I have been working on this recipe for a while, trying out all different styles of breakfasts (muesli, toast, bacon & eggs, avo on toast, pancakes) to try and find a yummy, low calorie breakfast which is also very filling.
So here it is, the perfect breakfast to fill you up and keep you feeling good throughout the day:
- 2 poached eggs cooked in 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 avocado
- 4 cherry tomatoes
- 1 piece of multi-grain toast
- Black tea with almond/soy/cows milk (or herbal tea e.g. peppermint)
This meal has healthy carbohydrate in the bread, good fat in the avocado, protein in the eggs, part of your daily dairy requirement in the tea and a touch of flavour with the tomatoes.
Don’t feel guilty about the eggs (if you’ve ever heard anything negative about them), they are one of the healthiest and filling foods you can eat.
To avoid getting tired of having the SAME meal every day (I change my mind about what I like, like my underwear), mix the meal up by replacing the egg with 50g of fish, such as tuna, trout or cooked salmon. Or, you can try different breads such as wholemeal, rye or sourdough. Or, if you are feeling like a bit more flavour you can add some mushrooms or a small piece of grilled haloumi or tasty cheese. It’s up to you!
