Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day, especially on the weekends when I have time to eat something different than the Monday-Friday oatmeal and peanut butter. Sometimes this means going out to brunch, but when I'm not in the mood to indulge or spend money/time at brunch, I have a great go-to breakfast sammie to make at home.
It's healthy, full of flavor, and packed with a healthy balance of all three macronutrients to keep you full all morning long.
Ingredients (for one sandwich)
1 whole wheat english muffin
1 heaping cup of spinach
1/3 of an avocado- mashed
Salsa, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper
First, turn the oven to high broil. Then, in a medium sauté pan, spray cooking spray and add spinach. Cook until wilted down and remove spinach to a separate plate. In this same pan, crack the eggs, cover pan, and simmer on low for about 3-5 minutes. Touch the yolk to see how soft/hard it is and stop cooking when it is to your preference.
While eggs are cooking, cut english muffin in two halves and broil in the oven for a couple minutes until the top is slightly browned. Remove from oven, add mashed avocado, spinach, and one egg on each half. Top with ingredients of your choice. I love mine topped with medium heat salsa, a dash of red pepper flakes and lots of salt and pepper!
Other great toppings:
Slice of tomato
Red pepper jelly
Reduced fat cheese
Making breakfast at home on the weekends saves you lots of time (to go workout!!) and lots of calories. Next time you're thinking of going out to eat, try to instead invite friends over to make breakfast at your apartment/house. It will be more social and will leave your body feeling much better.
