Delicious Healthy Breakfast

Bacon, Onion, Cheese, Spinach Omelet

Bacon, Onion, Cheese, Spinach Omelet

I’m not a nutritionist, so when I say it’s healthy, it’s because it seems healthy to me. You and your doctor decide for yourself. That’s my disclaimer for all the “diet” / “healthy eating” information and tips on this blog. It’s just my opinions based on the research I’ve done. Now, I can tell you with authority what is DELICIOUS to me. 🙂

I’ve been losing weight since July 4, 2015, and have lost 17-1/2 lbs. To lose weight is one of my goals, but it’s also a goal to eat healthier the rest of my life. I’ll talk more about all this in upcoming posts. For today, here’s the recipe for this morning’s delicious breakfast:

In a small skillet, I put less than a Tbsp of butter,

a little chopped green onion to taste, and

one piece leftover bacon torn.

After that cooked briefly, I added

2 eggs which had been briskly beaten with a dab of skim milk, and

salt and freshly ground black pepper.

On top, I added

1/8 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and

fresh spinach which I tore into small pieces.

I cooked it all over medium heat, shaking it occasionally to be sure it didn’t stick, and tilting it occasionally to let the uncooked egg run to the sides. (I gently scraped some liquid off the top to the sides so it would cook, too.

Then I turned it out onto a small plate, folding it over on itself as I let it slide out.

Easy and delicious!!

Oysters = Starting a New Category = Cooking

Oysters A part-time neighbor who lives in Louisiana brought us oysters this morning!! Hubby started shucking them and eating them raw and shucking some and putting on a cookie sheet on the half-shell for me to prepare to broil. I have baked them before but had never broiled them. They were good!! I made a paste of the ingredients listed below, put a little dollop on each oyster, preheated the broiler and placed the pan on the highest rack until the edges curled and the oyster was done to my liking (about 4 minutes). The buttery juice in the shell is good, too. I’m planning to make oyster stew tomorrow.
