Egg and Guacamole on a Rice Cake

I don't get much time in the kitchen these days. Elaborate meals are a thing of the past (for now). Instead, I'm relying pretty heavily on freezer meals and quick, healthy bites to eat. If I'm not physically feeding one child, I'm rushing to plate a delicious breakfast or lunch for the other. Only after these two monkeys eat do I finally get the chance to eat something myself. And I'm typically so starved that I don't have the patience to really get into the art of making a meal. Hence, quick and healthy (or freezer, which is typically reserved for dinner).

Today, I have a recipe for you that outlines my new favorite quick-and-healthy. I view it as a starter recipe because honestly, there are so many directions you can go with flavor and/or ingredient customization.

Behold, egg and guac on a rice cake.

(Insert drool here.)

It's so easy, I shouldn't even post the recipe (which is loosely based on something I tore out of Clean Eating at some point in the not-too-distant past). You can probably guess the ingredients just by looking at the picture above. If not, I give you the following list.

• A rice cake
• A scrambled egg
• A slice of Pepper Jack cheese
• Fresh guacamole
• Chopped tomatos
• Freshly ground black pepper

Potential customizations include, but are not limited to:
• Replace the rice cake with a pita or slice of toasted bread.
• Use your favorite cheese, or forgo it completely.
• Mix onions into the egg before you scramble it.
• Add a slice of green pepper.
• Sprinkle some Cayenne pepper on top.

I mean, have at it.

Question: What is your go-to quick, healthy meal?
