How do you like your eggs?
My New Year’s resolution was to become a healthier, better me (never heard that one before right). Okay so you're thinking hang on... it's December? I know. However, like some of you may have done, I conveniently forgot my resolution until people started asking what I was doing THIS New Year’s Eve.
In September, I decided to make a change and have been exercising more regularly and being better about what I eat. For a serial sweet binger like me this was set to be a difficult task. I persevered and now in December, over 3 months since I started, I have something to show for it. My jeans fit better and I FEEL better too.
When I began thinking about how to change (my body thanked me for dropping my breakfast of doughnuts and chocolate) I knew I still wanted tasty food and variety. I came across breakfast smoothie recipes, soups and shakes… I need to chew to feel like I've eaten so liquids only are a no-go area for me.
Today I decided to get adapting, I absolutely adore mini quiche so used the same principle without the pastry and just added a few of the things I like to eat. It's packed with protein and I found they were a good way to get my daily dose of veg in early on. There are many versions of this recipe on line but this is the one that makes me smile the most : ) by adding the onions and peppers in raw, I felt it added a bit more texture to these bundles of yum.
