This blog is a place to share my passion for cooking and inspire people to cook more from scratch. With six people in the family, cooking is something that is always on my mind. I want to share some of my favorite foods and recipes and share more about traditional diets (like the kind of food our great, great, great grandmothers would have made). Right now I am fascinated with fermented vegetables, coconuts, seafood with a cerviche twist and organ meats... although maybe not all in the same meal!

A Bounty-full Breakfast

First, I should say hello again as I've taken a bit of a summer break for the past few weeks.  I think it was the summer trips and having my kids underfoot all summer long that I almost seemed to have lost my way to the computer!  Or maybe it is that they have been making movies and on the computer lots instead.  Whatever the case, at least I have lots more Vitamin D after spending so much time outdoors!  

Today I seem ready to share another summer impromptu meal.  I have a ton swirling in my head, I just have to get to the computer to record them.  Thanks to my great CSA box from Farmer Jon at Infinity Farm, I have no shortage of fabulous summer veggies to work with!

As I looked at what to eat for breakfast this morning, I saw all my veggies from yesterday's farm pickup.  I thought why not start the day with some of these extra vegetables so I started dicing away.  There was fresh garlic, zucchini, peppers, basil, tomatoes and I also added some roasted beets.  Once I sautee'd all those veggies in coconut ghee, I added two pasture raised eggs to make a simple veggie scrambled eggs dish.

I finished the dish off with some goat cheese and ate a very satisfying and energy-packing morning breakfast!  Simple, fast, tasty and most importantly, great for you!

A girl can dream... perhaps one day my kids will think this is a fab breakfast too and will join me.  Until then, I am thankful that they do eat generally good things for breakfast just not as adventurously as their mom.
