Healthy eating has long been important in our family. But it has definitely been a journey. This Macro Bowl recipe is extremely simple to prepare and is packed full of important nutrients to fuel your body and keep it healthy.
The Husband has recently recommitted himself to eating better. Along with his newfound excitement for eating well has come a certain flair for making simple, yet super healthy meals. Thank the Maker! As a wife who’s used to being the sole cook for every. single. meal. The Husband’s budding culinary expertise is a welcomed thing.
He has been charting his food consumption via macronutrients (“macros”) rather than calories. Macronutrients are the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins that the body needs in large amounts. His signature meal, the Macro Bowl, is one of my all-time favorite meals. The fact that it is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner makes it even better.
On our food journey, we’ve learned to value quality ingredients in our food. For this recipe that means looking for uncured bacon and eggs from true free range hens.
the happy egg co.
I first found the happy egg co. about a year ago. After reading the inside of the box I was intrigued. I already knew that terms “cage free” and “free range” that many companies use can be very confusing to consumers. What I did not know, however, was that I could purchase eggs from true free range hens right in my grocery store!
the happy egg co. delicious, brown-shelled eggs are produced by free to roam hens raised on family run free range farms. Of course, they never use hormones. For this brand, raising their hens humanely isn’t simply a marketing tactic or a misleading mantra. In fact, The Happy Egg Co. is the first commercial free range egg producer in the U.S. to certified by the American Humane Association ™.
For those who’ve never eaten eggs from free range on pasture hens, lemme ‘splain why, once we began eating the happy egg co. eggs, we’ve never gone back. The shells are firmer and don’t crumble all over the place when you crack them. The yokes are bright orange and firm, instead of pale yellow and so weak that they break if you so much as look at them sideways. You can even taste a difference!
We went through a period of time when our local store stopped carrying the happy egg co. (boo!). I was so disappointed! Other eggs just don’t taste great to me. I refuse to eat eggs that taste “blah”. Thankfully, we found another store that carries them, so the happy egg co. is once again a refrigerator staple!
