Made this ahhhhhhmazing egg bake this morning and I just had to share it!!!

Started with these ingredients:

image

Eggs, veggies including (but not limited to) baby bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, fresh dill and rosemary and Aidel’s brand chicken & apple sausage.

Whisk eggs with desired seasonings. Chop veggies to desired size. MAKE SURE to grease your pans people. You don’t want anything stuck or leftover, especially with this yummy recipe. Combine together eggs w other ingredients and place in a baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 35-50 mins (depends on how well done you like your eggs).

Let cool for about 10 mins or top off with some cheese and throw it back in the oven at 275 degrees for another 10 minutes or so.

Great pairings for this meal are bacon, avocado, ketchup, sour cream or even some salsa!

Happy baking everyone!

I line the dish with butter to make sure my potatoes don’t stick and it also helps maintain their crispy coated exterior.

So now that Thanksgiving is officially over, it’s time to set things into motion, not just now but for good. I’m tired of fast food, I’m tired of frozen dinners, I’m tired of being broke because of mindless eating habits, but most of all, I’m simply tired of being tired dammit!!

I want change, inside and out, I want a new lean, healthy, fit, toned, sexy & small body and really, who’s going to stop me? I dare you to even try. Step by step, inch by inch, pound by pound, this WILL happen!

I’m putting this out there because I have nothing to lose but everything to gain, including muscle mass of course. It’s been a few months now that I’ve signed up as a coach with BeachBody and its about time I take advantage of all the resources, tools and most importantly, the accountability groups set in place already to help people reach their fitness goals. (If you don’t know what BeachBody is or have never heard of it before, it’s the company that created workout programs such as P90x, Hip Hop Abs and Brazilian Butt Lift.)

I’m not saying this to try to sell you on something. I’m not asking you to join, pay or even commit, those are all decisions I have made and you’ll have to do the same for yourself, one day. All I do ask is that you continue reading and commenting on this journey of mine. I’m holding myself accountable and could use any encouragement, tips, hints or recipes along the way. (questions are welcome too)

NO MORE EXCUSES is my new motto. I’ve made my decision and have begun my commitment towards a new and healthier life. As you can see in the picture, my fridge doesn’t contain ALL healthy ingredients, I should have included a pic of the freezer lol, just kidding…obviously I just got back from the market and you can see that most of the items I purchased were on the healthy scale.

My point is I’m trying to make conscious decisions that will help me with my goals and I feel once I can do this consistently, it will become second nature to me. I know this will take time, like all ingrained habits are, but I know it will all be worth it in the end.

I know everyone waits til the holidays are over to start their new year diets, I’m just trying to be a step ahead of the game this year and my proof will be in my progress with pictures and posts. Good luck to me and everyone else out there setting and achieving whatever goals they make for themselves, JUST DO IT!!!
