2. Instant Cinnamon "Oatmeal"

This "oatmeal" is grain-free and made from a mixture of chia seeds, flax seeds, and coconut. Not an exact substitute for the real thing, but totally delicious in its own right. Recipe here.


12. Gluten-Free Five-Ingredient Banana Blender Muffins

It's probably more accurate to call these lowish-carb, thanks to ripe bananas that make the muffins delicious. But they're gluten- and grain-free, and not nearly as high-carb as your average breakfast pastry. Plus, the batter comes together in a blender and requires no bowl or whisk! Recipe here.


18. No-atmeal

1) Grind nuts, seeds, and spices in the food processor.

2) Whisk together almond milk, egg, and a mashed banana to a custard-y consistency.

3) Combine nut mixture with custard mixture, mix to combine, then heat or microwave.

You have to be careful not to heat it too much or too quickly (the egg will scramble), but this makes for a really delicious, hearty alternative for anyone who loves hot cereal. Recipe here.


61. Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken With Roasted Leeks, Radishes, and Carrots

Make a big batch of chicken in your slow cooker and a separate big batch of roasted vegetables. BOOM! Lunch all week. Recipe here.

77. Sheet Pan Basil Halloumi Chicken

Halloumi cheese is great because it can stand up to really high heat, so instead of melting everywhere, it gets toasty and a little charred. Recipe here.

89. Seared Scallops With Pancetta and Brussels Sprouts

So many people are afraid to cook scallops at home, but really they're so fast, and all you need is a nice hot pan. Recipe here.
