When people usually get started into Paleo Diet, the first thing that gets into their minds is what do they will eat for breakfast?
Here are the documented seven days of Paleo friendly breakfasts that most people regularly eat – from quick smoothies on the go to oven baked eggs on the weekend.
Monday – Mushroom & red capsicum omelette with avocado coriander salad.
The secret to making a quick yet delicious breakfast in the morning is to prepare everything you need the night before. While cooking dinner, you may usually pre-chop onion, mushrooms, red capsicum and most of the salad stuff except for avocado, to keep it fresh. Then in the morning, all you have to do is heat a frying pan with some ghee or coconut oil and throw in onion, mushrooms, and capsicum to sauté on medium heat for a few minutes. In the meantime, I whisk the eggs (3 whole and 2-3 egg whites, plus some sea salt) and slice avocado for the salad. You may then pour whisked eggs in the frying pan and let it cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until cooked almost all the way through. then fold the omelette in half and slice three ways. You may also dress the salad with lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil. All up it takes 15 minutes and you have a lovely breakfast on the table.
Tuesday – Sunny side up eggs with crispy bacon, sauerkraut and kale.
Again, prep as much as you can the night before. In this case you may pre-trimmed the bacon and washed/chopped the kale leaves. Fry bacon in some ghee or coconut oil until crispy, then do the eggs in the same frying pan and finish off with kale sautéed with some lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt. Eat sauerkraut drizzled with olive oil, it’s full of probiotics which are great for keeping your gut flora in tact.
Wednesday – Strawberry Margarita
Wednesday – Strawberry Coconut Smoothie. We do eat a lot of eggs and it can get pretty boring. Plus, this is super quick to make!
Thursday – Egg omelette with chicken sausage, sauerkraut and cherries.
Make omelette as per Monday. Chicken sausage can be cooked the night before so you can quickly reheat it in the morning. Fresh cherries or berries are a great little addition.
Friday – Natural Greek yogurt with cherries, banana, coconut flakes and toasted cashews.
You may eat some dairy so yogurt often makes an appearance on my breakfast menu. It’s another way to get a good dose of probiotics in your tummy. If you avoid dairy, use coconut cream instead. This meal consists of 4 tablespoons of unsweetened, full fat Greek yogurt, a handful of cherries with pips out, 1/2 sliced banana, 1 tablespoon of coconut flakes, 1 tablespoon of toasted cashews. Press cherries down with a knife, like crashing a garlic clove, and the pips will easily come out. You can toast and crash a container full of cashews on the weekend so they’re ready to be used whenever you need.
Saturday – Baked eggs with chorizo & mushrooms.
Weekends are all about home brewed coffee and lazy breakfasts. If you don’t go out to forage our morning meal, you may want to make baked eggs with different tomato bases. You can do a simple tomato, olive & basil base or fatten it up with chorizo, bacon, mushrooms and other goodies. You can try this Moroccan baked eggs tagine.
