Egg muffins - a cracking good breakfast

These muffins are low carb and high protein, as well as being freezable - perfect for a grab and go breakfast. Prep time - 5 minutes Cook time- 20 minutes Makes 6


  • 1 pepper
  • 3 spring onions
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 eggs
  • Handful spinach
  • 50g cheddar (if liked)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce/curry powder (if liked)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 390°F
  2.  Wash and dice the pepper, onions and tomatoes and put them in a large mixing bowl
  3.  Wash the spinach, lightly chop it and add it to the bowl
  4.  Add the eggs and salt. Mix well. (Crack the eggs separately before adding, that way if you get a dodgy one it won't ruin the whole recipe)
  5. Add some hot sauce/curry powder if you like. Hot sauce works great!
  6. Grease a 6 slot muffin tin with oil and kitchen roll. Pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin slots. (If you think they might still stick to the pan use some muffin cases or cut out some baking paper to use as cases)
  7. Add cheese if liked over the top of each muffin before they go in the oven. You could also mix the cheese into the batter
  8. Bake for 15-18 mins or until the tops are firm to the touch
  9. Enjoy!
These muffins are freezable - take them out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw in the fridge. Microwave for 1/2 minutes and pop them into your  Igluu meal prep container along with some fresh fruit for the perfect breakfast on the go!

Chicken avocado club salad - ideal for lunch

Filling and packed full of protein, this chicken and avocado salad is all the best parts of a club sandwich without the added carbs. Ideal for lunches on the go! This recipe isn't freezable but you can meal prep more than one salad by doubling, tripling or quadrupling all the ingredients. Prep time - 10 minutes Cook time - 12 minutes Serves 1 (but can easily be doubles for meal prep)


Seared chicken -
  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • Garlic powder, sea salt and pepper
Salad -
  • 70g chopped romaine lettuce
  • 25g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 25g cucumber, sliced
  • 20g red onion, chopped
  • 1 rasher cooked bacon, chopped
  • 2 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
Red wine vinaigrette - makes 180ml
  • 80ml red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 120ml extra virgin olive oil


  1. Season both sides of the chicken breast with garlic powder, salt and pepper
  2. To cook the chicken, add 1-2 tsp olive oil to a large frying pan over a medium heat. Place chicken breast in hot oil. Cook chicken about 6/7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove from pan and let sit for 5 minutes to cool before slicing for the salad. You can do this in advance, and you can cook multiple chicken breasts together if you're meal prepping
  3. While the chicken cooks, make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients in a small bowl
  4. Line one section of container with romaine and layer all ingredients in sections on top. A good tip is to put bacon and avocado in separate sections of your Igluu meal prep container to keep the bacon crisp and prevent the avocado from going brown. Also store dressing separately
