Brunch Is Like a Cool Thing People Sometimes Do

I started the morning out by taking a barre class alongside a lovely friend named Katie. We then headed to Aldi to shop for ingredients for a day of cooking, dancing to Christmas music, and eating a tasty fiesta egg skillet brunch.

Pinterest has a plethora of brunch options. However, if you just search “brunch,” delicious-looking but likely unhealthy images of french toast, dense muffins, and cheesy eggs pop up. When I searched “healthy brunch,” the results were a bit more promising health wise.

I saw this picture, and fell in love. I wanted it. Then. Right then. So I checked the recipe out, but like always, I tweaked it.

Taylor‘s is a baked dish. Ours is for the stove top. We served it over raw baby spinach with salsa, hummus, half a slice avocado, and garlic couscous on the side.
