This latest recipe find has become the perfect addition to my bread obsession rotation. I'm always looking for healthier, new options to bake and recently most of my breads have used almond flour instead of wheat or white flour, but this recipe brings me right back to the whole-wheat/white flour combo that I've so traditionally loved. It hasn't disappointed and makes for a delicious afternoon treat, or side item to add to the breakfast plate. Just toast and top with a little melted butter and you have a delicious baked good that's unique and even on the healthier side of breads.
I have found, for me, that breakfast is the most challenging time of the day to try and eat healthy. I am, without a doubt, a breakfast gal! I love everything sweet - pancakes, waffles, muffins, crepes - you name it, I probably love it as long as it's sweet and breakfast-y.
Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good omelet, a bagel at times and even the traditional eggs, toast and a meat course, but I just can't pass up that sweet treat in the morning.
Well, guys I have decided to accept another challenge. This is turning out to be the year of accepting challenges - squat challenge, reading challenge, now eating challenge. I'm a little nervous to see what else is in the works for me this year, but there's nothing like testing yourself and your limits. So, I say bring it on!
I have been hearing non-stop about this Whole30 eating challenge that's been circulating my friends groups and social media. Now, I have never been one to diet or obsess over eating. Those who know me well know that I love nothing more than to grub on some yummy food. So, why I chose to accept this challenge of knocking out some of the yummiest foods from my menu for an entire month? I have no idea! But, here I am coming to the end of my first week of participating in the Whole30 challenge. Boy, it's going to be a long month. I'm excited, feeling good and always willing to accept a personal challenge - it's only 30 days, right?
I really started out experimenting with breakfast by the end of the first week. You can only eat an egg and a few slices of bacon so many days in a row before you start to realize you need to broaden your realm. So, one of the recipes that I made is one that I've made many times before. It's simple, and easy to mix up and switch if you need/want.
1/2 green pepper (diced)
1/2 onion (diced)
1/3 cup diced mushrooms
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Salsa (to taste) - It is important to check your Salsa label for the ingredients. Remember with the Whole30 you can't eat added sugars and/or certain add ins.
*You can always add sausage or bacon to this recipe

The Best's have been very busy lately. I have been finishing out the first semester of school while Josh has returned back to work after our summer trip abroad. His load has been filled with time committing projects. So, when it comes to eating we have been relying on casseroles and quick fixes.
