AIP Breakfast Bowl
About a month ago I shared my breakfast on Instagram. Ok, most mornings I do. I guess it’s the meal I have the most time to prepare. Jack plays really well alone in the morning and we have our routine down. After he is fed, he’ll take over the living room with some elaborate pretend game. In this fleeting moment of independence I make my coffee, my breakfast and catch up with blog stuff a bit. It’s a ritual which won’t last forever, but for now we love it.
Many of you asked about this recipe that morning and I sort of fumbled a how to in the comments.
This is a pretty standard meal for me. It’s easy, it makes extra (broccoli puree), and it’s delicious! There is something that I love about purees topped with protein. My mom used to make us “pure de malanga” as kids and put steak over it, with the pan sauce… oh em gee. So good. I think I was shooting for that here, a childhood comfort food. The way the thick puree coats each bite. Yum!
Yeah, not your typical breakfast… but after three Whole30’s and the autoimmune protocol, you kind of let go of traditional meal standards.
Can I eat eggs? Sure, and I love them, but after completing the elimination diet that has changed my life, I like to re-visit it sometimes. It’s always a good place to start when I want to feel great!
