When you are starting to make changes to heal your body, the key to making those changes stick is to make it simple and make it easy whenever possible.
First thing in the morning, I make a hot cup of water with lemon and steep some green tea. You can check out my post on why this is so beneficial for your body. I also take my probiotic at this time as well.
After your cup of tea has been enjoyed, time to make your easy peasy breakfast.
- 1. Take a small sauce pan, turn to medium heat and put some ghee in the middle to melt. Be sure to use farm fresh grain-fed free-range eggs whenever you can afford to as they are definitely better nutritionally.
2. If you are the only one eating, crack two eggs into the pan and cover with a lid. If you are making eggs for you and a friend/spouse, you can cook up to four eggs in the same small pan and cover with a lid. Set your timer immediately for 3 minutes for easy sunny-side up eggs.
3. While your eggs are simmering away, take a Spinach Asiago Chicken Sausage* and pop it in the microwave, cover with a paper towel (sometimes the meat and cheese can simmer and pop) and set for one-minute. Once the timer goes off, remove from microwave, place on plate and cut. About this time, your eggs will be finishing up.
*I like the Daily Chef Chicken Sausage from Sams Club since we purchase bulk whenever possible. I think I spent about $16 for one package of 15 sausages — coming out to a little over $1 a sausage. If you don’t have a large family like ours (I have five children), you can separate the three pack and put two in the freezer while you use one during the week.

4. Finally, when the timer goes off for the eggs, remove lid and slide your eggs onto your plate. Add a dash of kelp* granules for seasoning. If you like salt and pepper, throw it on there as well. Enjoy!
*Why kelp granules? Well kelp is full of iodine (among other beneficial minerals) and many are iodine deficient. The US recommended daily intake of iodine is 150 micrograms (mcg) per day for most adults, and about twice that for pregnant and nursing women. Iodine helps your entire body and especially your thyroid function well. You can learn more on how it can even help your kids grow their cognitive abilities — read about it here.
