Fluffy egg whites and crispy coconut oil fried plantains come together in this Truffled Egg Whites & Plantains dish for a simple, gourmet style breakfast!
You guys know how much I adore my eggs for breakfast. Well, funny thing is I’m so obsessed with eating them that I actually used to take really strange measures to eat them every morning. For years, I traveled as a consultant every week. That meant early Monday morning jet setting to wherever work took me. That required waking up earlier than anyone on this planet is meant to wake up which also meant no egg making time. So sad!
Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice nutrition. It simply means getting creative! Instead of going egg-less, I boiled eggs every Sunday to take with me on my travels. I wasn’t about to skimp on nutrition because I was traveling. Throughout the years I’ve seen a lot of consultants do that and as a result, they suffered from various health conditions.
That was motivation for me to take my nutrition seriously which is why Eggland’s Best were my eggs of choice. Eggland’s Best are a good source of B vitamins which play an important role in energy production. That is something I needed with all that travel! In fact, Eggland’s Best eggs has 3x more vitamin B12 than ordinary eggs. That’s something you want to get plenty of when you’re traveling a lot!
On one particular project, I was traveling to Honduras a few times a month. I swear I have Latino in my blood because I absolutely loved it there! It also helped that I had awesome co-workers who made work feel more like play. They were always up for an adventure and really good food.
Honduras was where I was introduced to plantains. You don’t find many of them in the mid-west! In Honduras, they eat plantains for every meal and in every way possible. I can still remember my first morning going to breakfast at the hotel and seeing everyone with their eggs and plantains topped with salsa. From that moment on, I was hooked on eggs and plantains. I loved the combination so much it became a winter staple in my household.
Now every time I eat eggs and plantains it transports me back to the time I spent in there. Thankfully I’m not traveling like that anymore and can enjoy eggs in the comfort of my own home every morning. Life has an interesting way of cultivating what you eat. If I hadn’t been traveling, I may never have started eating Eggland’s Best eggs and if I hadn’t traveled to Honduras, I may never have eaten a plantain.
