Breakfast As I See It


Sometimes, I think I cannot face another egg for breakfast.

I require protein in the morning if I’m going to make it through the day with any amount of energy. But honestly, I can only handle so many mornings of eggs


and protein shakes.


I do like leftovers for breakfast but couldn’t find one single leftover in the fridge besides chili. Chili for breakfast is pushing it, don’t you think?

The cinnamon rolls would be fabulous though…but not much protein there.


So I went with a turkey sandwich. I was able to fit all of the important things in like protein, vegetables, and a carbohydrates.


The only thing missing was bacon, because we ate the rest of it yesterday on some fabulous BLT’s for lunch.

Now bacon is another story. Ahhh….bacon. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like it. And clearly, if you don’t like bacon – well, you’re just not going to be in my close circle of friends. Because bacon is a must if you’re going to enjoy life.

Have you tried the Applegate Sunday Bacon? So, very, good.


If I thought I could live on bacon and peanut butter & chocolate pancakes every morning, now THAT would be my mainstay. But we all know what a daily diet of  bacon, chocolate, and peanut butter will lead to. An embarrassing trip to the cardiologist where I would have to admit that I’d been having a love affair with all the wrong foods.


So to avoid that, “I wish I was invisible moment” with a heart doctor, I settled on a sandwich for breakfast this morning.

  1. Is Applegate available in Spokane? I have not heard of that brand. Told my pregnant daughter about it. Maybe Trader Joes??


    • I don’t think I’ve seen it at Trader Joe’s. I have purchased it at Fred Meyer in the valley. It’s in the deli section. They also make an excellent gluten free pepperoni that we use on pizza. They may also carry it at Huckleberry’s. 🙂


    • It’s the Udi’s brand. I accidentally grabbed two loaves of white instead of whole grain at the store. I was a little worried about how it would taste and hold up, but it was great. 🙂


  2. I don’t often have breakfast, per se, but I do eat my “lunch” between 9 and 10 every morning and very often it’s a turkey sandwich, though not nearly as fancy nor appealing as yours, I’m afraid. We’re in agreement, too, April, about bacon. I cannot imagine going without. Talk about a living hell. 🙂


    • Ha! You are SO funny! We just had bacon this morning and were discussing how awesome (in every way) it is. We probably eat it far too often…but such is life. 🙂
