Zucchini Breakfast Waffles

I have to thank my friend Vanessa for sharing this wonderful recipe with me. Until this entered my world, my breakfast had been limited to oatmeal, my spinach feta cheese omelette and a few other pancake recipes.

Zucchini breakfast waffles are clean eating, delicious and healthy. They are also a grain-free, sugar-free and gluten-free alternative to traditional waffles. I’m sure if you didn’t have a waffle maker that you could use this recipe to make zucchini pancakes and it would out turn out just as good.

We start by combining grated zucchini with eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil. Then we add coconut and almond flour, along with “pumpkin pie” spices( cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger) for a nice, thick consistency.

Scoop mixture onto the waffle iron, bake until done…Voila!

Tip: Make this ahead of time the day before and refrigerate or freeze them. Pop them into the toaster and eat them as is or top with raw organic honey, coconut oil, maple syrup or your favorite sugar-free jam.

Coconut Banana Kale Smoothie – No Protein Powder Required

I love smoothies. I have them for breakfast, as snack or with my dinner, depending on my mood. I’m always experimenting with different fruits, veggies and other ingredients to get the best flavor and the healthiest option possible.

I’ve recently gotten into green smoothies by adding kale, spinach, swiss chard and even avocados to some of my smoothies. Raw greens – especially kale – can have a sharp, bitter taste initially so I usually try and add a natural sweetner ( such as fruit) to offset that bitter taste.

I came up with a combo recently while we were snowed in that I just love! Four ingredients, dairy-free and an excellent source of protein via kale –  no protein powder required! So without further ado, one Coconut Banana Kale Smoothie coming right up( is your mouth watering yet?)
