Eggs with Tomatoes and Cheese

Eggs with Tomatoes and Cheese ~ is a light and balanced breakfast to start the day! Egg whites gently cooked with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese is a recipe from a great book I’d like to share with you.


I’ve been reading this fabulous book by Mark Macdonald called Body Confidence.  He actually “teaches” you how to eat for life. Not just be on a yo-yo diet, which many of us have done over and over, but actually teaches you how to eat properly.  He reminds us that babies eat every three hours to stabilize their blood sugar. That is what keeps the weight off and hunger pangs away.

This book stresses to eat every three hours in order to stabilize our sugar. I’ve made one of his suggestions for breakfast that is essential to what a person needs in one meal. It is broken into specific protein, carbs, and fats per meal. I highly recommend this book Body Confidence as a way of eating for life. It’s been around for a few years now and can be found on sale on Amazon.

Egg Whites with Tomatoes and Cheese has been our go-to breakfast for the past few years. I wanted to revive this one from our archives and hope you’ll give it a try. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
In the meantime, have a wonderful Monday!  


Eggs Whites with Tomatoes and Cheese

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 ripe Roma Tomato- chopped

  •  a pinch or more of ground cayenne pepper (optional)
1. Crack three eggs carefully removing the yolks by transferring yokes from half shell to half shell allowing the whites to drip into a bowl. 
2.  Add 1 whole egg that includes white and yoke. Add chopped mozzarella or cheddar cheese into the bowl.

    I love the idea of the cayenne – and I've always loved tomatoes and onions in scrambled eggs – delicious and so pretty. The book sounds very interesting – I will do some quick research!
