Take a little time out of your day to throw this Italian themed dish together and you'll be you'll be looking forward to breakfast all week long!


Recently someone asked my what my favorite food was. My immediate thought was {oh this will be easy} but then it hit me… I like food a lot. Like a lot, A LOT. And you're asking me to choose only one?

I'm indecisive enough as it is, seriously though; shopping alone is only ever successful for me because of the invention of the camera phone and now snapchat. {So thank you technology, you're not all bad} There’s absolutely no way I'd be able to pick just 1 food, it's just not possible. Instead I came up with a list of my favorite FOODS {plural, not singular} and I'll be sure to share those with you shortly in another blog post.

But for the time being, I'll share one of the first foods that came to mind when creating this list and why!

Eggs. Yep, eggs. Straight up pastured raised, beautiful, brown, nutrient filled eggs. At first this might seem a little odd, but once I really sat down and thought about it, I use eggs for everything! Breakfast, baking, condiments, salads, burgers, EV.ERY.THING and I love it!

In fact, many times I’ve thought about how eliminating eggs would be the hardest part about following an AIP protocol. Sure I'm obsessed {really obsessed} with nuts, coffee and chocolate too, but do I eat them every single day? No. Are they the most nutrient dense foods for my body? The answer to both questions is “No” they aren't.

Eggs on the other hand are one of the most nutrient dense foods out there as they are high in protein, complete with all 9 essential amino acids, and contain at least 15 different vitamins and minerals.  However, you don’t even get half of the nutrition benefits from the egg unless you {Eat The Yolks} so please, eat the whole egg and none of this {egg white-B.S.} that still seems to be lurking around in many people’s diets. With that incredible nutritional content going for them why wouldn't I eat eggs as much as possible? Breakfast, Lunch + Dinner, gimme all the eggs!

And because I just shared my utter and complete love for eggs with you, I’m sharing one of our very favorite weekday breakfast recipes with you. Take a little time out of your day to throw this together and you'll be you'll be looking forward to breakfast all week long!
