We started Two Hungry Boys for many reasons, but chief among them was to try and “improve” the way we ate. Not by trying a short-lived health kick of 5:2, detox or some other fad, but by ensuring that as much as possible of what we ate was completely home made. Whether homemade salad or homemade self-saucing chocolate pudding, we would know exactly what was in our food and stay away from frozen ready meals and takeaways.
This extends to lunch, not just evening meals.
A ready-ripe avocado is mashed with lime juice, spread on toast, and topped with fried chorizo and a fried egg.
OK, so we were missing the pumpkin seeds and coriander specified in the recipe. But we ended up with a delicious homemade lunch that cost pennies.
