The key to the 21 Day Fix is meal preparations. I decided I’m only willing to eat food that have been in containers for three days at a time, so here is what my three days looks like!
Shakeology: Shakeology, 1/2 banana, flax seeds, coffee
Mid-morning snack: 1 egg cup with tortilla
Lunch: Chicken, Veggie Mix
Mid-Afternoon snack: 2nd Egg cup/whole wheat tortilla, Fruit
Dinner: Pork tenderloin, Lettuce w/ Balsamic Vinegar, Veggie Mix

What’s your favorite?
I started the 21 Day Fix this week. It’s going to be so easy to stay on track with my diet if I am able to prepare my meals for the week each Sunday. This should eliminate me making those bad food choices when I get hungry. No more binge eating for me!! Meal prepping can be a pain, though, so it’s nice to be able to eliminate the preparation for one meal a day by substituting Shakeology. I drink the Shakeology for breakfast since I’m not always in the mood to eat when I get up! I’m still debating over which one is my favorite. What’s yours?
If you haven’t tried Shakeology yet, you can order it here today!!
Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
I love getting to cook Sunday breakfasts for my family, but I want to find a way to mix it up a little. I ordered a waffle maker from Amazon.com, but it didn’t show up in time for me to make waffles. I looked online for another breakfast casserole and I found one that was very similar to the last one I made, but just different enough to make it something new. Luckily, I have 3 weeks until the next time I have to cook for everyone. I’m pretty sure my waffle maker will be here by then!!
1 cup of cheese (or more if you like a lot of cheese like I do)
1 tube of sausage
1 tube of crescent rolls
Put Pam on a casserole dish and then roll out the crescent roll on to the dish.
Mix eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
Put cooked sausage on the crescent roll.
Pour the egg/cheese mix over the sausage
Bake on 350 for 45 minutes or until cooked through.
Now that I’m back in Dallas, I have to take my turn making breakfast for everyone on Sundays. I am getting much better at cooking and almost had my breakfast timed out perfectly. Had it not been for my breakfast casserole taking longer than it was supposed to, I would have had breakfast on the table for everyone right when they got here. It ended up taking a lot longer than the recipe said it would. It might be because I doubled the recipe I found at The Real Housewife blog. It really didn’t matter though. It all tasted great!!
- 1 Pound Sausage
- 8 Eggs
- 2 Cups Bisquick
- 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 4 Cups Milk
Blend the eggs, milk, and bisquick
Put the sausage on the bottom of the casserole dish
Cover with cheese (sorry about the blurry picture)
Dump the egg mix on to the sausage and eggs
Put in the oven at 350 for about 45 minutes. Stick a fork in it to make sure that it is cooked all the way through.
One of the gifts from the cookie exchange was the movie Elf with a bottle of syrup. The movie got stolen from me, but I got stuck with the syrup. Since I had syrup, I had to make some waffles. I really liked the idea of making sausage waffles, so I thought I would give it a try and make the people at work try it with me. I think everyone that tried this is now a fan of sausage waffles!
Waffle mix…I used bisquick and their recipe
Put Sausage on the waffle iron and then add the waffle mix on top. Cook until brown.
Add butter and syrup and eat!
Pigs in a Blanket
I know that everyone knows how to make pigs in a blanket, but just in case you don’t, you need to! These tiny kolaches have to be the best weekend breakfast food ever. They are also so easy to make that I highly recommend them!!
Little smokey sausage (I got the ones that had cheese in them)
Can of biscuits
Pop the can of biscuits and cut the biscuits in half. Wrap a half biscuit around each smokey. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes. That’s it!! Eat them up!! You can even put them in a baggie, put them in the fridge, and eat the left overs throughout the week!
Every once in a while, if we are in a hurry, we will go to the Taco Shack on Metric for breakfast. They make a pretty decent breakfast taco. I don’t really care for their hot sauce but that’s not a big deal for me anyway. Today I was annoyed though, because I was in the mood for some chips and queso for breakfast. They said they don’t serve that at breakfast time. So I asked for guacamole and chips since it was on the breakfast menu and the guy said they don’t do any chips for breakfast. What kind of Mexican food restaurant doesn’t have chips for breakfast!? I’m sure we will go back, but I won’t be getting chips then either.
