Breakfast

Mixed oats with scrambled egg and a lot more

Ingredients

  • 75g oats mixed
  • 250ml skimmed milk
  • a handful of dried cranberries
  • one whole egg, plus two lots of egg whites
  • one apple
  • 100g low-fat yoghurt

Method

Lunch

Steamed ginger salmon and sweet potato

Ingredients

  • One 130g salmon fillet
  • A chunk of ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1tsp coconut oil
  • Mixed-leaf salad 

Method

Place the salmon fillet on a sheet of tinfoil with the ginger and garlic. Wrap the foil up like a pasty, but leave a small hole in the top to let the steam escape. Cook for 20 minutes in a steamer. Place the sweet potato in a roasting tray and coat with the coconut oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes on a medium-high heat. Serve with the salad.
