  • This is such a special breakfast at the Arnold household because I only make it on the weekends.

This kind of breakfast is earned so you better put in some work at the gym before eating this! It’s a starchy meal and probably several hundred calories but it’s full of real food.

It is the most satisfying breakfast I have ever made!

Pork Chorizo vs Soy Chorizo

Here’s the comparison. Now after just reading the ingredient list which would you choose?

Soy chorizo wins all the way! The nutritional facts and the taste are much better than pork chorizo. And admitting this is not easy for me because I was raised on pork chorizo, so you have got to believe me!
