Homemade Fast Food: Protein Pots

I like to experiment and come up with my own food solutions. So lately, when have been too busy (… ok and lazy!) to cook, I have been mushing together a bunch of high protein ingredients in to my very own “protein pots”.

What does this involve, you may ask. Basically, I pick a “soft” and a “hard” protein, so to speak, and mix the two together in a bowl. Then I top up with either fresh herbs, lemon or vinegar. Give it a good stir and your protein pot is ready in no time!

Here are a few of my favourite combos:

Tuna with a twist:

  • Tuna
  • Hummous
  • Coriander
  • Dash of lemon juice

Fat-free fish:

  • Tuna

  • Dill

Vegan delight:

  • Hummous
  • Fava or black beans
  • Parsley
  • Dash of lemon juice

It’s a quick and filling snack to have at home (and on the go as long as you have a spoon!), or make it into a full meal by adding some crackers, like the raw spirulina crispbreads in the photo below:
