It may surprise you to know that breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day. ¬†I love a good muffin or pastry, but realistically I can‚Äôt eat that every day. ¬†So finding a healthy breakfast each morning frustrates me sometimes. ¬†I tend to find one thing I like, and then do that every day until I can‚Äôt stand it anymore. ¬†This blog has forced me to actually branch out and try different things. ¬†Now if only I had a blender, I would try more smoothies!
To complicate the breakfast problem, I don‚Äôt really like eggs. ¬†I can handle scrambled eggs, but that is it! ¬†Years ago I went on the Atkins diet for 2 weeks; that was torture. ¬†Eggs for breakfast was difficult. ¬†I worked out of the house at the time too, so I had my breakfast in the hospital cafeteria. ¬†Cafeteria eggs are even worse! ¬†Lately though, I can do scrambled eggs with ham. ¬†And now, avocado!!
I have mentioned many times before I could live on avocados, and put them with everything. ¬†Well here is proof. ¬†I put them with eggs. ¬†They were amazing! ¬†¬†The buttery avocado blends with the creamy eggs, and I really liked it. ¬†Topped with a few fresh chives, and it is even better! ¬†So not only does it taste amazing, but it is full of healthy fat, and protein to get your day off right.
Avocado Scrambled Eggs
1 Tbls milk
1 tsp butter or margarine
1/2 avocado, diced
1 tsp chives, chopped
Heat a skillet over medium low heat. ¬†In a small bowl beat the eggs and the milk together until light in color, about 30 seconds. ¬†Once the pan is hot, add the butter to the pan, and swirl to coat. ¬†Pour in eggs. ¬†Stir the eggs occasionally, until they start to set. ¬†Add the avocado, and continue stirring until the eggs are fully cooked. ¬†Top with fresh chives to serve.
