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.
