Bowled Over – 4 Green Eggs and Ham

Bowled Over – 4 Green Eggs and Ham

 

Top your carb and fiber rich oatmeal with sweet or savory toppings for a tasty nutritional boost.

Cook 1-cup steel-cut oatmeal according to package directions. When the oatmeal is cooked, add mix-ins to the pot and stir until heated through. Divide the oatmeal into 4 bowls and garnish each serving with toppings.

Savory oatmeal makes a great lunch or dinner. Lean ham and eggs pack protein to satisfy your hunger, while spinach contains nitrates that improve muscle functioning during exercise.

Stir into the pot:

  • 1/3 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/3 grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Top each serving with:

  • 1 ounce black forest ham, chopped
  • 1 fried egg
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • 320 calories

  • 5 grams fiber
