“What do you eat for breakfast?”  

How do you eat breakfast without toast or cereal?

Before going AIP, I was basic paleo for about 6 months, so I could still have eggs.  I learned very quickly that I needed to incorporate veggies into my morning routine.  It was especially important that I do so for my daughter.

I started sauteing organic spinach to go with locally farmed eggs & either uncured bacon or pastured pork sausage and some fruit.

Not too bad.  But then after a while, even that got boring.  So I changed it up a bit & started doing some scrambles of good quality sausage from my local farmer, mixed with leeks, zucchini, spinach, & whatever veggies I had & eggs.

One of my daughters’ favorites is my Sausage Breakfast Hash! The recipe is in the free AIP/Paleo quick start guide along with a few other recipes, on my home page. Don’t forget to sign up to get it!

Be Creative!

After I went full AIP & had to eliminate eggs & other foods that I was sensitive to,  (my daughter & I both had food sensitivities, hers is worse than mine) then it was a little more challenging.  You just have to be more creative.  

I love doing scrambles with tons of veggies, & leftover meat with a small side of fruit.  Or, I would do leftovers from dinner the night before. That was a little hard at first, especially when you are used to having cereal &/or bread, but after a while, it just becomes a habit. It’s totally a mental thing, especially when you grow up in the south. (Think Biscuits & Gravy)

Leftovers are your best friend! I learned that batch cooking made my life so much easier.

Once we had the mindset of “what we can eat” vs “what we can’t eat”, it got a whole lot easier. I just try to keep it simple. No fancy recipes. Especially, during the school year. I need it to be healthy & quick!

I like to make a big pan of Sausage Breakfast Hash on Sunday nights & it lasts for several days. It makes life so much easier in the mornings & I don’t have to worry about a teenager giving in to snacks at the school snack bar that’s not healthy. She doesn’t get hungry until lunch!

Here are a couple of recipes that I also make for breakfast:

AIP Paleo Fried avocado is easy & delicious! Perfect as a side to breakfast or any meal. Whole 30, Vegan Friendly & Keto too! www.thehealthnutmama.com

One thing I did notice eating this way, was that I had more energy & didn’t get hungry. It would be 2:00 in the afternoon & realize I hadn’t eaten yet! That’s new to me. With the old way of eating, I was starved by 10:00 am. I find that I don’t snack anymore unless I miss lunch & realize I need to eat.   

Bone Broth

One of the most important things I did, was to start drinking bone broth. Since I couldn’t have coffee anymore & I needed to heal my gut, this was vital. My daughter wasn’t sure about it at first, but now she asks for it. Especially, if she’s not feeling 100%.  I guess that’s why our parents & grandparents use to make us “chicken soup.”  It really does work! Learn How to Make Bone Broth in the Instant Pot here

Also, if you are having a tough time not having coffee or the thoughts of giving it up are stressing you out, try my recipe for AIP “Coffee” Alternative. It got me through those mornings when I just needed something that resembled coffee. In fact, it’s delicious! You won’t even miss your morning cup of Joe! Not only is it delicious, but much healthier too!

Remember to just take one day at a time. It will be the best decision you ever made for your health. It’s been over 7 years since starting this way of eating & am back to full Paleo now. I have put all 3 of my autoimmune diseases in remission as of February 2019.
