For breakfast this morning I was craving one of my standards: dippy eggs and potatoes. So, I cooked up 1 egg over easy, heated up some of Jarrod’s special cajun oven potatoes, and a Thomas’ multi-grain english muffin.
Served up with a dollop of ketchup, of course! 😉
Delicious as always! Sometimes you just gotta go with the tried and true.

Breakfast #2 = Healthified Low-Carb Waffles
I recently picked up some Bob’s Red Mill Low-Carb baking mix, so I decided to try and make some low-carb waffles this morning.
I mixed up:
- 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Low-Carb baking mix
- 1/4 cup + 1 tsp Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk
- 1 egg white
- Sprinkling of cinnamon
Poured the mix onto the waffle iron, and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, I mixed up half a serving of PB2 and made it a little on the runny side (for drizzling!). I also microwaved 1/4 of fresh frozen strawberries. Once nice and hot, I added a sprinkling of Truvia to sweeten them up and a drizzle of Smuckers sugar free syrup.
This was a good first stab at low-carb waffles! Next time, I think I’ll add half a packet of the truvia to the actual waffle batter and also 1/8 tsp of baking powder to help the waffles perk up a bit. Definitely gonna play with this idea some more!

Every other larabar I’ve tried to date, I’ve taken 1 bite and tossed the rest. I actually enjoyed this one! Wow! I’m so surprised! And I LOVE the simple ingredients: Dates, Peanuts, Unsweetened Cherries, and Salt. Still keeping an eye out there for the coconut and key lime flavors…
