It’s that time of year again! Everyone and their mother is doing the Whole30. Me included. This is my third time around and I’m excited to be on day 12 already!
Follow me on Instagram (@coreysuzanne) for lots of food pics and inspiration!
I’ve got a few favorite Whole30 and paleo breakfast recipes for you:
- Pumpkin Carrot Cake
- Cinnamon Fried Apples
- Chia Seed Pudding (Chai, Blueberry, Earl Grey Tea, Strawberry, Cran-Orange, Cinnamon Apple, Pumpkin Pie, Pina Colada, Vanilla Bean, and a bunch with chocolate that are not Whole30 approved, but still wonderful!)
- Apple Nutty Crisp
- Peach Blueberry Nutty Crisp
- Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash
- and now… Paleo Blueberry and Sweet Potato Sausage Balls!!
What are your favorite Whole30 or paleo breakfast meals?
My kids loved these! I made a double batch the other day and kept them in the fridge so I could just heat them up in the mornings and have an easy healthy breakfast or snack option. You can also eat them cold if you need something on the go!
The flavor of these Paleo Blueberry and Sweet Potato Sausage Balls is really yummy. They are slightly sweet and warmly spicy (add more or less spice mix depending on your taste preferences). They are the perfect marriage of sweet and savory in one little bite. Plus, the health benefits are all packed in because you have a protein, a fruit and a root veggie.
I have made these with cashew meal and shredded apples but I think they are better without those ingredients. The shredded apples don’t add that much flavor and you have to squeeze out all the juice so that it doesn’t make the sausage too wet and that just feels like such a waist to me. The cashew flour doesn’t really add much one way or another and so I say if its not helpful in taste, texture or health then kick it out.
The sausage I use is Bob Evens Original Pork Sausage because, believe it or not, that is the only sausage I have found that is Whole30 compliant. You could also just use ground pork/turkey/chicken.
When it comes to frozen blueberries, I like to use the Wyman’s of Maine’s frozen Wild Blueberries. No, they aren’t organic, but they have a wonderful flavor and they are tiny so you can get more into each sausage ball and not have to work around giant blueberries.
