The last few weeks (and months even), my eats have been a lot of the same things. I haven’t been getting bored with it either, because I love all my easy, go to healthy meals. But the last week or so, things have been switched up a little bit!
Mostly because I’ve been noshing on Easter leftovers since Sunday night. But I also had a couple new ideas for meals to change it up a little bit.
You all know how my heart lives for Mexican food. Breakfast tacos are no exception. We always purchase corn tortillas for tacos, and we love to make homemade baked tortilla chips out of them! Well last weekend, Kyle decided to just broil the whole tortilla instead of cutting them into chip shapes. Genius.
Hello breakfast tostadas!
- Corn tortillas (desired amount)
- Scrambled eggs or egg whites
- Any of your favorite breakfast toppings
- Optional seasoning: creole, garlic, salt, etc.
- Place top rack on top-most notch in oven. Set oven to broil.
- Spray a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray, and lay out tortillas. Spray tops of tortillas. (You can season tortillas here if you wish!)
- When oven is ready to broil (when coils are orange), pop your tray in the oven.
- This is where a little bit of trial and error comes into play depending on your oven. Broil about 1 minute, or until you see the tops of the tortillas starting to brown.
- Remove tray from oven, flip tortillas. Again, let broil about 1-2 minutes, until flipped side also begins to brown.
- Take out and let cool a few minutes. Top with your favorite breakfast toppings and serve!
Although Kyle used his tortillas for nachos, they made for a perfect breakfast dish!
Snacks have been changed up a little bit too. I have seen so many people eat smoothies from a bowl. I always thought it was the weirdest thing. Ever. Until I tried it and it was delicious.
My real intent for trying this was not because I wanted to. It was really because I wanted a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, but we were out of almond milk. So I topped my smoothie with it instead!
Lunch and dinner have pretty much been the same! So let’s take this picture times two. Eating Easter leftovers of ham, mashed potatoes, and green beans. This is my Easter remix as I called it, eating some leftover chicken instead of ham. I also skipped gravy on the potatoes, which Kyle later told me was un-American. My bad!
