Bacon and Apple Fry

This has been my latest addiction for breakfast since I need to lay off the grains. It makes my house smell like a mixture between Christmas and Mamas potpourri 🙂 It also doesn’t hurt that this meal really doesn’t require much thinkin’ so early in the morning….and of course it is allergy free:)

Bacon and Apple Fry
 Bacon {chopped... Or not} 2-4 pieces
 2 Organic Apples
 Stevia or maple syrup*

…sounds simple right?!

Start bacon in large frying pan over med heat. While bacon is starting to cook- rinse, core, and slice two apples. {I have one of those doohickeys you can use to do it all at once! They don’t cost much at the store}
After your apples are ready, your bacon should be sizzling, toss them in! Reduce heat to med low. Stir with a wooden spoon to ensure your bacon doesn’t crisp. Add a little cinnamon and continue stirring until desired doneness:) Once removed from heat add either your stevia or maple syrup to sweeten! Enjoy!

This would also be great with some organic peaches thrown in! I can’t wait to scoop some up when I start seeing them!
Also- another tip- save your pan leftovers! This sweet oil would be great over a bacon salad later on!!!


Pizza Meet Spaghetti… Squash!

OK. No, we aren’t having pizza… But as I devoured this dish I couldn’t help but to think of a meat lovers pizza and how similar the taste!


As you read in this blog I have been obsessed with finding new ways to fancy squash up a bit. Well, last night in the midst of unpacking from our recent move and realizing I need to feed the fam. I concocted a quick and easy dish with tons of protein whilst keeping it allergy free! { Can you say SuperMom? } 😉

Please forgive me, but since I wasn’t planning on blogging this dish I didn’t have my measuring spoons out. I will do my best to describe how much of each spice I used;)

Pizza Meat Spaghetti Squash

1 lb natural lean beef
2 pieces nitrate, nitrite free bacon ~~
Cooked, shredded, spaghetti squash
2 small cans or one regular can of natural tomato sauce
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Sea salt & pepper

My squash was already cooked and set aside. Since that step was finished it made this recipe that much easier! So I browned my beef on the stove. When it was close to being done I drained the beef and put back on the heat. Then I added my bacon chopped into inch pieces. Stir around. When bacon was almost done cooking (not crunchy) I added my sauce. Stir. Sprinkle/shake over pan {twice} with onion powder. Same with garlic powder. Add a pinch of oregano and a pinch of basil. Let this simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat. Taste test and be sure you don’t want to add any more of your spices as everyone’s taste buds like different things (mine LOVE garlic). Add your sea salt and pepper to taste as well. Then scoop a heaping amount of this onto some warmed spaghetti squash! Enjoy:)

I’m sure this would be delish with some real onion and garlic in place of the spices and next time I will try it {when unpacking is done}, but if you like quick and yummy this is your dish! Thanks again for following and I appreciate any feedback!
