This dinner can be made in under 5 minutes and is made using quorn, a vegetarian substitute for meat, leafy green vegetables for a salad and thermogenic spices for flavoring. The meal is extremely nutritious and contain healthy enzymes essential in slowing down the ageing process and help with weight management. This meal has essential fatty acids that mimic the effect of the Mediterranean diet for optimum health and cognitive function.

The thermogenic spices help to metabolize fat and maintain flavoring for food without added calories. The vegetables in this meal get you 2 of 5 a day.

Drizzle of organic olive oil
1 or 2 pieces of quorn
Decent handful or a cup size of leafy greens
Sprinkle of chili spices
1 tsp. of mustard
Drizzle of liquid amino acids

Use a small saucepan to control portion sizes. First put a drizzle of organic olive oil in the saucepan. Next, take 1 or 2 quorn pieces and lay flat on the sauce pan and let simmer for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked. Mix 1 teaspoon of mustard and a sprinkle of chili flakes in a bowl and put on top of the quorn piece once cooked. Put quorn piece on plate with mustard and chili, and a bowl of leafy greens. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and liquid amino acids over the leafy greens.
