I randomly made up this breakfast a few years ago and I’ve loved it ever since on chilly mornings. The combination of ingredients sounds a little strange, but it tastes so good together! Apparently others love it too, as this recipe has been featured on several of my friends’ blogs and in JJ Virgin’s cookbook.
– 1/2 to 1 apple – chopped into bite-size chunks
– about 4 oz sliced turkey (get the nitrate/nitrite-free kind like Applegate Farms or Trader Joe’s) – also chopped into bite-size pieces
– about 1/4 cup of walnuts
As you can see, all the measurements are approximate, it’s really up to you. Melt some butter or ghee or coconut oil in a pan and add the apple. Let that sauté for a while, then add the turkey and stir it all together. Sauté until the apple pieces start to brown and get a little soft. Add the walnuts last and let everything heat up for a little longer. Serve with some black pepper. I love this for breakfast because it keeps me full for a while and has a good amount of protein, fat, and fiber to keep my blood sugar stable.
