This is a quick breakfast that takes only 2 minutes to prep and 2 minutes to cook. It's also pretty tasty and you can create a lot of different variations. It's simply, egg whites, bacon and fresh salsa.
So I spray a bowl with some coconut oil PAM, rip up 2 fully cooked pieces of bacon and spread it out in the bottom of the bowl. I add 1-2 cups egg whites and microwave for 2 minutes. I throw some fresh salsa on the top and BOOM! done and done... You could add spinach, kale, any veggie of your choice really. You could leave the bacon out, use Canadian bacon, ground beef or turkey etc... The options are endless and it is time friendly. Give it a try!!!
This is a recipe I stumbled on a couple years ago and haven't had the courage to step up and give it a try. I'm looking for a few brave souls out there who will tackle this behemoth project and report back to me their findings. Who is in??? I'll admit, this isn't the "healthiest" of recipes but dammit, it looks delicious!!! In the guise of paleo people are loading up on high saturated fats that are more than likely from processed sources and calling it a healthy alternative. You have to be careful, make sure your meat is local, grass fed and not pumped full of antibiotics and chemicals. This just seems like a fun idea and a way to keep it low carb, high fat and mega tasty!!! For the whole step by step directions, go to-->Paleo Diet & Living<-- and check out their site, lots of great recipes and cool ideas!!!

Sometimes easier is better. We don't have endless hours to devote to food prep or have the ability to prepare a gourmet meal every night, so here is one we haven't tried but is one of my favorite meals growing up with a twist. I found it at http://dishragdiaries.com/recipes/recipe-sausage-butternut-shepherds-pie-paleo-wlc-approved/
Sausage & Butternut Shepherd’s Pie*2-1/2 to 3 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks, about 1″ or so (could sub sweet potato)
*Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
*5 Tbsp. grassfed butter or ghee (plus extra for sauteing, if needed)
*1 lb. bulk Italian sausage (WLC-legal sources)
*2-3 carrots, sliced
*1 medium onion, diced
*8 oz. shitake mushrooms, sliced
*3 cloves garlic, minced
*1 cup diced tomatoes
*1/2 cup stock (chicken or beef)
*1-1/2 to 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped rosemary, or 1-1/2 to 2 tsp. dried
*2 green onions, sliced (optional)
*4-5 slices leftover cooked bacon (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place squash chunks onto a baking pan (again, I love my stone for roasting veggies) and drizzle with olive oil (or other healthy fat of choice). Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and toss. Roast for about 25 minutes, tossing again about halfway through. (This is how long it takes in my oven. Remember that ovens vary. Always check with a fork; the squash should be quite tender.) You could also boil or steam the squash, but roasting provides a deeper flavor and more nutrient retention.
While squash is roasting, cook the sausage in a large skillet until just a bit pink. If necessary, add in additional fat (such as ghee) and then add in carrots, sauteing for just a minute. Add in onions and mushrooms and saute until veggies are tender (about 5 mins.). Add in garlic. After about two minutes, add a few shakes of fish sauce, tomatoes, stock and rosemary.
Bring just to boiling, and then reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens. Add sea salt to taste.
Meanwhile, remove squash from oven and increase oven temp to 400 degrees. Place squash chunks in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, blend squash with ghee (or butter) and salt.
When meat mixture has thickened to your desired consistency, place it in a casserole dish. Top with the mashed squash mixture. If using, break up leftover bacon pieces on top.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the leftover bacon crisps up. Garnish with sliced green onions, if using, and let set for a few minutes before serving.
