Eat Me

You know those nights (or days) when you're just craving something sweet... something almost like a bread pudding? Remember how many times you've looked at the nutritional info for things and thought "damn!" and instead denied yourself what it was you wanted? Wouldn't it be awesome if you could have your "cake" (or bread pudding) and eat it too... without regrets?

You can! I am on the cusp of zombie vag week (*dear men reading this- seriously, get over it. This shit happens monthly- learn it) and my craving for something bread-y and sweet is rather overwhelming.. luckily I know exactly how to fix that, and fill me up, AND still stick to following Paleo (yes, I am still following Paleo)... so here's what you should try... 'cause this shit is good!

  • grab a bowl that is microwaveable
  • take two eggs (preferably local & organic)
  • crack them into the bowl, the add a couple shakes of organic cinnamon 
  •  add like 2 packets of Splenda® or Truvia® (preferably Truvia® for health reasons)
  • put in the microwave for like 2 minutes

  • pull out of microwave, and dribble like 2 to 4 tblsp of Almond milk on it

you can mush up a banana first (helps to do it first) then add the other stuff
OR.. maybe some diced up apple....

I like to sprinkle some cold fresh blueberries on top, in fact I think that is my favorite.

You can totally leave out the fruit.. but try to still use the berries they rule! It's so ridiculously low carb/low sugar/low everything that you kinda want to laugh at how yummy it actually is. Not kidding. The whipped eggs and cinnamon totally poof up into a bread-y/soufflé like consistency. It's weird and awesome all at once. You can tweak this however you like it... but for some sugar/sweetner packets, two eggs, & cinnamon... it's a helluva quick fix. I just add the almond milk (since I don't use regular milk anymore) so it's more bread pudding-ish. I also know that if I stir the pants off it once it's cooked, then add the almond milk & berries it kinda like porridge.

Ok, that's all. I hope someone was able to use this (or even some of this) to make something yummy. I hate it when every recipe out there makes a person feel like they must have gourmet everything, and like need to go freakin' harvest shit under a full moon or a soufflé will fall flat or somethin'. I like fast, easy, & inexpensive, just as much as I like things to be healthy and good for me.

If you're one of those people that needs to know the nutritional value of everything, it breaks down like this:

2 eggs: 140 calories, 1.5g fat, 1g carbs, 6g protein
tsp (approx) cinnamon: 6 calories, 0 fat, 2 carbs, 0 protein

the fruit:
1 small banana (like about 6" long): 89 calories, .33g fat, 23 carbs, 1.1g protein
1/2 cup chopped red apple: 33 calories, .11 fat, 8.6 carbs, .16 protein

1/4 cup blueberries: 21 calories, .01g fat, 5.3 carbs, .27 protein

Almond milk
4 tblsp Almond Milk: 15 calories, 0 fat, 1g carb, 0 protein




  1. OMG GOOFY. I knew there was a reason we're friends. Bread pudding is hands down my favorite dessert ever.

  2. The cinnamon is from Saigon? Very exotic ingredients, my dear! ;)

  3. Cake Betch- I'll just add it to the list of many reasons

    Bea- well... more like from "google images" really, I just wanted a picture of organic cinnamon ;p

    I really hope someone else tries this and tells me if they liked it. I am often convinced that my palate is so strange that I always wonder if I'm the only one that likes something.

  4. I love when my wife gets bad cravings, because then I get to eat crap too.

    Man, when we eventually get her pregnant, I'm going to gain a million pounds. That'll be great.

  5. Where did my really funny comment go?

    Gang I hate it when that happens!

    You had me at Eat Me! What a great title!!! You are one Mess girl! Zombie Vag---LMAO!

    In a good way!!! Please don't hurt me! (John is jotting down date!)

    Hugs Big Time,
