Scrambled eggs & asparagus might be the perfect start to a terrific day!
I have heard that foods can actually be mood-lifting, and that asparagus of all things, is one of the best. I decided to give this a try as a breakfast experiment, scrambled eggs and asparagus with a little ham and cheese.
Breakfast definitely seems like the perfect time to start with mood-lifting food.
Cut up 1 ounce of ham (meat substitute for vegans) and a handful of asparagus tops. I sauteed them in a small amount of Smart Balance Light. Use olive or coconut oil for Paleo diets.
Then whisk together the eggs. Duck eggs were used in the photo. The mixture was 1 whole egg, 2 whites, and a couple tablespoons of soy milk. Any milk or milk substitute is fine.
When the eggs are done, top them with half an ounce of Mexican Style Blend Reduced Fat Cheese. For yeast-free and Paleo diets, no cheese. For vegan diets, I suggest Follow Your Heart Cheddar Or Fiesta Blend Style Shreds or Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds.
Weight watcher points plus ham and cheese can count this dish as 5 points. Duck eggs are an extra point due to their larger size.
This scrambled egg and asparagus combination was so amazing. The asparagus really blends nicely with the egg. I decided to try it out on my husband the next day.
Success! He also loved it.
I hope you give it a try….it is sure to make you smile!
I use this type of skillet, GreenPan Valencia Pro Hard Anodized Healthy Ceramic Nonstick 8″ Frying Pan Skillet, and love it!
