I love breakfast. It’s probably my favorite meal of the day. A lot of times my husband ends up making breakfast but occasionally he will let me make breakfast too. 🙂 I love trying new ways to incorporate vegetables in to my day. For breakfast I shredded some zucchini the day before and used some salsa I had made earlier in the week as well to top it off. But any salsa will do!
Drop a little fat into the pan, let it melt and add in the zucchini. Let it get soft, add dried onion flakes and cook for about 2-4 minutes on a low heat. Set aside once it is cooked. Add in an egg or two to fry. Cover with a lid for about 2 minutes on low heat. Add salt and serve over zucchini. Top with salsa and enjoy!
I’m into having food available in the fridge ahead of time for the week. Mondays tend to be my food prep days and I try to do meal planning for dinners early in the month, for the whole month. Dinners … Continue reading →
I’m in a baking mood! And we keep ending up with two sad bananas that don’t get eaten before they are too ripe for my taste buds. Dry ingredients – 1 1/4 cup gluten free flour 1/2 cup cocoa powder … Continue reading →
2-3 chicken breasts, sliced thinly
1 can of full fat coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut oil (one for the chicken and one for the veggies to stir fry them)
2 Tbsp curry powder
2 tsp onion powder + a few shakes (meat cooking)
1 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic + a few shakes (veggie cooking)
1/2 tsp chili powder + a few shakes (meat cooking)
1/2 tsp ginger powder or fresh ginger
1/4 tsp chili flakes
Veggies of your choice, these seem to go well: (I tend to use 3-4)
Chopped sweet potato / yam / purple potato
1/4-1/2 chopped butternut squash
2 zucchini, chopped
1/2 yellow onion or 1/2 purple onion
2-4 carrots peeled & chopped
red or yellow pepper, thinly sliced and seeds removed
**A few other add-in options that top it off:
can of bamboo
If you like it more saucy/soup like, then I’d suggest adding a little chicken stock to make it more liquid-soup like.
Take half the coconut oil, sauté the veggies for about 8-10 minutes, add a few shakes of sea salt and a few shakes of garlic powder on medium-low and set aside. Take the other half of the fat and sauté the chicken for about 8-10 minutes on medium low. Throw in a few shakes of onion powder, chili powder and sea salt.
Add vegetables to the chicken. Add the coconut milk and turn temp down just a little. Add in the seasonings: curry, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, ginger, chili flakes. Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Test the taste for your liking…add in a few more pepper flakes for some heat or a little more salt or curry if it is lacking some pizzazz.

This is so good and pretty quick & easy once you have your potatoes cooked.
3-4 cooked sweet potatoes (I baked mine and then just took the peel off or you could peel, cut & roast them as an option)
3 celery stalks, chopped
1-2 carrots, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2-4 cups chicken stock (depending how liquid you like your soup)
1 Tbsp Onion powder
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
1 Tbsp butter/olive oil/coconut oil
Optional Add-ins to change the flavor:
Curry powder & Coconut milk
Red pepper & mustard powder
In a cast iron pot or regular pot add in oil, chopped vegetables and let cook for about 5-8 minutes until sautéed through. Add in the cooked sweet potatoes, and spices then using your spoon or kitchen utensil mash it up a bit so that it breaks apart from its whole form. Let cook for another 6-8 minutes. Add in chicken stock and stir for a minute or so. In batches, dump mixture into a blender and if you have a “soup” setting put it on soup if not let it blend up until it is mixed through. Once you have mixed all of your batches, either store in a few mason jars and freeze them once they have cooled or store in the fridge so it’s ready to eat.
Great additions after it’s cooked:
Grilled chicken, shredded chicken, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, chopped fresh basil, diced peppers
