MY GO-TO LUNCH

This is one of my favorite concoctions to put together. It is yummy, nutritious, and easy.  What is better than that?
Once I realized I made this dish 5 days in a row, I knew I had to share it with you guys! 
This dish was originally inspired when I started sautéing cauliflower and broccoli in a pan with some olive oil, salt, black pepper, and garlic. At first, that was it.
Then, one day I found myself making this dish for brunch and thought to myself, “what about some protein?”. That is where the fried eggs come into the picture. 
Once the veggies start to char, I pour two eggs into the pan and stir it around so the egg is evenly distributed. Then, I add some cheese, mix it all together, and BAM, it’s ready!  I switch off between nutritional yeast, feta, or parmesan as my cheeses. All of them are great options. 

Half the time, I find myself with a side bowl of buffalo sauce or hummus to dip the veggies in. I also alternate between brocolli and cauliflower or just broccoli for this recipe.

Below I have attached the official recipe for my go-to lunch.
