Whole 30: Breakfast Day One
I am sure a lot of you are in the exact same boat as me; Christmas took a toll on my body. I definitely came out of the season a few pounds heavier than I went into it being, but more than that, I feel slow, sluggish, and just gross.
Those of you who know me, know I am not one to jump on any fad diets, or do any sort of diet in general. I eat pretty healthy, I am careful about the amount of sugar that I consume, eat as much fresh, raw food as I can, and do my best to avoid any sort of processed food. I am not saying that I am a health nut, by any stretch of the imagination, but I do work hard to stay healthy. Then, along came Christmas...
Without going into great detail, outlining every little thing that I consumed which would normally not be a part of my diet, I will just say, I need a system reset.
Que: Whole 30. This is my daily Whole 30 journal.
Fried Brussels Sprouts, with Avocado, Tomatoes, topped with an Egg.
This is very typical to my everyday diet, with the exception of frying the brussels sprouts in a little bit of avocado oil instead of a little bit of butter. Here is a super simple recipe.
5 Brussels Sprouts, thinly sliced
4 slices of Tomato
1/4 Avocado, cubed
2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/2 tsp Avocado Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. In a small pan over medium high heat, add half of the avocado oil (1/4 tsp) and allow to heat up. Once your oil is hot, throw in your brussels sprouts, and add your salt and pepper. Continue to stir brussels sprouts, as to avoid burning, until cooked through.
2. Set brussels sprouts aside on a small plate, and in the same pan, add remainder of avocado oil, and fry your egg over medium high heat.
3. While egg is cooking, top your brussels sprouts with tomato slices, and avocado cubes. Once egg is cooked put it on top of your brussels sprouts, and sprinkle the nutritional yeast on top.
It is pretty darn easy, and I probably didn't need to detail everything in the recipe for you (I am pretty sure you can all fry an egg on your own), but I needed to fill up my post with content somehow, right?
