Egg & Avocado Flatbread

breakfast recipe for two Picture courtesy of Dine & Dish

Flatbreads are a quick meal for two. Simply pick a base like naan, some veggies, and a sauce – or in this case, mashed avocado. Depending on the toppings you choose, the assembly can involve a lot of slicing and dicing. Scooping the flesh out of the avocado is easy, minimizing the prep work involved.

The hardest part is frying eggs over-easy. To make sure they took evenly, crack them into a small bowl before adding them to the hot pan.

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 large naan

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 ripe avocado

1 tsp. red pepper flakes

8 cherry tomatoes, sliced

2 large eggs, fried over easy

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Peppered Bacon Spaghetti Carbonara

pasta recipe for two Picture courtesy of Nueske’s

If you want to cook a romantic dinner, but your kitchen skills are limited to boiling pasta, this spaghetti for two is the ace up your sleeve. It doesn’t require pre-made pasta sauce, so your significant other will be impressed.

And it has rich flavor – so filling, in fact, you’ll probably have a serving to spare because it’s loaded with bacon, egg (that’s what makes it carbonara), and cheese. You may not be able to find a wine-infused cheese like the one in the recipe, but that’s ok. Parmesan or mozzarella will tastes just as good.

Serves 3

Ingredients

1/2 lb. spaghetti

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

6 oz. applewood smoked pepper-crusted bacon, sliced into strips

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large egg

Pantry Pasta for Two

Some nights, all you want is a plate of traditional Italian pasta with chicken, but you don’t want to wait for a big pot of marinara to simmer on the stove. You can make your dream dinner in a half hour or less without relying on a frozen bag of pre-cooked ingredients, or even a jar of pasta sauce.

This quick dinner starts by assembling the sauce, and while it bubbles away on the stove, the chicken sizzles in a hot skillet. By the time it’s done, everything else will be ready to devour too.

Serves 2

Ingredients

3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1/2 red onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes with juice

1/3 cup assorted olives, pitted and roughly chopped

Salmon Quesadillas

With quesadillas, there’s hardly any effort required to turn a simple fish fry into a salmon dinner for two. The sauce to drizzle on top – a mix of just yogurt and hot sauce – doubles as a salad dressing, so it’s quick work to fill out the plate with fresh greens and fruit.

Don’t have ripe apricots on hand? Serve these salmon quesadillas and salad with orange wedges, peaches, or avocado slices instead.

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 salmon filet (about 5 oz.)

2 medium flour tortillas

1/4 cup mango ginger habanero sauce (or hot sauce of choice)

Chicken Pot Pie for Two

Making a whole pie is a lot of work, especially if you’re the type of cook to go all out and make the dough from scratch. But don’t be so daunted by the prospect of homemade pot pie that you settle for the frozen kind – those are never good.

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

1 small shallot, finely diced

1/2 medium onion, diced

Baked Acorn Squash with Quiche Filling

To enjoy a tasty quiche, you don’t even need crust. The only requirement for the indulgent custard-like dish is a quick mix of eggs and milk. Add a few veggies and maybe some cheese to taste, and you have a great baked egg dish to eat any time.

This presents itself like a large restaurant quality salad for two. Yet, the secret to making this seared beef salad isn’t some skill only chefs have; it’s all in the ingredients.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
