Sometimes you just have to escape the city. The pavement gets too hot, the hustle and bustle becomes suffocating, and no matter where you go, you are never truly alone. So when my dear friend Paige invited my girlfriends and me up to her lake house for the weekend, I was packed before she could even send over the address.
I love throwing a bunch of things into a bowl, topping them with a fried egg and calling it breakfast. Recently- I was in Phoenix for a much overdue vacation, and while I was there I had some damn tasty Mexican food. So, when I got back and did my weekly grocery shop, I was inspired to plan a week’s worth of Mexican inspired brekkie.
Yes the title of this post is supposed to make you laugh, and yes, believe it or not this has been one of my most requested posts since I started blogging. That and a meal plan, but first things first! Let’s start with the most important meal of the day, shall we? Breakfast- it can make or break your morning, and I’m not talking about leaving you hungry. I can’t tell you how many times rushing to get out the door has caused me to burn my eggs, crack eggs on the floor, and say “screw it” to eggs and grab a granola bar or even worse… nothing at all. Then there are those other mornings that #workfromhomelife reminds me that I can indeed whip up something delicious and nutritious in a matter of minutes- it just requires a little patience and a little rhythm, something I tend to lack early in the a.m., or when I’m running late.
So friends- the solution? Prep. Yeah I said it, and no you’re not going to want to do this Sunday afternoon, but will you thank me, and the gods, when you’re munching on a warm bacon and egg breakfast sammy on your way to work Wednesday morning? You betcha. Alright, let’s do thissss-
It’s been a long time coming, but I am FINALLY getting to attend the GFAF Expo this April 7th & 8th in Schaumburg. If you are new to the gluten-free community- this is THE event to be at to try all the new gluten-free goodies that are coming to market. You can also meet and mingle with tons of people who are exactly like you! I mean, when else can you say you’re surrounded by 100’s of your allergy friendly friends? And guess what? I have a surprise for you!
When I first heard that Jersey Mike’s was coming out with a gluten-free sandwich, I rolled my eyes. “Great,” I thought, “Another gluten-free item that will be gone in a couple of months due to cross contamination. Plus it’s probably super crumbly.”
I can blame it on hanger, but this mindset has proven me right all too often lately. So as I opened my Find Me GF App to see if there were any reviews, I was shockingly, and pleasantly surprised to find an announcement on the app for the very same sandwich. If the app was promoting it, I knew I had to put this infamous new sandwich to the test. So I threw on some pants and dragged a friend with me to checkout this sub, and see what it was all about! As promised on the Lifesabeacham instagram, I have made this into a Q&A style post, so take a look at the questions below to find out what I thought of the Jersey Mike’s Gluten-Free Sandwich!
