Breakfast rocks my world. You know those people that don’t eat breakfast or say they aren’t hungry in the morning, well I am definitely not one of them.
Most days I grab a Fiber One bar on the way to the gym and then indulge in a good breakfast when I get home. And on the weekends, Q and I ALWAYS make breakfast, even if it is at noon.
The best breakfast, the one I go to most often and always like, is the simplest. Scrambled eggs (usually 2 egg whites and 1 egg for me), a pinch of Mexican cheese, a handful of black beans, a dollop of salsa and a quarter of an avocado. Oh and some salt and pepper for taste. Serve that with a toasted tortilla and we are in business.
Oh sure there are variations on the favorite that usually include some sort of breakfast meat for Q or the replacement of a tortilla with an English muffin, but the basics are the same.
Q is the scrambled egg king. He slow scrambles and always makes fluffy and perfect eggs. The key is to scramble the eggs IN the pan. So crack your eggs directly in your hot non-stick pan and use your spatula to mix the eggs while they cook (slowly). It’s truly an art.
And what good is breakfast without good coffee?
We got an incredible espresso machine for the wedding and Q treats me with an almond milk latte on the weekends. And during the week we have this Breville coffee maker. Q sets it the night before so he has fresh coffee when he wakes up at the ungodly hour of 5. And the coffee is still fresh when I saunter down 2 hours later. I’m a lucky girl, I know.
So breakfast, I’m all about it. What are your go to breakfasts?Pin It
