5 Paleo Breakfast Ideas

One of my dear friends recently requested that I post some paleo breakfast ideas. This week, she needs to make all of her breakfasts perfect paleo. She’s already been dabbling in paleo since summertime, so paleo is not foreign to her. Right now, things are just slowly being dialed in for her. This friend is also the one Jason Seib and I are working with for our little project. Anyway, she specifically needs recipes that are not sweetened or as stated in the book, It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, of the “sex with your pants on” nature.

I realize, I really don’t do breakfast posts very often, even though breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I’m such a classic eggs, sausage, veggies and avocado girl that I rarely concoct an actual breakfast dish or recipe. This is a good reminder for me to work on some breakfast ideas. Regardless, there are a lot of awesome paleo breakfast ideas out there. Here are some I found that look delicious and don’t fall into the sweetened or “sex with your pants on” category. Most of these recipes can be made ahead of time and reheated or even eaten cold, so if you don’t have a lot of time in the morning, plan ahead!

If you get sick of eggs or cannot tolerate eggs, try dinner leftovers as an easy breakfast. If you usually don’t have leftovers, try making a larger quantity at dinner, so you do have leftovers. It’s not uncommon for me to eat leftover chicken soup, stew, etc. in the morning for breakfast, and it makes busy mornings really easy. Remember, breakfast doesn’t have to look like traditional breakfast.

I’ve done recipe roundups before, so maybe you already know the drill. If not, click on each photo to get to the recipe. Enjoy, and let me know if you try any of these recipes out!

        Ok…I tried the paleo breakfast muffins this morning (pre-made last night). I used tomato and swiss chard as the veggies….oh my goodness they were AMAZING!!! Totally made for an awesome part of my breakfast! Especially topped with avocado! 😉 They were a breeze to whip up, and re-heat beautifully!

        Now to try the others! 😉

        Good to know! I for sure need to try it. I’m glad it was a good start to your day. Hopefully it held you over until lunch, since your other snack is out of the equation now 😉 Remember, you can eat more at breakfast if need be though!

        Tried the banana bacon scramble one this morning….oh sweet heaven!!! It was an absolutely dreamy combination! 😉

        Good to know! I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds like such a tasty and unique combo. It’s not something I would have thought of combining on my own. Thanks for being a tester 😉 Hope your workouts have been going well so far for this week!
