#Easy #Healthy Brekkie

Here is a super easy no- carb, protien rich breakfast to keep you healthy and full until lunch.

1 large cup green beans cleaned and chopped

1/2  cup carrots cleaned chopped ( use the same cup for measuring )

Mix and microwave on regular for four minutes. That will keep the colours fresh and the veggies slightly crunchy . I am not sure what your position is on microwaving . I didn’t use a microwave for two years and definitely felt it was better for me. But my busy life has made it a trade off – healthy but microwaved or not at all.  However a good option is steaming veggies in a colander over the container in which you boil the egg though the egg may end up super hard boiled.

1 boiled egg chopped into four to six chunks

I don’t know your position on eggs but I am happy to eat eggs in any form . I  find one is usually enough for me at breakfast . Many people recommend two eggs or if you are not having yolks, up to four eggs. I am all for the yolk but I find one egg enough.I don’t recommend you try this with tofu or paneer as it is quite tasteless. As for eggs I use the ones from Prabhat poultry at Mahim. I have tried country eggs but they are incredibly intense. I have also tried this with Keggs,  quail eggs and organic eggs. Good old Prabhat poultry works  just fine.

Add 1 table spoon apple cider vinegar ( don’t try it with ordinary vinegar )  salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently – don’t break the egg chunks

OPTION 1: Add a drizzle of olive oil or coconut oil and a sprinkle of toasted almonds if you like.
