Egg Asparagus Toast

Print

Breakfast is always my favorite meal of the day. A low carb breakfast that includes protein and some greens, is the best way to start the day! Plus even my blood sugars like it too! This is a simple healthy egg dish to add to your recipe books. Eat it daily or serve it for a brunch!

Further Food Commentary:

I always recommend that my clients have eggs for breakfast. Known as the “perfect protein” eggs contain all the essential amino acids! They also help to keep you full especially when paired with the fiber from toast and asparagus. If you are thinking about going dairy free feel free to sub out the ricotta for avocado, the creamy texture stays the same but with added fiber and heart healthy fat. Adding greens to breakfast is a great way to make sure you get all your servings of veggies. If roasting asparagus seems like too much work how about just a few sliced tomatoes or a handful of arugula!
