Inspired by: Nourished and Nurtured
Breakfast has been a big adjustment for us on the GAPS diet because we use to eat easier go-to foods that I had made earlier in the week like homemade granola and raw milk, homemade yogurt with nuts and berries or a baked oatmeal dish. Not being a morning person, this was great for me….i’m not exactly thrilled to start cooking at 7:00am.
But things have changed, and I am being stretched. Not a bad thing necessarily.
This is a dish I adapted from Nourished and Nurtured, one of my absolute favorite sites (her recipes ALWAYS taste good!) We are eating about 4 dozen eggs a week, so this recipe is great because it really makes our eggs stretch farther. It serves at the very least 2 breakfast meals for my whole family, and probably more like 3. This is GREAT for my whole not-wanting-to-cook-in-morning issue. I love getting veggies in right from the start of the day too.
I cooked up this sausage a couple days ago to use half of it in one of our new favorite recipes, sausage balls. I love being able to use meat I’ve prepared for two meals- that is SUCH a bonus to me!! This is where meal planning really does come in handy. I do a relaxed meal-planning, which is huge progress for me, as I’ve adamantly resisted meal planning for 5 years now!
This recipe is very tasty, and because it’s so chocked full of goodness, it keeps you nice and full.
