Green Beans & Bacon

When you’re first trying to eat healthy, it seems like you are being punished and all the tasty things taken away. There’s a couple of simple ways to avoid feeling deprived, and that is to allow yourself a wide range of good fats (as fat carries flavour) but increase your intake of vegetables, in particular the green ones. Bacon really helps you get used to the flavour and overcome that ‘you don’t make friends...

Sandwich Press Omelette

The sandwich press is the only way I can make an omelette. And why fight it when they turn out this good! The edges of the press keep the egg mixture from running out while the non-stick surface is perfect for easily removing the egg. You can also avoid that messy step of flipping the omelette by simply pressing the lid down as soon as the egg is sealed and folding it in half over the ingredients. This recipe serves 2 for breakfast,...

Salami Pizza Scrolls

These are made using a gluten free puff pastry which is purchased from the freezer section. Yes, I often cheat with packet items.

Bacon & Zucchini Pies

These are a great healthy way to grab some protein and vegetables first up. With bacon, eggs, zucchini, carrot and tomato these handfuls can be eaten on the way to work but they have far less garbage in them than a fast food breakfast … and lots more nutrients! The recipe is a slight variation on a traditional zucchini slice and can be made as muffins or baked in a loaf tin to make a slice. Ingredients 2 x zucchini 2 x carrots 4...
