Today we start off our first EVER guest blogger! Say hello to Evelyn and read on to see her tips & tricks to eating healthy on campus.
Healthy Microwave Egg-Scrambler
The health benefits of eggs are seemingly endless. They are rich in protein, essential nutrients (like choline, selenium, biotin, vitamin B12 and riboflavin), and they help you keep full for longer. But without a full kitchen enjoying this superfood becomes a little more difficult. I would like to introduce you to egg-scramblers! All of the ingredients for this recipe can be found on campus and you simply need a microwave to make it. At first, I was skeptical of microwaving my eggs, however the end result is just as fluffy and satisfying as any restaurant omelet. Whether you want to start your day with a filling meal or enjoy breakfast for dinner, follow these simple steps to fuel your hectic days.
You will need:
1 Microwave safe bowl1 egg (or 1/4 of egg whites)
1/3 cup of desired filling (I used artichoke hearts, spinach, and onions from the dining hall's salad bar, but you can choose any combination of vegetables you would like)
1) Chop your ingredients into smaller pieces. BUT if you are using ingredients from the salad bar you can skip this step because they are already cut for you.
2) Put ingredients in the bottom of a microwave bowl and pour your egg over.
3) Thoroughly stir the mixture and then microwave it for 1 minute.
4) Remove scrambler and stir again (please note it is not fully cooked at this time!).
5) Microwave scrambler for one more minute.
6) Remove from microwave and enjoy with whole wheat toast and a piece of a fruit for the perfect meal.
