Breakfast

A familiar comment before the start of the Paleo Challenge is, “I just don’t know what I’m going to eat for breakfast.”  Dinner’s always the easiest to make Paleo. Lunch is a second runner up because we’ll often have leftovers from dinner.  Breakfast is the most challenging because unless you want to eat eggs every morning (which I do and I haven’t been bored of it in 3 years); then you’re SOL.

 Remember why we eat.  FOOD IS FUEL.  We eat breakfast because our bodies need nourishment to perform for the day ahead of us.  Ask yourself if pop-tarts and cereal would give you enough energy to thrive. It’s no.

Option 1: Bacon or sausage with over-easy or scrambled eggs + shredded kale, diced brussel sprouts, frozen okra, sliced zucchini.  If you google breakfast you can get very creative with stuffed mushrooms and tomatos, vary the seasonings.  You can even make egg muffins (which I choose not to do because it still takes 30 minutes to bake them).

Option 2: No-oatmeal.  This is a great alternative if you’re a fan of oatmeal. You can leave it raw until you get to work (microwave needed, though) and it’s best if you eat it RIGHT AWAY!  Find my recipe here!  My recipe is more like snack-size – the carb comes from a banana and not a vegetable.  Keep veggies handy for a mid-morning or afternoon snack.

Option 3: Make any meat and vegetable meal.  I’m usually less hungry in the morning, so sometimes if I run out of eggs or just tired of them, I just make a mini-dinner!  Have a few ounces of steak, put some asparagus on the pan, add some fruit to the side, and I have a great breakfast.
