Just Saute your greens in coconut oil and onion. This takes seconds. You still want some crunch to them so don't cook for too long. Scramble some organic eggs with salt and pepper. Toss with the greens! Yum!!

Collard Greens that is! This is a wonderful dish I put together this morning just using fresh ingredients I had in the house. It was Delicious!! I felt like it was easy too. Filled my belly up for a good long time. Made it through Zumba class!

A bunch of fresh Collard Greens or greens of choice cleaned and chopped roughly. You can buy these in a large bag already cleaned.
One large onion chopped.
1/2 pound of bacon cooked.
salt and pepper to taste
Poached eggs....your desired amount
Melt coconut oil in large pot.
Add Bacon that you have crunched up into bite size pieces.
Add onion and saute.
Add greens, salt and pepper.
Saute until still slightly crunchy.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Poach eggs to your favorite consistency.
I like them a little runny.
Add a garnish of fresh tomatoes!
I made breakfast bowls with this for the week ahead. Yum!!

Santa is Coming to Our House!
After the LONG journey to the nice list, the time has finally come. Santa will be here tonight. George will be leaving and going back home. We will really miss the little guy. Santa has been busy and will be at our house in the wee hours of the morning. It is very important not to peek too soon. Whew, glad he warned us. I'm sure it would have been an early morning at the Wade house!
