7 Best Paleo Breakfast Recipes
1. Breakfast doesn’t have to be “Breakfast”
Quick, what’s the first Paleo Breakfast meal that pops into your head?
I bet it had something to do with eggs. Am I right?
While this is very true for many people, it doesn’t have to be the case for everyone.
Breakfast can be just like any other meal
Last night’s leftovers are a great option for breakfast instead of the traditional omelet.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
So pack up that lonely, extra serving of dinner and store it in the fridge for breakfast one day.
It doesn’t matter if you eat eggs or last night’s Shepard’s Pie, as long as you eat when you wake up and you’re breaking the fast…hence…breakfast.
2. Add Protein
Moving on with our Paleo Breakfast tips, it’s easy to start by discussing protein.
Breakfast protein sources can be any combination of:
- Leftover Cooked Protein- Steak, Chicken, Shrimp, etc.
Eggs are a wonderful source of protein for breakfast. They are easy to modify, which leaves the creativity in your hands and a large variety of options.
Eggs are also the highest quality protein you can buy and contain the perfect balance of essential amino acids needed to build tissues.
What a great way to start the day!
Bacon, Sausage, or Leftover Cooked Protein
Don’t stop there. You can add even more protein to your eggs.
Something as simple as two eggs with a slice of Sugar-Free Bacon can make a huge difference in your overall energy and attitude in the morning.
Make a big batch of this Homemade Sugar-Free Sausage and add it into an egg omelet or an egg scramble each morning.
Even leftovers, like last night’s steak or chicken, go great with eggs in the morning.
Couple that breakfast with a cup of coffee and the newspaper and you’ve got a slice of Heaven.
3. Have Fun with Vegetables
Vegetables provide your body with lots of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and necessary carbohydrates it needs for the day ahead.
By adding vegetables to your Paleo Breakfast, you fill your body full of nutrients before you even step out the door.
Plus, vegetables are loaded with fiber, which helps you digest slowly and keeps you feeling full for a longer period of time.
Some of the easiest green vegetables to add to your breakfast are:
- Frozen or Fresh Spinach or Kale
- Frozen Broccoli
- Leftover Cooked Vegetables – Okra, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, etc.
Spinach and Kale are the fastest and easiest raw vegetables to add to your breakfast; but, don’t forget about last night’s already cooked broccoli or asparagus either.
Mix it up each day if you like.
Variety inspires excitement, and excitement creates positive action.
Paleo Breakfast doesn’t mean “Low Carb” or worse, “No Carb.”
Carbohydrates are NOT the devil.
Carbs provide your body with the energy it needs throughout the day. Women, especially, need to ensure they get enough carbs, otherwise their hormones may go unbalanced, leading to more serious problems.
Some great non-green vegetables to add to your breakfast are:
- Sweet Potatoes
- White/Red Potatoes
- Squash Varieties
I will often roast Hash Browns using a combination of sweet and red potatoes along with some onions and garlic.
4. Cool It Down
Take advantage of frozen fruit and make these amazing Smoothies for breakfast.
Fresh fruits lose essential nutrients immediately after they are picked. As the produce travels from the farm, to the grocery store, to your house, and finally ends up in your fridge, the fruit can lose up to 45% of its essential nutrients.
Frozen fruit is flash frozen right after it’s picked so it retains most of its essential nutrients and provides you with an amazing, power-packed breakfast.
Plus, the price of frozen fruit is hands-down the most economical way to purchase fruit.
Great to Make Ahead
Smoothies are great because you can make them ahead of time and store them in the freezer for the morning.
They will need a little time to thaw so you can drink them, but the taste and texture will be just like you blended it up that morning.
5. Spice It Up
Spices are a wonderful addition to your breakfast routine – both for flavor and heat.
You can completely change a Mexican Omelet to a French Omelet to a Classic Omelet by only changing the spices.
Mexican Spice Blend
- Chili Powder
- Cayenne Pepper
- Smoked Paprika
- Fresh Jalapeno Peppers
French Spice Blend
Fresh Spice Blend
- Green Onions
- Fresh Spinach
Try experimenting with different spices each day, or find one spice combination you love.
6. Paleo Breakfast Prep Ahead Meals
Skipping breakfast is one of the worst things you can do.
After fasting overnight, your body needs something to get the gears shifting inside. Your brain needs an energy source so it can make powerful and smart decisions.
When you don’t have time in the morning to make and eat breakfast, then…Prep Ahead.
Prepping ahead is your saving grace when you’re short on time.
Some great Paleo Breakfast ideas that are great to Prep Ahead are:
- Egg Casserole
- Omelet Muffins – Make the Egg Casserole, then bake it in a lined muffin tin.
- Bacon Egg Cups – Make the Egg Casserole, then bake it in a Bacon-lined muffin tin. (um…Amazing!)
7. Enjoy Bread…Paleo-Style
Going “gluten-free” is not necessarily the same thing as “bread-free”.
Can I hear a “hallelujah?”
After following the Whole30 Challenge, I stopped eating bread for a long time. After a while and in an effort to create a long-lasting lifestyle change, I decided to experiment with some gluten-free flours.
Each gluten-free flour has its own properties, taste, and texture, and each one alters the mixture in slightly different ways.
It took me quite some time to figure it out, but I finally achieved the best Paleo Flour Mix.
Check out the Paleo Flour Recipe here and enjoy the Paleo Breakfast Breads below for breakfast.
- Banana Muffins or Banana Bread
- Blueberry Muffins
- Bread Rolls
- Cranberry Bread
- Paleo Bread Loaf
