Healthy Porridge with Greek Yoghurt
- 5 ounces of porridge oats
- 1 cup of skimmed milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt
- A scoop of flaked almonds
Place the oats in a medium saucepan and 200ml of milk. Stir well and then put over high heat until the mixture starts boiling. Reduce heat to minimum, and whisk while the porridge thickens for 3-5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and pour into another pot. Finish with a spoonful of milk, a little sugar, diced banana and smattering of toasted flaky almonds. And there you go! One cup of healthy honey-sweetened porridge for a healthy breakfast!
Healthy Scrambled Eggs on Toast
- 2 egg whites
- 4 egg yolks
- Some olive oil
- A pinch of garlic powder
- A handful of parsley
- A slice of whole-grain bread
- Tomato paste
Put a non-stick skillet on the burner and switch to low heat. Splash some olive oil on top. Separate the four egg yolks into one cup from the cream. Keep the two egg whites in a separate container. You’ll need them soon. Then, pour the 4 egg yolks into the pan, add the remaining egg whites and stir for 1 minute. Stir in a tablespoon of salt and black pepper. Remove the chopped parsley and garlic powder. Sprinkle with olive oil. Replace the eggs every minute or so until much of the eggs are firm but still appear fluffy. Toast the bread and scatter the tomato paste evenly throughout the dish. Serve the eggs on top of everything.
Healthy Tossed Salad with Greens
- A handful of arugula
- Half a medium-sized avocado
- Some roma tomatoes (sliced)
- A splash of olive oil
- Red apples (diced)
Wash the arugula thoroughly until the water runs clear. Place the leaves in the center of a towel, roll up the two ends and shake this ten times to drive the remaining water into the towel. Place the arugula in a mixing bowl and make sure it’s big enough to shake the salad properly. Make sure the Roma tomatoes are chopped into thin slices. Garnish the salad with sea salt and pepper. Sprinkle some olive oil. In the mixing bowl, add the tomatoes and sliced apples, and then mix with your fingers. With a sharp knife, cut the avocado open and pull the halves apart like you do a bottle. Peel off the skin of the avocado, and position it on a flat surface. Cut into quadrangles. Afterwards move to your salad and serve in a dish.
Healthy Omelette with Cherry Tomatoes
- 3 large sized eggs
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- 1 tbsp olive oil (to fry in)
- Some mixed herbs like parsley
Cut the cherry tomatoes in two, or cut into thirds. In a non-stick omelette pan, heat the olive oil and pour in the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, and fry for 1-2 minutes on medium heat until the tomatoes are tender. Stir the eggs together gently to make a frothy mixture. Scatter the tomatoes over the spices, then dump in the eggs. Shake the pan then stir the mixture. Once the omelette is ready, fold it over with a spatula and slide into a plate to serve.
Healthy Turkey Burger
- Garlic powder
- Some ground turkey (preferably low fat)
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- A whole grain bun
- Some leafy greens
Preheat a nonstick skillet with a pinch of olive oil. In the meantime, put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. You can mix these with your hands as it’s the most efficient way. Fold the mince and shape it into a patty shape. Add more turkey at this step if you want a bigger portion of burger. Cook the burger for 3 minutes on each side until well browned. Season the burger with some extra salt and pepper to taste. Serve on a bun that’s piled high with leafy greens!
Healthy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Sandwich
