EAT THIS! Start Fat Loss With a Delicious Breakfast…

Posted on October 3, 2010 by


A good solid breakfast – including protein and carbs – stokes your metabolism up first thing in the morning and sets the pace for your body the rest of the day.  If you really want to fire up your metabolism, have breakfast contain about 25% of your total calories for the day.  Then eat every 2.5-3 hours after that, regularly, all day long.  Eat more, drop more fat!  These recipes help make that fat-burning breakfast tasty as well.

Badmoon Pancakes


.5 apple

4 egg whites

2.5 tbsp flaxseed, ground

Description: Breakfast goodness.  These are tasty pancakes – make them silver dollar sized and pack in a baggie to carry along!

Instructions: Grate the apple. Beat egg whites, add apple and flax seed and cook as pancakes on a lightly oiled surface until browned on both sides.

Bettermilk Pancakes


.5 cup almond flour

1.5 tsp baking powder

.25 cup coconut flour

3 eggs

1 tbsp hempseed

.25 cup potato starch

1 tsp vanilla extract

Description: These are really close to classic buttermilk pancakes. Great for folks eating grain-free but craving comfort foods. Serve with fresh fruit, unsweetened preserves, raw coconut nectar, raw honey or real maple syrup…

Instructions: Combine all the dry ingredients. Use 4 TB prepared hemp milk OR combine 4 TBS hemp seed with 1 cup of water on high in the blender, then use 4 TB of that in the batter. Combine all the wet ingredients, and then add the wet to the dry – do not over-mix! Cook on pre-heated, lightly oiled skillet. Add water if you like them thinner, this recipe makes thick cakes. Makes 8-10 pancakes.

Protein Crepes


1 tsp cinnamon, ground

4 egg whites

1 serving protein powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

Description: Great for any meal.  Add any type of fresh fruit and nut butters to add flavor.

Instructions: Whip the egg whites until fluffy, add cinnamon and protein powder. Cook in preheated skillet.

Ground Turkey and Potato Hash


2 tbsp olive oil

1 lb ground turkey breast

4 medium red potatoes, diced into 1/2 inch cubes

.5 medium yellow onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 red bell pepper, diced

3 cups baby spinach

1 tbsp no salt seasoning

black pepper to taste

Description: A warm and comforting meal for breakfast.  Leftovers good anytime.  You can also substitute sweet potatoes for the red potatoes. Instructions: In a medium cast iron skillet (or non-stick pan, if you don’t have cast iron), saute the onion and garlic over medium-high heat until the onions begin to become translucent. Lower the heat to medium and add the potatoes, turkey, and no salt seasonings. Stir regularly to cook the meat thoroughly. When the meat is just cooked through, Turn the heat up to medium-high and continue cooking but don’t stir too often to allow the potatoes to brown and get crispy.  When the potatoes are nice and brown, add the red pepper and spinach. Cook until the red pepper is soft and the spinach is wilted.  Serves 4.

Turkey Sausage


.5 green bell pepper, chopped

1 egg

1 lb ground turkey

.5 cup onions, chopped

.25 cup parsley, fresh

Use any seasoning mix you like – Spice Hunter makes a wide range of seasoning mixes without salt. It’s in the spice aisle of most grocery stores. Herbally, sage, marjoram, basil are excellent, italian herbs are good, and tarragon is splendid!!

Mix it all together with your hands – adding any variety of sodium free seasonings.  Form into small 2 ounce balls (1 lb meat = 8 sausages = 2 ounces each) and flatten into patty sausage shape.  Cook on lightly greased skillet or non stick pan, about 5 minutes per side, flipping once.
