In the springtime I crave fresh, simple and beautiful food. It’s all about colors, textures and the experience of eating the food, just as much as it is about the food’s flavor. This perfect Paleo spring brunch is ideal for the coming months of fresh simple produce and warmer sunny days. I love these savory “grits” because they are so light comparatively to their corn inspiration. I grew up eating grits coming from a southern family and to me they are the epitome of comfort. They take brunch to level that really allows it to be breakfast and lunch, in my opinion. But we all know the “not so secret”, that these aren’t made with corn, but instead cauliflower.
A few weeks ago I had friends in town visiting. I was so happy to have them here not just because I enjoy spending time with them but also because I loved cooking for them. We spent every morning enjoying the most awesome friends breakfasts and just about every day they’d say “OMG, I need the recipe for this.” Which made me of course feel so good about the food I was making them! One of those happened to be these five spice sausages.
Part of why we love food so much is getting to share it with those we love, when we change our lifestyles to focus on healthier food sometimes that becomes difficult if our family or friends don’t make similar choices. But I always love the opportunity to cook for them, one of which follows a Paleo lifestyle and the other who doesn’t but still makes healthy choices. Needless to say after they raved over these I knew I had to share them with you all.
