Before I got into sausage or breakfast hashes, I was the egg queen. I would have eggs every morning and it is no surprise that I built up an intolerance. As I would love to add eggs back into my diet, it isn’t worth it when my stomach feels like it is being ripped apart.
This lead me to finding my love for sausage. I love love love it in my breakfast sweet potato hash that you can find here! However, finding good quality sausage can be expensive. When it comes to pre-made meats such as sausages companies will fill it with unnecessary ingredients. Some ingredients to look out for are:
- Natural Flavors
- Artificial Flavors
- Sugar (and all the other terms for sugar such as Dextrose)
- Soy Proteins
Many of these ingredients cause systemic inflammation, hormone disruption, digestive issues, and so on. This is not good especially if you are healing your gut or healing other abnormalities.
This lead to the creation of spicy blueberry sausage! When doing some research on Pinterest, I would have never thought to put berries into sausage. It is a sneaky way to get more antioxidants in your life!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s a sweet n spicy and pairs well with loads of vegetables. Some of my favorites are purple sweet potato fries found here or rainbow carrot coins here! You really can’t go wrong with this recipe!
