And back to healthy eating. I think we ate enough meat at the beach to feed a small village. I’ve been trying to eat a more plant based diet, which is challenging when you live with a confirmed carnivore.
I’ve lost about twenty pounds over the last few months, but need to kick things up a notch to get the rest of the extra pounds off. Steak and cheese don’t help. Neither do vodka martinis (sob).
Here’s my breakfast today.
It’s a healthy version of migas.
4 scallions, chopped
Handful of baby kale, sliced
Small tomato, chopped
Ground chile, about a teaspoon
Small handful of tortilla chips, broken into pieces
I sautéed the scallion in a tiny bit of olive oil, then added the tomato and kale and cooked for a half a minute. I scrambled the eggs with the chile and salt and added to the pan. As soon as the eggs start to set, add the chips and continue stirring until the eggs are done. Serve with salsa.
Usually migas are full of cheese and things like refried beans, so aren’t all that healthy. The veggies bulk this up quite a bit so you don’t need as many chips. I couldn’t eat all of it, John finished it off and pronounced it good. Next time I’ll add more veggies. Spinach and bell peppers would be good as well. If you made this with three eggs it should be enough for two people.
* if your chips are pretty salty, don’t add extra to the eggs
