Mi migas! Don’t wait until the weekend to treat yourself to a delicious breaky. It’s probably my favourite meal of the day, it gets my metabolism fired up and fuels what lies ahead. Be conscious of what you put in your fuel tank and make that first meal clean of processed foods – including cereal bars/cereal/bread – they are LOADED with sugar and crazy chemicals that will cause your insulin to spike, leaving you hungry an hour or so later! Does that ring a bell for anyone?
Prepare migas at the weekend and fill those tupperware boxes for the week ahead. It’s easily reheated in the microwave and tastes just as good. So here goes:
↠ Tin of black beans ↠ 2 Eggs beaten
↠ 8oz Tomato sauce ↠ 2 Cups spinach
↠ Tabasco sauce ↠ 1 Cup mushrooms
↠ Cayenne pepper ↠ 2 tbsp Avocado
At medium temp, heat a tbsp of olive oil in a small saucepan. Add the beans, tomato sauce, 3 dashes tabasco and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (add more for added spice!). Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes / until the beans are soft and sauce thick.
At medium temp, heat tbsp of olive oil in a medium sized pan and add the mushrooms. Saute until soft and then add the eggs. Allow this to cook for a couple of minutes, mixing the mushrooms through the egg. As it begins to scramble add the spinach and cover, allowing the spinach to wilt. After a couple of mins, remove the lid and stir together, season with salt and black pepper as desired.
I serve this with 2 tbsp’s of avocado on the side. This meal is balanced in fat, protein and carbohydrates and will keep you full for a few hours. Substitute the mushrooms with any other tasty vegetable. Zucchini works really well.
