Breakfast Of Champions

We have all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It breaks our overnight fasting, and jump starts our day. On days that I am able to casually wake up, I like to make a breakfast fit for a nutrient craving king. 

The plate must start with half fruit. 

Apple and orange

Then add protein.

Eggs and peanut butter

Lastly add the pleasurable item of the meal, because what is a good meal without something to indulge in. 

Morning star sausage patty with sharp cheddar on a homemade biscuit

ALWAYS save the best for last. Even if it’s just one bite. 

Homemade biscuits 

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add coconut oil and mix until dough resembles a crumb like texture.
  3. Add milk and stir with fork until the dough pulls away from the bowl.
  4. Roll, knead, and love the dough on a floured surface until no longer sticky. Roll into a log.
  5. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Cut dough log into 1/2 inch thick pieces, or larger if you desire, and place onto the baking sheet. Spray or rub olive oil on the tops of the biscuits and put into the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Enjoy!

    Nice, plate, niiiiiice. Again with the ‘biscuit’ term… I would call that either an ‘English Muffin’ or we have these things call ‘Muffin Splits,’ that look like that. Nothing to do with a sweet muffin though. It’s just all so confusing! But also fascinating all these language quirks between countries.

    As long as it tastes good!!

      Bahaha an English muffin to me is more of a soft bready member of the bagel family almost. I do find it interesting that we call similar foods such different terms!! Either way yes…as long as it tastes good and booyyy it did!

    I always save the best for last too! I can eat biscuits with every single meal and the fact that they are so easy to make is dangerous..
