Saturday Breakfast - Low Carb & Grain Free

This morning we slept in for a change. We had planned to go shopping last night but both hubby and I fell asleep still in our clothes without eating dinner. That means we need to face the crowds today instead. When I woke up this morning I was in the mood for a more substantial breakfast. We're planning to get out in the hustle bustle today and get our shopping finished and are easing ourselves into the day that is sure to be full of craziness and long lines. I snapped a few photos of our "comfort breakfast" below. Nothing fancy, but all low carb. Scrambled organic eggs with cheddar, Southern Style Buttermilk Biscuits, chicken maple sausage patties and Cranberry Orange Sauce served with a cup of Nantucket Blend coffee. It's just what I needed before facing shopping on the last Saturday before Christmas. Enjoy!

I see you use pre-shredded cheese. Doesn't that use starches to keep it from sticking together?

Hi Nanette,

I do sometimes use pre-shredded cheese, although most of the time I buy it in big blocks from Costco and shred my own. When I purchase pre-shredded, I select brands (like Sargento) that do not use cornstarch as an anti-caking agent. Sargento uses potato starch. According to Dr. Davis (Wheat Belly) that is okay to use because the amount is trivial. But, I prefer shredding my own because it melts more nicely without any additives. When I'm in a hurry (like now with the holiday approaching), I don't mind using the pre-shredded. Hope that helps! :-)
