A Whole30 Breakfast :: simple & delicious

finished-the-w30-IG-300x300My Whole30 adventure is over.  But that certainly doesn’t mean that the good eats are gone.  I’m carrying a lot of things with me into days 31 and beyond.  And breakfast is one of those things.

I am not the breakfast type.  Yes, I know it should be the most important meal of the day & a good breakfast is the key to health & people who lose weight & keep it off generally eat breakfast.  blah, blah, blah, blah.  I have been hit with these awful breakfast pick up lines so often in my adult life that I have actually taken to lying on occasion just to avoid the breakfast statistical botherings.  Yes, I know lying is a sin & Jesus and I are dealing with it.  Promise.  But breakfast is really not that important to me. I have survived all these years without it.  And I’ve been doing just fine.

Enter Whole30.  Breakfast is a rule.  And we have established already how I feel about rules.  So breakfast I did eat.

But what does one eat who doesn’t normally eat breakfast?  And what if that person would usually reach for a piece of toast with butter & jam?  Ugh.

Hello eggs.  Ok, I realize as I type you likely are sitting there reading thinking, “wait a cotton-picking minute – she’s an egg farmer.”  True.  I am an egg farmer.  I love my pasture-roaming chickens and the amazing eggs they daily lay.  But I haven’t usually been the one to eat them.  Especially at breakfast time.  But that all changed.  And I am now an egg enjoying breakfast eating gal.

Eggs are pretty simple.  My favorite way to eat them is over-easy, cooked in coconut oil rather than butter.  But scramble them, hard boil them, cook them sunny side up…you get the idea.  I enjoyed mine with cauliflower crumble {available at Target} or grated sweet potatoes cooked lightly in avocado or coconut oil.  On the side, I enjoyed half a thinly sliced avocado.  So quick to whip up.  About the same time as it takes for my bread to pop up out of the toaster.  That’s good stuff!  Delicious, in fact.  The best thing I’ve ever eaten.  Absolutely…not.  I can’t lie.  It’s no onion ring stack with a side of tartar sauce, but it is a pretty amazing way to start the day.  No kidding.  Bon Appétit!
