Do I eat breakfast every day? Nope!

Some days I won’t have any “real food” and instead I’ll opt for a bulletproof coffee and will put some of our keto sweetened condensed milk (if you haven’t made this yet you’re really missing out!) in it.

Other days I may make a bulletproof matcha latte or in the Fall I love to make this low carb sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe.

Other days I may fast through breakfast and won’t have anything to eat or drink besides water until about 11a or 12pm. If you’ve never heard the word Intermittent fasting before, or read about the health benefits of fasting, you can learn more in this beginner’s guide to fasting post I wrote.

The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr Jason Fung is a great book, if you’re interested in learning even more about fasting!

Some mornings when I’m feeling super ambitious I’ll either fry up or bake some bacon. Seriously though, if you haven’t baked bacon in the oven yet your are missing out! It’s honestly been life changing!

I was super skeptically when my BFF Erica told me that her favorite way to eat bacon was by baking it. Personally I had been frying my bacon and putting Montreal seasoning and balsamic vinegar on top. This I thought was the bomb dot com. BUT I WAS WRONG!

When you bake bacon in the oven it gets super crystal-like. It’s the only way I can think to describe it. The fat drips down into the pan (which I save in mason jars) and then you’re left with heaven (the bacon) on top of the rack. I’ll have to remember to take a picture next time so you can see what I’m talking about. Normally the bacon is gone so quick I don’t even have time to take a picture LOL.

With my bacon, I normally pair it with some fried chicken or duck eggs (I fry them in the bacon fat that I’ve previously saved) and some avocado. Also, if I had previously steamed up some brussel sprouts, I will reheat them in a cast iron skillet with the bacon fat.
