Chop some bacon and cook it up. Remove bacon then sauté any greens you feel like eating. Lastly, get an egg and make it super crispy. Boom. Bacon and eggs #bae

Saturday morning consumption is @barelybread, avocado, spinach, and @wellshire bacon. #stacksonstacks
Now I'm off to go on a big ol' hike.
Hope everyone has an awesome day! #lifeafterwhole30

Friday hack: Take an ice cube tray, add some fresh herbs and oil and then freeze it. When you are ready to use just plop that sucker right into the skillet or let it defrost in a little bowl and use it as your base for dressing. It's a great way to use those fresh herbs that are starting to look so sad in your kitchen.

Take the rest of your boxed broth (one of my faves is @kettleandfire. Their ingredients are clean and #whole30) and freeze them in ice cube trays. When you are ready to use just plop them out!! Feel free to add fresh herbs to the broth before you freeze it!! #hacks #yourewelcome

It seems like school has started for most. (we are "old school" and go back after Labor Day) but it hasn't stopped my kids from already declaring that they want these "eggos" for on their 1st day!
These eggos are basically omelettes in waffle form, so if yoy have been wondering what to do with that waffle iron this is it!
________________________________
Eggo
What you need:
•6-8 eggs whisked
•veggies of choice (ex.diced bell pepper, spinach or kale, tomatoes)
•meat of choice (ex. bacon, sausage, pulled pork) •oil for waffle iron

What to do:
• In a bowl, crack eggs and whisk. • Add in your veggies and meat. If you are using bacon you will need to cook it up 1st.
• Oil waffle iron and pour some egg mixture into iron.
• Let cook 5 min or until eggs are cooked. • Garnish with salsa or avocado, whatever you feel like.

What would you guys put in your eggos?
