Tired of The Same Old Late Rising No Breakfast Blues??

Are you overweight and sick of feeling down? Is that cup of coffee getting you through your day?

Many people don’t believe that breakfast is important. I know you have heard that breakfast is one of the best ways to start your day. The truth is that your metabolism will shut down and go into starvation mode when you skip any meal. Why not start your day off with a complex carbo powerhouse of energy.

OATMEAL– Those Quakers have been doing it since the industrial revolution. This post is about ways to spice your oatmeal to make it tasty, fun burn those holiday pounds before they burn you.

Breakfast of Champions
Complex Carbohydrate Factory

Eggs on oatmeal seasoned with a little salt and pepper. Avocado (a half will do) then toast some Brian’s Bread Sourdough to eat with it. This meal will eat the rest of your meals throughout the day. Yes I said it . The fiber content alone will have your colin jumping for joy that you didn’t choose that 99 cent breakfast Jack from the french cafe (Le Box) down the street. It will pack more lasting energy than three triple grande, blended sugar factories from starbucks.

Almonds are also great on top of a bowl of oatmeal. They also will move your body in the right direction to battle those holiday pounds that most people gain. Almonds are a very interesting nut. It takes more energy to break them down than the fat store in each one. Spicy pecans and sunflower seeds are another great alternative.

I hear from other people, not to call anyone out, but they live in L.A. and stay up to the wee hours and sleep right through breakfast. I have told them a few times and I hope they are listening. Wake up early eat breakfast and go back to bed for nap. Day after day you will wake up earlier and bamm your life will change

Gather enough of these great tidbits and yes your life will change as well

Fresh Sourdough Breaded Pork loin with Mozzarella Mashed Potato and Garlic Spinach

This is a simple and easy way for your next dinner to be a Tasty event! Remember to keep it simple. Preparation can be individual, but having a partner is a great way to stay cleaner. I.E. non contamination. If you are an all star cook waiting for your spouse to get home, just get in there and do your best.

What you need??

5– 1 1/2 inch pork loins
6– Slices of Sourdough bread (medium)
1– Roll of Plastic Wrap
1– Cup Mozzarella
6– Medium size potatoes
1– 2 1/2 onces Spinach (washed)
2– Fresh Garlic cloves (whole)
3– Eggs (organic)
1– Cup of Flour
1– 1/2 cup milk
1– 1/2 stick butter
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

A food processor is optimal for making quick bread crumbs, but if you have the time. The oven is a great option. Pre heat 350 degrees for 15 mins. Then cut up your sourdough bread, I use San Luis Sourdough, into 1/2 inch squares and spread them on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and season with Salt to taste. Stir occasionally until browned and crispy. Smash them up. Try not to use metal on metal to do so.

Next cut pork in half long ways and lay down plastic on a cutting board. Then lay down thin pork and another layer of plastic on top. Smash down to break down meat with open palm or mallet. This will make your pork cook quickly. Repeat until finished. Put in fridge after completed.

Peel Potatoes (your preference) Boil in Dutch oven until soft. Add milk, cheese and salt/pepper to taste. Starting the potatoes before cooking the pork is key to timing the meal.

Now Set up Flour, Dipping and Breading Station

Flour is best on plate. Eggs are cracked and beaten in bowl. The breading is also best on plate. Always have back up’s just in case more is needed. TIP The farther something is from reach the easier it is to BURN your meal..

Heat pan to med–high and add olive oil. First is flour. Cover with flour then knock off excess. Dip in egg and cover all sides. Have a layer of breading on plate then lay down pork and sprinkle on breading until covered. One by one fill the pan with breaded pork loins until full. Left brown and seal on both sides then transfer to glass pan. Once a one set of pork loins are cooked clean the pan and start again with more olive oil. This will help you keep the same color throughout the process.

Remember no one likes that one dark piece when everyone else’s look great!!

Again drizzle some olive oil in glass pan and cover with foil. Set oven to 350 and 15–20 mins should get you to the right temperature. Cut through to get this desired temperature.

Last is the Spinach. Super quick and super yummy with the right timing. Olive oil in the saute pan Large and add spinach. Add salt and a little bit of butter. A little more oil might be needed, but don’t drowned it. Throw in Garlic (whole) mid way for just a hint of flavor. Tip Too much garlic too early can make your meal drag and the spiciness of the garlic could takeover

Plate mashed Potato place pork on top then add a little pile of garlic spinach and Yes complete and give your self a pad on the back. Yeah!!!!
