Green Fried Eggs

green eggs2

Good morning readers! I want to share my new breakfast dish with you… Meet my green fried eggs. Easy to make and a brilliant way to add a bunch of green goodness to your first meal of the day.

Eggs are one of my favourite sources of protein and they make such a great breakfast. Satisfying, full of healthy fats (providing you get high quality eggs from pasture-raised chickens that actually eat greens and not just man-made grains) and high in B vitamins, selenium and iodine, eggs are a complete protein and easier on the digestive system than most other meats.

Additional to the protein, this plate of breakfast packs a ton of greens. The spinach and zucchini are both alkalising and cleansing vegetables and the spinach especially, is an amazing plant-source of many essential minerals including iron, magnesium & potassium.

DSC_3049I personally love a runny egg but you can cook your eggs to your own preference – making them as runny or firm as you like. I always enjoy a slice of my healthy nut & seed bread (as seen in the picture above) with this dish as this bread is just amazing with eggs. I tend to take a single piece out of my freezer and toast it lightly until completely thawed on the already hot pan. Takes a few minutes, at best, and the bread is so good when lightly toasted on a hot pan (for some reason an actual toaster doesn’t work too well).

Speaking of bread – stay tuned for a new healthy bread recipe which I’ll be posting soon!
