I felt like a different breakfast this morning – something that I don’t normally have. So, I had my husband make me 2 fried eggs with toast! He had them for breakfast yesterday and I couldn’t stop thinking about them, so why not?! It was a perfect way to get in my protein after my workout, and try out my freshly made fig jam.
Back up to my workout. I went for a quick run outside when I got up this morning – 4.15 miles in 33 minutes. Then, I did a quick weight session.
Quick Upper Body Weights
(3 sets of 12 each, 10 lb weights)
- Overhead press
- Chest press on stability ball
- Triceps dips
- Triceps extension
- Hammer curl
- Fly’s on bench
- Front raises
Got to fit in those weights somehow! They make you strong and lean!
Once home, it was time for breakfast. My eggs were delicious. I haven’t had fried eggs in awhile, so this was a nice change of pace. They tasted so much better than the greasy fried eggs you would get out!
On my two slices of whole grain toast, I spread my fresh fig jam.
She soaked the figs for a few hours before blending them, so I did the same. I just used the half bag of Turkish figs that I had left, which was about 14-15 figs. Make sure to cover the figs with water.
After a few hours, I took out the figs, cut their little stems off, and placed them in my food processor. Make sure to reserve some of the soaking water – I added 1/4 cup per 14-15 figs for easier blending. Gena does the same.
Then blend! This happened very quickly – not even a minute of blending and I had fresh fig jam!
I love figs – the seeds are so sweet. I made extra so that I could keep this around, but this spread is definitely easy enough to make every time you want fig jam.
This was delicious spread on my toast this morning. I added a thin smear of cherry jam along with the fig jam. A winning combination!
Mmmm…good breakfast after a workout! Eggs & Toast, served with tea and a side of champagne mango – I can’t get enough of these things.
Have a great Sunday!
