Bacon and Egg Muffins
Low-calorie spray oil
6 rashers of lean bacon
½ cup chopped mushroom, pepper or tomato (or all 3!)
Salt & pepper
Pre-heat the oven. Spray a deep, non-stick muffin tin with light oil, ensuring all sides are covered. Wrap the bacon around the edge of each muffin tin line, and partially cook for 5-10 mins. In the meantime, mix the eggs, seasoning and chosen vegetables in a pourable jug. Remove the part-cooked bacon rounds from the oven, and pour the egg mix between the 6 muffin compartments. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until the eggs are fully cooked. Remove, cool, and store in the fridge. Top with sliced avocado, or eat on the go whenever you want!
Fruit & Nut Yogurt Bowl
120g Fat-Free Greek yogurt or dairy-free alternative
1 cup blueberries
12 almonds chopped
Drizzle of honey
Combine the yogurt in a bowl with the blueberries and honey. Sprinkle on the chopped almonds and take with you in a Tubberware! An easy, high-protein breakfast!
Scrambled Egg Wraps
2 eggs (or 4 egg whites)
30g low-fat grated cheese
½ diced pepper
1 slice ham chopped
1 cup spinach
1 large wholegrain tortilla
Salt, pepper & chilli flakes
In a mixing bowl or jug, whisk together the eggs, pepper, ham and seasoning. Heat a pan with a little oil, and scramble the egg mix to desired consistency. Add the cheese and spinach as the eggs are almost cooked, and scramble for another minute. Lay foil out on a plate and place a tortilla on top. Fill the tortilla with the scrambled egg mix and wrap up. Either eat immediately or keep in the fridge to grab on-the-go! Enjoy hot or cold.
