Breakfast for a Well Nourished Mama

Farm raised eggs, scrambled in real butter with lacto-fermented salsa, topped with real cheddar cheese, served on a sprouted wheat tortilla.

Let's dissect the nourishing breakfast and see just why it is so healthy!

First, let's start with the eggs. Store bought eggs are just plain awful for you. They come from chickens who eat pesticide laden grains and are given hormones and kept in cages. Not at all the way God intended it! Research your eggs! This link from Stephanie will get you started. Grass-fed, organic and hormone free eggs are extremely easy to find in most places and are quite reasonably priced for the high protein you get. We raise our own chickens for eggs, but a local farm around us sells them for around $2.00 a dozen. Considering the protein potential,this is cheap!

I won't go too much into this, but you even need to consider what you are cooking your food in! We have banished all Teflon from our home and only use cast iron, stainless steel and glass at this time. I think even more important than Teflon being banished is getting rid of all aluminum cookware.

I keep my sprouted grain tortillas in the freezer with wax paper in between them so they don't stick together. I then place them on top of the splatter guard to thaw/warm them while the eggs are cooking. You can find these tortillas at a health food store or you can make your own. I bought these.

Let's recap this short lesson. There is so much more I could write about, but let's keep them simple and short.

**Use only high quality grass-fed, hormone free eggs whenever possible.

**Do not cook with Teflon or aluminum.

In future posts I hope to share my lacto-fermented salsa recipe and what lacto-fermentation is. Also, the importance of sprouted or soaked grains, raw milk/cheese and real butter. Phew, all from one nourishing breakfast. Stay tuned.

Funny that you should be talking about breakfast today! I just tried your soaked oatmeal recipe...YUMMY! I never knew oatmeal could taste sooooo good! I just did the "taste test" and had to come tell you my thoughts. Really, I didn't expect it to turn out so wonderfully well. I suppose I should have had more faith. :) I am about to feed it to my family...right now. Thanks for sharing good eating tips and links to "more info"...what a blessing. I will pray for you today.
In Him,

Update: They all loved it! I also posted a link to your post on my blog:
Hope that's OK...let me know if you don't want that to be done.

There reallu is nothing like your own eggs! My hens should start laying maybe the end of the month or so. Meanwhile, we go down the road a few miles and get them for $2 a doz. LOTS more $$$ than the grocers, but there is NO comparison!
