A healthy and happy way to start your morning! Whole30 breakfast plate with baby greens, bacon, eggs, and fresh raspberry dressing. Paleo, gluten free, and spring fresh!
glorious whole30 breakfast
Ooooh la la. Look at that little eggy 🙂 So cute! This rad plate of whole30 goodness is like vegetarian crazed mama (baby greens) meets eggs and bacon brunch (eggs and bacon, duh😉), meets pockets full of sunshine (eggies!), meets your bubbly, always joyful second cousin- a.k.a rrrraspberries! Now if that doesn’t get you excited about eating breakfast, I don’t know what will.
You wouldn’t believe the behind the scenes of this photo shoot. Pure chaos, my friends. Every counter was occupied by dishes, ingredients, bowls of stuff… plates and cups full of other stuff. On top of the table my tripod was trying to get a breath, as it was surrounded by a gazillion props and chords going to my lighting unit; not to mention the reflector and kitchen chairs strewn here and there.
I know one day I will look back and laugh at these times and wish them back. But right now, all I want is a gorgeous studio like this dream. *Note to self: Kaylie, look back at this post in five years and see how far you have come.
Some of you may know that I had to move back home last spring, because of my heath. All my family peeps are great supporters! They have truly taught me so much and I am grateful for this time. It won’t be forever (probably not even another year, because I have started healing!!!), so I am soaking it all up while I can.
All that to say, it is a huge blessing… and a challenge at times😉… read on.
The good and the bad.
My family’s home is a small log cabin in the woods. My sister and I share a bedroom (we love it most of the time!). But our kitchen is a 12′ square with retro cabinetry from the 80’s and linoleum counters and flooring.
All that to say… I leave that part out of the pictures for a reason.
So, today as I set up the the photoshoot, there were at least four other people in the kitchen cooking their breakfast. Every counter looked like a tsunami had recently visited. And just a side note: when the heat is turned up and things are in the oven making the small kitchen even hotter- I turn into a hot mess and get a little expressive!
The only thing that keeps me sane is knowing that I am not alone in this.
It has been revealed to me that all across the blogging world there are women in the p.j’s and yoga pants, standing on their tables, rushing around like a crazy women with unbrushed teeth and wild hair, destroying their kitchens… all for one photoshoot.
Okay, moving on. I think I have debriefed this photoshoot long enough.
Fooooods. You’re so beautiful! I have been obsessed with fresh ingredients all week (and life😜). So, to satisfy this craving, I have prepared a tasty little thing I like to call: whole30 breakfast plate with bacon, the best eggs ever, baby kale (so dang pretty!), arugula, fresh raspberries, served with homemade raspberry dressing and avocado.
And that fresh mint: zzzzesty! Gimme. I want all the fresh mint and raspberries.
I should probably think of another name.
