Breakfast Tortilla

Breakfast Tortilla!
Felt like spicing things up this morning for breakfast and made my version of a breakfast burrito into a tortilla.
Ingredients
Potatoes
Yellow Bell Pepper (you can use any color)
Onion
Mushrooms
Chicken
Egg Whites
I diced and cooked the potatoes for few minutes in pan with a little olive oil. Add diced bell pepper, mushrooms, and onions cook for a few minutes. My quantities are thrown in to liking and tasting, no true measuring going on. Add shredded chicken (I used some left over rotisserie chicken). I put all cooked ingredients to the side and scrambled my egg whites. After, scrambled throw the cooked ingredients back into the same pan. Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute. Fill with mixture, drizzle with mexican cheese, and green mild salsa. Disfrutar!

Birds Nest Breakfast Cups

Good Morning World! Here’s an easy breakfast idea to kick start the day and the best part of it all is any that are left over, you can store in a container and eat tomorrow. Genius! These hash brown breakfast cups with egg whites and veggies of your choice are tasty and easy.
Ingredients
1 24 oz bag of shredded hash browns
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/3 cup of mozzarella (or cheese of choice)
2 tsp salt & pepper
You can choose toppings of choice I added finely diced onion, bell pepper, and a few bacon bits. First, mix hash browns, oil, cheese, and salt & pepper. Divide amongst greased muffin tin. Bake hash browns at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until toasty. Once they are finished, take them out and lower the temperature to 350 degrees. I pour egg whites into my hash brown next or you can crack and egg into each individual one. Then top with veggies and sprinkle with cheese. Pop back in oven and bake at 350 degrees for an additional 15 minutes our until egg are cooked through. Pull out oven and serve!

Fuel Your Day

Kick off your morning with a healthy breakfast to get the fuel you need to have a kick ass day! See, I don’t always eat unhealthy I have my splurge moments throughout the week but most of the time I eat pretty clean 😉 egg whites with green bell pepper and shallots, sliced heirloom tomato with a thin slice of fresh mozzarella, and crunchy hash browns. Just eat small meals all day and control your portions. Keep the metabolism burning and burning and burning the calories!

Protein Breakfast

After a nice workout I felt guilty eating anything other than a healthy breakfast. So, with the ingredients that were already in the fridge I threw together a protein packed breakfast with eggs whites, mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion, spinach, red new potatoes, and chicken! I was a too rushed to take the time to make an omelette so I sauteed the mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion, and spinach in pan. Then, I cut up some left over chicken from last night and threw into the pan. I placed 4 small red new potatoes in the microwave in a ziploc for 3 minutes until soft and cut up and threw into the pan with the rest of the ingredients. Wa-La! Breakfast of Champions! 🙂

BBQ Salmon & CousCous

I have previously posted a BBQ Salmon dish but this one is prepared slightly different and Mmmmmm Mmmmmmm Good! Working with what was in the fridge and pantry, so I didn’t have to make a special trip to the supermarket, this is what I prepared…
Ingredients
CousCous (roasted garlic & olive oil)
Salmon
BBQ Sauce
Salt & Pepper

Fruit Salsa Ingredients
Mango
Cherries
Apricot
Jalapeno
Onion
Red Bell Pepper
These were all items in my fridge. So, to prepare the fruit salsa I diced some cherries, mango, apricot, jalapeno, onion, & red bell pepper and squeezed fresh lemon juice on top. I took the salmon (salt & pepper) and placed in an already hot skillet with olive oil to sear on both sides. Once seared on both sides brush bbq sauce across top of salmon and place in 350 degree oven in the pan they were seared in for 10min (cook to your liking). I took the shortcut on the couscous and boiled it for 5min. Place couscous on plate put bbq salmon on top of couscous add fruit salsa and ENJOY!
