Hey Guys!

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!

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!
