Eggs! It’s What’s for Dinner?!
Aren’t eggs supposed to be the super protein that kick starts your mornings? Did you know that eggs are only eaten for dinner and not breakfast in Czech Republic? According to Bowling Champion, Tomáš Novotný from Varnsdorf this is a simple fact as he tells SusieQ FitLife in plain English. So, we decided to put a scary spin on those eggs with a dose of green & red bell peppers to see if it will excite the olympic athlete in all of us! Here’s a light meal that will be a perfect way to end your day, especially if you’re short on time. Six grams of complete protein is packed into every large egg with only 72 calories. In fact, three large eggs are equivalent to the nutritional value of a 5-7oz serving size of lean meat! Wow! That’s what’s for dinner!
Vegetables are complimented when you add eggs to the meal, similar to omelets! Whether you prefer a spicy scrambled egg dish with splashes of salsa or simplified with zucchini and basic produce items; we are about to mix up your main menu!
Let’s scare the peppers, beat the eggs, toss the tomatoes & wake up those yams!
This dish is inspired for many FitLifers who need a refreshingly new way to have a satisfying meal!
