Zucchini with Bacon




Why is deciding what to eat for breakfast so hard? Why do some foods seem so hard to even consider for breakfast?  Have you ever asked yourself these questions? I have found that the longer we eat clean, the easier it is to eat "different" foods for breakfast. The photo above is a perfect example of a great breakfast that doesn't fit into many people's idea of what should be eaten as the first meal of the day, but it delivers sustained energy, continued health and nutrition, and it was easy.

I cooked 6 pieces of bacon in a large skillet. I placed the cooked bacon on a plate with paper towels and patted the bacon with another paper towel.

I poured out half of the bacon grease into a container for later use.  (Do you keep bacon grease?)

I washed and sliced 2 organic zucchini and put it into the skillet over medium heat and stirred often.

While the zucchini was cooking I added:

1 tsp Garlic Gold Nuggets       garlicgold.com
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp turmeric
pink sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

This made a great breakfast. It also makes a great side dish. Make the effort to eat real foods and get lots of vegetables into your plan. Your health is so important and great food is like putting money in a savings account for your future.
