Eggs - Change It Up

Eggs are one of the most perfect foods.They're delicious, versatile, economical, and good for us. They're also fast to prepare.  Sometimes people don't appreciate them like they should. Maybe they burn themselves out on boiled eggs too many mornings in a row, but when prepping, they could peel them, put them in sandwich bags and shake different herbs or smoked sea salts into the bag.

The first photo shows two eggs with fresh dill and cilantro, smoked paprika, turmeric, cherry wood smoked sea salt, and pepper. I took this photo right before I flipped them over. These are just perfect with a side of farm-fresh uncured bacon.

This photo shows a paleo scrambled egg variation. I beat up 2 eggs with 1 TBSP coconut milk, fresh basil, pink sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I scrambled them in a skillet with 1 TBSP of grass fed butter. These eggs are incredible and so fast. They work for any meal, too.

If you've got a big training day ahead, this egg breakfast might steer you toward a PR. When I make Sausage and Sweet Potato Skillet for dinner I use the leftovers for breakfast along with a couple of eggs. We love this with Bacon Sausage Serrano Skillet, too. (This is a photo from Duncan as a contest entry going on now on the Feeding Ger Sasser Facebook page. Thanks!)

Eggs - be creative. Throw some herbs and spices on them. Stack them up. Try something new.
