Make your morning egg-stra special!
In my last post I told you all about the amazing benefits of eggs. Since they are so cheap and easy to get there is no excuse not to eat them. In case you are at a loss for what to make, here is a fantastic healthy recipe that will start your day in a great way.
Start with two eggs and three to four egg whites. You can either separate the eggs to get the whites, or buy a container of the egg whites that are found at your grocery store near the eggs. Then pick out any kind of veggies that you like to eat – I particularly like mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and corn. Cut those all into bite sized pieces. If you really like cheese you can cut a few thin slices of your favorites too! You can add a few slices of ham or sausage as well if you must have meat but this works great as just a veggie dish. Pick out your favorite herbs – basil, cilantro, rosemary….. Now – if you are particularly good at making omelet’s then pour the eggs in the pan and place the veggies on the set egg. I, however, am not good at making omelet’s, nor do I have the time and patience to watch it and flip it perfectly, so I just mix it all together in one big easy scramble! Throw it all into the fry pan and mix around until it’s all set.
Throw it on a plate and have a nice leisurely breakfast or put it between two slices of whole wheat bread for a to-go sandwich. This gets in a serving or two of veggies, your protein, and a whole lot of vitamins and minerals. You will have energy all day!
