Paleo Breakfast Ideas To Keep Mornings Exciting

December 6, 2011

There’s something that’s been bothering me for a while now. Why is it that most bodybuilding or weight lifting articles you read are always geared toward men? I guess not really geared toward men as much as directed toward men.

For example, last night I was looking up information on bodybuilding competitions (because why not? Fun info to read about). All the side linked articles were, “Top 12 Men’s Topics,” “Men’s Best Super Foods,” “Men’s Weight Lifting Guide…” etc. Where are the women’s articles?

I dunno, it just bothers me that just because most gym’s weight areas are deemed Man Caves, women aren’t always included. Just because once upon a time men ruled the Olympic Lifting Arena? I think CrossFit may have a lot to do with an increase in Lifting-Chicks, or maybe it’s just a little more “in” for women to be strong and to hold their own ground. Either way, I guess it’s just our womanly duty to run in and take over every Man Cave in the world. Sorry guys. πŸ˜‰ (Oh I can see you all cringing now!)

Anyway, today we’re not talking weight lifting… not really. We’re talking food. My tangent is over.

We have all been told many times that breaking the fast, that is breakfast, is uber important to start any day.

In need of some variety to your breakfast of eggs, eggs, and probably more eggs? Oh, I know we all need ideas for variety, especially to balance the nutrients we’re getting to fuel our bodies properly.

Here are some ideas for those following a Paleo-lifestyle and starting out the day with the most important meal of the day: Breakfast! (in absolutely no rhyme or reason order…)

Green Smoothies (like below) or a Morning Cinna-Roll Smoothie

Buffalo Brunch Crepes

Cherry-Zucchini Banana Bread

Pumpkin Swirl Banana Bread

Absolutely delicious Blackberry Bars

Paleo Breakfast Bake

Paleo Eggs Over-easy Over Meat

Paleo Protein Waffles (below), Almond Coconut Waffles, Chocolate Coffee Pancakes, or Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Chia Almond Paleo Bars

“PB” Banana Muffins

Soon-to-be Paleo-ized (aka: honey-sweetened version) Blueberry Lemon Coconut Muffins

Thai Chicken Burger (hello, who said you can’t have dinner for breakfast?!)

Last but certainly not least, as there are SO many options, leftovers, and ideas out there, are eggs. Of course eggs are a crazy-great addition for breakfast as they are loaded with nutrients, one of the best sources of high quality amino acids that your body can readily use for muscle growth (along with fat burning potential!), and all that healthy fat your eyes, hair, nails, hormone function, and brain uses and needs.

Whenever I eat egg scrambled, they’re over plenty of greens and always loaded with veggies. Try adding a good helping of vegetables at the very end of cooking, as raw veggies are key to any thriving diet.

And of course, all of these ideas are great, but let’s be honest, how many times have we just eaten leftovers for breakfast and called it good (or great, depending on what you had for dinner the night before!)??

Use any leftover for a Dinner-For-Breakfast idea, just scramble with an egg, veggies, or sweet potato or squash and call it a day…Β or morning, I guess.

Happy Tuesday! What do you eat for breakfast?

Tell me at least one recipe you’d like to see on this blog. I need ideas, people! πŸ˜‰ This blog can’t be sustained on just my brain alone. Well, actually it can, but I love hearing what YOU want!
