I chose my username for good reason, because breaking news: students have very little money. As I stick to a (mostly) paleo diet, a breakfast/lunch of this on toast or that in a sandwich wasn't an option for me, and I had to devise my own meals. After some time of scouring for paleo meals that were ideal for my muscle-focussed diet (using a protein:carb:fat macro ratio of 40:30:30 as a basic guideline), I had trouble finding many that fit my food budget (read: not much). I stumbled across the famous 2-ingredient pancake recipe (blend 2 eggs + 1 banana, fry, flip), this was fairly ideal for my diet, but quite a pain to make every morning in a frying pan from pound-stretcher, especially if I wanted to get to the gym before a 9am lecture. Adapting from the pancakes I came up with the following recipe, it fits my macros, costs a mere Â£1.05 (may differ depending on where you shop) for an amount that could cover 2 breakfasts (I have half for breakfast and half as a post-workout meal), and tastes delicious. Apologies for the essay of an introduction, this is my first post and wanted to introduce myself somewhat, so without further ado, a recipe that requires no introduction. Ingredients: 7 eggs (you may wish to use egg whites depending on where you stand on the yolk debate) 2 bananas (preferably medium-large, as small bananas may result in more of a frittata) 1 scoop of whey protein powder (I like vanilla, but other popular choices include chocolate, maple, toffee, or banana) A dash of cinnamon (that's a metric dash, not imperial) Instructions: Preheat oven to 180C (unsure of Fahrenheit or gas mark equivalent) Grease casserole dish or equivalent how you see fit (some do not require greasing, I use 1kcal spray) Blend all ingredients together thoroughly Poor mixture into dish Place dish in the oven for roughly an hour (times may vary, keep an eye on it the first few times baking) Remove dish and allow to cool before serving Note: double, triple, quadruple the recipe if you like, increase to baking time will vary depending on the type of dish used. Feel free to recommend changes in the comments, and if you decide to try it yourself, let me know how it goes. Thanks for reading, -SB
