Breakfast food has to hands down my FAVE meal of the day. I'm not sure if it's because it's the first meal that I get to stuff my face with moments after I wake up? Or maybe it's because anything with eggs, turkey bacon and CHEESE is just guaranteed to be a good time.
To be totes honest, I'm not really sure if I can pinpoint one solid reason. All that I DO know, is that these Skinny Bacon Mozzarella Breakfast Melts sent me right into my happy place.
Oh, all the feels ♥ ♥
Speaking of happy places, I have some super awesome news that I've been dying to share with you all for over a week now (I don't even know how I've held it in for that long!!!) Buuuuut....
I got into nursing school!!!
All of the sleepless nights, emotional breakdowns, Starbucks driven - sleep deprived days all suddenly seemed so worth it the moment I opened up that acceptance letter. Words can't describe how happy I am knowing that I'm one step closer to living my dream.
The road to becoming a pediatric nurse practitioner doesn't seem so daunting and endless after all 🙂
Although I don't officially start until May 15th, I've been taking some time to do some prepping and just sort of organize my life. Because, you know...it can get a little cray.
Some of the major things that I have been focusing on are quick, easy (and most importantly healthy) make-ahead recipes that'll sustain me through the long days of clinicals to avoid feeling pressured to buy fast food on impulse. These Skinny Mozzarella Bacon Breakfast Melts really fit the bill because they can be made in large batches and stored in the freezer for later.
Oh, make ahead breakfast foods, you are very loved. Yep, I'm also talking about you:
