    Breakfast egg muffins

    Breakfast egg muffins! I posted these on my Facebook page and everyone wanted to know my recipe. Honestly when I posted them I didn’t have a real recipe. These are so easy I just toss everything in a muffin pan, bake, cool and store so they can be reheated all week for breakfast. My boys love that they can pull it out of the refrigerator themselves and toss it in the microwave. When we reheat these we only heat them for around 40 seconds, otherwise they will get crunchy. My general recipe for a 12 muffin tin: 12 eggs (we strongly prefer farm fresh) 2 heaping tbsp of cooked meat…

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars!  We found ourselves with an abundance of overly ripe bananas. What I was wanting was Paula Deans Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting, but we all know that would have been a terrible idea! This recipe is my attempt to replicate the taste of Paula’s famous cake in a bar format that my family can eat.  The boys wouldn’t stay out of it and the entire pan of Paleo Frosted Banana Bars were GONE in less than 24 hours. My husband might have helped a little! These are great as dessert, but they are super awesome in the morning with a cup of black coffee! I…

    Two ingredient fluffy plantain pancakes!

    I always see the banana pancakes when I scroll through Pinterest and wanted to try them. Bananas in our house never make it to the brown, banana bread stage. Heck, they don’t even make it past the green tip phase before my boys devour them! I bought some plantains to fry in coconut oil and never got around to it. I had these plantains sitting on the counter almost rotting so I decided to try a little experiment! [wp_ad_camp_1] Did you know that plantains are higher in nutritional value than bananas? Per 100 grams plantains have: 2% more iron 3% more magnesium 4% more potassium 16% more vitamin C 21%…

    Breakfast Can Wait!

    [wp_ad_camp_2] Breakfast can wait… No Prince, breakfast can’t wait! In our house, we feel like breakfast is essential to having a healthy start to the day! There’s not gonna be grits and gravy, cheese eggs and ham. There’s not gonna be hotcakes smothered in honey,  just good, wholesome Paleo goodness. No time to cook breakfast every morning? No problem! One of the struggles we have is getting breakfast made in the morning. It is so much easier to make toast or cereal instead of eggs and meat. We came up with a prepare-ahead breakfast plan for our family and hopefully it helps someone else make better choices for breakfast. On…

    Coconut Oil Coffee!

    Coconut Oil coffee! I recently started adding organic, unrefined coconut oil to my coffee in the morning. I use it in addition to my creamer, but some people use it alone with honey or other natural sweeteners. The trick is to Coconut Oil Coffee is to BLEND it using a blender or bullet type device.  The result is frothy, creamy, delicious coffee! Try it! Blending it instead of stirring it keeps it from separating. **Update… I stated adding about a tsp-tbsp of organic grass-fed butter to my coffee as well. It gives it a wonderfully creamy texture! Not only is it delicious, but Dr. Oz recommends it because “Studies have show…
