Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini #Paleo

Need a quick, healthy breakfast for a busy morning? I whipped up these Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini yesterday morning, and they were fantastic.

Scrambled Eggs with Grated Zucchini

I had leftover zucchini in the fridge from dinner the night before. It was already shredded. BONUS!! I also had some crumbled, cooked bacon in the fridge from a previous night’s dinner. Having lots of leftovers sitting around is key for sticking to a real food/primal/paleo diet.

So I drizzled some olive oil in a hot pan, sautéed the shredded zucchini for a few minutes until it was just beginning to brown, then I added a clove of minced garlic and the bacon. I stirred that around for about 30 seconds before adding 4 whisked eggs to the pan. My husband whisked the eggs while I sautéed the veggies, and we had the whole dish thrown together in less than 5 minutes. I just stirred the mixture around in the pan until it was cooked through, and I also added some shredded raw cheddar  and garnished with chopped scallions. But the cheddar is totally optional, of course. I also salted and peppered it when I put the eggs in the pan.

This is definitely going to be a regular in our breakfast rotation…

The-Color-Run

It’s been a few weeks since I partnered with Shout® for The Color Run, and I can’t help but look back on those photos and grin. We had such a blast. Because where else can grown women get away with dressing up in tutus and knee socks, getting messy and dancing like teenagers? Although my shirt is pristine once again,…

Desperately Seeking A Healthier Diet . . .

But where to begin?? Real food… paleo… gluten-free… primal… vegetarian… Every time you turn around, a new study comes out debunking the last, and it is all so confusing that it’s tempting to put one’s head in a bag of Doritos and ignore all the advice. My friend Cathy send me this email earlier this week, and…

Keeping Memories Alive #LifeIsASpecialOccasion

I’ve talked a lot recently about how meaningful it is to receive a hand-written note — especially in this digital age because it’s so quickly becoming a lost art. But not only are snail mail and personal notecards becoming a lost art, so is handwriting. Some schools have even begun to eliminate handwriting from their curriculum, citing…
