GORDON RAMSAY’S ULTIMATE FIT FOOD: BREAKFAST

 

Start the year off the right way with the latest dishes from our collaborator Gordon Ramsay’s new book: Ultimate Fit Food. To celebrate its release,
we’re giving you two breakfast recipes to enjoy cooking and eating – to leave you in great shape whatever your fitness goals.

“Healthy eating doesn’t have to be dull!”

Gordon knows how important it is to eat well, whether you’re training for a triathlon or just leading a busy life.

“As a chef, I want the food that I eat to be tasty and satisfying as well as good for me. When I’m in training, I don’t want my taste buds to get bored by eating the same things over and over again.
And I don’t ever want to feel deprived. These are my go-to recipes when I want to eat well at home, and my great hope is that they will inspire you to get cooking to improve
your own health whatever your personal goal. Here’s to better health!”

These Ultimate Fit Food Breakfast recipes are the perfect way to start your morning and are ideal for maintaining a healthy weight, keeping blood sugar levels stable and
boosting your intake of a wide variety of nutrients – giving you the energy you need for the day ahead.

 


 

NOURISHING BREAKFAST

 

This nourishing breakfast is one of Gordon’s ‘Healthy’ recipes, with each serving containing:

• No more than 5g of saturated fat
• No more than 15g of sugar
• No more than 1.5g of salt

This recipe is ideal for maintaining a healthy weight and boosting your nutrient intake.

 

 

APPLE SPICED PORRIDGE

SERVES 4

“This is another of my favourite porridge recipes, this time flavoured with apple-pie spices and sweetened with apples and dates, which goes down really well with the junior members of my family – it tastes like pudding! It’s especially warming and delicious and the perfect thing to get you out of bed on a cold winter’s morning. And with its slow-releasing energy, it should keep you going until lunchtime.”

INGREDIENTS

150g jumbo rolled oats
4 dates, stoned and finely chopped
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Pinch of ground allspice
2 eating apples, cored and cut into chunks
400ml semi-skimmed milk, plus extra for serving
Sea salt

 

METHOD

1. Put the oats, chopped dates and spices into a medium heavy-based saucepan with three-quarters of the apple chunks and add a pinch of salt. Pour in the milk and 400ml of hot water and stir over a medium heat until the porridge begins to simmer.
2. Simmer gently for 15–20 minutes, stirring regularly for a creamy consistency. The apple chunks will collapse into the porridge and the liquid should all be absorbed.
3. To serve, spoon into warmed Gordon Ramsay for Royal Doulton Bread Street Slate Bowls and top with the remaining apple chunks. Serve with a little jug of extra milk on the side.

 BOOSTING BREAKFAST 

This Boosting Breakfast is one of Gordon’s ‘Fit’ recipes, containing the right amounts of macronutrients (carbohydrate, protein and fat) for an active lifestyle and provides:

• Fuel for training and endurance sports
• Proteins for recovery and repairing tired muscles
• Contains more calories to meet the needs of the body when exercising

 

PEANUT BUTTER PANCAKES

SERVES 6

“This is a simple gluten-free pancake recipe that provides lots of energy but won’t slow you down. Make a big batch and watch everyone devour them, knowing that they will be full of good things to draw on in the day ahead. It works just as well with other nut butters, so swap in cashew, hazelnut or almond butter for a change.”

INGREDIENTS

250g peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
5 eggs
4 tbsp natural yoghurt
1 tbsp rapeseed oil, for frying
Mixed berries or banana (optional)
Honey or maple syrup, to serve (optional)

METHOD

1. Mix the peanut butter, eggs, and yoghurt together in a bowl until well combined. The mixture should be a thick dropping consistency.
2. Place a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the rapeseed oil and heat, swirling around the pan to coat. Add a heaped tablespoon of the mixture to the pan and spread until it is the thickness of a Scotch pancake. Cook for 2–3 minutes, until lightly coloured, then turn over and repeat on the other side.
3. Keep the pancakes warm in a low oven or wrapped in a tea towel while you cook the rest of the mixture.
4. Serve up on Gordon Ramsay for Royal Doulton Bread Street Slate Plates with mixed berries, as well as a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, if desired.

 

PER SERVING: 418 KCAL, 29g Fat, 7g Saturates, 18g Carbs, 14g Sugars, 4g Fibre, 19g Protein, 0.60g Salt
