It’s been a rough couple weeks here. My 18 month old is going through the 18 month sleep regression. It’s not as crazy making as the 4, and 9 month sleep regressions, but after a while the sleep deprivation gets to you. So I’m super slow in rolling out some recipes. Plus, it’s real hard to come up with new recipes when your eyeballs are being held open with toothpicks and you’re mainlining coffee. You Moms out there know what I’m talking about. I was hesitant about posting my Nightshade Free Breakfast Sausage because it originally started out as Gutsy by Nature’s Autoimmune Sausage but I’ve changed it enough over time that I thought I should share it.
I’ve upped my exercise lately and I felt like I needed a little more protein to get me through the day. I started doing more core work to recover from diastasis recti (both my boys were big, and I’m pretty small) and walking. I don’t do a lot of walking, I prefer my stationary bike and weights, but I’m going to participate in Care Net Peninsula’s Walk for Life, so I thought I should prepare a little. If you want to sponsor me and help me support Moms and babies you can do so.
Back to the sausage. My boys both love this, so it’s toddler and pre-schooler approved. I eat this 3 times a week, so it’s been thoroughly tested. My Nightshade Free Breakfast Sausage will make a great addition to your breakfast menu so that if, like me, you have trouble finding things that you want to eat for breakfast you’ve got a little variety. As tempting as it is, you don’t want to eat the same thing all the time. That’s just asking to develop a sensitivity to your favorite foods.
- 1 lb. ground pork
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground sage
- 1 tsp. rosemary
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 3/4 tsp. ground turmeric
- couple sprinkles black pepper*
Mix everything together. Let it season overnight if you can. Make six patties, and pan fry them in a little (refined) coconut oil, avocado oil or butter. If you need a freezer option, make the patties, freeze them in between a couple layers of wax paper. Pull them out, allow them to thaw and fry them up when you need them. If you try these, let me know what you think!
*If you’ve successfully reintroduced black pepper.
