The Three Bears Brekky

It is easy to get stuck in a toast rut sometimes, especially with a busy household of three busy bears with various food requirements. So I thought I would share a few of our favourite breakfast ideas that are (of course) free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar and quick and easy to prepare.

Savoury:

My ultimate breakfast fav consists of our Little Bare almond and seed loaf (https://littlebare.net/2015/07/26/almond-and-seed-loaf/), topped with sauerkraut, an egg or avocado and micro greens (pictured below)

Simple chicken (or other) bone broth – one of my favourite ways to start the day. I often start my day with a cup or two or hot broth, followed by a light brekky around 9.30/10am

Salmon, avocado, asparagus (or seasonal greens) and a simple dressing of olive oil and lemon juice

A dressed omelette (pictured below) – a simple omelette made with eggs, almond milk, salt, white pepper and olive oil, spread with a little homemade aioli and greens

Preservative free bacon and the usual trimmings – eggs, avocado, wilted spinach, kumara fritters and sauerkraut (just be aware that even preservative free bacon often contains brown sugar – we enjoy it occasionally as a treat). This is poppa bear’s pick

Pure sausages with normal cooked brekky accompaniments – consider having some made at your local butcher without all the usual nasties if you can’t find them ready made

Frittata made with leftover and whatever veggies you have on hand – a big batch can also be frozen and brought out the night before for a grab on the go option

Leftovers or meat and vege

Occasionally our baby bear enjoys buckwheat sourdough…his favourite spread is definitely almond butter

Veggie fritters. If we ate corn, corn fritters would definitely feature here

A platter of tid bits – something we often do for lunch…a small handful of interesting things like veggie sticks, some salmon, sauerkraut, avocado, a boiled egg, a few nuts…etc etc

Sweet

A green smoothie. Smoothies are obviously something you can’t generally say are ‘healthy’ or not – it really depends on what you put in them! As a rule, we only ever add as much fruit as we would normally eat for one serving, which is about a small handful. Yes, a small handful – and no extra sweetener. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, then using almond milk, coconut milk or coconut water can add natural sweetness without the extra fructose

Quick almond crepes (adding raw cacao for a choc hit is also nice) https://littlebare.net/2015/02/12/quick-almond-crepes/ topped with berries and plain coconut cream

Coconut yoghurt and seasonal fruit with a handful of nuts. Mmmm, walnuts and blueberries are one of my favourites

Banana or apple loaf
