3 post workout protein fix

This is the first perfect protein rich lunch ( made in no time ), I used 2 eggs, a small cube of butter ( the size of my smallest nail )  chopped up fresh tomatoes, 1/4 avocado and a handful of spinach as well as some pumpkin seeds for an extra crunch ....

For this protein bowl I cooked some mixed whole grains with kale, I crushed butter beans with garlic and lemon zest and I made sweet potato chips...
Here is how I did it: 

I cooked the grains ( mixture of quinoa and freekeh ) in a medium size cooking pot for 20 minutes, half way I add the greens. 
For the beans, I heated up some olive oil in a small frying pan, adding 1 clove of minced garlic. After 1 minute add 1 tin of beans, zest of half a lemon, salt, pepper and chopped fresh parsley.
Add a splash of hot water if too dry.
Sweet potato chips: peel and cut the potato into tiny slices, spray with olive oil and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Place it onto a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes on 170 C 

Super healthy & super tasty protein rich smoothie 

These little power smoothie starters are amazing, I've recently discovered the recipe here !!!
To make this smoothie I blend 1 or 2 starters, handful of berries, 1 Tbsp nut butter, 1 chopped date, 1 tsp cinnamon and 250 ml almond milk or any liquid will do. 


  1. Lovely colour of the smoothie and the both protein bowls look good, by the way what are the green ice balls?

  2. Thank you, the green balls are a blend of fresh and raw spinach, kale, banana , flax and chia seeds. It's very simple : freeze the mixture into a egg tray or ice tray , pop them out when frozen and keep them in a bag in a freezer for a quick and easy smoothie. No more excuses such as " I have no time or I have no ingredients to make a smoothie " xx
