  • Toast:my vice

    So I've done pretty well going primal...cutting out grains and the majority of carbs, but I have one last vice...toast with my eggs.

    Sunny side up, over-easy, omelets, none of them feel right without that piece of toast accompanying them. So what are some better alternatives that could go along with eggs that are grain-free.

    Coconut flour pancakes.

      Seriously, homemade sausage rocks. And it can "soak up" the egg yolk too.


      (My recipes)

      Or if you do want to do the pancake route..

      These waffles are great and the batter works as pancakes too. Just cook them longer than you think you need to.

        Yep, meat. There's nothing quite like mopping up egg yolks with leftover thinly sliced steak; I always try to cook extra just for this purpose. Reheated veggies with lots of butter (like squash or cauliflower mash) are satisfying with eggs, too.

        FlyNavyWife, those sausage recipes look really good.

          My hubby has said the same thing and I think sausages are a great idea!!! Also just giving it time. He says (I just asked him lol) that he doesn't miss it as much any more.

            Thanks KC. They are really good, especially with the onions in them (as opposed to the onion powder).

              It's just habit.

              If you can force yourself to give it up for awhile, one day you will remember toast as some vague part of your life.

              I understand, whether it's toast or any other grain/carb.

              OTOH, if you have one small piece a day, there's your twenty percent, in a sense. Don't beat yourself up.

                What's the leanness percentage of the ground meat?

                  I used to love eggs with toast, too.

                  Have you read Mark's book? After learning how toxic grains our to our bodies, I simply just don't care for them anymore. I had eggs last night and remembered how I used to like toast with strawberry jam with my eggs....but now I get to eat bacon instead, which was something I didn't think I was "allowed" to eat thanks to CW.

                    Coconut Flour Bread

                    SassaFrass88's CF Bread:

                    COCONUT BREAD


                    3/4 cup coconut flour, 2 3/4 ounces or 80 grams

                    1 teaspoon baking powder

                    1/2 teaspoon salt

                    6 eggs

                    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted, 4 ounces (I used Palm Oil)

                    2 tablespoons granular Sweetener, honey, or other

                    Sift the first 3 ingredients into a small bowl; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients well. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth with no lumps. It will look a bit like cornbread batter. Spread in a greased 8x4" loaf pan and bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.

                    Makes 12 servings

                    Can be frozen

                      Eggs go much better with meat than bread

                      I usually fry up some eggs w/ ham and eat it with a fork, or wrap the egg up in the ham and eat THAT like a sandwich. Who needs toast?

                        Overlooking the carbs and fiber of grains, just absorb the lesson of how bad they are for you, especially wheat.

                        I ditched the grains (and what little sugar I was eating) when I went PB in June. After two months grain free I felt noticeably better. I do now allow myself VERY infrequent bits of bread, and VERY small portions when I do, on the order of 2-3 oz. But the longer w/o, the easier it is to not even do that.

                        An amazing thing happened when I ditched the grains (and most carbs). My toenail fungus started dying off. A month after the Freedom from Grains day, there was a distinct line across my big toenails that would have reflected that day in time. Above, dark. Below, clear. The fungus is making some last ditch recovery, but the trend is obvious and the fungus is almost all gone.

                          I have celiac disease and it took a while to get out of the toast 'habit'...I make almond flour pancakes and they are just BF, who does not really follow PB, likes them better than regular pancakes (even without all the maple syrup, though he sometimes douses them) They are so good they don't need any topping.

                          Instead of sparlking water you can add a teaspoon of baking powder. For the small amount of sweetener you can use honey (its only a tablespoon!) or, I throw in some cream instead.

                          ALMOND FLOUR PANCAKES

                          1 cup almond flour

                          2 eggs

                          1/4 cup water (for puffier pancakes, you can use sparkling water)

                          2 T oil

                          1/4 teaspoon salt

                          1 T sweetener


                          Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I like to use a nonstick pan with a little oil. The only real difference is that they won't "bubble" on top the same way as regular pancakes. Flip them when the underside is brown.

                          Yield: Six 4-inch pancakes

                          Nutritional Information: Each pancake has 1 gram effective carbohydrate, plus 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 155 calories.

                            Google "keto crackers" for the recipe but they look promising.

                            Basically it's whipped, baked egg whites to make "crackers". If you add herbs and spices you could probably make them taste like something. Supposedly they're good for mopping up sauces. And you could always use all the leftover yolks for hollandaise sauce.

                            I haven't tried them yet, but I have some free time tonight, I'll report back.

                              So basically, eggs to mop up your eggs?
