Man was I hungry this morning! I looked in the frig to get ideas and then it hit me…breakfast tacos! I had an avocado – oh yeah, some corn tortillas, eggs and left-over bruschetta. That’s when I began doing the happy dance…food was coming and fast. I cooked those eggs, sliced that avocado, warmed those tortillas and topped it all off with some leftover bruschetta I made over the weekend. It was really good and filling and satisfying and…there are not words. So if you’re as hungry as I was, try this simple and quick recipe, then let the happiness wash over you as that first bite hits your tastebuds….garlic, basil, balsamic, tomatoes, fresh eggs and avocado. Oh yea, life is good!
- 1/2 avocado
- Drizzle of olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 corn tortillas
- Chopped tomatoes, salsa or bruschetta
Cut avocado in half and slice lengthwise. Remove outer peel and place slices on a plate. Warm a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan on medium-high. Add eggs rich in Omega 3 (I like Egglands Best*), and cook on one side until the whites are almost done, about 3 minutes or until they are no longer opaque. Flip those bad boys over and cook another couple of minutes. While they finish, warm tortillas on a napkin in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Place on a plate, then put eggs on top of tortillas, add avocado and then the bruschetta (if you don’t have any on hand, you can find the recipe here), chop a tomato or use your favorite salsa. Feel free to add cheese if your little heart desires. And, if you want more bang for your nutritional buck, add some black beans!
*These are the eggs I’ve been buying lately. They aren’t as expensive and don’t have as many Omega 3 fatty acids as some brands, but hey, it’s a start!
Root Notes: I’ve been reading a lot lately about the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids in our diet. So I started buying the more expensive eggs because I want to live as long as possible. Omega 3 eggs are produced from chickens fed a diet containing flaxseed. “Omega-3s are rapidly becoming an important tool in mainstream medicine. They seem to have health benefits for every age group – from before birth to old age. There’s conclusive evidence that they protect against heart disease and lower triglycerides. There’s also some research showing that they might help with dozens of other conditions, too.” Learn more here!
