Keeping Food Simple

I'm sitting at work waiting for people to get back to me and looking at pinterest for paleo recipes.  It occurred to me that breakfast is my laziest meal.  I'll gladly make myself a cup of coffee or two, but making food in the morning is a pain in the butt.

Instead of looking at various new things - most of which aren't paleo, despite their claims - I thought I'd share my favorite breakfast options with you.  Some of these can be found in my list of recipes.

  • 2 Eggs, Scrambled with leftover veggies
  • Protein Shake, basic
  • Protein Shake, pumpkin spice
  • Protein Shake, berries
  • 2 Eggs, Omelet
  • 1 slice Ham and 1 Egg with leftover veggies
  • 1 Pink Grapefruit
  • 3 Baked Eggs (egg, ham, spinach) baked in a muffin tin
  • Crustless Quiche, personal size - made in ramekin
  • Paleo Granola
  • Chia Seed Pudding, any flavor
  • Parmesan-crusted Tilapia with leftover veggies (Tilapia cooks up quickly)
  • Egg Nests
  • Paleo Cake Doughnuts (made using Simple Mills cake mix)
  • Poached Egg and Smoked Salmon on Spinach or Arugula with Mustard Dressing
  • Leftovers
Some folks are always like "fish for breakfast?!"  Yes.  I don't mind fish for breakfast.  I usually prefer tilapia or smoked salmon.  I'm in Alaska, so the majority of our smoked salmon is hot smoked, rather than cold smoked (aka Lox).  I do like both.

I used to make smoothies all the time with fruits and veggies mixed together, but I've been moving away from that.  I feel like I was getting too many carbs or something.  I don't think it was helping me.  I generally just have a basic protein shake - vanilla whey and water.  I suck it down while my coffee is brewing.  I like having it after working out.  The last few days I've been following it up with 2 eggs scrambled with leftover veggies.

If you are interested in the cake doughnuts, right now I only recommend using Simple Mills cake mix.  I've tried a few others and they just weren't as good.  I also recommend making them the night before.  You can let them cool down, then toss them into a container.  It's really nice for a quick grab-n-go breakfast.
