Meals I’m loving at the moment

8 Sep

A friend asked me for some meal inspiration the other day so thought I’d share a couple of meals I’m LOVING at the moment:

FRENCH TOAST AKA EGGY BREAD

2 slices wholegrain bread
3 egg whites
tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and Stevia
tsp honey (optional)

Whisk egg whites, cinammon, nutmeg, stevia together. Soak bread one side then the other in the mixture and pop in a hot pan with spray oil. Turn over after about 45 secs and repeat. Drizzle with tsp honey.
This is my current off-season breakfast staple at the moment.

 

MEDITERRANEAN WHITE FISH

150g White fish
tsp red pesto
4 olives
50g rice

Cook white fish, cook rice, pop in tupperware with a teaspoon of red pesto over the fish (for good fats) and 4 olives in the box. The pesto and olives work really well together and make white fish a little less boring, again for off-season.

 

Last part of my post – my pat on the back: Don’t laugh, but I tried my first Nectarine yesterday! (Kirsty -is that what they’re called?) I’m not a big fruit eater but when challenged by two babies under a year and their mums, I didn’t feel like I had a choice! Thanks K and thanks for the tip on when to eat them after buying!

Have a great weekend and remember, play hard, train harder,

Protein pancakes recipe

29 Jun

I’m always looking out for new recipes so when I won a tub of AthletEQ in Berry flavour at the BNBF Southern, I thought I’d see if I could make some lush blueberry pancakes.

This version of AthletEQ is a soya-based protein so great for vegans. It also has freeze-dried berries in it too so is a great source of anti-oxidants!

Flick’s EQ Pancakes (makes 2 servings)

2 scoops AthletEQ protein in Berry flavour
50g oats
3 egg whites
Tbs PB2 Peanut Butter powder (although ordinary peanut butter will work just fine!)
25ml water
Tsp Coconut Oil (for cooking – again, a normal spray oil will also work fine)

Again, nice and easy, blitz all products in a blender (except coconut oil).
Heat frying pan on high heat and add coconut oil. Reduce heat to stop oil burning.
Pour in batter and flip after 1 minute.
Voila! I made 4 pancakes from this mix.

Macronutrients (per serving)
Carbohydrates 19g
Protein 21g
Fat 5.5g

These do come out a funny purple/brown colour, but don’t be deterred, they’re yummy! The blueberry protein really retains its flavour! You could mix some PB2 into a thin paste and then drizzle this over the warm pancakes – let me know if you do!
