Good morning! I literally just rolled out of bed and I’m making breakfast… thought I would invite you into my kitchen to join me. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. In fact, I often look forward to it the night before! Especially if I’m eating Oatmeal and Egg. Now I’ve gone beyond the basics and I’ve added Sriracha and Parmesan cheese (a lower fat cheese, like all hard dry cheeses) which just enrich the flavor even more! “But oatmeal is supposed to be sweet…” Really? Who says? It’s a grain, just like pasta, rice and risotto. You’re not putting maple syrup and brown sugar on pasta. I love savory breakfast (bacon and eggs with a side of grits), and so I’m treating my oatmeal like what it is- a grain, and making the perfect complete meal filled with healthy fiber, protein, and nutrients to keep me fuller longer without packing on the fat.
This is my fave Bites with Benefits breakfast recipe because it’s a balanced, savory, warming meal, perfect before you workout or go to work. BwB (bites with benefits):
OATMEAL- Healthy carb. Helps to control blood sugar, calms the nerves, cuts fat, keeps you fuller longer, raises serotonin levels- making you happier.
EGG- Protein. Omega-3 fatty acid = good fat which help reduce inflammation and build muscle. 6g protein, 5g fat. Yolk filled with lecithin- great for connective tissue to help fight cellulite and wrinkles
MILK- Filled with bone supporting calcium, helps curb hunger and minimize fat stores.
SRIRACHA- Naturally fat-burning. This spicy condiment only has 5 calories per serving but it’s loaded with flavor and metabolism-speeding heat that wakes up your senses!
How to Make It:
Boil small amount of water w/pinch of salt.
Add non-fat Milk. Bring to a simmer.
Add 1/2 cup slow cook Oatmeal
Let sit, stirring occasionally.
Crack egg into center of oatmeal. Let sit for 30 seconds.
Using a spoon, gently pull white from yolk.
Add a 1/2 or so or Sriracha and 1/2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese.
Add white pepper and Spike seasoning to taste.
Make sure the oatmeal isn’t sticking to bottom of pot. If it is, add a little more milk.
Break Yolk and mix in. Pour in bowl.
Add 1/3 Avocado if you’d like.
It’s addictively good.
