What’s for breakfast?

Machacado con huevo

Machacado con Huevo is a fantastic way to enjoy your leftover skirt steak (fajitas) or other grilled beef. The trick to this is to cut the meat against the grain. Use small pieces so the meat is well integrated with your eggs. This is a great high protein, low-carb breakfast....

Cauliflower Grits

You can have your grits on a low carb day! This is surprisingly delicious breakfast porridge. It offers the creamy goodness of a bowl of grits. I like to buy riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s because it’s a real time saver and theirs in a nice consistency. They sell it...

¡Buenos Dias! Fajita Tacos for Sunday Breakfast

Someone asked me today about what I eat for breakfast, so this week I will share my breakfasts with you. Based on my regimen designed to loose fat and gain muscle, I eat five meals every day. My breakfast, in addition to three other meals contain 30 grams of protein...
