Breakfast Improv #2

For me, the key to a successful and energizing breakfast includes protein, fat, greens and caffeine.  In the current climate of anti-fat food bias that may not sound to appetizing.  However, I’m in the best shape of my life these days and it only keeps getting better.  What you won’t find included are grains and sugar.  I don’t always avoid grains; but mostly.  This works for me.  Check out this morning’s breakfast.  I made it from a few staples and whatever I found in the kitchen.  Great stuff!


One of the many possibilities for omelets.

1 tbs bacon fat
2 large eggs
1 tsp of chopped garlic
2 cups mixed greens
3 tbs of labne (Turkish yogurt)
2 slices of bacon
1/4 to 1/2 cup of chopped roasted beets
Dash of tumeric
Black pepper to taste

Cook this up in your favorite steel or cast iron skillet and enjoy with your favorite morning beverage!

Winter Roots Omelet

Feast your eyes on this morning’s breakfast.

3 eggs (1 yoke)
red onions
left over roasted roots (yellow and orange carrots, beet, parsnip, sweet potato, daikon)
veg oil

All the ingredients are wrapped inside what looks more like a crepe than an omelet. Make this as a healthy alternative for that eggs-n-hash lovin’ fool you know.

All ingredients (sans tomatoes) are organic and locally grown from Winter Moon Roots and Stillman’s Farm.
