Scrambled Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions or scallions
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow or green bell pepper
  • 6 whole eggs or 6 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 bunch cilantro (1/2 cup cilantro leaves)
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper , seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 6 slices whole grain bread
  • 6 slices honeydew melon
Make the salsa: Hold the cilantro under running water to wash off the dirt. Pinch the leaves off the stems, coarsely chop the leaves, and put them in a small bowl with the remaining salsa ingredients. Toss thoroughly until everything is blended together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Make the eggs: Smear a nonstick medium sauté pan with 1/4 teaspoon of the oil and set it over medium heat. Sauté the mushrooms, onions and peppers in the pan, tossing them occasionally, until limp, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Whisk the eggs, salt and milk together in a small bowl. Coat the bottom of a separate pan with the remaining olive oil, set it over low heat, pour in the eggs, and partially cook them for 3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon until they are no longer runny. Transfer the partially cooked eggs to the pan with the vegetables and cook everything together for 1 minute, stirring with a wooden spoon or spatula. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Cut each bread slice diagonally, put them on a cookie sheet, and toast them under the broiler on the lower rack for less than 30 seconds on each side. Serve the eggs with toast, a slice of honeydew melon, and a small ramekin of salsa.
