Healthy breakfasts for children

My children (7, 10 and 13) all make their own scrambled eggs. They add cheese, salami, ham, last night’s veggies, butter and whatever they like. Scrambled eggs are a superb way to use up any leftovers.

This makes a huge meal, and is high in healthy fats so will keep you fuller for longer. Once you eat this, you may not even feel hungry for lunch. Remember to eat only when hungry, eat until almost full (it takes a while for your brain to catch up with what you have just eaten) and do not eat out of boredom or habit.

If you don’t feel hungry at lunch, don’t eat. Learn to trust your hunger signals. This simple keto smoked salmon scrambled eggs with leafy greens is so more nutritious than a bowl of cereal/granola, which then makes you hungry by 10 am.

I am always trying to find new ways to have eggs. By adding cream cheese and leafy greens to keto smoked salmon scrambled eggs, it turns this into a meal you can have at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

2-Minute Eggs

There are two ways you can cook scrambled eggs in just 2 minutes.

2-minute microwave scrambled eggs: Simply whisk the eggs in a microwavable bowl, cook on HIGH for 1 minute, stir then cook again in HIGH for 45 seconds-1 minute depending on your microwave power. Stir. Done.

2-minute frying pan scrambled eggs: This recipe shows you just how easy it is to wilt some spinach in frying and then throw the scrambled eggs on top. Whisk while cooking in the frying pan or skillet, then serve.

    Just come across the site this morning. Liking what I see, the layout is good.
    For this recipe how much smoked salmon was used for the Fat calculation?
    Best wishes

  2. Steve, From Noosa,
    Hi Libby, Love The recipes, But I don’t Use microwaves, could you Cook Old Way, And Add Microwave Use between recipes, Just A thought.

    1. For sure, it is totally up to you how you choose to cook this, but by only providing recipes without a microwave option, shuts off a huge part of the population, who probably need help the most. I like to help people find the easiest way possible to make real food, real easy. Microwaves don’t denature food or nutrients any more than an oven does but I can understand some hesitation for some.

  3. Linda Burns says:

    Could i use water instead of milk, i don’t buy milk, or maybe cream. Thank you.

    1. Sure, or you could even do without any liquid. I am still stuck in my old ways of diluting the eggs in some way to make them lighter, but it’s not really necessary.
