Healthy lunch idea: Hard-boiled eggs with miso and Swiss chard

Today I had this very quick to prepare healthy lunch. This is clearly a very basic meal option, yet I wanted to post it because it’s quick to prepare, tasty, and offers a good combination of healthy nutrients.

Hard-boiled organic eggs: I normally boil eggs for 9 minutes. A trick is to put the eggs in the water when they are at room temperature (not fridge temperature). This helps avoiding that the egg shells crack during cooking. Eggs is clearly the source of protein here.

As you can see, I had 4 full eggs. If you are concerned about the amount of cholesterol in eggs, I’d recommend you take a look at my article about healthy fats.

Miso: after the cooking I have added one small spoon of Miso on the eggs. Miso can be used to boost the taste of various dishes, it adds a salty taste and, being a fermented probiotic food, brings the healthy benefits for our guts. Hard-boiled eggs with miso it’s really good combination, it tastes delicious.

Swiss chard: as a side dish I had Swiss chards. Boiled and then pan-sautéed with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and black pepper.

Wholegrain crispbread: I really like the crunchiness of wholegrain crispbreads, they brings carbs and a good amount of fiber

Water kefir: To drink, I had my home-made water kefir. A delicious probiotic drink.

Small fruit salad: I had a simple and small fruit salad with blueberries, a couple of grapes, and apple peel … a leftover from my daughter 🙂

As always, I have finished my lunch with a small piece of gourmet chocolate 100%

And a cup of strong Espresso coffee
