Cheesy chilli squash chips with poached eggs

This meal is one that’s highly nourishing but still manages to feel that little bit indulgent thanks to the cheese, rich egg yolk and the faux “chips”.
I normally just buy a whole squash, chop it into thick chip shapes and bake them as this is the cheaper option but on this occasion the shop I was in didn’t have whole butternut squashes but did have this shape instead, so I thought I’d try them out.
Although they’re called “fusilli” which implies they’re meant to replace pasta, I personally don’t think that works as they’re just not bendy enough, I feel they work far better as a nutritious chip option that counts as 1/5 a day.

Single serving breakfast blueberry banana bread

Make this soft, sweet berry banana bread for breakfast when you’ve a morning with some free time (not one where you need to rush out the door as it needs time to cook) or else use it as a single serving sweet treat which means you don’t have to make a big batch of something which is then lying around tempting you for the rest of the week.
This also counts as 1/5 day, is loaded with fibre and you can add some protein to this recipe to help achieve a feeling of fullness.

Tasty tropical secret spinach pancakes

Yes these pancakes are green because I blended spinach into them and no you cannot taste it, spinach has such a neutral flavour that it gets completely covered when you cook these and top them with some juicy pineapple, banana and tropical coconut, that’s a win for secret greens!

This is such a stealth health way of sneaking more greens into your food without it feeling like an ordeal and when you add together the spinach, pineapple and banana it counts as 2 of your 5 a day and the “flour” for the recipe is made from oats which is a great fibre source.

These are also so easy and quick to make as you just chuck all of the ingredients into a blender until smooth then fry them up in under 5mins.
