Halloumi wrapped in ham for breakfast

Not much to explain there. Cut pieces of halloumi, wrap in ham (or bacon) and fry in butter in a pan until golden and soft.

I enjoyed this with some cherry tomatoes and coriander, and a bit 
of bearnaise sauce :)

LCHF Smoothie - Perfect breakfast

I had this yesterday morning after a 1,5 hour walk with Penny, our dog. I was exhausted and warm, so a creamy, cold smoothie was perfect.

I simply put this in the blender:

1 dl of frozen raspberries
A dash of cream
½ dl of greek yoghurt
2 table spoons of vanilla yoghurt
1 dl of full fat milk

LCHF Ceasar Salad Freckles style

So, what is a Ceasar salad Freckles style? The salad mix is made out of ruccola salad, pieces of sweet melon, pomme granate, tomatoes and a bit of yellow peppers.
In addition to that, pan fried chicken thigh fillets seasoned in salt, pepper and BBQ seasoning, oven dried parma ham until it goes really crunchy, and to top it off, my interpretation of a ceasar dressing - mayo, lemon, garlic and dijon mustard! I don't really care for the taste of anchovies so I skip that totally.

All in all, this salad definitely goes in to the favourites for this summer. Filling, yummy and very LCHF! Try it out!

Dry the parma ham until crunchy on an oven tray with olive oil on 150 degrees.

Trim the chicken thigh fillets and seasoned as you wish.

Chop the sweet melon into pieces.

Take the pips out of half a pomme granate.

Chop a quarter of a pepper and two tomatoes.

Mix everything in a bowl with sea salt, olive oil and a bit of vinegar.

Fry the chicken in butter in a pan, and take the parma ham out of the oven and plate the lovely salad.

Stuffed mini peppers LCHF style

These stuffed peppers I actually made as a starter for dinner, just because they were so cute, but you could easily have this as a main, I even had it for breakfast the other day. 3 small peppers were perfect for a breakfast!

It is actually a very simple recipe, you basically stuff the peppers with whatever suits your pallet. I fried up some minced beef in butter (of course!), seasoned it generously with salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic, cumin and some paprika. I also added a dash of cream and some hot salsa.

Before adding the mince into the halfed peppers, I added some philadelphia cheese. On top I sprinkled some mozarella cheese and very finely chopped yellow pepper and tomatoe. Then in the oven it goes, for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and yummy!

Too much breakfast!

Yeah, let's just say I overdid it this weekend. Way too much breakfast on that plate! It was more lunch a brunch actually. Even tho I left some, I still ate way too much.
At least I stayed full until a late dinner!
