Glad to find this thread.

Am not very egg tolerant and so 1 x a week for an omlet will be about what I can handle.

Should be GF and so did buy Pamela's baking mix...have had mixed results with the baking mix in the bread machine--though it rocks for pancakes and cake. Bought a 20 lb bag...so will tweak the bread machine recipes til I find one I can count on.

I need breakfast ideas as well.

I'm just starting and found eggs in the morning are not for me. I like so many of the suggestions. Thanks so much.

I will check out the sites recommended, too.

I do like the sausage and sweet potatoe suggestion. Also, the avocado sounds great.

Peace Out,

Terri

I'm a little late to this party - lots of great ideas - one of my favourites when I make a breakfast is below. More recently I have been eating an avocado with mayo and and a sprinkle of black pepper for breakfast.

I know the idea of scrambling eggs is not new - here's my take on the classic.

4 eggs, whisked
1 T - 18% cream
40g - feta cheese, crumbled
1 - green onion, chopped
2 - 3 T - cilantro, chopped
1 t - turmeric
2 t - ginger, fresh shredded
2 C - spinach, baby or ripped into smaller pieces
pepper to taste
salt to taste (I don't think it needs it, but some do, so your choice)
bacon fat for the pan

Whisk first 7 ingredients in a bowl, then add spinach. Cook in a pan coated with bacon fat or coconut oil. Stir frequently, almost constantly (keeps the eggs fluffy). Add pepper and salt to taste.

Not including the bacon fat, recipe has:
481 cal
36g fat
34g protein
5.8 net carbs

I dont eat again for 4-5 hours after this breakfast.

I am new to the group, but not Paleo/Primal eating:

For breakfast we make a few things, but our staples include:

sweet potato hash browns (days I work out) - grate sweet potato and add seasoning - chili powder, garlic, onion, etc...whatever works for you. Then a fried/scrambled eggs with veggies

our other are muffin tin fritattas (without milk) - we make a bunch, freeze them, and then warm them up!

I'm new here but had a good breakfast today. Sweet potatoes and mushrooms sautéed in a little coconut oil and then added eggs, kind of a frittata. Added ground garlic pepper.

Yum!

Hi. New to the team (but not to Spark) but I figured I'd jump in here.

I see someone else does the sweet potato/sausage thing. I love that for breakfast.

Also, Google "caveman crunch". It's a life saver if you miss cereal. I make a big batch on the weekends and eat it all week - I pour almond milk over it.

Everything looks so good I want to eat it NOW!

Tonight I made a birthday cake for my Mr. from Carol's cookbook, 'Indulge' and I gotta say, it's the first time that I've made a recipe from a cookbook that looked as good as the picture, and tasted as good as it looked... and not an ounce of grain, or processed sugar, or artificial sweeteners in sight.

If her breakfast recipes are half as good... WOW!!!

my favorite thing to do for the work week is make a big frittata on sunday or monday night.( I usually sauté veggies like peppers, onions, mushrooms, broccoli, and asparagus in a sauce pan, toss in some sausage or bacon, then through some eggs in there... let it cook through the bottom then pop the skillet in the oven on broil until the top is cooked too). It divides nicely into 4-5 different slices and you can wrap each slice into a ziplock back.. they stay good all week and you just grab one in the morning and eat it up for a minute or so. keeps you full all morning too.

Actually I don't really mind having things we don't nowadays consider breakfast, for breakfast. (After all, the English have their kippers....) I don't miss cereal except for real oatmeal on the coldest of mornings, Bagels, donuts and pastries never much appealed (about an hour after ingesting those, I usually felt sick anyway).

I'm quite happy with eggs in a variety of styles, or leftovers from the previous night's dinner. Even a good quick saute of veggies works for me.

Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

CMSLOCUM1, I really like that idea of sweet potoatoes and sausage! My biggest problem is that I can always get yams, but I prefer real 'sweet potoates' and they are so hard to come by here. :(

A few more ideas from Primarily Paleo just popped into my inbox:

One of my families new favorites is leftover mashed sweet potatoes mixed with cooked sausage. I make it ahead of time and we just heat it up in the morning. Something about the mix of spicy and sweet-so good.

Love all the other great ideas on here.

