Happy 2012! Time to get organized and healthy!
Why I do this, exactly, is still unknown; perhaps some crazy idea I formulated years ago and just never really questioned. This is not a resolution, well, not exactly since those never last anyway and I don’t make any promises to eat a certain way forever or have an organized house forever. I guess the new year is just a good time for me to cleanse of clutter and excess in order to make room for more clutter and excess in the new year. Sure, that sounds good to me. I mean it can’t hurt to lighten things up and think twice about healthy options from time to time. Right?
Besides, after eating nutritionally packed and balanced meals like this one for the last 4 days, all of my cabinets are now organized.
Coincidence? Maybe. Or, maybe I just have more time to clean my cabinets now that I’m not constantly dreaming up new frosting flavors. <shrug> But, don’t fret too much; I’m sure I’ll be back to decadent delights before too long…in moderation and therefore tasting even more delicious than ever, of course.
Breakfast of Champions
- tomato slices (any kind)
- salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil
- sprouted whole grain bread
- Butter, for toast (you may use plain Greek yogurt, if preferred)
- egg or egg white
- organic baby spinach leaves
- dash of hot sauce, if desired (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Place tomato slices on prepared baking sheet and drizzle on both sides of the tomatoes, the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in preheated oven for about 10 minutes, just to bring out the sweetness. Remove from oven.
Fry egg in a nonstick pan over medium low heat with your favorite spray, butter or oil, season to taste with salt and pepper and a tiny sprinkle of thyme too. Meanwhile, toast the bread and spread with butter or plain yogurt and top it with a few baby spinach leaves and a couple of the prepared tomato slices. Add the fried egg on top of the spinach. Add a dash of hot sauce on egg, if desired. Enjoy.
