She walked into a grocery store and picked up bread, onions, peppercorn sausages, and tangy tomato and barbecue sauces.
‘It’s so fun and easy to do,’ she said as she cut up the onions and fried them on a pan. After, the sausages went in until they were ready to serve with a slice of bread and a side of sauces.
‘BRB . . . eating this every day for the next week,’ one woman commented.

‘The Bunnings snag is the best I’ve ever had,’ said another. ‘I can’t wait to try this at home.’
‘I can eat ten a day and still be under my calorie limit!’ said an excited woman. ‘This is the best news.’
Others weren’t quite so convinced.
‘Nothing beats a Bunnings sausage… this is not the same. And definitely not healthy.’
‘Onions are better cooked on beer,’ said another.
‘This is too expensive to make… would rather just buy the unhealthy version.’

The Australian health coach has also shared how to make an Oreo McFlurry at home with only three ingredients.
Hardgrave says her ‘fakeaway’ is only 200 calories and tastes just as good as the popular McDonald’s dessert menu item.
To make the McFlurry Bec begins by scooping 100 grams of no added sugar Peters vanilla ice cream into a cup.

She then adds two tablespoons of either sugar free icing sugar or vanilla protein powder into the cup.
Next Bec mixes the protein powder or icing sugar well until it has combined and the ice cream resembles a McDonald’s soft serve consistency.
‘It makes it such a nice and fluffy soft serve consistency,’ Bec said.
