5:2 Green Eggs And Ham

Eggs are a key part of my 5:2 meals.  At only 70 calories each, with egg white even less, their versatility and ease of cooking make them a must-have staple in my kitchen.

I made this scramble on a non-fast day, but it would work well on fast days too.  The cheese and avocado can be omitted for even fewer calories.

egg scramble with ham and brocolli


1 cup Leftover cooked broccoli – 30

1 egg – 70

2 egg whites – 30

2 slices ham- 60

1/4 avocado – 40

20g hard cheese – 70

Total: Approx 300 calories and 30g protein.  Low carb.

Chop the brocoli into bite-sized pieces and place in a microwave bowl.  Blast for 30 seconds to warm it through.  In the same bowl add in the chopped avocado, and the ham, torn or cut into small pieces.  Break an egg and 2 egg whites into the bowl, and mix well.  Add some black pepper to taste.  Cook in the microwave for 1 minute, keeping an eye on it and stirring if needed.  Check that it’s solidifying nicely, but not too much.  Dot the cheese in thin slivers over the top, and microwave for a further 30 seconds to melt the cheese.

Spinach would work well in this too, and keep the “green eggs” theme.
