Speak of the Devil

Guess what I caught on during my lunch break today?

This was the episode where Stephanie got married, but then her “husband” left her to go home and eat meatloaf. Classic.

I had a hard time deciding between oatmeal and eggs this morning for breakfast, so I made a deal with myself.

Whatever I don’t have for breakfast, I’ll have for lunch.

Kale, eggs, and rice are such a great combination.

Today, I used:

  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 baby zucchini, chopped
  • 2 big handfuls of kale
  • 2 Tbsp salsa
  • 1 cup of so leftover brown jasmine rice
  • 2 eggs

I put about a teaspoon of grapeseed oil in a pan and added the carrot + zucchini. Once those were softened a bit (just a few minutes), I added in the salsa and kale.

After the kale wilted just a bit, I made 2 wells in the kale mixture and cracked the eggs in. Cover the pan and let cook until they’re done to your liking.

I like mine runny – even better with veggies and brown rice under them.

I heated up the leftover rice in the microwave, then put the veggies and eggs on top once the eggs were cooked.

Add some crushed red pepper and salt, and lunch is ready.

This is one of my new favorite ways to eat veggies.

Oh yeah – that dessert I made last night? It turned out good.

I’ll give you a hint:

These are 2 ingredients that I used.

Any guesses what I made?

I bet no one will get it  :) 

Recipe coming soon!
