Despite the daily weekday chaos of family life, I love to take time for myself by preparing quick, fresh and healthy meals out of what I have in my fridge. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. And, I now try to take a bit of extra care to prepare my own “party on a plate” several mornings a week. My neighbor often shares her free range, organic eggs with us. I love to creatively use them for a variety of meals.
Sometimes, I simply baste the eggs and indulge dipping a bit of whole grain toast with avocado into the yolks. Other times, I use hard boiled eggs as a protein for a breakfast salad with fresh veggies on a bed of kale or spinach. On special days, I love to create a “bread-free BLT” with eggs, uncured bacon, basil, tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella. These colorful meals feel indulgent, but they take very little time to prepare.
Do you ever take a bit of “me time” to make a special meal for yourself? I highly recommend that you try it!
