Shamrock Shake Smoothie – Shamrock Shake Healthified.

It’s that time of year again when the Shamrock Shake is being downed all over the country. I have to confess, I’ve never tried one. Just the bright, unnatural green color of the shake turns me off big time. And if the color isn’t enough to make you say hmmmm – the ingredient list might convince you to try something healthier – like our version of Shamrock Shake Smoothies made only with fresh, chemical-free ingredients.

Bacon Wrapped Egg, Spinach & Cheese “Muffins”

Bacon wrapped egg, spinach, & cheese muffins2

I have a confession to make. I do not get up early to make my husband breakfast. And since I don’t buy cereal and often don’t have easy things to eat in the morning, that often leaves my husband without breakfast. I’m a terrible wife, yes?

In an effort to do better by him, I am really trying hard to have easy, wholesome meals in the freezer ready for him to eat (as long as he can heat them up on his own.) :D

A couple years ago I shared a recipe for Eggy Breakfast Muffins – and it is a popular recipe on SimplifyLiveLove. However, I am trying to reduce the amount of flour we eat, and so I came up with another “muffin” – one without flour. I’ve seen these bacon wrapped muffins on several blogs (I think I first got this idea from Sarah at Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity years ago), and I’m sure other bloggers have also made similar recipes. So, I can’t take full credit for the idea, but this is my own take.

Make sure you check the prices as they change quickly on Amazon. While everything was free when I posted, it’s highly likely that they will change!
