Breakfast egg cups

When I eat healthy I wake up STARVING. Stomach growling, the whole 9 yards. So it’s 7am and I’m making egg breakfast cups. Basically the same breakfast I eat every morning into a nice little muffin cup. This is a good raid your fridge for leftover stuff meal too.

Ingredients:

* 2 slices of turkey bacon. Cut in half and then cut each one into thirds. They line the outside of the cups.
* 4 eggs
* some spinach
* chopped tomato
* chopped mushrooms
* seasoning

I lined the bottom of the muffin pans with spinach, then out the slices of turkey bacon to line each one. Fill with chopped tomato and mushrooms. Beat 4-5 eggs together and pour on top.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.

I put a little avocado on top and they were great!

Paleo Mashed Garlic Cauliflower “Potatoes”

cauliI can’t believe I have never made these. They are so easy and I almost fooled Joe into thinking they were actually potatoes! I made his favorite dish tonight. Meatloaf, mashed “potatoes” and green beans with cherry tomatoes and bacon. The green bean recipe is on here somewhere and I need to post the meatloaf still. But this side dish could almost fool anyone!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2-3 tablespoons of chives
  • tablespoon of butter
  • salt/pepper

1. Take the cauliflower and cut it into little pieces. Throw that along with the garlic cloves into a steamer pot and steam until really tender.

2. Put your steamed cauliflower along with your garlic into a food processor along with the butter, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy smooth.

3. Transfer to a bowl and add your chopped chives and you are good to go!

I was surprised how similar they taste to regular mashed potatoes, same consistency and wtih the garlic and butter- same taste!

Kale crisps

Well everyone always talks about how great Kale crisps are so since I order the vegi in a box every couple of weeks (www.tarafarms.com) I usually get kale in it and never really know what to do besides throw it in a salad.

This is really easy. And surprisingly good!

Ingredients:

  • Bunch Of Kale
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the kale into bite size pieces. Make sure to cut out the spine of the kale because I didn’t and when you chomp into one, bitter!

Place on a cookie sheet, mix with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until nice and crispy. These were actually really good! Note the pictures I couldn’t get one without my BF hand in it!
