Ahhhh, breakfast!

Standard

A lot of people like to skip breakfast, or to grab a doughnut or something sweet and quick.  I try to set aside time to enjoy a healthful breakfast, as I find that it helps set the pace for the rest of the day.  When I eat breakfast, I like to maximize my nutrition so that I can accomplish more.  I think of it in terms of fuel…sort of like gasoline for the car.

I have only recently introduced eggs and dairy back into my diet in small quantities.  I went for years without eating those things, and I seldom do now…with the exception of breakfast.  I enjoy one hard-poached egg for breakfast a few times a week now.  When I get breakfast at Lauretta Jean’s, a great place down the street from where we live, I have a poached egg on a biscuit with shaved brussels sprouts on top.  I made my homemade version of that yesterday.  Biscuits have white flour in them, so I rarely eat them…but Lauretta Jean’s tests the self-restraint.

Another favorite breakfast is a hard poached egg on a bed of greens.  This morning’s was a mix of turnip, collard and mustard greens gently tossed in a little rice vinegar and Aardvark hot sauce.  I also like lots of black pepper on my eggs.   I had two pieces of Morningstar Farms veggie bacon on the side.  All this, under 200 calories!

Top that off with a cup of black dark French roast, and I’m good to go!
