Breakfast Cornmeal Squares with Spinach & Bacon

For years we have been hearing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…Guess what; I think that is true. Breakfast gets your mind and body ready for the day ahead. For most people, eating breakfast is doing exactly what it says: breaking an 8-12 hour fast. Yes, you have been asleep for a good bit of that, but your body is still going about its processes, so you should eat something within an hour of waking. For me that is usually a protein shake or a piece of toast with nut butter before the gym and then a more substantial breakfast after. I am always on the look out for new and interesting breakfasts, bonus points if I make it ahead of time and it makes multiple servings. This recipe checks all of those boxes for me, plus you could easily make it vegetarian by leaving out the bacon and adding some mushrooms. You could also swap out the spinach for whatever greens are in season (adjusting cooking time for heartier winter greens,) so you can really make it your own.

Butternut with Bacon, Tomatillo, and Chipotle

I’m a Rick Bayless fan; I love that he seems so genuine, I love that he loves to cook and eat, I love that he balances his life with a daily yoga practice (he is pretty impressive,) mostly I love when he takes foods that we are used to and adds Mexican ingredients to create new and exciting flavors. I made this recipe a couple of times last year, once as written, but then once with green tomatoes subbed in for the tomatillos. Both were excellent, but if you want to throw a little southern spin on it, then I would use the green tomatoes. This would be great for an every day meal, but I also think it would work wonderfully for Thanksgiving.
