Ramen Inspired and Breakfast

I wanted some ramen but we didn’t have all the ingredients. I will definitely be remaking this next week with meat and pickled veggies!

I made a super delicious and quick broth using water, kombu, bonito flakes, soy sauce, coconut aminos, sea salt, rice vinegar, chili paste and fish sauce! It took less than 30 minutes to make and it was so flavorful! I added some millet and brown rice ramen noodles and a couple boiled eggs that I marinated in soy sauce and coconut aminos.

Leftovers for breakfast! We had some leftover pasta (brown rice pasta in a roasted tomato sauce with onions, garlic and jalapeño), so I added eggs, brown rice flour and flax seeds and cooked it in some extra virgin olive oil!

Breakfasts, Lunches and Snack!

Eggs, chicken sausage and greens tossed with sea salt, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.

Veg sushi with some leftover chopped bell pepper, rice, avocado with sea salt and lemon and a miso sauce made with soy, fish sauce, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, chili paste, coconut sugar, garlic and chickpea miso! This was pretty yum…

Leftover blueberries and orange with orange Coconut Cult yogurt and walnuts!

Green smoothie made with water, banana, greens, frozen mango, lemon juice, flax seeds, hemp seeds, collagen and sea salt.

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Chips

I soaked chopped sweet potatoes in cold salted water for over an hour. I drained the potatoes and dried them in the spinner to remove the water. I coated them extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil and sea salt. I baked them at 400 until golden and crispy, stirring halfway though. I let them cool and crisp up on the pan and then I served them with a chipotle aioli!

Banana Bread Layered with Chocolate Granola!!

I made banana bread with flour, baking powder, sea salt, banana, egg, maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon juice and zest. I layered and topped the bread with chocolate granola made using oats, flax seeds, butter, maple syrup, cacao powder, sea salt and vanilla.

I topped this with melted chocolate and ice cream for my dad’s birthday!! It was delicious!!!

Asian inspired chicken wings, veggies and rice noodles. I used ginger, garlic, olive oil, peanut oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, coconut aminos, fish sauce, soy sauce and chili to flavor this dish. I cooked the rice noodles according to the directions and then rinsed them in cold water to stop the cooking and lightly coated them in olive oil with sea salt before adding them to the veggies.

Latkes made with shredded potatoes and onion, egg, flour, sea salt and pepper. I cooked them in plenty of avocado oil and topped them with flaky sea salt. So delicious!! I was going to serve these with some whipped goat cheese and micro greens , but we had groceries delivered and they brought the wrong kind of cheese and forgot the micro greens. These were still delicious!

Challah!!! I made these for a candied pecan and maple cream cheese French toast- which was fantastic! Except my stand mixer broke while I was making them and I had to knead them by hand! Oh my goodness, I haven’t done that in forever. Thankfully they still turned out yum!
