2015-08-11 08.12.50Eating clean can be a challenge if you crave variety. As a chef, creativity and variety are what I do. I’m not fully me unless I am developing something new, innovative, or just plain fun. While on the Whole30, breakfast can get a little mundane. I am not complaining; the benefits far outweigh my egg-boredom. But for someone who already doesn’t enjoy savory things in the morning, 30 days is just a tad long. So today I mixed it up ever so slightly and created a little sweet and savory hash, of sorts, with a perfectly cooked sunny side up egg.  I never really eat eggs this way. Scrambled is my favored method for cooking eggs. But again, I am craving variety, so this super clean little breakfast became quite joyful and delicious.
