Breakfast in a cup

Looking for a quick breakfast or snack that won't involve making a big mess in the kitchen? I recently tried out (and adapted slightly) a recipe for "scrambled eggs in a mug" that I found on the Iowa State University Extension page. It was indeed quick and easy and would be a great part of a nutrient-rich snack, or part of breakfast for a child!

Scrambled Eggs in a Mug

You will need:
1 egg and 1 egg white
1 Tablespoon skim milk
1-2 Tablespoons salsa (optional)
1 Tablespoon lowfat shredded cheese (optional)

Spray the inside of a microwave-safe mug with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour the egg, egg white and milk into the mug. Beat well.
Cover with waxed paper and microwave on full power for 45 seconds.
Stir. Cook 30 seconds more.
Stir in salsa and cheese if using.
