A Day of New Eats

by HEAB on February 1, 2011

I have a goal today – to try a new recipe for every meal. I’ve been eating the same things over and over, and I think my body is ready for something different, staring with breakfast…


Onion chia pan bread with a chopped turkey burger and crumbled goat cheese.

The pan bread, based on this recipe, was really easy. I ground up 2 TBSP of chia seeds and then blended them with 2 TBSP almond flour and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder in my Magic Bullet. I then poured the mixture into a bowl and blended 1 whole egg and 1/2 a chopped small onion in the Bullet. I stirred the egg + onion in with the almond flour and chia seeds. After adding salt, pepper, and a pinch of dried basil, I poured the batter into a greased skillet over medium high heat, flipping after a couple of minutes. I removed the bread from the skillet, sauteed my turkey burger, and threw it on top of the bread with a little cheese. This was delicious and a nice change from my typical bowl of sweet oatmeal. According to the recipe for the bread, you can use any type of flour – you don’t need almond flour. Also, whenever I make a recipe containing eggs, I get asked if any sort of egg substitute is possible. I don’t think it is in this recipe as the “bread” wouldn’t really set without it.

Have you tried anything new for breakfast lately?
