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!)
Each Serving Contains:
- 1 Grain Serving
- 1 Protein Serving
- 1 Fruit Serving
Choose ONE of the following options for the “toast”
1 slice Ezekiel Bread (flourless) (1 grain serving)
- 4 oz roasted sweet potato “toast” – 2 rounds about the size of a rice cake (1 grain serving)
- 2 oz nut butter (try almond, peanut, cashew, or sunflower butter)
- 6 oz sliced banana, apple, or berries
Condiments & Spices
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
- 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. 🙂 (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.
If using Ezekiel bread as your grain, I think you can probably figure out what to do. Toast, top, and enjoy.
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.
