Saturday Morning and a Light Breakfast

This morning’s breakfast was excellent.

Cooking breakfast at home is something that takes place only on the weekends. During the week I have to be in the drive to work by 5am, so I will just cook myself something when I get there. I have weekends off and usually can never sleep past 8am πŸ™„. I’ll get out of bed, turn on the Keurig, and make breakfast. 

Breakfast is usually a refresher for me. A way for my body to wake up and cleanse. I’m usually eating out the previous night, so I make something with a lot of fiber, protein, but also light. I will make pancakes or muffins sometimes, but usually it will have to be a very special occasion, or…a serious craving. 

This morning I chose eggs, a salad, turkey bacon, and avocado. Black coffee and water for beverages. 

  
The greens have a simple drizzle of olive oil and lemon, with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. I cooked the turkey bacon until crispy to give the greens a bit of a crunch. 

I detest whole eggs (I’m an egg white only girl), but I am eating extra protein for maintaining muscle. Usually I will throw something in the eggs as an attempt to mask the sulfuric smell and texture of the yolk. Today I threw in a few sprigs of fresh dill. I didn’t chop with a knife, just pulling them off the sprig. This added a fresh, clean flavor to the eggs.

Last is the avocado. Surprisingly sweet for this time of year, I just ate it out of the skin. 

Along with a cup of organic, dark Jane (female equivalent to cup of Joe) I was set. I drink black coffee-no sugar or cream-to enjoy the natural state of coffee. I am sure that a lot of you have never truly tasted coffee due to it being heavily polluted with flavored creamers and sugars. 

No recipe to post today. 

Just wanted you to sit back and think about what you want for breakfast this morning. It doesn’t always have to be heavy to be filling. 

Some times lighter is better.
