Bacon Breakfast Sausage with Apple Balsamic Glaze


2015/05/06 by nikkiledford

You’re at your favorite breakfast spot, ordering your usual breakfast plate and the server asks you that ubiquitous breakfast question, “Bacon or sausage?”. Was there ever a more difficult decision? I mean, bacon is delicious. We all know that. But breakfast sausage is pretty enticing as well. I say don’t choose, just have both!

I love that whole foods has been carrying their 365 breakfasty sausage in bulk. That  way, you can mashup your own fixins into the meat before cooking!

If you’re feeling particularly inspired, don’t skip out on making the glaze. It will change your life… or maybe just your morning.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
