Paleo Banana Protein Pancakes Recipe
Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole

This recipe is keto and paleo friendly.

Servings: 9 squares
Ingredients
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp EACH Garlic Powder, Dried Sage, Red Pepper Flakes, Italian Seasoning, Paprika, and Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp EACH Onion Powder and Black Pepper
  • 2 C. Chopped Kale
  • 12 Eggs
  • 1/2 C. Melted Coconut Cream (from a can of full-fat coconut milk)
  • Sea Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 C. Organic Shredded Cheese (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add the ground turkey and all of the spices. Mix until fully combined.

  3. In a skillet over medium heat, add the ground turkey and cook until done. *Tip: I like to add about 1/4-1/3 C. of water to keep the turkey from drying out.

  4. Once turkey is done, add the chopped kale to the skillet and saute until kale is wilted. Remove skillet from stovetop and set aside.

  5. In a mixing bowl, add the eggs and whisk until egg yolks are fully broken down. Then, add the melted coconut cream, sea salt, and pepper. Mix again.

  6. Grease an 8×8 casserole dish with coconut oil or avocado oil. Add the ground turkey mixture to the bottom of the dish. Then, pour the egg mixture evenly over the ground turkey. Sprinkle the cheese over top, if desired (not necessary).

  7. Bake dish for about 40 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top of the casserole is golden in color. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. ENJOY!

Keto Breakfast Casserole
Almond Butter Protein Chia Pudding

This recipe is keto and paleo friendly.

Servings: 2
Ingredients
  • 1.5 C. Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Creamy Almond Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Tbsp Granulated Low Carb Sweetener (i.e. Monk Fruit, Birch Xylitol, etc.)
  • 6 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 Scoops Collagen Protein Powder
  • Optional Toppings: Cacao Nibs, Blueberries, Almond Butter
Instructions
  1. Add about 1/4 of the almond milk to a mixing bowl along with the almond butter and mix with a fork. It will be lumpy and that's okay.

  2. Next, add the vanilla and sweetener and mix again.

  3. Then, add the chia seeds. Mix again. Pour remaining almond milk into the bowl and mix until fully combined. **It's okay if almond butter is still lumpy.

  4. Place chia pudding in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then, mix it again until all of the almond butter and chia seeds are broken up and mixed into the almond milk. Place back in fridge over night or for at least 2-3 hours.

  5. When ready to serve, stir in the protein powder. Add your favorite toppings and ENJOY!
