Stuffed Potatoes with Scrambled Eggs
As far as I’m concerned eggs are the perfect protein choice for a quick meal. They’re inexpensive, and pack a nutritional whollop.  Scrambled eggs being my version of choice.

For awhile there, the incredible egg got a bad rap. Folks watching their cholesterol intake wouldn’t touch them.

In recent years, science has discovered that eating foods containing cholesterol doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll raise the cholesterol in your blood. Authority Nutrition has a quick primer on the health benefits of eggs worth a read if you have concerns. (Always check with your doc too!)

I know what you’re thinking. It wasn’t long ago that the medical community told us to avoid eating eggs because they contributed to bad cholesterol. We were to eat them sparingly to avoid heart disease, along with a host of other nasty illnesses.

But have you heard the latest news? Now we can eat as many eggs as we like, even two every day of the week!

Healthy Weekday Breakfast Recipes

I am a breakfast fiend. I wake up at the crack of dawn (5 am), and by the time I arrive at work (7 am), I’m starving! You can see why breakfast recipes are abundant in my cookbook library.

I’m picky about my morning meal, it has to have specific benefits.

  • It has to stick to my ribs, so there has to be protein in the mix.
  • It has to be portable, because it’s often transported to work to be eaten at my desk.
  • It’s nice if it includes fruit, since I’m a veggie lover, and eating fruit is a challenge.
  • It has to be reasonable in calories and fat.

Ham, Vegetable and Egg Scramble

This holiday season I just can’t seem to pull things together. I’ve become the ultimate procrastinator.

I have yet to finalize our dinner menu, and finally finished shopping. That’s not to say that I’ve wrapped a single gift.

Since procrastination isn’t typically part of my character, I’m going to attribute my lack of holiday focus to the chaos going on at work, due to a particularly large project.

Another victim of my lack of focus is Kretschmer.

This company was kind enough to send me a bottle of wheat germ several weeks ago, hoping that I would review it in a timely manner and develop a recipe for them.
