Hi friends! Hope you all have had a great weekend. Mine was super busy spent coaching both days in Rochester, NY (about a 60-90 min drive from my house). It's always hard to keep up at home (grocery shopping, meal planning, laundry, cleaning, and mom stuff) when I'm gone on the weekends but I usually have the mornings home so I'll be playing catch up the next day or two.
Last week's Meal Plan Monday was my go-to in the morning for breakfast- Peanut Butter Oatmeal. Oatmeal is a great slow burning carb to start the day with! I also make sure that at every meal I have 20-30 g of protein so today I'll be sharing what I've started to really enjoy in the morning with my oatmeal!
I'll talk more about my "macro" goals and what I focus on at a later date to lose "the baby weight" as well as different supplements I use, but I always find that hitting your protein goals for lunch, dinner and snacks is relatively easy. There are tons of different recipes and and foods that you can make. Breakfast, on the other hand...meh. I feel like I have fried eggs. Or an omelette. Or Scrambled eggs. And occasionally some chicken sausage. It gets REAL old, fast.
Last week I tried something completely new and its rocked my world. Honestly, it is something SO simple and I don't know what took me so long to try it!
Turkey bacon and Egg sandwich. Bingo. This is so easy and fast to make and you NAIL your protein breakfast game with 24 grams! This keeps you full for the morning and starts your day out right. You can use any kind of turkey bacon, I just buy the Wegmans organic but you could find a flavored bacon if you like that.
I throw them on a frying pan, let them cook for 2-3 minutes and crack two eggs right on top. Then just flip them when the eggs have reached your desired level (I like mine a little runny). Something about the two combined tastes SO SO good and you don't have to force 3 or 4 eggs down in the morning!
I have 3 meals coming from Sunbasket today and I'll be making a burrito bowl as well as a delayed Cinco De Mayo meal! I'm also excited that its grilling season!
Have a great week everyone! xo
