This clean eating Italian Polenta Rounds recipe is great for a simple breakfast any day of the week!
So a while back, I was talking to my Facebook followers about how this plant-based eating plan is going for me. I mentioned how much better I’m feeling, how I’m losing weight and how my blood sugars are coming back into normal ranges.
But another thing I talked about was the fact that I’m keeping a list of foods that DON’T agree with me. I’m keeping my foods very basic so I can tell which foods I react to, and then writing them down so I remember to avoid them if I do react.
One of the things I reacted to was corn. Yep, you guessed it, this recipe right here. Not that there’s anything wrong with the recipe, I just found out the hard way my body does not tolerate corn. So this will be the last corn recipe I post for a while. At least it was yummy!!
For this recipe, you need to purchase organic polenta in log form. I get mine at trader joe’s in the same aisle as the pasta. It’s totally affordable and one log will give you a full meal or two depending on how many people you are cooking for. It’s good stuff and easy on the wallet.
