Wednesday, December 01, 2010      4 comments

I think the title says it all. Here's why. I'm allergic to eggs and yeast, and I'm trying to avoid grains. What kind of high-protein breakfast can I eat that's quick and easy? I've tried cooking up some canadian bacon, but I'm not thrilled wi... Read more
