Non-egg breakfast ideas?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 17, 2012 at 12:50 PM

I don't want to eat eggs EVERYDAY, right? Another favorite breakfast is pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds and flax with a smushed banana and coconut oil. Devine! But any other non-egg options?

I use my leftovers for dinners. If I used them for breakfast, then I'd have to make more dinners, which I don't have time for.

By skipping a meal occasionally, and doing an intermittent fast, you allow yourself to become more proficient at fat-burning, and you will generally improve your insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. There are also studies that show IF can promote cellular repair rather than reproduction, which might have a positive effect on telemere length in promoting longevity. do you need more details?

Agreed. Although this morning my leftovers were very much a 'conventional' breakfast as it was a paleo-quiche. But I've had chicken, fish, etc for breakfast.

And to enjoy this you also get the added value of buying the big, cheap cuts of mean and have several meals for the cost of one smaller cut. I saw rib chops for $11.99 per pound, and the entire rib roast was $3.99 per pound. So instead of $12 for two servings, I paid $12 for 8 servings

Agreed. We have a cultural paradigm here that says breakfast = cereal, toast, bagel, etc. And when you don't eat those things, breakfast = bacon & eggs. So sad! What's wrong with leftover pot roast for breakfast? Or chicken & veg? Seriously -- don't think of it as "breakfast." It's really just *a meal,* and a meal = real food. We've all eaten cold pizza for breakfast back in the day (aaah, college...), so what's wrong with a pork chop?

Leftovers from the day before. This morning I had a hamburger on top of leafy greens. I always cook extra so there are things that can be quickly thrown together for a meal. I've also thrown a chunk of meat into the crock pot before bed and woke up to a tender brisket, pork roast for shredding, or a whole chicken falling off the bone. There is no need to stay in the "breakfast food" mindset. Just eat food!

Just eat what you'd normally eat for any other meal.

I may be wrong, but I think it's just a cultural thing that certain foods are 'breakfast' foods and others aren't. I'll often have stew or something similar in the morning, either leftovers or I'll put something together to go in the slow cooker the previous evening so it's ready first thing in the morning.

It seems a little wierd at first but you soon get used to it.

These are not quite paleo but great occasionally.
Blueberry Crepes - 3 eggs, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 Tablespoon maple syrup and pinch of flour(whatever you use: coconut, almond, etc.) Butter your pan, pour in half of batter and toss some blueberries on top.

When I have a hankering for "breakfast foods," I love Paleo Cereal - a handful of strawberries, blueberries, walnuts, perhaps a cut up banana with some almond milk.

I like to make "muffins" out of some fruit, eggs,, coconut flour, and some flavorings. I know you didn't want eggs but when they're in muffins, it helps.

Apart from what the others said, leftovers/just normal food (AND steak, that needs extra mentioning!), gluten free beef and/or lamb sausages with stir fried vegetables (sauerkraut is a really amazing addition) plus some extra fruits, e.g. (green) bananas fried in coconut oil or just some berries, is simply amazing.

i think i may almost like sushi for breakfast more than any other time of day.

and thats just talking about regular sushi, ive seen some breakfast sushi recipes too

could also do salmon, coconut rice rolls wrapped in mango and avocado, or something of the sort. but all of that is assuming that you eat white rice.

Just skip breakfast every now and then and use it as an opportunity for an intermittent fast.
