What’s for Breakfast?!?

Breakfast is one meal that I never have a hard time planning. My breakfast consists of pretty much the same thing every day.  This makes it easy on me for planning and gives the kiddos a great meal to start the day. I like to be able to serve them a warm breakfast every morning! If I am ever in a pinch for time I will warm up leftovers from the night before. No need to feel like you always have to have traditional breakfast food for breakfast.

I buy the majority of my meats from Costco. It is a cost savings for me since we cook large quantities at a time for a family of 7 and growing kiddos with endless pits. If you are looking for a great resource for paleo and/or gluten free goodies to get from Costco, Paleo Parents have provided a great shopping list of ideas.  You can check it out here and tuck it away for future reference!

Breakfast hash is what I make in the mornings.

  1. Sausage/Bacon/Pork (or any meat of choosing)
  2. Scrambled Eggs
  3. Coconut Oil
  4. Sweet Potatoes or Russet Potatoes
  5. Avocado Oil ( I get the Chosen Food brand from Costco or here)
  6. Fruit
  7. Salad or Broccoli slaw-Optional

First I start with cooking the sweet potatoes. Sometimes I will use rustic potatoes or a combination as not all my kiddos favor sweet potatoes. I grab the organic bags of sweet or rustic potatoes from Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s has a great organic line that is reasonably priced. I cube up the potatoes and heat up a cast-iron pan. Add avocado oil to pan and toss in the potatoes. Fry up until done.IMG_0367

As the sweet potatoes are finishing I start to cook the Kiolbassa sausage. This is the kind I get from Costco. Sometimes I will get organic ground turkey and make my own sausage using Diane’s (from Practical Paleo) italian sausage blend recipeIMG_0366

Next crack the eggs and scramble them up in some coconut oil. Chino Valley Ranchers is a local farmer that supplies organic free range eggs to my local Costco.  I urge you to check your local Costco to see what they carry, and be sure to price compare. Even though I have to buy these by the dozen they are cheaper per dozen compared to the Costco organic eggs plus these are free range chickens!  These are reasonably priced usually at $2.79/dozen. Sometimes they may be a little cheaper. IMG_0368

Serve the food up in dishes and add a fruit of choosing if you like. I added blackberries for this breakfast. Also I usually offer broccoli slaw or a mixed salad to go with every meal even breakfast.IMG_0369

 

Quick and healthy breakfast to make. Keeping it simple every morning.

Enjoy!