Can't quite get my mind around eating leftovers for breakfast (they usually end up being my lunch). I also love oatmeal in the winter but I have not craved it. I have also found that I can skip breakfast - this is something I truly believed you should never do before but then on one of the threads I read about IF (intermitten Fasting). I thought I could never do it but was having trouble with my morning workouts after eating, - now I grab a fruit about an hour before the gym and find I am preforming better then I was when I first went paleo. I usually come home and then have my "Breakfast". Often it is bacon and eggs but I can also eat leftovers or other non-breakfast foods by this time (usually around 11 a.m.) Then I am good until dinner.

I used this basic recipe but did half flaxmeal and half almond meal. I made an egg sandwich on it with bacon and cheese substitute (ot really paleo but better for ME than the real thing!) It was great! Made ahead 5 for the work week!

I am starting to struggle with this a little too. I made the Wheat Belly Hot Coconut Flaxseed Cereal (the recipe is on Sparkrecipes) today. It was ok. I think the nuts I used were old, so that tainted it a little.

But guess what? I'm not as full as if I eat eggs and meat - usually bacon. I think I really need that substance to get me off to a good start. Seriously, it is just 10:45 and I am looking for lunch already!

I will try some of these other recipes for sure!

WOW..everyone is so helpful on this team. Thanks for all the awesome ideas, so many!! I copied some of the recipes down. I'm going to start off simple, so I don't overwhelm myself. I went to the store today and my local butcher. So tomorrow begins my journey into the paleo diet. Thanks again for the breakfast ideas and recipes!

Meat! Think steak and eggs, with a side of satueed spinach.
A breakfast scramble/omlette/frittata with egg and some sort of meat and veggies.
Or a pork chop or two. Or some breakfast sausage and mini frittatas (made in a muffin pan). You can also put 1-2 slices of ham in a muffin cup, break an egg into it, and bake for a make ahead breakfast.

I eat a little dairy still, so yogurt with fruit and nuts.

Also, I am obsessed with this grain-free pumpkin bars http://detoxinista.com/2012/09/grain-free-
pumpkin-bars/
I am not sure if they are techinically paleo because of the baking soda and relatively high amount of honey, but they are amazing and I don't feel guilty about eating them or letting my toddler stuff her face with them.

Try to think outside the box of standard breakfast foods, food is food and you can eat it whatever time of day you want to!

And you can drink coffee, but you probably want to cut out the sugar. I sometimes do a little bit of half and half, or almond milk. Since I don't like it black that much I also drink a lot more unsweetened tea.

You may surprise yourself with respect to the traditional breakfast items... once you start eating Paleo consisently, you will likely find you miss those foods A LOT less than you thought you might. Our household doesn't miss them much at all. Favourite breakfasts include eggs, and Primal Casserole is ALWAYS in the freezer.

My daughter is 8... adjusting to a totally new diet has had some challenges, but feeling better is a HUGE motivator. She now notices when food leaves her feeling less than well and appreciates not being hungry all of the time, or being in pain.

...and coffee is just fine (leave out the sugar, though, lol)!

~ PRIMAL FLAX BREAD ~
(we LOVE this stuff!!!! Delicious toasted with nut butter)

I've come across a really GOOD (tasty, Primal) 'bread' recipe. One of the things my daughter misses A LOT is toast, or a sandwich now and again. I've found a really good recipe that allows her to have this. It isn't a loaf, and it bakes in a cookie sheet, but it is SO tasty and does have a genuine bread-like texture... my girl would eat it for every meal if I let her. Give it a try!

Flax Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

You will need:
• 1/2 cup water
• 1-2 tbsp sweetener (I only use 1 tbsp of honey)
• 1 tbsp. chia seeds
• 5 eggs
• 1/3 cup olive oil (I've also used coconut oil and walnut oil)
• 2 cups ground flax (you can grind your own in a coffee grinder)
• 1 tbsp baking powder
• 1 tsp salt

Line a regular cookie sheet (10" X 15") with parchment paper (for easy clean-up).

Mix your dry ingredients together in a large bowl, and set aside.

Dissolve honey in warm water and stir in chia seeds. You need to let this sit for 20 minutes to allow the gel to develop, stirring it a few times to keep it from clumping. Beat your eggs until foamy and lemony in colour. Beat in oil (or freggies) and chia mixture. Add to your dry ingredients and stir hard until all the egg/liquid is incorporated.

Immediately pour it onto your cookie sheet and spread evenly... if it sits too long it will get harder to spread out nicely. Pop into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. You'll know it's done when it springs back to the touch. This recipe will make exactly one regular sized cookie sheet of flax bread: 12 - 16 servings... for ease, I just trim the edges and then cut into 12 3" X 3" (approximately) pieces .

