What comes together in a blink of an eye for a quick Saturday breakfast? Scrambled eggs, of course! As I’m working hard at leaving carbs out of the equation, I reached for the broccoli staring at me when I opened the refrigerator door. Come with me, and chop, chop, it was ready to be included in the pan with the eggs.
Since the beginning of this year, I have not eaten bread, biscuits, or toast! This has truly been quite an experience, and frankly, one that I never thought I would be able to sustain for a very long time. I come from a carb-happy family, in which bread, biscuits toast and/or crackers are incorporated into each meal….each meal! My Aunt Neni, who I adore, doesn’t understand how I can have a meal and not finish it off with a piece of bread – yes, you read that right….that’s her “after dessert” treat!
I chose this green path for my health and I am happy, thrilled, shocked that I was able to lose 10 lbs within the first couple of weeks – totally unheard of as that had never ever happened before. Yes, I jump started a cleaner way of eating using Dr. Gundry’s The Plant Paradox. I am so grateful for this book – the recipes are super easy and delicious, and as I love to cook, I’ve tweaked some of them according to my personal taste.
But back to the eggs…what did I put in them?
A small handful of shredded Gruyere
2 chopped chicken and apple sausage breakfast links, Applegate Naturals – found them at Whole Foods and had to try them, and
a dash of freshly ground pepper, and that’s it! No added salt of any kind due to the sodium in the breakfast links, and after the eggs were almost done, the chopped broccoli went into the pan, and Voila! A delicious breakfast without bread.
Yes, I can eat meals without bread, Tia Neni!
