Chia Porridge with Berries

These overnight chia pots are great for mornings when you are in a hurry as you simply pop it in the fridge the night before to soften and swell. We topped our chia pots with berries, but you could use any fruit, nuts or granola. Another variation could be to add ground cinnamon into the mixture and top with diced apples!

  • FATS – 11.3g
    • of which saturates 0.9g
  • CARBS – 17.1g
    • of which sugars 6g
  • PROTEIN – 5.4g

Ingredients:

2 TB ground flaxseeds
½ large apple, diced very small, 1mm
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 ¼ cups almond flour
¼ cup raw rolled oats
1 TB baking powder
pinch salt
1 tsp Stevia
2 TB unrefined brown sugar
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 TB vegetable oil

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine the ground flaxseed with six tablespoons water in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the finely diced apple with half a teaspoon of the ground cinnamon. Set aside.

Prepare the dry ingredients by mixing the whole wheat flour, almond flour, raw oats, baking powder, salt, Stevia and sugar. Add the remaining cinnamon (one teaspoon) to this mixture too. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, vanilla essence, oil and the flaxseed mixture. Add this wet milk mixture to the flour mixture and combine well. Fold in the diced cinnamon apples until evenly distributed.

Spoon the muffin mixture into a greased standard-sized muffin tin. You will only have enough to fill 10 spaces. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife or cake tester inserted into a baked muffin comes out clean.

Remove the muffins using a spoon and allow to cool on a cooling rack, or even better – eat them warm!

Fat-free Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

Invest in popsicle / lolly moulds and you will be making these refreshing, guilt-free popsicles all summer long. (Reusable silicon or plastic popsicle/lolly moulds are approximately £9 on Amazon and will be a great investment if you have a sweet tooth. Most are 100ml in size and come in sets of 6).

Makes 7

Calories per lolly = 71Cal

Macros per Lolly:

  • FATS – 0g
    • of which saturates 0g
  • CARBS – 9.7g
    • of which sugars 9.7g
  • PROTEIN – 6.8g

Ingredients:

230g fresh strawberries, weight after trimming
3 TB fructose (fruit sugar)
450g fat-free plain Greek-style yogurt

 

Method:

Trim the strawberries and dice into small pieces. Place in a bowl and sprinkle over the fructose, mixing well. Cover and leave to macerate in the fridge overnight.

The next morning, blitz the strawberries to a puree and fold in three-quarters of this blitzed puree into the yogurt. Whisk well to combine.

Divide the strawberry yogurt between the 100ml lolly moulds*, stopping at intervals to add a little of the remaining blitzed strawberry puree. (This just makes it look pretty by giving it a mottled appearance. You can simply combine all the blitzed puree into the yogurt if that’s easier and quicker for you.) Click the lid/stick in place in each mould, and place upright in the freezer for several hours, preferable overnight.

Remove the popsicles from the freezer 30 minutes before eating and place them in the fridge. This will result in a softer texture – and may make it easier to remove the popsicle from the mould. (If you still struggle to remove it, run a little warm water on the outside of the popsicle mould and slide the lolly out.)

*You are likely to have some leftover mixture after filling the 6 moulds. You can simply place this in a small bowl or ramekin, cover with cling film and freeze along with the others, or leave unfrozen and enjoy as an addition to your breakfast smoothie.

Overnight Oats and Berries

Oats are high in fibre, rich in anti-oxidants and surprisingly low in sugar carbs. This post workout snack can be whipped up in seconds the night before.  We also added protein powder: you probably have your favourite by now.

Chocolate Banana Mug Cake

1-minute microwave ‘cakes’ have become really popular over the last few years, so we jumped on the bandwagon! This would make an ideal snack for those of you that need something sweet every now and then. We added a tablespoon of wheat bran for extra fibre (available at Holland and Barret and very cost effective) and used only the natural sugars in the mashed banana to keep your macros in check. If you feel this may not be sweet enough, add a little of your favourite artificial sweetener or a drizzle of maple or honey into the mix.

Makes 1

Calories per serving  = 388 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 23g
  • CARBS – 36g
  • PROTEIN – 16g

Ingredients:

35g almond flour
¼ tsp baking powder
1 TB wheat bran
1 TB unsweetened cocoa powder
1 small over-ripe banana
pinch of your choice of sweetener (optional)
1 medium egg
¼ tsp vanilla essence

 

Method:

Combine the almond flour, baking powder, wheat bran and cocoa powder in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, mash the banana to a smooth puree using the back of a fork (over ripe bananas will mash easier), then add the egg and vanilla essence and whisk well to combine.

Pour the banana-egg mixture into the bowl of almond flour and mix. Pour the batter into a greased ramekin or microwave-friendly mug (no higher than ¾ up) and place in the microwave on high for 60-90 seconds. (Use a cake tester to ensure it has cooked in the centre.)

Remove from the microwave (carefully, it will be hot!) and allow to cool slightly before eating straight from the dish. Alternatively, you can run a spoon around the edges and tip the muffin-looking mini cake out onto a plate.

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!)

Baked Potato with Smoked Mackerel and cream cheese topping

A speedy, uncomplicated lunch option when you are craving the goodness of the humble spud. We topped ours with flaked, smoked mackerel stirred into low-fat cream cheese. While the smoked mackerel adds a huge amount of flavour, there is no reason why you can’t chop and add a half teaspoon of dill (or even capers) to the mixture for additional flavour. Moreish, balanced and oh-so-tasty! Double up the ingredients if you are whipping up lunch for two…

Serves 1

Calories per serving = 487 kCal 

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 25.9g
    • of which saturates 6.2g
  • CARBS – 32.8g
    • of which sugars 3.8g
  • PROTEIN – 28.7g

Ingredients:

1 small-medium baking potato (150g)
30g reduced-fat cream cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 fillet smoked mackerel
1 spring onion, finely sliced
mixed salad leaves, optional
lemon wedge, to serve

Method:

  1. Wash the potato (do not peel) and use a sharp knife to pierce several holes into all sides of it. Make a shallow cross incision on the top of the potato, then place the potato in the microwave on high for 5 minutes until completely soft and cooked through.
  2. In the meantime, place the cream cheese in a small bowl and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Remove and discard the skin from the smoked mackerel and break the fillet up into smaller pieces. Mix half the pieces into the cream cheese, setting the other half aside to top the potato.
  4. When the potato is done, push into the sides using your fingers, allowing it to open up at the top (be careful, its hot!).
  5. Spoon the cream cheese into the potato and top with the remaining mackerel pieces. Garnish generously with spring onions and serve with mixed salad leaves and a lemon wedge on the side.
