POACHED EGGS & TOMATO MEDLEY SALAD

I have to admit that I'm not the best when it comes to poaching eggs. My yolks were a little overcooked, but I am grateful that at least they didn't end up falling apart like they usually do. Well, you know what they say - practice makes perfect so I will keep trying! I got a beautiful bunch of colourful tomatoes the other day and thought they would make the perfect tomato medley salad with some spinach and alfafa sprouts. Everyone knows that tomatoes are full of vitamins and antixidants, but they are also an outstanding source of lycopene, which is a cancer-fighting chemical that is hugely beneficial to your health. Did you know there are literally hundreds of varieties of tomatoes which all differ according to their shapes, colours, flavours and textures? I definitely wouldn't mind trying them all. On a side note, I'm sure you guys will all agree that literally everything tastes better with delicious creamy avocados packed full of vitamins, potassium and healthy unsaturated fats. So treat yourselves with generous helpings of avos for shiny hair and glowing skin. The ingredients for today's breakfast are listed below. I hope you enjoy!
