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.
First I cut up 1 oz 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 I whisked together the eggs. Duck eggs were used in the photo. The mixture was 1 whole egg, 2 whites, and a couple of Tbls soy milk. Any milk or milk substitute is fine.
When eggs are done top with 1/2 serving of Weight Watchers 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 with ham and cheese can count this dish as 5 points. Ducks 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!
