Paleo Breakfast – Messy Egg Scramble

Paleo Breakfast – Messy Egg Scramble

Trying to cut back on grains has been much easier than I thought it would be. My one BIG question is what to eat for a paleo breakfast. You see, I’m not a huge egg person and I like something super quick…..a bowl of cereal, a piece of toast, a granola bar, a container of yogurt. Since ALL of those are now off limits, I’ve had to put my thinking cap on. What can I make that is simple, delicious and grain free? For the first few days I ate hard boiled eggs every day but that got old pretty quickly.

Add the eggs!

Today I made my second egg and veggie scramble. I realize that this is a ridiculous thing to post as a recipe but sometimes posts just like this make me think “Oh yeah….that would be tasty and it’s easy!”. Feel free to mix and match whatever vegetables and meats you have the refrigerator for the ones I’ve listed. Just stay away from starchy vegetables like potatoes or beans.  If you want to make this REALLY fast, pre-chop your veggies for the week and keep them in a tupperware container.

This looks delicious!

I don't think I could ever give up grains.

It actually hasn't been that hard Brandy. The biggest hurdle for me is thinking of what to eat. All the easy grab and go items have grains. I need to buy some Larabars so I have something if I have to be in a hurry.

And this recipe is YUM. I would make it again even if I was eating grains...I would just pair it with some toast. :)

Mmm this looks so delicious! And you are right...this does make me think that I need to make this... I'm thinking for tomorrow!
