Sample Paleo Breakfast Recipe
Most paleo dieters begin breakfast with a protein, some healthy
fat, fruits, vegetables and seasonings. Scott Hagnas, founder of CrossFit Portland, suggests that paleo
dieters begin to get used to eating foods that are not considered traditional breakfast foods. Throw out
your pancake mix, bacon, muffins, waffles, and granola and get used to eating steak, pork, salmon, eggs,
fruit, and vegetables at breakfast time.
While eggs are often recommended by paleo
enthusiasts to be limited to only 6 each week, they are an excellent source of protein and healthy
nutrients. Eggs can provide the choline needed to reduce inflammation in the body and promote
weight-loss. Furthermore, it has been found that a moderate intake of eggs can actually reduce bad
cholesterol, protect eyesight, and prevent blood clots.
The olive oil, almonds, and lean steak provide
plenty of healthy fats to get you through your morning and the rest of your day. Olive oil also lowers
cholesterol and decreases risk for various heart-related illnesses, according to Dr. Michael Murray, author
of The Encyclopedia of Healing
Foods. Almonds, Murray argues, are incredibly
nutrient-rich. Almonds provide monounsaturated and polyunsaturated oils, protein, potassium, magnesium,
calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamin E. Indeed, almonds are also considered to have anti-cancer properties and
fight against heart disease.
This recipe is full of cancer fighting,
energizing vegetables. Spinach is loaded with iron and can give you energy while preventing eye problems.
Bell peppers also fight cataracts and other eye problems, according to Murray. These vegetables are
high in vitamin C and beta-carotene. And, with mushrooms, your body receives necessary minerals, such as
selenium, copper, potassium, and zinc. Depending on the type of mushroom you choose, you may decrease your
cholesterol, increase vitality, fight infection, and increase your white blood cell count.
With oranges, bananas, grapes, and kiwis in your
fruit bowl, you can expect to get even more cancer-fighting agents and vitamins. With an orange, white,
red, and green fruit, the nutrients you get from this single breakfast will be varied and beneficial to your
overall health. With the fruit cup in this recipe, you will gain a nice head start on your daily needs for
potassium, vitamins B6, C, flavonoids, and fiber.
As with any recipe, feel free to make
substitutions. Instead of steak, use pork loin. Instead of spinach, use onions. The best way to
begin with a recipe like this is to use what is already in your pantry and refrigerator.
