A Healthy Little Fry Up For Breakfast!
Once upon a time, (in a land far far away!) my favorite, go to breakfast would be fried eggs, mushrooms , 1 kg of bacon and a loaf of toast to mop up that yummy egg yolk. This would be a regular meal for me on Saturday and Sunday mornings – generally used to soak up the alcohol from the night before! I’m pleased to announce that I have changed my ways and no longer have these huge fry ups (in fact I really can’t remember the last time I had one). Bacon and bread are really the naughties in this dish,. I can’t come up with a healthy bacon dish – it really is just about eating it in moderation (I so want to move to moderation and live there!) So, it’s just the bread then – even if you don’t have an intolerance for gluten, bread is packed high with carbs and has very limited health benefits – so using my low carb flatbread with eggs (a healthy superfood) and mushrooms (the only food that can give you vitamin D!) I can create a ‘fry up’ of sorts and still enjoy mopping up that egg yolk. Add a little avocado and pepitas and you are on your way to a health halo!
Give it a go – a grilled tomato and some home made baked beans would be great to add to the plate too! I’ve added some avocado onto the grilled flatbread here and topped the egg off with some pepitas. Get the low carb flatbread recipe here. I’m sure you can come up with different ways to add these healthy ingredients together for a yummy breakfast but I’ve just listed one below in an easy format if you want to follow that.
2 slices of tomato
2 slices of avocado
4 mushrooms sliced
1 Tbsp pepitas
1.. Make your low carb flatbread
2. Salt and pepper a couple of slices of tomatoes and grill
3. Cut a few slices of avocado
4 Fry off your mushrooms with a little salt and pepper
5. Poach an egg
6. Compile all ingredients together and top off with pepitas.
Voila – a healthy little fry up!!
