So I saw some pictures of myself from 18 months ago and DANG I looked good. It’s only when you look back you realise you’ve let things slip a bit. I’m still happy but with a lot of life stress going on the wagon is slightly further away from me than I’d like.
So we are back to it… made a great chilli last night and obviously I’ve been thinking all day about the left overs and here’s what I did tonight for dinner-
Chilli con carne boats:
Left over lean beef chilli
Low fat cheese
Pop chips (i mean they are better for you than nachos right?!)
And hey presto delicious little boats.
N.B The lime is ESSENTIAL, don’t skimp on the lime. Normally I’d be like “Pah, who has limes in the fridge”, but I genuinely think it makes all the difference. ZESTY.
I reckon this would make a cracking little work lunch too!
If you’re like me and my pals, you probably spend 90% of your time thinking of lunch ideas for work- I’m not a fan of reheated food which makes lunches for me at work a real chore. I quite often make me and Rich different lunches due to this.
Lunch is such a snore. So boring that sometimes I resort to breakfast again- banana pancakes for lunch. Sometimes I eat a tin of beans with a wholemeal role. I’m not gonna win any Michelin stars for lunches that for sure.
But I just rustled up this and thought I would share- it’s one of our go to lunches on the go as it’s super quick and something I don’t hate eating which is a bonus!
Super simple- usually a combo of these things:
Cheese (I obviously usually pre fry halloumi and put it in but Tesco had sold our yesterday- how dare they!)
Pitta bread (I realised VERY quickly that this was essential for my lunch as I’m a real prick if I don’t eat carbs at lunch)
Falafel (again, Tesco, where are you at with your falafel?! You’re killing my lunch vibes)
So I’ve been making these at the weekend for a while but just realised the last few weeks that they actually travel quite well for work! Just zap them in the microwave for 30 seconds if you fancy them warm- I usually can’t be bothered so just have them at desk cold 🙂
In a blender mix together 1 egg and 1 banana… simples! I also add oats too if I know I’m going to be hungry as these thicken out the mixture!
I mean if you’re feeling dead fancy then sure, add honey, add cinnamon, add a pinch of salt, add blueberries, add protein powder, add cacao- make it your own people!
Can we just talk about how disgusting this looks? Looks like an alien baby.
Fry up the mixture in a little coconut oil. Keep the heat low as these bad boys burn quickly. At least 50% of mine end up a tad burnt as I get impatient and distracted simultaneously. Chargrill adds to the flavour right?
Boxed up ready for work! Take in some Greek yoghurt and mixed berries and dollop it all on top when ready to eat! For gods sake, do not pack the yoghurt with the pancakes over night- heathens.
You can make a few days ahead as they last at least 3 days in the fridge. I generally mix the yoghurt and berries in a separate pot the night before though as they don’t last as well.
