A delicious thing happened last summer

I always worry about finding healthy options when I am on vacation. I plan ahead as much as possible. I pack snacks, water, and protein bars. Sometimes I make my own. Then I only need to focus on breakfast, and dinner.

Dinners are pretty easy if you just think about lean and green. Skip all the rest. Breakfast on the other hand can be difficult.

Often you will see fresh fruit on the menu. Just make sure that it’s really fresh fruit and not canned. The photo above was offered on the menu. It’s a Belgian with Greek yogurt and fruit. So simple, filling, and packed with energy. It’s been a favorite breakfast of mine ever since.


Low Carb Waffles

….with melted grass fed butter, cinnamon, and monk fruit sugar substitute.

These were my third attempt at keto waffles. The first two recipes that I tried were not waffly.

6 tbsp butter

15 eggs

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup almond flour

3 oz cream cheese

3 tbsp heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

4 tbls olive or avocado oil

Best with a hand mixer. It makes approximately 10 Belgian waffles

You can freeze the rest for a quick breakfast


5 minute eggs!

I have this 5 days a week. It takes 5 minutes.

Here’s what you need

1 mini pancake maker

2 eggs

2 tablespoons of cheddar cheese

Everything but the bagel seasoning

Coconut oil spray

Plug in your mini pancake maker, spray.

Crack one egg into maker, close lid….about 60 seconds later lift egg out with form slide into plate..

Crack second egg into maker, close lid.

Return to first egg and spring two tablespoons of cheddar cheese on top, add salt.

When second egg is done, lift with form and slide into the first egg. This is like an egg sandwich with cheese in the middle. Sprinkle with seasoning.

Clean up- wipe out cooker, wash plate.
