“I can only eat so much oatmeal and peanut butter toast without getting bored. I started making scrambled eggs in the microwave to break up the breakfast monotomy at work! I serve these alongside a piece of whole wheat toast and a glass of vegetable juice. In order to cut down on unhealthy cholesterol but keep the healthy protein, I use only one egg yolk; three works fine too (just increase the water [or milk] to 3 T). I'll sometimes make these at home when I need a quick breakfast.”
