Easy Healthy Low Cal Breakfast

I've been experimenting with tofu the past few months since I've been eating healthy.  This is a fast, easy and healthy breakfast for someone on the go.  I accidentally created this when I was rushing to a meeting and didn't know what I wanted for breakfast.  At that time I was getting tired of eating a banana and peanut butter sandwich for brekkie.  The ingredients in this dish were put together since these were the only vegetables I had in my fridge at that time but I think this will work with other veggies you usually put in scrambled eggs or even in omelettes.  If you're watching your calorie intake, this will only set you back 230 calories (without the toast = 58 cal) :) 

Remember, a good and healthy breakfast sets your appetite for the rest of the day so best to always have a full and healthy breakfast!



Easy Healthy Tofu Breakfast

1 medium egg
1 tofu
2-3 mozarella slices, cut into cubes
1 medium tomato
half a medium white onion
2 portabello mushrooms
2-3 sprigs of parsley
3-5 sprigs of coriander (wansoy)
rosemary
italian seasoning
salt
pepper
olive oil for frying
dash of truffle oil (optional)

In a small bowl beat the egg. Break the tofu into little pieces with your fingers and add to the beaten eggs.  Set aside.

Dice tomato, onions, mushrooms and put everything in a bowl.  Chop parsley and coriander and add to the veg mixture.

Heat olive oil in a small frying pan.  You can also use spray veg oil but I like the flavor of olive oil in my eggs.  Once oil is hot, saute the veg mixture until cooked.  Add egg mixture and cook over medium heat. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary and italian seasoning. After a minute add cubed mozarella and cook until cheese becomes gooey.  Turn off heat and add dash of truffle oil. Serve with toast and enjoy! :)

No Bake Graham Cracker Brownies

I bought crushed graham crackers from Rustan's the other day and thought of trying out the no bake recipe on the package. It seemed pretty easy enough so I decided to just make revisions to the recipe as I went along.  Besides I didn't want to keep left over crushed graham crackers so I did 2 batches and modified with whatever ingredients I could find at home.  The receipe is below with my modifications in magenta. :)

ps. Mr. Man enjoyed these - as usual he ate them with ice cream :)

Bol-anon Goodies!

We just got back from Bohol and since my parents are from there, I knew what to get for pasalubong.  I want to feature some of the yummy products that I bought and will use some of the items I bought for a few recipes in the future.
Bohol Bee Farm - I had to stop myself from getting all of the items from the store. These goodies are great, healthy and cost efficient! 



Yummy Pesto Spread, wonderful on toast or crackers!




This Honey Spread wasn't so bad. You don't really get the same taste as when you put butter and honey on toast. It tasted more like sweetened margarine to me. 



 
This is one of their best sellers - locally produced honey.  There are a variety of honey that's available so you need to check with the sales lady as to what kind are the sweeter vs. more bland ones.  
As a kid, I would eat half a bag of Bohol Broas everytime we had them at home.  I had always wondered why the broas from Bohol were different from the ones in Quezon.  These pastries are s…

Homemade ONE EGG Gluten Free Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a common condiment made by emulsifying an egg (typically egg yolks) with oil and vinegar or lemon juice.  Emulsifying basically means mixing 2 liquids with varying qualities together to make 1 mixture (like when mixing medicine or mixing oil and water).

I never really liked commercial mayo.  Ever since I was a kid, I hated the way mayo smelled.  It leaves a weird smell on your fingers after eating a sandwich and its particularly greasy and slimy.  Just recently I was kinda forced (well I was being practical and felt had to use my last 2 packets of light mayo) to use store bought mayo and regretted it.  It tasted like plastic and it left an after taste and after smell that I really didn't like.

So, I consulted my trusty GF cookbook - the Gluten-free kitchen and used her One Egg Mayo recipe as a reference.

I only tweaked it a little bit.  Feel free to adjust the recipe to your taste.

Ingredients:

1 whole egg (yes 1 egg, not just the yolk - I never know what to do with…
