After my two gestational diabetes pregnancies, I started eating a high protein breakfast every day. After many, many, many days of eating eggs, I decided to add some JOY to my plate by changing things up a bit and trying new ideas. This dish came as a result and it is one of my favorite ways to eat eggs. It is quick and easy to make and packs a nice punch of protein and vitamins…my kind of breakfast. enJOY!
