Recently, there’s been one burning question I’ve gotten from you.
“Hanna, I understand and can feel the benefits of going gluten and grain free, but what on Earth do I do when it comes to breakfast? I have no ideas, and it preferably has to be done within 3 seconds. Thanks!”
Well, I’m not sure I can help you with the 3-second rule, but I do have tons of yummy and (relatively) quick breakfast options in mind.
The key, as always, to keeping your healthy routine going, is to P R E P A R E. Prepare and be prepared for those 3 second breakfasts.
All these 11 breakfast recipes are gluten- grain-, soy- and yeast free. I’ve included the carb count for my fellow diabetic out there, so you know how much insulin to take.
1 tbsp coconut flour (I use desiccated coconut, works just as well)
1 dl coconut cream (or coconut milk or almond milk)
(Apparently you can make this without the eggs too, adding some coconut oil instead)
Whisk in a pot on low heat until there is a porridge like consistency.
Carbs: 6.7 grams
Halve an avocado and put one half per serving in an oven form. Crack an egg into where the pit was, and bake it in the oven for ca 10 minutes at 175 degrees (or until the egg is cooked).
Carbs: 9 grams
True GREEN Smoothie
2 fistfuls of kale, spinach, or other leafy green
0.5 tbsp coconut oil
fresh lemon juice to taste
fresh ginger, grated
Put all ingredients in a blender, blend, drink, feel amazing.
Carbs: 25 grams
This is a super quick one, you can even eat it on the run (although I really don’t recommend eating while on the run)
Take sandwich ham, roll a piece of cheese and some vegetable (cucumber, bell pepper, avocado) in it to make a roll.
Carbs: barely 2 grams per roll
Apple & Almond Butter
Slice up an apple. Spread almond butter on it. Enjoy.
Carbs: 20 grams
Greek Yoghurt with Homemade Muesli
You can find the muesli recipe in my recipe book you can sign up for below.
Carbs: Yoghurt 5 grams, muesli depending on what you put in it.
2,5 dl coconut or almond milk
0.5 dl chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla powder
A pinch of salt
This can be endlessly varied with a few berries, cinnamon, cocoa powder, some nuts (pistachios, perhaps?), some lemon juice,
Mix this in a bowl, and let it stand in the fridge over night. Ready for breakfast the day after!
Carbs: 20 grams for the whole thing, but it’s enough for about 3 or 4 servings, at least, making it 5 grams of carbohydrate per serving.
Carbs: 55 grams for all of them, so if you make it into 10 balls, it’s 5,5 grams of carbs each.
Eggs have endless uses: Scrambled Eggs with smoked salmon or bacon and vegetables, Omelet, or
Bacon Egg Muffins
Line your muffin form with one or two slices of bacon. Either crack in the eggs whole or whisk them together as for scrambled. Put the muffin forms into the oven at 175 degrees until it’s all cooked (ca 10 mins)
Carbs: eggs only have trace carbs, but 13 g of protein each. Remember that if you find you need to bolus for gluconeogenesis.
