  • 1 large peeled sweet potato cut in half lengthways and then into 5mm (¼in) slices
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and cut into thin slices
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 6 British Lion eggs, beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander chopped


  1. Place the sweet potato in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to the boil and cook for about 5 minutes until just tender. Drain well.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the pepper and garlic for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the sweet potato slices, and cook, stirring, for a further minute.
  3. Pack the vegetables evenly over the base of the frying pan and pour in the eggs and plenty of seasoning. Cook over a gentle heat for about 10 minutes, mixing the cooked egg from the edge of the pan into the centre, until the egg is set all over.
  4. Preheat the grill to hot, and place the omelette under the grill, protecting the frying pan handle if necessary, to cook for 2–3 minutes to brown the top.
  5. Serve hot or cold, straight from the pan, cut into wedges, and sprinkled generously with the chopped herbs.

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
