Holy Guacamole BLT

Holy Guacamole BLT

One of my favorite foods in the whole world is a BLT sandwich. Unfortunately, I do not eat bread anymore so I have really been missing them. This morning I woke up craving it so bad that I actually looked around my kitchen for some bread. Alas, no luck. I got a little creative and came up with this a BLT burrito. This was delicious. I got my Bacon, Lettuce, tomato and was even able to add some leftover Guacamole from the Giants game last night. (GO GIANTS!!) It was filling, satisfied my BLT craving and gave me a new favorite breakfast that isn’t bad for me. Enjoy!

Holy Guacamole BLT     (for 2)

Ingredients: 

  • 5 eggs (I used 2 for me- a thinner burrito, 3 for Brandon- thicker and more hearty for a “Manly” breakfast.)
  • 1 LB. Bacon
  • 2 Vine tomatoes
  • 1 cup of shredded lettuce
  • Fresh Guacamole (See Football Guacamole on previous post)

Process:

  • Cook Bacon in a skillet and set aside for later
  • Grease a skillet well (you can use bacon greased pan if you LOVE bacon flavor) 
  • Put 2-3 eggs in a bowl and a little Salt and pepper for taste. Whisk well until the entire egg is blended.
  • Heat skillet to mid-low heat (I used 2.8 setting)
  • Pour eggs into the skillet and make sure they are spread evenly. 
  • Allow to cook for 6 minutes on one side without touching, flipping or scrambling them. 
  • Remove the egg and put it on a plate. 
  • Fill the egg like a burrito with Bacon, Tomato, Lettuce and Guacamole


You could do several variations of this. Maybe you hate Guacamole- try it with just the BLT, you could even use these for tacos with ground beef or chicken fajitas. 
If you are looking for a lot of protein and energy for a busy day- this is the perfect breakfast. It was filling and gave me a great energy boost!

This is what I feel like… This is what I look like

This is what I feel like… This is what I look like

“No matter what you’ve been through, no matter what you into, no matter what you see when you look outside your window, Brown grass or Green grass, picket fence or Barbed wire- Never Ever put them down, you just lift your arms higher, raise them til your arms tired. Let em’ know you’re there
That you struggling and survivin’ that you gonna persevereYeah, ain’t no body leavin, no body goin’ home…”Inspirational words from  Lupe Fiasco


This is the song I listen to when I am about to give up or quit running because I think I am going to die but then I start singing this and it get’s me pumped up for the last of my workout. Yes- I run down the streets singing this out loud… On Thursday a friend of mine shared some photos with me and for some reason the image of me rappin along to my gangsta jams came to mind… I laughed hysterically but then got a little self- conscious that, I actually do look like the “this is what I REALLY look like portion of the photo”. GET OUT, GET MOVING- it doesn’t matter if you are the hot chicks or the nerdy, two left feet dancers- what matters is that you feel good and your doing something for you. So go download Lupe Fiasco and sing your heart out in public! 😉 Happy Saturday morning.
