3 Easy Egg Recipes



Eggs are one of the most versatile breakfast items and a must-have for 21-day fix (in fact, they are on my top 10 list of grocery items you need for 21-day fix). Here are a few very simple, quick egg combinations that made a delicious breakfast (or even breakfast for dinner!)


RECIPE 1: Spinach & Feta Egg Whites
Fix Portions: 1 Red, 1 Green, 1 Blue
This is my go-to breakfast. Delicious by itself, or wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla (add 1 yellow serving)

Ingredients
·         1/3 cup egg whites
·         1 green container spinach
·         1 blue container feta
·         Garlic powder
·         Ground nutmeg
·         1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Directions
1.      In EVOO, sautéed spinach until wilted. Season with garlic powder and a dash of nutmeg.
2.      Add egg whites and feta to pan
3.      Cook over medium-low heat until cooked through (5 minutes or less)


RECIPE 2: "Lovely" Eggs and Toast
Fix Portions: ½ Red, 1 Yellow

Ingredients
·         1 egg
·         1 slice whole wheat toast

Directions
1.      Using a cookie cutter, cut a hole in the center of your bread (I make mine heart shaped)
2.      Place bread in a skillet (or griddle) over medium heat
3.      Crack the egg inside the hole in the bread
4.      Once the egg is about set and the toast is browned on the bottom, flip and cook until lightly browned on the other side


RECIPE 3: Everything Omelet
Fix Portions: 2 Red, 1 Green, 1 Blue

Ingredients
·         2 eggs
·         3 slices low sodium deli ham, diced
·         2 slices cooked turkey bacon, chopped
·         1 blue container cheese of choice (I like shredded sharp cheddar)
·         1 green container vegetables of choice (mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, spinach, jalapenos, etc.)
·         1 tbsp water
·         1 tsp EVOO
·         Pepper
·         Garlic powder

Directions
1.      Crack eggs and whisk with water, pepper, and garlic powder
2.      Heat EVOO in pan over medium heat
3.      Add eggs
4.      Add vegetables, proteins, and cheese
5.      When the edges look about set, fold one side over to form an omelet. Allow to finish cooking through before serving
