Simple and Healthy Eggs

I have a few super, simple and healthy egg based meals that I keep on the cue so for those times I need to eat healthy, but making a healthy meal is the last thing I feel like doing when I get home.

Breakfast for dinner

As in scrambled eggs or omelettes (sometimes egg whites, sometimes not) mixed with onions, peppers, and mushrooms sautéed in EVOO and garlic, and topped with a few tablespoons of salsa. Sometimes (if I have some in the fridge) I add turkey sausage link (I like mine well done) into the mix. And on occasion I’ve been known to chop up a 1/3 of a raw sweet potato, sauté in garlic and EVOO and serve up healthy sweet potato home fries with my omelette!

A big salad with eggs

I hard boil up a half a dozen eggs at a time, peel and store them in a food container in the fridge. When I come home from a long day, I make a big old salad of mixed greens with lots of diced carrots, celery, sweet and spicy peppers (also part of my weekly food prep), chickpeas, onions and add a couple of boiled eggs chopped up. Then I drizzle EVOO and balsamic vinegar, squeeze fresh lemon wedge over said big salad and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

Eggs and smashed chickpeas on toast

Two hard boiled eggs sliced up + two generous tablespoons of chickpeas, smashed up in bowl with a fork, the juice from 1 or two fresh lemon wedges, cilantro (as much or as little as you like-and if you want, throw in some chopped Italian parsley) sea salt and pepper, and mix-up all the ingredients. Toast up a low carb slice of multigrain and cover with the eggs and smashed chickpeas – feel free to add raw onions and or a fat tomato slice!
