Breakfast. For me it's usually an on-the-go meal. A granola bar. Some yogurt. A bacon egg and cheese from the deli. Don't get me wrong - I love all those things! - but it's nice to have a nutritious home-cooked breakfast once in a while.
A poached egg is a must. 9 times out of 10 I plan my meal around that (the other time it's a fried egg). Now add some dark leafy baby greens, white miso, and tomato and you got yourself a delicious, nutritious breakfast!
Maybe poaching an egg seems like a daunting task for you. Or maybe it seems odd to have the makings of a salad for breakfast instead of lunch. But if you don't give this a shot you are seriously missing out!
Admittedly, I messed it up a little bit. I watered my miso down a *tad* too much. I hadn't poached an egg in months so I was a little rusty. Maybe you'll mess it up, maybe you'll do it better than I did. But this is all fine because it still tasted great, looked great, and served its purpose as a satisfying first meal of the day.
I originally added 3 teaspoons of water to my miso and I should have left it at 2 teaspoons (as I advise in the below recipe). The water for poaching the egg was on a bit too strong which made the desired smooth appearance go out the door (and again I will advise you correctly in the recipe below). You will not do these things. Or you might. Either way it's fine.

Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
