My kids are fed up with eggs and bacon which they have valiantly eaten every morning for the past year or so, they are now down to bread and butter, even though my husband and I still have the full english breakfast we love.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a paleo breakfast that is a little different, not heavily based on eggs, (nor is spicy) and is easy to prepare?

thanks

as many eggs as you can hold in one hand. (per meal)

It's totally harmless to some people but not others, I get digestive problems from rice.

white rice is not strictly paleo, but totally harmless. Milk is accepted by many in the paleo community, and you can add coconut milk to make it yummy. Good luck!

We have pancakes sometimes, this is a good idea - and I like the idea of yoghurt especially with berries and nuts although I do not like buying fruit out of season!

Should be easy for an adult to say - but kids kinda expect something 'breakfasty', guess that is my fault for setting the 'breakfast trend' early on. They just want sugar basically ;)

7063 · March 02, 2011 at 5:56 PM

great idea, but unfortunately they do not go for veggies much. I like the idea of soup though - thanks.

sounds gross, but good way to get the eggs in there somehow - can you taste the eggs in it, or does it have a slimy texture?

7063 · March 02, 2011 at 5:54 PM

this one is good - not paelo, but in my opinion, nearer to paleo than bread.....and the kids will eat it!

Give up the notion of certain foods being for breakfast and eat anything.

Here's a rundown of ideas.

  1. Leftovers (nothing says breakfast foods have to be eaten for breakfast)

  2. Nutbased "Oatmeal" hot cereals (Noatmeal and Fauxtmeal)

  3. Similarly you could try Nomnompaleo's trailmix as cold cereal and also toss various nuts and dried fruit in or out of the mix (though I wouldn't do 2 or 3 everyday.)

  4. If you do dairy, Greek Yogurt + any of the following: nuts, berries, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, pumpkin+pumpkin pie spice.

  5. Breakfast Smoothie - (could be based on coconut milk, heavy cream, or greek yogurt) - plus fruit, spinach, raw eggs (make sure they're fresh to lessen concerns about salmonella)

  6. Treat breakfast like any other meal (which is what I do when I eat breakfast) - so just meat plus veggies in any number of ways.

Bonus: You can actually shred cauliflower into hashbrown like shreds and fry those up and serve with various breakfast or not breakfast foods. (I personally love cauliflower so I don't mind that it only resembles potatoes in looks but not too much in terms of taste). You could ever make a type of loaded hashbrowns by mixing in whatever you love.

Edit: Here are some new ideas that incoporate some eggs but are not eggy. Like the "Oatmeal" or "Cereal" listed as 2 or 3, I wouldn't recommend them as staples since they will be kind of calorically dense, but one of these sure could break the monotony of bacon and eggs everyday.

  1. You can do pancakes a variety of ways here are ones with almond meal base, almond butter and banana or pumpkin base, coconut flour base, or a sweet potato base. I've tried the first two recipes and I really liked them.

  2. Paleo Banana Bread!

  3. Paleo Biscuit Sandwiches! I think there are links to paleo appropiate gravies out there - meaning you could do biscuits and gravy.

Now I think I might be out of ideas.

Just discovered this today and it is so good:

cook a sweet potato in the microwave, and while it is cooking separate 2-3 egg yolks (I discard the whites).

when sweet potato is ready, slice it open lengthwise and add the egg yolks raw while the potato is hot so it will steam them. Mash them all around to get the yolks distributed and get a yummy consistency. Then of course I add a pat of pastured butter for good measure.

Amazingly good and also convenient if you have to eat something at work and all you have is a microwave to work with---no dishes required!

My kids get sick of eggs & bacon everyday. My middle school age daughter's will skip breakfast easily (or grab a banana out the door), but my 10 year old son always wants breakfast. I try to keep him "no grains" but will allow fruit and/or smoothie's made with yogurt and fruit on day's that he is sick of eggs. About 8 out of 10 days are eggs for breakfast w/ bacon.

None of my kids like typical "dinner" foods for breakfast, just aren't used to it. Now, had they grown up Paleo that would be easier, but since I have been paleo for little over a year, they don't think any other meat/left over sounds good.

I think it's okay for my daughter's to skip breakfast if they want to. (IF ?) I always do. They have good grades in school and have energy for after school sports.

Your kids probably won't like this but I've got breakfast figured out.

1/2lb ground animal - so far I've done beef, bison, lamb, turkey and wild boar (on different days). Saute with salt and pepper, add a dash of lemon just as it's almost finished. Serve in a bowl with a spoon - it's savory, salty, delicious, quick, easy, Paleo cereal! At least that's what I call it, to myself, as I enjoy it.

Ever since going primal, there's no more boundaries for my food..any food can be eaten at anytime. I had left over roast beef, roast masala lamb, curry chicken etc for my bfast. So freaking good and super filling :D and easy!

Rice pudding with cinnamon (use any sweetener you accept) is very popular with children in most parts of the world, it is easy to make and will keep your kids gluten free!

