Sunday breakfast - Don't forget the greens!!

First let me start off by saying that IF you are going to eat eggs they should be pasture raised organic eggs from a local farmer. There is a big difference from the organic eggs you buy from the grocery store. 
The yolks are most nutritious part of the egg and best eaten raw but who's doing that? not closest thing to raw for me would be lightly poached. *I only started eating eggs again a couple months ago since I'm pregnant and I only eat them this way!
(There are only 2 places I know of to get my eggs from in S.FL so if you want to know message me on FB)

Anyway the purpose of this post is my yummy nutritious Sunday breakfast! 
Let's call it Arugula Poached Egg Open Face Sandwich or Poached Egg Salad with a side of toast....

I do it 2 different ways

Option 1 - Open Face Sandwich option
       Take one poached egg and place on a piece of toast. Puncture the egg and let the yolk cover the piece of toast. Tear up pieces of arugula and cover on top then sprinkle with a dash of celtic salt.

Option 2 - Salad option
     Take a bowl of arugula. Place your poached egg on top. Cut up so yolk ends up being like a dressing (sounds gross I know but I swear it's good lol) sprinkle a dash of celtic salt on top then eat with a piece of toast.

This is a great way to get your greens in at breakfast too. My husband even loves this. He seems to think arugula kinda taste like bacon lol! Hey whatever it takes!
On days he wants an omelet with red, orange, yellow peppers I cut the omelet in half and put a bunch of arugula in the middle and make a sandwich like so for him. Either way he hasn't once bitched about missing his bacon :)

I always use Gluten Free bread too. Deland Bakery's Zuchini Millet which shown in above pics OR UDI's Whole Grain Gluten Free bread!


Peace and Love,

Happy Teeth :D

Oh boy, the things that excite me these days!! I finally found a FLUORIDE FREE toothpaste that I really like YAY! I have been looking for one for quite some time. I've tried a bunch of different brands, flavors, ect... and never found one that I used more than a few times. Honestly I would always feel like when I did try one my teeth looked yellow the next day. I know that sounds crazy, because it is, I mean realistically I don't think it's possible for that to happen so I figured it was just in my head. Either way I never kept using it. 

Well I finally found a winner!! My husband tried it as well and agrees!

I always figured I would use the fluoride free more natural toothpaste once a day and my Crest Scope Outlast the other time but I like this NOW XyliWhite so much I haven't used the Crest since. 
You want to make sure you get the NOW XyliWhite Toothpaste Gel - Platinum Gel with Baking Soda (Fluoride Free) as NOW has a few different toothpaste to choose from. I'm pretty sure the it's the baking soda in it that I like as I don't think any of the other brands I have tried in the past had baking soda in them.

Anyway I tried to find some good articles on the effects of fluoride and couldn't find anything I really liked. 

Here is a link 10 Facts about Fluoride

Yes, like everything else we thought was good for us, it's NOT!
