Egg-Topped Brown Rice ~ Why It’s A Breakfast of Champions

egg-and-brown-rice.jpgIn pretty much any country in the world – especially developing ones – I can get an egg over rice for breakfast. I just luv it. It keeps me going until lunch. Nutrition and balance excellent; the yum factor is a bonus.

  • 1 whole egg for protein and fat.  80 calories
  • 1 cup brown rice adds fiber and carbs.  218 calories
  • Dash salt. My BP yesterday was 95/60 – a self-proclaimed license to salt when I feel like it. I pepper it, too. Hot sauce, yum.
  • At home, drink 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice with 1/4 cup aloe vera juice as an anti-inflammatory remedy. TASTES LOUSY (we call it pollywog water). Wanna know something? It really helps my old lady aches and pains. About 40 calories.
  • The LoseIt app sez for my size and age, my daily budgets is 1550-1650 calories to whittle down my post-Christmas paunch and maintain.  This breakfast hovers around 340 calories.

Breakfast is one of my 3 most favorite meals of the day.

In all seriousness, I never ever skip breakfast. It launches my metabolism and sets me up for a productive day (as opposed to a bummer burnout drain).

True, when we travel, the egg is always fried in oil (unless on a cruise, then I can get it cooked in fairy dust, if so desired). I don’t care, and I don’t ask them to use less oil.  I’m on vacation and it’s delicious eating an egg from those chickens walking across the road.

  • I usually eat TWO eggs on vacation. Every day. Fuel.

On vacation, the rice is pretty much always white.  We get back to brown rice soon enough once home.

IMG_5122Back in our abode, I often cook brown rice for some meal, make plenty of extra and then have a tub of it in the fridge for several days of breakfasts.  My little Oster egg cooker can poach ONE egg at a time.  Or, just spray a sauté pan with non-stick and make an over-easy egg, slide it onto a bed of hot brown rice.

Breakfast. Do it.  Every day.  End of sermon.

Anyone who loves a poached egg over brown rice (with scallions on top) as much as I do is my new best friend. I’ve never followed a blog before, but you have my attention and I’ve subscribed! Can’t wait to see what else you have here.

You should try this with a dash of sesame oil, a bit of kimchi, and some nori thinly cut with scissors. A little soy sauce on the egg. Avocado is good too. Mix with a spoon.
