Doing this with Harrison has been hilarious/weird. As someone who spent years in Weight Watchers Anonymous, I've been aware and educated about my food for a solid 8 years. Knowing what I'm eating and understanding the nutrition in it and how the nutrition affects the body is the norm for me. Not so much for Harrison. For example: The day he ate a freezer bag of almonds and almost sh*t his pants and couldn't figure out what upset his stomach. We had a little talk about fiber, and the fact that I eat 10 almonds a day for a few reasons...
So now that you have that visual in your mind, how about some tasty breakfast casserole:
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 50 mins
For the crust/bottom:
- 2 sweet potatoes, mashed ($2)
- 1 Cup Almond Meal (found a great deal at Wal-Mart)
- 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
For the rest of it:
- 10 eggs, beaten ($1.50)
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon sea salt + black pepper
- 2 Tomatoes, sliced ($2)
- 1/2 onion, diced ($.50)
- 1/2 lb ground turkey, cooked (I used leftover cooked turkey that didn't make it into my meatballs) ($2.50)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine all the crust ingredients and knead well with your hands (it's icky). Smash it into a non-stick 9x9 baking dish (smoosh it all around until the entire bottom of the dish is covered) and cook for 25 minutes, or until the crust is no longer dough-y in the middle.
While the crust is cooking, combine the seasonings, eggs, onion, and ground turkey and mix it all well.
Once the crust is cooked, pour the egg concoction on top of the crust. Top the egg concoction with the tomatoes and cook for 25-35 mins (until the egg is cooked all the way through). I kept mine covered in the fridge for a week, eating a piece each day.

And breakfasts like this are what make me think I could live solely on paleo breakfast.
