Healthy Quick Egg Breakfast

Today I have decided to restart my diet.  With the Thanksgiving Holiday finally over and all of my sweets (Cakes and Pies) are almost gone, I have decided to hit the restart button YET AGAIN.  This morning I am starting off with a really healthy breakfast using Mixed Greens, Mushrooms, Onions, and Turkey Sausage, and 2 Eggs.  This is a really wholesome and  healthy breakfast, and really gives a lot of energy to carry you thru the day.  Hope you enjoy this short video.



Spinch and Kale Power Pack Lunch

Today I was a little pressed for time on lunch and not really hungry, but I knew Lunch was not to be skipped.  I decided to throw some vegetables together to make a healthy lunch.  I was a little skeptical of this dish,  but BOY did it turn out to be Delicious.  Last week I was determined to go back on a Vegan 1 week diet, but that failed.  So now I have all of these frozen and fresh vegetables that need to be eaten ASAP.  The flavor of this dish is wonderful.  Try it and see what you think.

  • 4-5 Handfuls of Kale
  • 4-5 Handfuls of Spinach
  • 1/2 Bag of Green Giant Mediterranean Blend Veggies
  • 1/2 Bag of Green Giant Honey Roasted Sweet Corn
  • 1 tbsp of Chopped Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 C Water

Pour Olive Oil in a pot,  just enough to coat the bottom of the pan.  Once the pan is hot, add in your garlic and saute 1 min.  Add in Kale and Spinach, and let cook for 2-3 mins untill they shrink.  Add in Vegtables and Corn, and pour 1Cup of water in pot, and simmer for 20 mins.  Remove pot from stove and let cool off for 5 mins, and Enjoy.

I have been trying to stay on a Health Kick and make sure I eat the right foods.  I’ve researched a lot of different foods and kept coming across Quinoa and the wonderful benefits it offers your body.  Finally on yesterday I decided to purchase a box and see what all the hype was about.  I looked in my freezer and saw some frozen stir fry veggies, and then decided to make Quinoa Chicken Stir Fry….😋.  I must say after all of my negative thoughts, on this delicious grain, it was really, really good.  Here’s what I did:

  • Bag of Stir Fry Veggies
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Tyson Grilled Chicken Strips
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • Stir Fry Sauce (Any brand of your choice)

Cook Quinoa as suggested.

Heat Olive Oil in pan.  Sauté  garlic in pan for about 2 mins.  Add veggies to pan, and cook for 5-10 mins.  Next add onions, and chicken and cook for additional 5 mins.  Once the vegetables and chicken are cooked, pour in your stir fry sauce, and fry for 3 mins.  Remove from stove and stir in Quinoa , and enjoy.


My Low-Calorie Morning Breakfast: Green Eggs No Ham

WIN_20141021_085123So I had to share this delicious recipe that I made this morning. I always try to eat a healthy breakfast, but get tired of eating the same ol thing. This morning I decided to try something different. I have been reading a Blog called well she has a lot of creative ideas.  So this morning I decided to make my own version and I will call this Green Eggs No Ham😉.  My pictures are not all that great, (Must invest in better camera)

I used Spinach, Kale, Onions, Garlic, and Mushrooms and cooked this in a little bit of Olive Oil, with the top on the pot.  Once my greens had shrunk, and  were to my likening I cracked an egg on top, and covered for about 2-3 mins, to get that poached egg effect.  This is a must try, the garlic and onions give this dish a wonderful flavor.
