Breakfast is my favourite meal, hands down! So switching it up by adding in some nutritious veggies and fresh flavour is the best way to take it up a notch. These bruschetta eggs came to me by some stroke of desperate creativity, during one of those whirlwind “what the heck do we even have to eat around here!?” moments… and voila – this was the tasty result!
As a nutritionist, some of the most common questions I get are about what to eat for snacks and the best way to get in a healthy breakfast. Here in North America, breakfast is generally synonymous with what I like to call “beige food.” We’re talking breads, cakes in many forms, sweetened yogurts and sugary cereals – just processed carbs upon carbs, with an extra side of unhealthy carbs. And listen, I’m not knocking carbohydrates, we need them to function. But we need the right kinds and amounts, like complex carbohydrates and also not in abundance. We really need to round out the nutrients within our meals, especially if it’s our first one of the day.
