Better Breakfast

As I mentioned here, most breakfast cereals are garbage and I usually opt for some type of veggie egg scramble in the mornings. But everyone likes a little variety and once in a while I crave something sweet to start my day. So I eat this. It takes less than a minute to prepare, is loaded with protein to power you through your day, heart healthy omega 3s that help your skin glow, and probiotics and fiber to keep your digestive system moving along. Also, it’s delicious. Happy Health!

Quick and Easy Healthy Breakfast

My mornings are insane. I’m usually out the door by 6:30 to train a client, and I am not a morning person. Tying my shoes is a difficult enough task for me in the a.m., never mind assembling a nutritious breakfast. And by the way, cereal is not a nutritious breakfast. Most are overly loaded with carbs, sugars and processed grains and contain little protein.

Scrambled eggs and veggies are a great option, but can take more time than pouring a bowl of cereal or throwing a pop tart in the toaster. So to make sure I eat a healthy breakfast throughout the week, I prepare my eggs on Sunday evening, and just ladle out what I need into a heated pan each day. Easy peasy healthy breakfast in less than five minutes. And this is a great way to get a serving or two of veggies into your body first thing in the morning.

My basic recipe is two whites for every whole egg, and some veggies and protein. Occasionally I will slice up some avocado for the side.

This week I threw together:

12 eggs (4 whole eggs with 8 egg whites)

½ package Soyrizo (ground turkey sautéed in garlic and onion would work fine too)

2 small tomatoes, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1 clove chopped garlic

2-3 tbsp. salsa

handful or 2 shredded light cheese ( I used soy cheese but you can use whatever kind you like)

½ cup or so chopped frozen spinach

pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper

dash cayenne pepper

dash paprika

 

I put everything into a Tupperware container and just scramble what I need each day.

It looks kinda gross to begin:

Egg Mix

But becomes a delicious, beautiful, healthy breakfast:

Eggs from Mix

This was the combo I used this week, but I’ve also thrown in kale, sliced turkey, tofu, turkey bacon, mushrooms, chopped Brussels sprouts, broccoli, scallions etc. Whatever I have in the fridge. Be creative! Happy Health!
