There’s been a bit of a change of tack this month. Whilst I’ve been focussing on eating more healthily for a while (as well as trying to make sure we don’t have multiple menus for me, my gluten-eating husband, and dairy/egg-free baba!) I haven’t been seeing the results I’ve wanted in the gym. I’ve a feeling it’s been down to too small dinners, and oh-so-many naughty sugars and carbs in between meals! To give me the boot in the britches I need, I’ve signed up to The Body Coach ’90 Day SSS Plan‘. More about that in a later post, but some of the recipes you’ll see springing up here are probably from this plan! As work ramps up, the focus has very much been on quick and easy options this month.
These super quick-to-make Oaty, Nutty, Fruity Cookies are from the River Cottage Light and Easy cookbook – which I continue to refer to on a regular basis! A great buy for anyone who is wheat and dairy free.
Food prep has been the order of the month – it’s much easier to stay in control of your diet if you have healthier options there waiting for you! I find those pictures of clear tuppaware pots of goop so sad though. I’ve rediscovered my lovely lunch pot from Black & Blum.
An adaptation of a recipe from The Body Coach – sticky miso & ginger salmon with spiralised broccoli noodles. I just love this way to use a broccoli stalk – the flavour-packed part of the veg I always used to throw away
I’ve been making lots of omelettes and frittatas as cheap, protein & vegetable packed meals. I always make extra so I have leftovers for a quick breakfast! Why not try my ‘frugal frittata’?
Keeping with the quick and easy theme – these homemade steamed veg bags make a selection of fresh veg for lunch a doddle. Just add 1tbsp of water, pierce the bag, and microwave for 2 minutes for perfectly steamed veg!
