Egg free breakfast

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 20, 2011 at 6:28 PM

I love breakfast, love love love! With Paleo my breakfast is just not as much fun anymore. No more hot chocolate, no more bread with cheese, no more yogurt.

Most of the breakfast tip I find is left over dinner or egg breakfast and I don??t eat eggs not do I find left over dinner to substitute my love for breakfast.

What is your favorite egg-and-leftover-free breakfast?

Have a nice day!

Strawberries are very low sugar fruit. Just sayin. (Banana, not even close, but hey, _is_ only half of one!)

It's more like a breakfast cereal, since the coconut stays pretty firm. If you let it sit for a couple of hours, the coconut absorbs the moisture from the cream, and you get a delicious creamy coconut treat - bonus points for chilling it - but the coconut is still solid in it.

I often use it as a lunch often. I tend to eat meat when I'm at home, and eat other stuff when I'm on the go. I actually had someone ask if I was vegetarian, since she only saw me eat my coconut and cream, or heavily buttered vegetables. That was a good laugh.

a little bit of both. I'm kinda a chaotic IF'er - I probably IF 2-3 days a week, but only if I can't be bothered to try and find something and didn't bother to pack a lunch. I'd rather get an extra 30 min of sleep and rise with the sun, then eat breakfast. On those 1-off days where I wake up before the sun naturally and can't sleep anymore, I'll make breakfast.

When I just can't think about eggs for breakfast I make paleo "cereal"...nuts and berries in almond milk or greek yogurt, with a sprinkle of toasted coconut and some cinnamon on top. Yum. Otherwise I'm getting pretty used to leftovers. Had meatloaf and some kale soup the other morning. Rawrrr!

I'm a fan of 1 cup of shredded dried coconut in 6 table spoons of heavy cream (can substitute for coconut milk). I add in a little water to cut the thickness, but I enjoy eating it. It's got 76g of fat, so definitely an energy-packed breakfast.

I know this sounds strange and very unconventional, but I just ate a large dish of gelatin for breakfast. My tummy was rumbling and it was staring me down.

Last night, I combined 3/4 c tinned pumpkin, 1/2 cup water, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves, and three packets of plain gelatin in a small bowl. Heated up a cup of coconut milk until simmering, then poured it in and stirred. It sets in about two hours, and is very dense and thick. It was frikkin' incredible.

Here's a recipe for sausage biscuits that I love. I can't take credit for it - found it on a paleo site. If you are not into dried tomatoes, you can of course leave out those and make other minor changes.

These are yummy!

4 eggs 1/4 c. virgin palm oil (or lard or ghee or coconut oil) 1/4 tsp. Utah salt 1/4 tsp. onion powder or grated onion, opt. 1/8 - 1/4 c. minced scallions (or shallots or white onions) 1/2 c. coconut flour, sifted 1/4 tsp. baking soda (Aluminum free) 1/2 c. organic sundried tomatoes 4 to 8 oz. sausage or ground beef/bison sauteed with sundried tomatoes and some tomato or fave spaghetti sauce until semi-dry but mildly moist (I like Mario Batali's sauces)

Blend together eggs, oil, salt and onion. Combine coconut flour with baking soda and whisk into batter until there are no lumps. Fold in minced sundried tomatoes and sausage. Let the batter rest for 4-5 min to thicken. Drop batter by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper), 2 in. apart. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 min.

Makes 8 biscuits.

There are some great "foodie" paleo sites and low carb sites which have good gluten free, paleo friendly recipes. Check this one out for the pancake recipe and more. There's a great pizza recipe on this one too that I use!

I had one of those moments this morning. Just wasn't in the mood for eggs. Often I will have coffee or tea with a fair amount of heavy cream and that will keep me going until lunch. Today I decided to "cheat" and had a half cup of blueberries with about 3 Tbsp of heavy cream, whipped. Another alternative is a small amount (1/4-1/2 cup) of full-fat, unsweetened yogurt (like good Greek yogurt) with fruit and a few nuts, maybe with some cream added.

