Breakfast ideas for primal???

Right now I"m eating eggs and "grain free" cereal which is basically a nut based cereal for breakfast.

It's kind of getting old and boring.

Anyone have any other ideas for breakfasts???


THanks!!!!

I NEVER tire of eggs. There are hundreds of ways to prepare them differently. My favorite breakfast is eggs w/ salmon and sauteed spinach!

But dinner leftovers is an awesome suggestion. Grilled chicken or salmon with a veggie side is what I would recommend. I don't do much bacon, but I do buy organic nitrate free bacon occasionally.

I love to scramble my eggs with peppers, onions and mushrooms. Love a green smoothie in the morning too--Coconut milk or almond milk *did you ever try to milk an almond?* handful of spinach, 1/2 avocado and then add:

1.Fresh or frozen berries or 1/2 banana or 1/2 chopped apple or...you get the idea
2. Protein powder, an egg, cocoa powder *not Swiss Miss*, instant espresso, etc
3. Anything you can find in fridge--today I grated some fresh ginger in to my green meanie (had blueberries, yum)

Search "Fawn" and "green smoothie" on this site and lots more ideas should come up.

Fills me up

I have to research it a bit more, but doesn't that stand to reason?

Suppose so. Will check his ingredients list against my stuff.

Just checked MS ingredients: whey protein isolate is main ingredient. My stuff just says whey protein. PSST-Don't tell Mark. My stuff has less sugar. LOL.

Trader joes precooked bacon with blueberries and tea

chili, leftover paleo spaghetti with zucchini noodles, chicken and veggies, coconut butter and dark chocolate...the possibilities are endless.

I just ordered some sugar-free brownies from Etsy. The baker is paleo herself and had lost 50 lbs after switching from Atkins to Paleo. She said the quality of food in her treats enhances her losses. She uses coconut oil, Lindt 85% chocolate, free range organic eggs, stevia/erythritol and almond/coconut flours.

If this were an Atkins baked good, it would likely call for splenda and cream cheese.

This may be an option to consider. Just put the search term "paleo" into etsy and read her feedback.


ETA: Protein powder is liquid nutrition, which is not the best option for people who are trying to lose fat.

raw meat

Steak or lamb tartare.

I buy loin lamb chops or sirloin steak, grind in a chopper, add garlic and herbs, and eat raw.

Generally I go with eggs and possibly bacon too. However, I like to take a week off from eggs every once in awhile, so leftovers is always a great option.

I love my eggs but have been without stove for almost two weeks. No boiled eggs, no fried eggs. Guess what. i didn't miss them. So, now I know I'm not hooked on them We'll see how I do this next week...the guy fixed the stove today.

Favorite breakfasts of mine:

Beef bacon and liver, with chives and white pepper
Wild salmon and eggs
Steak and sour cream or butter
Roast beef, and a slice of cheese or some yoghurt
Beef burger, sometimes with cheese
Beef sausage and braised eggs
Beef bacon cut into bits and scrambled in egg yolks
Veal brains braised in pastured butter w/ chives or green onions and white pepper

In hot weather, cold beef burgers or HB eggs, too! Often with diluted cream.

I usually have bacon and eggs, crustless quiche or eggs with veggies, and occasionally I'll have leftovers. Today, however, I made pork chops with onions, garlic, mushrooms and a coconut milk-based sauce. That was tasty! I work at home, so I'm not in a rush to prepare breakfast, which helps a lot.

Creamed eggs on a bed of steamed spinach.
Just chop up 2 or 3 hard boiled eggs and toss them in a microwave safe bowl with some butter, cream, salt and pepper. Nuke for 2 minutes until heated through, stir and nuke another minute. Serve over steamed spinach or mix the spinach in and heat that way

Yikes! My dad used to make creamed eggs with (sometimes) curry or pesto or herbs, green onions. Served over spinach. So glad you reminded me of this Dottie. Have found creamed coconut/coconut milk are even better than whipping cream. Lots of good taste and stay full a while. Oohh. Making in the morning

I usually IF~ but if I eat before noon, it's HB eggs or leftover meat from dinner the night before ~ although, every once in awhile, I taste test something I just picked from the garden, like carrots or turnips~ not very structured with breakfast~

You can do Chicken Pancakes :-)


Sorry for butting in.... I;m new :-) sort of

1 chicken breast precooked (season as desired while boiling)
3 eggs

Using a food processor, blend ingredients together until completely smooth. Mixture will look just like thick pancake batter.
Use 1/4 cup of the mixture and cook in hot greased skillet like a pancake. Batter may need to be spread out a bit so that it is not too thick.
These cook much faster than nut flour pancakes. Watch them closely.
Makes 4-5 pancakes.

There are tons of ideas on the web for almond meal and coconut flour pancakes. You can also make muffins out of them, scones, etc.
