|1/4 cup||Mint or Cilantro, finely chopped|
|10||Cherry Tomatoes, halved|
|1 tbsp||Butter or Olive Oil|
|2||English Muffins, halved (optional)|

- Season tomatoes in a bowl with a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of olive oil and some of the fresh herbs. Set aside.
- For the avocado sauce, place everything in a blender or food processor and puree until creamy. Add more liquid if necessary to get a desired dressing consistency.
- For your eggs, add butter or olive oil to a skillet over medium high heat.
- Whisk eggs really in a bowl until airy. Season with some salt, add your green onion and fresh herbs.
- Add to your hot pan. Stir gently with a spatula bringing the mixture together to create folds.
- When the eggs are still slightly runny, remove the pan from the heat.
- Place a spoonful of tomatoes on your English muffin, top with some of the scrambled eggs, and cover with a little of the avocado dressing. Serve.
- Is your mouth dry? Dry mouth (xerostomia) is a common side effect of radiation treatment to the head or neck. For most people, it will slowly improve within a few weeks or months after treatment. In some cases, the feeling of dry mouth may never go away completely. To help, choose soft and moist foods such as stews, soups, puddings or yogurts.
- No rules, eat whenever! Eating enough protein can sometimes be challenging especially when dealing with difficulties chewing and swallowing. There are no rules about when to eat. So, if breakfast foods like frittata or scrambled eggs are well tolerated, prepare them for lunch or dinner! Two large eggs provide 12 grams of high quality protein, which help build antibodies and repair muscles. And, they give you 100% of your daily requirement of vitamin B12, which helps protect against heart disease.
- Did you know? Avocados can be subbed for butter in a hollandaise sauce to get a creamy and better-for-you version. Each serving of an avocado, 1/3 medium (50 g), contributes 5 grams of monounsaturated and 1 g polyunsaturated fats to your diet. These are “good” fats that help raise “good” HDL cholesterol and reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol, which may help lower the risk of heart disease. They’re also loaded with folate, a B vitamin that may reduce the risk of some types of cancers.
