Break your nighttime fast with BREAKFAST

If you're like me you HAAATEE breakfast foods. Pancakes, waffles, omelettes are just not your idea of a good time. Could not agree more, my friend.

The sad part is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It kick starts your metabolism, gives you tons of energy for the day, and keeps you full so that youre not engulfing anything and everything that you see come 12pm.

Here's a non-traditional breakfast recipe I found from Ameet Maturu, Intuitive Cook.

Serves 1-2

2 eggs
4 bok choy stem/leaves
1 carrot, diced
1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce)
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
Sriracha hot sauce (optional)
Sesame seeds or gomasio (optional)

Beat eggs in a small bowl. Separate bok choy leaves from stems. Chop both into bite sized pieces.

Heat oil in frying pan over medium-low heat. Saute bok choy stems, carrots for 4 minutes. Add bok choy leaves, cooked rice, vinegar and tamari and cook for another couple minutes. Remove vegetables and put on plate.

Add a little oil to pan if it's dry, add the eggs, and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until eggs are mostly cooked. Scramble eggs and add to plate. Add Sriracha, Gomasio to taste. Enjoy!

  1. That sounds like a crazy breakfast.
    The only Japanese breakfast I ever saw in Japan was miso soup with rice.

  2. While I do love pancakes, french toast, bacon, etc I have to say this looks like a pretty good meal. Maybe I will have it with my pancakes and french toast....
