Paleo Breakfast Recipes and Ideas for a Great Start to Your Day (2024)

When I was first introduced to what a Paleo diet was and decided to try some Paleo breakfast recipes, I thought I would be only eating eggs with fruit every morning. I decided to do some research and was pleasantly surprised to findso many differentrecipes that look good are easy to make, healthy and don't have a huge list of ingredients.

Although, a suggestion to you that is often overlooked for a fantastic breakfast is leftovers. Yep. Make a little extra dinner and enjoy it the next day. I know this doesn't always work though so that's why I have all these other suggestions for you.

Paleo Breakfast Recipes and Ideas for a Great Start to Your Day (1)

One of my favorite Paleo recipes is for muffins. I like to make those up one day when I have a little more time and then eat the leftovers for the next few mornings. The Paleo flours, like coconut flour and almond flour combine with eggs to make a very filling muffin that will keep you satisfied until lunch.

I don't know about you, but I am definitely not a morning person and when it comes to eating breakfast, that is whatgets left out. Not Good! I really do hate making breakfast but I know also that it truly is the most important meal of the day.

I know that making anything Paleo isn't usually quick and easy because it takes much more preparation than just picking up a box of cereal at the store. Quick and easy are relative, meaning that quick and easy to one person will mean something totally different to another person.

Quick and easy ideas from other readers on my Facebook Group
