If I have been a little quiet on here lately, I apologize. The past two weeks have been filled with travel and a bit crazier than usual schedule! In the middle of all of that, I also got food poisoning and cannot remember a time that I have felt that sick! But today I am back and ready to conquer a new week! I have been finding myself in a breakfast rut and have been experimenting with new breakfast ideas to try and pull myself out of eating the same old thing every morning, especially on the weekends! The other day I found myself with a somewhat stale load of french bread and the happiest accident happened! I created the most delicious savory ham and cheese breakfast bake that you are going to flip over and your whole family is going to love it!
I love the idea of starting my day off with greens. I feel like it sets the tone for the day and makes me feel really good after I eat them. Breakfast salads are becoming more popular for this reason and I love that you can truly use salad as a base for all of your favorite breakfast foods! From eggs, potatoes, more veggies, avocado, and more the possibilities are endless for breakfast salads! It’s another great way to meal prep at the beginning of the week and have a healthy breakfast ready when you are every single morning! My Spanish chorizo summer breakfast salad is the perfect dish to help you switch up your regular breakfast routine!
Currently we are in a phase of my son waking up and walking out of his room and immediately requesting a “snack”. He doesn’t want to eat a real breakfast just a snack that he can eat and play at the same time of course. Since we don’t do “snacks” before meals, I had to get creative with what his options could be! I needed something that could be nutritious enough for breakfast, but that could also be available without me having to prep anything! (Enter the breakfast cookie!) Yep, that’s right, cookies for breakfast that are actually good for you to! My peanut butter trail mix breakfast cookies are going to be your family's new favorite breakfast cookie for on-the-go or for a quick breakfast at home!
It’s Monday which means busy mornings are in full swing around here! One of my favorite ways to survive the morning is to have a freezer and fridge stocked with easy breakfasts! I have a kiddo who wakes up asking what is for breakfast before I have even fully opened my eyes and so having a breakfast I don’t have to think about is a lifesaver! Things like mini frittatas, muffins, and waffles are just a few of the recipes I like to have on hand at all times! Lately I am so obsessed with blueberry everything and just can’t seem to get enough! I created these double blueberry waffles on a whim one weekend and have been making them ever since!

Smoothies are a staple at my house. We drink them for breakfast, post-workout recovery drinks, and for a delicious snack option! I love them because they feel like a little treat even though, if done right, they can be packed with some serious nutrition! I'm excited to bring you a Creamy Avocado Cacao Smoothie recipe, using New Horizon® Organic High Protein Chocolate Milk in Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk to create a smoothie that will surely become your new favorite!
I grew up in Tennessee where deviled eggs were a staple at every pot luck or holiday table! More than likely there were a few varieties of deviled eggs at any given time, especially during Easter time! I love taking classic recipes that I grew up on and giving them new life with exciting new ingredients! Deviled eggs have endless possibilities as far as ways you can add different flavors to them and I created a deviled egg that is perfect for Easter brunch or to serve as an appetizer to Easter dinner! My chorizo deviled eggs are so delicious and easy to make and I can promise even people who think they don’t like deviled eggs will be raving about this recipe!
