scrambled eggs and berries
It’s the last week of our 12 week fitness challenge and I’ve been trying to eat healthily but still enjoy what I’m eating. Scrambled eggs with sundried tomatoes and feta thrown in, and cottage cheese with heapings of berries have been working for me. This was lunch after a work-out, I’d normally eat one or the other if it was breakfast.
I’ve gotten into the habit of having just a big bowl of cottage cheese and berries for breakfast in the morning. It’s actually pretty filling and, as long as all the juices of the berries have soaked right through, it’s pretty yum. This is a breakfast you can easily take to work too. I just buy the frozen berry packs at the supermarket, and put it in the fridge overnight so the berries are soft and juicy, and use the Traditional Tararua cottage cheese.
I know cottage cheese might sound strange and a little off-putting but read here to see why cottage cheese is a good choice – “Many foods can be categorised as being either low in fat, low in sugar or high in protein, but there aren’t too many that can make all three claims. Cottage cheese can.” As long as there’s lots of berries in the mix, you don’t really notice it anyway.
I have to confess though, later on I consumed a whole block of chocolate, and then went for a run to try and make up for it haha.
