Dynamic Daughters: Breakfast Pizza!
GOD CREATED PEOPLE IN HIS OWN IMAGE; GOD PATTERNED THEM AFTER HIMSELF; MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM...THEN GOD LOOKED OVER ALL HE HAD MADE, AND HE WAS THAT IT WAS EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY.
"A healthy self-image is seeing yourself as God sees you - no more and no less."

I have a very picky eater! But as I have posted before, I refuse to create food as a battlefield! Thus, I choose to find ways to nurture our relationship, nurture our health, and respect each other!
My amazing warrior girl LOVES pizza and muffins!
I have been on a quest for the last year to create whole, real food, nutritious baked goods and pizza that she really enjoys and doesn't ask for the bakery or takeout!
Today I share with you a yummy Breakfast Pizza that became a huge hit for her. It was a wonderful Friday dinner for us since we have committed as a family to abstain from meat on Friday's as our way of reflecting and remembering the amazing sacrifice Christ made for us.
I used a small cast iron skillet for this one.
I think it was the little 5 inch one!?
I whisked up 3 eggs
with about 1/4 cup of bone broth,
1/4 cup of coconut milk,
1 tsp of garlic powder.
I put a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil in the pan on medium heat.
Pour the eggs into the pan.
Once I saw it getting firmer around the edges and the bottom...
I then transferred the whole pan into the oven at 350 degrees...
for about 5-10 minutes.
Basically until I saw it getting firmer.
Before it browned I pulled it out.
That is when I put the organic pizza sauce, or one I have made from tomato paste and seasonings,
sprinkled with cheese,
put back into the oven until the cheese has melted to satisfaction.
And there you go...add whatever toppings you want!
For me I put olives, mushrooms, spinach, peppers....lots of yummy-ness!
How does this nurture my daughters soul?
She sees me wanting to create things she enjoys eating and is still nutritious for her. Because I know the more balanced I can help her keep her hormones, the easier this roller coaster of pre-teen and womanhood will be! (Check out Dr. Sara Gottfried's HORMONE RESET DIET, to learn more about how we as women can understand our hormones better, thus being able to help our daughters understand the hormones in their bodies!)
Thus, this meal will give her great protein to satisfy and keep her insulin balanced. All the different healthy fats in it will create a satiety to help think clearer. And the whole experience is enjoyable!
Blessings, prayers, and hugs always,
