I don’t know about you, but sometimes this Paleo life I live leaves me missing “traditional” breakfast flavors. And by that I mean, sweetness. I love eggs – I do – and I love having an omelette, frittata or just soft boiled eggs for breakfast is second nature to me. That said, every now and then I want something different.
I found a really tasty looking sausage and veggies skillet meal that I can’t wait to try. With onions, apples, sweet potato and maple syrup, this sausage dish looks like something I could make for an easy dinner after work and then have delicious leftovers for the next day. I love the flavors of apples and sausage together – who doesn’t? And adding sweet potatoes for a nice hearty touch just makes me happier. This totally looks like something I would love to eat and I can’t wait to try it out. I’ll for sure let you know once I do!
I was telling my client (you’ve met Kate before!), about “egg overload” and she knew exactly what I was talking about. Kate is constantly cooking things from Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain book – she swears by it – and sent me some pictures of her family’s new Saturday tradition: waffles.
Kate’s family just got a Vitamix and put it straight to work making these Paleo waffles (you just put all ingredients in, save fresh berries, and blend!). Yes, there are eggs in the batter, but there’s also cashews, coconut milk, maple syrup and coconut flour. Totally a nutritious and powerful protein-packed breakfast. Topped with seasonal fruit (and yogurt so her toddler son can do some messy, but fun, dipping) and her family is thrilled.
The recipe is in Against All Grain, but Danielle posted it on this blog, too. I haven’t made these yet, but I want to now that I know they get the approval from three people (Kate, her husband and her son) who don’t have allergies and know what traditional waffles taste like. She said, in fact, that she and her husband like these better than gluten-based waffles because they are lighter. Neither of them felt too full or lethargic after eating and were ready to chase after their little boy all day. She hasn’t tried freezing them yet, but that’s what I’m interested in. I’d love to just pop them in the toaster and bada boom! Instant breakfast is served. Will definitely try them out.
