Store brought scotch eggs are stuffed with processed meats, high in salt and the breadcrumbs just add an excessive amount of carbs, but as always, Primal Living are always on top of their game and produced an incredible recipe for you scotch egg loves (Steve is definitely one of them!). Our recipe contains hard boiled eggs and lean mince pork which is high in protein to meet your daily intake, we season with salt and pepper but you could season the meat how you want.

The best thing about this recipe is that it incorporates other recipes within our collection; primal mayonnaise and primal ketchup so this snack remains as healthy as possible, store brought ketchup is high in sugar while mayonnaise is high in fat.
4. Roasted Nuts 🌰
These are pheromonal to have, especially if you have chosen to have a few drinks with your Christmas dinner. The range of nuts bring in different and unique flavors themselves once roast and only take 30 minutes; or roughly one episode of a show. After roasting the nuts, the possibilities are endless to what you want to add or season them with. We enjoy adding dark chocolate since it gives that sweet and salted mix. As for seasoning, we have listed the obvious salt and pepper along with chili powder, curry powder or grounded cumin.
5. Kale Chips 🥬
Often the first thing people think of when they hear “chips” are potatoes, carbs, starch and salt. However we have found an alternative, possibly tastier, solution if you are looking to replace chips to snack on. With a preparation time of only 2 minutes, the secret behind our chips is replacing the potatoes with Kale! Unusual you might say but when they are roasted, the crispy texture is one identical to traditional chip. This is one to get children involved so you could kick your feet up for half an hour!
