I always recommend to add some fruit to sweeten it up and it will also add carbohydrates without the heaviness of certain complex carbs. Bye Bye boring salads.
Super Salmon Salad
- Salmon Fillet
- Mixed Leaves ( I use Spinach, Rocket, Lamb's Lettuce, Ruby Chard)
- Mixed seeds
(I don't use salad dressing but I recommend an olive oil and balsamic vinegar)
How Do You Like your Eggs in the morning?
Eggs are so versatile, cheap and nutritious. They are loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals. Whether weight loss/ maintenance or muscle gain is your goal, eggs should be a staple in your diet.
Messy Scrambled Egg
- 5 Egg Whites
- 30g Low fat Cheese
- Handful Spinach
- Basil (chopped)
Healthy snacks are much more readily available these days which is great. You can't beat a homemade snack though :) Why not try out the energy bars with a cuppa or substitute your mid morning chocolate bar for a fruit salad with a twist.
Energy Bars - makes 9
- 2 and half cups oats
- 1/3 Cup desiccated coconut
- Scoop Protein powder (optional)
- 2 Tbsp Chia seeds
- 5 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Coconut oil melted
- 3 Tbsp. Peanut butter

Mix all dry ingredients together. Melt coconut oil and add maple syrup and peanut butter to a cup. Pour mixture in slowly and make sure to cover the dry mixture. Add to a baking tray ( I use baking paper - lazy). Refrigerate for 30-60 mins and enjoy :)
