Breakfast : With Kimchi

Hubby still on vacation and had a lot of manual work to do today so I wanted to fuel him for the day. Todays breakfast fry up with kimchi was a nice full breakfast to keep me going until lunch time. Avocado is a good fat in small amounts along with the gut benefits of kimchi off to a great start. Fry in skillet with cooking spray, egg, tomato & Italian sausage with onion.

Breakfast: this weeks breakfast

This week I am making more effort to cook meals at home rather than eat out. Hubby is on holidays so its tempting to just go out and enjoy eating out but I am aware that I don’t know how meals are prepared and calories can increase as well as sodium if I am not careful which then has a adverse affect with my health issues. I came back from 3 day weekend with what I thought were healthy meals out to find a 3kg gain. 

Italian Sausages, Onion, Egg, Vegepod Tomato & Avocado

Beetroot Puree with Pan Seared Duck

I was able to pick up some duck breasts on sale and hubby doesn’t like duck so I took the opportunity to treat myself to a nice duck lunch at home.  The hero of the dish though is the beetroot puree. I haven’t made it before and it turned out so good I decided the duck didn’t need a sauce, the puree was enough.

Steak and seafood

I wanted to do steak and chimichurri sauce i made. I didn’t really like the sauce but when i team it with the rest of the plate it was ok. This plate was 2 serves for me. I could only eat half and kept rest for another meal. (The chips fish cocktail and sea shanty with aioli for me is 1 meal in itself). Hubby ate the lot in one go. The Chimichurri sauce was a recipe from a free magazine I picked up at the supermarket.

New Years Day Breakfast

I use to watch cooking shows and they had this combo for breakfast. Here is my version. Great filling breakfast to keep you going until lunch time. A nice combination of flavours. This is one hubby liked and it was enough to fill him up for the morning without needing snacks between to get him through until lunch.

Mac n Cheese, Baked Beans, Gluten Free Sausages

Pan fried Breakfast

Hot breakfast without the grease and healthier ingredients. My last one for the year.  Pan frying in non stick skillet using cooking spray is a healthier option than traditionally frying in oil for the same type of English breakfast. Makes this breakfast a good option .

Gluten Free Sausages, Organic Free Range Egg, Tomato, Mushrooms & Tomato Sauce
