17 Dec Easy To Make Vegetarian Breakfast or Lunch – Egg Avo Toast
This simple, protein-packed breakfast or lunch easy to make meal is a go to for me after a workout or to fuel up for a busy day. The superfood boost of Maca Powder adds an extra kick of energy boost.
I’ve been getting a lot of requests from you lately for simple and easy healthy recipes to make: this one is one of my staples! While there’s nothing new about avocado toast, I’ve recently gotten back into eating eggs again.
Because of this, I’ve experienced greater energy levels and my body overall felt better. While some may shake their finger and say, “you’re not vegan anymore!?” I want to remind you warriors: true health isn’t about a title or eating habit. It’s about how you feel from the inside out. This, for me, is the #lifestylenotadiet I so often preach, inspire and teach. Here I am, walking my talk.
Let’s get into the recipe and ingredients! I’ve kept it pretty basic and full of greens in this dish. Kale and spinach help to alkalinize the body’s pH levels. The sprouted grains and egg add protein and satiate hunger. My favorite healthy fat — avocado — helps to rebuild cells and give your body energy.
Yes, our bodies NEED fats in order to survive, and prevents our bodies from storing extra fats because it thinks we’re in a famine. It’s incredible to me today that for years of my life I avoided anything with fat in it in a wrongful attempt to lose fat from my body. Live and learn, warriors — eat your healthy fats for better health!
Here’s the secret superfood ingredient: maca powder.
I’m using Organic Raw Maca Powder from Healthy Truth foods (use code LIVEFREE to save 10% on all of your orders).
What is maca powder, and why add it to your egg breakfast? I’m a believer that superfoods aren’t limited to your smoothies, and actually taste incredible added to your dishes and meals. Maca powder comes from plants in the Peruvian hills, similar to a radish with the taste of butterscotch or a bitter caramel.
Here’s why it’s awesome: known to boost energy levels, balance hormones, and an adaptogen (meaning, it enables the body to enhance its power of resistance and adapt to external conditions).
Now that you know what’s inside, let’s get cooking!
