Mission Completed: Learned How To Perfectly Fry An Egg

I love breakfast, especially breakfast involving eggs. I could eat breakfast for any meal (who needs lunch food? It’s usually overrated). So, normally, breakfast and eggs are a must have every day for me. I generally mix-up the different ways I eat eggs…scrambled with a variety of ingredients, an omelette, poached, or over-easy. I have always liked sunny-side up eggs when I go out for breakfast, but never really attempted to make eggs sunny-side up at home because I was always intimidated by the process (lame, I know). I have tried a few times before and always failed to make it sunny-side up, so I just stopped going there. My eggs basically always came out folded over anyways, so it seemed better just to go with over-easy method I knew.

My (Paleo) Story

My introduction to the Paleo lifestyle actually came from my husband, T. He had a co-worker who talked to him about how his wife has had life-long heart issues, had been frequently in and out of hospitals, and on medication almost her whole life. Since switching to the Paleo diet, she had improved her health to the point that she has significantly decreased her need for medication that she has previously relied on and drastically reduced hospital visits. At first, I thought my husband was crazy, and that there was no way I could follow the diet because it was too strict. However, as we discussed it more, I became intrigued. As someone who has always been plagued by stomach and digestive issues, I began to wonder if it might help me.

The “T”

Well, today’s workout was a doozy, considering we spent an incredibly fun week in San Diego with family at the beach, eating, and drinking.

Count on CrossFit for the wake up call and the smack in the face to let you know that it’s time to kick your butt into gear again. After all the traveling in July, I am going to use this next month to reset my diet and get into shape before we go to Peru to hike the Inca Trail. I can’t wait, but I hope I am in good enough shape to enjoy it!

Coconut Whipped Cream

This recipe is incredibly delicious and versatile, yet so simple to make!

I usually make this coconut whipped cream recipe to use for waffles, but it is really great for any desserts or drinks/smoothies you make as well.  I like that the whipped cream is not that sweet, as it has a great flavor that is not over powered by the sweetener.  If you would prefer to make it a little sweeter, you can always add more maple syrup or other sweetener before you whip the cream.

(Paleo) Breakfast at Wimbledon

Two of my favorite things…breakfast and tennis!  Couple those with a potential epic tennis match at the my favorite Grand Slam in tennis, and I have myself one awesome Sunday morning.  The only thing that could make this better would be actually sitting with T in Centre Court in England.  Maybe next year…
