Do you want to know my secret to pristine relaxation in the midst of being a mom to three small boys? I wake-up at 5:00 in the morning. And don’t call me crazy. TWO hours of quiet every morning, drinking coffee in silence, getting some work done in peace, eating breakfast alone without interruption, enjoying a beautiful, peaceful summer morning. Have I convinced you yet? It is a million times worth it! After waking up early in the morning and having this quiet time to myself, I always have a better day.
I made this eggs florentine breakfast pizza at 6:00 in the morning, does it look more peaceful to you than other things I make? It does to me. 🙂
This eggs florentine breakfast pizza is pretty much everything. Crispy thin pizza crust, gooey feta cheese creamed spinach and of course the egg must be runny. I love using organic; pasture-raised eggs because of the delicious taste and increased nutrition — the yolks are deeper yellow which means they have a higher Omega 3, and they are so very pretty.
Eggs are a staple in my family’s diet. We eat several dozen eggs every week. Not only are they healthy, filling and versatile, but I turn to eggs so often because it is an animal protein that I feel is better for the environment. At Handsome Brook Farm, they believe that the happier and healthier the hen, the tastier the egg. The chickens and hens are pasture-raised where they have full freedom to, well, be a chicken. Handsome Brook Farm hens get at least 108 square feet per bird on rotated pastures and are organically-fed, which gives the eggs a beautiful golden-orange yolk and an unmistakable flavor. Handsome Brook Farm eggs are more delicious and nutritious for us and more humane for the hens.
Two reasons why I tend to make eggs a lot is because they are so fast to prepare, and there are so many ways to prepare them! I can make eggs for my family several times a week, and the dish I make is usually different each time. I made myself this spinach florentine breakfast pizza because I prefer breakfast with runny eggs and with lots of greens included. I was pleasantly surprised though when my kids also gobbled this up when they finally came downstairs for breakfast.
