Weird Breakfast!

Lately I’ve been eating more sweet potatoes and sometimes I feel like eating them for breakfast!

For my sweet potatoes, I cut them up and leave the skin on for more nutrients. Then I boil them for about 10 minutes to soften them a bit. After I strain the water from them, I add my spices to it, which varies depending on how I feel for that day lol!

Today I added a very small sprinkle of pink Himalayan salt, cayenne pepper because I like spicy, roasted black sesame seeds, and chopped up dill! It is so delicious!

With my sweet potatoes, I had some of a green smoothie that I made the other day. Here are the ingredients:

Banana, carrots, pear, kale, capful of apple cider vinegar, hemp seeds, and water. This green smoothie is the bomb!

Have you eaten sweet potatoes for breakfast?

Egg Muffins w/Bacon For Breakfast On The Go!

The mornings can be so hectic that we don’t have time to eat a good, healthy breakfast and we end up grabbing a fast breakfast that may be full of carbs, sugar, salt, or preservatives!

Here is a quick and very easy recipe for a healthy, on the go breakfast option!

Ingredients:

-6 eggs

-3 pieces of bacon (crumbled)

-Seasonings: sea salt, ground black pepper, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, or any other seasonings you’d like to use

-Chopped green peppers, red peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and green onions. Feel free to add any other veggies you’d like to add

-Shredded cheese; I used mozzarella

Directions:

-Crack 6 eggs in a bowl, add seasonings, and scramble together.

-Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups and spray pam in each cup.

-Add chopped vegetables and crumbled bacon to each muffin cup.

-Pour the scrambled egg mixture slowly into each muffin cup until all the egg mixture has been used.

-Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Set oven to 400 degrees and let bake for 25-30 minutes.

-Check the middle with a toothpick and if it’s still a little gooey in the middle, it needs more time. When the center is set and the muffins are puffy, they are done cooking. Once they’re done cooking they are ready to eat!

You can eat these egg muffins right away with salsa or by itself. Or you can store them in a covered container in the fridge for about 1 week. To eat, just reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and enjoy!

Make these egg muffins and eat on the go for a healthy breakfast packed with veggies and protein to stay full all morning!

I made scrambled tofu for breakfast with waffles, a side of tomatoes with hummus, and orange juice!

Here’s the scrambled tofu recipe!

1 teaspoon of coconut oil

1 block of firm tofu (soft tofu will work too)

1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

A few chopped red onions, scallions, red peppers 

Directions: 

1. Add oil to medium non stick pan. Add in red onions, scallions, and red peppers and cook on medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

2. Crumble tofu into the pan, add seasonings, and mix together.
