I just found this recipe the other day and tried it out. It's definitely a winner! It also combines vitamins ABCDE+K. Not to shabby.
The Ultimate Breakfast
Using a combination of eggs and egg whites helps keep the saturated fat content down without sacrifing a rich, satisfying flavor.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
1 Haas avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 large eggs plus 4 large egg whites
¼ cup fortified low-fat milk
½ teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
3 tablespoons canola oil
½ cup minced onion
1 small jalapeno pepper (ribs and seeds discarded), minced
2 cups fresh baby spinach, shredded
1 bunch chives, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese
Sliced mango and kiwi serving
This breakfast omelet combines vitmains ABCDE+K
Milk, eggs, and cheese lend vitamins A and D, while kiwi and mango offer vitamins C and E. Mango also brings in vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, as does the spinach (the leafy green also throws vitamin K into the mix). Not to be left out, avocado represents the B family and provides yet more K.
What's your ultimate breakfast?
God, I LOVE breakfast, Sarah -- so asking me what's my ultimate breakfast is tough.
First, I love eggs. So I guess I'd start with an eggwhite omelet with two whole eggs, some low-fat cheese and maybe some herbs.
I usually eat eggs alongside a bowl of oat bran or oatmeal, sprinkled with cinnamon and amped up with some chocolate whey protein and frozen cherries or blueberries for a little sweetness. That's usually my staple on mornings when I have the luxury of time to prepare breakfast.
If I'm in the mood for cold cereal, I'll usually have my own homemade granola (with some frozen fruit added or sometimes I add the choco whey to the milk) or Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Cereal and a slice of Ezekiel 4:9 Bread with almond, peanut or soy butter.
Basically, I like pretty much anything for breakfast, and make it my biggest meal.
