This breakfast will keep you full till lunch

I’ve got a craving-buster recipe for you that you are going to love. It’s a breakfast recipe but it’s great for any time of the day. That’s because it not only tastes great but has plenty of protein and fibre in it – which means it’s going to keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours.

Tip: you can swap out the feta for goat cheese if you don’t like feta. If you do opt for feta, check the label to make sure it’s made from sheep’s or goat’s milk (or a combo) – it’s delicious!

  1. In a medium pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. When it’s hot, add the beans, and cook until heated.
  2. Add the spinach and lime juice, stirring until the greens are beginning to wilt, and add 1-2 dashes of your favourite hot sauce.
  3. While the beans are cooking, crack the eggs into a bowl and add the water, whisking well. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. When the greens are wilted, add the eggs to the pan and stir. When they are almost fully done, sprinkle the cheese over the top and continue cooking until the eggs are set.
  5. Serve with optional salsa and avocado!

Leftovers will keep for a couple of days in the fridge, making this a great make-ahead breakfast. I hope you enjoy this! It’s a delicious way to start your day. Looking for another Mexican inspired lunch? Here’s a lunch recipe for you.
