Collard Green Breakfast Burrito

Image=Serves 2=

Ingredients~

6 Collard Green Leaves

4 Slices Bacon (Chopped up)

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup Leeks (Chopped up)

1/2 Cup Quinoa (Cooked)

Coconut Oil (For cooking)

Directions~

Prepare the collard green leaves by washing them and cutting the stem in half and as flat as possible.  Then bring a pan of water to a temperature right under boiling and dip the leaves into it until they get a little more tender

Prepare the burrito scramble by cooking the bacon, then adding in the other ingredients and cook until mixed and hot

Assemble the collard wraps by lining 2 next to each other (facing the opposite direction of each other) and put some of the scramble into the middle.  Then roll the wrap up by folding in the sides and tucking in at the same time. (Its hard and takes practice to get a nice wrap)

Complete the other two wraps

Enjoy!!

1/3 Cup Coconut Flour

6 Eggs

1/4 Cup Coconut Milk

1 TSP Cinnamon

Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until blended.

—Adding fruit into the batter won’t work because the fruits are too heavy

Strawberry Applesauce Omelette

**I tried this with blueberries too but I liked the strawberries better**

=Makes 1 Pancake=

Ingredients~

3 Large Eggs [I only used one egg for a mini one]

2 Tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce

2-3 Fresh Strawberries (chopped)

Cinnamon (however much you desire to put in)

Vanilla (just a splash of it, enough to add some flavor)

Directions~

Heat up a skillet on medium heat.  When hot, add Ghee or coconut oil to coat the pan so the omelet does not stick.

Beat up the eggs and then add in the vanilla and cinnamon.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet.  Cook until most of it is cooked and then flip.

Spread the applesauce and chopped strawberries onto half of the omelet.

Fold it in half and slide onto a plate.
