(Chicken) Sausage & Eggs

Last morning I’ll be making a breakfast like this for awhile…

  
Tomorrow marks the first day back for PD for the new school year! Second year teaching & moving to second grade!!!

I’m super excited, and love that we go back before the kids, because I end up feeling much more prepared for the school year & closer with my coworkers. But I also enjoy relaxing morning spent sipping tea/coffee :-/

When I do have the time, this is my favorite way to enjoy my eggs.

I heat up coconut oil, then cook up the whole egg…But what I’m left with after eating is this:  

 
Shhh, but I don’t eat the yolks🙈

Since I wouldn’t use the yolks in other foods I make, it is a bit of a waste…But #1-I prefer my eggs made from whole eggs, not the cartain of egg whites, when I eat them like this (otherwise I will use just whites) and #2-I enjoy getting hints of the yolk in my whites without having to eat much of it. And #3-Its way easier than if I separated them as i put the eggs in the pan!

And then I wanted to really pump up the protein, so why not have a chicken sausage😍 Love them!

Whats your favorite lazy morning breakfast? And if when you work you have busy mornings, whats your favorite on the go breakfast?

2 Minute Breakfast

  

  Here’s the deal…

If you’re like me, on workdays you get up at the crack of dawn, want to get in as much sleep as possible, and hate the thought of having extra crap to do before work, even if that extra crap is making breakfast.

I’ll admit to stopping at Dunkin Donuts, which of course, is right around the corner from me…and grabbing some non-nutritious, toxic-if you really look at the ingredients, egg white sandwich & coffee. $6 later I’m off to work, with at least a 5 minute detor, and end up naturally hungry again within the next 60-90 minutes.

Yuck! 

One solution can be meal prepping your breakfasts in advance. Egg white/egg “muffins” with protein and veggies, or overnight oats are great options that’ll only take you about 15 mins to prepare for the next day. Much better than that coffee shop temptation.

But what if you want to save even more time?

SHAKEOLOGY!!!!

I am so happy I’ve gotten back into drinking this superfood powerhouse each morning. And best of all, it takes maybe 2 mins to make!

I do the following:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen strawberries
  • Handful ice
  • 1 scoop Shakeology
  • Unsweetened almond milk

Throw it all into a blender, blend, and GO!

  
And really best of all, the nutrition:

  • Ingredients derived from whole-food sources deliver the daily vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs to curb cravings, allowing it to shed stored fat.
  • Over 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.
  • Fiber, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes help your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently and promote better absorption of nutrients.
  • Protein and essential amino acids help build muscles and reduce food cravings.
  • Prebiotics and digestive enzymes aid in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption.
  • Antioxidants and phytonutrients help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases.
  • A daily dose of vitamins and minerals provides your body what it needs to function for optimal health.

AND you aren’t left feeling hungry an hour later!!!
