A Savory and Sweet Breakfast

Hello, there  I have been neglectful.  Honestly, it’s just because I’ve been hungry and would rather just eat my food than blog about it.  Sorry?

I’ve had these last 3 pieces of my favorite fake bacon, appropriately called Fakin’ Bacon.  It’s a tempeh kind, and it makes me very happy because it’s smokey and sweet.  You won’t get that crispiness that murderbacon has, but it’s really quite good.  I kept wanting to eat it with various things, but I decided that I’d save it to make myself a nice breakfast.  And, to celebrate the fact that I actually got out of bed on time today, I decided that this day was the day to make myself that nice breakfast (as opposed to my protein smoothie).


Ingredients: fake bacon, broccoli, sweet potato, avocado, jalapeno, bell pepper, and tomatoes.

Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 1 small-small medium sweet potato
  • 3oz (85g) brocolli
  • 1 serving of your choice of fake bacon (for me, this is 3 slices)
  • 1 cup of sliced/diced tomatoes (I always prefer little tomatoes)
  • 1/2 (or more, or less) of a jalapeno
  • 1 small or 1/2 regular bell pepper of choice
  • 1/4 (or more, or less) avocado


  1. Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 450 degrees.  I prefer the toaster oven because it’s more localized heat and doesn’t take as long, but if you don’t have one, your regular oven will do.
  2. Cut the sweet potato into small cubes and put them on your baking sheet.
  3. Make sure your broccoli is in small, bite-sized pieces and place them on your baking sheet as well.
  4. If your fake bacon is the kind that is best cooked baked, add it on there, too.  If not, heat it up in whatever method works best for you.IMG_2354
  5. Bake your potato, broccoli, and possibly bacon in the oven until the broccoli is crisp and the potato is soft, about 20  minutes.
  6. While that’s happening, cut up your tomato, pepper, avocado, jalapeno, and make yourself a little guacamole.IMG_2355
  7. When your baking items are done getting awesome, cut up your bacon.  Add everything to a bowl, and chow down.  Yum.

Just so you know, this breakfast had a whopping 14 grams of protein.  Not a bad way to start the day!
