easy meals

🍏🍏🍞🍞Breakfast today 2 Granny Smith apples topped with cinnamon & multigrain toast with roasted red pepper hummus.

Hummus is a great alternative to butter/margarine on toast if your looking for a healthier choice with minimal effort 👌

🍏🍞🥜🍌A massive brunch today as I have a lot of work stuff to do and probably won’t get a chance for more than two meals. Luckily I made extra spring green wraps so will have an easier dinner 😅😍👌
This is pretty much the exact same as yesterday with the addition of 2 extra pieces of toast topped with 30g peanut butter and sliced banana ( I put the exact amount of peanut butter as I think we all can be guilty of going in a little too heavy haha 😂)

one of my fave easy meals and homemade recipes, ever. 

{roasted @traderjoeslist wild caught shrimp 🍤 tossed with gnocchi, cherry tomatoes 🍅, spinach 🌱 + kalamata olives} … so simple, so delish 💕

Gluten free ramen

Okay it’s time for me to share a low-spoon, gluten free, MSG free ramen recipe because I just ate it and it was good. Real good.

Get this shit

(You can use the miso packet if you want but I didn’t because some soy products trigger migraines for me and I’d prefer not to have that happen, ya feel? The noodles are what you want.)

  • Get yourself a bowl of broth or water, enough to cover the noodles
  • Add in whatever you want (I added a tiny bit of sesame oil, frozen veg and fresh garlic and ginger, but you could substitute dried easily)
  • Microwave for like 4 minutes then let sit until soft
  • Drain it! You still want some broth but I didn’t want mine soupy.
  • Add in flavors like tamari sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, even peanut butter.
  • EAT IT - this is the best step 10/10 would consume again

Hungry? Want to have something that’s filling but you don’t have the energy to Make Something™? Then this amazing recipe is for you if:

1) you have a microwave

2) you one (1) potato and a bowl to put it in

3) hot water

Put the potato in the bowl. Fill it halfway with hot water. Stick in the microwave for 10 minutes (time varies with size of potato).


Go to your fridge and see what you have to put on the potato. Cheese? That’s perfect? Butter? GREAT. Half-empty can of sweet corn? Excellent. Leftover baked beans? Wonderful. Collect toppings on the counter and get a plate out. Halfway through the microwave time, pause it, flip the potato and poke holes in the top with a fork. Assess softness. Resume.


When the potato is done, take it out carefully (remember you’ve got hot water) and plop it onto your plate. Cut a cross into the potato. Add butter and other meltable toppings while the potato is still very hot. Add more toppings. Grab that same fork and enjoy.

🍝🌶🌳🍔🤤😍Once more killing the under 500 cal game haha. 2 Amy’s kitchen burgers 🍔, purple sprouting broccoli, kimchi and wholegrain pasta in home made tomato sauce all comes in at a total of 486 cals! 🍝🍔🌳😍🌶✊️🤘👌🤤

Sauce: (serves one)
50g pasata
10g (approx) onion
½ tsps garlic
Pinch mixed herbs 🌿
1 taps olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste.

Sweat off onion and garlic in oil
Chuck everything else in and cook on a low heat until it tastes good 🙃

This makes enough for about 60-80 grams of pasta

Easiest & tastiest meal ever: oven roasted fingerling potatoes, young asparagus, and fat salmon fillets with skin.

Five minutes of food prep before stuff starts in the oven and another five minutes while part of the meal is cooking. If using non-stick pans, you only need a tablespoon of oil for the whole meal!

Directions:
• Preheat oven at 425°F.
• Rub salmon with oil and your choice of seasoning and set aside.
• Wash the potatoes and asparagus.
• Trim the dry woody part of the asparagus off.
• Toss the asparagus in oil, sea salt, and pepper.
• Pop in the oven on a baking pan on the bottom rack of the oven.
• Set a timer for 10 minutes.
• Slice fingerling potatoes lengthwise.
• Toss the potatoes in oil and your choice of seasoning.
• Stir up the asparagus on the pan and move to the top rack.
• Place the potatoes on the middle of the bottom rack.
• Set the timer for 10 minutes again.
• Take out the asparagus.
• Stir up the potatoes.
• Put the salmon in the middle of the bottom rack.
• Move the potatoes to the top rack.
• Set the timer for 10 or so more minutes. (Depending on the thickness of the salmon, it’ll be done in 6-12 minutes.)
• Aaaand you’re done!

always chasing that perfect stack and killer first bite 😍

how to make my FAVORITE paleo pancakes:

- mash 1 extra ripe banana

- mix in 1 whole egg, batter will be fairly thin but chunky

- season with cinnamon

- for a little more fluff, add ½ - ½ tsp baking soda

cook as you would normal pancakes. I used a small slightly oiled pan {@traderjoeslist coconut oil spray for the win!} flip once edges are firm and begin to bubble. top with your favorite nut butter and melty, gooey berries.

☀️☀️☀️Welcome to the second edition of “help, my English arse can’t cope with any temperature above 20 degrees!” 🥀💀☄️😭

Today I made a literal bucket of pasta salad so expect it to feature heavily over the next few days haha 😅

Ingredients.

Pasta. I used buckwheat as I was feeling adventurous….okay it was all I found in the cupboard that I think I purchased in an ill advised late night Ocado perusal 😒 you caught me.

Vegetation. I have tinned sweet corn 🌽, red and green peppers, spring onion, kimchi and kale (check me a my bougie leafy greens)

Sauce. I’ll let you work out the proportions…Plain yoghurt, garlic cholula, garlic, olive oil (just the tiniest bit), vinegar, salt and pepper

Good luck 😉😅
