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.

    8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

    8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

    Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

    What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

    By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

    I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

    Less is more.

    Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

    What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

    Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

    1. Create Room for What’s Important

    When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

    2. More Freedom

    The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

    3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

    When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

    Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

    You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

    4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

    All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

    We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

    It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

    5. More Peace of Mind

    When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

    The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

    6. More Happiness

    When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

    You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

    7. Less Fear of Failure

    When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

    In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

    8. More Confidence

    The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
