Christmas is officially over and we’re about to ring in another year.  Maybe you’re considering this your last weekend to indulge in those holiday goodies.  We have some not-so-healthy bites on our weekend menu, but my head is already thinking about turning around my eating habits next week.  I’m ready to say good-bye to holiday indulgences and stock our fridge full of healthier options.

I don’t know about you, but when I start my day with a healthy meal, I kind of don’t want to wreck that flow the rest of the day.  What I eat for breakfast tends to set the tone for what I’ll eat for lunch and dinner.  That’s why I’ll have an egg pretty much every single day.

If you asked me what my favorite breakfast food is, I would definitely tell you “eggs.”  They’re such a versatile protein.  Think about it – there’s not many ways you can eat cereal, but you can switch it up every morning with an egg!  I never get bored with breakfast with eggs.  My husband likes to whip us up omelets or egg wraps during the weekend.  During the week, I start my day with egg whites or a fried egg.

Since most of us are probably thinking about eating healthier, I decided to use some of the seasonal produce I had to create a seriously colorful breakfast hash!  I ditched potatoes for butternut squash and cooked it in a skillet alongside onions, kale, and bacon.  Then, I topped it with a couple fried eggs.

Want to get a little crazy?  Add a few splashes of hot sauce on top before serving!  I swear, I get that from my grandmother.  The woman used to carry a small bottle of Tabasco sauce in her purse and splash her eggs with it in the morning.  Now, I kind of see why she did it!  It adds the perfect amount of flavor and heat to wake up your taste buds!
