Veggie Scramble with Uncured Bacon and Green Smoothie

Breakfast for dinner. I love it!! This meal is actually great any time of the day. It has loads of vegetables, protein, good fat and fruits. The smoothie is an example of the smoothie we have everyday for breakfast. For breakfast we usually have 2-3 eggs and a green smoothie. That combo has all the ingredients to keep you feeling full until lunch, nourish your cells and kickstart your metabolism: good fats, protein and vegetables. Enjoy!

Serves: 2

4 uncured bacon slices
½ large red bell pepper, diced
1 cup brocolli florets, small chopped
1 ½ cup kale, finely chopped
6 eggs, whisked
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp black pepper

Heat cast iron skillet over medium low heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp, turning once. Remove and set aside to drain on a paper towel covered plate. Pour all grease except about 1 tsp into a bowl and set aside. (Throw grease away later in trash once cooled)
In skillet, add pepper and broccoli. Cook 5 minutes. Add kale. Cook 3 minutes until wilted. Add eggs, salt and pepper. Cook until scrambled to desired doneness.

Serves: 2

1 cup broccoli florets
½ medium cucumber, large diced
½ large avocado
2- 3 cups kale with stems
1 mango, large diced
1 small apple, quartered
1 cups frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries and black berries)
2 cups water

Place all ingredients in a blender in the order listed. Blend! Enjoy!

Just a side note: we have vitamix blender and I do not know what we did before we got it. It is so easy to be healthy with this blender.
