I certainly didn’t miss the ham in my breakfast dish. And, thinking about it, Dr. Seuss would also approve. You see, I went with a couple of cage-free eggs and made a delightful and creamy scrabble with same. In order to get the green contrast, I used up leftover kale/parsley pesto from a previous meal.Continue reading “GREEN EGGS WITHOUT THE HAM”
Wanted a quick, easy, and satisfying dish for lunch. Decided on hard-boiled eggs on a bed of garlic asparagus. Paired same with servings of summer’s sweet/juicy tomatoes and creamy avocado. Made sure to sprinkle with black pepper and pinch of salt. With a few crispy whole-wheat crackers (not in pic) on side, lunch was served.
Decided to place my staple breakfast dish (oatmeal) on a hiatus and went with eggs. These were done in an omelet form. For the filling, I went a tad out of the box and reached for salsa in a jar. Shh!!……never bought the chips. It was deliberate Love me some salsa in my omelet. ServedContinue reading “OMELET WITH SALSA FILLING”
It was quite a filling lunch this afternoon. Paired some hard-boiled eggs with warm sardines and onions along with nature’s butter (avocado). Served same on a bed of garlic-flavored asparagus spears. Added a few whole grain crackers on the side (not in pic). I was happy and satiated.
I admit; sometimes I have a ‘sweet-tooth’. Wanted to find somewhat of a healthy way to enjoy the sweet side of things without feeling guilty. Made my staple beet/carrot drink to last me throughout the week. Hence, I reserved the pulp of this refreshing combination drink. I reckon carrot/beet cake was on my mind asContinue reading “BEET/CARROT BROWNIE #PULP GOODNESS”
Funny how a particular dish can bring back a flood of memories. This one is quite innocent and pure. It involves my days as a Sitter. One of my favorite tasks; perhaps, I shouldn’t call it task, because I enjoyed reading to the tiny tots, it didn’t feel like work. One of the books wasContinue reading “#GREEN EGGS WITHOUT THE HAM – DR. SEUSS WOULD’VE APPROVED”
I tried to strike a balance with this morning’s meal. I opted to include a little sauteed kale for extra nutrients for the day. I couldn’t resist. So, I decided to include the last bits of ham from past Christmas in my scrambled eggs. That move made such a difference with each creamy fork bitesContinue reading “EGGS AND HAM WITH GREENS”
Breakfast was a protein and fiber-packed one. With a couple of beaten eggs, left-over vegetables (broccoli, asparagus) and fresh spinach, parsley, and tomatoes, I was on my way to a satisfying affair. It was like having mini quiches in cup-cake format. Assorted vegetables were added to egg batter. I made sure to season with aContinue reading “PROTEIN/FIBERS IN CUP CAKE FORM #MINI QUICHES”
Breakfast was quite a protein-packed affair. I was in the mood for something super-filling and nutritious. All roads led me to my handy cast iron skillet. It has been sometime since I last used. With eggs sitting at room temperature, I had a perfect dish in my mind. Decided to make a frittata. I loveContinue reading “FRITTATA WITH A TWIST #RITZ CRACKERS”
Asparagus has been around the block for hundreds of years. It is said that this super food has aphrodisiac effects; and for me, that’s music to my ears. The fact is that nutritionists have stated that these perennial vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, folate, fibers, vitamins, and diuretic effects and more nutritious properties that areContinue reading “PROTEIN MEETS AN APHRODISIAC-LIKE VEGGIE #SEARED ASPARAGUS AND EGGS”
