Eggs, Zucchini and Salsa Breakfast

I love breakfast. It’s probably my favorite meal of the day. A lot of times my husband ends up making breakfast but occasionally he will let me make breakfast too. 🙂 I love trying new ways to incorporate vegetables in to my day. For breakfast I shredded some zucchini the day before and used some salsa I had made earlier in the week as well to top it off. But any salsa will do!

Ingredients:
Eggs
Fat (Butter/bacon fat/coconut oil)
Shredded zucchini
Dried onion flakes, salt, pepper
Salsa

Instructions:
Drop a little fat into the pan, let it melt and add in the zucchini. Let it get soft, add dried onion flakes and cook for about 2-4 minutes on a low heat. Set aside once it is cooked. Add in an egg or two to fry. Cover with a lid for about 2 minutes on low heat. Add salt and serve over zucchini. Top with salsa and enjoy!

Green Beans with Bacon & Dried Onion

Another tasty fresh garden treat this summer – green beans! I have never loved them but I think I realized that I have been used to canned green beans. There is a HUGE difference. Fresh green beans are the bomb!

The ingredient line up:
2-3 cups fresh green beans (I cut the ends off of mine, but you don’t have to)
1 tablespoon olive oil (or you can use butter/coconut oil/bacon fat)
2 pieces of nitrate free bacon
1 Tablespoon of dried onions

Wash or cut ends of green beans. In a pan that you have a lid for, take 1/4 cup of water and steam the beans for about 4 minutes. Add the olive oil and let them sauté on low for about 5 minutes. Add in finely chopped bacon, cook for another 5 minutes, add in dried onions for final few minutes.

Enjoy!

**I ate them before I got a picture of my yummy green beans! Post yours in the comments!

Spinach Strawberry & Walnut Salad

Summer salads are the best! Although Summer has come to an end, you can still play around with versions of this salad through the fall. You can swap out the strawberries for a fresh in-season chopped apple.

4-5 cups Spinach
1  1/2 cup sliced Strawberries or 1-2 apple chopped
Chopped Onion
Other add-in options: walnuts, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds

Dressing: (this will probably make more dressing than you want on the salad)
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Sea salt
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Ground pepper
