“Sir, may I have some more please” Cereal

 Sir, may I have some more please Cereal

Cereal?  Paleo?  Zone?  Is this a joke?

Nope, peeps, it’s for real.  In fact, once you try this it’s very likely you’ll never want to go back to those goofy, leaky gut, gluten & grain cereals.  Do you miss your morning oatmeal, how it used to warm you from the inside out and stick to your ribs?  Whether you are looking for something new in your breakfast routine or wanting something new and yummy in your belly for dessert–check this out!

Ingredients:

  • Apple (1/2 = 1C)
  • Almonds (3= 1F)
  • Cinnamon to taste (freebie)
  • A bit of Mother Earth’s thirst quenching H20

Preparation:

  • Block out your apple and almonds according to your needs, chop up the apple 
  • Add everything to a blender (another great use other than the usual margaritas)
  • Add some water, enough to cover the bottom of the blender
  • Roughly chop/pulse/blend to your liking
  • Pour into a microwave safe bowl, cover, warm for approx 1-2 min
  • Top with some extra cinnamon and wee bit extra fruit (berries, banana, etc)

You can make a larger batch of this and store it in the fridge, or just make it as needed.  If zoning, just block out your carbs and fats.  

For instance, if making this for a complete 3 block breakfast:  

3 eggs scrambled (3P), 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (1C,) 2 cups spinach (1C) 

Cereal made with 1/2 apple (1C), 9 almonds (3F)

Paleo Pancakes

 Paleo Pancakes

Ingredients
2 Eggs
1/2 c Nut Butter (not peanut butter), we used Almond Butter
1/2 cup Unsweetned Applesauce
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, I added more because I like the flavor
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract, I added more because of flavor.

Preparation
Mix all ingredients, cook in skillet on medium heat in cocnut oil. Make sure batter is set in pan before fliping and cook on medium to make sure it is cooked all the way through.

This recipe makes 3 servings at 1/2 carb block, 1/2 protein, and 15 fat.

We figured one serving was a little over a 1/4 cup.

You can serve with Turkey Bacon and Fruit if you wish.

Fruit Topping:

Put frozen fruit into a sauce pan on medium heat.  Add a little bit of coconut milk and cover, stirring occasionally.  It should be somewhat soupy so that it covers the entire pancake.

Depending on what fruit is used, the amounts will differ.  Here, I used strawberries and blueberries so did 1/2 c strawberries, and 1/2 c blueberries, which added 2 carb blocks.

2 Block Breakfast

2 block breakfast:

2 egg whites (1 protein block)

1 oz leftover grilled chicken sausage (1 protien block)

0.3 c of steel cut oats (1 carb block)

1 c strawberrrys and 1 teaspoon low-fat plain yogurt (1 carb block)

1 walnut diced (2 fat blocks)

Make this into a 3 block breakfast (pictured) by adding 2 egg whites, 0.3 c of steel oat, and a half a walnut.

Yummy Yummy this will keep you full until your next snack.
