Breakfast Any Time of the Day

I love eggs!

I love eating them scrambled, fried, baked and especially for omelettes. Today’s omelette recipe, Green Veggie Eggs, consisted of:

  • three eggs (not counting the cholesterol today, okay?)
  • kale
  • spinach
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  • cilantro
  • avocado (1/2 of a VERY small avocado)

Breakfast is good anytime of the day, early with the sunrise…

…brunch, lunch, afternoon meal, or at night. Breakfast, or “break fast”, makes the perfect meal after several hours of not eating. Get it? Break fast. You break a fast every morning. If you ate dinner at 6:00 pm yesterday and ate breakfast at 6:00 am this morning, you ended a twelve-hour fast at 6:00 am.

This blog post is not intended to encourage you to go on a fast (though occasional fasts have been known through the centuries to be a helpful thing for our bodies). It is, however, intended to share vegetable varieties you can include in your breakfasts.

Last week I attended a presentation at Hannon Chiropractic about a purification program that promotes purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy body and weight. The program, which I decided to do, starts off with a vegetable and fruit plan. Let me mention that I love to eat veggies with and in my eggs. Not only do I like eggs. I like to eat toast with my eggs. I failed to hear any mention of bread being included in the plan, however. Since I have bread on hand today, I figured it would be a good thing to not waste my groceries. So today’s Green Veggie Eggs was immensely enjoyed with toast – and honey (another of my foodie weaknesses, sweets). Though the purification program doesn’t include eggs at first, it does allow plenty of vegetables. It’s a good thing because I absolutely love vegetables – cooked the southern way.

Well, it looks like I’ll be experiencing sweet, wheat, and egg withdrawals for the first part of the plan for getting on the right track for maintaining a healthy body and weight. But I assure you that I believe in eating eggs for protein and that I plan to include them in my near-future diet maintenance plan.

  1. I like a higher protein breakfast for most mornings. Yesterday I sautéed three large mushrooms in olive oil, added two eggs on top, then just poked them enough for the yolks to break. Once flipped over, I slid the panful onto my dish and added plenty of grated mozzarella cheese on top. Sometimes I put Chili Verde (green) salsa on top as well. Yumm.

    My aim is to eat two-thirds protein to one-third carbs and/or fats per meal. That way I can maintain lower carb counts and keep the glucose count down as well.

      Oooh, Rusty, I need to try that. Sounds really good!

  2. I love eggs, too. There are very few egg dishes that I don’t like. I look forward to your future egg dishes. You know what my favorte doctor recommended as a great accompaniment to green eggs? Ham, of course. His name was Suess.

    I’ll have to add ham to the green eggs next time! LOL
