I’m always on the hunt for new food ideas, so I thought I’d share a few of my new on-the-go breakfast go-to’s here with you guys. I work a 9-5 so it’s nearly impossible to cook a healthy breakfast in the morning before work. I was packing an oatmeal each morning, but I felt like I needed to mix things up a bit. Here are a few ideas that I’ve been loving lately:
Egg and vegetable frittata
Ingredients: 4 whole eggs, 16 oz carton of liquid egg whites, 1 sliced green bell pepper, 1/2 white onion sliced, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tomato diced, cumin, oregano, salt, chili powder to taste
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat a large oven safe saute pan on high. Saute bell pepper and onion with olive oil until soft. Gradually add the spices to your liking. Remove from heat. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and egg whites, then add them to the vegetable mixture. Add diced tomatoes. Put pan in preheated oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. If your diet allows, add cheese, guacamole or hot sauce to top!
I’ve been experimenting with different veggies and spices, and this has been my favorite so far. Please comment if you have any ideas for different ingredients to add! Also this is great to cook a batch on Sunday and bring to work each morning.
This pecan pumpkin oatmeal from Trader Joes
If you haven’t been to Trader Joes recently, you are missing out! They are fully stocked with pumpkin everything. This oatmeal adds great flavor to my normal morning oats. Also another easy thing to grab in the morning and bring to work.
