Breakfast Anyone?

It is so frustrating when you step on the scale and it doesn’t tell you what you think it should tell you based on what you’ve been doing!!!! Grrrr….I guess I just have to trust this process and trust that I’ve done my homework.  On a side note my , oh so clever spouse, thinks we should invent a scale that screams “Get off! Get off!” when you step on it. Hardy har har I say. Very funny. It is to laugh ( A gold star to anyone who catches that reference) . Came right home this morning and got into the kitchen. Cleaned it first..Yay me! Then I started cooking. Prepared that’s gonna be me.  Don’t get me wrong I love to cook but only when I want to. For this to work though I am going to have stuff ready to go. I have a busy life chasing after my two boys, one husband, a small business and a partridge in a pear tree. I can’t be standing in my kitchen thinking “What am I going to eat?” 20 min. before the meal is supposed to be on the table because that’s when I’ll fail. Breakfast is a danger zone for me because it’s so easy to reach for that package of instant oatmeal. It should have a skull and crossbones on it! So, I am making one of my favorite recipes from http://www.paleomg.com Breakfast Meatza! Here’s the link: http://paleomg.com/breakfast-meatza/

This is some good stuff! My kids don’t like it with the over easy eggs so I top it with scrambled eggs. I love colorful food so I used purple and red sweet potatoes. I think next time instead of eggs I am going to cook some apples with the onions and the bacon and top it with that. Yum! I haven’t found a recipe yet on PaleOMG’s website or her cookbook that I haven’t liked yet. All of them are really easy to follow and taste divine! I also made these:

Soo yummy especially when I am craving a cold dessert like ice cream. It really hits the spot.

I’ve been trying to learn to cook with alternative flours and coconut butter ( also called cream concentrate ) especially to replace treats and to give some variety to breakfast. Coconut oil manufacturer Tropical Traditions has a TON of coconut related recipes on their site http://www.tropicaltradtions.com . Not all of them are grain free but there are many that fit the way I am training myself to eat and cook.  I made these:

They are awesome! Not to sweet with good texture and taste. Bonus? Super easy and fast!

I posted pictures of my treats side by side. The one with the purple on the top is the honey blueberry and the other is the coconut banana cream.
