I make three bows of each (breakfast, lunch, snack) for the weekdays I’m not fasting (3/5).
I make them on a Monday night and store them in the fridge small plastic bowls until I just grab them and take them to work each morning.
It saves a lot of time in the mornings through the week and ensures I’m prepared with my own food and not tempted to snack on crap at work.
Here’s what I put in them:
Half a cup of rolled oats
A handful of flaked almonds
A handful of raisins
A heaped tablespoon of milled flax seed
A sprinkle of cinnamon
Half a cup of coconut milk
Two heaped teaspoons of low fat Greek yoghurt
Half a cup of water
(Option to add a sprinkle of ground coffee if you want for an extra morning kick)
Mix it all up and leave it in the fridge overnight.
(Option to stir some thin slices if banana in before cooking.)
Add some coconut milk in the morning and cook for 2:10, stirring half way.
Smoked Salmon Sweet Chilli Salad
5 cherry tomatoes (halved)
5cm of Cucumber (sliced and cut into 8ths)
A tablespoon of chopped mixed nuts
80g smoked salmon, cut into small bits
A tablespoon of grated cathedral city cheese
A tablespoon of milled flax seed
Half a teaspoon of sweet chilli sauce
A drizzle of olive oil and lemon dressing (extra virgin olive oil mixed with lemon juice)
Put in a sealed tub and shake to mix.
Leave in fridge until you need it.
ENERGY SNACK BARS
Fishy Nutty Energy Bars
175g cooked king prawns, chopped small (could have used chicken or ham)
3 eggs, milk and Philly cheese to make scrambled eggs
1 cup of brown basmati rice, boiled for 10 mins
80g crushed / chopped Cashew nuts
1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
A handful of raisins
Two teaspoons low fat Greek yoghurt
Milled flax seed to top
Cook the rice for 10 minutes, then drain.
Cook the scrambled eggs in a large bel in the microwave for three minutes.
Add all of the ingredients to the scrambled egg bowl and mix together
Spread out and press mixture down in a pan or shallow bowl.
Top with milled flax seed.
Leave in the fridge overnight
Cut up into energy bars the next day and store in plastic tubs
I have no idea how the snack bars are going to turn out but I have a feeling they might not be the tastiest thing on the earth.
The original recipe had ham instead of prawns, but i couldn’t get ham so I used prawns instead. Perhaps chicken would have been a tastier option?!
We’ll see. I’ll let you know if they’re minging or not. Lol.
