‘Tis the season for berry picking! When we came home with 34 pound of blueberries, I created these scrumptious blueberry-lemon muffins. You can use blanched almond flour in this recipe if you’re on GAPS, or spelt or wheat flour if you’re not. Enjoy!
Use homemade pre-soaked oats — or the fabulous Touch’O Honey pre-soaked oats from JoshEWEa’s Garden — to offer a breakfast of yummy choices for everyone! Let each family member top pre-soaked oats with their toppings of choice: crispy nuts, shredded coconut, assorted fresh and/or dried fruit, raw honey, and/or raw milk. This homemade (and easy) granola bar offers an excellent alternative to today’s highly processed, extruded breakfast cereals.
Preparing for the menu plan service each week has given me ample opportunity to make extra special breakfasts for my family. And they’re loving it! This morning we’re eating a 5-spice baked oatmeal; last week we gobbled up this easy baked omelet. Because it is baked, this is an “omelet” you can’t screw up — that’s why I like it so much.
It’s time to share your probiotic breakfast ideas! In the coming weeks, we’re going to hit every meal and then some. The goal being: to share ideas and recipes for getting probiotics with every bite (or at least every meal). Today we focus on breakfast. Got old or new posts with probiotic breakfast ideas? Link up!
Egg salad! We love it. It is a great meal for a busy mom, because it is so easy to whip up in a pinch. This is my basic egg salad, which is admittedly, nothing fancy. I season to taste, so it is not much of a recipe, either. Be sure to share how you make your egg salad! Do you have any special ingredients that kick yours up?
I wanted a granola recipe that combined the benefits of soaked grains and soaked nuts. Soaking the grains neutralizes phytic acid, a mineral absorption blocker. Soaking the nuts starts the process of germination, de-activating enzyme inhibitors. A raw granola that does this is a highly nutritious and a great source of digestive enzymes!
This week’s Real Food Quote is from a Spring 2009 Wise Traditions article, “The Good Scot Diet.” I selected a fun quote that details a common Scottish breakfast porridge, calders. It not only sounds interesting to eat, but would be a real time saver, as it was made early in the week and eaten as the days went by.
