Breakfast Potatoes

Cheers to an almost 4 day weekend! If you’re like me you are required to work a half day today you make the best of your time and blog it up. The upside of this morning is that there was no traffic at all, and if you live in the Bay Area or anywhere where traffic can be a pain in the butt you appreciate this for every minute you sailed right through. So tomorrow, we have three options: Get up early and run Turkey Trot, Lay in bed until duty calls, or make the most of your morning while remaining breakfast savvy and make a delicious breakfast for those beloveds of yours! I probably wont be sleeping in because I never do…so I will most likely go with option number 3!

What you’ll need:

  • organic eggs
  • veggies [your choice- I like zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes]
  • rustic or red potatoes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt/pepper/garlic powder

Breakfast is soooo easy. I know most people love their eggs over easy, sunny side up etc. but I am a scramble only kind of girl. Yes, plain eggs can be boring after a while therefore I like to mix it up. I add my favorite veggies, usually grated zucchini, mushrooms and diced tomato. For the potatoes you can use either rustic or red [diced], with a yellow onion and green bell pepper. I use extra virgin olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Start them on a med-high heat so they can brown and reduce to a low heat so they can cook after browning. If you’re thinking about a post Thanksgiving breakfast you can always toss some of that ham in the scramble for some extra flavor!

I hope you guys have a great holiday! Eat lots but remember we must BURN TO EARN!! 🙂

Countdown to Thanksgiving.

Happy Almost Thanksgiving! Crazy to believe #1 that it is already the end of November, and #2 that the holiday season has begun! Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday considering I have a slight obsession with all things food: grocery stores, prepping, cooking…and well the vino of course! I have been browsing Pinterest the last couple of days trying to find some vegetarian side dishes that I am usually responsible for. Last year I made stuffed mushrooms, beet salad, brussels sprouts and I think if my memory serves me right I did a pumpkin cheesecake as well. YUM! I am salivating just thinking about it. This year I am leaning towards a slow cooker recipe for the mushrooms and roasted cauliflower with parmesan cheese (pictured above).

Since I don’t have a lot of time off on a regular basis (2 jobs, gym, traveling etc.) it will be nice to soak up 2 full days of rest and relaxation. Catching up with the fam bam will of course be an added bonus! Do you guys have any fun plans for Thanksgiving?? What are you making? I want to hear! Maybe we can feature some of your recipe newtritionsavysarah.com

Thanks Pinterest for helping me search for the perfect Thanksgiving recipes!
