On some mornings, even though you’re trying to eat healthier especially with regards to your weight loss goals, you’re probably pressed for time and need to make something that’s quick and healthy at the same time. Since that can actually be a hassle, I’ve compiled these 5 quick and easy recipes for you to try the next morning you’re in a rush and want a quick and healthy bite.
1) Herb omelette with fried tomatoes
- Heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan, then cook the tomatoes cut-side down until starting to soften and colour. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the herbs and plenty of freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl.
- Scoop the tomatoes from the pan and put them on two serving plates. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir gently with a wooden spoon so the egg that sets on the base of the pan moves to enable uncooked egg to flow into the space. Stop stirring when it’s nearly cooked to allow it to set into an omelette. Cut into four and serve with the tomatoes.
- 50g self-raising flour
- 50g wholemeal or wholegrain flour
- 2 small eggs, separated
- 150ml skimmed milk
- berries and low-fat yogurt or fromage frais to serve
- Sift the flours into a bowl or wide jug and tip any bits in the sieve back into the bowl. Add the egg yolks and a splash of milk then stir to a thick paste. Add the remaining milk a little at a time so you don’t make lumps in the batter.
- Whisk the egg whites until they stand up in stiff peaks, then fold them carefully into the batter – try not to squash out all the air.
- Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and pour in enough batter to make a pancake about 10 cm across. Cook for just under a minute until bubbles begin to pop on the surface and the edges are looking a little dry. Carefully turn the pancake over. If it is a bit wet on top, it may squirt out a little batter as you do so. In that case, leave it on the other side a little longer. Keep warm while you make the remaining pancakes. Serve with your favourite healthy toppings.
3) Healthy Sandwich
- 2 pieces of white box bread or from Rye
- 2 leaves of Romaine lettuce
- 2 slices of Turkey ham

- 50 grams of unsalted peanut
- 1 pinch of honey mustard
- 1 pinch of Mayonnaise
- 1 drizzle of olive oil
- 1 slice of yellow cheese
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 tomato
Toss the loaves in a pan (without getting too stiff or too soft). Clean and disinfect your 2 leaves of lettuce, tomato and cucumber. Spread the mayonnaise on one slice of bread and on the other the mustard-honey. Place a leaf of lettuce on each of the slices of bread. Place the slice of yellow cheese on the bread with lettuce. Add some cucumber slices (No more than 5) Add sliced ham, tomato, peanut and walnut, then add olive oil. Join the 2 loaves with care not to throw away the bread ingredients and enjoy your sandwich!
