Hands up who loves grilled halloumi? 🙋♀️ I'm often asked how I cook halloumi, so here are my top tips:
🧀 If you find halloumi too salty, soak it in a bowl of cold water before cooking to draw out some of the salt, then pat dry.
🧀 If I'm grilling halloumi (rather than using a griddle pan), I cut the halloumi with a crinkle knife to get the grill lines. You can buy crinkle knives from kitchen shops or Amazon.
🧀 Before grilling, I often brush the halloumi slices with something sweet, like honey or chilli jam. The sweetness really complements the salty halloumi.
🧀 When cooking halloumi under the grill, watch it like a hawk as it can catch easily. I grill for a couple of minutes before flipping to cook the other side.

In one of my classes yesterday we spent an hour talking about a topic that wasn’t the planned topic for the day. Not even really a topic but a broad conversation that covers so many areas.
People want quick fixes. They’ll listen to their neighbor or friend who lost weight doing keto or doing x other stupid diet before they’ll listen to someone who’s been trained formally in nutrition. They’ll listen to a doctor (whose hard work I’m NOT dismissing but is not in nutrition) over an RD because of the title. They’ll listen to some rando on the Internet (which I am to the majority of you!!) before going to see someone.
Health isn’t short term. People don’t like what science backs up because its not a cleanse or a diet. Aka to make a healthy habit you can’t just change something for a week or 2 and expect to be good forever on it. If you want sustainable change it has to be just that- sustainable.
Health is also individual, so a lot of the evidence based research points to inconclusive results. That’s why you need to work with someone who knows the field and work with yourself and work with your body to find what makes YOU individually function optimally. There is no quick fix and that’s what makes nutrition a “hard sell.”
People don’t want to hear this, so they’ll grasp onto the latest trendy juice fad or diet idea and hope that it will somehow defy science and be a cure all. But dat ain’t gonnn work 🤷🏼♀️.
Have a lottttttt of thoughts on this subject (as I do with everything lol UGH) but here’s my food anyways ➡️ [ banana eggs!! 1 large mashed banana with 2 tbsp ground flax, 1/2 cup egg whites, cinnamon, and vanilla scrambled like eggs and topped with whatevaaaa toppings ur little heart desires (I did @georgiagrinders cinnamon vanilla pecan peanut butter, bloobs, and freeze dried strawbs) ]
Seriously the best way to stretch four eggs!! At least once a week I throw together a quiche for breakfast or a nice light dinner.
1 cup half+half
1 1/2 cups grated cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
any other chopped meat or veggies you like, great way to use up leftovers. My favorite is a cup of chopped raw spinach, chopped onion and maybe some pre-cooked grease drained meat like sausage or bacon. Not eating meat, no problem, you won’t even miss it.
Pour into one ready-made piecrust (NOT PILLSBURY..YUK)
bake in preheated to 375 oven for about 47 minutes or until center is set but not overcooked.
quiche is so versatile and easy and delicious. Four eggs would barely feed two people in my house, but baked into a quiche you can go a couple of meals😉 #janetmetzger#quiche#easybreakfast#eggs#cheese#morningsinthekitchen#cooking#incredibleedibleegg
