Breakfast can be one of the more frustrating meals when you first decide to follow a Paleo diet. Many of the so called “breakfast foods” like toast, bagels, muffins, pancakes, oatmeal and breakfast cereals are now off the menu.
Now is a good time to rethink what breakfast really means. Breakfast or “break fast” doesn’t mean pancakes or Cheerios, it simply means to break the fast your body has been on since your evening meal the night before. And that means anything goes. Leftovers from the night before. A salad. Some fruit. A traditional breakfast of steak and eggs or bacon and eggs or an omelette of course falls under the Paleo diet as well.
One of our favourite breakfasts here at FridgeForagers.com is simply to saute some onions and mushrooms along with some chopped up cooked steak from dinner the night before and serve over some scrambled or poached eggs. It takes, at most 10 minutes to make, and is a satisfying meal that will keep you going for hours without the mid-morning carb crash associated with grain heavy breakfasts like bagels or cereal.
