Breakfast for dinner, breakfast for dinner!! The last few weeks, Trav & I have made a point of having breakfast food for dinner at least one night a week. I have no idea why, we are just being weirdos (just like you Mango-hating weirdos). Last week it was Carrot Cake Pancakes, tonight SSSA- or smoked salmon scrambled eggs. Seriously this was good gear!!! This served the 2 of us.
Now let’s talk about eggs…. In a world full of misinformation about nutrition, most people mistakenly think that the egg yolk is the worst part of the egg, when in fact, the YOLK IS THE HEALTHIEST PART OF THE EGG!
By throwing out the yolk and only eating egg whites, you’re essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense, antioxidant-rich, vitamin and mineral loaded portion of the egg. Yolks contain more than 90% of the calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamin, B6, folate, and B12, and panthothenic acid of the egg. In addition, the yolks contain ALL of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K in the egg, as well as ALL of the essential fatty acids (EFAs). In fact, the egg whites are almost devoid of nutrition compared to the yolks. Even the protein in egg whites isn’t as powerful without the yolks to balance out the amino acid profile and make the protein more bio-available. Got it? Just eat your yolks please.
Handful of finely chopped kale (you know I love to sneak this into things)
4 shallots, finely chopped
2 big handfuls of chopped mushrooms
2 tbs chopped fresh dill
220g smoked salmon (or whatever the nearest packet size is)
8 large free range eggs, lightly whisked
1 tbs coconut oil
Heat the oil in a large frypan & add shallots & mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are almost cooked. Add eggs and kale and scramble how you like to. When the eggs are about 1/2 cooked, add smoked salmon & dill and mix through gently. Finish cooking. Eat.4
