Grain free breakfast (B.E.D compliant)

Grain free breakfast 8

In my quest of learning Paleo dishes, I had bought several book written by various authors. In the lot there was a book called Amazing Paleo Diet recipes designed for kids, written by Shae Harper, which is my favorite. It has simple and doable recipes, which I like for my kid. He loves it when food is served in style but also loves Indian flavors!! Hence, I had to tweak the recipes a little bit, but believe me, they taste really yumm…

Here is an adaptation of the paleo casserole with my kid’s taste in mind……another variation of grain free, egg and veggies breakfast, served with a green smoothie. Although it uses a little bit of coconut milk and almond meal, I call it a BED compliant meal because the amounts of other proteins is way too less than the egg.

The Casserole

Ingredients

Eggs – 3 large

Coconut milk – 3 tbsp

Almond meal – 1 tbsp

Salt – to taste

Pepper – to taste

Dill leaves (dried) – 1 tbsp (optional; you can use finely chopped Coriander leaves instead)

Peeled and crushed garlic – 1 tsp

Peeled and minced Ginger – 1 tsp

Chopped vegetables of choice – 6 cups

Coconut Oil – 1 tbsp + for greasing the ramekins

Method

  • Beat eggs in a bowl, add coconut milk, almond meal, salt, pepper and dill leaves. Beat thoroughly and keep aside.

  • release the edges with the help of a sharp knife and flip over the serving plate.

The Green smoothie

Ingredients for 1 serving

Cucumber – 1 medium (peeled and chopped)

Baby spinach – 7-8 leaves (you can use any other leafy veggie too)

Celery – 2-3, 2″ sticks chopped

Mint leaves – 2 sprigs (leaves removed)

Apple Cider vinegar – 1 tsp

Sea salt – as per taste

Water – 1/2 cup

Method

  •  Place everything in a high speed blender and blend till smooth.
  • Serve with your favorite egg and veggie breakfast!!

You can also use a tomato in your smoothie and omit the apple cider vinegar, but I try to limit tomato, as it causes hyper acidity in my kiddo.
