Okay this is nerve-wracking. My first ever blog post!
I want to start off by saying THANK YOU for all of the positive feedback I received yesterday. I woke up with a smile on my face knowing that all of my hard work has paid off and I was already able to inspire some people. You have no idea how much a text, message, like, or share means and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!
So basically today is Christmas because I get to go back to the happiest place on earth (UD)!!!! I had a lot to pack and load up this morning and wanted to squeeze in a quick workout because it get’s me goin’. Besides breakfast, what gets me out of bed is knowing that I’m one workout away from a great mood and a kick-start to my day. I’m going to have a fitness segment later in my blog so heads up for that!
I decided to make one of my favorite breakfast recipes for you guys. What I love about this recipe is that you can be as creative as you want by working with whatever vegetables you have on hand; I had red peppers, zucchini, sweet potatoes, spinach, and an onion. I call this my "breakfast scramble":
Heat your pan to medium heat while you’re cutting up your veggies. I usually use a medium/large size pan because I like room to work with.
Chop up 1/2 a red pepper, 1/4 cup zucchini, ¼ cup onion, and 1/4 cup sweet potato.
I just found out how to properly cut an onion not too long ago so if you need a little tutorial take a gander: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs8cQ_tjsF8
Spray pan and add chopped vegetables. Sauté until the spinach is wilted and onions are translucent. You can add whatever spices you’d like, or just keep it as is. I’ve found that I love seasoning with chili powder, garlic powder, cumin (so good), and paprika. I’m honestly not sure how I came up with this spice combo but I’ve been using it for year and it’s never failed me.
Toast your piece of whole wheat bread, then add 3-4 egg whites and sauté until cooked all the way through.
(sorry not the prettiest pic there)
Top with ¼ avocado, 2 tablespoons of your desired salsa (I always go for the black bean and corn), 2 tablespoons plain non-fat greek yogurt, and however much shredded lettuce your heart desires. The lettuce is completely optional but I just loooove mass quantities of food (who’s with me), and the shredded lettuce gives it a fresh crunch that also increases the volume of the food.
I mean....YUM. I devoured this way too fast. Not too time consuming and so many different flavors blending together.
I'll post the recipe ingredient list and specific directions either later today or tomorrow. But for now, wish me luck moving in!!
Oh and my unsweetened iced tea was delish as well.
Have an amazing day and remember to stay FIT, not skinny ;)
