Healthy Breakfast Sandwich:

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • Handful of spinach or any leafy vegetable
  • Guacamole
  • 1 piece of bread
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning

Steps

  1. Toast the bread. Grease a mug with oil or nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Crack the egg into a cup and check for blood. Scramble the egg. When that’s done, wash the veggies, and add them to the mug.  Add salt and pepper for flavor.
  3. Put the egg mixture into the mug and cook in the microwave at 30 second increments. Mix the egg mixture if there is still raw egg.
  4. Get the toast out of the toaster, cut it in half, and spread the guacamole on it.
  5. Assemble the sandwich and enjoy.

 

Breakfast Burrito

Similar to the sandwich, prepare the ingredients and place in a tortilla. Feel free add in whatever you like. Here are some ideas:

 

  • Egg, cheese, and salsa
  • Egg, spinach, and turkey strips
  • Egg, turkey strips, and potatoes
