Healthy Recipe Ideas


recipe montage

When you’re trying to eat healthy it can be easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut. Chicken, salad, eggs, chicken, salad, yogurt, chicken, salad… You get the idea. These things are obviously great to have but you can do some more exciting things with them, and you can have other things too! The photo montage above is something I sent out to my clients recently with some of my favourite healthy high protein meals on. All my own photos of tried and tested (or made up) recipes that genuinely tasted pretty damn good (in my humble opinion)

Working from top left to right we have –
2 egg omelet filled with tuna, cucumber, mashed avocado and fresh salsa
2 egg omelet with smoked salmon and spinach
Chocolate brownie flavoured protein pancakes topped with nutella, almond butter, yogurt and berries
Puy lentil salad with chopped tomatoes, spring onion and feta
Chicken and chick pea curry with cauliflower rice
Homemade protein-breaded cod with peas and sweet potato chips
Protein bread toast with mashed avocado, chopped tomatoes and basil
Meatballs cooked in tomato sauce with spiralised courgette
Chicken and chick pea curry again.. hadn’t realised I put it in twice but it is really good!
Sweet potato jacket and turkey mince chili con carne topped with 0% fat yeo valley yogurt
Salad of grated carrot, grated courgette, spinach, tomato and tuna, drizzled with apple cider vinegar and sprinkled with sesame seeds
Homemade protein pancake topped with half yogurt and berries and half lemon juice and xylitol (sugar substitute found in supermarket next to sugar)
Pan fried salmon (in organic butter and garlic) with quinoa (boiled with vegetable stock cube and pan fried vegetables (in coconut oil with balsamic vinegar)
Homemade turkey and tomato chutney burger with sweet potato chips, pan fried veg and mashed avocado
Poached eggs on protein toast with a big helping of leftover roasted veggiesTo make a recipe healthy (i.e. nutritious, high protein and not too high in calories) you’re looking for – – a source of protein – first priorty – base the meal around this. Meat, fish, poultry, eggs and puy lentils are all good options – some veggies and/or fruit – healthy fats – found in eggs, avocado, oily fish, nuts, seeds, coconut oil, olive oil. Be aware of amounts as they pack a lot of calories When using or adapting recipes, be aware of the amount of fats used – butter, olive oil, cream, full fat cheese etc This is where the calories are often packed in. You can usually vastly reduce the amounts used and still keep much of the taste by just adding some extra herbs, spices, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, tomato puree, ketchup, mustard, reduced fat dairy etc depending on what you’re cooking. If you’re interested in any of these meals and would like the exact recipe, just send me an email stating the meals you like the look of and I’ll send you the info.
