Paleo Breakfast Bowl with Pico de Gallo

Paleo Breakfast Bowl with Pico de Gallo

Breakfast is the most essential meal of the day, it is what gives us the much needed energy to get from start to finish. Even if you aren’t going full speed, you will need a good bowl of sustenance to begin with. We suggest filling it with cauliflower rice, free-range eggs, some slices of wholesome avocado and a dollop of classic Pico de Gallo salsa to liven up your morning.

Eggs can be controversial. We’re sure you’ve heard they are bad because they contain so much cholesterol and may contribute to heart disease, not to mention they are a possible allergen. Good news is this claim has since been debunked. Eggs are beneficial for your health and if they agree with you, try to get pastured eggs from chickens who are allowed to freely roam outside as they keep to their omnivore diet. If you can find all grain-free eggs, all the more power to your breakfast!

You can bring this Paleo breakfast bowl for lunch to the office too, in that case it is wise to hard boil the eggs to suit the commute to work better. If your wake-up routine includes a mug of coffee, explore your roast options and learn to enjoy it minimally; you could also make a pitcher of cold brew ahead of time, so you have a few extra minutes for cooking instead. When the weekend rolls around, another great, and elegant breakfast option is Eggs Benedict with ham.
