Gluten Free Pumpkin Oat Pancakes are a family favorite! These pancakes make for a healthy alternative to the traditional cold cereal breakfasts. Since they are made in a high speed blender, preparing them is quick and easy. You will need gluten free old fashioned oats, pumpkin, and eggs to get started. These can be made the night before and they freeze well!
Start your day with this wonderful Breakfast Bacon and Brussel Sprouts dish! It is so fun to begin the day with a unique, nutrient dense, and simple breakfast. You will love that it only has three ingredients and is very satisfying. The brussel sprouts can be prepared the night before as well as cutting the bacon. This dish can bake while you get ready for your day!
Do you need to satisfy that need for chocolate? Imagine a breakfast granola that was rich in chocolate flavor, provided nutrients to your body, is low in sugar and contains no gluten! It takes about a half hour to prepare and bake this granola. In order to make the Quick Healthy Breakfast Recipes post, it would be recommended that High Energy Cacao Granola be prepared the night before or on your day off. Serve with a dairy free yogurt or dairy free milk.
Guest post from www.thepioneerchicks.com These waffles are my absolute favorite grain-free waffle recipe! Add fresh or frozen blueberries to them, and they make for a great start to the day! These blender blueberry waffles are so easy to make. They require minimal ingredients, make a lot, and are delicious! Leftover Blender Waffles freeze really well. When you are ready to eat them, unthaw in the refrigerator.
Individual Vegetable Omelets can be customized to the individual that is preparing the omelet. Between our four family members we like organic sausage, sweet peppers, mushrooms, spinach and slices of raw cheddar cheese in our omelets. One family members loves adding slices of candy onion. Once the cast iron skillet is warm, the omelet will cook up fast. For the person that uses the skillet next, it will be all prepared and ready to use.
Individual Vegetable Omelet Printable Recipe
Individual Vegetable Omelet
- 1-2 large eggs, beaten organic
- 1 link chicken sausage, sliced Applegate Farms
- 1/2 mini bella mushroom chopped
- 1 small sweet pepper chopped
- spinach, fresh or frozen chopped
- 1 tsp. bacon fat or coconut oil
- 1 slice raw cheddar cheese organic
- Real Salt & Fresh ground pepper to taste
Heat a small cast iron skillet on low to medium heat. Melt a teaspoon of bacon fat or coconut oil in the cast iron skillet. Begin to add your vegetables. (Be creative! We often will grab veggies from a frozen stir fry mix to add.)
Saute vegetables in the bacon fat or coconut oil. Add your egg(s) that have been slightly beaten. Use a spatula to make sure the egg covers the whole pan. Once the egg begins to look more solid, flip your omelet.
Press down on your omelet to make sure all the liquid is cooked. Flip again. Add the slice of raw cheddar cheese to one side. Fold the omelet in half and remove from the pan. Enjoy your breakfast!!
Is eating breakfast that important to my health?
Yes! Choosing to make time for this essential meal is important to your long term health. Our bodies have been taking a break from food and liquid for several hours. The average time of going without food is 10-12 hours. That is almost half our day! Our body, specifically our cells and organs, crave hydration, nutrients, and protein to convert into fuel.
Studies have shown that eating a breakfast that is nutrient dense decreases the risk for diabetes, specifically in women, heart disease and improves our cognitive function. Not to mention it also assists with maintaining a health weight.
Media often promotes and advertises breakfast food that promote disease and have no benefits to our bodies. I might encourage you to skip the boxed cereal, store bought doughnuts and pop tarts. Chose a healthy breakfast!
