Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

Since I was a little kid eating scrambled eggs with cheese for dinner, I have loved traditional breakfast foods at not so traditional times.

Really, is there anything better than taking say Eggo Homestyle Waffles and Buttermilk Pancakes and making avocado toast?  I didn’t think so.

Getting ready to make avocado toast

Eggo Pancakes and Waffles now have a new formulation that is free from artificials with colors and flavors coming from natural sources, which I love because real food is awesome.  And the last week of February check out the Target Circular when Eggo products will be $1.99!  As if we needed another reason to shop at Target 🙂

Once you stock up on Eggo products, feel free to let your creativity shine through, making different, fun things for breakfast, lunch, snack time, and even dinner.

You’ll definitely want to start with my Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast.  As if avocado toast couldn’t get any better, I went and put it on Eggo Waffles and Pancakes.  While this is an awesome snack, it can also make a fun dinner that is ready in a flash.

I topped my Waffles and Pancakes with avocado (of course), radish, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, dried cherries, and pecans.  I loved this combination because it’s sweet and savory with lots of texture.  But the point of this dish is to use up all those leftover fruits and vegetables hanging out in the refrigerator and some of the nuts and dried fruit lingering in the pantry.

Play around with flavor and texture pairings until you find the perfect Eggo avocado toast for you.  The best thing about this dish is that it can totally suit your tastes.  Oh, and that it takes practically no time to prepare and takes Eggo Waffles and Pancakes to the next level.  Plus, this is fancy enough to serve for a party.  Talk about a conversation starter!

Be sure to pick up some Eggo products and have some fun in the kitchen!

Easy One Pan Oven Roasted Pork Chops #SundaySupper

 

Easy One Pan Oven Roasted Pork Chops

I mentioned briefly the other day that I am doing a Whole30.  I am a little more than a week in now and loving it.  You are probably wondering why I chose to embark on this adventure.  It is really to reset my mind, body, and spirit.  You can probably tell by some of my posts that I am a bit down, and while what I eat doesn’t seem to have a correlation to getting an agent, you never know.

I hadn’t been feeling my best physically or mentally, and while I do not expect this to cure me, a pledge to only eat real food for a month can’t be a bad thing.

I eat this way a lot of the time.  I’ve had to adjust breakfast since oatmeal, muffins, and such are out of the question.  Lunch and dinner haven’t changed much and dessert is gone except for a few raisins, which are surprisingly tasty when you want something sweet.

I’ll admit to a couple cheats.  I am a big believer in supplements, including Airborne.  I know, it’s probably junk that doesn’t work, but it makes me feel better just knowing I am taking it.  I’m not giving it up or my Omega-3 or biotin, which contain sugar and soy respectively.  I didn’t want to skip the Whole30 just because I wouldn’t give these things up, and I didn’t want to give them up to abide strictly and then worry.  Life is about compromise, people.

Also the program restricts certain foods even if they fit into the edible categories.  For example, potatoes are allowed, but potato chips are not.  Look, a potato is a potato, and I can eat just one.  Also, since I don’t eat chicken, eventually I just need a source of food.  I’m following the ingredient restrictions carefully, but an approved food is an approved food.  Period.

While I do think I have a little more energy than normal and have been feeling pretty good, I really love the ways the Whole30 has pushed me culinarily.  I am eating more of the foods I crave but typically shy away from for fear they are unhealthy or will weigh me down, when it reality it is other foods that are doing this.

Beef, pork, sweet potatoes, potatoes are filling my diet in satisfying ways that really keep cravings at bay, though I would happily take a scoop of ice cream or a slice of pie right now.  Protein, fruits, and vegetables are really rather delightful and I appreciate that now more than ever.

These Easy One Pan Oven Roasted Pork Chops are one of my favorite dinners I’ve made.  One, yes, they are easy.  Everything goes on a giant sheet pan and into the oven.  Those are the dinners of my dreams.  Two, this is healthy, gluten free, and crazy flavorful.  Three, the pork is tender and succulent, even if you overcook it a little.

Feel free two swap out the vegetables for ones you love and have on hand, but the mushrooms really are a star here.  They create a savory umami bomb of a broth that keeps the pork moist and is great drizzled over the finished dish.

The Whole30 is one challenge I know I can conquer!