Just eat what ever! "breakfast food" is just a marketing ploy. There are no rules. Eat what you would any other time of the day.

Latkes made with various vegetables other than potatoes - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/vegetable-latkes/ and http://www.primal-palate.com/2010/12/yellow-squash-latkes.html

If you eat some starch, make hash with sweet potatoes, red peppers, onions and whatever chopped up left over meat.

Soups are eaten for breakfast in many countries. I like Thai coconut soup - Tom kha gai - just google, many recipes. Chili, beef stew or whatever leftovers you have around.

I also like salad for breakfast. Lots of leaves, avocado, salmon or steak, salsa, lime juice. Wilted spinach with some hot fried eggs and roast beef strips on top is amazingly good.

How old are your kids? Get them involved in planning and preparing breakfasts.

Greek yoghurt with macadamia nuts and berries? Full-fat of course. There are plenty of recipes on the internet for coconut or almond flour pancakes. These come to mind, or these waffles and pancakes. How about a chocolate banana coconut milk ice cream? I imagine that would make a lovely breakfast if you made it as a smoothie rather than sticking it in the ice-cream maker, and perhaps left out the honey (maybe substitute some berries for sweetness). Coconut milk when left to cool in the fridge tends to solidify somewhat; scoop out this 'cream' and mix it with nuts and berries, or use it in smoothies.

Chocolate avocado pudding!

Or, something more savoury like these bacon and avocado 'sandwiches'. Mmmm, primal breakfast casserole.

Homemade burgers or sausages? Last night's leftovers! Steak for breakfast!

The possibilities are endless!

I have 2 fabvourite breakfasts which don't involve eggs:

1) I do a "paleo cereal" which involves a mixture of macadamia nuts, blueberries and some coconut milk or coconut cream poured over - I eat this almost every day (sometimes use different nuts or sometimes omit the berries).

2) I make a loaf of almond bread then have a few slices spread with a mix of coconut cream and blueberries (if you mix this and refrigerate it the mixture becomes thick and spreadable) - YUM! Sprinkle some cinnamon on sometimes too.......... mmmm breakfast

I know most of the responses from Louisa are that her kids are tired of meat, eggs, etc. and are looking for something sweet. I can't help with that much. I workout first thing in the morning and eat when I get to work. My staple meal is pork loin with usually butternut or acorn squash (both fairly sweet btw, especially if add cinnamon). Sometimes, I will eat organic, low processed chicken sausages. Some do come flavored with a touch of maple syrup or apples added. I have these sometimes but don't need the extra sugar. Pork loin. Yum. Not "pastured" but considering it is very lean protein, I don't sweat it much.

I like coconut milk smoothies (coconut milk blended with frozen bananas and either berries or peanut butter and cocoa).

Coconut milk paleo pudding (basically just whip the hell out of a can of coconut milk, cocoa and sweetener, and peppermint extract if you want, then refrigerate).

Paleo pancakes: about 1/4 cup pureed fruit (I like home pureed nectarine, but individual apple sauce cups work fine, or banana), 2-3 eggs, 1 TBS almond butter, a little cinnamon, a little vanilla extract, and some chocolate chips. Cooked in a lot of butter or coconut oil

Food Renegade's coconut flour and almond flour banana bread: http://www.foodrenegade.com/almond-flour-banana-brea/ Her's is too dry for me, but I haven't posted my version of her recipe yet. What I did was halve her recipe (to make only one loaf), but then added 1 egg, 1 banana, and used a whole stick of butter instead of coconut oil. If you're interested, I can post up my exact measurements or actually put up my post using my measurements and link up later. It's fantastic with a thick layer of pastured butter, and is at least a grain free bread and butter, though a bit higher in sugar content than regular bread.

I usually attach bacon to all of the above. :-)

I blend coconut milk, broccoli, celery, n occasionally a few carrots into a breakfast drink that I have with my 4 eggs scrambled in ghee. My kids love the drink n occasionally we add a few berries as well. Very filling.

Try eggs in different forms!

Poached eggs are amazing and a perfect opportunity to introduce veggies underneath the eggs for breakfast.

since having been 'infected' by paleo-leangains paradigm i have lost the ability to grasp the very idea of breakfast (as something eaten early in the morning) - it even scares me just like even a modicum of fat scares low-fat dogma believers

My favorite breakfast is a seared steak with some avocado or almonds and cold fruit. If they don't mind eggs cooked a different way you can make a quiche without the crust (or with a nut flour crust). I load it with meat and veggies but you can also put apples on top so they caramelize a bit and add a bit of sweetness. You can also just ask them what they want, paleo-hack it if it isn't paleo, and work it into the breakfast routine.

Or, like many of the answers above have said, just make non-'breakfast' foods! Pulled pork on a brie omelette is hard to beat

Meat & nuts (a small hand full. Very Charles Poliquin. Or a nice warming stew that you made the day before. I tend to make a couple on a Sunday(Jamie Oliver has sme good refilled, Jools favorite stew & his Chilli Con, minus the beans).
