Bacon Bit Egg Bites!

I’ve posted some egg bite recipes before.  I love them because you can whip out a dozen when you have a few minutes to spare, and you have healthy breakfasts for the rest of the week!  Ones with protein to keep your body happy!  Because I love the idea so much, I decided it was far time to create a new adaptation to keep it exciting!  So here is my  new flavor!!  Bacon Egg Bites!

Here’s what you need:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1-2 Tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk (Or Greek Yogurt.  Almond Milk makes it more light and airy, yogurt is fluffy but more dense if that makes sense.)
  • 2 Tbsp Cooked Turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp Red Onion, Minced
  • 1 Tbsp Chives
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Butter for pan

 

And here’s how you do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Crack all the eggs into a bowl.  Add the other ingredients and whisk together until combined and fluffy.
  3. Grease the bottom a mini muffin tin with your butter.
  4. Fill all the cups 3/4 full with the egg mixture.
  5. Slide into your heated oven and cook until starting to brown, and the middles are solid.  This should take between 20 and 30 minutes!!

 

Yay healthy easy breakfast!!  Enjoy guys!!

Chicken with Artichoke Cream Sauce

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. This is one of those recipes I repinned a long time ago, thinking “Gosh I want to make that, but there are multiple things in it that I shouldn’t have…” with a determination in the back of my mind somewhere to make it my own, and make it healthier.  I am so proud of me for finally carrying through!!  So delicious.  I really should have eaten lunch before typing this.  Ugh.  I want it nooooow.  I wish the pictures did it justice, because it was super tasty.   I mean, come on, how can an artichoke cream sauce NOT be, haha?!  Enough talking.  Let’s get down to business, yo.  

Adapted from tasteofhome.com.
So, here’s what you need:

  • 4-6 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Herbamare (or salt) and Pepper to taste.
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 Lemons
  • 2 Tbsp Butter or Ghee
  • 2 Tbsp Gluten Free Flour (or the healthiest flour substance you have)
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 C Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • About 14 oz Artichoke Hearts, quartered (Drained)
  • 3 Tbsp Parmesan, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp fresh Basil, minced
  • 2 Tbsp White Wine or Chicken Broth

 

And here’s how you do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Season your chicken breasts with Herbamare (or salt) and Pepper.
  3. Melt coconut oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat.  Brown chicken for a few minutes on each side.  You want to get a nice brown color on them!!
  4. Squeeze juice of one lemon over breasts and slide chicken into preheated oven and cook for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through (juices run clear.)
  5. Now start your sauce!  Melt your butter or Ghee in a pot over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant, just about 60 seconds or so.
  6. Whisk in flour to create a paste, then slowly add the almond milk.  Bring to a boil and turn down to  a simmer until thickened to your desired consistency.
  7. Stir in remaining ingredients (including juice of about half a lemon), and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve over hot chicken breasts.  Enjoy the creamy, decently healthy goodness!!!
