I have been re-learning many things about meal time that use to be second nature.This dish is one that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or a quick dinner. It's both tasty and nutritious.
4 - organic eggs (ours are courtesy of a neighbor on our road -
whose chickens run free around their property)
1/2 Cup grated smoked Gouda cheese
1 Cup of fresh organic spinach
2 garlic cloves chopped
few sprigs fresh organic oregano, parsley, basil
pinch of Himalayan sea salt
couple pinch of Tumeric
3-3 turns of the pepper mill
1 Tbsp. olive oil
beat eggs ...
add sea salt, pepper, turmeric
finely chop garlic cloves, fresh parsley, oregano, basil and grate cheese
add to egg mixture
in skillet add olive oil, garlic, spinach
saute over medium-low heat until spinach wilts
add egg mixture to skillet. Let egg cook set then turn over ... and fold in half
Looks good! ...But this is not all for you.
This is 2 servings, yes portion is key to keep this healthy.
It is amazing how we can created such a distorted view of what an actual portion is = we eat healthy but are not seeing any health benefits ~ as we are eating double , sometimes quadruple the amount of an actual portion. Do this with an item that you have 2 servings of a day and you are actually defeating healthy eating.
Add a bowl bowl of fresh strawberries and 1 slice whole grain bread sliced in half, for a nutritious meal. Don't worry the white strawberry topping ...
is fat free Greek yogurt!!
Taking the extra couple of minutes to plate and sit to actually enjoy your meal is key. It takes 15 minutes to 30 minutes for your brain to register that you are taking care of the hunger. So if you woof your meal down ~ your brain still thinks you're hungry = you'll eat what is easy to grab on the go.
If you DON'T butter your toast....
enjoy a little dollip of jam. Choose your topping wisely, I love butter but I really love and enjoy rose jam more. Having both would defeat the healthy eating lifestyle I'm striving for.
Of course a cup of tea .. I take mine in its natural state. This particular morning it was Casablanca tea from Mariage Frères
