My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?

Eat whatever works for you. There is no rule that your breakfast must contain meat or eggs.

I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.
