I've recently gotten much more involved in fitness and nutrition. I've always been very interested but never fully delved in. I love to learn about all the ways nutrients help with our bodies functions and the effects they have on us. I also like to find healthy foods to eat that aren't high in calories, fats or sodium. Sodium is a hard one to avoid!
Breakfast is my favorite meal and I've had to cut out most of my favs like sugary cereals, giant bagels & muffins, and pop-tarts. No more of that!
I found a delicious simply morning recipe that's also quick for those of us on the go!
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms, broken up into smaller pieces
- Small handful of fresh spinach leaves
- 2-3 Tbsp of diced onion (I use the Birds Eye frozen chopped onion, so much easier! lol)
- Small slice of muenster cheese (I used Sara Lee custom slices) or whatever you like(optional)
- Olive oil cooking spray
I should have taken pictures while I cooked this but it's difficult when there's usually an 8 month old sitting on my hip at all times :P
First off, I spray some cooking spray in a small pan and warm it up for about 5 minutes, then throw in the onion and mushrooms and let it simmer for 5-7 mins or until the onions are soft. Then I put in the spinach and cook until they start to wilt.
Remove the veggies from the pan and set on a plate.
Spray a tiny bit more cooking spray if necessary and add the egg whites. Dont flip or mess with them, just leave them until they are pretty well cooked on the bottom, then lift up one side and tilt the pan so the runny part on top goes underneath. Continue this and cook until the top is thoroughly cooked.
This is when I add the cheese. Could probably cut down the cals & fat even more if I left it off but I have a major love for cheese so it's necessary. I used muenster cheese and it's delicious!
Put veggie mixture on top of cheese and fold egg in half still in pan. Let sit on low a couple minutes until cheese melts.
And all of this for the specific ingredients I used is 111 calories! Keeps me full all morning!
Hope you enjoy! Give me some feedback if you try it out!
Have a great Friday everyone!
