Paleo Challenge Day 13 – Eggs, Eggs, Eggs

As I have mentioned previously, breakfast can be one of the hardest meals to find something Paleo to eat. I think that, especially my generation, have been brought up on wheat cereals that we struggle when we try and think of alternates. I know I initially did.

There is always eggs! Well actually I’d choose them any time I was struggling for something to cook. If I couldn’t think of anything for lunch I’d whip up some scrabbled eggs, it didn’t matter that I had had eggs for brekky right? Right. Unless you have an allergy to them, you will be using a lot of eggs. I have my own chooks in the backyard and still have to buy eggs.

With Paleo cooking you are using more of them in your baking than you might if you were using other flours. For instance, ‘regular’ pancakes might use one egg, Paleo might use three. They are more than just a binding agent, they give your baking more substance.

So you need to think about all the ways that you can use eggs, especially for breakfast. For me, simple is the best.

Of course with Paleo eating bacon is highly encourage…omg I love this way of eating! And nothing goes better with eggs than bacon, right? Make sure to use the bacon to substitute bread with your poached eggs, along with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms. Or add your favourite ingredients to an omelette or those easy scrabbled eggs.

Here is my all time favourite breakfast recipe using…you guessed it…eggs.
