Breakfast Ideas for a Paleo Diet

It is a wonder that in today society, with all of our breakthroughs in medicine and technology, that the majority of the developed world suffer from weight problems and living a healthy lifestyle. Worse still, there is so much misinformation out there it is hard to know what to believe and what is nonsense. Many of us could become more fit and interactive in life if we just had a strict routine to follow in terms of our fitness and welfare. Many of the most common health problems people suffer from is by not having a cohesive idea of what they should and should not be eating. The Paleo diet is a new but quickly growing diet which is being recommended by many people as a good starting point for a new health regime. You can make almost anything, even Paleo Mayonnaise.

However, getting into a diet like a Paleo diet can be tough due to needing such specific plans about what you are going to eat and what you can eat on a daily basis. Many guidelines are very generic and it can leave you struggling for creativity and therefore it is much harder to stick to a routine. If you need help getting started on a Paleo diet, then try out some of these breakfast ideas – you can build from there. Any meal in a Paleo diet must be food that was hunted or gathered, so this included any type of;

  • Meat
  • Egg
  • Fish
  • Nut
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Roots
  • Berries

This means that despite limiting yourself, you still have a pretty huge amount of selection out there, so getting creative should not be a problem. You have to be sure you are avoiding things like grains, oils, sugar, salt and dairy, these are all post-agricultural foods which goes beyond what the Paleo diet is about.

Monday – If you are used to cereal on a Monday morning before work, try a mix of nuts and berries with some coconut milk, which is allowed. This is quick and cheap to make, and lovely too.

Tuesday – Go for something a little more daring, like an egg & tomato stir-fry, with some green onion cooked into it. This will keep you going with a lot of energy until lunch.

Wednesday – Egg with salsa and avocado is a good way to start your day – it will brighten you up for sure. It’s very quick to make and the ingredients are simply sourced. Use 2 eggs on a medium heat, and then include a quarter avocado.

Thursday – I recommend trying some banana almond pancakes – this is a lovely recipe and tastes just as good as any normal pancake. Add one egg and one tablespoon of almond butter, then mash in two bananas. Add some coconut oil and cook the batter on a medium heat. Add some blueberries if you like to give them some extra flavor.

Friday – try a coconut milk smoothie. To do this, add some coconut milk into a blender and add the fruits that you want. Add some nut butter in too, to create a nice smooth aftertaste. If you feel it needs it, add some vanilla extract (a few drops) to add some extra zest.

Saturday – Sweet potatoes will do the trick here, go for some sweet potatoes which have been grated to a tablespoon of coconut oil. Cook until it is softened, and then add a quarter tablespoon of cinnamon.

Sunday – It’s the last day of the week, so go for some steak and eggs in the morning. This meal will give you plenty of energy and see you through until a later lunch. Cook the steak as you like, it really is up to you how you like your steak!  Paleo diets are extremely good for you and can put you on a more healthy mindset – it is does not need to be so tough to come up with ideas, either!
