One of the most difficult challenges of going ‘mostly grain free’ has been to find breakfast foods for our teen. (I’m making home-made muesli for the rest of the family.) Many of the grain free blogs, sites and books suggest leftovers, meat, eggs etc. Truthfully in a family of ten we rarely have leftovers, teen only likes fried eggs, and there is only so much meat one can eat. Besides the biggest issue is our teen wants breakfasts that are quick and easy, wanting something reminiscent of cereal. Finally we have hit upon a plan that includes ease and variety and that pleases teen and budget.
Bacon & Eggs, twice a week
Apple fruinola, twice a week
Vanilla Almond Granola, thrice a week.
We’ve altered this recipe a little, we omitted the strawberries, instead teen adds tin peaches to the granola after poured.
Wellness Mama also agrees that breakfast is one of the biggest challenges on a grain free lifestyle, and has gathered a few ideas together. Elana has also a number of ideas, I’m rather keen to make some of her granolas. They appear reasonably similar to Spunky Coconut’s Vanilla Almond Granola.
I’d love to hear other suggestions and recipes.
