How to scramble

Recipes

The less time you apply heat, the more nutrients vegetables retain. At least that’s what I’ve heard and it seems to be true! Whenever I overcook my veggies they don’t taste as good, and it only makes sense that the more alive something is the more nutrients it will have. Anyways! Here’s my scramble and how I made it ☺️ enjoy! *all ingredients are organic*

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1/3 cup chopped onions 
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 heaping handfuls of spinach
  • 2 heaping handfuls baby spinach (the spinach and kale should fill a large salad bowl uncooked because they cook down so much, but you can always add more if you need)
  • 2 eggs (can always add more)
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste

How-to:

Turn the stove on medium head and add the olive oil. After about 45 seconds, add the garlic and onions then sautée for about 1-2 minutes. Add the spinach and kale and stir around until they cook down (about 3 minutes). Remove onions, spinach and kale mixed with the garlic from pan and place into separate bowl. Then add the eggs with a tbsp water into the pan. Stir to scramble and once the eggs are almost done cooking, add all veggies, including tomatoes and green onions, then stir together with spices. I chose chili powder, cayenne pepper and salt. Enjoy!  

 

OatMEAL that’s actually good

Recipes

Working full time, keeping the house clean, paying bills, trying to stay fit and healthy…this can all be difficult to time manage. However the one thing that we can’t go without paying attention to is that you must eat! Therefore, finding quick and easy recipes that you don’t have to make everyday is key. 

Welcome: the breakfast oatmeal casserole! Healthy, quick, and satisfying. Here is the recipe below, which can be modified in many ways (see my modifications below). I used all organic ingredients and swapped out the dairy where I could. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this an 8! Very easy, inexpensive, filling, and tasty!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups All Natural Oats
  • ⅓ Cup Brown Sugar 
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Chips (dark chocolate)
  • 1 Cup Strawberries (raspberries)
  • ⅔ Cup Blueberries
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 2 Cups Milk (vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Butter (organic melt buttery spread)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chia seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 10×10 casserole dish generously with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the chocolate chips, & half the berries. Stir well and pour into casserole dish. Add the other half of the berries & chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Then, slice the banana & add to top. Sprinkle on chia seeds. 
  4. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, & vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Pour on top of oatmeal mixture, making sure the all oats are soaked evenly. 
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove casserole & add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the casserole for added sweetness (optional.) Bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden brown.

Some modification ideas:

  • Try adding chia or flax seeds to the mix
  • Lessen the sugar and butter
  • Swap one cup oats for one cup freekeh
  • Try different berries, like raspberries
