Weekends are about eating. One of my favorite parts about the weekend is eating breakfast. This is the one time I have during the week to actually make myself a hot nutritious breakfast, sit down with coffee, eat, and most importantly, enjoy it! The most favorite weekend breakfast has to be pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Not only does it taste great, but it is also packed with protein, healthy fats, and clean carbs to fuel your weekend workout. Here is Brick Betty's recipe for this plate of deliciousness!
Weekend Blueberry Pancakes (Makes 4 Large Pancakes and is gluten free)
1 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup Almond Flour
1/2 Cup + Buckwheat Flour
1 Tsp. Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Honey
1/2 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk from a Can (you can also use water)
1 tbsp. Coconut Oil (optional)
Large Handful of fresh Blueberries (preferably the organic kind)
Place 1 Tbsp Butter in a skillet and melt on low heat. Mix dry ingredients almond flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a small mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients honey, coconut milk, egg, and coconut oil to dry ingredients and stir. Add blueberries. If you prefer your pancakes thinner, add more coconut milk or water, if you want them thicker add more buckwheat or almond flour. Find the consistency you like. Top your pancakes with your choice of Almond butter, Real Maple syrup, nuts or fruit!
Veggie and Egg Scramble
1 Tbsp. Butter
2 whole Eggs (preferably the organic, cage free ones)
1 Tbsp Water
1/2 cup Chopped Vegetables (any combination peppers, onions, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, etc)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place 1 Tbsp Butter in a cast iron skillet on low heat. In a bowl, combine 2 eggs and water and mix with a fork. Add in your vegetables and give one final stir. Pour egg mixture in the skillet and use a spatula to "scramble" the eggs in the skillet.
As for the Bacon, Central Market (if you live in Texas) sells a wide variety of Organic ones and of course you can find Organic Bacon at Whole Foods as well. Read the package to find ones that do not add have added sugar in the form of Turbinado, Raw Sugar, or Cane Juice and of course buy Nitrate free. Pederson's brand has a bacon marked "Paleo Friendly" that does not have sugar added to it. The less amount of ingredients in the Bacon, the better!
