I’ll say it, I’m a breakfast foodie. I love waking up in the morning and throwing together a plate full of veggies, eggs, sometimes Canadian bacon. Breakfast might be my favorite thing to cook and in my own kitchen because it’s so easy to whip something up.
For those who have been following along, you’ll know that not too long ago I found myself couch surfing with friends while I figured out the next steps in my life. This meant sharing a kitchen space, fridge, you name it, with people who don’t adhere to the strict gluten-free lifestyle I do. So- I had to McGiver my way around contaminated toasters, work with shared food storge, and at the end of the day, still enjoy my first meal in the morning. I found that there are definitely ways to do this- without feeling like you’re depriving yourself or eating unhealthy for convenience! Check out the recipes I used for a month below.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm believer in the concepts of “treat yo self” “rosé all day” and YOLO, but I also believe in the 80/20 rule, so during the week I like to shift my focus to healthy alternatives that taste just as good as the treat I’m craving.

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.
