Veggies for Breakfast! Why Not?
There are times when I do not necessarily want scrambled eggs, fruit, oatmeal or cereal grains for breakfast. And since I am in the process of eliminating or at least limiting wheat and wheat products in my diet, that leaves out pancakes or toast. These are the times when..hey..I just long for something “green” to start the day. And why not? I LOVE vegetables and starting the day with them is a light, bright and tasty way for me to go. This morning was one of those mornings, and oddly enough, what I longed for was the slightly crunchy, mildly bitter taste of brussels sprouts.
Alone, they would not have been enough of an energy source with which to start my day. But with a little grated cheddar, and a hard boiled egg…it was just terrific. And incredibly simple. Here it is!
6-7 brussels sprout rinsed and cut in half, a small wedge of cheddar cheese, dried garlic powder, 1-2 small cocktail tomatoes seeded and chopped, butter, salt and pepper and if desired, 1 hard-boiled egg.
Simmer the halved brussels sprouts in water until tender. Drain well, and add a small pad of butter while still hot, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste, add chopped tomato, mix, and grate cheddar cheese over the top. A hard boiled egg, cut in wedges add extra protein (and grounding).
Simple, delicious…light but sustaining as you rush out the door.
We are talking REAL FOOD here!
***Note: I am at this time, in the processing of “lightening up” to loose some weight and maintain a healthy blood sugar and energy level. Over a period of time, I am finding success with this by limiting my intake of wheat (mostly genetically modified in this country USA), corn products (also genetically modified in this country) and of course all processed and packaged foods (except certain canned items like tomatoes and broths). I wish you success in maintaining excellent health as well by cooking with the freshest foods you can find and in their whole and natural state before cooking..in your own kitchen and at your own stove. And of course…with creativity and imagination, which is what SENSUOUS and delicious cooking is all about!
