Crescent Bacon & Egg Breakfast Bites

Image
I found a bunch of recipes for crescent rolls, this one caught my eye because who doesn't like bacon and egg??

- 2 large eggs
- 3 thick cut bacon
- 1 crescent roll package
- pepper to taste
- shredded cheddar cheese
- splash of milk

Preheat oven to 350.
Cook your bacon until slightly crispy, lay them on a paper towel to drain the fat. Break the bacon into bite size pieces.  Whisk your eggs, add a splash of milk, and add some pepper (you can also add some chopped chives).  Scramble your eggs over low heat and then set aside.  Unroll your crescent rolls and separate them into 8 triangles.  Add some bacon, top it with a little bit of the egg, add some cheese, and then top it with more bacon.  Roll it up to form a mini croissant.  Repeat the process and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake them for 20 minutes.

You can also replace the bacon for sausages!  There are endless possibilities.  :)

BANANA PEAR YOGURT SMOOTHIE RECIPE
OMG. I'm totally obsessed with this smoothie.  I ran out of greens and berries, so I had to put whatever I had left into a smoothie.  You can even add some PB or almond butter to make this a delicious dessert to curb your sweet tooth cravings. 
- 1 frozen banana  - 1 ripe pear (cut into chunks)  - 6 ice cubes - 1/2 c of nonfat Greek yogurt - splash of almond milk - 1 T flaxseed
You can also add a 1/2 - 1 scoop of vanilla whey.  For a post workout smoothie! 

Perfect Easy Oatmeal

What you'll need:
- 1/4 c of Oatmeal ( I recommend Coach's Oats from Costco)
- 3/4 c of filtered water

- handful of blueberries

- 1 T flaxseed

Add the oatmeal and water into a microwave safe bowl and stir.  Pop it in the microwave for 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, wash and slice the strawberries.  Rinse the blueberries.
Stir your oats and if it's still watery, let it sit for one minute.  Add the flaxseed and berries.  Drizzle agave!
