I really struggled with breakfast when I first started NSD, and found it hard to eat enough in the AM to get through the day. Now I make this ground beef and greens mix on the weekend, divide into 5 portions, and scramble a few eggs in each day. It makes breakfast quick, easy and filling.

Makes 4-5 servings

Ingredients

2x300g packages frozen spinach
1 bunch watercress, chopped
1 lb ground beef
Oil for frying
Salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

1. Thaw spinach. Squeeze or press to remove most of liquid. Put aside.

2. In large frypan, heat oil on medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned (8-10 mins).

3. Turn heat down to medium, add chopped watercress, mix gently, and cover. Cook until watercress wilts, about 3 mins.

4. Add spinach, mix again, cover. Cook 3 mins more.

5. Season to taste. Stir again. Remove from heat.

6. Divide into 4 or 5 portions.


To eat, heat up a portion, add 2-3 eggs, scramble as usual. At work I do this in the microwave - 2-3 minutes on high, works like a charm.

Sometimes I replace the watercress with kale, because watercress isn't always in stock. But kale can be starchy! Be sure to check with iodine if you're worried. Kale takes a bit longer to wilt (about 5 mins).

With 2 eggs, it comes to about 500 calories. It's also high in folate (70% of RDA) and calcium (35% of RDA), which are two nutrients that can be hard to get on NSD without dairy and grains.

Thanks for the recipe! I need those ideas and shortcuts to stay on track. Especially when I go back to work. (Just had surgery).

Good one Kellybells, but...do not use microwave. Microwave kills the nutrition in food ! Unfreeze portion night before, in fridge, and then cook in pan with the eggs, will still only take a few mins.
Take care - thanks for good recipe -

Mulehound: I definitely prefer the watercress to the kale in this recipe! It adds a bright and sharp flavour. Kale is a poor second that I add for the sake of nutrition.

Molly: I do avoid microwaves as much as possible! Science keeps saying they're fine for nutrition but I don't buy it. At home I use a pan and at work I heat most of my meals with a mini crockpot that lives at my desk. This dish is my one exception, as i have no other way to cook this at work.
