• Eggless Paleo Breakfast Ideas

    September 18, 2013

    Sick of eggs for breakfast? I bet some of you Paleo people are! Sometimes, they seem like the only thing for breakfast, right?

    My CrossFit box recently started a new Paleo challenge and one of my CrossFit friends said she is already sick of eggs for breakfast, so her comment inspired this post.

    If you’re tired of the same old egg breakfast or maybe you have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs, here are a bunch of eggless ideas for you!

    Paleo Granola

    This Paleo Granola has recently made a serious comeback in my regular breakfast rotation. I mix it in applesauce, mashed sweet potato, and sprinkle it on fresh fruit all the time. It’s so easy to make and there are a million different ingredient variations, so you can customize it to your tastes preferences. I typically make a big batch at the beginning of the week, so I have an easy breakfast on deck every morning.

    Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl

    This is the easiest breakfast ever. Just add canned pumpkin, mashed sweet potatoes, or your favorite kind of squash to a bowl and then top it with sliced banana (or any other fruit you like) and a scoop of nut butter. It’s a healthy breakfast in no time at all!

    Chicken Sausage with Butternut Squash and Apples

    Now that fall is just about here, I see myself eating this breakfast a lot more often!

    Butternut Squash with Apple and Bacon

    Similar to the recipe above but with bacon!

    Sweet Potato Hash

    This recipe is actually a dinner recipe, but it’s awesome reheated for breakfast!

    Banana Apple Crisp with Vanilla Coconut Cream

    Yum! This dish is almost like eating dessert for breakfast!

    Pumpkin, Almond Butter, and Paleo Granola

    I had some leftover canned pumpkin, so I mixed it with a huge spoonful of almond butter, pumpkin pie spice, and some honey. Then, I nuked it all in the microwave for 60 seconds and topped it with Paleo granola. It was SO GOOD!

    Cinnamon-Coconut Bananas with Fresh Blueberries

    Gooey bananas cooked in coconut oil and topped with fresh fruit—holy yum! It’s delicious, nutritious, and comforting. I’ll usually add a spoonful of nut butter too.

    Turkey Burger and Veggies

    This might not be the most exciting breakfast, but a grilled turkey burger with some cooked veggies (and, ok, maybe some Ants on a Log) is a tasty meal. Actually, any meat + veggie dish (dinner leftovers?) makes a healthy and satisfying breakfast.

    Coconut Almond Butter Smoothie

    Oh, how I love this smoothie! It’s delicious, nutritious, and so, so satisfying—it’ll easily keep you full until lunchtime!

    Blueberry Pie

    I originally whipped up this recipe as a single-serving dessert, but you could easily double (or triple) the recipe and eat it for breakfast.

    Almond Yogurt with Sliced Banana and Almonds

    Is almond yogurt Paleo? Maybe? Probably not? I dunno, but here’s a non-egg, maybe Paleo breakfast idea!

    Question of the Day

    What’s your favorite eggless breakfast (Paleo or not)?

    P.S. For those of you dealing with GI and/or autoimmune issues, I recently listened to a couple of episodes of the Health Nuts Podcast that were really interesting and helpful. Just wanted to share: “All About Digestive Health” with Steve Wright from SCD Lifestyle and “Autoimmune Paleo Protocol” with The Paleo Mom.

    I love granola and have never made it with almond meal. Thanks for the idea! Also, if you do make your own pumpkin purée, what brands do you like/buy? Thanks!!

    I like Libby’s, but that’s pretty much the only choice around here. I like the Whole Food’s brand too.

    @Tina: Thanks Tina. I will check out both. In the past, if I didn’t have time to roast my own I’d go for the organic one from Trader Joes. Good flavor and nice color, but want to try some new brands.

    It’s funny that I opened this to read it while I was eating breakfast. My box is doing that paleo challenge too, and today I had a baked sweet potato (I made an extra last night while cooking dinner) with almond butter and it was incredible.

    I still love eggs for breakfast, I bet you could do a whole other post just on the different ways to prepare and eat eggs. That said I love the look of all of these, especially the pumpkin. I was just at the store and saw pumpkin is now on the shelves and I thought to myself, “Hmm what would be a good way to prepare that…” Now I have one! Thanks

    Tina, I love that you’re getting into Paleo stuff! My husband and I have been Paleo since March and breakfast is ALWAYS eggs! Thanks for the tips!

    I also have to say that Blueberry Pie for One is a HUGE hit at my house. It’s super fast, really easy and is AMAZING. Since blueberries aren’t in season much right now, we made this with raspberries and agreed it tasted in a deconstructed peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

    Thanks for this post!

    Since developing a sensitivity to eggs and poultry, I’ve had trouble knowing just what to do about breakfast. Especially when I’m whipping up a lovely frittata or omelette for my husband. So I’ve started pan-frying a thinly sliced steak (grass-fed of course) with veges and/or fruit. I also raid the fridge for whatever leftovers are there. Chili’s not just for dinner anymore :)
