    Breakfast!

    I'm looking for breakfast ideas, so hoping you can spam me with your favorites or just what you're eating today/this week.

    I've found that I need to have protein and fat in the morning, IF hasn't worked for me so far unless it's unintentional (like oversleeping on a weekend). But I'm also slow getting started in the morning and have a long commute, so I try to cook things on the weekend and reheat during the week.

    Here is what I pre-made for this week:
    Bacon
    Cut up fruit
    Eggs scrambled with zucchini, red pepper, carrots, flaxseed meal, and grainy mustard, in coconut oil
    Hash of sweet potatoes, onions, and leftover porkchops, diced up and cooked in bacon fat

    stir fry (veges + meat)
    soup (veges + meat)

    I like 2 eggs on the bed of egg whites with a fresh veggie, like a cucumber.
    If I have leftover salmon, I'll eat that, because I can eat salmon for every meal.
    On a carb-up day, I like quark with tomato or cucumber/radish+dill.
    Crab meat and egg white sometimes for a souffle-like thinggie.
    If I had good broth, hot broth with some meat (beef) or a couple of eggs poached in it makes a great breakfast.

    I make these on the weekend and freeze them, then have a couple for breakfast. They heat well in the microwave!


    Breakfast Mushroom Egg Cups

    2 T butter plus more to butter pan (or use bacon grease)
    4 oz sliced mushrooms
    c chopped yellow onion
    9 thin round slices of ham
    1/3 c shredded Cheddar cheese
    6 large eggs, beaten

    Preheat oven to 375F. Grease 9 medium-size cups of muffin pan; set aside.

    Melt butter in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 4 minutes or until onion is tender; set aside.

    Line each muffin cup with a slice of ham, with edge just above rim of pan. Spoon mushroom mixture evenly into ham-lined cups. Top each evenly with cheese. Pour beaten eggs evenly over mushrooms and cheese.

    Bake 15-20 minutes or until knife inserted in centers comes out clean. Let stand in pan 2 minutes. Run table knife around edge of cups to loosen.

    Makes 9.

    I just made stuffed tomatoes over the weekend. scoop out a tomato- it doesn't have to be clean, just enough room for a T or 2 of pesto (I have a lot of basil, so plenty of pesto on hand) and then crack an egg into it. I sprinkle it with a little parmesan and then bake it at 350 for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how runny I want my yolk. I made 4 for 2 of us and they were out of this world.

    Honestly, I eat anything for breakfast - dinner leftovers, a can of tuna, or "normal" breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, etc.). It's all fair game to me.

    On Saturday I made a pretty good breakfast of the 2-minute coconut bread with lemon juice and lemon zest added to the batter, split it in half and topped it with an apple cooked in butter and cinnamon, and topped all of that with home-made coconut cream. Slightly higher carb than my usual first meal of the day, but I had a 14-mile bike ride ahead of me so I wanted a bit of a boost!

    But, really, breakfast (or any meal for that matter) is only limited if you let it! Think outside the box. I eat "breakfast for dinner" all the time, and leftovers for breakfast, too. Just eat what you're in the mood for!

    Stop thinking of it as breakfast, and start thinking of it as "First Meal". A whole world opens up when you don't limit the foods to a certain time of day. This morning I had a phenomenal caprese egg bake!

    Your body isn't going to recognize bacon and eggs at 8a and say to itself "Oh, bacon and eggs? It must be breakfast!" It's just going to go, "Sweet. Food! Let's par-tay!"

    I concur.

    First Meal for me is usually late morning/noonish, and might be eggs or a can of tuna with a salad of tomatoes, cuke and avocado, but its just as likely to be leftovers from dinner the night before.
