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 Β way, you can mashup your own fixins into the meat before cooking!

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

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
