My turn: Breakfast cereal has twist to it

I’m a dyed-in-the-wool cereal-fruit-milk-type-of-breakfast person, but Travis Foster of Portales sees it differently.

Foster makes a breakfast that’s low in sodium and sugar, and has protein and vegetables. He says if it’s cheap and fast, he eats it.

Travis Foster’s Breakfast

• 2 cups broccoli, chopped

• 2 cups cauliflower, chopped

• 1/4 onion, chopped

• 2 eggs

Curry powder, pepper and Greek seasoning, to taste

1 can each black beans, Great Northern beans and kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Mix broccoli, cauliflower, onion and eggs. Add generous amounts of curry powder, pepper and Greek seasoning. Stir well. Microwave until eggs solidify. Meanwhile, mix and mash beans. Serve vegetable mixture hot with beans on the side.

Serves 2-3.

Rinsing and draining the beans significantly decreases sodium.

The vegetable and egg mixture is a nice way to get protein and other nutrients.

My microwave took 4 1/2 minutes to solidify the eggs. You can nuke the vegetable-egg mixture in intervals of a minute or a minute and a half until it’s done to avoid overcooking it.

Also, if you’re concerned about sodium, watch the ingredients of your Greek seasoning. The kind in my cabinet had plenty of salt.
