If you’re doing a cleanse, you’re probably tired of eggs by now. I hear this all the time “I just can’t stomach another egg”. It’s true though, breakfast can be tricky if you’re used to muffins, oatmeal or fruit.
I normally switch up the way I cook my eggs so I get a little more variety OR I skip breakfast all together and fast until lunch. Really though, my pallet has changed so much that I can eat dinner leftovers at 8am and not blink an eye.
One of my favorite veggies on cleanse is carrot. They are so sweet when drizzled with avocado oil, cinnamon, and baked. Why not use them as an “oatmeal” base and top with nut butter and chia? It’s really a win win with the sweetness of the carrot and the consistency of an oatmeal. Plant based too! I’ll keep you posted on more meatless meals. Personally, I don’t think I’ll never be 100% plant based, but I do like to incorporate meatless meals into my diet. FYI, going meatless doesn’t mean you have to load yourself up with grains and legumes!
Carrots (baby or whole cut)
Salt to taste
Cinnamon to taste
1tbsp nut butter of your choice
1tsp chia seeds
** you could also top with hemp seeds, unsweetened coconut or add almond milk! Test it out and see what works for you.
Preheat oven to 425
Add carrots, oil, cinnamon and salt to a baking sheet.
Bake 25 minutes (or until soft)
Mash and then top with toppings! I also use this as a side to eggs and meat. I just love these carrots so much!
****i used leftover carrots from dinner last night so this breakfast took me under 5 min to make!!!
