Whole30 Day 1 - Breakfast

Let's start off by saying that I did not sleep well last night. I don't know if it was the excitement of starting Whole30 or worry about not waking up in enough time to begin breakfast preparations, either way, I slept like crap.

The plan this morning was to make Zucchini pancakes with a side of scrambled eggs.

- 1 medium size zucchini
- 1 medium size green onion
- 1 large egg
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying

- Grate zucchini into a small bowl.

- Finely chop 1 green onion and mix with the zucchini.
- Combine 1 large egg into the bowl and mix thoroughly adding salt and pepper to taste.
-Spoon three mounds of the zucchini mixture into the pan and fry until lightly browned, pressing down to flatten. Flip and while second side is browning,

Well, they were gross. I made the kids each try a bite before I ever did. I don't think the taste was too bad, but the texture was nauseating. It was very... liquidy/squishy inside. They were cooked all the way, but I think because zucchini is soft inside made the texture not good. Regardless, we are not eating them. The kids had scrambled eggs and I am contemplating my choices.

As the morning has gone on (I have been up for about 2 hours now) My stomach is not happy. I really have never been much of a breakfast person, well, I take that back, much of an EGG person. So I am going to have to find some alternate breakfast options because I have a hard time eating eggs not covered in cheese or on bread.

I've dirtied so many dishes this morning.

I have always loved to BAKE. I have never been good at COOKING. There is a difference. Now I am having to learn to cook and it's interesting to say the least!

So for breakfast today I am settling for 3 eggs, 3 sliced mushrooms and leftover asparagus, all cooked together into a... I dunno. Does it need a name?

I have higher hopes for lunch..
