Got to be honest. With a little bit of travel and a whole lot of good food and dessert, I wanted something light but nutritious for breakfast. Something really easy to prepare that would look awesome and be good post a workout. Well, here’s what I had in my fridge!
I hard-boiled the egg and sliced it. I sliced the tomato 3/4 of the way down. I sliced the avocado. I inserted the sliced egg and avocado into the folds of the tomato, drizzled the assembled dish with some extra virgin olive oil, did a few turns of freshly ground salt, pepper and presto! Breakfast was ready.
It is one of those afternoons. I need to have a snack before working out and I feel like salt and spice and protein. If you are ever in one of those moods, try these “ready in 5 minutes” endive boats! They are crunchy, spicy, have protein and serve as the perfect snack!
Here’s what you need to get your “life boats” ready!
Simply pull apart the endive leaves. Arrange on a plate. Smear with peanut butter, drizzle some sriracha sauce, add a couple of peanuts and add a garnish of sliced chives.
Your crunchy, yummy endive boats are ready to eat! I’ve got to admit they do hit all the right notes and sure perk you up!
As I stand in front of my fridge eyeing the fruit options to have as a pre-workout snack, the jalapenos, mint and orange grab my attention. I quickly pull them out along with a red onion from the pantry, some salt, pepper and olive oil and assemble the salad pictured above!
The instructions are so simple.
Peel the skin off an orange and slice into thin rounds.
Peel the onion and cut about a 1/4 of the onion into thin slices.
Chop half a jalapeno into thin slices.
Chop a tbsp or two of mint leaves finely.
Arrange the oranges, onion and jalapeno on a plate. Garnish with mint leaves, sprinkle with salt and pepper and douse some extra virgin olive oil on top.
Savor every bite
PS. If headed to the gym, follow-up with mouth wash! That red onion can be potent:)
