|Egg Spinach with Oregano & Red Pepper recipe – Easy|
Good for Breakfast, lunch or dinner.
As you know Oregano and Red pepper are really good for us so I tried them in my eggs and really like it. Enjoy!
1 - 2 eggs
1 - 2 cups of fresh spinach
2 tbsp Coconut oil (or 1 tbsp Olive oil & 1 tbsp butter)
¼ cup onions – chopped
1 clove - chopped
Dash of Oregano
Dash of Red Pepper
2 tsp Plain Yogurt (optional)
Dash of Salt and pepper (optional)
1.Remove stems then wash & drain fresh spinach.
2.Chop onion and set aside
3.Chop garlic and set aside
4.Add coconut oil to pan on medium heat and let it melt to cover the pan. Use spatula to spread evenly. See note below *
5.Add chopped onions to pan and cook until they become translucent – about 1 or 2 minutes.
6.Add chopped garlic to pan and cook for 30 seconds.
7.Add spinach and cook until soft about 1 minute.
8.Move these ingredients to one side of the pan. 9.Crack 1 or 2 eggs into the other side of pan.
10.Sprinkle Oregano and Red Pepper on eggs and spinach mixture.
11.Cook eggs until the whites have completely set – whites are solid and not runny so about 2 minutes.
12.Turn eggs over and let cook other side for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Do not cook over 1 minute or eggs may be over done.
13.Remove eggs and spinach mixture from pan to plate.
14.Spoon a few dabs of yogurt on top.
15.Add dash of salt and pepper if you like.
*Olive oil and butter can replace coconut oil for a richer flavor.
Be sure to cook olive oil on medium to low heat since will go bad at high heat.
Also, it is suggested to remove dairy (that means butter & yogurt) from your diet until your recovery has advanced so be aware as you add things back in.
I use Ghee butter to reduce lactose issues. Mel and Peter rave about Kerry or Carey butter. I think they said they get it at Trader Joes.

1 tbs coconut flour

2 tablespoons water or coconut milk coconut oil
Mix the coconut flour and baking powder with the water (or milk) and egg whites. Whisk or blend until all lumps disappear (I usually mix, then wait a couple of minutes and mix again). Pour all the batter on a heated pan greased with coconut oil (grease well). Pour batter in center of pan. Tilt the pan around to spread the batter into a large circle, almost covering the entire bottom of the pan. Be very careful with this part: wait until the edges are brown on the side of the tortilla, or carefully circle spatula around the bottom of tortilla until safe to flip. Once safe, flip the tortilla and cook for about 30 seconds on the other side.

1/2 tbs baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
Sprout 1 cup of quinoa overnight in a bowl (cover quinoa seeds with water, in the morning drain water little sprouts should be emerging)
In food processor blend quinoa until a wet batter is formed, 3-5 minutes. Add other wet ingredients and process until blended. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add dry mix to batter and mix well.
Heat a skillet with coconut oil and add ¼ cup of the batter to it, allow pancakes to cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
1 organic chicken breast precooked (season as desired while boiling)
Using a food processor, blend ingredients together smooth. Mixture will look just like thick pancake batter.
Use 1/4 cup of the mixture and cook in hot greased skillet like a pancake. Batter may need to be spread out a bit so that it is not too thick.
These cook much faster than nut flour pancakes. Watch them closely.
