I think that it’s important to share meals.
This week, I got to share a fantastic breakfast with a friend of mine. Here’s to you.
We used what we had available at the time:
- 2 slices Jewish Rye Bread, toasted (30 grams carb)
- 1/4 C Hummus (8 grams carb)
- Spring Mix Lettuce
- Sliced Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 T Red Onion, chopped
- 3 T Chopped Green Bell Pepper
- 2 Whole Eggs
- 1 T Feta Cheese
- Sprinkle of Mint
Basically, we cooked the onions in a pan with a teeny bit of olive oil, then added the green peppers and last adding tomatoes. I removed these from heat and mixed the eggs together in a bowl. I added the eggs to the hot pan. When the scrambled eggs were mostly cooked, I added back in the vegetables.
After toasting the bread, I spread hummus on both sides. Then I layered the spring mix. The cooked egg/vegetable mixture went on top of the lettuce and I sprinkled it with feta cheese crumbles and mint. Sooooooo good!
In fact I ate the exact same thing the next morning except I added a few slices of cucumber, left my vegetables raw, and made my eggs over medium because I didn’t have as much time.
If you’re diabetic and trying to get up to 45 grams of carbohydrate, add a half of a medium/large fruit OR 1 cup of milk to drink.
