Breakfast for dinner is one of the ultimate comfort meals. It happens to be super-nutritious as well. Eggs provide a perfect mix of protein and fat plus tons of important nutrients, and at 70 calories a piece, they offer instant portion control.

Added bonus: an omelet on a Tuesday night can make you feel like you’re enjoying a leisurely Sunday brunch. Adding a mimosa to your meal is totally optional, but far from discouraged.

First, figure out what kind of eggs you want. A few ideas:

  • Fried
  • Poached
  • Omelet
  • Frittata
  • Hard-Boiled

Then, to make it a balanced meal, pick some veggies and a carb. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Sprouted-grain toast topped with avocado slices, and a fried eggs; a side of greens
  • Lentils with roasted veggies, a sprinkle of goat cheese or feta, a teaspoon of tahini, and a poached egg
  • Brown rice with cooked mushrooms, scallions, soy sauce, and a fried or poached egg
  • Fill an omelet or frittata with your favorite veggies; serve with whole grain toast or English muffin or half a baked potato

You can also think outside the breakfast box and do something like Shakshuka (eggs poached in tomato sauce—or my shortcut version).
