Eggplant Pizza

 

I love pizza! But I don’t love the crazy amount of calories in it (approx 300 calories per slice) and I don’t find it super filling either. Solution: Eggplant pizza to the rescue!😍

INGREDIENTS:
1 eggplant, cut into 1 inch rounds
Pizza Sauce
Any toppings of your choice

METHOD:
Assemble pizza using the eggplants as the “crust”
Top with your favourite toppings
Bake at 350 for 25 mins (or until soft but not super mushy 😅)

And there you have it! Approximately 60 calories per slice…not bad! This is a nutrient rich alternative to pizza that will leave you feeling full and satisfied. Plus you can have multiple slices and not worry about it taking up half of your daily total calorie intake…woohoo!

Enjoy!

Instant Pot Boiled Eggs

In my latest quest of being healthier, I am trying to eat two eggs for breakfast every morning. Protein is key to feeling fuller and that assists me in not snacking mindlessly until lunch time. It has worked so far and I will continue to do this. I save time by using the instant pot and it creates a healthy breakfast…this is a win win situation ya’ll! So if you’re struggling with mid-morning snacking (or just want to learn how to use your IP!), try this boiled egg recipe. I hope it helps you achieve your health goals!

Recipe:
2 boiled eggs (or as many as you need to make)

Method:

1. Add in one cup water to the instant pot.
2. Place the trivet in the pot
3. Place your eggs on the trivet
4. Place the lid on the instant pot and seal the vent (place the vent in the middle)
5. Select the manual button and adjust/decrease time to to 3 minutes
6. Set it and forget it! This is the perfect time to get ready for work or make a coffee
7. Once the instant pot beeps, it’s done!
8. Using a spatula, quick release the seal (be careful, this will be hot and steamy!)
9. Open the lid and remove boiled eggs
10. Place in bowl of cold/ice water for 5 or so minutes
11. Peel and enjoy the perfectly boiled eggs!

Here I’ve made a breakfast salad of greens, topped with cucumbers, apricots, the boiled eggs and blueberries. Feel free to add in your own favourites!

Vegetable Hash for Breakfast

Lately I’ve been trying my best to introduce a lot of vegetables into my breakfast meals. I have noticed that for a while now my vegetable intake had decreased….a LOT. I am going to change that now. So I’ve decided I’ll start with adding some vegetables to my breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day and sets the tone for the day! Here’s to new beginnings of being healthy!

WHY VEGETABLES?
They keep me feeling full for longer and I notice I don’t snack after -keeps me going until lunchtime. Here I’ve made a vegetable hash of zucchini and orange bell pepper. This pair with some eggs is a hearty breakfast that kept me going until my next meal! No more snacking!

Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 zucchini, diced
1 orange bell pepper (or any colour!), diced
1 tsp butter
4 eggs

Method:
1.Sautée the diced vegetables in a pan in a tsp of butter
2.Once grilled, make 4 divets and crack an egg into each designated spot
3.Fry for approximately one minute and cover with lid. Cook until done.
4. That’s it! Enjoy your quick, delicious and nutritionally dense breakfast!
