I’ve been getting creative with GAPS meals, particularly as we can add new foods. Once we introduced lettuce and cucumber I came up with this Kimchi and eggs breakfast recipe for Stage 5 of the Intro Diet. This makes one serving, but is easily multiplied.
- 1/2 cup green leaf lettuce
- 2 inches of peeled cucumber, sliced, then chopped into quarters
- thick slice of avocado
- extra virgin olive oil to drizzle
- 1/4 cup kimchi
- 2 eggs, poached
- salt & pepper
Put lettuce in the bottom of a bowl, then top with chopped cucumber. Lay the avocado slice on one side of the bowl, then drizzle everything with a little olive oil. Place the kimchi on the other side of the bowl. Place poached eggs in the center. Add salt and pepper to taste.
One of the best parts of this breakfast is the “juice” left at the bottom of the bowl at the end – a combination of kimchi juice, cucumber water, olive oil, and egg yolk. Yum!
