Talk about easy, no-fuss breakfast. Before you freak out, if you didn’t know already, let me inform you that Ezekiel products are in-fact compliant with most recovery programs. They do not contain flour, but are made of sprouted grains. Some don’t like it, some are triggered by it and don’t eat it, I have neither problem. You can find Ezekiel bread in most natural food stores and normal grocery stores, often in the freezer section or gluten-free section. (Remember – flour free and gluten free are NOT the same thing, we don’t eat any flour here, not even gluten-free flour, because of how it hits our brains).

If you aren’t into Ezekiel bread, you can also roast rounds of sweet potato to make sweet potato “toast” I made both of these kinds of toast and I can honestly say I prefer the sweet potato rounds to the Ezekiel toast, it is just so warm and sweet potato-y and soft and decadent and delicious. Try both and see what you think! (If you are on maintenance, you could even do one of each!)

Maintenance Modifications

  • Grain Additions: Use 2 slices of Ezekiel toast or 6 oz of sweet potato toast.
  • Protein Additions: Increase nut butter, add nuts or seeds, or supplement with a serving of plant-based milk as an unsweetened latte. πŸ™‚ (this is my new habit right now for getting my other maintenance protein)
  • Fat Additions: Increase nuts or nut butter, add coconut flakes, or brush sweet potato generously with coconut oil before baking.

Directions

  1. If using Ezekiel bread as your grain, I think you can probably figure out what to do. Toast, top, and enjoy.

  2. If using sweet potato “toast”, bake sweet potato rounds at 400 degrees on parchment paper for 25-30 minutes. Brush with a small amount of coconut oil (optional) and sprinkle with cinnamon before baking. Top and enjoy.
