I’ve recently made some beneficial changes to my eating habits (going paleo which I’ll write more about in another post, and eliminating gluten as much as possible from my diet). I’ve done so because I’m focusing on what I put into my body and in doing research I realize that eliminating gluten and grains may be helpful in boosting my thyroid function. One of the first meals I made was for breakfast based on a recipe I found online. I just modified it to make it fit into the paleo lifestyle.
This is a great breakfast option when you want something hearty that only takes minutes to make, or when you’re tired of eating cereal or yogurt or fruit for breakfast.
What You Need:
1 egg [I've made it with two eggs for more protein.]
1 1/2 tablespoons milk [I use unsweetened coconut milk]
Ground black pepper, garlic and other seasonings to taste
1/4 cup of almond meal [instead of using a bagel or piece of bread. It still gives the "quiche" body without an actual crust.]
2 teaspoons Greek yogurt
1/2 slice deli-sliced turkey breast or ham [you can also add diced green peppers or mushrooms too.]
Fresh chopped chives
Dijon mustard [I used spicy brown mustard.]
What To Do:
Beat egg and milk together with a fork in a coffee cup, adding pepper and seasonings to taste. Stir in almond meal. Stir in yogurt. Tear or cut turkey and/or veggies into small pieces; add to mixture. Sprinkle with chives. Microwave on high until done, about 1 minute 30 seconds. Garnish with mustard and fresh thyme, cilantro or more chives, and enjoy!
