New Recipe from Hungry Girl is Perfect for Starting Your Day–and New Year–Right
The New Year is here and so are the inevitable healthy-eating resolutions. But in the post-holiday haze, it’s important to remember that healthy eating doesn’t have to be full of rules and lacking in fun! The trick to nurturing the new you is finding smart cooking solutions that offer healthy takes on everyday favorites—while keeping flavor intact.
A prime example? Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien’s easy twist-on-the-traditional Eggs Benedict dish. This brunch-worthy recipe, dubbed Potato ‘n Eggs Bene-chick, is packed with flavor and protein and is designed to nurture both New Year’s resolutions and taste buds alike. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. With Hungry Girl’s healthy take on this morning classic, you now have the perfect excuse to start your day—and your year—off right.
Instead of the classic toast or English muffin, the lovely layers of poached egg, spinach and Canadian bacon are perched on top of naturally fat-free yellow potato slices. And, to rein in that hearty Hollandaise, Lillien created a slimmed-down version of the sauce with a simple mix of light mayo, butter and fresh lemon juice for a bit of a flavor twist.
Smart substitutions—like potatoes—are what healthy eating is all about. You can feel good about including potatoes in your diet because one medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on potato contains just 110 calories per serving, boasts more potassium (620g) than a banana (450g), provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol.
