I apologize for the lack of posts lately, but this past week has been quite the whirlwind. I went on an epic road trip though the South and one of my posts was featured on Buzzfeed (!!).
If you haven’t ventured through some of our southern states, I highly recommend doing so. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have noticed that my entire trip revolved around eating (as it should), and you really can’t beat Southern food (I’m looking at you Chicken & Waffles).
Our trip started in Louisville where we met up with one of my best friends whom I’ve known since high school and ended in Atlanta where we have friends from college (we drove one way and flew back). Along the way we stopped in Nashville and Savannah as well. Savannah is the most beautiful city I think I’ve ever been to, and I will definitely be back.
If you want to hear more about what we did & ate in Loiusville, you should definitely check out my friend’s “Weekend Guide” blog post about it.
Now that I’m back, my body is basically screaming for healthy food. Thus my breakfast today rang in at a very low, yet filling 260 calories. It was so good, I had to share.
In the past year, I’ve been on a serious Ricotta cheese kick. Specifically: Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese from Trader Joes. They are they only ones I’ve found that have super creamy Ricotta similar to what you would make at home. I love it.
I also made my breakfast with egg whites, but you could easily make it with whole eggs as well (I made it for my husband this way, and he loved it).
If you are in need of something quick, healthy and protein packed to start your day, I could not recommend this more.
Ricotta Chive Eggs on Toast
- 3 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs)
- 4 tbsp Ricotta cheese
- 1 tbsp chives, chopped
- 1 English muffin, toasted
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Heat a greased pan over medium heat.
- Add your eggs and heat them until they begin to solidify on the bottom.
- Add the Ricotta cheese and chives and start mixing with a spatula.
- Continue mixing until the eggs/ricotta mixture is cooked, but not dry. You want it to take it off the heat when it looks like it is just about done, but still has some liquid.
- Spoon the mixture on to your English muffin, and serve!
You can substitute your favorite kind of toast for the English muffin. If you are using eggs rather than egg whites, use 2 whole eggs.
