G-Breakfast: Quinoa, Avocado and Egg

January 16, 2018 Gerald J Joseph Recipes

This quick, satisfying breakfast is loaded with anti-inflammatory foods: extra-virgin olive oil, avocado, tomatoes, quinoa,  black beans, olives and organic farm fresh eggs.

For even more anti-inflammatory antioxidant benefits – during your day have some bilberries or blueberries an hour before and or after your meal and don’t forget to hydrate, take your walk and get a good nights rest.

Organic farm raised eggs come from hens that see the sun in open grassland and eat a diet rich in the foods they evolved to eat – bugs and worms and are never given antibiotics and hormones.

The first things you will notice when you crack open your first organic egg – it has a darker/richer yolk color and the taste, amazing!

USDA organic eggs are easy to find; just look closely at labels on egg cartons the should say certified organic on them or better yet, look up a local farmer and go with your children to visit the farm and pic up a dozen just laid eggs.

My – G breakfast recipe calls for cooked quinoa (white – golden -red) (Bob’s Red Mill Organic is a great option) — or pick up a time-saving package of precooked organic (unseasoned) quinoa in the freezer section or the grains aisle of your supermarket as more and more manufacturers are offering this convenience.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, and ingredients of your choice with some lemon.

Step 2

Combine quinoa, tomatoes, beans, cilantro, a few olives; toss gently to combine. Divide mixture evenly between 2 bowls.

Step 3

Heat a non-toxic 100% PFOA free skillet (no Teflon coating). Add 1/2 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat.

Crack eggs, 1 at a time, into pan. Cover; cook until whites are set and yolk is still runny, 2 to 3 minutes and slide them over the quinoa and vegetable mixture of tomatoes, olives, beans and avocado with a splash of olive oil and lemon. Add a garnish and or yes even some hot sauce, and or additional cilantro and fresh lemon.

This will become one of your favorite breakfast – I served this to many of my guests who visited me in Coconut Grove Florida
