DIY; Healthy Brunch, Two Ways

July 26, 2013

This summer I've been posting SO many DIY's and recipes. I've been cooking and baking (as well as creating!) everyday. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that come September I will be back to a diet of dining hall food & fro-yo. I mean realistically, my school was voted to have some of the best food in Boston, and the surrounding area has SO many amazing restaurants and cafes, so I will certainly be eating well & deliciously, however I am definitely going to miss making my own meals. That being said, one of my favorite meals to make is brunch. I normally have an early morning green smoothie, and around lunch time, a few days of the week I make myself a delicious breakfast style lunch. I used to hate eggs, but recently rediscovered my love for the protein & nutrient packed food and haven't looked back since. Here is healthy brunch, two ways;

If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen the above photo. A little glimpse to my average brunch. I like my organic farm fresh eggs (from my neighbor!) cooked thoroughly, no runny yokes for this girl. I also sliced up an avocado for some healthy & essential fats. And added some potato. I have a serious love for hash browns, or shredded potatoes, but not that frozen stuff. I shred a potato (locally grown and organic) toss it in a little olive oil, homemade Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and throw it in a waffle maker until golden brown. Sometimes I add a slice of multi-grain toast, garden fresh tomatoes, mushrooms or turkey sausage onto the plate as well. A healthy & well balanced plate. 

The second thing I love doing is making a breakfast in a ramekin. I think they are so cute, and fun for a breakfast party, or family gathering.

Steps;
-Preheat oven to 350 F.
-Grease your ramekin(s) with olive oil.
-Line with a thick layer of  mashed potato (I added some homemade Italian seasoning in)
-Crack your egg into the potato lined ramekin. 
-Cover with a layer of Parmesan cheese & Italian seasoning.
-It would also be fun to add fresh tomatoes, spinach, basil, or some sort of breakfast meat (if you eat meat)!
-Bake for 20-40 minutes depending on how you like your eggs. (For me it was 40).
-Check progress every so often with a toothpick if you are unsure!
-Enjoy your individualized, delicious, & healthy breakfast!
