Heck is that yellow stuff!?

Is Kath really eating eggs for breakfast!?

IMG_2383Blog

Yup! Because 1) We’re nearly out of milk and 2) Because Matt made breakfast!

He scrambled up some eggs on toast, to which I added some fig butter, but of course I had to involve a banana + peanut butter [Wild Squirrel Cocoa-Nut] too because my life would not be complete without them.

I’m trying to pack lots into this Saturday and am already off to a late start thanks to my midnight bedtime!

Haha even on the rare occasion I have eggs for breakfast, there has to be some element of sweet in there!

Fig butter + eggs…never would have thought of that!

Looks delicious – and everything is better with peanut butter!

Breakfast never feels finished to me when I just have eggs. I need to add something sweet too!

Embrace the eggs. Try a frittata…sooooooo good! Mangia!

Eggs made a come back for me this week too – I had them scrambled with black truffle goat cheese. It was like a little egg from heaven. :)

Beautiful! I love eggs on toast! And clementines are the best!

That’s my go to toast recipe! Half sweet, half savory…but the egg half HAS to have jam on it!
Happy Saturday!

I rarely have eggs for breakfast either. I’m much more of a sweet over savory person for breakfast! I like your idea – a mix of the two!

Ha! I never eat eggs for Bfast either. Except baked into a muffin.

enjoy your day…I’m enjoying the pics of the banana on it’s end with the nut butter spread on it!

And yes, I noticed you had a late nite posting last nite..midnite-ish and a post of yours hit my reader and I was like, whoa, she’s up past her bedtime :)

Great breakfast.

Would like to know your thoughts on a.m. coffee or tea and what kind specificially for a beginner? Specifically I’m curious whether coffee or tea with breakfast can help stimulate bowels effectively or only hinder them. I’ve heard and read so much positive and negative about both sides.

Reply

16 KathEats December 10, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Hey Jenny,
What kind of flavors do you like? Fruit? Vanilla? Mint? I’d go with a tea that is the most parallel with your flavor profile (for me I hate fruit + herbal teas but love anything vanilla, dessert or mint)

Yes, caffeine can help stimulate bowels and coffee has soluble fiber – I don’t think many people have a hinder effect

17 Jenny December 10, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Is there a specific coffee to buy (I have no coffee maker. Only a kettle).
Would you recommend a tea or coffee in the morning? Pro or con?

I don’t like fruit, ginger, honey or ginger flavored in terms of tea.

You have combined two of my favourite childhood comfort foods…eggs on toast and peanut butter/banana on toast…the fig jam elevates the eggs up a notch into adulthood! Yum!

I like the multi-dimensional-ness of your breakfast! Happy Saturday :)

Hmmm fig butter! I need to get some of that :)

21 Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco December 10, 2011 at 11:12 am

Leave it to you to come up wtih an amazing flavor combo. ;) I have finally figured out my tactic, I need to go to your blog BEFORE I eat breakfast so I don’t end up drooling over one of your meals so much that I have to eat two breakfasts.

22 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats December 10, 2011 at 11:14 am

Haha, gotta mix it up sometimes! I usually only have eggs when eating out!

Weekend eggs are lovely sometimes. :) Enjoy your busy day.

mmmm. I’m having 2 eggs over easy with some breakfast potatoes and some whole wheat pancakes. Saturday morning breakfast splurge. :-)

i LOVE jam on eggs. everyone i tell that too thinks i’m nuts, but the salty/sweet combo is delish.

Hehe I’m not an eggs for breakfast person either…unless they are in french toast form that is!

How funny-I had scrambled eggs for breakfast. I hardly have anything but oatmeal.

Looks amazing as always! Is there a reason you don’t normally eat eggs for breakfast?

I just don’t really care for savory breakfasts – but I do love eggs in general

I too love jam on eggs! Enjoy your Saturday! I hope it’s as beautiful there as it is here in DC.

I love eggs – for any meal! My family got chickens for our backyard so we could have fresh, healthy eggs whenever we want. I love them! One of my favorite breakfast foods is toast with peanut butter and raisins… easily eaten in the car on the way to work!

Looks like a yummy tasting plate of breakfast foods. I hardly ever eat traditional breakfast foods for breakfast, so I’m further removed from them in the morning than you are.

38 Lorin December 10, 2011 at 1:53 pm

What is your viewpoint on eating breakfast even if a person isn’t hungry…Some people say you shouldn’t skip breakfast because it helps start your metabolism..but then others say eat more intuitive and eat when you are hungry. Are there any good sources to look at these point of views, like articles you know of?

Reply

39 KathEats December 10, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I think this article provides a good review of the topic:

I looooooove that article! In the industry I work in (health food/supplements), there are so many people who follow strict rules, diets and patterns, and will claim that they are “the way” (I used to be one of them when I was vegan :P ), but I have been a fan of intuitive eating ever since I finally started paying attention to my body and what it wants, versus things I’ve read in books that I thought I “should” do. If I wake up hungry, I eat- if not, I wait until I’m hungry. I always end up getting enough nutrition by the end of the day, and I’ve never had an extra pound on me since I started doing this.

41 Lorin December 10, 2011 at 7:54 pm

I just read it! It was exactly what I was looking for and included a few other things (like snacking verus 3 square meals a day) that I wanted to know. In the end, I think I need to eat more intuitively rather than seeing a time and thinking time to eat; including boredom eating.

42 Sara December 10, 2011 at 2:00 pm

hey kath,
i was wondering what brand of fig jam you use? i’m partial to bonne mame and also recently discovered TJs makes some. it’s something i really miss from living abroad — hard to find a good one in the US!

Once again, you surprised me… Sweet and savory… Eggs with fig butter… I would have never thought of that combo. Sounds good, though!

Currently lovin’ TJ’s apple butter!!! FYI, “sweet” eggs are always an option- like french toast minus the toast :P

Coffee is one of the top GI irritants for many! (I’m assuming that’s because of it’s high acid content??)
