Pepper-Dogs - WooF-WooF!

For some reason I'm all about breakfast - it's my favorite meal of the day ..... well except for dessert - but I guess that's not really a meal.... hehe...

When I'm on the night shift I have the whole morning to create something tasty and wonderful - I LOVE IT! And when I'm on the day shift... I have the whole evening to prepare to make something quick & easy, tasty and wonderful for breakfast next day .... ;)
See where I'm going with this?

 It's all about the breakfast!!

Bacon, 2 soft-boiled eggs and carrot and pepper sticks
Stuffed peppres and corn

Green beans with bacon and left over pork loin with home made mayo
Bacon and scrambled eggs with pineapple and blueberries

Cherries with "pepper-dogs" and an egg-muffin and blackberry/avocado smoothie

This last "recipe" is actually a new house-hold favorite! And it's the easiest recipe you'll ever learn

Peppers...... check
Cocktail sausages ...... check
Bacon..... Ooooooh yeah!

Voila.... Pepper Dogs!!!!!!! 

Even doggies like Pepper Dogs! 
Awwwwwuuuuuu! :) 
And of course they got one each.... they are so spoiled... 

5 days left on Whole 30 - I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.... 
but actually I feel incredible - sleeping better then ever - more energy and looking quite good, if I do say so myself. I haven't weighed my selv, but all my clothes af looser and I feel lighter somehow. 
I'm excited to see the numer on the scale and measure tape..... 
5 days and counting.....

Cake!!!! (for breakfast!)

So ... 12 days ago, I made a wild decision....
I started the Whole30 challenge!!! For those of you, who don't know what that is, it basically means eating clean - no sugars of any kind (not even artificial), no dairy (ARGH! Bye cheese... see you in 30 days!), no grains, legumes or white potatoes (ok - that's not too bad!), but...but...but....I can have fruit!

Since starting to eat the LowCarb High Fat way, I really haven't eaten much fruit, except berries moderatly. So it's been a real pleasure enjoying fruit again!

I've been surfing the web for inspiration for meals, and so far I've created som really tasty things:

Ham and egg cupcakes - easy and YUM!
Green smoothie - spinach, fruit and coconut cream in blender and voila!

Stuffed pepper and chopped veggies.

Apple Bumpkin with fresh strawberries
YES - cake for breakfast! 

"French-fry"-green beans (cause they taste just like french fries!!!)
with bacon!!
I thought this would be much more difficult - and the first 4 days were really tough, mostly getting to grips with what to eat, when I suddenly couldn't eat yoghurt, cheese or even drink my lovely coffee + milk!!!
But now the choices are simple - fresh veggies, roasted/cooked veggies and meat og and FRUIT!
O.M.G. have I missed my fruit.
I've even found a new appreciation for tea, which I actually used to drink quite a lot of, until I met coffee...

So now I'm on to day 13 today and I feel really wonderful - filled with this strange sense of energy. I have been sleeping better then ever! I fall asleep in a matter of minutes (used to take me 30 min - 1 hour) and sleep until i wake (usually before the alarm too!) - and this is the first time in years! So there must be something about it....

I'm excited to see what the next 17 days will bring - but so far so good!

Pennie :)
