My phone is full of pictures of food. Well, and cats. But also food. I promised serious exhibitionism, and I intend to deliver. As I said, I’m not going to update the blog every time I eat (annoying) but I will update Instagram. I’ve had it for three years, and had only posted two pictures- both of them were of food. I think daily pictures of what I’m eating is fulfilling my Instagram’s life purpose. It’s destiny.

So, without further adieu, here are the unique-ish things I’ve been eating for breakfast over the last month or so:

Swirly Crustless Quiche from Practically Paleo – that’s a big piece of egg. Frequent bites of bacon neccesary.

Eggs scrambled with spinach and topped with avocado and Parmasean cheese. Parmasean cheese is not strictly paleo…but it was tasty.

Post workout breakfast: kale, two eggs, bacon, and a sweet potato with butter. The sweet potato was probably a bit too much. Now if I feel like workout really took it out of me, I add half of one.

I had zero desire to eat anything except fruit, so: two hardboiled eggs, a smoothie made with berries and coconut milk, and coffee.

Prosciutto Wrapped Mini Frittata Muffins from Nom Nom Paleo. I made these this time without the prosciutto (hence the bacon) in silicone muffin liners. Either works great!

Here’s what I’ve learned from the last month of breakfasts:

  • You better get vegetables in at breakfast, or you are missing a big opportunity.
  • I tend to have the same thing every day: kale, one piece of bacon, two eggs. I’m looking forward to switching this up with scrambles of whatever is in season as veggies start to come up this summer.
  • Paleo does not equal weight loss. One of those smoothies is a good 7 WW points! On top of the rest of the breakfast – that’s a lot!! This is also why I went from 2 pieces of bacon to 1. I do think having some fat is important.
  • It’s a good idea (for me, anyway) to have grab and go options, like frozen egg muffins or hardboiled eggs. Plus a piece of bacon from the bacon bag and a piece of fruit – good to go.
