Scrambled eggs, braised greens, breakfast sausage, avocado, tomato, and/or olives. Sounds pretty tasty don’t you think? Well lucky for me this is a typical weekday breakfast in our household. A complete satiating meal. I made the switch to eating a protein dense breakfast six months ago and I haven’t stopped since. I never fully embraced the concept “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” until I made this change. It’s awesome. No blood sugar highs to leave me feeling low and needing something an hour or so after eating. Now I’m full of energy, sustained energy, to carry me all the way until lunch hour. I suggest you try this style of breakfast out if you have not already. Trust me.
On the weekend we change it up a bit. Normally sautéed onion & zucchini, scrambled eggs, lox, and tomato. Still a protein dense meal. We throw bacon in to the mix on the occasion too. But this weekend past weekend I went for something new. Celeriac hash. I love celeriac and celeriac with bacon, well that should speak for itself. This was the perfect substitution to potatoes, white or sweet. I topped my hash with a slightly runny egg and added some endive into the mix. A perfect start to the weekend!
Celeriac Hash (serves 2)
- 1 large celeriac, peeled and diced into 1/4″ pieces
- 4 pieces bacon, I use sugar free
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- eggs, 1 or 2 per person
- Cook bacon over low heat, rendering out fat, until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel lined plate when done.
- Add onions and cook until lightly browned, 5 minutes.
- Stir in celeriac and smoked paprika. Continue to cook 10-15 minutes until celeriac is tender. Season with s&p. Crumble bacon and add to the mix. Remove from pan and divide into two dishes.
- Chop endive and add to bowl.
- Cook eggs in ghee, I prefer over medium, and place on top.
