5 Nutritious Breakfast Ideas

Saturday, 30 January 2021

No comments

 


Good morning Saturday! 
Let's start the day with a nutritious breakfast. 
What is your go-to meal? 
I have always strived to be healthy and one of my favourite meals 
includes simple but tasty ingredients.


Porridge is one of them and I usually blast it for 2 minutes in the 
microwave and add blueberries, almond milk, and other fruits like apples, 
bananas or raspberries.  



I am also a big fan of toast with healthy spreads on top.
Some of my choices include avocado toast, 
sprinkled with herbs; salad and avocado on top 
(you can add some fruit to this one, trust me it is very delicious)
Also, eggs on toast and the combo with avocado.
Hummus and tomatoes.


An for the sweet tooths out there: peanut butter toast with banana slices on top.
You can also opt for apple slices and instead of the toast spread this on a rice cake.



So here you go; 5 ideas ( a bit more actually) for your breakfast meals.
And below I have included the ingredients you can add to your shopping list, 
in order to achieve these healthy snacks, which you can have in the afternoon too.

Ingredients:


porridge
bananas
apples
avocados
salad
hummus
blueberries
strawberries
rice cakes
peanut butter
rye bread
eggs
raspberries

Happy shopping and don't forget to subscribe for more articles like this one and let me know in the comments your thoughts.

Poached eggs on toast

Wednesday, 20 January 2021

No comments

 


I have never been able to make poached eggs and I honestly never dreamed of making one any time soon.
But with this technique ( which is by the way absolutely genius) everything is so super easy and quick.
One truly special person to me showed me how to make these poached eggs and I was happy to assist with my usual role- chopping and prepping. 

All you will need here is: 
some toast, 
eggs ( as many as you like)
pickled beetroot
olives
pickled mini onions ( I know, but yes, they do exist and are tasty)
cherry tomatoes
soft cheese ( for the toast) 
coarse pate ( for the toast)


There is not any particular quantity here as you can add or remove depending on how hungry you are or how many people will feast on the result.


Additionally, you will also need some: 
cling film
one glass

For the ultimate trick, you can see below.





I truly hope you will like and enjoy this recipe and please let me know how you do your poached eggs and what your techniques are.

Easy Home Made Burritos

Tuesday, 19 January 2021

No comments


Some of the ingredients we have used for these homemade super easy burritos I am going to attach below
for your reference. Again, We have simply used whatever we had left in the fridge so there really is not anything you can not use here. Play with it and have fun.
I particularly liked the chopping and neatly prepping everything on the plate ready to be cooked.
One additional piece of advice is to section the ingredients on: which ones go first and which ones require more cooking time, then the sauce etc.






* Here we used two Old El Paso kits: Burrito kit and Enchilada kit, purely for the wraps and the difference of sauce texture. We have added both sauces to the mix below. Also, do not forget to add their spices additionally to yours- You will not regret it. They are oh so lovely!



* The Deroni tomato sauce is not actually a sauce but more of a spread. It comes from Bulgaria ( my native country) and I simply love it. It is one of my childhood food memories that has just been embedded in my taste buds and once in a while, I insist on adding it here and there. You, however, can opt for any tomato sauce/paste.





* Can you spot the different textures of the wraps? The enchilada kit wraps tend to be more yellowish and tastes a bit better but overall both are very tasty. 


Lastly, we love olives so much so adding them was no brainer really.
Again, you are more than welcome to change and tweak this recipe by your own liking and I cannot wait for you to share your foodings results in the comment section below.

A healthy portion is determined on how big you feel your stomach is and not your hungry eye.
So let's get to it. Another tastefulness from my kitchen with love to you:

Serves 4
Preparation 20 minutes
Cooking 10-12 minutes 
( so if you have a summer soare and you want to impress your guests, the quicker the better)

Ingredients


  • 1 medium egg white
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 hen pheasant breasts, boned, skinned, sinew removed and cut into 2cm cubes ( send your men  on a hunt either in the open wild or to the shop for that hen)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 50g fresh ginger, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  • 4 pak choi, roughly shredded

Preparation

  1. Put the egg white into large bowl and break up slightly with a whisk. Add sesame oil, cornflour, salt and pepper and mix well.

  3. Once thereat is rested, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a wok until smoking. Drain the meat well and fry in small batches for 1-2 minutes just to seal the meat. remove from the pan and keep warm.
  4. Wipe out the wok, then heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil until smoking. Add the ginger and onion and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

Plum Clafoutis or some guilty summer pleasures

No comments

I really want to share this yummy recipe as it is one of the few new experiments I have tried out this summer and I swear it is deliciously tasty. And if you feel too guilty like me you can always go sweat it out in the gym afterwards. To be honest I find home made pies and cookies much healthier than the ones sold in shops.
Hope you enjoy this one!

Serves 4-6
Prepare 15 minutes ( yes! only 15 min to prep..wow)
Cook 45 minutes ( where you can read a book, chill out in the garden with a glass of wine or simply work out)

Ingredients


  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150ml milk
  • 100ml double cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 30g plain flour
  • 20g unsalted butter
  • 1tbsp light brown soft sugar ( tip: I use that as a lip scrub too )
  • 6 large plums
  • 1 1/2 tsp allspice
  • double cream ( to serve)
  • icing sugar (to dust)

Preparation

  1. Heat the oven to 180 C. In a blender, whizz together the vanilla, milk, double cream, eggs, caster sugar, flour and a pinch of salt. Set aside for 20 minutes or so to allow the flour to swell in the liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, grease a wide, shallow 1.25 - litre ovenproof dish with butter. Sprinkle in the brown sugar. Halve and stone the plums and spread evenly in the dish. Sprinkle with the allspice and turn to coat, ending with the plums cut side down. Roast for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and immediately  pour over the batter. Cook in the middle of the oven for 30-35 minutes, until risen and golden. Serve hot, with spoonfuls of double cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
Bon Apetit!
