My nutritionist tells me that I need to eat more in the morning so I am going to give it a try. This morning I came up with a very high protein, yummy new breakfast option that came in at 279 calories. I added 2 whole grain wasa crisps to round out my just under 400 calorie breakfast.
1/2 cup frozen mirepoix vegetables (celery, onions, peppers)
1/2 cup rinsed black beans
1 whole egg
1 egg white,
1 small chopped tomato
2 T. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
I cooked the vegetables, tomato and beans for about 5 minutes in a sprayed non-stick pan. In a bowl I whipped together the egg, egg white, and a bit of ground black pepper. I poured the eggs over the vegetables and stirred until the eggs were set then topped it all with 2 T cheese. It was yummy and should keep me going for several hours.
I wish I had taken a picture but I was hungry by the time I finished cooking so I didn't think of a picture until it was gone.
