Eggs in Blankets

Eggs in BlanketsEggs are such a great and healthy way to start the day. Before I decided to change my diet, bread was a big part of my breakfast and I couldn’t get my head around what you would have with your eggs or with your bacon, because everything should be sandwiched or on toast! Don’t get me wrong I still eat bread from time to time and I’ll have a nice sourdough loaf in the freezer for those occasions but I’ll let you in on a secret you can make a tasty breakfast without toast!!!

So here’s the simple recipe for eggs in blankets. It’s a quick an easy way to cook your eggs and up your protein intake. And you can try this with turkey rashers as well as bacon..

Ingredients:

  • 6 rashers of bacon
  • 3 large eggs
  • a pinch of chilli flakes
  • a pinch of pepper
  • chopped coriander for garnish
  1. First of all pre-heat the oven to 160C (fan-assisted).
  2. Then grease a muffin tin with some coconut oil or ghee. Line each part of the muffin tin with one rasher of bacon.
  3. Now you have 2 options here and it depends on how you like your bacon; I like mine well done so I put the bacon lined muffin tin in the oven for 5 minutes before adding the egg mixture. If you like your bacon just cooked skip straight to step 4
  4. Beat 3 eggs (1 egg will make 2 portions) and add in some pepper and chilli flakes for flavour
  5. Pour the egg mixture into your bacon parcels
  6. Pop in the oven and bake your eggs in blankets for 15 minutes
  7. Remove the egg and bacon nest from the muffin tin and scatter with coriander to taste.

And there you have it, an easy recipe to make eggs for breakfast without any bread and plenty of flavour! 🙂

Enjoy!

Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma

I LOVE curry! But I hate things that are so spicy hot that you can’t taste the flavours, so this recipe is a perfect combination of creamy, spicy and will have you craving more! It’s great for a night with your friends and having a few drinks but is also mild enough that it’s kid friendly.

Ingredients:

• 3 tbsp greek yoghurt
• 1 red onion
• 4 cloves garlic
• Thumb sized piece of ginger, diced
• 3 tbsp korma curry paste
• 2 tsp coconut sugar
• 400 ml cold water

Method:

  1. Cook the onions, garlic and ginger in a pan.
  2. Stir in the curry paste and sugar and cook for 1 minute stirring continuously.
  3. Pour in the water and bring to a boil, then allow to simmer.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the chicken and yoghurt, then add that to the pan.
  5. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

Egg White Crisps

Egg white crisps sounds a little bit odd right?! But they are actually delicious and a super healthy snack which is a great alternative to “normal” store bought crisps.

What’s even better is that they are really easy to make:

Ingredients

  • Liquid Egg Whites 250g
  • Water
  • Seasoning / spices

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Whisk up some egg whites, and add some water to thin them a little bit, then add in whatever flavouring you want, salt & vinegar, paprika, chilli etc.
  3. Use a muffin tin and pour the egg white mixture into the tin just to
    cover the bottom, pop in the oven and cook until they become
    crisp.

Elle True Diet Trial

elle true diet

My Protein have very kindly sent me a sample of their Elle True Diet Protein powder for me to trial and review. I am super psyched about giving this a go and can’t wait to give you guys my feedback. After being away on holiday for a couple of weeks and being a teeny bit naughty with my diet and doing next to no exercise at all, it’s time to kick start my healthy lifestyle again. And what better way to start than by adding some protein powder in to my paleo (ish) healthy eating regime. I will be updating you guys on the way, and will include stats and measurements to confirm if this truly does work as a diet and weight loss aid. At the moment I am going to start by having this as a a shake with milk as a substitute for breakfast, but I will also have a play about and see if it can be added to some cheeky little desserts along the way. I also want to add that as always I am not solely relying on the protein powder as a miracle weight loss tool, I will continue to eat a healthy well balanced diet as well as doing my daily exercise/">HIIT workouts. Wish me luck and keep an eye out for my updates!

Starting Stats are:

  • Weight: 8st 5.6
  • Waist: 25.5 inches
  • Hips: 36 inches
  • Thighs: 21 inches
  • Bust: 30 inches
  • Caliper body fat: 22.7%

Chia seed and banana loaf

chia seed and banana loaf

 

My sister and I baked this and by that I mean my sister helped me to bake this!! I really wanted to try the recipe and share it but I really don’t like bananas so needed someone who would do the taste test for me!

This recipe was really easy to make and I am really proud of this one! Even though I dislike banana I was really tempted to give this a try as it smelled delicious and cinnamon-y! And once again this recipe is paleo and gluten free, packed with protein and omega 3. Which makes it a guilt free treat 🙂

Choosing the right protein powder

I really wanted to write about protein powder as I think a lot of people still consider it to be a male market that this is for and it completely isn’t the case! So many girls who are training, lifting weights and doing high intensity interval training are using protein powder to help fix their weary muscles and help build strong lean muscles so they can perform at the top of their game!

Most people who are training want to have a protein powder to help them and their tired and hard chia seedsworked muscles out a bit because sometimes it’s really hard to cram that much protein into your diet! The reason why people take it is because protein assists in building lean muscle. And having muscles not only makes you look good but it also burns calories! I don’t have it every day but I do take protein shakes every now again, or I will mix the protein powder in with my baking or into a flapjack mix or in with my chia seed pots something to give myself that extra boost and protein injection!

Chia Seed Pudding Pot :)

I made these the other day and wanted to share them with you all! These are amazing for post workout nibbles because not only are they are packed with protein (check out all the info about the chia seed and find out what all of the fuss is about!), they are super delicious and you feel like you’re having a really naughty treat, but with each pot only having 120 calories you don’t need to fret about piling on the pounds! Now that’s my kind of pudding!! Oh and did I mention that it’s Paleo? This is checking all of my boxes fitfam folks!

So here’s how to make this delightful pot of happiness:

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used impact whey protein vanilla flavoured, but you could always add a bit of cinnamon or something else you like to your protein powder to add some flavour)
  • add a bit of chopped fruit or cacao to add some more flavour (but remember to add this on to the calorie intake if you’re counting!)
  • Whisk all of the ingredients together, you need to give it a bit of a beating because you want the chia seeds to not sink to the bottom and if you mix it well enough then the chia will soften and the mixture will turn into a more gel like substance
  • Pop your pots in the fridge (the longer the better), then once you’ve finished your workout crawl to the fridge and gobble up!

Paleo Steak and Salad at 131

I desperately want to shout out about the amazing lunch I had at 131 the promenade in Cheltenham! They had a great menu and so much choice and was thrilled to find something that was sumptuous and Paleo and didn’t make me feel like I was compromising taste and flavour just for the sake of sticking to my sometimes awkward diet! I had this delicious steak with a fresh salad topped with tomatoes, chilli and garlic. Would hugely recommend this place!
