Someone Else’s Breakfast

Is my lunch!!

I like sweet yogurty oats with peanut butter. You probably like scrambled eggs and toast : )

But to me, those are the ultimate lunch foods.

The scrambled eggs I had on the Jamaican breakfast buffet, however, rekindled a love for them. I don’t know why I’ve been eating eggs sunny-side up for so long – scrambled are so delicious. The only con (or pro!?) is that it really takes 2 to make a portion. One scrambled egg is just a little lonely. But eggs are nutritious, so that’s double the nutrients.

I served my salad in juice form today: kale, celery, carrots, lemon and ginger

I went to cycle class this morning – it’s early and I always come home with my stores depleted but with a full stomach of breakfast. I always feel like I need a little post-workout snack for energy. Today I snacked on a few crackers at 11 to tide me over to a 1pm lunch.

I love scrambled eggs. Actually, I love eating all breakfast foods for lunch/dinner! If I wasn’t going out for sushi tonight, that’s exactly what I’d be having!

i’m the same way – i much rather prefer sweet for breakfast and savory for lunch. every once in awhile i’ll switch it up though. you’re right, scrambled eggs are so simple, yet so good! and good for you!

I have not had scrambled eggs in a long time, your picture kinda made me want to make some!

Even when I make something at home (and therefore can control what I put in it), having savory stuff for breakfast makes me SO thirsty for the rest of the day. I much prefer it for lunch or dinner when I already have a lot of water in me :)

Happy Wednesday, Kath!

What a lovely lunch. :) I love scrambled eggs any time of day! And I love your use of mason jars! I’ve been using them for everything lately! They are so handy!

I’ve been craving scrambled eggs like crazy lately! Been doing egg whites, but it’s just not the same as a whole egg!

19 katie @KatieDid January 4, 2012 at 3:29 pm

2 eggs- that’s a total pro not a con! I usually do 3 in the morning, I’m definitely a savory breakfast girl.

I love the Ball jars. Such a great idea for beans, rice, etc.!

I’ll eat eggs ANY time. YUMM>

22 Kristen @ Change of Pace January 4, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Breakfast for lunch or dinner is the best! I usually just do one egg and one egg white… That way the neither is lonely :)

Nice jars, we use some similar ones too!

I’ve debated taking a Spin class. I’ve heard that they are hard. Do you like your cycle class?

25 KathEats January 4, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Love it. I definitely prefer the ones that are bike rock cardio to the ones that try to simulate outdoor biking though.

I can eat breakfast anytime of the day! Looks delicious :)

27 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 4, 2012 at 4:05 pm

I love breakfast for lunch or dinner, but I can only eat cold cereal as a night time snack. Same with oats, I love them as a snack, but most of the time I need a savory hearty breakfast with tofu eggs and cast iron skillet potatoes. YUM.

Stay warm!

I scramble mine with nutritional yeast and a hefty sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Yum!

Ooh I’ve got all of those things for the smoothie, I’ll have to see if I can get the Mr to drink it since he’s wincing at the thought of kale! HA!

I love having breakfast foods for different meals instead of just breakfast. Scrambled eggs are yummy! I never make them enough either.

31 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous January 4, 2012 at 4:33 pm

I love how you store things in mason jars!

32 Paige @ Running Around Normal January 4, 2012 at 4:50 pm

See now I think 1 egg is never enough period. I like at least 2, but usually 3, no matter which way I eat em! :)

33 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga January 4, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Yeah one scrambled egg is pretty much 2 big bites…lol. Agreed, must make 2 if scrambling.

And that jelly looks delish!

I agree about eggs for lunch – I love them then but prefer oats or pancakes for breakfast!

What kind of juicer do you have or did you make your juice in the vita-mix? I’ve heard a vita-mix can juice.

Reply

36 KathEats January 4, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I have a Breville Juice Fountain Plus. It’s wonderful, but I don’t know if I would buy another if it broke. The vitamix can make veggie smoothies, but not juice. They are pretty different in taste and texture.

Hi Kath!
Happy New Year! I’m sure you have mentioned this before, but can you tell me what brand of Chia Seeds you use and how to use them. Thanks!

Reply

38 KathEats January 4, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I buy them from Chiaseedsdirect.com because they are the cheapest per pound there. Free shipping too! I put them in oatmeal or overnight oats to add texture or use them as sprinkles

My youngest son and I love scrambled eggs for dinner…the ultimate easy comfort food for us. I will scramble 5 between the two of us and sometimes that doesn’t seem enough! lol We love it on toast with a side of veggies…I like peas or brocolli. My mother grew up always having a her eggs with a broiled tomato…she’s English. Quite yummy!

40 Emily January 4, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I too am obsessed with jars. Like the idea of putting crackers in them. We did homemade Christmas and I got many jars filled with goodies. Let’s see more ideas of things to put in them!

I only ever eat eggs for lunch or dinner too – I always want something sweet in the mornings!

43 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning January 4, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Yeah for cycle class! Maybe that’s why I’m always so hungry- it does deplete all of your energy stores!
I love eggs for lunch- especially on a salad (scrambled or poached- it doesn’t matter!)

I really like your mason jar idea! I’m very interested in the jam on your toast…what kind is it? Almost looks like a cranberry?

I love eggs for lunch or dinner but not so much for breakfast. I once had someone tell me it was “so white trash” to eat breakfast foods for lunch or dinner. Really…

Scrambled is my favorite way to eat eggs! Although I definitely prefer oats!

Breakfast type foods are my favorite foods, so I will sometimes have breakfast and breakfast for lunch or breakfast for dinner ;) I like how you have things stored in Bell jars, I use them for rice and beans, they are so easy!

50 Sharon January 4, 2012 at 8:39 pm

I’m assuming you used the yolk too in your eggs? I hear that it is the most nutritious part, so why is there a big deal with egg whites? I’m asking you your input since your an RD! Thanks Kath, btw love that you really do eat real food!

Reply

51 KathEats January 4, 2012 at 8:41 pm

The yolks have all the nutrition!!

Back in the 80s people thought eggs = high cholesterol. This has been proven untrue. EAT YOUR YOLKS!!

I guess some people just like the whites or are trying to cut calories, but they are cutting their nutrition short!

I almost always eat only one egg, no matter how it’s cooked! It’s not lonely, I promise :) I’ve even perfected the one egg omelet!

54 Khushboo January 4, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Agreed about eggs! I’ll occasionally have them for breakfast but they are more of a lunch/dinner ingredient for me! Brunch/Brinner–> always a winner :D

I am a huge fan of breakfast for lunch and dinner!

Actually, I’m really fine with breakfast ANYTIME. Especially pancakes.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes.

I like scrambled a lot but as a Meeting/Event Planner I find that most hotels use powered eggs on buffets so I opt to go a la carte Eggs Benedict or for an omelette instead. They are my preferred type when home though!! From your RD studies – did they ever mention that? If they were “real” eggs I’d definitely be up at the buffet more often!!

Reply

58 KathEats January 5, 2012 at 1:09 pm

The ones in Jamaica tasted real to me, but they very well could have been bagged or frozen. I would always assume fresh is best when it comes to food though

59 Krissy - Single Serving January 5, 2012 at 12:46 pm

*powdered – not powered eggs :)
