Gluten Free Multi Grain Bread, Eggs, Greens, and Salsa.

Not just for breakfast, this fabulous combination makes a winning quick meal any time of day.
1 slice French Meadow Bakery Gluten Free Multi Grain Bread
1 large egg
1 cup spinach - raw (it will wilt down to a much smaller amount)
2 tablespoons Newman's Black Bean and Corn salsa
1/2 tablespoon Veganaise

In a large pan over medium heat, scramble egg, warm bread, and wilt spinach all at the same time. This meals goes together quickly. Stack, and top with salsa and a bit of Veganaise or Feta cheese/sour cream/Aioli. Enjoy!

This speedy and delicious quick meal packs in over 11g of protein, 4-5g of fiber, and less than 3g of sugar. Additionally, you receive a wonderful variety of minerals and nutrients from this combination of grains, seeds, egg, and vegetables. The serving size above is actually quite small, but if served with a fresh fruit smoothie, it makes a satisfying meal. You can certainly add a second egg, more spinach, and more salsa, however.

Start your day with some protein, fiber, and vegetables and try it for a week. See if it helps you feel more balanced, focused, and less starving as the morning wears on. Many of my clients tell me that switching to a breakfast like this one is a favorite aspect of changing their dietary path to one that focuses on eating for wellness.
