Yesterday I shared that I’ve started to meal plan for the week. This has been working really well for me. I don’t know about you but I hate having to come up with what to make for dinner. I think about it randomly all day long. When I should be doing other things I’m thinking about what I have in my fridge, in pantry and what I can come up with. I’ve found that my mind doesn’t really wonder anymore because I’ve got it planned. I’m also doing less mindless eating because I have snacks planned out as well. So it’s working really well for me.
One of the foods that I keep on hand for breakfast is eggs. I never liked eggs growing up. I started eating them as an adult only because I was avoiding carbs in the morning and needed protein. I still didn’t like them. So I began to dress them up with salsa and cheese and I was able to eat them. It wasn’t until one of my clients brought me in some fresh eggs that I actually started to like them.Now these eggs are incredible! So much flavor and an almost creamy taste. And so colorful! The yolks are the most vibrant yellow. But I still can’t eat the same thing over and over without getting tired of it. So the other morning I was rushing to get ready for work and make breakfast and get to work on time. I didn’t have much food in my fridge and in a split second I come up with pizza eggs.
They’re super simple to make and taste just like pizza. And they’re quick!
makes one serving
2 Farm fresh eggs
fresh baby spinach
shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper
1. Heat a small skillet on medium heat and melt a Tablespoon of clarified butter in it.
2. Add your eggs to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
3. Add spinach to the pan. Spread pizza sauce over cooking eggs. Sprinkle eggs and spinach with garlic powder and dried oregano. Top with cheese and cook 1 more minute.
Feel free to add other toppings like fresh veggies. (I would probably sauté them for a few minutes before cooking the eggs.) This breakfast fits perfectly in the all 3 phases of the South Beach Diet and is carb free. These eggs kept me full until lunchtime. Which is huge because I usually need a small snack to keep my blood sugar even which helps me stay in a good mood. Hungry Mandi= Mean Mindi
I hope you give this recipe a try and please let me know what you think!
