What I’m Eating – Poached Eggs, Carrot Cake & Brownie Bites

Brownies & Carrot Cake

The biggest question I get from everybody is what do I have for breakfast now that I’m living this Primal lifestyle.  I eat lots of eggs and I enjoy them.  During the week it’s mainly scrambled with different variations of flavour and we probably go through five or six cartons of eggs a week.  During the weekends I’m a big fan of a simple breakfast, ‘Poached Eggs & Bacon’.  However the wife doesn’t share my constant love for eggs every single day, so when weekends come she usually tries other recipes.

This weekend since I’m still bed ridden she decided to make two different dishes, Paleo Grubs’ Grain-Free Raw Brownie Bites & Multiply Delicious’ Gluten-Free (Paleo) Carrot Muffins, seen above.  The only change she made was instead of walnuts she used pistachios in the brownies.

I still had at least 4 poached eggs with my bacon!
