So I’m currently engaged in completing the Shaun T Insanity workout which, for those of you
Ingredients for my high protein breakfastwho know, is seriously intense. I do the school run first thing, come home and do my workout straight away. I have found that a high protein breakfast makes an amazing difference, however, it’s kind of hard to find a high protein breakfast that isn’t the ‘same old same old’, doesn’t involve lots of fat or isn’t high in calories so I ransacked the cupboards and found this lot, threw it together and voila!!!

  • Half a tin of kidney beans (100g)
  • Half a tin of chopped tomatos (200g)
  • 1 large egg
  • 60g cooked chicken breast
  • 1 good splash of lime juice
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp  smoked paprika
  • Bunch of finely chopped coriander stalks
  • Wholemeal pitta bread

High protein breakfast method

  1. Mash the kidney beans with a potato masher
  2. Break up the cooked chicken so it’s in small pieces
  3. Heat a non-stick pan and scramble the egg until it’s scrambled but still a bit runny
  4. Throw in the kidney beans and chicken breast, mix up well and cook for a couple of minutes
  5. Slowly add the tomato’s and mix in
  6. Dampen the pitta and put it under the grill

  8. Fill the pitta and serve
