Epic Brunch!

I really love working out in the morning for a number of reasons:

  • It wakes me up.
  • It gets my body and all its necessary functions going in the morning.
  • It jump-starts my metabolism.
  • It makes me extra hungry.
  • It makes my breakfast sooooo much tastier.
Although my breakfast/brunch today didn't need any help making it tasty, the Billy Blank Tae-Bo workout I did before it made it taste even that much better. I love having a beautiful giant breakfast to start my day. This one is going to keep me satisfied for so long as well because it has plenty of protein with the carbohydrates and even some really great healthy fat! 

I dined on the most amazing sweet potato hash with fresh poached eggs and avocado! This was the first time I've ever made real poached eggs and they were so great! My favorite breakfast food growing up was definitely poached eggs on toast but we used one of those handy microwave poached egg contraptions that really just produces a  microwaved egg. Definitely not poached and ooey gooey runny yolk of a poached egg. We also used to make Velveeta cheese sauce to put on top. Gasp!

This right here is 10 billion times tastier and better for you. Yum Yum Yum.


  1. Mmm, this looks delicious! I've never done a poached egg before either, but it sounds just as easy as any other method. Might have to give it a try! Your Tae-bo sounds like fun. :)

  2. You know me and eggs,,,,that looks wonderful. Would you believe that I served a baked sweet potato to Uncle Kurt while he was here and he'd never had one before? He loved it. I'll have to think about the hash idea. I'm getting lazy again, but that sounds so good. AC
