Breakfast Sushi

breakfast sushi | my skinny sweet tooth

Sushi isn’t just for lunch or dinner. Granted, you won’t find any fish or wasabi here. I’m talking about replacing all those savory elements with fruit and all good things to start your day off right. I’m also getting rid of the rice and replacing that with a low carb, high fiber tortilla. Basically, this is a no-fuss breakfast option to help pull you out of the typical cereal and bran muffin rut. Have your kiddos customize their own “roll”. They’ll have fun with it, too! Who wouldn’t love eating with chopsticks for breakfast?

Listed below are just two of my sushi creations, but the possibilities are endless. As I have more combinations, I’ll update this post 🙂 But go for it! Use what you have on hand and get creative!

Mushroom & Spinach Alfredo Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Wow. What a mouthful.

A guilt-free mouthful at that! Spaghetti squash has been a staple in low carb dieting for quite some time. Since it has visual and textural similarities of spaghetti pasta, one could easily sub this low cal veggie for almost any pasta dish. Oh, and talk about having an easy meal, this comes together rather quickly … which as we know, I’m a huge fan of. 🙂

I’ve been meaning to post this since it was such a hit on instagram. Other IGers, such as this lovely gal have recreated this and have been in love ever since. There are other stuffed squash recipes all over Pinterest, but I do love me some mushrooms … and buttery, cheesy alfredo. Mmmm … cheese.

coconut almond “butter”

I’ve been on a spread kick lately (jam, anyone?) and quite frankly, butter isn’t one of them. I’ve slowly (and officially) kicked the butter habit. I no longer need it on pancakes, waffles, or even grilled cheese! What’s my secret?

COCONUT OIL

Chocolate Covered Cherry Pancakes

Cherries are in season!! Woohoo! Such an exciting time of the year since cherries can be used with anything; breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert (Dip them in brownie batter dip: you’re welcome! 😉 )

This morning I was craving chocolate … for breakfast. Nothing unusual around here. So I whipped up your typical pancakes:

CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRY PANCAKES … with almond maple cream.

The addition of almond extract gives these pancakes that classic candy flavor! Oh, my. Another heathy, dessert-style breakfast in the books. It’s filling (added protein!) and so scrumptious! Any chocolate covered cherry lover will drool over these pancakes.

Yep, I think I just drooled on the keyboard while reminiscing my breakfast. Whoops …
