I love the person who invented brunch! Bridge that gap of two meals! As you will see from my older posts I don’t tend to follow a strict nutritional guideline. I understand that some people need a structure, but I also want people to enjoy their life and not stress about hitting specific timings of meals. Like I said if you are going for peak gains then these factors of macro nutrient timing are important. But for the everyday person this isn’t massively important. As long as you hit your calorie target and put the right stuff in your body you will be fine and healthy. KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Here I have knocked up an easy recipe for you that will be a great weekend brunch recipe and perfect to get you going if you had one too many on the Friday night.
Quick veggie hash
Serves two – 15 minutes
- Drizzle of olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 courgette, sliced
- handful of button mushrooms, cut in half
- sprinkle of spices (piri piri or paprika)
- 2 tomatoes, quartered
- 2 good handfuls of fresh spinach
- handful of fresh coriander
- 4 eggs
Whack a non-stick frying pan on the heat and fry your onion in the olive oil until just turning soft. Now throw in your courgette and mushrooms, continue cooking for a few more minutes until lightly coloured and starting to turn soft.
Sprinkle in your spices, throw in your tomatoes and spinach, toss around the pan then set to one side allowing the residual heat to wilt the spinach, finish by throwing in the coriander.
Meanwhile bring a saucepan of water to a gently boil, add a good splash of white wine vinegar. Gently crack your eggs in and poach for 3-4 minutes.
Load up your plate with the veggie hash top with your poached eggs and get stuck in.
* N.B – if you need to bulk this out throw in some part boiled potatoes and even some bacon lardons to please your carnivorous friends.
