The secret is out. I have a thing for eggs. I love all kinds of eggs: scrambled, sunny-side up, over-easy, poached, hard-boiled, etc., etc., etc. So much so, that at my last doctor’s check-up my cholesterol was apparently close to the high end of the range. At the time of that check-up, I wasn’t even 30! I mean, really?!? Apparently I have a lot of good cholesterol but also some bad. I was quite shocked but it didn’t really take me long to come to the conclusion that my two eggs per day breakfast routine might have something to do that number. So unfortunately, I have had to cut-back on my egg intake. What that means, however, is that when I do have eggs, I make sure it is worth my while. This Mediterranean scrambled eggs with spinach, tomato and feta cheese is definitely worth my while!
Just look at those vibrant colours.
“Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince, and Dine like a Pauper”. Ever heard of that phrase? In layman terms, it basically means that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eat well! Breakfast provides our bodies with the energy it needs to get through the day and helps our brain function. Ever written an exam or given a presentation on an empty stomach? Brain farts galore. I mean, I get it; it’s easy to skip breakfast during busy weekday mornings. But making a delicious and nutritious breakfast is easy and takes less than 10 minutes. That’s it!
Let me break it down.
Step 1: Saute the tomatoes and spinach until the spinach is wilted.
Step 2: Add the eggs and mix to scramble.
Step 3: Add the feta cheese and continue to cook.
Step 4: Season with salt and pepper.
That’s it! So, don’t hold back when it comes to breakfast. Go all out. Spiff up your breakfast with this combination of egg, spinach, tomato and feta cheese. It is a match made in heaven. It doesn’t just look fabulous on your plate, but it tastes fabulous! If you haven’t set aside time to prepare breakfast, then all you need to do is set your alarm a few itty bitty minutes earlier. Or just hit snooze one less time 🙂
