Mer's FAV super easy protein packed Breakfast

introducing the most unappealing {super weird} but extremely delish/easy/fast/inexpensive breakfast...

eggs with coconut oatmeal! {yes, you read that right!}

FAST. EASY. CHEAP. PROTEIN FILLED.jpg

I have been following the Endo Diet almost 3 years now. I was super strict for 1 whole year & then realized that's just not how I want/can live. I've learned to listen to my body & realized how truly unique each Endo Monster 👻 is & our bodies are so different.

For my first year following the Endo diet I removed all eggs. The reason for removing eggs from your diet when you have a chronic illness like we do is because eggs are like a binder.. I mean think about when you cook - you use eggs to hold things together, right? So that's what happens to our insides. But I really like eggs, they are amazingly healthy for you {not just the egg white either. the entire egg🍳} & they really keep me full all morning. What I do is just get really great organic brown eggs from hens that are vegetarian feed without any extra BS like hormones or pesticides. I limit my egg in take to about 3-4x a week & have found my body really is happy with that. Any more than 4x a week my insides don't like me! 💩💩💩💩

ingredients: 

directions:

cook oatmeal as per instructions. in non stick pan, scramble your eggs. grab a big bowl & combine eggs into oatmeal with a tbsp coconut oil & pink himalayan salt.

mer's tip:
read through directions on your oatmeal {some brands take longer than others - my personal fav is the trader joe's brand that takes 5 mins!) 

Try it out for about 2 weeks to really see what your body thinks of eggs.

Love Yourself

Ok where my girls at that have grown up HATING your legs or part of your body {or like me hating everything-head to toe}

I just had one of those days where everything WORKS! Hair, makeup, outfit, shoes & jewelry #onPoint 💅💃💁 & realized something that I have been doing for only a short period of time.. When I feel cute & good I take full blown selfies! 📷📷 like no shame, no trying to stand up tall, suck things in, turn to my "good side" 😂😂😂 I can finally for the first time in 29 years legit look myself in the eye & be so happy with who I am inside & out. 

If you have ever had those feelings of self hate you aren't alone. The first time I wore shorts in public for an event was 4 years ago. I've always hated my legs more than anything & here I am proud of them in some super short white shorts!

Quick dinner! Turkey Chili with Kasha & Kale

Last night was one of those nights when you finally get home after 8pm and dread the fact that you still have to make dinner!

I'm sure you've had one of those nights too, right? But instead of just getting something bad for myself I decided to treat myself to a nice easy & HEALTHY dinner!

Insert Turkey Chili with Kasha & Kale! I had some left over turkey chili from the weekend that I reheated and made Kasha and tossed it altogether with organic kale!!

This was my first time making Kasha and I will admit I really messed up the first round!! Once I got it right though, it was so easy and delish!! I will definitely be coming up with more recipes that include kasha! (Yes, kasha is on the Endo Therapy diet approved list!)

In one pan, i reheated my turkey chili (recipe to come!). I try to avoid using microwaves as much as possible. If you really want to know why, leave a comment and I will explain more!

In another pan, I made the kasha:

1. In a medium sauce pan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. 2. Add 1 cup Kasha, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to boiling liquid and stir. 3. Cover; reduce heat to Low. Simmer 10 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. 4. Fluff Kasha lightly with fork before serving. Makes 4 cups (great for more leftovers!!)

Then all I did was chop up some freshly washed organic kale and mixed it all together on a plate! I added a little hot sauce  to my plate for an added boost to my metabolism!

 This meal took only 15 minutes and was so satisfying! I made enough to take with me as my lunch for the next day!

To quote my boyfriends dad whom I love "Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance" = leftovers and cooking extra is key!!
