Sprouted Seed Avocado Toast
I love simple meals made of real food, this includes toast. Finding something gluten-free (not to mention grain-free) that is also “healthy” has been tough. If you are reading this you probably already know that gluten-free doesn’t necessarily mean its good for you. Fillers, sugar, possible arsenic from rice flour, misc chemicals, and many other things are all concerns.
Food for Life Sprouted 3 Seed Bread is the best I’ve found and it tastes fantastic! When you sprout and/or soak certain foods it helps to break them down, which in turn makes them much easier to digest and assimilate.
This bread is gluten-free and technically grain-free (quinoa and millet are officially seeds but cook up and act more like a grain). Arrowroot is the first “flour” on the ingredient list which I am a big fan of. Click here to learn more about this tasty bread option.
For breakfast this day I wanted to get a little creative and experiment a bit. I toasted up a slice and in this order applied:
- grass-fed butter to taste
- 1 pastured egg from our chickens
- sea salt & black pepper
- half an avocado
- small handful broccoli sprouts
- dash of fermented green chile sauce (McCauley Family Farm)
I chased it down with my favorite coffee mix of Bulletproof black coffee, collagen protein & prebiotic fiber powder, brain octain oil, and a dash of Ceylon cinnamon. It makes for a nice light breakfast that gets in your macro-nutrients (fats, carbohydrates, protein) and a good start to your daily fiber/plant intake.
Broccoli sprouts have been shown to be a potent cancer-fighting food
Egg Sandwich With Black Beans
Another great version of sprouted toast I enjoy is a good ole egg sandwich! Using the same bread as in the above recipe, I toasted it then spread some Primal Kitchen avocado mayo on top letting in melt down. Click the link for 10% off all Primal Kitchen products! At the same time I quickly cooked up two pastured eggs from our chickens in grass-fed butter, salt/pepper which I put on top next. To finish it off some broccoli sprouts always hit the spot (#cancerprevention).
As a side I warmed up some leftover black beans with salt/pepper from the same pan. Beans, when soaked properly, can really make for an excellent addition to breakfast. Its important to soak and cook them right to break down the phytates which can bind to important minerals and impair their absorption. They also contain antioxidants, fiber, support healthy blood sugar levels, are high in protein and contain essential vitamins and minerals, etc.
1 slice GF sprouted seed bread
1 tbsp Primal Kitchen avocado mayo
2 pastured eggs cooked in grass-fed butter
big pinch of broccoli sprouts
2 tbsp soaked and cooked black beans
salt & pepper to taste
Soak your beans for at least 8hrs before cooking to get the benefits mentioned above, as well as much better digestion and less cooking time
