Stir fried veggies (bell pepper, mangetout, baby corn and petit pois) cooked in coconut oil, soy sauce, honey, ginger and chilli, topped with two poached eggs and some paprika.
I’ve been a little lazy with dinners recently as by the time I get in from college it’s time for dinner! Baked beans and (microwaved) sweet potatoes have been my staple for this week, haha. So it was nice to have something that took a little more effort and tasted awesome. ^^
My family went on a picnic this evening so I made them this tuna, spinach and pepper quiche. :)
I tried to make it a little healthier than your atypical cheese/cream laden quiche, so packed it full with filling. The filling is made of 2 cans of tuna, 4 eggs, about 1/3 cup almond milk, some paprika, nutmeg, s&p, nutritional yeast and about 1/3 cup mild cheddar, as well as the veggies. Sprinkled on top is some parmesan. Oh, and I made the crust using a 2:1 ratio of white to wholewheat flour.
I think this was a fair compromise without sacrificing flavour and upsetting the not so health conscious members of my family, haha. Hopefully they enjoyed it!
(whilst I stayed home ironing and watching Doctor Who. yup.)
Breakfast - scrambled eggs with paprika and some strawberries.
I’m so glad strawberries are back in season! Gone are the days it’s £4 a punnet, hurrah!
Banana pancakes (2 small bananas, mashed, 2 eggs, 3 tbsps ground almonds, 1 tsp flaxseed, cinnamon and vanilla) with coconut, agave and crushed walnuts cooked in coconut oil.
I’ve been on a real pancake kick lately - I just haven’t been wanting oatmeal. Weird!
Lunch - 2x cage free scrambled eggs with paprika and nutritional yeast, rocket with balsamic and half an avocado with cracked black pepper.
Omelette (2 whole, 1 white) filled with spinach and tuna, cooked in coconut oil, with paprika and wild rocket with balsamic.
A couple of you lovely people have messaged me about the elimination diet/cutting out foods for acne and have all been very helpful! Hence why I’m eating eggs - y’all have said they’re okay. I’ve ordered a book about the “Whole 30” diet as quite a few of you swear by it to help acne. So thank you for all the help! :D
Dinner - Italian baked eggs. (served with sourdough and a romaine/spinach salad.)
I absolutely loved this dish! It’s made with crushed tomatoes, cannellini beans, aubergine, red onion, garlic, oregano, paprika, sundried tomato pesto, fresh basil and eggs. It’s essentially an Italian take on huevos rancheros and it’s, as you say down here, gurt lush. My Ma and brother thought so too! :)
I think I’ll post a recipe for this once I’ve made it a few more times!
Scrambled eggs with paprika, basil and black pepper, half a banana and a handful of raspberries.
(Eggs (yup, cage free, spare eggs from local chickens!) - 2 whole, 1 white, splash of almond milk and sweet chilli sauce, cooked in coconut oil.)
Oatmeal made with two egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla, almond milk and ground flaxseed topped with banana, crushed walnuts, maple almond butter and a drizzle of agave.
Pretty much the best thing ever.
Half a toasted bagel with sunflower butter, scrambled eggs, black pepper and red grapes.
(Eggs - 2 whole, 2 white, dash of almond milk, paprika and oregano.)
Multi-seed toasted ‘Food Doctor’ pitta with scrambled eggs, fresh spinach and a light sprinkling of mozzarella.
(Eggs - 2 whole, 1 white, dash of soy milk, cumin, basil, black pepper and garlic powder, all cooked in a little coconut oil.)
Scrambled eggs with mozzarella, petit pois and and a tangerine.
(Eggs - 2 whole, 1 white, a splash of soya milk, paprika, cumin, s&p, all cooked in a little coconut oil. Sprinkled shredded mozz on the top and placed under the frill to melt.)
‘5 Minute Baked Banana Oatmeal' with cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, soy yoghurt, peanut butter and a drizzle of agave syrup.
Breakfast - mozzarella and broccoli omelette with a clementine. (24g protein! Niiiice.)
This is the best omelette I’ve ever made! They always break when I try to flip them, or turn out horribly on the plate or all the fillings all out, but not this time! Perfecto. ;D
I heated up some coconut oil in a pan, then whisked together two eggs and one egg white with a little soy milk, s&p, paprika and dried basil, then poured in to the pan. Once almost cooked through, I crumbled broccoli florets over the top, then covered with shredded mozzarella and placed under the grill to get all melty and delicious. Lastly, fold in half with your spatula, plate up, top with more paprika and FGBP and dig in! :)
