My favorite porn is #yolkporn.
I can only imagine the search terms I’m going to get from this…
When I saw this video on Lifehack yesterday I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. It’s (allegedly) a fool-proof way to cook a sunny side up egg.
In case you need the definition a perfect sunny side up egg should have the whites just cooked through, but the bright yellow yolky deliciousness should remain runny. Like a silky syrup for your toast or oats or salad or jicama nachos… anything!
Warning: this video will make you crave butter. And egg, obv.
The guy’s name is Mr. Breakfast. He must be an expert.
In other news, I failed and didn’t have a runny egg on WIAW. I did win at food prep though! After a few weeks of being less than planned, I was happy to have my meals ready for me today!
Read on for my prepared food, and then check out Jenn’s blog. I don’t know if she’s doing the link up though… because she had her

I was feeling like something decadent for breakfast in honor of the short work week. That only means one thing: french toast. My protein-filled toast tasted like a treat with the peanut flour sauce and strawberries.
Note: I order peanut flour from iHerb - use discount code USO924 for $5-10 off your order.
PB & J Topped French Toast
- 1/4 C egg whites
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 4-5 drops liquid Stevia
- 1 large slice of bread (I used p28 High Protein)
- 1 T peanut flour
- 1 tsp sugar-free syrup
- 1/8 tsp butter extract
- Almond milk (adjust to desired consistency)
- Strawberries and granola (to top)
Beat together first 5 ingredients in a shallow bowl. Soak bread slice in the mix, flipping once to coat.
Cook in greased pan over med-high heat until browned.
Meanwhile, mix together peanut flour, syrup, butter extract, and almond milk. I used 2 T almond milk; add it slowly and adjust to your desired consistency.
Plate toast and top with syrup, berries, and granola.
Things got busy and I missed my mid-morning snack so I had an early-ish lunch. I packed up the chicken, tabbouleh, and celery sticks from my food prep, and added to that some hummus and a piece of Ezekial bread.
No need to eat boring food just because you’re sitting in an office. This snack was incredible: salmon sashimi, lavar, edamame, and kabocha.
Totally normal work eats, no?
My schedule was thrown off and I had to busy out an emergency bar to power through my workout before dinner.
Note: I don’t actually like these. It was a freebie.
I was going to eat the snapper from my food prep… but after I workout all I want is a smoothie bowl. Eating solid food after a workout just doesn’t appeal to me.
My new staple is this Chocolate Beet variety. Last night I wolfed it down with oats, fig, and a bar I made as part of meal prep (side note: I want to make some adjustments before I share – sorry!). Extra spinach.
Smoothie bowls are like dessert to me, but that didn’t stop me from having a second dessert. The post-Labor Day fall mood struck and I made a Sweet Potato Pie Protein Bowl as my midnight snack. I’ve been adding coconut flour to everything lately – it makes everything deliciously cake-y.
With all the toppings I had to take a bite shot for you to even see the pie!
Pumpkin Pie Protein Bowl
- 1/2 C sweet potato, mashed
- 1/2 C no-salt cottage cheese
- 1 T coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- Liquid Stevia, to taste
- Almond milk (adjust to desired thickness)
- Optional toppings: popcorn, figs, cacao nibs, breakfast bar crumbles
Mix it all together and devour!
Note: you could blend it to smooth… I was too impatient.
How awesome that it’s already Wednesday?!
Do you have a hard time eating solids after a workout?
Do you ever eat something you don’t love just because it’s free? I don’t know why I’m so compelled…
