I have decided to try a grain free diet again. Last time my percentage of fat was high compared to my carbohydrates and proteins. I didn't function well. I was super tired all the time, and though people said to keep going, I was a wimp and gave up. This time I am eating a lot more fruits and vegetables to increase my carbohydrates and hopefully I will be able to stick with it. So far, I feel fine, no fatigue.
This recipe is my substitute for my beloved oatmeal. I was eating oatmeal twice a day and it was the last grain I was holding onto. I wanted something I could make with one dish, something that was fast, and something that required little more than heat and serve.
I really like this breakfast. It's warm and comforting and taste wonderful. You could add stevia or honey, if it's not sweet enough for you, but I think it's fine without.
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 tsp fat of choice-I recommend coconut oil, coconut cream concentrate or peanut butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp raisins
2 Tbsp nuts, chopped
Stir first 5 ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat on medium until warm. Top with nuts and raisins.
