Arugla Egg Pizza

It's an easy, cheap and nutritious meal. If you need to try and keep the spending down a bit on your grocery bill, then this is one easy recipe, for 2 people, but could be stretched to 4 people.
Sometimes when you need a meal without having to think you might need more something, this has it all. I know that some of you out there have a hard time digesting eggs, and this may not be for you then. One way to ensure you are getting the best protein and nourishment from eggs is to use the free-range, grass-fed chicken eggs that do not contain any hormones or preservatives added to the feed. You will notice the difference when you make the switch to the farm eggs because they will have so much flavor and color. Not like those factory farmed eggs that are so small, papery thin and bland. Try it out, and I guarantee you will not eat another factory egg again!

Many people can digest eggs or casein better if it is combined with a cayenne or hot pepper ( I guess that would also have to be for people that enjoy some heat in their food). I personally have gone months without eggs and have felt somewhat better, especially if I was eating vegan to heal from something specific, but I also know the benefits of the egg as being a balanced protein that carries a good amount of amino acids and vitamin B without having to eat meat protein. I enjoy something easy and fresh every once in a while and this is something my husband and I can share without having to spend lots of $ or time in the kitchen. Enjoy with a fruit smoothie of choice or some tea/coffee.... and really you can whip this up for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Easy, delicious and nourishing to the body, what more can you ask for?

What you need:
6 cage-free free-range eggs
1/3 cup of water
1 heaping cup of chopped arugula or spinach
2 medium chopped green chili peppers (with or without seeds)
dash of cayenne
1 ts of minced garlic
1/4 cup of chopped onions (if you prefer)

1 ounce of feta goat cheese for topping

Whip up all the above ingredients in a mixing bowl and pour into a raised frying pan or large wok. Make sure you have the pan getting hot with some fresh olive oil before you pour in the eggs to make sure they don't stick and start heating up right away. The turn down the heat and let cook on a lower heat for maybe 10 minutes or until you start to see the eggs cooking all the way through, then with 2 spatulas try and flip the egg pizza so that you can brown the other side as well. Cook on that side for 5 more minutes and the the eggs really just a little crusty on the bottom. Then sprinkle the fresh goat cheese on top and add some fresh herbs if you so desire and viola you have an egg pizza! I like to slide mine out of the wok and place on a serving plate to cut and serve.

Now if you want to fry up some potatoes or make some gluten-free toast that can be nicely added, but really you don't need much more. My husband likes ketchup on his eggs, so you may add whatever sauce makes you happy.
Enjoy and have a peace-filled day!
