I'm midway through day 10 of my Whole 30 and still holding up just fine! In my first week, I made a large batch of breakfasts [will share my favorite non-egg breakfast soon!]. I really prefer that route, since all I need to do is reheat first thing in the morning and I've got a delicious meal ready. Unfortunately, I ran into some hiccups when it came to getting all the ingredients for this week's make ahead breakfasts, so I've been cooking eggs more than usual to compensate. It's pretty standard to go egg heavy with Whole 30ers, but I'm not an everyday egg eater. I get bored of them fairly fast, so I've been combating that by changing up my quick egg scramble each morning. I'm honestly not a huge breakfast person, and it's probably the most challenging part to this Whole30 routine for me, but I am getting better eating a substantial meal in the morning!
Scrambled Eggs with Chicken Sausage, Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes and Shallots
TIP: It can be slightly tricky to find Whole30 compliant sausage at the grocery [so much sausage has added sugar!] , but we were able to find one that's incredibly delicious. As I discover great ingredients like this sausage, I'm creating a list of quick store bought ingredients that I can refer to each week. It makes grocery shopping much simpler! As for the cherry tomatoes, I had no idea how tasty they would be when paired with eggs, but I love them! We are fortunate in the south to still have really sweet cherry tomatoes this late into the year, so I'll be eating them up while I still can!
Scrambled Eggs with Sweet Potatoes and Roasted Garlic Aioli
TIP: Personally I could eat sweet potatoes during EVERY meal...I love them! These were leftover roasted sweet potato fries from the night before. Normally I'd just eat the potatoes with my eggs and not need anything else, but the roasted garlic aioli I made was SO good, I allowed myself a little bit to dip my sweet potatoes and eggs in.
Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Turkey and Baby Arugula
TIP: Arugula isn't for everyone, especially if you're not a fan of bitter greens. I didn't sauté the arugula, rather I just allowed it to wilt in the warmth of the eggs and turkey. Try and stick to baby arugula with breakfast, as it's much less bitter than it's grown up counterpart but still imparts that peppery bite I like so much. Don't forget to make sure you find cold cuts that are Whole 30 compliant. The Whole Foods 365 brand of Smoked Turkey Breast is an affordable and Whole 30 friendly option [and tastes great!]
Scrambled Eggs with Baby Spinach and homemade roasted Garlic Turkey Sausage.
TIP: Make a one pound batch of these little sausage bites at the start of the week so you can easily reheat them and serve alongside eggs or vegetables in the morning. My mom also would add them to her lunch as part of a salad. I didn't love the recipe for these, so I'm going to work on an improved version and I'll share that once I do!
