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 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

    5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

    When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out.

    When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

    So how to be who you are and always be yourself?

    “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

    You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

    Why should you always be yourself? Because you will:

    1. Live in Alignment With Your Values and Beliefs

    Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking.

    When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.

    2. Establish Your Own Identity

    When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are.

    There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.

    3. Build Courage

    It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy.

    It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.

    4. Establish Boundaries

    When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know.

    But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you.

    Create and establish your boundaries.

    5. Find Focus and Direction

    When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations, do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so.

    When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

    No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
