Adult Grits and Eggs: Fancy Breakfast

Meal Time Monday [Autosaved]



My New Quirky Habit

I have this new quirk, and my husband had to point it out to me. I like eating fancy food. From creating blog and Instagram post I now pretty much style all my meals. Healthy food just tastes better when designed in my opinion, and it’s a part of the food experience. Before I became a health nut, the food experience consisted of a greasy bag, lots of napkins and a stain every single time on my shirt. It was usually eaten in the car, in a hurry, on-the-go and the most memorable thing about the experience are the stains it left on my shirt.


Fine Dining Experience

Now that I eat clean food is an experience. It’s not a quick fix, never fully satisfying thing to pass the time away. It’s a production (not my meals or 30 minutes or less but what feels like a production) flavorful, expression of my creativity. I make new recipes regularly, try new vegetables and fruits weekly. Slice, dice, cut and mince and create amazing flavor combinations and aromas. Then I sit down and enjoy a beautiful meal photogenically styled for all of our enjoyment. Well, that does somewhat happen maybe two days a week. All the others I take regular meals and put it on the plate pretty and just my plate because by the time I am finished the Lil Divas are on their seconds. Then, I eat it and enjoy it. It’s portioned just right and beautiful like from a restaurant. Do I waste my dinner time? Yes, but rather than scarfing down a plate and being on my seconds. I am eating my first. Finishing with the family and not sitting there watching them eat their seconds. Ah-ha, you say? Try it! Works for me!


Little touches make the magic

Well on one of my particularly creative breakfast I decided to grab almost every herb in my garden. A box of grits and some eggs and make adult grits. I never had adult grits, but I wanted to do something other than butter or sugar (I have never done this, but my cousins do) and cheese, grits require cheese UNLESS you are lactose intolerant like me, so that leaves me with, boo. Exactly, so I came up with this simple as making a not adult grits recipe to get fancy at the table, and you can just do this for your bowl and let the family have their regular meal while you dine at your gourmet restaurant 😉 😉 Enjoy!
