Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Jill Escher’s Power Breakfast

In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

On WEDNESDAY February 26 at 7:30 pm EST, we’ll welcome Jill Escher to the show. Jill is the author of Farewell, Club Perma-Chub: A Sugar Addict’s Guide to Easy Weight Loss and founder of www.endsugaraddiction.com. The recipe below is one of Jill’s favorite breakfast recipes! This breakfast may seem unusual at first, but it is super nutritious and delicious, costs next to nothing, and takes only minutes to make.

  1. Chop 3-5 fresh organic veggies of your preference into rather small pieces. Veggies can include, for example, broccoli, carrots, jicama, radishes, celery, kale, red or green cabbage. It’s easiest to do this just twice a week, storing your chopped veggie mix in a container in the fridge.
  2. Add fats, either organic olive oil or organic avocado oil, maybe some chopped organic avocado, plus some balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle salt to taste. Mix it all up. Add organic sunflower seeds or chopped organic almonds or organic macadamia nuts if desired.
  3. Top it with a dollop of chopped organic chicken liver and/or organic eggs and/or leftover organic, grassfed meat from last night’s dinner.

But you ask, how does Jill make chopped liver in the first place? Here’s her favorite way, and it’s super easy:

Place one pound of fresh, organic chicken livers on a baking tray. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until well browned, flipping them halfway. Take a large onion and sautee it in a big dollop of rendered duck fat (available at US Wellness Meats, Whole Foods and other finer grocery stores) til translucent, almost browning. Add the baked livers, a dash of balsamic vinegar, some salt, and if you like, an organic hardboiled egg or two. Then place the whole shebang in a food processor til it looks like, you know, chopped liver. Yum!

What a way to start your day, all the nutrition your body could need, a treat for the digestion, and zero blood sugar spike. You will never, ever dream of cereal, waffles, pancakes, donuts, bagels, muffins or toast again.
