Breakfast on the Wahls Protocol can be one of the hardest meals to figure out. You need a breakfast that is gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free.
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
Here are some of my favorite Wahls Protocol breakfast recipes that are a quick, easy, and delicious way to start your day.
Start with a base of non-dairy milk, like almond or coconut milk, and add frozen fruit like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and/or a banana. You can also add in some greens, like spinach or kale, and a scoop of collagen protein powder for an extra boost. Blend it all up and enjoy!
