A Garden Breakfast

I am obsessed with breakfast!  I know, I know, it is the most important meal of the day! Of course it is, however, I have found that it is more than that to me.  Since I began my weight loss journey a few years ago, I find myself with breakfast as the largest meal of my day!  And guess what?  It keeps the weight off!  At least it does for this silver haired middle-aged goddess!

I fluctuate my breakfast days – oatmeal one day, egg beaters the next, and so on and so forth.  I try to make my egg days more than just about the eggs.  Nothing dull and boring here. I have that garden out back and it has supplied me with numerous ingredients to make my breakfasts special.

I use 3/4 cup of egg beaters (Weight Watchers Points Plus Points = 3) and add whatever I have in the house or garden… mushrooms, kale, long onions, zucchini, tomatoes – whatever vegetable you like, add it.  I only count the points values of things with points: eggs, meat, cheese, etc.  I do not count the points values of fruits or vegetables.  This keeps me eating more of them and less of the other stuff that packs the pounds on.

I chop the kale quite fine so that it binds with the eggs.  I find it helps to thicken the eggs and hold them together with the other vegetables.

Chop all the vegetables and put them in your non-stick cooking pan.  I use Pam with olive oil as it adds a special taste to the eggs and makes it easier to cook the eggs with no sticking.

Add the egg beaters to the mixture and cook slowly over a medium flame.  Cook it until the vegetables are done the way you like.  I like my eggs to be cooked through, not runny.

Put your finished eggs on a plate and serve it immediately.  There is actually enough here for two servings if you wish.  Add some fruit to your plate and you are ready for another spectacular day!  Enjoy!
