Breakfast

We love eggs! Plus other delicious options.

Vanilla Avocado Pudding

We were stoked to receive 15 Bacon avocados in our farm basket last week. Bacon avocados are lighter in color and flavor than Hass avocados, and they have a higher water content. We like them for sweet recipes as they have less of a traditional “avocado” flavor but the same […]

 

Paleo Banana Bread

With only 8 ingredients, this recipe delivers a naturally sweetened bread without grains, dairy, or sugar. Mix up the batter in less than 5 minutes, then sit back and wait for about an hour while it bakes in the oven (and fills your kitchen with the amazing aroma of cinnamon […]

 

Strawberry-Rhubarb Chia Vegan Parfait

This was our Mother’s Day dessert; my husband prepared it and I honestly had a hard time believing that it was sugar-free! The original recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” does include honey, but my husband used date paste instead. This parfait would also make a filling breakfast, […]

 

Fresh Artichoke Frittata

Last week we brought home a few pounds of beautiful baby purple artichokes in our local farm box. We quickly steamed up a few and served them with a simple and delicious melted vegan butter and fresh lemon juice mix that our neighbor recommended. After, we still had more than […]

 

Black Bottom Banana Bread

I’m not going to lie; every few weeks we intentionally allow a few bananas on our counter to over-ripen, just so we can bake this bread. The original recipe comes from the Whole Life Challenge, and while it’s great as-is. I wanted to make a vegan version. To make this […]

 

Carrot “Cake” Bites

During the Whole Life Challenge, we like to find recipes that address our sweet tooth without needing to add sugar. We discovered these Carrot “Cake” Bites from The Paleo Mom, which we made even healthier and vegan by using a secret ingredient to replace the unsalted butter in the original […]

 

Spicy Kuku Sabzi

Kuku Sabzi is a Persian-inspired herb and egg frittata; it’s a spring-time dish that’s typically served to celebrate the Persian new year. We adapted this from a Jamie Geller recipe, and definitely added our own low-FODMAP spin. The recipe offers flexibility and variety in the herbs you can incorporate. We […]

 

Moist “Free” Mango Bread

Mangoes naturally sweetness make it easy to prepare a sugar-free breakfast bread or afternoon snack. We adapted this from a wheat-free Moist Mango Bread recipe from Preheat To 350° and based on our experience, we’re definitely going to try more of her recipes! This dairy-free loaf was perfect when paired […]

 

Simple Avocado Toast

It really doesn’t get any more beautiful than this – fresh avocado, warm crusty bread, olive oil, kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. We love Udi’s Millet-Chia bread, but really, any two slices of your favorite toast will do. This is a great building block for so many delicious […]

 

City French Omelet

While we’ve never been to Paris, we do love a good egg casserole for breakfast, and this one will kick off your day in style. Savory bacon, potato, and green onions pair beautifully with creamy and rich eggs in this hearty omelet. This recipe is adapted from Ina Garten’s Country […]
