we went to the phonecia diner yesterday morning, and i had the "arnold bennett skillet". it was smoked trout, parmesan cheese, scrambled eggs, and creme fraiche served in a little cast iron skillet. it was fantastic. the smoked trout really stood out (in a good way) in what would otherwise just be scrambled eggs and cheese.

2 weeks to go before trout season open. i can't wait to make this at home after a chilly day on a stream.

Mixed steamed grains (quinoa, aramath (sp), brown rice, brown barley, chia seeds), steamed green beans, 2 poached eggs. I'm stuffed.

I really love smoked trout. It's delectable.

Our weekends are mainly a home mixed muesli type thing....almonds, pistachios and walnuts, a little desecated unsweetened coconut, dried cranberries and/or cherries and quinoa. Usually we have a yogurt too. Somewhat disgustingly to mainly dh and I share a bowl of the cereal. This is usually because he asks what I want for breakfast, I say nothing, then want an almond, then he gives me a couple of spoonfuls and before I know it we have finishe the bowl. He always gets two yogurts for. The fridge now, as by the time I have eaten half his bowl of muesli he knows I'll eat a yogurt.

Breakfast prep for the week:

1. Set up the rice steamer and cook a combination of grains. Divide into 1/2 c portions. Freeze 3, put three in the fridge.
2. Defrost greens so they are ready to nuke.
3. If you don't have time to prepare eggs, hardboil eggs so they are ready.
4. Juice beets, carrots, etc. I know, they say you shouldn't keep the juice for more than 24 hours, but I've kept it for 48 hours and haven't died.

Easy. In the morning, grab a portion of grains, nuke those while you are in the shower. Heat the greens, and you're ready to plate (I do my poached eggs in the microwave, but you could top the greens with chopped hardboiled eggs). Easy-peasy. No excuse not to have breakfast.

Can't handle the idea of grains in the morning? Prep a yogurt parfait ready to grab the night before.

Sunday is the day we have the nicest breakfast so, today, we had ham/cheese omelet, local slaughterhouse pork sausage patties, homemade bacon-and-egg bread, pineapple juice and Kentucky bourbon ball coffee from freshly-ground beans.

I set the table with the plates on bright green chargers, put out green metallic ceramic mugs for our coffee and we had cloth shamrock-printed napkins on our laps.

The breakfast was tasty and very filling and we were quite the leprechauns with all our green.

Emeril would be proud of me with all the piggie products!

I had an enormous navel orange. It was so juicy.

Today Sunday brunch will be mixed fruit salad, sourdough pancakes with butter and real Quebec maple syrup, 2 eggs, 2 bacon, 1 sausage patty, mimosas, and caramel machiattos, if I can remember how to work my espresso machine. It's been literally years since it's been out of the cupboard

Egg, cheese, bacon on a carb balance tortilla. I splurged and had about a 1/4 glass of orange juice. It was really good, and should keep me happy for a while. I've hit a little bump in the road, but I am still working on things. I am at 10# lost, and it is stuck there. I think I am still losing inches though, so I think things are ok. The weather is going to get nicer soon, and I will be out doing all kinds of things soon. Also it is easier once I am off for the summer and the stress levels are better. A good breakfast usually gets me going for a great day. congrats SB on your good breakfasts, and your total weight loss so far. Keep up the good work!
