{#abcblogging} E is for Eggs

E is for Eggs.

Eggs are good for you. Actually, quite good for you. They are the second most complete food, right behind momma's milk.

A couple of years ago, My Sweetie and I began cutting out a lot of carbs from our diet, which meant completely changing our breakfasts. And because we didn't want sausage and yogurt everyday, this meant eating more eggs.

Trying to do the same thing and need some ideas? Here were some of my breakfasts this last week....

Scrambled eggs with cheese.

Now I am pretty lazy when it comes to scrambled eggs. I put a little butter in the pan, let it melt, and then crack the eggs directly into the pan. Sometimes as I am mixing I add a splash of milk, sometimes not.

On the mornings when I know I am working out or have a longer time until lunch, I will add a little bit of carbs - here is it a quarter of a bagel with some cream cheese.

Another morning it was a little bit of bacon. One of the girls fried up a few pieces and then I scrambled the eggs in the the bacon grease. SO yummy.

These are called pizza-leftover-veggie eggs. We always have homemade pizza on Fridays so on Saturday or Sunday I saute the leftover onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, and whatever other veggies I might have. I then crack my eggs in when they are getting soft and turn it into a veggie scramble. If there is leftover sausage from the pizza that goes in too.

Leftovers do great in scrambles.....baked potatoes cut into pieces, steamed broccoli, sauteed veggies, top the scramble with cheese and you are in business.

Corn tortillas are good in the morning too.

And go perfect with Huevos Rancheros.

I fry eggs in butter and after heating the tortilla, put the eggs on top followed by salsa and cheese.

Flour tortillas are good for breakfast burritos - in the summer I put spinach, tomato and avocado in them.

Now I must say that after eating eggs almost every day for the last three years I am noticing a slight intolerance. And it is very mild - after I eat an egg, especially the yolk, my tongue is tingly for a few minutes. So I am mixing up my breakfasts with yogurt, a cheese stick, or if I have more time -sausage and potatoes, and trying to not eat eggs every single day.

I challenge you to change up your breakfasts - breakfasts are very important! So try some new quick breakfasts this week and if you have any other protein-strong breakfasts, I'd love to hear about them!
