These sausage cheddar breakfast muffins are perfect for grabbing a quick breakfast to go.
Let’s talk about fat.
Imagine that in my Salt n Pepa circa 1990 voice. No sex though, just fat.
I get super irritated when I see people buying low-fat everything. Like S-U-P-E-R irritated. Sometimes it gets to the point in the grocery story where I want to ask them why they think that’s healthier for them and literally have to bite my tongue in an effort to remain silent.
Two weeks ago I started tracking my calories again and eating high fat, moderate protein and low carb. I’ve done this before and I know it works well for me when I want to drop a few pounds that have crept up. When I say high fat, I’m talking 70% of my macros were fats. F-A-T. Whole milk, whole milk ricotta, cream cheese, olive oil, coconut oil, coconut butter, bacon grease, cheese, sausage…just a few of the things I’ve been piling on my plate lately to get my fat ratio where I want it for the day.
And guess what?
I’ve lost 6 pounds.
So please low-fat fiends, put that crap back on the shelf and grab the real stuff. Stop fearing fat!
Breakfast is always the hardest meal for me when I’m trying to keep things in line in the carb department. It’s also my favorite meal of the day, but there’s only so many mornings of eggs + bacon or paleo pancakes/waffles I can eat without wanting some variety.
These sausage cheddar breakfast muffins are the perfect solution to breakfast boredom and high (good) fat/low carb needs.
They’re packed with Jones pork sausage, which I love having on hand for a quick and easy addition to meals, cheddar cheese and made with almond and cashew meal. Lots of good fats, a decent amount of protein, great for taking breakfast to go or adding to your morning plate with some fruit.
