Fried eggs + salad = pretty much every weekend breakfast for me ever.

Okay maybe not every one ever… (case in point – I do sometimes go for pancakes, too). But it is my go-to, tried and true breakfast for whenever I have more time than to make a smoothie or grab a couple of hard boiled eggs.

So every Friday when I stock up my refrigerator for the weekend I alllllways make sure I have eggs and salad ingredients. It’s seriously the easiest most versatile breakfast that I am never not in the mood for. It’s healthy, quick, and very delicious (<– the most important things).

And while I don’t usually like to tell people what to do, I definitely think you guys should give the formula a try this weekend 😉 The beauty of it is in the delicious simplicity. Salad of your favorite seasonal ingredients + fried eggs is an equation that never tastes bad.

Okay guys. It’s the weekend. Let’s talk granola.

Love it? Hate it? Have a favorite brand? Ever tried making it?

Sorry that was a lot of questions. Hope I didn’t scare you away. Bear with me! This topic is worth a chat.

Homemade granola is something I make on a super regular basis for the family that I work for. It’s one of those pantry essentials that’s as necessary to have stocked as milk and eggs. So I’ve really gotten the whole granola making thing down, and trust me, it’s not half as hard as you think it is.

BUT, while I do occasionally eat oats if they’re gluten free, I just feel better if I avoid them, or at least have them in moderation. And you and I both know that for better or for worse, when it’s good, granola is not one of those things that you eat in moderation. Am I right?

If it’s on my counter, I’m gonna eat it every morning for breakfast. Either straight up with almond milk and some fresh berries, or sprinkled over my smoothie (so good. go try it.) Especially if it’s this easy dark chocolate paleo grain free granola.

Because granola with oats is not the only option! Paleo friendly grain free granola is totally a thing and it is totally worth trying.

what is grain free granola?

 

In short, grain free granola is granola without any grains! (duhh of course you knew that) Let’s get a little bit more specific.

While granola has kind of become synonymous with grains, this version subs in nuts and seeds for the grains creating a more nutrient dense and deeply satisfying alternative. It’s held together and sweetened with almond butter and maple syrup, and spiced up with some vanilla extract, cinnamon, and chocolate.

More nutrients and it will keep you full longer? Sign me UP!

Bulletproof pumpkin pie spice latte! A perfectly indulgent and healthy way to get in the spirit of fall and supercharge your morning coffee routine.
 
First, let’s talk bulletproof coffee.

Are you guys on the train yet? If not, boy are you in for a lovely surprise.

Creamy, indulgent, full of healthy fats, and the perfect fuel to start your day off right.

Here’s what you’ll LOVE about bulletproof coffee:

 

  • The solid boost of energy that it gives you. One cup and your morning energy will feel stable and steady all the way until your first meal of the day.
  • The indulgence of a rich, creamy coffee that gets more nourishing fat into your diet.
  • An increased level of mental clarity – our brains are made up of about 60% fat, saturated fat being one of the main components of brain cells, making healthy fats an important part of keeping them functioning at a high level.

I’ve been bulletproofing my mornings for at least a couple of years, but only recently did I start playing around with a variety of flavors to keep things interesting. I have a good solid 6 or so that I rotate to keep things fresh, and.. get excited! I’m planning on sharing them all with you over the next few months 🙌🏼

Bulletproof coffee = really good.

Bulletproof coffee + fun flavor combos = infinitely better.
