    Ok,
    So I am getting really tired of my diet and want to switch things up a bit. I am wanting to know what you guys use for flavor or spice on chicken/eggs etc. I am not a huge read meat eater and usually stick with chicken or fish/brown rice and veggies for dinner. Eat eggs and oatmeal in the morning. What can I do to make my food better???

    For your eggs...

    Chop up onions and add them to your eggs. That would add to the flavor ...and give additional health benefits

    Health Benefits

    Onions, like garlic, are members of the Allium family, and both are rich in powerful sulfur-containing compounds that are responsible for their pungent odors and for many of their health-promoting effects. Onions contain allyl propyl disulphide, while garlic is rich in allicin, diallyl disulphide, diallyl trisulfide and others. In addition, onions are very rich in chromium, a trace mineral that helps cells respond to insulin, plus vitamin C, and numerous flavonoids, most notably, quercitin.

    And bell peppers....

    Health Benefits

    Colorful Protection Against Free Radicals

    Want to color your life healthy? Brightly colored bell peppers, whether green, red, orange or yellow, are rich sources of some of the best nutrients available. To start, peppers are excellent sources of vitamin C and vitamin A (through its concentration of carotenoids such as beta-carotene), two very powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants work together to effectively neutralize free radicals, which can travel through the body causing huge amounts of damage to cells. Free radicals are major players in the build up of cholesterol in the arteries that leads to atherosclerosis and heart disease, the nerve and blood vessel damage seen in diabetes, the cloudy lenses of cataracts, the joint pain and damage seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and the wheezing and airway tightening of asthma. By providing these two potent free radical destroyers, bell peppers may help prevent or reduce some of the symptoms of these conditions by shutting down the source of the problem.

    Shitake mushrooms....

    Invigorate Your Immune System

    Recent studies have traced shiitakes' legendary benefits to an active compound contained in these mushrooms called lentinan. Among lentinan's healing benefits is its ability to power up the immune system, strengthening its ability to fight infection and disease. Against influenza and other viruses, lentinan has been shown to be even more effective than prescription drugs; it even improves the immune status of individuals infected with HIV, the virus that can cause AIDS.

    I also add chopped broccoli sprouts to my scrambled eggs...

    Broccoli [sprouts] definitely proves the adage, "Good things come in small packages" since by weight they provide an even more concentrated source of sulfur-containing phytonutrients than mature broccoli. Researchers estimate that broccoli sprouts contain 10-100 times the power of mature broccoli to boost enzymes that detoxify potential carcinogens! A healthy serving of broccoli sprouts in your salad or sandwich can offer some great health benefits.


    For your oatmeal...

    add Cinnamon....

    Blood Sugar Control

    Seasoning a high carb food with cinnamon can help lessen its impact on your blood sugar levels. Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating.

    and Bananas...

    Health Benefits

    Creamy, rich, and sweet, bananas are a favorite food for everyone from infants to elders. Sports enthusiasts appreciate the potassium-power delivered by this high energy fruit.

    For eggs; In the spring, buy a couple of plants of chives from Home Depot or Lowe's. Plant them in the yard, near to the door which is closest to the kitchen, in an area that gets full sun. Cut and chop them and toss them into your eggs.

    Chicken; Toss 5-6 pounds of chicken breasts into a crockpot along with 16 oz. of apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon of salt and a tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes. Cook on high for 4 hours. Pull the chicken breasts out of the crockpot and chop finely. Season chopped chicken with additional cider vinegar, salt and crushed red pepper flakes to taste. (This makes what is known as East Carolina BBQ and was originally made with pork butt, with fat removed after cooking and prior to chopping and seasoning. It also works with turkey breasts.)

    I love tarragon...it my favorite herb...esp with eggs although its classic for poultry but not too much for fish. And instead of oil, I use flavored cooking spray...PAM has this butter flavor which is pretty good.

    if you have a slow cooker get a great big mother f'in load of onions, cut them up, put them in the slow cooker for a couple of hours and let them stew until they turn a wonderfully dark golden brown..

    It's caramelized onion in massive quantities.. you can add them to anything really and they taste SOOOOOOOO Good and have no extra calories icon_smile.gif

    I like a pinch or two of dill weed in my scrambled eggs OR a few shakes of Montreal Steak spice.
    Add either when you beat the eggs. Makes scrambled eggs less humdrum
