Maybe your month of “clean eating” is getting a little boring by now – Breakfast for Dinner to the rescue! This week we are creating a delicious dinner of tacos with eggs and black beans. Creamy eggs studded with black beans are the star of this dish, with supporting flavors from salsa you can make yourself – in a snap!
The turmeric that we use in the eggs, not only adds beautiful color to the tacos, it also adds super nutrition, too. We add turmeric into lots our recipes because of the active ingredient curcumin that is in the spice. The main reason curcumin is SO powerful is because of its anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, there are hundreds of studies on curcumin’s cancer preventive properties. It can also delay diabetes, protect the brain, and decrease joint pain. Make sure you add fresh black pepper and a healthy fat to any recipe you put turmeric in to increase the bioavailability in the spice. (Black pepper and fats like the olive oil and avocado in the recipe allow your body to absorb more of the nutritional goodies from the turmeric.)
Whisk the eggs, whites and turmeric together with the milk
Coat a skillet with olive oil. Pour in the egg mixture and the black beans and scramble for about five minutes or until done to your liking. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place a spoonful of eggs in each taco, sprinkle a little cheese and top with a dollop of salsa, non-fat Greek yogurt if desired, a slice of avocado and the onions and cilantro.
Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
