Anyone who truly knows me or follows this blog attests to the fact that I LIVE for breakfasts! I dream of opening an all-day breakfast restaurant with my mother and sister, and I certainly look forward to being my favorite customer! LAUGH OUT LOUD!
have become PRE-TTY unbearable these days but I love a GOOD meal! More importantly, I love that good food CAN be made with all-natural, authentically sourced ingredients. I believe our bodies are temples of God and it is very critical that we invest in our bodies and take proactive part in our overall health – be it Spiritually, Physically, Mentally or Emotionally.
Yes, we all have ‘cheat days’ and such, but it’s time to make junk food and modern medicine our absolute last resort, and stick to what The Creator -in all His wisdom- has given us for our upkeep. When you read (even the LEAST) on the benefits of nature’s medicine, it’s almost laughable what modern medicine has turned us into.
I happen to be whole food, plant-based (by choice!) and loving every bit of it. However, [although that doesn’t sound so shabby! ;)] I am not as concerned about turning everyone around me to my side of life, as I am with encouraging people make the right choice when it comes to food.
I look forward to the days when we are all as addicted to REAL food, as we are to the ‘food-like’ products we eat these days.
I was raised by a mother who was (and still is) all for the homemade. When everyone else had lunch money back in school, we were the kids who carried lunch bags ALL the days of our school life!!?. If you wanted pizza, Mother got you. Ice cream? Mother got you. Burger? Mother got you! There was LITERALLY no way out?. This was our reality. We grew up with ‘homemade first, restaurants as last option/ on special occasions’. Greens were not a matter of preference; they were a part of our meals. My mother would always say ‘finish that food because the dogs have their own food!’ laugh out loud! Although the trend of eating out got to us at some point,- some a lot more than others- homemade is still the best food (my siblings) and I know.
Before I moved out for school, I was responsible for packing my niece’s lunch; and it was my favorite morning activity! I looked forward to making her breakfast and packing her lunch every morning like she was going on a field trip. Everything you will ever need is right in that lunch bag?.There is no excuse to want to buy food baby. I’m talking several homemade snacks; 1st, 2nd and 3rd lunches for whatever could happen at school. Talk about foresight!? When I realized she was coveting other kids’ lunches, I learned to ask for her input on what she would like to have and then make a healthy, homemade version. The goal is to make whole foods, yes; but also make what our loved ones actually enjoy!
So, in the spirit of making GREAT choices for our bodies, I’m sharing a dreamy-absolutely healthy-low carb-easy on your pocket- breakfast recipe inspired by one of the many blogs I follow. If it meets the above criteria, you know I am definitely here for that!
I have no idea what to call it so let’s just move right along!
-One slice of bread. (I used sourdough bread, but feel free to work with what you have – whole wheat, if possible)
-1/4 cup chopped onions
-1/2 cup sliced mushrooms. ( I used portobello mushrooms)
-1/2 tsp of black pepper
-one half of an avocado (mashed)
2 tablespoons + 1tsp of oil ( I used avocado oil. Work with what you have but please try to stick with healthier options like coconut oil 🙂 )
Toast the bread lightly and spread mashed avo on it.
Heat oil in a frying pan. Add onions and stir fry for about a minute, then add sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle black pepper. Cook on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes until mushrooms are tender and all water evaporated. Layer bread and mashed avos with sautéed onions and mushrooms.
Again, heat a teaspoon of oil, fry slightly beaten egg. I don’t do (and wouldn’t advise sunny side up because… #salmonella).
P.S : Clearly, I cooked without salt and it tasted amazing! Butttt, apparently my palates are on a different level so cook with salt if preferred.
I enjoyed my breakfast with some fruits (mangoes and strawberries) and homemade carrot juice [carrots, apples, ginger and dates ->(as a sweetener since I am refined sugar free!)] 🙂
Trust me, you will finish this in 2 minutes!!! It’s THAT good!
