Avocado!

Avocado!

Oh my gosh, Avocados are cheap right now.  Buy them and eat them.  They are high in Vitamin C, along with many other nutrients.  An avocado is easy to take to work for lunch or a snack and perfect to eat on the go.  Toss them in a salad or eat them with a spoon, … Continue reading

Salmon

Salmon

Salmon isn’t your typical Monday morning breakfast.  But, when you cook it for Sunday supper, it can be.  I make it a habit to plan my dinners for leftovers.  It saves time and I can get a better breakfast that way.  Salmon is a favorite for its high protein and high Omega 3 fats.  When … Continue reading

Eat Real Food!

Eat Real Food!

If Caveman didn’t eat it, neither should you.  I’ve heard a lot of interesting terms from friends and co-workers: breakfast soda, morning chips, good m-oreos.  It kills me to see people eating like this.  STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING IN A PACKAGE!  I know this is easier said than done.  Here are the exceptions.  When there’s … Continue reading

Nuts & Berries

Nuts & Berries

Nuts and berries are a snacking staple for me.  But, sometimes I eat them for breakfast.  When I’ve had a heavy meal the night before or I’m on the go, I eat walnuts and various types of berries.  Walnuts are another Omega 3 source.  Not only that, they’re the best ratio Omega 6/Omega 3 nut … Continue reading

Fish for breakfast?

Fish for breakfast?

Yes!  I’ll never forget my trip to visit family in the Philippines.  One morning, I woke up to the sound of kids outside.  I looked out the window to see the them running up from the beach with fresh fish for breakfast.  Since then, I treat myself to fish whenever I want it, including breakfast. … Continue reading

You Pick It, Scramble!

You Pick It, Scramble!

I like eggs, but I’m careful not to eat them too much.  I’m still trying to figure out what too much is.  Until then, I’ll stick to once or twice a week.  There are a few options with eggs:  eat them whole, eat them white, eat them in between.  You can mix the whites of … Continue reading

Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie Chicken

Sometimes I’m on the go and have to get out of the house quickly.  I know a lot of people have to deal with the same thing and that’s why breakfasts are sometimes the worst meal of the day.  I try to keep a whole chicken on hand for just that reason.  It’s so much … Continue reading

Meat and Potatoes…Not

Meat and Potatoes…Not

Meat and greens, greens, greens, not potatoes.  Lose them.  Grains are paleo public enemy, number one.  But, potatoes are one of those things that fly under the radar because most consider them a vegetable.  There are so many better choices for calorie intake.  If you have a choice, why would you choose the less nutritious … Continue reading

Turkey Stir Fry

Turkey Stir Fry

Turkey is the easiest of all the proteins to work with, in my opinion.  It cooks very quickly and has such a neutral flavor that you can really taste whatever you decide to cook it with.  I still have white mushrooms and green onions in the fridge this week so it was a simple stir … Continue reading

I Love Mushrooms!

I Love Mushrooms!

Mushrooms are a great tasting, nutritious food.  Just a few mushrooms, sauteed or raw, can add all kinds of flavor to any meal.  There are so many varieties available but crimini and white mushrooms seem to be the least expensive and readily available.  You can even buy them pre sliced to speed up your breakfast … Continue reading
