Breakfast for Two

This is such a misleading post title. I kind of feel bad about even posting it because there is no juicy gossip to be had here…

Just eggs for me.

And eggs for Sullie.

I was feeling really over oatmeal, Greek yogurt, nut butters, etc. yesterday morning and it was the only morning of the week that I didn’t have to be at the gym extra early so I made an omelet for breakfast. Sauteed mushrooms, greens, tomatoes, goat cheese, one egg and one egg white. I cooked the leftover egg yolk for Sullie and added it to her morning kibbles. She pretty much thought it was the best morning ever. (Of course she patiently waited for her “Oink, Oink” command.”

I am that dog mom who routinely cooks extra of something to supplement Sullie’s food with and I own that proudly.

Other things I’ve fed myself over the last couple of days include leftover butternut squash and bean chili that was super doctored up with cheese, plain Greek yogurt, avocado and chips. I am going to have to send the rest of the leftovers off to the freezer. After 3-4 bowls, I’m done with it for now.

The last of the leftover risotto with leftover herbs de provence chicken with tomatoes and a salad with greens, pecans, dried cranberries, goat cheese and strawberries. For a girl who doesn’t love leftovers, I sure am proud of myself for eating in ever meal breakfast, lunch and dinner this week and using up all my leftovers!

Tempeh sandwiches…this was the best yet with avocado, tempeh, BBQ sauce, mixed greens and colby jack.

Time for a run, teaching BodyPump and meeting co-workers for dinner – my first meal out of the week! I leave you with one interesting thing to read…I saw this article in Bon Appetit about the free cafeteria and food that Google offers their employees and how they promote healthy choices. A little sneaky but fascinating!

Does anyone else cook for their pet?

    The omelet looks great! I don’t actually cook for my dog, but I feed him lots of raw fruits and vegetables. He gets green beans with every meal and then he usually gets some of whatever fruits and vegetables that I’m having. He’ll eat pretty much anything, but especially likes the crunchy food like apples, broccoli stalks, carrots, celery, etc. I’m sure he’d love it if I’d start cooking him some eggs though!

    any tips for portable breakfasts? I’ve been working out before work and don’t have time to come home. I love overnight oats, but any others you can recommend? (smoothies and fresh eggs don’t transport very well)

    Almost everynight I supplement my Golden’s dinner meal with some type of free range eggs from my spoiled rotten chickens (scrambed, fried, or half of a cheese omelet).

    Your omelet looks delicious!! I read that article in Bon Appetite this month. Sounds like an incredible place to work! I love that they are promoting healthy eating. The closet thing to my office is McDonalds… so I that leaves me bringing my lunch every day…

    I just got to tour the Google office in New York for a Women in Computer Science program I’m in, and it was AMAZING! I wanted to live there! Not only were their cafes awesome (and free) but they had “micro kitchens” with (free) snacks every 150 feet of the building. Stuff like coconut water, aloe vera juice, fage yogurt… and basically anything you could want. They actually have “unhealthy” stuff too, but they keep it out of sight (in opaque containers) or below eye level so you’re less likely to choose it randomly if you’re hungry.

    Yesterday a post for me (great cookies!) and today a post for my dog, Arthur. Arthur is a white miniature Schnauzer who has terrible allergies. Like you, I hate taking him to the vet just to be prescribed more antibiotics. I would like to know the brand of food that you use for Sullie to see if it would work for Arthur. Thanks so much.

    Your meals always look so delicious! I love tempeh but I have yet to prepare it. Would you mind sharing how you prepare it (or do you have a post already dedicated to this that I’ve somehow missed?)

    Thanks so much!

    I totally cook for Kala, but not all the time! When she stays with my Mom when I go away, on the weekends, she will make all 3 goldens either pancakes or eggs, bacon, and 1/2 an english muffin for Sunday brunch. HA! They are spoiled rotten over there. But her excuse is: “well if u have to eat the same dry food every day…” They deserve it. 😉

    Oh yeah. My dog Ninja gets all sorts of things: eggs, cooked spinach, carrots, hummus… She runs with me and I have a hella time trying to keep weight on her (oh, to have that problem!!) so I never feel bad about giving her extras.

    Oh my gosh, I just have to say that I watched the “oink oink” video of Sullie and that is THE cutest thing I have ever seen!!!!! 🙂

    Aw I totally cook for my cat – he’s sensitive to grain, so in addition to his grain-free dry food, I buy bulk chicken from Costco for him… I toss the baked chicken with spirulina powder, flax oil & a little sea salt, shred & freeze into weekly portions. It ends up being less expensive than canned cat food & saves on vet bills in the long run. 😀

    We trained one of our cats to shake for eggs! Whenever we eat eggs (re: OFTEN), especially fried eggs, she sits right next to you and waits for her cue. Boyfriend holds a piece out and says “shake?” and out comes her paw. It’s adorable but kind of turned her into a little (pudgy) beggar. People are generally pretty impressed by it though, haha.
