It’s so simple. I have no idea why I didn’t think to do this sooner! I basically take some type of meat (usually ground) and cook it with a shredded veggie. Combinations we like – chorizo with sweet potato – ground pork or lamb with zucchini or yellow squash or carrots.
This is chopped chorizo with shredded sweet potato.
I cook the meat and then add the shredded veggies – sprinkle a little salt and pepper – maybe a little garlic powder and boom – it’s done. Then I put it into freezer bags- just enough for one days breakfast. When it’s time to reheat I can either microwave the contents or reheat on the stove – sometimes (not every day) I scramble an egg or two in while I’m reheating on the stove or I fry an egg. It’s also easy to add a little fresh fruit on the side as well.
The combinations are endless, so get creative! For all my mom friends – the power of the sneaky shredded veggie is amazing! My kids eat their veggies for breakfast every morning without complaint. Shredding them sneaks them in without my kids really even noticing.
These meals will keep in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Make sure you use a freezer bag or some other type of container that is made for use in a freezer.
It’s hard to think of quick grain free – dairy free breakfast options, so freezing these meals has been a major life saver for me! I wish I had thought to do this sooner.
