A man expends much more energy than a woman, especially if he is active and plays sports on a daily basis. Therefore, your breakfasts need to be more abundant and give you a boost of energy for the whole day. What to eat first thing in the morning to avoid overloading your stomach with high-calorie food and simple sugars? We suggest!
Shakshuka may not be very quick to prepare, but it is extremely filling and flavorful. The basis of the dish is tomatoes and eggs, but if you add some tomato paste and peppers to it, it will be even tastier. Simmer garlic, onions and tomatoes in a pan. Make “dimples” with a spatula and pour eggs into them (as many as you think you need). Fry them to the desired consistency and, at the end, obligatorily sprinkle the dish with greens. The pinnacle of culinary art will be to add pieces of feta or bryndza to the dish. And don’t forget to cut off some bread with which you will “sweep” the leftover shakshuka!
You don’t have to stick to the recipe. We suggest “stealing” the basic idea from the English – put as many delicacies on the plate as possible! Fried eggs, bacon and sausage – this is the original composition of the English breakfast. But you can go a step further and put on the plate toast, tomatoes, mushrooms, canned beans, and even avocado languishing in the refrigerator (if it is not unripe, of course!). A royal breakfast!
Do you know what the secret to incredibly tasty scrambled eggs is? We share the secret! First of all: do not regret the butter. If you have listened to dietary stories about the harmfulness of cholesterol, put them preemptively out of your head. It’s the simple sugars that are your biggest enemy! So, melt more clarified butter in a pan than usual. Second, add a tablespoon of cream. And third – don’t stop stirring, don’t step away from the stove even for a second, and by no means let the eggs curdle too much. After all, you want them to be velvety and melt in your mouth! For good health, sprinkle the scrambled eggs with a solid portion of parsley or cilantro and nibble on some pickles.
For such a breakfast you need to prepare a little, as it requires a certain amount of ingredients. Cut yourself a pre-baked chicken breast (about 25 dag) into thin strips and lay it on a lavash pancake. Slice the cucumber and tomato, and chop the Chinese cabbage or other lettuce. Mix 50 ml of kefir with a tablespoon of mayonnaise. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Add the chopped greens. Spread the vegetables over the meat, pour the sauce over it and wrap the stuffed pancake into an envelope shape. Fry the sharma in clarified butter on both sides. Mmm… yummy!
Actually, this is a very filling casserole of eggs, meat and assorted vegetables. Fry an onion in clarified butter, and when it glazes, add bacon (or any other sausage) and 2-3 cooked potatoes cut into thin slices. Add halved cherry tomatoes (5-6 pieces). Crack 4 eggs into a separate dish, whisk them and pour them into the pan. Fry everything together, sprinkle a handful of grated hard cheese, add chopped greens and cover the pan with a lid for a few minutes. Top with tomato sauce or tzatziki. Enjoy!
