Cut your cauliflower head in half. Slice a 1/2 inch piece of cauliflower. Place your cauliflower slice in a pan with olive oil over medium head for about two minutes on each side. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the cauliflower and then place it on a baking pan. Put the pan in the oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Place roasted read peppers, garlic and seasoning in a bowl and puree with a hand blender and then set aside.
Fry an egg.
Smear the pepper puree on the cauliflower and place the fried egg on top.
Note: You can add feta to the red peppers instead of using an egg. If you decide to use Feta, add it to the pepper mixture and puree. This will hold the feta on the cauliflower.
Tutorial: Here is how you fry an egg.
I will be sharing a breakfast recipe on Monday but found this on LivecleanMB and felt like we needed to share. Enjoy a double recipe week!
For some metabolic balancers breakfast can be a difficult meal, a rushed schedule, not accustomed to taking the time to prepare or eat breakfast, etc. I asked Sonya McLeod, metabolic balance® coach in Vancouver, BC for some ideas:

Instructions for grilled avocado slices:
Instructions for grilled Avocado halves:
Instructions for Salsa:
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a hand blender. Pulse a few times to add a juice to the salsa but avoid over mixing and making a sauce. Salsa is chunky so avoid over blending.
After you have mixed the ingredients, add seasoning to taste and then let it sit for a few hours so the flavours can combine.
NOTE: You can decide to add an egg or other protein to your avocado meal. We talked before about eggs in an avocado which makes a filling meal. This recipe would also work really well with Chickpea chips.
Over the weekend, we found a video of a vegan cooking challenge and one of the recipes was metabolic balance plan friendly so we decided to share it and omit the ingredients that would throw you off plan.
Place all the tomatoes and garlic on a roasting tray and drizzle a bit of olive oil over the pan Add salt and pepper and mix ingredients until covered with oil and seasoning. Roast for approximately 30 minutes.

Peel a butternut squash and split/slice it in the middle. Remove seeds. Cut halves into half and place the sections on a spiraliser. Saute the “noodles” in a pan with a bit of olive oil. Add the tomato sauce and mix until the noodles are softened.
Place the noodle mixture on a plate and add remaining tomatoes. Add rye croutons if desired.
Note: There is no protein in this meal. If you would like, you may add a nut, a meat or a favourite cheese from your plan. Or, if you want to be very European, have a cheese with your fruit for dessert and skip the protein in the main meal.
PS. Spiralizers look like this. If you do not have one, use a food processor or julienne peeler.
