Breakfast is a big issue for us with the diet. I seriously need toast or biscuits with jelly every morning. I just can’t let myself think about it. My typical breakfast for too many years has been toast or biscuits with jelly and an ice cold Dr. Pepper. Yum!
We’re actually not being 100% “paleo” but we’re probably being about 95% “paleo” so, make your own food choices and don’t do what we’re doing necessarily.
What we have been having is a lot of scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage. I put peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes . . in omelettes and we have those with ham, bacon or sausage.
This afternoon, I’m going to make several different types of paleo gluten free muffins and freeze them individually. I will take several of them out of the freezer each night and we can have those in the morning, with butter, fruit and nuts and bacon or sausage.
Saturday morning, I made Pumpkin Pancakes. They were interesting . . as in different from what we normally eat. I doubt you find them at iHop but we’ll eat them again.
We had them with a few banana slices, a splash of maple syrup (about 1/4 of my usual amount of maple syrup) and bacon. Vince said he would eat them again so that’s a good thing.
What I loved about them is that the recipe made just enough for the two of us. The recipe said to make them small because they don’t flip well . . they’re more egg than flour . . so I made them small and they were easy enough to flip. We ate them around 7 a.m. and didn’t get to eat lunch til after 2 p.m. and though we were starving by 2, the breakfast would have been good til noon.
Since the pancakes only used 1/4 cup of pumpkin, one can is enough for 7 batches of pancakes. I just dumped 1/4 cup into zipper bags, put all of those into one large freezer bag and will pull out a small bag as needed.
