Staying on track in the winter is tough. It's grey, it's cold and every superstore pushes the big tins of sweets and chocolates in your face.
I have found it particularly difficult this year. Everything seems to look ten times more appetising and I would happily carry around a fork and a bib and just eat as and when I could. When it comes to sitting down for dinner, I don't fancy my chicken, veg and sweet potato. I want something far more stodgy and flavoursome. So here is what I have done this winter so far to get me through those times.
Keep it varied:
I've changed my breakfasts every three days. I've had rice cakes with banana and nut butter, chilli con carne and mince , banana and egg pancakes, bacon and egg, rice cakes, coconut oil and and banana (not all at once!). There has been primal kitchen bars, bounce bars and pomegranate, banana and nut butter.
I have tried to keep it as flavoursome as I can and around what I really fancy. Breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day and if I wake up dreading to eat what I have infront of me it is not a good start for my day ahead.
I think my absolute favourite is 2 eggs whisked with one banana and cooked in a pan as a pancake in coconut oil. Serve with one teaspoon of honey and one tablespoon of nut butter. If you really fancy going all out, add to rashes of bacon. Amazeballs!
