One pot meals have always been some of the quickest and tastiest meals that I cook. The flavors blend so well together and to be honest, who doesn’t want a quick and easy meal. Lately, as I’ve been studying for my finals with NTA, I have been all about making nutrient dense healthy meals that don’t take a lot time or prep. This one is a winner! Packed with a power house of super greens, sweet potato, zucchini, bone broth and sweet onions. It’s sure to please. And its, grain free, gluten free, egg free and delicious. The sausage is from my local farmer, creek side farms and it’s so good.
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1 medium zucchini
- 1/4 sweet onion
- 1/2 cup bone broth
- 2 cups power greens ( spinach, kale, swiss chard )
- 1/4 pound of sausage
- Chop the onion, sweet potato and zucchini in medium sized chunks.
- Sauté the sausage until done.
- All everything to a skillet and cook on medium for 15 minutes.
- add salt and pepper to taste.
Tomorrow our family starts the 30 clean family challenge. We will be eliminating gluten, dairy, soy and sugar for 21 days. So today I am experimenting with what to make for breakfast tomorrow. These are a winner!
For those of you that are following a clean eating program that focuses on real food that is dairy free and grain free, these are a delicious option. They fit into a Keto diet and even a whole 30 program and they really hit the spot when you are feeling like you need something similar to a bready carb. Who would have thought you could eat pancakes? Well these are low carb and filled with healthy fats too!
You can serve them with sliced strawberries or even top with some heavy whipping cream if you are on the Ketosis diet (and can do dairy- Or use coconut cream that has whipped.) Serve them for breakfast, a snack or even “breakfast for dinner.”
I’ll be making theses again and again. They taste even better than the ones made with flour. Give them a try. They may be one of your new favorites too.
- ¾ cup almond or any nut butter
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2- 3/4 C. Ground Flax meal
- ⅓ cup coconut cream
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil for greasing
- Optional: Fresh sliced organic strawberries
- Dump everything in a bowl. I used my hand blender to mix it all up.
- Cook on a cast iron skillet that has been greased with coconut oil or ghee to keep it dairy free. If you can eat diary- go ahead and use butter! 😉
Happy Valentine’s Day friends-
I love chocolate- and chocolate chip cookies are one of my all time fav’s. But they can be loaded with refined white sugar, bleached white flour, and if you buy them pre-made, loaded with hydrogenated oils. UGH! They may taste good going down, but the sugar crash that follows is not so pretty. In my quest to find healthy, delicious, kid pleasing and family pleasing dishes- I have come up with this one that is a HIT! On all fronts- Kids, hubby and of course me! It has even been the star of a recent retreat as the favorite dessert item that beat out Whole Foods chocolate chip cookies in the taste test. YAY! So why the name Almond Lumpies- When my kids were little I made these and they named them almond lumpies when they found out they were made with almond flour. the way we scooped them out onto the pan- make them look like little lumps. So there you have it- Almond Lumpies- the name stuck!
It is loaded with REAL food items. No chemicals, additives, preservatives and a good balance of healthy fats, protein and sweetened with raw honey. Because it is made with almond flour it is gluten free- and the almonds, eggs and coconut oil help balance out the sugar from the honey to keep blood sugar levels from spiking. So enjoy your chocolate today. I am!
