Growing up, breakfast was always my favorite meal of the day. Scrambled eggs with ham and cheddar? Yes. French toast drenched in maple syrup? More, please. Crispy waffles, fluffy pancakes, bagels smothered in cream cheese, cinnamon rolls, spicy sausage, a quick bowl of cereal? Honestly, it didn’t have to be breakfast. I’d reach for those things any time of day! And while I sometimes miss the flavors and convenience of some of those foods, I’ve been having a blast coming up with Paleo-friendly breakfasts to reach for over the years. (Five now since I did the autoimmune protocol! Wow!) And while my everyday breakfast more often than not consists of a quick smoothie and some leftover sausage, this Breakfast Pizza is kind of an amazing thing to whip out for weekend brunch. For only having four ingredients (plus the crust), it packs a huge variety of flavors, and takes relatively little effort to prepare! Especially if you happen to have leftover sausage and hashbrowns to use!
Struggling with thyroid disease?
Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? by functional medicine practitioner Datis Kharrazian is single-handedly responsible for my improved health over the past few years. It introduced me to the connection between autoimmune disease and lifestyle factors like diet at a time when my doctors were telling me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid even though I had high antibodies. This book gave me the information I needed to get the right tests ordered and seek proper treatment. It’s a must-have guide for anyone who has already been diagnosed with thyroid disease, who is at risk due to family history, or who strongly suspects they may have it but isn’t sure where to start. I can’t recommend it enough!
