Chili Vegetable Omelet Breakfast began today with protein plus. A day that begins with protein makes me feel less hungry. Do you eat eggs and vegetables for breakfast, or do you opt for oatmeal and fruit? Which is best? Opinions vary about whether or not carbohydrates should be included in breakfast. Friends joke about the eggs that I eat. You can browse this blog and see that I love to eat eggs. But they’re nutritious. It seems that I’m not the only one with this opinion. Ines Subashka, a certified personal trainer at inspiredfitstrong.com favors eating eggs early in the day – seven to eight eggs.Read More →

Follow my blog with Bloglovin  Eat a two-egg omelet for breakfast, and you have about 12 grams of protein. Add pork sausage, onion, and herbs to that, and your protein increases to about 18-20 grams. Protein and exercise together can boost muscle mass and metabolism. Grow an herb garden close to your kitchen. When you’re cooking, then you can quickly go outside and grab the herbs you want. Organic herbs add so much flavor to dishes. Dill, oregano, and cilantro from my kitchen herb garden were included in this omelet recipe. First, I chopped up the already-cooked pork sausage and part of an onion. SinceRead More →

This week I’ve challenged myself to prepare meals by using four different kitchen appliances. Crockpot, microwave, and griddle meals are doable. Pop-up toaster meals require a bit more creativity. I shared my griddle and pop-up toaster French Vanilla French Toast meal previously. It turned out successful, so much that I’ve made it twice already. The crockpot meal, Crockpot Pork Chops, turned out great. I’ll make that one again for sure. The recipe is for four pork chops, servings for up to four people. I also made a crockpot chocolate pudding brownie dessert. While that was cooking (1-1/2 hours), I cooked the chocolate frosting in the microwave.Read More →

Happy New Year, food lovers! I started off January 1, 2016 with a fancy breakfast and a hot frothy vanilla latte. What made it extra special was spending time with my daughter and baby granddaughter. The ideal thing for a food blogger to do on January 1st is to blog. Makes sense, right? Well, I had another idea to start the year off. You know how some of us must have that cup of coffee the first thing in the morning? I had my cup of coffee to start off the first day of the year. Now that yesterday was a day of relaxing, I’mRead More →

EGG RECIPES How many egg recipes do you think you can come up with? When I think I can’t come up with another one, I discover yet one more recipe that calls for an egg. A foodie blogger friend, Patti over at PattyCakesPantry.com, and I went on an egg recipe binge. We had fun trying out different meals that included hard boiled eggs. Our husbands tolerated our meal experiments but didn’t think that it was so much fun as we did (though they did eat our creative egg dishes). Patti and I scheduled tasting meals and snacks, voting on our favorites. The favorites were publishedRead More →

  This week a blogger friend and I had some blogging work to do. She took me to breakfast at a country club restaurant called the Sand Trap Grill, and we brought our laptops. She wanted to take me to the restaurant because it’s quiet and she likes the food. Quiet is good for me right now because I’ve had vertigo for over a month. The type of vertigo I have doesn’t mix well with movement or acute noise. One of my worst episodes happened at another restaurant when another friend took me to breakfast after a doctor’s appointment. It was a good thing weRead More →

Healthy omelets are filling and satisfying and great for a Sunday morning. When eating such an omelet for breakfast or brunch, you can make it through the day until dinner. Last Sunday morning I prepared a turkey and kitchen garden omelet for Hubs and me. The ground turkey was a left over. I went out to the herb and veggie garden just outside my kitchen and got a mini green bell pepper, a few basil leaves, and a couple of tomatoes from my Roma tomato plant. The Coconut Oil began to sizzle on the griddle, and the bell pepper and tomatoes were added first. NextRead More →

When I started out as a newlywed cook 35 years ago, I wondered at my maternal grandmother’s advice to add a little of this and a little of that. Craving her chocolate meringue pie one day, I called and asked her how to make it. She estimated the measurements for me the best she could. Her expertise in how much of each ingredient went into each recipe gave her an ability that I had not yet accomplished. Things have changed – at least with vegetables. When deciding on which vegetables to stir fry, I open the refrigerator and grab whatever I have on hand. IfRead More →

A kitchen is not complete unless eggs can be found in the refrigerator! In my opinion at least. How can one egg yolk contain so much fat that it’s too unhealthy to eat? An egg yolk has the good fats, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Eating three to four eggs per week doesn’t adversely affect your heart disease risk according to an article by Healthy Eating. Indulging in a three-egg omelet every day would probably not be the moderate thing to do. I like to boil three or four eggs ahead of time and keep them in the fridge. A boiled egg makes a quick energy snack whetherRead More →
