Another one of our favorite Whole30 recipes is this simple and flavorful dish. We like to prepare it with a higher ratio of vegetables that some other versions out there because it seems to give it a better texture and depth of flavor. This meal is easy to make and can be prepared in less than 15 minutes if you pre-cut your vegetables.
Prep Time - 15 minutes
Cook Time - 15 minutes

Farmers Market Breakfast Casserole
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.
This Farmers Market Casserole was taken and altered a tad from twohealthykitchens.com. They have some great tips and healthy eating recipes. Check them out!

This month's "Wine & Dine" post is a bread that I made just last night and fell completely in love with. I absolutely crave bread.... all the time! I love it! So, when I discover a new bread, that's actually not completely horrible for me I love it even more! I was so excited to share with all of you!
I altered the recipe just a tad, as I will discuss later. However, I originally borrowed this recipe! Click for Recipe!
* My Touch *
- Instead of 2 Cups of All purpose flour I substituted 1 cup with Wheat Flour
- I added a cup of Bananas
- Next time I plan to add some oats, or even some walnuts :)
