We know you’re busy and that sometimes it can hard to mesh your hectic lifestyle with healthy eating.
The biggest mealtime issue people run into while eating paleo is finding good paleo breakfasts that aren’t made just of eggs. Sure, eggs are great, but there is a whole slew of options available to you if you’re willing to look for them.
The best recipes are both delicious AND simple, and don’t require the skills of a molecular gastronomist to be put together. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five quick and simple paleo breakfast recipes that you can use when you’re in a hurry. If you want, you can even enjoy these meals at any time during the day (because, let’s be honest, any time is a good time for breakfast).
I know – you’re hungry – so, without further ado, here are five great paleo breakfast recipe ideas.
5 Paleo Diet Breakfast Recipes
- Eggs – 3 typically works best
- Fillings – whatever you would like
- Make sure you have your fillings prepared and ready to go, along with your eggs beaten
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, add the Paleo oil of your choice
- Once pan and oil are heated, pour beaten eggs into the pan
- As the edges around the pan begin to harden first, use your spatula to flatten them out. While doing this, also turn the pan to make the runny center part of the eggs move outward to the corners to cook as well.
- After a few minutes, most of the egg should be cooked evenly, with perhaps a bit of slightly runny egg left in the middle of the pan
- Add your fillings of choice to the center of the omelet
- Using your spatula and tilting your pan to help the process, fold one half of the omelet over the other
- Use your spatula to remove the folded omelet from the pan and place it onto your plate
- Eat and enjoy!
- Omelets are great because they are so versatile. Whip up some eggs, throw anything Paleo in there and you're good to go. Check out our list of 101 Paleo foods to get some ideas at http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/101-paleo-diet-foods/
