We were getting tired of eggs by about week two of Whole30.  We needed another quick, easy breakfast option that would keep us full for the morning.  Enter plantains.  If you haven't had plantains, write them on your grocery list immediately.  They are not as similar to bananas as you might think.  They're very starchy with less sugar.  Plantains have significant potassium and magnesium and are helpful to your digestive system. This recipe has become one of our favorites!
