What We Ate Today #7

Okay, so I have a confession to make:

I was supposed to do a post about Turkish Thursday. That is a new tradition BJ and I have where we order yummy Turkish food. It is quite a delicious spread which demonstrates that you do not need to feel deprived when eating to lean out. I was going to take pictures of the yummy salads, kabobs, brochettes, and Shawarma.Unfortunately/fortunately, it was so good and I was so hungry that BJ and I ate it all, and by the time I remembered I was supposed to photograph the food, well, all that there was left was…nothing!

Here is a pic on the web of what it looked like (Sans the rice and the pita of course!):

What I love about Turkish and Mediterranean food in general is the use of tons of veggies, healthy fats and the fact that meat is grilled, but still juicy and full of flavor.

So that is what Turkish Thursday is all about!

Now the night after that I was feeling lazy, but had to make something, so I made an egg bake. Here is my pretty little egg bake:

Here is how I made it:

Ingredients:

9 Whole Omega 3 eggs

Veggies of choice diced or sliced ( I used mushrooms and tomatoes this time because that was what was in the fridge…but I also use peppers, onions, spinach, broccoli, you name it!)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Optional Ingredients :

2 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 Cup of cheese

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350. Beat the eggs and if you are using whipping cream, mix it in. Let the mixture sit. Take your veggies (except tomatoes, they can go in raw) and sautee them in a pan until they stop looking raw…you don’t need to cook them too much as they are going in the bake.

Coat a baking dish with butter or olive oil and pour in the egg mixture. Add the veggies and throw in the oven. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until you can stick a knife in and it comes out dry. FYI- I did not use cheese in this bake but you can mix it in before adding the veggies if you do.
