easy chorizo and asparagus scramble {paleo}

How is it already Monday, again?! I’ve been meaning to get this post out to you all for a little while, but I’ve needed some time to do stuff around the house that desperately needed my attention (read: the big office clean out!). The good news is the office is allllmost done, and I’ve finally found some time to sit my booty down at my newly clean desk (yay!) and write about this delicious scramble! I’m not sure what’s been in the air lately, but I’ve been super into quick and healthy scrambles. And this easy chorizo and asparagus scramble has been a frequent star at our breakfast show.

Made with only 5 ingredients, this easy chorizo and asparagus scramble is a breakfast hero. Plus it's healthy, quick and SUPER easy to make!
 
In truth, i’ve always considered myself to be much more of a fried egg person.

Do you have a strong preference one way or the other?

Fried is still usually the way that I order ’em when we go out for brunch (except for maybe the ham scramble at Rockcreek here in Seattle! It’s SO GOOD. I could eat those eggs every dang weekend).

But lately, at home, I’ve been into scrambles. Flavorful, veggie packed, healthy, easy breeezy scrambles.

Paleo cherry strawberry crisp is the perfect simple and healthy summer treat. Free of grains, refined sugar, and processed vegetable oils, it will nourish your summer bod from the inside out!


 
There’s something about a fresh fruit crisp that is the very epitome of summer dessert charm. It’s a simple + humble treat that, when paired with a scoop of creamy (in this case, dairy free) vanilla ice cream is like the cherry on top of a perfect summer day. 

We’ve been doing a lot of that simple cooking these days as the light ebbs long into the evening hours (although we are on the other side of that trend now, it will still be awhile before we’re eating dinner in the dark).

Dinners on our deck with the cool evening breeze are embraced as often as possible, usually with a glass of rosé (for me) and a cold beer (for him) in hand. And when you top off some sublime al fresco dining with a bowl of fresh paleo cherry strawberry crisp, we’re talking pretty near perfection as far as simple home feasting is concerned.

They are loaded UP with all the antioxidant rich ingredients to fuel whatever activities you have planned for the weekend.

I hadn’t really gotten on the smoothie bowl train yet (I know I know… what have I been doing with my life?!), until after I started kicking my exercise routine up a notch over the last couple of weeks with the help of this awesome app called aaptiv. Have you guys tried it? It’s pretty life changing! It’s like having a personal trainer with you throughout your whole workout, with music that’s timed to the intensity of the run/strength train/yoga sesh. I’m not usually the most motivated runner – okay honestly I’ve NEVER even so much as liked running, but I have gone on TWELVE runs in the last two weeks!

Not like I’m counting or anything…

I might kinda feel like a rockstar?

I just never thought I would feel the way I do about running. Which says a lot for their program.

If you’ve been looking for something to turbo charge your at home or gym workout routine I would definitely recommend checking it out! There’s something about getting your body in motion that feels so GOOD. 

So one thing that I’ve been trying to focus on in addition to getting my sweat on is fueling my body with the right stuff after the working out is done. 

It’s a pretty important piece of the puzzle, right?

I made this smoothie base a couple of times post workout and it turned out so luscious and creamy. I was IN LOVE. And since it was on the thicker side I thought; let’s just go ahead and make this love official and turn it into a smoothie bowl.

Smoothie bowl = a smoothie that’s all grown up and has it’s life figured out. 

This bowl knows how to get you glowing from the inside out, and in only 5 minutes!
