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.
- Sausage/Bacon/Pork (or any meat of choosing)
- Scrambled Eggs
- Coconut Oil
- Sweet Potatoes or Russet Potatoes
- Avocado Oil ( I get the Chosen Food brand from Costco or here)
- 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.
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 recipe.
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.
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.
Quick and healthy breakfast to make. Keeping it simple every morning.
