Bored With Your Breakfast Eggs? Here’s a Versatile Recipe.

Bored With Your Breakfast Eggs? Here’s a Versatile Recipe.

Ever run out of breakfast ideas? Do you sometimes feel eggs can be boring? Do you think scrambled eggs are bland? Think a good tasting breakfast is too much hassle? Here are some simple food ideas where you don’t have to worry about the scale. I am not a nutritionist and these recipes are simply what I myself have for breakfast. I don’t measure my ingredients, as I cook by taste but I will try my best to give you a fair idea of how much or little I use.

I love to eat clean but I also love food with flavour. Who likes plain, bland, tasteless food? I have lost 15 Kgs over the last few years. It has been a slow and steady process, but I have been able to keep it off and have incorporated good food into a lifestyle change. I am a huge foodie and love experimenting with herbs and multiple ingredients to give my meals that extra zing. Eating the same thing every day gets pretty boring in my eyes, so I always need to switch things up for variety.

I do however love eggs and have experimented with different ways of making scrambled eggs. I don’t follow a specific diet or calorie intake, I simply choose to eat healthier options 80% of the time. The other 20% I l actually eat whatever I want! It’s a great balance and I don’t feel restricted whatsoever.

As I am an Australian raised Filipina with a Spanish and Chinese background, I have been exposed to a variety of flavours when it comes to food. Below I have shared different ways I make my scrambled eggs.  I basically use the same main ingredients and then add a couple of extra ingredients to give it a completely different flavour each time. This way I never get bored with my food.  Give it a try!

A Special Scrambled Egg Recipe

    The Main Ingredients:

    • 2 eggs per person (If you want a larger meal, I will only use egg whites for the extra eggs.)
    • Spinach, tomato, mushrooms, shallots, capsicum, any kind of vegetable I feel will work. Sometimes I add peas and corn.

    The Method:

    1. Sauté the vegetables using a teaspoon of coconut oil and a teaspoon of garlic. Sprinkle Mixed herbs (not too much, just a pinch)
    2. Beat the eggs and add a pinch of smoked paprika in the egg mixture. (feel free to add Himalayan salt for extra taste)
    3. Add the beaten eggs to the vegetables and sprinkle on some cracked pepper to taste.

    Now for some interesting variations –

    Mexican twist: add a couple of tablespoons of re-fried beans and sprinkle a pinch of turmeric.

    Asian twist: add a teaspoon of soy sauce to the vegetables before you add the eggs to the pan.

    Aussie twist: Sauté chopped bacon with vegetables. This can go well with spinach, mushrooms and sun dried tomato. Sprinkle with a hint of pink Himalayan salt to taste. Sometimes I might add some feta or parmesan cheese depending on my mood.

    Seafood twist: Add chopped smoked salmon at the very end to avoid overcooking it. Sometimes I add fresh smoked Salmon on the side as you can see in the above picture..

    It’s amazing what these different ingredients can do, to change the flavour. It really does feel like you are eating completely different meals. It’s quick and simple and keeps me always wanting my protein! I also alternate between serving the eggs on rye bread, brown rice/quinoa or on it’s own when I want to cut back on carbs. I hope you enjoyed these ideas!  Play around with your eggs and see what you come up with.

    5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

    5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

    Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

    You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

    1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

    It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

    Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

    2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

    If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

    3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

    If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

    4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

    A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

    5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

    If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

    Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
