I have a question about the cottage cheese! I considered that dairy. I have not been able to buy the diet book yet. So is that an approved food for Paleo? I understand this is for recipes, so if im in the wrong forum!

I like the idea of the kale with eggs and bacon! I just found a recipe for an omelette with chopped green chili peppers and cilantro folded over asparagus spears. Asparagus will soon be here, also fiddleheads which I think would work as well.

(my work week fair is a cup of veggie soup and whatever protein is in fridge from last night)

My favorite weekend breakfast:

Take a few slices of bacon, chop and fry up.
As bacon cooks, soft poach your egg.
Now add a generous amount of kale to the bacon - stirring and continue to cook till heated and bright, add a splash of lemon juice.

Plate the kale, and slide the egg on top of the kale and bacon nest.

Top with pepper and fresh dill. emoticon

One of my latest go to breakfasts is frozen cherries with a few tablespoons each of coconut milk and sliced almonds. You can microwave them briefly to thaw if you prefer them warm. I like to let them rest a bit and eat them semi frozen. My son prefers them warm.

I like to combine sweet and sour cherries to make it a bit more primitive.

Depending on the quality of the coconut milk and the sourness of the cherries a few drops of vanilla and a teaspoon of honey may be added.

I saw this in the Paleo Recipe Book and thought it looked tasty!

Almond Flour Pancakes
1 cup almond flour;
• 2 eggs;
• 1/4 cup water;
• 1 tbsp honey;
• 1 tsp vanilla extract;
• A pinch of ground cinnamon;
• Coconut oil, butter or ghee for cooking;
• A pinch of salt;

1. Combine the eggs, honey and vanilla extract in a
bowl and whisk everything together.
2 Add the almond flour, cinnamon and a pinch of
salt and combine well.
3 Heat a large pan over a medium heat, add a bit
of coconut oil or butter to coat and pour 1/8
of the pancake batter, quickly turning the pan
around to spread the pancake over the whole
pan.
4 Cook until brown on the underside, about 1 minute
and then flip and cook for another minute
on the other side.

I Made this last night for my breakfast for the next few days. I found it on thefoodee.com and it is from Mark's Daily Apple

Breakfast Casserole:
1 lb breakfast sausage/ground meat you prefer, browned
3 turnips, peeled and grated (in food processor)
4 eggs, whisked well together
3 scallions, chopped

Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well together. Then add to a pie dish and bake for 45 minutes, cover and bake for an additional 25 minutes.

I used 6 eggs, elk sausage, 2 scallions and i only baked for an additional 15 minutes. This was fantastic. It might be ok with 4... but it just seemed like 4 wouldn't be enough to keep it moist to me...

I am making it again tomorrow night for a potluck on Friday, but with taco seasoned ground turkey, jalapenos and and onion... yummo!

I found this recipe in Mark Sisson's ebook for Almond Butter pancakes. So good and so easy!

2 ripe bananas
1 egg
1 heaping tbsp almond butter

Mash bananas, add egg and stir. Add almond butter and mix well. Then treat it like regular pancake batter!

They came out awesome! A little gooey and hard to flip -- I might have used too much almond butter and too little egg, but they were still delicious! Top with some butter and warmed up blueberries. YUM! I had two and was pretty full. Wish I wasn't out of bacon because that would have been a lovely side. Super easy, you guys gotta try these :)

Has anyone ever put coconut milk in eggs? I found a recipe for crustless quiche with this combo and I think it sounds kind of weird. Can you taste to coconut in the eggs?

No eggs in this one.....

cottage cheese (full fat, of course)
berries or fruit of choice
dry roasted almonds or other nuts
1/2 cup of Lydia's Organics Very Berry Cereal

The Lydia's cereal is grain-free, made from spouted seeds, dried fruit, and coconut. Also has a few other ingredients, including agave nectar. You can find it in the raw foods section of many natural foods stores.
There's also a grainless Apple cereal that's good, too. Link below:

i make my own almond butter. i don't have a vitamix, but i have a cuisinart food processor. i grind them until my processor starts feeling hot, roughly 8 or 10 minutes. then i turn it off, come back an hour later, and finish the grinding, usually only a few minutes more. it's good to scrape down the sides occasionally, and to break up the big lump of crushed almonds occasionally, too.

Today I cooked up a slice of bacon and then used the same pan to cook up some yellow bell pepper sliced up to medium chunks and a whole onion slice up similarly. The pepper was large so it made up about 2 cups worth of cooked pepper and onion. While this was cooking spiced up the batch with fresh Cilantro. Put all that into storage and makes for easy warm up with other dishes. Then using the same pan fried up 5 medium eggs and used some paprika and some fresh cilantro to spice up the eggs. Fresh coffee and brunch was good.
Cooking up burgers ahead also helps with the quick meals. The Romaine Lettuce works for a bun or just extra crunch on the side. I have to use a bunch more ahead prep to make staying on this easier. Still working out some of the kinks but the bread is no more, grains are no more, and working on getting closer to source with food. Good luck and keep learning it helps keep it fresh. emoticon

Depends on my mood but I always have boiled eggs and cooked bacon in the fridge so I can just grab & eat. Occasionally I'll cut an apple in half (coring the inside) cook in microwave for about 4-5 minutes until soft, then sprinkle with cinnamon, vanilla, & put almond butter in the middle so it melts (it's like a dessert)... or a coconut milk / berry shake... Left overs are good too since I usually don't eat "breakfast" until 10 am or sometimes later.
My motto is keep it simple most of the time but allow for some choices when it's needed...

