“Here’s my typical low carb breakfast if I’m not making pancakes” – Troy
This recipe is a great source of complete, lean protein and the serotonin-precursor amino acid tryptophan. Did you know that over 80% of the serotonin that our body and brain uses is produced in our gut? Tryptophan is an important amino acid involved in making this feel-good neurotransmitter.
This recipe is also a great source of beta-carotene that we get from the sweet potato. As an added bonus, sweet potato won’t spike our insulin or blood sugar the way that white toast would with our morning breakfast. Opting for sweet potato first thing in the morning is genius and one of the best ways to start our day. Nice, Troy 😉
Top this recipe with some healthy fats from the avocado and some liver-supporting sulphur-rich onions and this is an all-round balanced, complete breakfast.
Move over Frosted Flakes and Corn Pops, Troy’s breakfast recipe has got you BEAT in all departments, especially in nutrition!
