Breakfast isn’t complete without some protein! Lately I’ve been really into breakfast sandwiches, so the thought of giving up bread for this sugar detox made me sad. I tried to think of what I could use as the base for my egg sandwiches. Eggplant and zucchini didn’t sound too good to me… But then I found THIS at Whole Foods over the weekend!
Whaaaaat?? Bread made of coconut and almonds? With only 60 calories per slice, 5 g fiber, and 7 g protein? It sounded too good to be true. To be honest, I was nervous about how the taste and texture would be. The price tag ($10.99 for 16 slices) made this purchase a gamble.
Luckily, I’m not at all disappointed! This bread is soft, dense, and barely different in flavor from the sunflower bread I usually use.
Here’s how to make my 5 minute breakfast sandwich:
1. Place 1 slice of paleo bread topped with 1 slice pepper jack cheese in the toaster oven.
1. While the bread is toasting, scramble 1 egg or 1/4 cup egg whites in a nonstick pan. On the same pan, sizzle some turkey breast or ham until golden. You could add some spinach, tomato, or onions at this point, but I don’t like my breakfast sandwiches to taste too healthy ;)
3. Your bread should be done at about the same time as the egg and meat (and veggies). Take the bread out of the toaster and top the bubbly cheese with everything on the pan.
4. If you like things hot, add a few drops of hot sauce… Or sriracha. I was a little broken hearted to see that the second ingredient in sriracha is sugar.. So don’t use this if you’re strictly sugar detoxing :( Otherwise, sriracha is amazing on everything!
Enjoy this sandwich hot and gooey with my basic green juice on the side!
