Here is a great, colorful breakfast dish that is easy and fast for anytime of the day.

A little prep work on the veggies, and the rest quickly falls into place. One of my favorite things is to have cleaned and cut veggies in plastic bags in the refrigerator. That way the veggies are ready for snacking, or for chopping and adding to other dishes. With just a little time prepping your favorite veggies once or twice a week, you can make almost any dish faster and healthier. This will also make it easier to include fresh veggies into your daily life.

OK, back to the dish. You can use whatever your favorite veggies and cheese are, but the following combination is one of my favorites.

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 cup red onion, chopped

3 cremini mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped

2 leaves Kale, blanched in salt water, chopped, or if raw, chopped into small pieces

1/2 tomato, diced

2 large organic eggs

1/2 avocado, diced

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 ounce fontina cheese, grated

Over medium heat, sauté the onion in the coconut oil for about one minute, then add the mushrooms, a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper and cook for another three minutes.

Then add the red bell pepper, kale, and tomato and cook for three minutes, stirring occasionally. Now add your eggs and stir it all together so the eggs scramble into the veggies. Cook for another three minutes, then sprinkle the cheese on top. Turn off the heat, and stir in the avocado.

I love habenero sauce on my eggs, but use what ever your love. Or you can add a chopped serrano when cooking. The hot pepper is yummy but it also increases your circulation.

This is the type of breakfast that energizes your day by providing your body with clean, fresh fuel to get your metabolism going, while packing a burst of nutrients all at the same time! The ultimate in multitasking!

In 10 minutes you will have given your body two servings of vegetables, a multitude of nutrients, and enough protein to last you through your first crisis at work. Bodies handle stress better when they are fortified.

Who knows, this may start a trend at work – Super – Stress – Eliminator – OK, let me work on that line…

Until next time… Eat on Purpose!

Happy Living!
