I used a 4" hotel pan and cooked this overnight. When I awoke, this is what I found:

It didn't last long, but primed me for the day. High in protein and healthy fat while providing ample nutrients, this meal is a win-win-win!

Alright, I've got to continue making moves, so I'll leave you with a quote from the president for whom my elementary school was named... We were the Roosevelt Roughriders.

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Encouraging you to work hard, eat clean and make constant improvements to your life.
