The blog has been quiet for a week because my husband and I took a trip to the Wisconsin Dells. We had a great time hiking and riding the water slides! We stayed at Chula Vista resorts because I wanted a kitchen to cook our food in. We cooked breakfast and lunch daily and ended up eating out during the evening. They have a TON of Paleo safe options there. The key is to have them hold the cheese and in Wisconsin they put cheese on EVERYTHING!! Prior to checking in, we made a stop at Whole Foods in Schamburg and Trader Joe’s in Madison to stock the fridge and drawer full of yummy food (see below). We filled the fridge with vegetables, fruits, meat and coconut products. The drawer was full of munchies (plantain chips, kale chips, apples, lemons, almond butter and the list goes on).
Every morning I normally start with a protein shake; however, being on vacation we started every meal with eggs. We love eggs sunny side up, poached and scrambled. Growing up my father use to make scrambles every weekend. He would mince up potatoes and slowly cook them and then add eggs. Occasionally, I find myself doing this with sweet potatoes. However, we replace potatoes with cabbage for breakfast items. We make Paleo hash browns, which resemble potato hash browns. This recipe takes shredded cabbage and eggs (two easy ingredients)!
Cabbage and Egg ScrambleIngredients 1 lb of cabbage thinly sliced 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion 6 eggs 2 tbsp coconut oil salt & pepper to taste
Directions 1. Place coconut oil in a large skillet and allow it to melt and get hot. 2. Add cabbage and onion to hot pan and mix the coconut oil with the ingredients. 3. Cook the mixture for 10 minutes on medium heat, mixing every 2 or 3 mixes. You do not want to burn the mixture. 4. Crack open the eggs and whisk together in a bowl. 5. When onions and cabbage are soft and translucent, pour eggs over mixture. 6. Continue stirring the eggs into the mixture and incorporating the two items together. 7. Serve the dish when the eggs are cooked. Are we friends on Instagram? If not, we should be! I think a picture speaks a million words. You can find me on Instagram here!
