Healthy Recipe: Spicy Baked Beans ready in 5 minutes

For week 11 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 five 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.
