Hi guys!! Summer is just zipping right along, and I’m super excited about life right now! My family is doing great, and we are ready to celebrate July 4th with family again. Lately we’ve been spending most of our time outdoors enjoying the beautiful south Florida weather (though rainy and dreary at times…June is the start of rainy season for us).
We’ve been busy at the beach, pool, water park, grilling, having friends over, hosting slumber parties, patio sitting, bike riding, kayaking….and hubby and I have been on a weight loss and exercise kick. It’s awesome when a married couple is on the same page regarding health and fitness, right? Love that we motivate each other! We’ve been out in the neighborhood 3 nights a week running together. Since our oldest is 13, and an amazing babysitter….we get that time to ourselves, and it’s been SO NICE! If you’re not there yet….your time is coming, and it’s a huge BLESSING!
I wanted to share this quick and easy breakfast idea with you. I’m sure most of you have had it before, and honestly I’m surprised I’ve lived my life this long without it. I know my fear of tomatoes definitely played a role, but thankfully life has taken me down a new path with my tastebuds. I am all about fresh tomatoes now, and eat them daily! Obviously this isn’t a recipe….just a food idea.
Make the perfect over easy egg with a small amount of butter, sea salt and pepper. Slice 1/4 inch thick fresh raw tomato. Sprinkle tomato with salt and pepper, and top with the egg. Serve warm, and eat with a fork and knife. As you cut each piece, dip in warm yellow yolk. Heaven on a plate…I promise!
Okay tomato lovers….tell me what else I’ve been missing! What are your other tomato secrets? I’ve recently discovered the deliciousness of a fried green tomato! Mmm……
I sometimes eat a tomato like an apple with a little salt shaker near by. Nothing beats a perfectly ripe tomato.
Near had it with an egg though….our chickens are finally laying again, so guess what I will be trying this weekend! YUM!!!

Wish I could eat egg, but I’m sensitive to the white. I put raw yolk in my morning yogurt smoothie, thought.
Tomatoes are great tossed with grated zucchini, avocado and a lime-olive oil dressing.

Your post made me smile huge!! So happy for you & your hubby. Mine lost about 20lbs with WW recently & it was such a motivator, do proud of him. Keep up the good work, and the running!
I love your breakfast, I have it often but over a slice of toasted sesame ezekiel bread, my fave way to start day!
So the secret lies with the Tomato?@!!!! I was afraid this day would come….
Garden ripe grape/cherry tomatoes dipped first in vodka then in kosher salt. Mmmm….
I have always loved fresh tomatoes – like another poster, I eat them like apples. Some summers, I have to stop because my mouth gets sore from the acid!
However, like you, I had never associated tomatoes with breakfast. Then I went to Australia – and my breakfast on my L.A. Sidney Qantas flight was egg with broiled tomato. I soon discovered it was popular there (in the part I visited most, anyway), and now I always eat grilled tomato with eggs. I also sometimes grill a couple of slices as a side for lunch or dinner and sprinkle very lightly with Parmesan.
