You know what they say: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it is not about popular breakfast items like cereal with milk or eggs and toast when you are living a Paleo lifestyle. If you think it is difficult to prepare a Paleo breakfast, think again! In fact, there are countless breakfast ideas that are suitable for those who are eating a Paleo diet. Not only are they delicious, they are also far from boring.
The Paleo diet in a nutshell
Otherwise known as “eating like a caveman,” the Paleo diet involves eating animals, plants, seeds, and nuts. Thousands of years ago, humans’ bodies thrived on real, whole food that was free of preservatives, chemicals, and artificial anything. They did not eat sugary desserts or drink soda. They hunted and gathered their plants and meat, exerting energy as they did so. The main staple of their diet was vegetables, fruits, and animal meat. You can plainly see why this healthy diet combined with frequent bouts of exercise has kept humans trim for so many years.
Paleo breakfast suggestions
Eating a Paleo breakfast does not have to involve lots of cooking and preparation. A little planning may be in order, though: You can cook hardboiled eggs and grill chicken breasts days ahead of time if you wish. The key is to think outside the box. And remember: The possibilities are pretty much endless when it comes to a Paleo breakfast!

There is no rule that says you cannot eat salad for breakfast. This is a great breakfast if you are pressed for time. If you prep your veggies ahead of time, you can make this healthy meal in a pinch. Simply pile some veggies on a plate (baby spinach, arugula, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, onions, carrots, etc). You can use any vegetables you like! Sprinkle a little sea salt and extra virgin olive oil on top. Prepare two eggs any style you like (we like over-easy or sunny side up) and slide them on top of the salad. Add some fresh ground pepper and you have a tasty yet quick Paleo breakfast!
