Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of ground turkey (beef, sausage, or chicken works too)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp or so of Kirkland Organic No-Salt Spice Blend (or any other spices/herbs you wish to include- it’s your breakfast!)
  • half an onion, chopped
  • One clove of garlic, chopped
  • Chopped up veggies: Any kind of veggies you want to include. I included mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, peppers. You can also throw in zucchini or other kinds of squash.
Instructions
  1. Start by melting the coconut oil over low heat.
  2. Throw in the garlic and onions. Let sauté for a couple of minutes and then throw in the turkey and veggies.
  3. Use a spatula to cut up the turkey and mix everything and then throw in some spices. You can put a lid on it if you wish as it will steam it and cook faster. Serve. Leftovers will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.

I think one of the hardest obstacles for people to get over when eating grain-free is breakfast meals.  I so often get the question, “so what do you eat for breakfast?”  Usually the typical Western Diet breakfast is some sort of grain, some fruit, and maybe some dairy, ie a huge carb load! Ever wonder why you are hungry less than two hours later?  Just as with lunch and dinner, you need some good protein and preferably some veggies for breakfast.  Veggies for breakfast??!! Yes! You will get used to it and it is great!

The great thing about this recipe is that you will have leftovers for your breakfast for the next couple of days.  Just heat  up in the microwave.  It is also pretty quick to make when you are in a hurry in the morning, which happens to me a lot!

Gather Up:

  • 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of ground turkey (beef, sausage, or chicken works too)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp or so of Kirkland Organic No-Salt Spice Blend (or any other spices/herbs you wish to include- it’s your breakfast!)
  • half an onion, chopped
  • one clove of garlic, chopped
  • Chopped up veggies: Any kind of veggies you want to include.  For today, I included mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, peppers. You can also throw in zucchini or other kinds of squash.

Start by melting the coconut oil over low heat.  Throw in the garlic and onions. Let sauté for a couple of minutes and then throw in the turkey and veggies. Use a spatula to cut up the turkey and mix everything and then throw in some spices.  You can put a lid on it if you wish as it will steam it and cook  faster.  Once turkey is cooked through, dish up! If you are just dishing this up for yourself, save the rest for the next couple of days for breakfast.  Yummy and filling!
