Easy 7-min. Pregnancy Breakfast

I’ve been telling you that since beginning this 2nd trimester I’ve been a LOT hungrier, especially in the mornings. I’ve been eating 2 breakfasts because I just get really hungry so fast after my serving of Homemade Granola and yogurt in the mornings. Last week I started teaching again and I needed a breakfast that would be quick and would keep me full longer. I came up with a recipe that I’m going to try most mornings to make. It’s so easy, and eggs are a pregnancy power food.

7 min. breakfast



– 2-3 eggs

– thinly sliced red onions

– garlic powder

– shredded Parmesan (or other cheese)


Step 1

Spray skillet with oil and heat over medium heat for about a minute. Usually I just throw on the onions at this point (I slice them ahead of time).

Step 2

Crack the eggs right into the pan over the red onions. Sprinkle on the garlic powder and shredded Parmesan and let the eggs cook for 3 minutes.

Step 3

After 3 minutes, or once the eggs have bubbled up nicely, flip the eggs and cook on the other side for 2-4 minutes, depending on how runny you like the yolks to be. I cook mine for 3 minutes and the yolks are only slightly runny.
