Quick & Easy Bus Breakfast

It’s time to purge and get the system reset for the New Year!  Yes, it’s already 2010!!  After a week of hard partying (some much harder than others) it’s time to cleanse with vegetables. Vegetables are your body’s main source of vitamins and minerals and are far more superior than juices and concoctions that sell for $20 an ounce :).  Don’t waste your money or your time!

Do you have a microwave on your bus? If so, opt for this healthy egg dish:

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup spinach (raw)
  • 1 tsp butter or olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • whole grain English muffin
  • 1 slice of ham or canadian bacon

Directions:

In a microwave safe dish (like a Pyrex measuring cup), whisk your egg with butter (or oil).  Microwave for 30 seconds.  Add in your spinach, and microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Meanwhile, toast your English muffin.  Assemble like a sandwich and enjoy!

Spinach is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Niacin and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber,  Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Manganese, and Amino Acids (PROTEIN–believe it!) So next time grab a handful of spinach and toss it into your eggs, smoothies, and in spaghetti sauce.

  1. Thanks very much for putting together this great site.

  2. Really exciting story, something comparable to this occurred to me not too long ago and it pretty much played out similarly to how you describe it.
