Hi. I'm Becky, and I love to eat. 

Weekday Mexican Breakfast Strata

Weekday Mexican Breakfast Strata

This clean Mexican style breakfast strata was designed to be a weekday meal. Like all of you, I don't have time in the morning to be making a gourmet menu each day, I need something quick, that exactly matches my diet plan. This fast recipe has a great balance of carbs (from the sprouted grain bread), proteins (from the egg whites) and healthy fats (from the egg yolks and avocado). These three macro-nutrients are the building blocks to every food you put into your mouth, and need to be studied and monitored in order to be successful in physical training in the way of fuel consumption. Once you understand your own personal typical daily macro breakdown, it becomes pretty easy to swap around these three elements throughout the day to ensure your caloric intake matches the goals for consumption of carbs, fats and proteins. This understanding is the key to muscle growth. ANYWAY! Below, find a suppppper fast, and really tasty recipe that takes under 5 minutes to prepare, and 4 minutes to cook. That's 9 minutes you need to commit to yourself in the morning on a weekday to ensure you're not hitting a drive-thru on the way to work. 

Weekday Mexican Breakfast Strata 

  • 2 pieces sprouted bread, toasted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tbsp salsa, plus 1 tsbp reserved for topping 
  • 1/4 avocado (50 grams)
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • black pepper to taste 
  • Sprig of cilantro

Toast 2 pieces of sprouted grain bread (I like Silver Hills Bakery, Little Big Bread. Lower calories!), once toasted, cut into 1x1" squares and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, 3 tbsp salsa, cumin and black pepper. Add in your bread to the egg mixture and stir with a fork until fully combine, and egg has been absorbed as much as possible. Spray a microwave safe ramekin and transfer mixture to dish. Place in microwave on high for 2 minutes. Allow to cool for 1 minute. Microwave on high for another minute. Remove from the microwave, and top with 2 slices of avocado and a touch of cilantro. Enjoy!
