Many of us grew up with the idea that breakfast should include fruit, sweetened yogurts, grains and cereals. We may as well have called it “morning dessert.”
A quality breakfast is instrumental in balancing hormones, but it’s important to eat things that truly nourish and fuel you. That’s why I love these high-protein breakfast patties, which are perfect for meal prep and easy reheating on busy days.
I personally recommend avoiding a high carb, high sugar breakfast in favor of the PFF breakfast (protein, fat, fiber.) By loading up on protein, fat, and fiber, we guarantee no blood sugar dips, and sustain our blood sugar levels so we don’t exhaust our adrenals. Proteins are also full of amino acids, which are the building blocks on our hormones. Plus, eating this way helps us break our sugar habit.
These breakfast sausage patties are full of fresh and dried herbs with a subtle maple sweetness, though you can opt to leave out the maple syrup if you’d like. Best of all, they’re baked in the oven for easy cleanup.
Enjoy these patties with a side of avocado and your favorite, fiber-rich veggies for a sustaining and delicious breakfast.
