You have to eat breakfast! Especially a delicious paleo breakfast.
I still can’t believe how many people get up in the morning, down a cup of joe and then jet off to work. If you find yourself constantly skipping breakfast it could be that you feel like you don’t have any time in the morning to prepare a delicious breakfast.
With the paleo diet you have plenty of delicious options available to you for breakfast. I want to provide you with three of my favorites. You can always search around the Internet for more ideas. I just want to give you the paleo breakfast ideas that work for me. Maybe they’ll work for you too.
I’m busy in the morning as well so I tend to run low on time just like you. One of my favorite strategies is to make enough food for Sunday morning brunch so that I’ll have some leftovers for breakfast on Monday morning. This makes Monday morning a lot brighter and happier!
One of my Sunday staples is sweet potato hash. You can make this a lot of different ways but all I do is dice up two or three medium to large sweet potatoes. I heat up my skillet on the range and use some olive oil or grass-fed butter to grease up the skillet. I then add in all my sweet potatoes and some thyme, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
After the sweet potatoes start to get brown and cooked through I throw in some diced onions and some diced Canadian bacon. I’ve been thinking of trying grass-fed beef or buffalo but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.
I continue to cook until the onions and Canadian bacon are cooked to my liking and then I throw some baby spinach leaves on top and mix them in. You mix in the spinach for like two to three minutes and then you’re finished making the sweet potato hash. I usually fry up two eggs and throw it on top of big pile of hash. This is one of my favorite paleo breakfast ideas. And if you make enough on Sunday you can simply wake up Monday morning and heat some hash up in the microwave, fry up a couple of eggs in three minutes and presto a three-minute paleo breakfast!
The next idea is one the kids will love. It’s paleo breakfast coconut pancakes. They keep really well in the fridge and are delicious as leftovers. So again, if you make enough on Sunday morning you’ll have some for Monday.
Simply melt three tablespoons of grass-fed butter and mix it in with three whole eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of organic honey and a 1/4 cup of whole coconut milk. Mix your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. You’ll need 1/2 cup of coconut flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a dash of salt. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix together. Feel free to add more coconut milk or a little bit of water to get your consistency how you like it. Cook each pancake on medium-low heat for about three minutes on each side. Serve with berries on top and maybe a little honey if you like. These are awesome!
My Typical Paleo Breakfast Routine
Now for those of you who just can’t bring yourself to try those paleo breakfast ideas maybe you’ll like this one. This is the breakfast I eat five out of seven days a week. It’s not anything fancy but it gets the job done.
I wake up and get water boiling for my french pressed coffee. As the water is boiling I scramble three whole eggs and I put three to four slices of bacon in the toaster oven. Everything is pretty much going at once. Right about the time the water comes to a boil my eggs are finished and my bacon is close to cooked. I pour my water in my french press and let the coffee brew and then I put my eggs on my plate. Usually I throw some guacamole or avocado on my eggs along with some salsa. I’ll get my bacon out of the toaster over, press my coffee and then sit down to a simple paleo breakfast. This routine takes like ten minutes tops.
If you have more people than just yourself to feed then I think eggs are the best paleo breakfast choice. You can simply just scramble enough eggs to feed everyone. Cooking bacon is just as scalable.
I hope these simple, but delicious, paleo breakfast ideas inspired you to come up with your own tasty dishes.
