Before I start this post, I want to be clear: I LOVE my grains! We eat all kinds in this house; soft wheat, kamut, spelt, rye, barley, teff, amaranth, and oats. But, I have been wanting to cut back a little on our grain consumption, so I came up with a Monday-Friday grain free breakfast Menu.
It's really easy!
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, we have breakfast shakes. I put all kinds of things in our shakes. Here are some ideas:
*EFA oil blend
*green's mix (mine includes alfalfa, wheat grass, beet root, spirulina, cholorella, and spinach)
*colostrum powder (when we are under the weather)
*cultured fruits I have made
*cultured ginger root
*lettuce or other salad greens
It's really amazing what you can hide in a shake. My toddler eats them with us and it's a great way to get some super nutrition into him.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are my omelette days. I like to add various veggies to our eggs such as onion, swiss chard, zucchini, and mushrooms. Sometimes I will add cheese and some turkey bacon or chicken sausage.
Saturday and Sunday are our grain breakfasts. I love making pancakes, or sourdough breakfast cake, or fruit cobblers. They are perfect for the weekends.
I would love to hear any other grain free breakfast ideas!
