Omelet and chicken sausage

WIAW #55: Eggs All Day

Today’s WIAW features eggs all day. They really are incredible 🙂 It kicked off with a different kind of breakfast for me. Instead of the usual omelet or quinoa flake breakfast bake, I had a couple of hard boiled eggs along with an apple, carrot and raisin salad left over from lunch the prior day. This could also be construed as an eat-whatever’s-in-my-work-fridge meal, but it was a pretty good sweet and savory combination.

While this combination was tasty, it wasn’t as large as my usual continuous breakfast-to-snack-to-lunches tend to be, so I had a goat milk yogurt and a pear about an hour afterwards.

Lunch was two slices of my Turkey Kale Frittata and a baked sweet potato. This is an old photo from when I had the same meal for dinner at some point, but honestly the frittata and sweet potato combo is so common with me I couldn’t tell you when!

For a mid-afternoon snack, sunflower butter spooned straight from the (almost empty) jar, washed down with decaf iced coffee.  That’s just the way it goes sometimes. And an apple, of course – not a day goes by without one.

Eggs in their third form of the day took place in an omelet as part of breakfast-for-dinner, something I do a lot. It’s just so easy to whip up an omelet and some veggies, potatoes, and/or chicken sausage and feel like I’ve “cooked” when I haven’t had time to meal prep.

The day’s sweet tooth was sated by a slice of grain free Chocolate Cherry Cake with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream. A delicious combination followed up by a few squares of Hu crunchy mint dark chocolate. We discovered the Hu chocolate bars, made in Brooklyn, a few months back, and enjoy the banana and mint flavors when they’re on sale (since they’re pretty pricey at $6-$7 a bar otherwise).

Do you stick to the same breakfast on weekdays or switch it up?

How many sweet versus savory snacks do you eat in a day?

  1. I usually eat the same breakfast on weekdays, but it’s fun to do pancakes or waffles on Saturdays. I often make a blogger’s breakfast recipe for Sunday mornings on Saturday night. That grain free cake looks absolutely delish. Also, did you like that goat milk yogurt? I haven’t had a goat milk yogurt that I like yet.

    1. It was delicious! But they’re really pricey. In NYC they cost around $2.25-$2.75 for one yogurt. I bought the one on sale to try it, and sometimes my boyfriend surprises me with that kind of thing as a treat, but definitely not in the regular budget. It might be different out in CO where you are,

  2. You and I have been on similar wavelengths with our eggs. I think 9/10 of my meals this week contained an omelette. But thank you for reminding me of hard boiled eggs – I always forget how good they are! Ontop of that sweet carrot/raisin slaw sounds divine.
    I’ve had that chocolate cake saved on my computer for a while now. Can’t wait till I have more time to bake, it’ll be first on my list.

  3. Breakfast for dinner is the absolute best thing, haven’t done that in far too long. I am a big oatmeal fan for breakfast but I like to change up the toppings and switch it up for toast, eggs, or yogurt a few days a week. I could pretty much eat eggs every day though, they are just so versatile.

  4. Ah goat’s milk yogurt is good stuff! I haven’t had it in a long time though. I go back and fourth with my yogurt eating habits. And eggs are always a good idea!
