Breathe…breathe again…I need to do this more. I need to slow down and breathe and let the air flow around and from me and let myself live in that moment more. I need to appreciate that time, the gift that is today. We have today and now and I know I don’t always give the day my full attention, sometimes the list of things gets in the way. The spontaneous and fun get forgotten. This fully counts towards food too.
I’m constantly impressed with others’ creativity, but then in the quick simple moments, I might whip up something that is easy, fresh, and perfectly satisfying. These veggie eggs are one of those moments.
We occasionally eat breakfast for dinner around here. I like the 10-grain pancake mix from WinCo or even better, making banana pancakes. But what I often dread about breakfast meals is the lack of savory and the heaviness of pancakes in your stomach. I like to make my own hash browns, they are good, but still heavy. Fruit salad, sure that counts, but it’s still not savory. So how do you incorporate some whole food eating into a breakfast meal?
Sometimes we eat eggs and this is one of those times. It’s a sometimes thing.
Sure I could whip up some regular scrambled eggs and call it good, but it really wouldn’t be as good as it could be. Here’s where I introduce you to veggie eggs. Sauté your veggies and then either 1) scramble your eggs separate and top with veggies OR 2) cook your eggs 1/2 way and then mix in sautéed veggies OR 3) pour your raw eggs on top of sautéed veggies and cook. It’s light, it’s good, and it’s savory. For spices, add a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder and you’re done.
I love how simple this is and how fresh it feels. I sauté with water almost 100% of the time and it cuts down the greasy heavy feeling as well. You have to watch that your veggies don’t burn in a water sauté as the water evaporates, just add more as needed until they are done. And as with a lot of recipes, this one can be added to or taken away from: carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli would be other great additions.
I hope you have a day full of living, full of slowing down and taking time to enjoy the little moments, and full of easy food preparations that are filling, whole, and healthy.
