The Breakfast in Bed Series!

You may remember our master bedroom makeover. The comfy mattress, romantic atmosphere and chill vibe were the inspiration for a breakfast in bed recipe series. So far in this series we’ve made Cheesy Popovers with Chive Butter and Paleo/Whole 30 Eggs Benedict! Now it’s on to warm, flavorful, nourishing Huevos Rancheros!

Whole 30/Paleo/Keto Huevos Rancheros!

So How Do I Make Huevos Rancheros Paleo, Whole 30 and Keto Friendly?

Zucchini, that’s how! Instead of using a tortilla as a base I use a delicious and easy to make zucchini fritter. Then I top it with a fried egg and serve with my fresh pico de gallo. It’s a great way to work more veggies into your morning meal. And just look at that crispy fritter under that cute heart shaped egg. I offer two choices for the fritter: you can grate your own zucchini or if you want to make this meal even easier, use store bought spiraled zucchini and just give it a rough chop!

Make Your Own Guacamole and Pico de Gallo…or Don’t!

When it comes to food my motto is “make it from scratch unless it’s just as good and just as healthy store bought”. So if you have a local grocery store that carries delicious Pico de Gallo and fresh guacamole, go for it. If not, you can make mine <— easy recipes
