As Mother’s Day approaches, I want to remember my Mom with a recipe that is perfect for Mother’s Day brunch and review some reassuring research about eggs, “Nature’s perfect protein”. First, the much-maligned egg has been vindicated (once again), this time by an Australian study just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Move over bagel, there’s a new schmear in town. This low-carb twist on the traditional “lox and bagel with cream cheese” has all the flavor, with none of the allergens and empty carbs. Just trade the bagel and cream cheese for crisp rice crackers and creamy avocado. The smoked salmon delivers ~15 grams of protein with a dose of essential fatty acids to reduce inflammation and create soft skin.
This modern take on the classic “hash” dishes up two servings of colorful veggies in a golden sauté that’s ready in minutes. Save time by prepping the onion and microwaving the potatoes the night before so they’re ready for the skillet when it’s time to cook. These potatoes are teeming with flavor, flavonoids and keep your blood sugar stable all morning long. This is something that could be made in a bigger batch on a Sunday afternoon for weekday mornings to come. Yum!
In this ideal breakfast for busy workday morning, two perfect “6-minute” soft-boiled eggs mingle with creamy avocado and chunky salsa on a bed of arugula. While you’re making tea and checking email, the eggs are boiling and in less than 15 minutes, you’ll devour 12 grams of protein and 2 servings of vegetables before you’re out the door!
Want to sail through the morning with solid energy, sustained focus and cruise into lunch without caving into the muffins someone left out?
Of course you do, and that’s why I’m sharing my favorite Savory, Protein-Powered Breakfasts that you can have ready in 15 minutes or less (while prepping school lunches and checking email)!
