Bootcamp Fuel: Paleo Peach and Pecan Scramble

Nutrition, Recipe Add comments

All right, when I first say this recipe in The Paleo Solution I thought gross!

But it hovered in the back of my mind, like the smell of my wrestling shoes in the back seat of my car.

(Ok, bad analogy)

One of the things I’m doing right now is trying 3 new paleo recipes a week, and I figured it was time for an experiment.

“Peach and pecan scramble,” I said, “let’s do this thing.”

First, I doubled all of the ingredients, if you want yours smaller, cut them in half.

Paleo Peach And Pecan Scramble Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp coconut oil (recipe called for olive oil, but I respect the ‘nut)
  • 1 peach, diced (peaches at the store looked sketchy, so I bought canned peaches in JUICE, not SYRUP, and rinsed them off)
  • 4 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 4 eggs (omega-3 or local wild if you can find them)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Step One: Dice The Peach and Pecans

In the book it says to heat the oil first, but I like to have my ingredients ready or else I end up with a smoky pan.

Chop ‘em up good and set them aside.

Step Two: Heat The Oil

Heat the oil in a pan set to medium heat.

If you’re using coconut oil, it will turn liquid in about 30 seconds.  If you go with olive oil, swish it around until it coats the bottom of the pan.

Step Three: Soften Peaches And Pecans

Dump the fruit and nuts (you are what you eat!) into the oil and stir them around until the peaches are softened.

It took about 3 minutes.

Step Four: Whisk Eggs, Applesauce, And Cinnamon

Whisk them up good while you stir-fry the peaches.

And try to get TreeTop brand applesauce, it’s from Selah, WA where I used to coach wrestling.

Step Five: Cook It Up!

Pour the eggy mix over the peaches and pecans.

Keep moving everything around and cook until the eggs are done.  It took about five minutes.

Step Six: EAT!

I sprinkled a little more cinnamon over the top before I went to town.

Taste Test Sez:

It was pretty darn scrumptious, but a little too sweet for me all on its own.  I think it would be perfect with a few strips of uncured bacon and a cup of coffee.  Try it and let me know what you think!
