Hi friends, happy Friday!
Eggs. Yes again. I have been eating A LOT of them lately. Mostly hard boiled or veggie scrambles but they are on repeat. Eggs are inexpensive, easy to make, packed with protein and healthy fats. Anyways, I have been meaning to buy a new pan because our designated non-stick “egg pan” has lost it’s non-stick… which makes for a pretty messy clean up.
So I took the easy way out for this one and used the microwave. Please don’t lecture me on how bad the microwave is for us. Yes I know it’s probably not the best but whatever I am lazy sometimes. If I don’t use the microwave then I better stop talking on my cell phone. Oh and listening to my iPod. Oh and using my straightener. Or blow dryer. ‘Cause all of those things are “bad” for us as well. No I don’t stand in front of the microwave but the truth is there are so many crazy things in our world that unless you literally live in a bubble you can’t escape it.
Okay microwave, technology and all other unhealthy emissions tangent over.
Simple is often best. I was starving (no surprise there) so I threw a bunch of things into a bowl: egg whites, carrot, zucchini, quinoa, pinch of this and a pinch of that. Popped it into the microwave, cook, stir, cook, eat. Done.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack… whatever floats your boat… this is a super protein packed vegetarian meal. I had this “powerbowl” with a handful of nuts and some fruit but toast or even topping the bowl with avocado would be delicious too. And no it’s not pretty. I’m over it.
Microwave Powerbowl Frittata
- 3/4 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/2 cup grated carrot
- 1/2 cup grated zucchini
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/16 tsp garlic salt
- 1/16 tsp pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
2. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, stop to stir halfway through.
And that’s it!
Before I go, I want to wish a very happy 75th birthday to my beloved Grandma. I’m heading to Montreal this morning to celebrate with her. Happy Birthday Gram — you’re the hottest 75 year old I know… keep rocking those Lulus… love ya!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
