Today is day one of my healthy new life. You are going to find that there is going to be a lot of healthier recipes here on the blog. Don’t worry though, I will still be treating myself to sweet treats every now & then so you will still find some yummy indulgent food here too. If you want to follow me on my new healthy lifestyle (and hopefully a lot of weight loss) you can follow the journey at Living Sweet & Simple. I will be sharing the recipes here though. Today I kicked off the new healthy life with a beautiful breakfast.
I prepared this on the weekend & then this morning I just had to reheat in the microwave, cook some wholemeal toast & eat. When I was doing the fruit & veg shopping on Friday, I found a bargain at my local fruit & veg shop when I spotted a box of tomatoes for $4.99. That’s right! A whole box that would normally have been the price of 1 kilo. A lot of this weeks recipes will involve tomatoes if you didn’t just guess that. I used to make this breakfast when I was a gym junkie. Yes, hard to believe but I used to get up every morning & go to the gym for at least an hour. I found that this breakfast was filling & kept me full of energy a lot longer than breakfast cereals. It is seriously easy to make & if you make a huge batch then you will have your breakfast organised for weeks!
In a big saucepan, throw in tomatoes, mushrooms & drained tin corn with a generous amount of olive oil.
Cook on medium high, uncovered for around 10 minutes. I like to cook it until it starts to look a bit like a chunky sauce. Then increase the heat to high for around 5 minutes or until it starts to thicken. If you are making it in advance for breakfast, freeze in 250ml containers (freezer safe & microwave safe).
When you want a quick & nutritious breakfast that takes as long as cooking toast, pop the lid off a container & reheat while your toast is cooking (follow your microwave instructions from the manufacturer)
This is delicious!
I like to eat breakfast after the kids have gone to school so this morning I had an apple & a cup of warm water with fresh lemon squeezed in when I got up this morning to keep me going.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
