pots

Oat breakfast pots meal prepI’ve recently started building nutrition plans for people and one of the most common things I hear from my clients is that they find breakfast is the hardest meal of the day and I definitely agree. The morning’s are always a rush no matter what your job and routine is. So the key to eating a healthy breakfast is prep prep and more prep! That is the only way to stop myself from having a breakfast that is bad for me. Quite often there are recipes that need an oven or a hob to cook on and quite a lot of people eat their breakfast when they get to work and not surprisingly your work doesn’t offer a fully operational kitchen complete with a cooker! I was watching a few colleagues who would pop to a nearby Soho Coffee and would buy a tiny yoghurt pot for a couple of pounds and whilst it looked amazing all I could think was I don’t know what’s in it and how expensive it was, and that led me to decide that I could make it for less money and I could make it 10 times more delicious!!! So I’ve bought myself 5 small kilner jars so I can make my own breakfast pots!


  1. Oats
  2. Greek Yoghurt
  3. Honey
  4. Cinnamon
  5. Cacao nibs
  6. Linwoods flaxseed, pumpkin seed, goji berries


  • Pour a layer of oats in to the base of the kilner jar
  • Spoon on a layer of greek yoghurt
  • Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top of the yoghurt
  • Drizzle a small amount of honey on top of the cinnamon
  • Repeat all of the above.
  • Add a pinch of cacao nibs
  • And finish with 1/4 tsp of flaxseed mix on top

How to Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Coconut Paleo Cereal mix

2.5 stone ago, I used to take a loaf of bread to work each week and every morning for morning I would eat 2 slices of big fat white toast. And this was THE hardest habit to break. I knew I had to put a stop to this but I genuinely had no idea what I could eat for breakfast that was healthy and easy to have on the go.

I would research and look at all of these suggestions for breakfasts to have and they were all boiled egg with asparagus soldiers, or scrambled egg with bacon or some other variation that required me to eat breakfast at home. This just didn’t work for me. I already got up early enough and I don’t have an oven or hob at work that would enable me to eat these delicious suggestions or a boss who would allow me to not work and spend 15 minutes cooking a full breakfast instead of working! Sure I would have these on the weekend and would enjoy them but I needed something that I could make in advance and was quick and I could eat at my desk and wasn’t going to go off quickly, I needed to extend my meal prep to breakfast too.

After my first attempt of making quinoa and egg muffins (which I love straight out of the oven when they are nice and hot!) but reheated I genuinely thought I was going to be sick! It just wasn’t going to work for me. So I’ve had to come up with my own solutions such as;

All of these added some variety to my working weekday breakfasts and I found I could prep them on a weekend and box up to take to work during the week! Hopefully if you’ve been having a similar struggle this will help you out and save you some hassle and stress and might stop some of those excuses you may have been coming up with so you could still eat your toast every morning!!! 😛 Hope you enjoy all of these yummy breakfast treats!

Paleo Coconut Cereal Mix

Coconut Paleo Cereal mixIt’s really important for me to make breakfasts that I can box up and take into the office with me as I don’t have time to eat it before I leave the house in the morning. This one smelt so amazing when I was making it that it barely made it to the boxing up phase! I could have easily eaten the whole lot!

Peanut Butter Cups

I’ve definitely got a sweet tooth and every now and again I just need to have something scrummy to eat that feels a little bit naughty. So here’s a recipe that I’ve found helps and doesn’t take that long to make! Sweeeeeeeet!


  • 1 cup smooth 100% peanut butter (i.e. no palm oil)
  • 1/2 – 1/ 3 cup of dessicated coconut
  • 1tbsp pure / raw honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate (anything 70% cocoa or above)
  • a handful of pistachios


  • Put the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and coconut in a blender and mix until completely smooth
  • Beat the pistachios until they are small crumbs
  • Melt the chocolate and then add the pistachios and mix
  • Pour the peanut butter mixture into cupcake cases.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture on to the top of each base.
  • Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes for them to set.

You can store these in the freezer and take out a couple of minutes before you want to eat it. YUM!

If you’re not a fan of peanut butter you can substitute with almond butter 🙂

Meal Plan 3rd March 2014



RECIPES: Flapjacks / Chilli and Quinoa / Piri Piri Chicken / Pancakes / Garam Masala / Fajitas / Burger / Stuffed Sweet Potato / Pizza / Squash Patties / Sweet Potato Cottage Pie

So here’s my meal plan for this week. The reason why I am showing you exactly what I intend to eat is because it’s realistic. All of the meal plans I look at for celebrities or on diet websites are really exciting and each meal on every day is something different. Well I’m a real girl with a real life and quite frankly as much as I enjoy cooking I don’t want to spend my entire life in the kitchen preparing a million different meals, and who has a fully operational kitchen in their workplace where you can make fancy soup on an oven hob, or bake something?! I certainly don’t!

So what I make for tea one evening is made in a batch so that I can either eat it cold or heated up in the microwave at work for the next day’s lunch. It’s not that exciting to eat the same thing twice or three times in one week, but it’s realistic and as a girl on a budget it’s definitely a lot friendlier on the old purse strings too!

Click on the links above to go directly to the recipes for each of the meals listed in my plan.

By the way – I don’t normally eat pancake for tea but it was pancake day and I think I deserve a little treat!!
