I’m normally not one for eating the same thing every day but my new breakfast has me in love and has been going strong for about 2 weeks now. The fact that I haven’t even gotten a picture of it yet is proof that it is that yummy and I just didn’t have a spare moment to snap a picture!
1 Thomas English Muffin – Light
2 Large Eggs
Non Stick Spray
Put your english muffin in the toaster. Meanwhile in a non stick pan over medium/high – spray a bit of non stick spray, just to be safe – crack and drop your eggs. Sprinkle with a bit of seasoned salt. Cook until the whites are opaque and the outsides begin to lift away from pan – about 2 minutes? For over easy flip and turn off the pan. Let cook for about another minute or so. While this is finishing take your toasted english muffin and with a knife scoop some avocado onto the muffin. Since it is warm the avocado should almost melt like butter. Add an egg on top of each half and voila! I’m seriously addicted to this, sooooo good!
And on to the dinner!
Spinach, Mushroom & Garlic Couscous with Grilled Chicken
4oz Chicken Breast – pounded so even thickness through out
Handful of Spinach
Handful of Mushrooms
Healthy scoop of Minced Garlic
1/4 cup Couscous
Terragon Shallot Citrus Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
In a small pot add 1/4 cup couscous, a little over 1/2 a cup of water and a healthy scoop of terragon shallot citrus seasoning. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer until all the water is absorbed ~15 minutes.
Get 2 pans going over medium heat. In one place the chicken breast, seasoned with the terragon shallot citrus seasoning. In the second pan add mushrooms, salt, pepper and a little bit of EVOO. Once mushrooms are almost done cooking (about 5 minutes) add in spinach and some garlic. Stir to get the spinach to wilt. Make sure you are keeping an eye on the chicken and flip it after 5-8 minutes – depending on how thick / how much you pounded the meat out.
Once spinach is wilted check on the couscous. If it is done, fluff with a fork and add in the spinach, mushrooms and garlic. If it is not, remove the veggies from the stove and put on a plate until couscous is done. Once every one is finished add a little crushed red pepper if you want to the couscous, if not just enjoy as is!
I get on binges where I will eat the same thing for weeks, and I embrace it!! If it tastes good…eat it again and again and again!
I think it has to do with efficiency and budget too. Having multiple breakfasts a week =’s more groceries!
That breakfast sounds really good. When I was in college, the only meals I ever made were basically meat and veges heated in a pan, because I was too lazy to make anything else.
In college I waitressed so I always got free meals! Not the best nutrition wise… hello college weight gain… but it was free!