For added deliciousness with this recipe throw in raisins and cinnamon, or nuts or other dried fruit (but of course it raises the carbs significantly)... see below for other great combos!

PER PIECE: 148 Calories, 15 g Total Fat, 1.8 g Net Carbs (7.1 total carbs - 5.3 g Fibre), 6.5 g Protein... pretty decent for 'bread'!


Okay... I've been playing with this recipe, and have discovered that if I use some freggies instead of the oil, the mouth feel is more bread-like, the texture is lighter, and it's less crumbly, so here are the adjusted ingredients:

You will need:
• 1/2 cup water
• 1-2 tbsp sweetener (I only use 1 tbsp of honey... or if I want a 'sweet' bread - like banana - I use finely chopped dates instead - about 10)
• 1 tbsp. chia seeds
• 6 eggs
• 3/4 cup freggies (cooked or grated pumpkin, mashed banana, avocado, grated pear or apple, sweet potatoe, applesauce) - beaten into the eggs
• 2 cups ground flax (you can grind your own in a coffee grinder)
• 1 tbsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• optional spices to taste (1 tsp cinnamon/vanilla, 1/2 tsp. chipotle pepper, Italian spices for a focaccia flavour)
• optional nuts or seeds (1/2 cup chopped walnuts - with banana, pumpkin seeds - with pumpkin, sunflower seeds - with avocado, almonds - with apples)

...in a house where nobody has actually ever liked banana bread, the banana/walnut/date is a hands-down favourite!

I never used to even eat breakfast, but always made it for my DH. Now, I do and even enjoy cooking again.

I have found tons of recipes on Pinterest and have filled to 2 inch binders with printed off recipes.
Just do a "paleo" search and you will spend hours there picking out whatever you wish.

I started baking bacon. I put it on 400 degrees and let it bake while I do my other things to get breakfast ready.

I sometimes fry eggs in butter, scramble them, make omlets and use left overs from the night before. I also cook sausage that I make with seasonings and ground pork.

We actually don't miss the grains/bread. For something really different, cook a steak or make a hamburger. My DH loves tomatoes with his breakfast. I have a BLT w/o the bread of course. But, I have just started all of this so in time, I will have homemade bread ready as a choice. I have made some breads, but mostly the dessert ones trying to find a replacement for the cinnamon rolls my DH always loved...they can be used at breakfast also, just haven't done it cause the protein/fat takes priority in our case.

Wheat Belly blog by Dr. Davis has bunches of recipes also. We also include dairy in our meals as we desire.

Hope this helps!

There are actually a lot of ideas already on here if you look throught the recipe forum and this one for old posts. This is a fairly common issue. I like to make all my breakfast for the week ahead or I am less likely to eat it. I make any number of egg combinations, including deviled eggs topped with bacon, hard boiled if I am in a hurry, omelette muffins as someone else mentioned, or leftovers that are a little more bland. I don't like a lot of over the top flavor early in the morning. I made a delicious egg scramble this morning with spinach, onion, mushroom and red pepper.

There are a number of ways to cook eggs; if I'm not having bacon and eggs, I often make a cheese or veggie omelette with salsa on top.
I have not given up dairy, so other than eggs I might have yogurt with berries, or cottage cheese with tomatoes.
Then there are leftovers from the day before.
I really don't miss cereal, which I used to rely on for breakfast.
I'll be interested to see what others suggest!

Here's a great Recipe for a Microwave paleo English muffin too:

I hope this helps. The English muffin is seriously good and I use it for sandwiches and burgers too, plus it's incredibly filling!

As for eggs here's a great sweet scramble (it's my go to weekend breakfast with sunflower seed butter!):

I also like to make egg cups. Just put your favorite meats & veggies in a muffin cup and fill 3/4 with beaten eggs with your favorite seasonings and spices. Bake at 350 until tops are lightly brown and the cups are firm. This week mine are sausage, broccoli and pepper. So good!

I don't have an answer, but I wanted to chime in and say I am running into the same situation. If nothing else, I need some new egg recipes, 'cause soft boiled or scrambled are getting old LOL

I am getting ready to jump into the paleo lifestyle. I feel that breakfast is going to be very hard for me. I would love some ideas on what to eat in the mornings. I LOVE my cereal, pancakes, oatmeal, toast, ect.I will feel lost in the mornings without these items. I'm also trying to keep it as low fodmap as possible. Oh can you drink coffee? You will probably see me all over this board with questions emoticon , until I figure out what I'm doing. Please bare with me. Thanks
