Breakfast Salad

Standard

Hello Beauties.

Happy Monday! I’m currently posted up in bed after a busy day at work and enjoying the sunshine. It’s finally feeling like spring = happiness. I even treated myself to a tasty Eggs Benedict at the Breakfast Nook II while studying for the GRE’s this morning in celebration of the sun.

I have this recipe for a breakfast salad I have been meaning to share (and make myself again), so without further ado, here she is:

Ingredients:

– 1 medium sized sweet potato, diced
– 2 hardboiled eggs
– ½ small red onion, diced
– 5 strips of bacon, diced
– 1 avocado, diced (or mushed, depending on preference)
– fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions:

1. Boil eggs – 10 minutes will yield hard eggs.
2. While eggs are boiling, cook bacon in coconut oil.
3. After 5 minutes of cooking bacon, add your sweet potato and onion.
4. Cook until the sweet potato is a light gold.
5. Once eggs are cooked, peel and dice them.
6. Add avocado and lemon juice; mix ingredients together.
7. Divulge 😉

Simple stuff, right? It’s a fantastic way to start your day since it has the macro-nutrients (protein, fats, carbohydrates) your body needs along with some colorful micro-nutrients, too!

My go-to breakfast that I make virtually every morning is 2 eggs over easy with cheese on some sort of bread that has either avocado, hummus or fresh salsa spread on it. I also add ketchup and hot sauce because I like the taste and we can’t always eat perfectly. This is quick and easy, but I think tomorrow since I have the day off I will get a little crazy and make this salad instead. Anyone have any good staple meals you eat to break your fast?

Until next time!

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
