Pittsburgh Parade 2014



Growing up, I don't recall St. Patrick's Day ever being a huge event, but my Mom always did a little something to make the day special. My siblings and I (I have 2 sisters and 1 brother), would usually wake up to a "Green Breakfast" on St. Patrick's day.  The breakfast included dyed green milk, eggs, and pancakes. Sound a little unappetizing?
Well, we loved it and I have decided to carry on the tradition in our household for us today since the Holiday Starts the weekend of the Parade here in Pittsburgh!
(The world's 2nd Biggest St. Patty's Day Parade I might add)
(but in a slightly more appetizing way).

So, here are a few delightful St. Patrick's breakfast ideas...green Buckwheat pancakes ,eggs in a shamrock nest, broccoli quiche and green coconut milk peppermint creamer for coffee!

Note: To make dyed food look more appetizing,
add a few drops of yellow to make the green a warmer hue.


The Shamrock Eggs are Super Easy!!
Cut the Green Peppers into Rings and steam first a little to soften before dropping the egg in the middle!! The egg will cook fast so you don't want the pepper CRISP!!
21 Day Fix Approved and Easy to track for me and fun for my guests!!

  1. The quiche recipe looks great. Can you tell me how you count that for your containers? I get that you should eat a yellow size of quiche, but how many of what do you could that for?

    1. The best way to figure it out is explained in the book. There is a restaurant and Mom's favorite guide in your eating plan book on page 70 :)

  2. I have the same question as Amy. I just made this, but I don't know what containers are used - I understand to fill a yellow. But does it count as just yellow? Do I have to account for the eggs and broccoli?

  3. When you get confused on how to measure or track a "mixed" meal, Page 70 in my Eating Plan book is a section that I found helpful as a restaurant guide and the Fix Mixed food guide.
    Hope this helps.

  4. Has anyone figured out the breakdown yet? Page 70 is not helping me :(

  5. For the Broccoli quiche Recipe it would be 3 Green, 2 Red, 1 Blue, 1/2 yellow, and 3 teaspoons.
    For the milk you can replace 3 yellow containers a week so this recipe would count as 1 yellow replacement container.
    That is the cup breakdown for the entire dish.
    A serving size is a yellow container and depending on how many servings you have you would subtract the containers used for that day.

  6. So are there 9 half-cup servings (yellow container size) servings in the recipe? Thanks!
