I don’t want this to happen to you. It’s happened to me before, and it took me a few days to get back on track. Some people never get back on track. Therefore, I want to provide you with the tips and tricks I learned for keeping up with a Grain-Free lifestyle in the midst of a busy life.
Do you love your breakfast? Do you have a short list of “go-to” recipes? Need a bit of inspiration to start eating breakfast again?

So I’m going to show you how to get the protein, as well as some veggies and healthy fats for your breakfasts.

1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon almond butter (creamy is preferred)
2 dates (optional)

I have a ton of recipes I’d love to share with you that’ll turn your bad impression of smoothies into a love affair like no other.
