Monster Guide: The "Skinny" Fry-Up

 

When someone suggests a fry-up, those on a diet will run a mile. The simple thought of a greasy, unhealthy full English is enough to put on the pounds … or so they think …

At Monster HQ, we believe it’s important to keep a balance in your diet to ensure you’re not depriving yourself of the little pleasures in life. And who doesn’t love a cooked breakfast?

While prepping for my very first competition, I toyed with the idea of having a fry-up for breakfast at the weekend, but resisted. Then one day, I fitted a mini, skinny fry-up into my macros. From then on, it became a guilt-free meal that was a welcome break at the weekend, after having stuck to a strict calorie-controlled meal plan throughout the week.

Here, I have made a skinny fry-up recipe using my favourite items:

  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 rashers of unsmoked bacon
  • 1 whole tomato
  • Tomato sauce

Using coconut oil is great, as the fatty acids found in it are beneficial to your body. Benefits of using coconut oil over any other are:

  • It provides extra energy which will burn more fat
  • The acid found in coconut oil fights bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Coconut oil can kill your hunger
  • The acids in coconut oil are turned into ketones
  • Coconut oil is proven to improve blood cholesterol levels and can lower the risk of heart disease

 

Once you’ve cooked your breakfast, serve it with a black coffee to get that fire started in your belly! Grill your tomatoes and finish off with some Walden Farm’s calorie free ketchup, and there you have it – a guilt-free, great tasting, good fat-ridden fry-up!

 

TOP TIP: Use a smaller plate to serve your food on. This way, your brain tricks itself into thinking you’ve eaten more, which helps you feel fuller for longer.
