Breakfast is much more than Paleo granola and smoothies. It is crispy slices of bacon when you are craving a salty protein, and apple pie muffins when all you desire is a bite from a delicious cloud of heaven. A Paleo breakfast is anything, and everything, that you want to eat in the morning hours, it can even manifest itself as a slice of leftover roast with gravy and mashed sweet potatoes.
More often than not, an egg is involved in the breakfast scene – it is nature’s perfect food. Eggs are excellent sources of protein which help to get you going before daybreak, they are also full of zinc, iron and copper. Additionally they are wonderful sources of vitamin D, B6 and B12. The best way to get your vitamins is to eat them, and an egg, or two, is a great way to start the day. That being said, eat your eggs responsibly and in the first instance opt for pastured eggs from a local farm. Not only do they taste amazing, you are supporting sustainable agriculture. Next best is from the store – search for free-range eggs with the most Omega-3s, to support your health and wellbeing. And of course, mind your vegetables too!
Skillet breakfasts for one are as energy-giving as the bulletproof coffee you have next to it! When cooking for an early morning crowd, up the eggs to 6, and join in conversation and mugs all around the table.
