Egg Free Breakfast Skillet for One

Eggs are not a favorite of mine, in fact, for years, I wouldn’t touch one.

As a mom though, I realize how great eggs are…they are quick and so good for growing bodies. Sadly, I am reacting to eggs.

I didn’t think it would be a big deal being as I don’t really care of them, but my breakfasts have been sadly lacking.

Oatmeal and green smoothies were getting kind of old.

So, that is how my egg free breakfast skillet for one came about. It’s so easy. It’s also great for me to make enough to take some out for myself and then add eggs to it for the boys.

On the Trim Healthy Mama plan, this is an S meal.

Let’s talk cheese graters while were are here too. (affiliate link) This grater is great…it works well with a nice handle, but also, the measuring cup at the bottom has a rubber gripper so it doesn’t slip. Love it!

This dish is so easy but so satisfying. It was the first day in a while that I didn’t miss eggs yet felt like I had a ‘traditional breakfast’.

Sugar Free Strawberry Lemonade Slushie

My blender is getting a work out this summer. My boys play hard…that means those little bodies sweat! Phew. They are always coming in the house looking for a drink.

Most times they get a cold glass of water but I love surprising them with fruit slushies.

I’ll make a blender full and they will down it pretty fast. Now, I use a sugar free option for me, but my boys get honey in theirs. It makes this drink so good for them.

We use these (affiliate link) Spiderman cups for the boys. They love them and so do as they are BPA free….but they are great at keeping the drinks cold without the cup sweating.

The (affiliate link) stainless steel straws are a favorite here too. You’ll love them if you don’t have any yet. They really make ice cold drinks feel extra cold.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken

One of my all time favorite aromas in a kitchen is the smell of sauteing garlic.

Pure.bliss. (Note if you do not love garlic, this recipe is not for you)

Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Seriously, if I run out of garlic, my kitchen closes down. I don’t know how to cook with out. (Okay, I’m a tad bit exaggerating but this Italian girl loves her garlic!)

This recipe is quick and simple….but it feels like you are eating out. It doesn’t take fancy skills or lots of expensive ingredients to make a great dish.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken is good enough to stand alone but is wonderful over pasta. Or, if you are gluten-free, like me, try it over zucchini noodles. This (Amazon link) tool to make ‘zoodles’ has been worth the investment. I use it several times a week.

You can also vary the amount of garlic you use, but like I said, I love garlic so I use a lot. My husband got me this (Amazon link) gadget to mince up garlic and I use it over my garlic press any day.

If you are on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, this is for a sure an S meal.

Bruschetta Noodles :grain free:

I have talked about my love of garlic before but have I told you, I really love basil too? It is like a pure taste of summer to be able to go out and pick a piece from your garden and add it to your food.

One of my favorite dishes to make in the summer is bruschetta and while I have no issue just eating it with a spoon, I do like to have it on bread. That is kind of an issue since I’m gluten-free an am not really eating very many grains.

Brucshetta Noodles :Grain Free:

My kids asked for mac and cheese for lunch so I decided I’d have zucchini noodles. (We are LOVING the spiralizer!!) Affiliate link

This came together so fast and I was kind of sad I was out of squash so that I couldn’t have more.

This dish is full of health benefits, from the lycopene from the tomatoes, iron the in the spinach and  the allicin in the garlic….and that’s kind of just the tip of the iceberg.

My kids said mine smelled good and kept asking for bites…I really didn’t want to share with them. (Yup, I’m a mean mom!)

If you are on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, this is an S. If you want to add some protein, grilled chicken would be perfect!

Lemon Ginger Soda :Sugar Free:

Being sugar free can be kind of boring at times when it comes to summer drinks. I wish I could say that I don’t like soda or crave it, but that would be lying. I enjoy a good cherry coke.

Lemon ginger soda :sugar free:

I have been trying to be VERY good and remain sugar free but I am getting tired of drinking just water when I want something refreshing.

We have a (affiliate link) Soda Stream, which is great for making soda at home. Bubbly water makes drinks fun.

I’ve started playing with combinations of things that would make a soda flavor and that is how I came up with the lemon ginger soda. It lemon gives it a ‘sprite’ feeling while the ginger gives it a kick.

I use (affiliate link) Just like Sugar made from chicory root but you could easily you stevia or even honey for that matter if you aren’t avoid sugar.

And, you totally need a (affiliate link) stainless steel straw. For real. I never thought I’d love a straw as much as a do. But, when it is used in an ice drink, it just makes every sip so nice and cold. I love it. (And they come with a little brush that makes them easy to clean.)

To juice the ginger, I use a garlic press but you can use what ever tool you have handy. (I don’t even peel it!)
