Laughing all the way…

The holidays may be over, but we can still be jolly.  With the Fasting Lifestyle we can enjoy the food we eat, feel virtuous due to the discipline of Fasting, and enjoy the fun of watching the numbers on the scale go lower.

Whisk the eggs and herbs together. Take the cheese from the ‘fridge [HINT: keep it cold so that it will slice better] and slice it into as many thin slices as you can. Spritz a hot non-stick or cast iron pan with cooking oil and pour in the eggs/herbs. When the bottom begins to set, lay the cheese slices over half the surface of the eggs. Cook to your degree of doneness, fold and plate. Slice apple, toast bread, shake up the smoothie, pour your hot beverage and laugh along with the cow.
