My favorite Breakfast
Here my recipe:
Eggs with Pepper molds
-Peppers, your choice of green, red or yellow.
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Salt & Pepper, or other spices. I love adding onion powder, and garlic to eggs.
Add about a Tablespoon of Olive Oil to your fry pan, You can use a non-stick spray, but I love the taste and enjoy the benefits of using Olive Oil. Clean and slice your peppers about one inch or so from the bottom. Use slices that give you the most area for the egg. Add your pepper to the pan. Cook about two minutes. Crack your egg into the pepper mold. Cook the egg for a minute, and then carefully flip the whole egg and pepper mold over. Continue to cook your egg. Depending on how you like your eggs cooked. Once done, transfer the eggs to a plate, add diced or chopped tomatoes and basil or your favorite toppings.
Power Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
It is that time of year again. Pumpkins and Squash, Oh My! I use this as a great power drink as an add on or just as a snack.
1 cup of pumpkin
Pumpkin pie spice, add to taste
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 of a Banana
2 Tbls. of Ground flax seed
Non-fat skim milk
Add all the ingredients into the blender. I am a "by taste"girl, so I adjust the spices to what I like. I love Cinnamon so I tend to put a bit more in. Plus Cinnamon is great for controlling blood sugar from highs and lows. Blend all together. I add a bit of milk to not make the smoothie so thick.
