A little about Playa Zipolite, The Beach of the Dead . . .

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. A little bit about my favorite little get-away on this small world of ours.

Zipolite, a sweaty 30-minute walk west from Puerto Angel, brings you to Playa Zipolite and another world. The feeling here is 1970's - Led Zep, Marley, and scruffy gringos.

A long, long time ago, Zipolite beach was usually visited by the Zapotecans...who made it a magical place. They came to visit Zipolite to meditate, or just to rest.

Recently, this beach has begun to receive day-trippers from Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, giving it a more TOURISTY feel than before.

Most people come here for the novelty of the nude beach, yoga, turtles, seafood, surf, meditation, vegetarians, discos, party, to get burnt by the sun, or to see how long they can stretch their skinny budget.

I post WWW Oaxaca, Mexico, Zipolite and areas nearby information. Also general budget, backpacker, surfer, off the beaten path, Mexico and beyond, information.

REMEMBER: Everyone is welcome at Zipolite.

How to Cook a Healthy Mexican Power Breakfast

Here in Mexico, we’re very fond of having breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day! This is how to make a nutritious, Mexican breakfast.

There’s nothing better than waking up to the smell of Mexican breakfast cooking. Warm eggs, hot coffee, fresh tortillas, black beans, sweet fruit, and some yummy, spicy salsa.
You don’t think salsa and beans are breakfast foods? I assure you they are, and very healthy ones too!
A healthy and energizing Mexican breakfast has protein (eggs and beans), fiber (beans and fruit), healthy carbs (corn tortillas), and a good dose of vitamins (salsa). And coffee. Every breakfast should have coffee.
This time, we’re going to make this breakfast even healthier by adding veggies to it. You can be sure this meal will keep you energized through a long, busy morning.

Ready? Let’s cook!

Healthy Mexican Power Breakfast

First, you’re going to need half a cup of diced, cooked green beans.
What do you mean you’ve never had green beans for breakfast? They’re delicious!
I usually do some meal prep and always have diced, cooked green beans stored in my fridge for the week. Why? To make breakfast, of course!
Now, we’re going to saute the green beans with diced onion a dash of salt.
When the onion is transparent, add two beaten eggs. This will make two servings.
Cook the eggs over medium heat until they’re done. Easy, isn’t it?
Finally, serve the eggs with some Mexican black beans on the side, and add a tablespoon of nice, hot salsa.
Warm a couple of corn tortillas and serve them on the side. Mexicans like to spoon their eggs and beans with tortillas or make some quick tacos with them.
I like to have some diced papaya for breakfast instead of a glass of orange juice, but you can have whatever you like best. Just make sure you also include fruit.
Finish everything with a cup of hot coffee. In case you didn’t know, Mexico produces world-class coffee, mostly from the provinces of Veracruz, Chiapas, and Guerrero. But in case you want to take the healthier road, you can have a cup of green tea.
But most importantly, you must sit down and take your time to have breakfast. In Mexico, families like to sit down together to at least one meal.
How often do you actually sit down to eat with the family without looking at your cell phone or the TV? That’s what I’m talking about.
Let’s make it our goal to sit down and enjoy a healthy, power breakfast at least a couple of times a week. What do you say?
