I adore a veggie omelet, which is really a ton a veggies with a tiny bit of egg. Try sauteeing a 1/4 of a small sweet onion and a couple of mushrooms. Toss in a cup or so of fresh spinach. As it wilts, add 3 eggs beaten with milk, salt, pepper & fresh basil. Sometimes, I add a couple tsp. of feta cheese. This serves DH & I. We eat it with dry wheat toast.
The main idea is to have a skillet of whatever veggies you like, held together with "some" egg.
I am so accustomed to this that I do a double take when I go to a diner and get a big ol' greasy glob of cheese & egg for breakfast. Euww...
A typical breakfast for me is, 6 eggs fried runny sunnyside up cooked in bacon grease served over 2 big bisquits with sausage gravey slathered over them. It is healthy because it put's a smile on my face and gets me ready for the busy day.
Quote:Now you sound like my Grandpa...he used to eat like that.
He never got fat because he got up before daylight so he could be out in the fields working when the sun came up...my Grandma would make what we would consider supper for lunch. My Grandpa would come in from the field around noon...eat and take about a 1 hour nap then get back out to the fields. He didn't come back to the house until the sun went down and my Grandma would heat up small plate of food leftover from lunch and he would go on to bed.
Problem is most of us don't work like that anymore.
