How about this delicious breakfast!! This is a healthy loaded potato. Swap the regular potato for a sweet potato, which have fewer calories and more fiber. Then prepare some scramble eggs with spinach and there you go! You have a healthy topping. This is so good! The sweetness of the potato, the bitterness of the spinach, saltines of the egg and I added a little bit of this awesome hot chilli sauce that my son brought me from Hatch (great place well known for growing beautiful tasty chillies)! You have an explosion of great flavors in your mouth! Just Delicious!

Migas con Huevo

My father has been in my mind lately. His birthday and the anniversary of his departure were fairly recent. I miss him, he was a very honest hardworking man and admirably, he was always in a very good mood. I remember he loved migas con huevo, he could have it for breakfast or dinner. The first thing that came to his mind when mom asked him what he wanted to eat, was Migas con Huevo.

It is such a simple yet delicious dish. I must have passed this crave to my children, because I also remember them as little children climbing on a chair to chop the tortillas for me to prepare the eggs.

Hope you like this way to prepare eggs that bring me such good memories. Serve them with salsa, some avocado slices or refried beans.

This green egg muffins are loaded with protein, fiber and flavor! Very simple, Green chiles and cilantro add such a great seasoning that they don’t need anything else. Spinach add vitamins, iron and fiber. Eggs add the protein that you need to start you day. I find egg muffins so convenient because they keep for several days in your refrigerator and you can pop them in the microwave to have a healthy quick breakfast. They make a very healthy snack too!

Avocado Salsa

Let’s face it I’m Mexican and we ALL Mexicans love salsa. We pour salsa over everything we eat. We always have any kind of salsa stored in our refrigerators. We like to add the spiciness and another layer of flavor to our meals.

You are going to love this salsa, you’re going to want to pour this creamy salsa over everything! Do not mistake it for guacamole, this is salsa, thinner.

We all know avocados are loaded with healthy fats, fiber and various important nutrients. So let’s add some healthy spice to our meals!

Root Vegetables

This time I prepared some roasted root vegetables. Turns out, they are very good for you! Don’t just pay attention to the starch content. Most of them contain folate, manganese, potassium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin C, B6, and iron. Maybe because they are submerged in soil that they absorb all this nutrients straight next to them in the ground.

I choose: red potatoes (maintain bone health), carrots (good for your eye vision), parsnips (regulate immune response), sweet potatoes (contain twice as much fiber than regular potatoes and this gives them a slow burning quality) and beets,(have a lot of nitrates which brings oxygen to your muscles. This is huge for athletes because it helps exercise longer. I would love their pigment would travel all the way to my cheeks!!). Of course this is just an example of all the health benefits of including root vegetables to your diet.

Lets not forget about the rosemary, it stimulates the immune system, contains anti-inflammatory compounds and improves your concentration by increasing the blood flow to your brain.

Have them for breakfast with a poached egg or for dinner with a nice steak, as a side on your next meal, or as a compliment of a green salad.

Baked Eggs

Today it is so cold out there that I needed a comfort food breakfast. So I went to my roots and prepared some mexican style baked eggs. Some ingredients typical in Mexican recipes are: tomato, onion, chile (serrano) and garlic. I used some fresh herbs and immediately all the aromas started to warm up my kitchen and my home. And soon enough my tummy too! This is the perfect breakfast for the weekend!

Morning for Pancakes

IMG_1057

This morning I saw my bananas getting ripe, great! I can do lots of things with ripe bananas. One of my favorite is this simple pancake recipe which is made in no time, no mess. The ripe bananas give the natural sweetener to this recipe so you don’t have to add any more sugar. Can’t believe I didn’t used to like bananas! They used to be sitting there getting ripe until I started to experiment with them. So give it a second thought before you trow away ripe bananas!

This is low sugar, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian and of course, delicious!
