OMGOODNESS YOU GUYYYYYSSSS!!!!!!!! :D
I am SO EXCITED THESE WERE AMAZIIINNNNGGG!!!!
I am still floating on a cloud of awesome food.
This is what I LOVE about this “way of eating.” You can actually EAT, what you want, when you want it, and not feel guilty about it!
Day 4 for me has been kicked off with a bang. Haha.
Actually, I feel pretty good. I heard most people get headaches and feels naseous the first week, because of all the “detoxing” your body needs to do! :/ (Let me tell you, I have a LOT of it! Chocolate, chips, bread, pasta, was my daily menu….) I had a bit of a headache last night and this morning, but I’m all good now! Ok. So, I WILL specify if I ever use anyone else’s recipes, but all of these so far are all my own thinking, as well as these. I use paleo blogs on instagram as inspiration. SO, this morning I learned my mother wants me to come spend a couple nights at her house this weekend. My face was just pure horror. I love my mom, but when I see her we usually don’t eat very good. SO obviously, with this knowledge, I immediatley felt like binging… AND my favorite thing to binge on is Eggs Benedict from some random resturaunt. I usually take the yolk out (ew, who likes cheap yolk?) I seriously HATE yolk. BUT I looked through my cupboard, and I found a yam, some nitrate free ham, and lot’s of eggs. And seriously guys, free range organic eggs are the BEST. The yolk is just rich and beautiful. So good. Haha. Anyways, to the recipe! :)
You will need:
3-4 eggs (2 for 1 yam, 3-4 for two)
Nitrate free deli meat (Or bacon, I’m jelly of people with bacon. :( But ham works, and it’s YUMMY! Heck, do Bacon AND Ham. I don’t think turkey would work in this. Some sort of pork only.)
Avacado (Optional, I didn’t have any :/)
Olive oil/coconut oil
Put a pan on medium/high heat. Add enough oil to completely cover the bottom of the pan. While that is heating up, peel and grate the yams into a bowl. Once your yams are peeled and grated, grate 1-3 garlic cloves into the bowl. Crack an egg into the bowl and stir. Put another one in if it’s too thick. It needs to have the texture of pancake batter. Add green onions/pepper/onion/ whatever spices/flavours you want! Test the oil by dropping a bit of water in the pan, if it bubbles and fizzes right away, then take a spoon, and spoon the mixture into the pan, make the yams about the size of a small/medium sized pancake. While those are cooking, get a small pot and fill it with water, turn it up to high heat, and wait for it to boil. Once the yams have begun browning on the sides, flip them. When the pot of water is boiling, take a whisk and quickly whisk the water in a circular motion, quickly crack an egg into the swirling water. When the yams are browned, put them on a paper towel, remove excess oil, then place on plate. Top with ham/bacon, go back to the egg and check if it is white. If it is quite a solid white colour, use a slotted spoon to carefully remove from pot and place on top of potato and ham. Pierce the middle of the egg, the yolk will spill out and add a nice creamy flavour. Sprinkle pepper over the top. ENJOY
