      • Hi Vee,
        Magdalena does not recommend legumes in her programs because unfortunately they are not easily digestible and they can cause or worsen our digestive health. You might try just eliminating the bacon and experimenting with another plant based protein such as nuts or seeds.

    • Hi Terrie,
      You can eliminate the bacon is you are vegetarian. Substitute another protein if you like such as hemp hearts. Experiment with it and let us know how it goes.

    • HI Terri,
      You can just eliminate the bacon and insert a non-meat protein source. The walnuts in the recipe might just be enough, or add some hemp hearts. Let us know what you come up with.

  1. i am doing the AIP plan and read another article that tells me to not have Oatmeal and Several ingredient that are in a bread recipe that you have from that same plan..Who Do I go with..?.. I was ordering them Thrive Market and Could not get the order to work..So maybe that was a good thing.. Does everyone have different ideas on food plans for the AIP protocol?.. Help..I am getting confused…
    I am a member of your Cooking for Hormone..
    Thanks Edye Weller

    • Hi Edye,
      In the Cooking For Balance program there is an AIP protocol guide to give you a list of foods to avoid and foods to include. Be sure to ask in the Hormone Thrivers Facebook group as well. As a member, you have access to that. There are a lot of options for AIP.

    • Hi Jen,

  2. If you don’t want to gain anymore weight, you probably shouldn’t use this recipe?
    Would the sweet potato and maple syrup hinder weight loss?

    • Hi Janice,

      In proper portions, this has been helping some others with weight concerns. When you read about the PFF (protein, fat and fiber) in the article, it explains that it can rebalance hormones. It can also decrease cravings and sugar spikes. We hope you get to try it out. ~Deanna HB Team

  3. A filling breakfast to start the day is what every individual needs. This treat is both delicious and healthy. It’s quick and easy to make plus it is budget friendly. It’s the perfect day kicker.

    • Hi Mayumi,

  4. It’s delicious! A different twist to an all-time favorite breakfast fare. The sweet potatoes works well with the oatmeal, I should say it’s a great way to start the day!

  5. Wow. I just came across your blog and it just so happens that I’m looking for a new breakfast fare. Tired of the usual. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  6. I’m past menopause. Would this recipe help me at all?

    I’m suffering with very dry, itchy skin all over, and redness and blind, painful pimples on my face.

    Would substituting steel cut oats for rolled negatively affect the recipe?

    Thanks very much.

    • Hi Guiliana, this recipe will help balance blood sugar at any age. There could be many different reasons for dry, itchy skin all over, and redness and blind, painful pimples on your face.
