It’s very interesting working on the internet because you see people’s personalities shift throughout the year. The first of the year, everyone is happy and positive and ready to conquer the world. Spring is still pretty good, but you get a few stragglers who tend to complain about something that is upsetting them. Summer is slow because people are on vacation and concentrating on fun activities. But then fall comes around and all the anger and frustration and stress comes out. And the internet (a place where you don’t have to talk to someone face to face or ever see the human in person) is the perfect place to take it out. And I tend to get those people with frustrations, insecurities, stressors and upsets on my site and social media who really let it out there. I always wonder if other bloggers similar to me get these sort of people and just don’t talk about it, but I have a hard time with that not voicing my upset.

Maybe it’s because I speak my mind or because I’ve become a more confident person over the years, but whatever it is, it makes others mad. It’s such a shame. All my website has really become over the years is a place for inspiration. It’s almost like my vision board in a way. It’s a place I can share my ups and downs and how I’ve moved past those times in my life. It’s a place I can share what food and fitness has inspired me the most and changed my life for the better. It’s a place for me to try new things and learn new skills that I never thought I could do. It’s all a positive thing and it’s a shame that someone sees it in a negative light. So I must thank all of you out there that have left a positive comment or tried a recipe or bought a cookbook or recommended a podcast or told me to try a fun, new workout, or gave me a restaurant to try when I was out of town. Thank you to all the positive people that have kept their positivity going throughout the entire year. It’s a hard thing to do and going after someone over the internet seems to feel good to some, so thank you for not doing that, even when times are tough in your own home.

Ok, enough with that. I feel better now. You know I can’t hold that sh*t in. Anywho, I need to tell you what I’m SO excited about. I think I mentioned it already but it’s coming together now! I recently decided to take our guest bedroom and turn it into an office. We only have people stay with us a couple times a year so the bedroom really wasn’t doing anything except collecting dust and storage. So I took the bed out and cleaned it up and made it my office and photo studio! I’m so so excited about it! I put up little cheap shelves from Target then put up a clothes rack to store some clothes, shoes and accessories then set up a mirror. In front of all that is a desk then right next to the window is where I take all my food photos. I also have a huge cabinet full of all my food props, so it’s easy to take photos in that room. I know you’re probably like – yeah, I don’t care. But I’m SO PUMPED to have a separate space from my entire house so I can cut myself off from work at night. I can’t wait to show you how I put together the space!

It just feels so nice to be a little bit more settled in our home. It’s been a year and a half and I still don’t feel totally settled in. There’s just always something to add or change or improve and it’s always hard to decide what to invest your money in. Right now we are finally really working on our backyard. For a little bit, we were thinking about putting in a decent amount of money to have our dream backyard…but then we decided that saving the money for something else in the future was the better decision. The one thing we are definitely investing in is a hot tub. I hate winters. Snow is gross. It belongs in the mountains, not the city. So we are going to enjoy every bit of winter in a warm tub sipping hot cocoa and highfiving. It’s gonna be magical.

I talked too much today. I’m annoying myself. Kloveyoubye!

    Hi!!! Okay so can egg whites be added or substituted for half of the eggs in this bad boy? Lemme know!

    Also, I love love LOVE your podcast!

    1. juli says:

      i’m sure, i just haven’t made it that way so i can’t say for sure

  2. Heather H says:

    This is a great recipe! Made it after a co-worker recommended it. I am making it for the second time in 2 weeks tonight! I made with sweet italian sausage the first time and will make with breakfast sausage this time. I added in spinach the first time and will do that again too. I make this for dinner and serve with some potatoes on the side (not paleo I know) but delicious. Love this is so easy and tasty.

    My husband will love this. I’ll be making this this week! This is kind of embarrassing because I’ve been eating Paleo for 3 years, buuuuut I’ve never tried ghee, does it just taste like butter?

    1. juli says:

      very similar to butter!

  4. Debra says:

    Love you, love your blog & im sure I’m going to live this breakfast casserole recipe!!! Keep on keepin on ❤️

  5. Krista says:

    I’ve made this three times now! My husband loves it and he doesn’t eat paleo.

    Do you eat duck eggs rather than chicken eggs? I have been eating duck eggs for a while now and my neighbor that supplies me with the fresh duck eggs told me that they are healthier than chicken eggs because they are an alkaline producing food rather than an acidic one like chicken eggs. What is your opinion?

    1. juli says:

      i’ve heard duck eggs are great, i just don’t really want to test it and see if my acne springs back up so i just stay away from eggs all together most of the time.

  7. Suzi says:

    Do you eat any dairy products?

  8. Kat says:

    We love this recipe and I’d like to make it for a large group in a 9×13 pan. Would you double the recipe for a 9×13? 20 eggs and 2 lbs of sausage just seems like a lot! Or maybe do 15 eggs, 1.5 lbs sausage? Thoughts?

    1. juli says:

      i would say you could get away with 20 eggs and 2lbs if you really want to, but the 15 eggs is probably a little safer. but i honestly think either would work!

  9. Ashley says:

    I am an AVID fan of egg casseroles to have for breakfasts throughout the week. I am having a HUGE problem right now with my eggs sticking to the glass baking dishes and it takes all of my energy to get the crap cleaned out! I grease my glass dishes profusely.. do you have any recommendations on types of dishes or anything that may work?! I went out and bought a cast iron skillet and had an even more difficult time cleaning that thing out (obviously because it was brand new).

    I am also an AVID fan of your recipes and have been following you since 2011, probably even before.. since I started full on paleo 🙂 Thank you!!!

  10. Katherine says:

    Whipped this up yesterday for my housemates and it was a HUGE hit- completely gobbled up! We loved the taste of sage and butternut squash to bring in Fall. Thank you so much for always having great options. Paleomg is my go-to spot for delicious meals when I’m gathering with friends and family- your food is at the heart of many great memories!

    1. juli says:

      yay!! so glad you all loved it!
