I was given a copy of Awaken, 30+ Egg Free & Grain Free Breakfasts to review. It’s a smaller cookbook, but has some nice recipes in it with beautiful photography. She has some ideas for chia seeds, recipes for sausage using chicken or pork, and some smoothie recipes.
My favorite recipe from this cookbook was the cinnamon cereal. My daughter eats it like cereal with almond milk. I prefer to use it as a granola type of topping for my yogurt.

This recipe is for four servings.
My supervisor at work had a broken foot that didn’t heal properly. Her foot was so swollen she had to wear shoes that allowed the top of her foot to be open. She said that within 3 days of drinking turmeric tea the swelling was gone! Her recipe included honey, but I try to eat a low carb/ketogenic diet so I used a different sweetener in mine. She also used lemon juice. I use apple cider vinegar because that’s what I had available.
This does require stirring while drinking or the powders will settle to the bottom.
Place the turmeric, ginger, and pepper in a cup. Add hot water, cover and let sit for a few minutes. (I use my swell bottle for this) Then pour into a cup and add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and enjoy. Remember to stir as you drink to keep the powders suspended.

One of the biggest challenges when sticking to a diet is being prepared, especially if it’s a more restrictive diet. When eating low carb, or ketogenic, there is often not much available when you are out and about or at work, so I’m trying to make sure I bring food with me to work so that I’m not tempted to grab an “off plan” muffin or croissant… (I’m a breakfast server at a hotel)
Today was my first attempt at scotch eggs. There are lots of recipes on the internet, but basically it’s a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage, rolled in crumbs of some sort and then baked or fried. I used equal parts of coconut flour and Parmesan cheese for my crumbs.
Sounds simple enough right? Well, sausage “dough” is messy and sticks to your hands! So, after getting the sausage wrapped around my eggs, and a toss in my “crumbs” I gently put them into a pan of hot oil. See how pretty it turned out!
Well, until you turned it over…somehow I didn’t seal the sausage well enough, or needed a bit more sausage, and it separated away from the egg. Boo….
Despite the lack of coverage, these still taste pretty good, and I think they will work great to bring to work for my breakfast. Just drop in a baggie and go!
