Mini Mushroom and Spinach Frittatas

We love these little frittatas! They are fairly quick to make, ideal for those doing keto and very convenient. Make a batch and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. They only need 30 seconds in the microwave to reheat, so two in the morning and you will be good to go. We added a small amount of reduced fat cream cheese to the mix: if you have any of the flavoured ones on hand (like onion and chives), even better! It’s important to caramelise your mushrooms and wilt the spinach beforehand: it adds massive flavour and reduces unnecessary moisture, so don’t skip that step as tempting as it may be.

Makes 6

Calories per serving (1 serving = 2 mini frittatas) = 221 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 14g
    • of which saturates 3.9g
  • CARBS – 2.6g
    • of which sugars 1g
  • PROTEIN – 18g

Ingredients:

2 tsp olive oil
170g mushrooms, finely chopped
45g baby spinach, stalks removed and thinly sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 medium eggs
70g almond milk
1 TB reduced-fat cream cheese
white pepper

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and fry the mushrooms until golden and caramelised. Add the finely sliced spinach and allow it to wilt. Lower the heat and cook until all moisture has cooked out. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, almond milk and cream cheese until well combined. Tip the cooked vegetables into the whisked eggs and stir well. Season the mixture with salt and white pepper.

Grease a muffin tin and use a small ladle (or ¼ size measuring cup) to evenly distribute the mixture into the muffin tin. There will be enough to make 7, and they should be filled 7/8th high. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the centre of one comes out clean.

Allow to cool slightly, then run a knife around the edges to pry them out. (If you can brave hot sauce at breakfast time, these are great with a drizzle of Sriracha!)

Smashed Avocado on Toasted Microwave Egg Bread

A scrumptious and satisfying breakfast where the ‘bread’ can be made ahead of time (and even frozen!) It’s important to mention that the Tupperware dish we used was an 11cm x 11cm lunchbox dish – simply perfect to mimic sandwich size. Try and get as close as you can to this. While these slices freeze perfectly, we don’t advise doubling the recipe if you want more yield – instead make separate batches inside the microwave to ensure thorough cooking. It’s worth it because this is a game-changer for those doing keto!

Serves 2

Calories per serving = 251 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 20.6g
    • of which saturates 3.4g
  • CARBS – 3.9g
    • of which sugars 2.8g
  • PROTEIN – 9.5g

Ingredients:

For the ‘bread’
4 TB almond flour
2 TB ground flax seed
1 tsp baking powder
pinch cayenne pepper
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp mustard powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and freshly ground black pepper

To finish the dish
½ avocado
salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ lemon
2 slices of Microwave Bread
1 tsp olive oil
1 large tomato, sliced
handful salad cress or washed sprouts

Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients to make the ‘bread’ in a small bowl. Grease a small microwave-friendly dish (see the head note for tips on size) and spoon the contents in. Cook on high in the microwave for 90 seconds, then remove. Tip the solid mass out onto a chopping board and allow to cool. Once cooled, turn the mass on its side and slice into 3 slices. Set aside.
  2. Roughly crush half the avocado in a bowl using the back of a fork. Season with salt and pepper and squeeze a lemon into the mixture.
  3. To finish the dish, heat the olive oil in a small pan and lightly fry two slices of microwave bread until toasted on both sides. Remove, then lay the slices of tomato on each and top with the avocado mixture. Garnish with the salad cress.

Bacon And Egg Muffins

These bacon and egg muffins are so delicious and way more filling than they look which is a good thing, as we need to fill ourselves up with protein in the morning to prevent energy crashes throughout the day.  You could make these the night before and eat on the go the next morning as they hold together very well and are so good you’ll struggle to not scoff the whole lot.

Makes x6 muffins / calories per muffin = 159 cals

Macros per muffin:

  • FAT – 12g
  • CARBS – 1g
  • PROTEIN – 13g

IMG_1907

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 200g courgette, grated
  • 30g parmesan, grated
  • 6 rashers back bacon
  • Black pepper

 

How to prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 170c fan /190 electric / gas mark 5
  2. Line your cup tins with the bacon rashers, making a bacon cup, press down to seal any holes to keep the egg mix contained. (You won’t need to grease the tin as the bacon provides enough of its own fat, which will stop it sticking.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the grated courgette, parmesan, and eggs, season with pepper then spoon the mixture into the bacon cups.
  4. Bake for 25 mins until the egg is cooked through.

Spinach & Red Onion Frittata

Another high protein breakfast!  For all those who take part in my Action Reaction Training programmes I prescribe only Protein, Fat’s and Fibre for breakfast, as research shows that what you eat for breakfast selects which energy system you’ll predominately use for the remainder of that day (metabolic flexibility). So as an example, if you have fats for breakfast, then you’re more likely to use fat as an energy source for the rest of that day, and if you have carbohydrates for breakfast, your body will more likely use glycogen as a fuel source.

So step away from the cereals and fruits and whip yourself up some eggs.

1 serving / calories per serving =374 cals

Macros:

  • FAT – 24g
  • CARBS – 6g
  • PROTEIN – 31g

IMG_1035

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs , beaten (ladies, use x2 eggs)
  • 150g spinach
  • 50g red onion, diced
  • Slice of lemon
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1tsp lucy bee coconut oil

 How to cook:

  1. Pre-heat an overhead grill to a medium heat.
  2. Steam the spinach for 2-3 mins until wilted. Remove and place spinach on top of some kitchen roll to help absorb the moisture. Transfer to a plate, squeeze over the lemon, season with salt and pepper and set aside for now.
  3. Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and fry the onion for 3-5 minutes until soft.
  4. Add the spinach to the pan with even distribution, then pour over the eggs being sure to cover the base of the pan.
  5. After 1 minute on the hob, place the pan under the overhead grill to finish off the top of the frittata for 1 minute further.

Enjoy.
