It seems like I haven’t posted on here in forever! Moving took a lot more time and energy than I thought it would, but I suppose that’s expected when you can hardly pick up anything! I did manage to put things away while the boys did the heavy lifting, so I guess that’s kind of a win-win.
We are also getting super close to meeting baby Ski! Like he could really make his appearance any day now kind of close! I must admit, we really did not eat the healthiest the last 2 weeks between trying to move and unpack all of the baby items so we’re ready to go for him.
That being said, I have managed to throw together some really super easy paleo-friendly recipes, including a ton of breakfast food (which I could eat every meal of the day) I will be posting them all week!
Mango Chia Protein Pudding
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1.5 cup unsweetened almond milk
5 Tablespoons chia seeds
- Mix together the protein powder and almond milk in a sealable container. I used 2 smaller mason jars and split ingredients in half.
- Add chia seeds to containers and shake to combine.
- Let sit in fridge for about 30 minutes, shake once again, then leave in fridge overnight or for about 6 hours.
- When ready to serve, layer pudding mixture in bowl with mango chunks.
Green Apple Spinach Shake
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
2-3 fresh ginger shavings
2 handful kale
2 handfuls spinach
1 green apple
handful of ice
- Peel and slice cucumber and dice up green apple.
- Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. It works best in most blenders to add the liquids first.
Squash, Sweet Potato, and Sausage Hash
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 small butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 pound ground breakfast sausage
2 medium green apples, peeled and diced
Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the coconut oil.
- Saute the sweet potatoes, squash and onion, stirring frequently, until the potatoes and squash just begin to soften and the onion is translucent but not browned.
- Add the sausage and apples and continue to stir and cook until the sausage has browned. As you cook, break up the larger pieces of sausage.
- Season with salt and pepper, stir to incorporate. Serve alone, or with eggs on top.
Spiralized Sweet Potato Hash
4 slices of bacon, diced
1 small diced jalapeno pepper
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 large sweet potatoes, spiralized
1 lb breakfast sausage
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper, to taste
- Place a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add diced bacon to the pan and cook until the bacon begins to brown.
- Once bacon is half way cooked, add the diced jalapeno pepper, yellow onion, and sweet potato spirals. Mix together then cover to help steam the sweet potato and cook it quicker.
- In a medium pan, cook breakfast sausage over medium-high heat.
- After about 6-8 minutes of cooking, add in the breakfast sausage along with the garlic powder, paprika, and salt and pepper to the potato mixture.
- Once everything is cooked through, use a spoon to press four spots into your hash mixture, crack an egg into each spot, then add about a tablespoon of water to the pan and cover to help steam the eggs.
- Let steam until eggs are cooked to preference.
