    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).

    ladyshanny reacted to missmary in Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered   
     
    why the darkest sugar? Dark colored sugar tends to be high in molasses, which is high in mineral content. Such mineral content is fantastic for water keifer, but too many minerals will yield yeasty kombucha--maybe not on the first batch, but after a while. Kombucha does best on organic cane sugar.
     
    Also, in case you were wondering, alternative sugars don't work for kombucha either, at least for long term, so no coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup or stevia. There is a culture that grows on honey (Jun tea), but you need a Jun scoby for that one.

    As it is currently Eight Billion Degrees here today, I thought I'd start off this morning with a salad.  And yes, I ate it out of a huge tupperware because as we always say, your salad needs to be huge and all my large bowls were busy.  Contained potatoes, olives, pickles, peppers, tomatoes, greens, cucumbers, a hunk of meatloaf and this dressing.

    This morning I made compliant breakfast sausage and tossed in frozen broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and spinach. I topped that with Lizard Sauce. When I don't have Lizard Sauce I stir in homemade mayo instead. Since it takes 5 minutes to make, I always have some! Add coffee & coconut milk, yum!
     
    Yesterday I had ground beef, onions, green salsa and avocado with some chopped cilantro from my garden. Heaven! I do usually top my meat and veggies with an egg or two, but it's just as delicious when I am out of eggs.

    One of the most common questions here on the forum is, what can I eat for breakfast? Maybe it's someone used to eating pancakes or pop tarts or just coffee or nothing at all, or maybe it's someone who's been eating eggs and is tired of them or wants to try the AIP protocol that doesn't allow eggs, but most people at some point during a Whole30 wonder about this. I thought maybe we could have a thread about unusual but tasty breakfast options that we could direct people to when they ask.
     
    So, if you eat the kind of breakfast that makes your non-W30 friends think you're weird, things that aren't your standard eggs and bacon or sausage combos, tell us about them here. If you want to show pictures, go for it.
     
    (Posts showing or describing obviously non-Whole30 foods like paleo pancakes, fauxtmeal, or coconut yogurt-fruit-nut creations will be deleted without warning. Please stick to meals that meet the meal template.)
     
    I'll get us started here -- this morning, I had leftover braised round steak, belly dance beet salad, and crisp sweet collards with pecans and raisins.
     
     

     
    So what did you have for your Meal1 this morning?
