On phase 1 of the South Beach Diet breakfasts are hard for me. I don’t know, stuffing my meals and snacks with veggies is pretty easy, but breakfasts not so much. So I end up eating eggs… eggs about a billion and four ways.
This morning I had the brilliant idea for Huevos Rancheros after finding a frozen bag of meatless meatballs. Strange… I know.
It was so tasty!
First spread about 1/3 cup vegetarian refried beans over the bottom of a plate. Then heat them in the microwave for a minute or two.
Now heat 3-6 meatless meatballs in the microwave until hot (mine take a bout a minute). Once hot mash them with a fork and stir together with taco seasoning and crushed cayenne pepper.
Fry two eggs with salt and pepper. I use a little onion powder too. Leave the yolks runny.
While the eggs fry break up a slice of cheese, I used pepper jack and melt it in the microwave over the meatless meatballs and beans.
Once melted top the beans, meatballs and cheese with the egg and pour a generous helping of salsa over the top.
I think this will definitely be a go-to breakfast for the next week.
So school has been a little overwhelming. It’s a big reason why I haven’t been blogging. I have tons of reading due for every class and I’m at the beginning of writing two 20 page papers. I’m stressed already. I can’t even think about how crazy I’ll be in a few weeks.
On a really awesome note, I just ordered a new computer to help me get my papers done! See, I do everything on a little netbook and I do love it for it’s mini cuteness, but it is a little slow. Plus the screen size makes writing long papers really hard. I was trying to do research on an online database that uses Adobe Reader and it was taking over a minute to open simple document pdf files. Hopefully my new laptop will be here soon. I’m shooting for Friday.
Well, I’m off… Happy Tuesday!
