Low Calorie Breakfast Eggs

eggs and routs

When I need a change from my Paleo Cauliflower and Spinach Breakfast Bread, this is one of my favorites. Super healthy, nutritious, full of cancer fighting vegetables and so low calorie.

Cruciferous Vegetables
All cruciferous vegetables contain glucosinolates, which helps protect us from cancer. Brussels are part of the cabbage family and 1 cup is only 56 calories. They also help lower cholesterol, are full of fibre and have a ton of vitamins and minerals. Here is another recipe full of healthy, cancer fighting vegetables, Crusiferous Crunch With Walnuts and Feta.

I buy a big bag of brussels sprouts and prep them as I sit and watch TV at night. Then they get a quick wash and I pop them in an airtight container along with a peeled onion.  You will have enough for 4-5 breakfasts.

Add Some Color
You can also add chopped bell pepper or zucchini without raising the calories very much. Just saute with the brussels. Here’s a breakfast recipe using red bell peppers, Easy Gluten Free Bell Pepper Breakfast Bowl.

To Serve
Serve with a couple of slices of tomato, or add diced tomato right at the end of cooking and let them heat through for a few minutes. If you want some grated cheese, sprinkle 1/2 oz light cheddar in with the egg as it cooks. It’s enough to taste the cheese but only 35 extra calories.
