RECIPE: 5-Minute Spicy Baked Beans

For week 9 of Rick Hay’s 12 week anti-ageing fitness plan, he shows you how to make a protein-filled spicy baked beans meal for breakfast in under 5 minutes.

Baked beans on toast


These spicy baked beans for breakfast, one of the most important meals of the day, will help speed up your metabolism and keep you full with a ton of protein to start your day. The thermogenic chili spices added to the beans have fat burning properties. This breakfast will kickstart your day – and your metabolism. Be sure to not overload on the ricotta cheese, as it can add plenty of calories to your meal.

A few tablespoons of baked beans
Sprinkling of fresh or dried chili peppers
1 piece of toast, cracker bread or rice cake
A small dollop of regular or low-fat ricotta cheese (about a tablespoon or less)

Add a few tablespoons of baked beans to a frying pan and sprinkle fresh chili peppers or dried chilli flakes on top of the beans for a thermogenic boost. Leave the beans on the frying pan for about a minute or two and place on the plate. You then have a choice of one piece of toast, cracker bread or rice cake to pair with your breakfast. Upon the chosen carb, spread a small dollop (about a tablespoon or less) of ricotta cheese.
