'Whatever’s in Your Fridge' Eggs

Start your day right with protein, fiber and fat! This checks all the boxes and can be made in 10 minutes or less! The key is to finely dice your veggies for optimal digestion not to mention it significantly cuts down on cook time.

Ingredients

・1 egg
・Spinach or arugula
・Sea salt & pepper
・¼ of a lemon

Whatever else is in your fridge! Some of my favorites are
・1/4 avocado (rich in nutrients, including folate, vitamin K, B & C + monounsaturated fats and minerals)
・Flaked smoked or baked salmon; Lox (Omega-3 powerhouse - portion size no bigger than the palm of your hand)
・Zucchini,
・Mushrooms
・Sweet potato

Instructions

You can choose to scramble, fry or soft boil your egg. Then, take a handful of the spinach or arugula and saute it lightly in a frying pan. Sprinkle a little sea salt and pepper and squeeze a fourth of lemon onto the greens (not only does this easily elevate the flavor but it ups your vitamin c and iron absorption.) Next, simply place the egg right on top!

Make it your own (get creative - there is no wrong combo):
But this is just the foundation for whatever else could be in your fridge. Pair it with the avocado and salmon. Or, use vegetables like zucchini, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes by finely dicing them, sautéeing them lightly on low to medium heat in coconut or avocado oil. Then, right before the vegetables are done, mix in your greens (1-2 minutes) and viola!

Meg’s Pro Tip:
No eggs no prob: substitute with 1/4 - 1/2 cup chickpeas with spinach sautéed in a pan with a little bit of coconut milk, sea salt and paprika. To up your greens, add in thinly chopped zucchini or roughly chopped spinach.

Having just turned 30 and knee deep into a master’s degree, I felt like everything had finally fallen into place! I had barely noticed that my periods became increasingly irregular and chalked up that dull lower back pain to dehydration. It’s not until about 3 months later that I collapsed from pain due to stage 2 Endometriosis and a recurrent hemorrhagic cyst. The diagnosis came with two increasingly limited options, surgery and the birth control pill or a hysterectomy. Nevermind the fact that I was 30 and never asked if children were in my plan. While acupuncture, massage and herbs helped to mitigate some of the pain, I was told there was no cure. Feeling helpless and with little agency, I turned to my diet. And, while at times, it felt like a potentially futile step it also armed me with the gumption to take back what little agency I felt had over my body and future fertility.

It took the better half of a year of trial and error but in that time, I eliminated almost 90% of my symptoms, regulated my periods and most importantly armed and empowered myself with the knowledge to best support my body. My goal is to impart some of the wisdom I have gleaned over the last five years to other women and men in supporting healthy hormones. There is so much information out there and while it can feel overwhelming I am here to assure you, it doesn’t have to be. And, no, you don’t need miracle powders, potions and tinctures. Keep it simple. Eat ingredients true to form that were grown in the ground and watch your body do what it works so hard to do every day - FIND BALANCE.
