The PFF (Protein, Fat, Fiber) Breakfast
Every Sunday, I go to our local farmers’ market – it’s a little ritual to honor the start of the week in the best way possible.
One of the vendors who captured my admiration and my taste buds is The Farmer’s Wife. When I first read about her in the local magazine, she was the queen of grilled cheese sandwiches. I therefore never even tried her food.
Then, I overheard her offering gluten-free options. OK, that was a notch up but still not good enough in my books. Lately, she started offering paleo plates – a succulent fennel sausage on a bed of greens served with ferments from her next-door neighbor. Bingo.
This is another great example of what your PFF (protein, fat, and fiber) breakfast could look like and sustain you till lunch with no sugar dips, cravings and feeling guilty about snacking.

“The body has an amazing ability to heal. We just need to give it the right resources.”
In Overcoming Estrogen Dominance, my goal is to empower and give you the tools to take control of your hormones and health.
More than 70% of women experience estrogen dominance. The symptoms range from lumpy and fibrocystic breasts to thyroid nodules, hot flashes, fibroids, uterine polyps, painful, heavy or irregular periods to infertility and miscarriages, from mood swings to insomnia, weight gain to fatigue.
So many women have experienced the pain and frustration that comes when they feel their symptoms and complaints are dismissed or minimized. This is particularly true for women who are experiencing the symptoms of hormone imbalance. Even when doctors do offer treatment, it’s typically in the form of prescription medication or invasive surgical procedures.
In Overcoming Estrogen Dominance, I hope to show that those extreme interventions are often unnecessary, and to give women a roadmap to reverse estrogen dominance using food, herbs, supplements and natural protocols to rebalance hormones.

Kale, Fennell for Hashi people? Ah…no. How can you even suggest it! And, a basil or veggie drink for breakfast? So, where is the protein? Blood sugar goes up without protein. Basic science. As for the idea of it being tough to avoid sugar for breakfast? Ha! Sugar is so unnecessary and unhealthy.
Will try plantains. Me, I eat a lot of wild rice with eggs, veggies for breakfast, but want an alt to eggs. Lately, I am having lunch for breakfast.
Thanks for sharing those ideas. Here is an interesting article Magdalena wrote about goitrogens and thyroid conditions that will explain her thoughts. =>https://hormonesbalance.com/articles/truth-cruciferous-thyroid-not-think/
What are some ideas of a vegetarian Farmers breakfast? Would Eggs be an ok substitute instead of lamb?
Yes, eggs, if tolerated, can be an option for this meal.

If anyone sees this recipe and thinks they won’t like it think again! This was absolutely amazing. The idea didn’t intrigue me at first but decided to give it a try. And defy use the lamb. It was delicious!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I so agree with you! It is a favorite 🙂 ~HB Team

Any suggestions for gluten free , whole food plant based/vegans please?! Thank you Kindly
Hi Bernadette, Everything on our site is gluten free and whole food based. We do have some vegetarian options, but not necessarily vegan. We have found it very challenging for women to balance hormones on a vegan diet, and usually when women add small amounts of protein in like fish, they have an easier time balancing hormones. Thank you for your interest! HB Support

I have tried this recipe with turkey meat instead. I never felt so good after a meal. Clear mind, no need for a nap or coffee.
Thanks for sharing! I’m glad that worked for you. 🙂
