Leading a healthy life by doing exercise and eating healthily does not mean that we have to turn our backs on our favourite dishes, such as pizza, burgers and pasta. The Fast food served in some establishments is prepared and eaten ‘quickly’ and is usually quite low-priced. This type of food is linked to a diet that is not very healthy for the body, and because of this, there has been an increase in places offering healthier products.  

You can also access different healthy fast food recipes at home.

Oat pancakes and banana without sugar 

This could be a perfect breakfast, as it is healthy and very wholesome. If you also add some red fruits, you will complement it with additional vitamins.  


Ingredients: 

2 eggs

1 ripe banana

50 g oat flour

Cinnamon, to taste

Topping: natural yogurt or fruit of your choice


Instructions:

  • First of all, mix all the ingredients with a whisk. At the same time, put a non-stick frying pan on the heat, add a drop of olive oil and spread it around the pan.
  • Then, add some of the mixture to the frying pan. When bubbles begin to appear in the mix, that’s the time to turn the pancake over. Cook it for a few seconds more on the other side and its ready to remove from the pan.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the mixture.  
  • Serve the pancakes with a little bit of natural yogurt and red fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or banana slices.

 

Sweet potato chips

You will never feel guilty after eating potato chips again. These sweet potato chips are a super-healthy and delicious alternative.  


Ingredients: 

Sweet potato

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt

Spices: turmeric, black pepper and curry powder


Instructions:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200º. Peel and cut the sweet potato into chip shapes.
  • In a bowl, add the chips along with the olive oil, salt and the spices, and mix well.
  • Then, put the chips into an oven dish (preferably with some greaseproof paper underneath so that they don’t stick) and ensure that they are separated and spread out.
  • And, finally, bake them at 180º for 30 minutes.

Accompanying them with a sauce like tzatziki (natural yogurt, lemon juice, cucumber, extra virgin olive oil, salt pepper and mint) is fantastic.
