Well hello there. Where to begin? I’m not actually sure to be honest. I’ve been scheming and dreaming about starting a healthy living blog for quite some time, but writing the first post is proving to be a bit daunting! Let’s start with breakfast, shall we? After all, it was pretty photos of oatmeal, omelettes and stacked pancakes that sucked me into reading HLBs in the first place! (Healthy Tipping Point and KathEats I’m lookin’ at you.)
And really, how can you go wrong with eggs? Green eggs at that! Aren’t they purty? Our food editor at work was sent a bunch from Pete & Gerry’s Heirloom Eggs and she shared them with the staff. I’m pretty certain I was the first one digging around in the office fridge to claim my half dozen. I wish I could tell you that these special eggs contained supernatural nutritional powers, but the color is simply due to the selective breed of hens that hatches them.
The yolks are so vibrant! And yep, I eat the yolks—that’s the best part. Not only are they tasty, but they are packed with so many nutrients! (Much, much more than their white counterpart.) My favorite way to eat them is fried just like this. I heat a pan on high for about about a minute, so when I crack the egg right into it, it solidifies immediately and isn’t sliding all over. (Hate it when that happens!)
Before I get started on my eggs though, I put all of my smoothie ingredients in the blender: 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup milk + handful of spinach+ half frozen banana + spoonful of almond butter + handful of frozen blueberries and strawberries. Everyone thinks that smoothies are such hard work, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Pour, chop, dump, blend, done. Sure, it takes a little prep work and planning, but it is worth it!
Tell me: What’s your favorite go-to breakfast?
(Phew, I made it through my first post! How’d I do?!)
