Paleo Diet Breakfast: For most people, breakfast is when they consume a lot of carbohydrates and modern processed foods. The typical breakfast is usually cereal or oatmeal, with milk. For those who are on the paleo diet, this fare is strictly a no-no; as you know, the basic principle of this diet is to refrain from eating dairy, grains, and starchy vegetables. For paleo diet breakfast recipes, the main nutrient is typically protein, with some fat and carbohydrates on a lower proportion. Probably the easiest and most common paleo diet breakfast recipes I see consist of some version of bacon and eggs.
Despite the various limitations imposed by the paleo diet, paleo diet breakfast recipes can still be varied and flavourful. In fact, a carefully-chosen paleo diet breakfast recipe provides all of the energy and sustenance you would need to see you through the first part of the day, with none of the energy peaks and dips usually experienced on a “modern” breakfast.
For a quick and easy paleo diet breakfast recipe, play around with the many ways that you can prepare egg. For example, have an omelette containing lots of mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and spinach. Up the ante by topping it with some freshly-made salsa and sliced avocados to supply you with the good kind of fats. If you are really hankering for meats, serve with a side of sausage and bacon.
For those who really do crave their usual pancakes in the morning, you can still have them for breakfast but instead of grain flour, you would need to make it with almond flour to make it paleo diet-compliant. Here are some paleo diet breakfast recipes and options you could try out:

Simply mix together all of these ingredients and cook the batter as you usually do. Or, try these other breakfast ideas:
Paleo diet breakfast 1: leftover meat (or if you have none, just deli meat), fruit, and a cup of coffee
Paleo diet breakfast 2: 4 eggs (cooked any way), 1 onion cooked in olive oil, 1 orange, a cup of coffee
Paleo diet breakfast 3: 4 eggs (cooked any way), steamed spinach, 3 to 4 slices of fruit such as pineapple or melon, a handful of nuts, and a cup of coffee
For a hassle-free paleo diet breakfast that you can eat on the go, simply make a smoothie out of your favourite fruits, and almond or coconut milk.