No, I would need one of those high tech blenders to make my own almond butter and if I did that, I could just make my own almond milk with whole almonds as well as all sorts of...dang it, I need to get me one of those!

Something else for breakfast--I made the chicken curry cloufouti recipe from Mark's Daily Apple (Yum!), then was considering attempting a spin off recipe and decided to test it as an omelet first. I chopped up an apple, fried it in butter, then whisked a few eggs with apple pie spices and a little coconut milk, made it up as an omelet and drizzled a tiny bit of honey over the top after it was done. I may add some vanilla, chopped nuts and lemon peel to the next one. There's so much fun stuff you can do with omelets.

I like to grab a piece of fruit or a portion of dried fruit and a handful of nuts for breakfast. It isn't a high protein breakfast, but since I've gone paleo I don't have trouble waiting for lunch to hit the protein.

I also like to slice up an apple and put a few tablespoons of almond butter over it. Yummy.

A third breakfast option is a little borderline. I make a banana nog using 1/3 cup of coconut milk, a ripe banana, and pasteurized egg whites. I hate to miss out on the yolk, but I haven't found pasteurized shell eggs yet.

but I need a way to kill that bread. Of course I will add extra veggies too.

I'm going to make some hash per MDA www.marksdailyapple.com/root-

to sub in for the bread. I already have cubed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and a celery root. I know evil potatoes, but waste not want not. I kids will love them, and it will settle them about eating celery root...which I've never done myself.

This morning I made what I call the "Dutch breakfast" because they served it every morning when I lived in Amsterdam.

Sliced turkey breast and pieces of hard salami
Slices of Swiss and Cheddar cheese

Yes, this one has eggs, but it's a little different....

Basically, it's a hash, without potatoes, of course. Here's how to do it:

4 eggs (more if you're a larger person than I am)
oil for sauteing
large handful of leafy greens - spinach, chard, and kale work well
a bit of garlic, chopped
a bit of onion, chopped,
other veggies to round it out - I like red peppers, mushrooms, and carrots
leftover meat, if you have it (optional)

Hard boil the eggs. When done, peel them and discard 2 of the yolks. Roughly chop and set aside. Meanwhile, lightly saute all the veggies in a little oil.

Mix veggies with the eggs, hash style.

This morning I ate the eggs with red chard, garlic, grated carrots, and 2 slices of nitrate/nitrite free canadian bacon. And a side of green beans.

Sometimes I sprinkle a little cheese on it as well. Use your imagination and whatever you have in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Yeah, it's really easy, although it takes a long time. You soak some nuts or seeds from about 8-10 hours in water, then dry them out in an oven set on the lowest temperature. Sometimes you actually see them sprout, but usually you don't. Personally, I discovered that my stomach can't easily digest raw nuts -- there's an antinutrient in them that some people are sensitive to, and apparently I'm one of them! Sprouting them makes the antinutrient go away, and it also increases the health benefits of the nuts. But it's not actually necessary if you can digest them.

LOL, me too. I could pass on eggs for about a month now, and I loved them when I started paleo! I found a recipe that is just an apple, a banana, sprouted chopped almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, a handful of shredded coconut, and maybe a splash of almond or coconut milk if you'd like. I'm thinking of trying it.

I pre-make a bunch of mini-frittatas for breakfast. I just take whatever I have laying around -- this week it was lots of bacon, last week it was peppers and tomatoes, sometimes it's sausage -- cook it up, and then mix it in with eight beaten eggs. Then I fill up a muffin tin with the mixture, usually filling between 8 and 10 of the wells. I bake it at 375 for about 10 minutes, then just stick them in the refrigerator and grab two of them for breakfast throughout the week. My non-paleo husband loves them so much that he was actually sad the one week we ran out of eggs and I couldn't make them.

I made up a batch of homemade breakfast sausage today... some is in the freezer for later and about 15 patties are in the fridge for this week. I plan to have 2-3 tomorrow with some blueberries for breakfast. Yum!

Recovering from breast reduction surgery so exercise is on hold for now.

Starting a paleo/primal diet. Very low carbs, no grains, very little dairy. So far so good!

My usual breakfast except I use 1 egg and 1/4 cup of egg white. Top it with a simple tomato salsa and finish with a bowl of fresh fruit topped with blueberries. On the weekend we make poached eggs and lay them on thick slices of fresh tomato, sprinkle with herbs.
The book was written in 2002 before the dietary guidelines were changed to say that eating one or two eggs a day is just fine. The real culprit has always been the trans fats in commercial baked goods...MJ

SCRAMBLED BASIL EGGS W/ SALSA

2 omega 3-enriched eggs
1 tsp dried basil
2 T Anaheim Cilantro Salsa (see recipe in Snack Ideas)

Crack eggs into bowl, mix in basil. Scramble eggs in skillet. Serve topped with salsa.

* Recipe from The Paleo Diet book. Because the book recommends limiting eggs to 6/week, I will often use egg whites or egg substitute.*
