Breakfast Special

Hi there! I thought rather than doing multiple separate posts, I’d share a collection of some of my delicious breakfast’s over the past few weeks. It’s funny because the first time we had a “snow day”, it was great because we could work from home and I could actually take the time to make myself a delicious breakfast. However, after the 3rd or 4th time of working from home, it got old very quickly. When you’re stuck inside all day, in a small space, with an endless pantry…let’s just say it can leave you slightly crazy by the time 3PM rolls around.

Anyhow, if you haven’t already gotten the sense, breakfast IS EASILY my FAVORITE meal of the day. I literally LIVEEE for easy Sunday mornings, where I can brew my cup of hazelnut coffee, take my time to cook up whatever breakfast I crave, stay in my sweats until noon, and spend hours on pinterest and blogs…

And if I’m not at home cooking my own breakfast, than you’ll likely find me exploring a new breakfast/brunch spot because WHY NOT? : )

Check out below for what I’ve been cooking up lately in the kitchen…

Ingredients:

– 2 Slices of Ezekiel bread
– 1 egg, 2 egg whites
– 2 TBSP unsweetened vanilla almond milk
– Cinnamon to taste
– 2 Drops of Vanilla Stevia
– 2 TBSP of Coconut Oil (acts as a butter replacement as well)
– Optional: Shredded Coconut, Fresh Berries, Pure Maple Syrup

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together your eggs, almond milk, cinnamon, and vanilla stevia. Meanwhile, begin to heat up your pan with the coconut oil. Dip your 2 slices into the bowl and cover well, then add to the stove. Leave it on med/high heat, but continue to watch so that the edges are just lightly browned. While those are cooking (should only need about 2.5 minutes or less on each side), slice your fresh fruit to top.
