I am starting the Whole30 program today. I am definitely excited more than anything but to look back on my eating habits, it's scary to realize how far I have come and how much I have changed as a person, even, and now to completely cut out added sugars and yogurt (oh, my precious yogurt!) is something I never thought would be possible. Added honey and baked almond/coconut flour desserts were a staple of my diet throughout the first year I was on scd. I used them as a crutch because my mind wasn't disciplined enough to completely eliminate these things. So it was either eat an almond flour cookie and be okay or an entire bag of M&M's and be super sick. I chose the cookie with no regrets. Those foods have their place, I agree, but after two years I really feel that it's unnecessary for me to eat those paleo sweet treats on any kind of a regular basis. Not to completely eliminate all desserts for forever, and honestly those are the most popular recipes on the blog, so of course I will continue to make them, but I honestly rarely pull the ol' bakeware out of my kitchen cabinets just to have something to eat. I feel like committing to the Whole30 will only further mature my views on food and it's role in my life. Food is fuel, not a friend.
With that being said, these breakfast grits are my new fav. I may just eat this every morning for the next month...or year, whatever. It's really only three ingredients cooked in one pan with some spices. Easy-peasy. I hope you love it.
1 package bacon, cut width-wise into thin strips
1 large head cauliflower, riced (to be more "grits-like" rice for just a few seconds longer for smaller pieces)
5 eggs, scrambled in a bowl
black pepper, dill, salt to taste
Fry bacon until crisp over medium-high heat. Push crisped bacon to one side of pan, add eggs, and scramble quickly (click for pic).* Add cauliflower rice, stir/fold in with eggs and bacon, cover with a lid, and let cook for about 6 minutes, stirring to ensure all of the cauliflower gets cooked. Add spices to taste and enjoy!
*(If the amount of bacon grease in the pan frightens you, discard some of the grease- but not all - before adding the eggs and then continue with the recipe.)
