Soy-Free, Vegetarian, Nut-Free, Organic
It’s time again for another favorite weekend indulgence, and this breakfast sandwich is one of my top favorites. I try to eat gluten and grain free the majority of the time, but when I’m going to treat myself I always go for a good sourdough bread. Sourdough not only makes everything taste better (in my opinion!) but is also easier on my digestive system.
I work alongside a doctor who uses people’s genetics to help them fine-tune their dietary needs and combat inflammation, because inflammation is the root of all dis-ease. I happen to have all of the genes that predispose me to not break down gluten well, so I choose to limit my exposure. I know that if I go carb-crazy I get bloated, my stomach hurts, I get heartburn, I get bags under my eyes – the list goes on and on, but my immune and digestive systems basically become a mess. By limiting my exposure I allow these genetic pathways to open up so that they function better when I do decide to ingest wheat. Which is why getting to make and eat this sandwich is super exciting for me!
Double plus – the fat still outweighs the carbohydrate and protein loads, so if you’re working towards ketosis this would be a great meal to have before a big hike or workout day!
Whether you eat wheat all of the time, or just on occasion, I think you’ll find this to be as yummy and satisfying as I do!
- Heat oil in a small skillet until over medium heat. Add egg whites and sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes.
- When starting to bubble, flip egg whites and season other side. Cook until desired doneness.
- Top toasted sourdough with 1/2 avocado. I like to season mine with salt & pepper & red pepper flakes – the more the better!
- Stack kale on top of avo toast.
- When eggs are ready, stack eggs on top of kale.
- Sprinkle generously with feta and green onion.
- Enjoy! (with loads of hot sauce, if you’re a fanatic like I am)
