I have just joined back up at the gym and once again I am trying to get back into a healthier routine. After Chrismas, I plan to go regularly to improve my fitness and I need to start improving my diet too.
When I get to the gym I always work hard. Sometimes it is the getting to the gym that is the hard part!! Rain, snow, or apathy often keeps me away though. If I do make it I like to eat healthy on my return home. I know how hard it was to burn off the calories!! So I don’t like wasting all that effort…
When I get home from the gym I crave healthy food. My eldest Son always tells me to make sure I have a balance of Protein Carbs and Fats.
I always make eggs for some reason and 9 out of 10 times it is scrambled egg.
Today I am sharing one of my favourites after gym workout snacks. This gives me the right amount of carbs protein and fats back into my system. Thanks Son!!
Scrambled Eggs, Avocado and Parmigiano Reggiano Bagels:
Serves one but is easily multiplied.
- 2 medium egg
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- Black pepper, grinded
- 1 bagel
- 1 medium ripe avocado
- 3 Tbsp of Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Parmesan Cheese
Cut the bagel in half and place them in the toaster to cook later.
Crack the eggs into a bowl and lightly whisk until the egg yolk and egg whites are nicely mixed together. Grind some black pepper over.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and peel the skin off. Mash the avocado up with the back of a fork.
Heat a non-stick frying pan with Olive oil over a medium heat. Start to toast the bagels. Pour the eggs into the pan and leave for a few seconds. Stir them with a plastic spatula. Leave for a few seconds, then repeat until eggs looked cooked and no juice is still in the eggs.
Grate some Parmigiano-Reggiano Parmesan cheese and set aside 3 tablesppons full.
Pop the cooked bagel on a plate, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of Parmigiano-Reggiano, Parmesan cheese onto both bagels. Divide the scrambled egg between both bagels. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of Parmigiano-Reggiano, Parmesan cheese onto both bagels. Share the smashed avocado onto both bagels and sprinkle the remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano, Parmesan cheese on top to finish.
Serve straight away whilst nice and warm.
Healthy, Delicious, Moorish and very filling.
The great thing about this after gym workout snack/breakfast/ brunch or lunch is that you can mix and match it.
How about trying it with a fried egg or poached egg? All equally delicious!
