Tiger Prawns with Scrambled Egg White on Toast

The American Dietetic Association (ADA) has confirmed that breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. “Eating breakfast (within an hour of rising) is very important for the brain and the body,” says Gail Frank, dietitian and ADAspokesperson. “People who skip breakfast often feel tired, restless or irritable in the morning.”
After eight to 12 hours without food, breakfast is the first chance your body has to refuel its glucose levels, which is essential for the brain and is its main energy source. Blood glucose also helps fuel the muscles needed for physical activity throughout the day.

You Need
1 slice wholemeal bread, toasted
4 eggs (only their white)
6 medium tiger prawns
1 sprig Spring onions, chopped
Salt and pepper

You Do
1 Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Saute the prawns. Remove them when they turn pink.

2 Turn the heat down to low, then add the egg white and season with salt and pepper.
Scramble the egg white, making sure not to overcook them.

3 Pour the egg white onto the toasted bread, sprinkle the spring onions, and arrange the prawns on top, serve.

Makes one serving.
