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.
