Breakfast in bed, anyone?
A warm, comforting breakfast is the perfect way to surprise your family (and treat yourself) this holiday season…especially if you make our healthy switches! Try these out…
The Meal: A Decadent Momma meal of cheesy, savoryÂ spinach and artichokeÂ omelet, with a side ofÂ apple and cream cheese gingerbread brulee…
Why It’s Good: The omelet is made with a splash of V8 juice and plenty of spinach and artichoke (for a great serving of produce), although the Provolone cheese is more for taste than waistline. The chopped apple, raisin and cream cheese mixture is relatively healthy (and oh-so-yummy), although the gluten-free bruleed crust (made from Gluten Free Pantry Spice Cake & Gingerbread mix) is definitelyÂ intended for a special treat!
Make It Fast:
* If You Want Low-Calorie: Switch the regular eggs for Egg Beaters (usually 60 calories per container) or egg whites, and fill up on the artichoke and spinach (they’re good for you!) Swap the full-fat Provolone cheese for a low-calorie option (like Laughing Cow Cheese Light Swiss Wedges). Make the gingerbread and apple mixture low-calorie by adding Light cream cheese to the apple/raisin mix, and crumbling a few low-calorie gingerbread cookies on top (before heating).
* If You Want It Fast: Use frozen spinach, canned artichoke, and cook the eggs scramble style in the microwave. Take pre-sliced apples, add some raisins and cinnamon, and heat them in the microwave with a small amount of cream cheese (or soymilk)…and you’re done!