I am a dedicated carnivore / protein lover but sometimes, especially for breakfast, I need to take a break from it.

coconut milk with some whey protein (yeah I know, not paleo but occasionally it's a nice break,) Acai puree, and banana (I also put in egg yolks and half an egg shell but you don't have to if you want egg free. It's just an easy way to get the good vitamins in the eggs without having to have another darn fried egg.)

I can do steak and guacamole for pretty much any meal.

But I also tend to go for nitrate free bacon and tomatoes... especially fresh ugly heirloom tomatoes with fresh cracked black pepper.

Some days I'll just eat a couple homemade sausages, maybe with some kimchi.

Most weekdays I skip breakfast tho...

It sounds like you're relatively new to Paleo, and thus unaccustomed to facing down large lumps of fat and protein at the breakfast table. I suggest that you ease into with Paleo-friendly versions of traditional breakfast items, and up the straight fat/protein as you progress.

It's still undecided whether or not dairy is harmful or even beneficial, so whilst you're transitioning you might find it helpful to include some - just make sure that it's high quality - and then later do an elimination test.

I would suggest:

Full fat Greek yoghurt/coconut kefir and berries.

Smoothies made with coconut milk, good quality protein powder, fruit and even neutral-tasting greens like raw spinach.

A grain-free continental style platter e.g. a selection of fruits, cheeses and sliced deli meats or other cold deli items like preserved roasted peppers.

You won't taste the egg used as a binder in Paleo breakfast treats, like gluten free pancakes or breads. I suggest heading over to Elana's Pantry for some easily Paleo-ified gluten free ideas.

http://www.elanaspantry.com/

Finally, you don't have to give up hot chocolate!

Just make up a cup with plain cocoa powder and hot water, and then top up with a splash of heavy cream for sweetness and flavour. Utterly delicious and probably actually quite healthy due to the polyphenol content.

In this case, I think 18% BF is 18% Butter Fat

Kippers! Before My Kellogg tried to save us from the evils of masturbation (I kid you not), the world was more than happy to eat fish for breakfast. I think it's an excellent source of healthy nutrients and quite satisfying -- fish that is, not corn flakes!

During summer, I love nectarines, strawberries and cantelope doused in coconut milk. You could stick the coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours and whip it with a hand mixer and spinkle some crushed macadamias on top. I usually get most of my cooking ideas from Melissa Joulwan on http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com. She's amazing. I know you said no leftovers, but the hotplate ideas in her cookbook would make an excellent breakfast also.

There's a good recipe on Livestrong for paleo banana apple muffins. I toss some coconut into the recipe too (I put coconut in everything these days, it seems), and they make a nice cheaty-feeling breakfast.

I love to blend. This is my favorite variation of a green smoothie: - 1/2 Banana - 3 Strawberries - 1 Large Leaf of Kale (sometimes 2) - 1C Almond Milk - 1/2C(ish) Greek Yogurt (I will never turn my back on this guy...for better or worse!) - 1 Scoop Whey (ON for me) - 1/2 Avocado

Although you will get some sugar from the demonized banana and strawberries, I find this breakfast blend to be the perfect way to start my day.

Strawberries are very low sugar fruit. Just sayin. (Banana, not even close, but hey, _is_ only half of one!)

bacon wrapped in swiss cheese with red peppers lettuce wraps with bacon and tomato

do you have a problem with eggs? can you eat them cooked into things?

i like almond flour bacon cheddar scones a lot for a treat. but there are eggs in that.

i also sometimes just eat an entire thing of cottage cheese and then im good til night time.

I can eat eggs, especially if they are cooked in to things. I just have a silly (read stupid) thing about the egg consistency.

I know a lot of folks who don???t eat eggs (they???re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here???s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

It's unlikely that many folks here will find a bunch of conventional (albeit egg-free) recipes terribly useful. I didn't down-vote you, but I did flag you for spamming.
