For so many of us eating is routine, especially during the work week. Quick and simple, that’s all we have time for. Our hectic lives often relegate eating as yet another mindless task. We go through the motions, anything more causes an imbalance in our daily structure, and for some, causes more unneeded stress. The last thing on our minds is creating any additional work on the weekend. Unfortunately, the trade is often health for time. Little do most of us know, the quick processed meals on the go (loaded with sugar and carbs) actually cause more stress on our bodies.

As we have mentioned in previous posts, when you choose to make healthier lifestyle changes, they can first appear like more work. Once you get into the swing of things, it all becomes effortless and before you know it, you have created a new, healthier routine, that in-turn makes your busy, hard working schedule more proactive and efficient.
For this post, we decided to put together a quick breakfast idea. This is a classic “all-American” breakfast, which all of us are perfectly capable of creating with great success: Sunny Side-Up Eggs with Bacon. The idea behind this meal was to show that eating “primally” can be as simple as throwing a few eggs and bacon in a frying pan, and Bill learned a handy new way to cook eggs in the process.
- 2-4 omega 3 eggs
- 3-6 strips of bacon
- 1 tsp virgin coconut oil, kerrygold butter, or ghee
- Place strips of bacon in large frying pan, and cook on medium heat. Cook bacon evenly on both sides, flipping often.
- Heat a small amount your preferred choice of cooking oil in a separate skilled (Hayley prefers coconut oil, Bill prefers ghee).
- Crack eggs into pan. Fry eggs for 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
- Flip eggs and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
We both enjoy eggs with fresh diced tomato, ground pepper, and a dash of kosher salt. Eggs can be complimented by a variety of side dishes at breakfast, including: bacon, fresh fruit, veggies, turkey sausage, and always with a nice hot cup of coffee. Use your imagination – mix it up to see what works for you and your own tastes.
As always, enjoy!
