I did a complete 180 with my breakfast this morning.
I went savory.
I went without oats.
It was deeeelicious.
You know I love eggs, and I’m definitely a person that can do eggs for breakfast. I can even do veggies for breakfast, if they are caught in between all of the egg. Many of you mentioned eating eggs + veggies for breakfast, and that it was extremely filling. It’s been too long since I’ve cooked eggs for breakfast.
I started by sautéing broccoli + kale in coconut oil.
Three farm fresh beauties were whisked with a little milk. About 1T of milk, is key to a nice fluffy omelet.
I couldn’t ditch carbs completely, so I included buckwheat millet bread + nut butter on the side. I can’t stop munching on this bread!
Ahhh, yum. I actually popped it in the toaster and it worked perfectly. This “bread” doesn’t fall apart at all, which I love. It’s dense + has great chew and a slight crunch from the chia seeds. The slices were swiped with chocolate chip cookie dough almond butter + salt + pepper cashew butter.
One savory + one sweet slice = perfection
We have stainless steel pans, and I have yet to learn how to make a true omelet with them. Too hard to flip! Instead, I just pour the egg overtop, cover the pan with foil and let it cook until the top is done. It works and is sort of like a fritatta.
When I poured the eggs over the veggies, I also threw in about 1/3c pre-cooked [in water] quinoa, leftover from dinner. I’ve never added anything like that to eggs before but it was fantastic. The extra little crunch was delicious. It also boosted the protein + fiber!
I also shaved a bit of organic sharp white cheddar on top, along with some s+p.
I used to like white quinoa best, but now I’m loving the red. It’s not quite as earthy and has a great crunch!
After taking the photos, I put a dollop of the salt + pepper cashew butter on top of the omelet-frittata [omeletatta?]. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was EXcellent!!! Better than expected.
Despite all the protein, fiber, fat, etc. I did need a little morning snack. I think this was a bit lower in calories than my typical breakfast, but I didn’t calculate it out. [I don’t typically calculate my meals, but have been doing it more with the breakfast experiments, to gauge things in a bit more detail.] Still loved it and will definitely work this into the mix more often!
Now…I have a question for you.
What should I do with all of these empty paint cans????
I feel terrible throwing them all away! I already have a few ideas, but want to see what you guys can come up with. I don’t expect to save all of them, but if I can divert any from the landfill it’s better than none!
