Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Preparing and consuming a healthy breakfast each day can be time consuming. I want to prepare my breakfast just so and then…I have to wash and put away all the tools and utensils I used before I rush out the door or head to what is next on my to-do list.

That’s why when I can create a ‘make and bake’ pan of anything, I know I have saved myself time and stress in my day.

These make-ahead breakfast burritos are easy to put together in the evening after you’ve watched the latest episode of your favorite show. Then pop them in the refrigerator, switch off the light in the kitchen and get your Zzzzz’s.

In the morning, remove your pan, pop in the oven and by the time you have your morning shower and coffee in hand, your burritos are fresh out of the oven.

The next mornings, simply pop a portion in the microwave and you have just made more time for another cup of coffee or to catch up on your to-do list – with little to no preparation and clean up! I’ve even divided them into meal prep containers to make my morning even more manageable! The small, little things you can do each morning to make it more smooth. You never know when you’re going to hit a bump!

Pull-Apart Bread, Keto

A few months ago I came across THE best Keto Pull-Apart Bread (ever – it’s in the title!) from eatwell101. I’ve shared it a few times, however I had several people say to access the recipe isn’t super easy. I’m all about making things super easy! So here is the recipe for what is soon to become your most favorite Keto and low carb Bread.

This pull-apart bread goes very nicely with any dinner. My kids have told me this is their favorite bread to have with dinner. I’m totally OK with this, until I realized that leaves me less for leftovers!

I have also found it is great in the morning, split in half and topped with a poached egg. No kidding. Try it!

Spaghetti Squash “Mash”

You may be asking, why spaghetti squash mash? Isn’t there already the classic mashed potatoes and the alternative cauliflower mash? Yes, yes there is.

However, on my journey of reducing the amount of carbohydrates and sugars in my diet, I’ve been seeking vegetables that give a similar flavor and texture of traditional vegetable dishes, but provide reduced carbohydrates.

I’ve been trying different recipes with a spaghetti squash like stuffing them with meat, sauce and cheese or using the scraped out squash as noodle.

Then I saw a beautiful “plated” Instagram photo a while ago and the base of the dish was “spaghetti squash mash”. So I immediately clicked on it and saw the simplicity of it (especially since I had a spaghetti squash in the pantry).

I made it and I was hooked! The texture is a little thinner that mashed potatoes, but the richness of the squash with the flavor of the parmesan will surely delight your tastebuds.

Steak & Cauliflower Casserole

Enter my new favorite vegetable friend – the Cauliflower. This little gem is so versatile! It can be a substitute for rice, potatoes and did you even know…pasta?! That’s right – it tastefully replaces pasta in this dish. You won’t even know it.
