    This morning I had a quick version of the paleomg buffalo chicken 'pasta'. Fried some already chopped onions, added zoodles, already cooked chicken and some carrot strips made with my peeler. Heated it all, dumped mayo and Frank's on top, heated it more. Utterly delicious.

    My best breakfast recently was when I rode my bike to work and my wonderful boyfriend brought me my breakfast to eat at my desk. It was a huge salad with many different leaves including spinach & watercress, avocado, apricot & bacon ( bacon here is very meaty and is protein not just fat)

    Mmmmm...shepherds pie. Amazing for the first meal of the day. Warm and comforting and filling.

    Brisket, slow cooked in a little lard (from when I sealed it in the pan), cloves, & garam masala, served with a full bag of spinach & a quarter onion (which reduced down to about 2 cups when sauteed), a beef tomato and a handful of olives.
     
    The brisket had cooked over night with some shin in my crock-pot and was so tender.

    Wow, Shannon! You got so much color on your bok choy that I thought they were roasted potatoes at first!

    I bottled my first batch yesterday and am on 2nd Fermentation. 3 with Raspberry, 2 with blueberry/ginger and 2 plain. I have a nice sparkle as of bottling and I'm sure I'll be fizzy in 2 days at the longest. Now I just have to remember to burp the bottles and hope I don't get any explosions!
     
    Here's a pic - please excuse my repurposed GT bottles - I left the labels on and put plain in Original, ginger/blueberry in Gingerberry, and raspberry in any of the red color-labeled bottles. I decided I'm too lazy to remove them for now.
     

     
    Added a gallon to my mother vessel to keep it going strong. I can't believe how exciting this is!

    I tried to just sprinkle a little Chinese five spice on it and it spilled. They didn't really get that brown, but they were very flavorful.

    Curry for breakfast today! the grilled chicken in curry sauce from the w30 book (oven baked not grilled). With green beans, cauli rice and cocoa toasted cauliflower. All leftovers, all delicious. I'm sad it's gone.

    I thought to post this shot of my breakfast prep this morning.  On the weekend I diced 5 bell peppers, 3# green beans, a bunch of steamed potatoes and some ham (note, the ham is not compliant but I am not on Whole30).  Now in the morning I just throw a handful of each into a frying pan with some fat, go blowdry my hair and pour a coffee and breakfast cooks itself.  Wash out one frying pan when the food has been plated and you're done!
     

     
    Note: the ham is non compliant but you could do the same with cooked chicken, cooked ground pork/beef, chopped roast, chopped pork chops etc.  Repeat, the ham is not compliant.

    A rare eggless breakfast for me - chicken meatballs, zoodles and baba ganoush. I took a photo but don't know how to embed it.

    Cauliflower and curry are best friends.
     
    I've eaten pretty much the same breakfast every day this week: shredded cabbage, sweet potato, protein, maybe another veggie. Today it was leftover shredded pork, diced sweet potato instead of shredded, and leftover roast green beans along with my cabbage. Seasoned with 21-spice, a bit hit of salt, and some avocado oil. There was leftover lamb shoulder in the fridge, but I've decided that I can't handle lamb first thing in the morning.

    Oh, I love the idea of putting power greens in!  I love the silky gingered soup, no reason why not to cram a whole bunch more nutrient density into it!  Smart!

    2 pounds ground chicken (I use ground chicken thighs as it's moister...if you use ground breast, add some of the bacon fat for richness)
    1 pound bacon, diced and cooked until very crispy, then drained
    1 bunch cilantro chopped
    a handful of chives from the garden...or a couple scallions
    Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
    Form into patties...and then in that magical depression that you make in the middle of a burger to stop it turning into a baseball when you cook it? You jam a bunch of pickled jalapeños.  
     
    I would have preferred to mix the jalapeños into the burger meat but husband doesn't like spicy so I had to do it so that he could pick them out/off.
     
    I grilled the ones I have on hand right now but have also done them in the oven...on a rack placed on a cookie sheet and baked at 500F for 10-12 minutes.

    Some of you make some seriously good looking meals!  I wished I enjoyed cooking more...I think I would enjoy ALL of your meals, but I just don't want to take the time to fix them.
     
    For me, M1 today (yes, at 3:30pm, but I worked patrol last night, got in at 6am, slept until 1) was baked salmon topped with a sauce of homemade mayo mixed with fresh salsa, and a heaping side of Wildbrine's Red Beet and Cabbage sauerkraut.  I'm in LOVE with that sauerkraut...could eat the whole jar with a spoon.
     
    I'm not currently "doing" a W30, but I'm moving more and more to that type of eating as a lifestyle.  It's cool how it "creeps" into your thinking and becomes easier and easier.

    I'm not sure if this is breakfast, or more of a brunch, since I slept later than usual, but this is what I had for my first meal today:
     

     
    Elvis burger (hamburger patty topped with almond butter, banana, and bacon), collard greens, and sweet potatoes (yes, they were slightly burnt. One of these days I'll learn to set a timer).
