paleo breakfast ideas

Need some paleo breakfast ideas?

Six days out of the week, my breakfast doesn’t meet the traditional preconception of breakfast food. That’s because I eat dinner or lunch leftovers for the majority of my morning meals, to save time and energy. In my life, it’s cook once and eat twice… or three or four times!

But sometimes I need to get out of my breakfast rut, and that’s when I reach for the the many paleo breakfast ideas I’ve collected over the years. Here are 100 healthy paleo breakfast ideas and recipes to get your day started out right.

    Thank you so much for making my life a little bit easier. Occasionally I do want breakfast that resembles breakfast in some way and this post really helps those mornings.

    I know what you mean with a breakfast that doesn’t meet the traditional preconception of breakfast food, I usually have the same thing as you – the leftovers from lunch! I have to admit, paleo has made my life with Hashimoto’s a little bit easier to bear.

    Hi Lauren, great post! I’m just wondering if you can do a list like this for non-egg breakfasts? I sometimes need a break from eggs.
    Also, may I contact you about adding some of your recipes to my site when it’s launched?

      • Elizabeth says

        An egg-free list would be AWESOME! I am allergic to eggs, so most of these are off limits for me.

      • says

        Hi Lauren,
        I’m super happy to see that egg-free list is up – thank you!
        Re publishing your recipes, how about just putting the link out to your recipe and listing the foods you use for it? No images, recipe instructions, and nothing without referencing. When the site is launched, others will be able to manually add their own recipes – much like they can on other sites like ZipList – in their personal accounts, but anything that’s shared with the public can then be checked. What do you think?

          • says

            Great Lauren, thanks! What I’ll do is see how things work out when the site is (eventually) launched. I’ll get in touch at that point if I’m not sure about what you think when members are able to add and share recipes.

  3. says

    Thanks for such a good resource post! Since I started eating healthier, breakfast has definitely been the hardest thing to change (besides pizza)! I’m pinning this for future inspiration whenever I’m in a scrambled eggs rut!

  4. Cara says

    I have never gotten the golden eggs to work. I’ve tried it multiple times, fresh eggs, old eggs, pastured eggs, conventional eggs etc. They always kind of “pop” and then there are egg trails in the water…, super bummed.

  5. Carly Rogers says

    I’ve been following your site since right after you first started… But I don’t think I’ve ever commented before. Thank you so much for this list! I usually do leftovers and throw an egg on top, but I am sooooo bored. There are lots of new ones on here I hadn’t seen before! Woot!

  6. says

    Breakfast is the hardest meal for me, so this is just excellent–thanks so much for including my recipe! I would also love to see an egg-free round up. I love eggs, but sometimes I need a break.

  7. Liz says

    These ideas are wonderful. What would you suggest for someone who is unable to eat eggs, dairy and wheat?
    All I’ve been doing is protein shakes and they do get a bit boring. Sometimes a turkey sausage and some fruit.

  8. Andrea says

    Whoa. This list is making my mouth water. Thank you for compiling this – it’s amazing! I’d love to know what some of your favorites are. :)

  9. Dana says

    Yummy! I am getting pretty sick of eggs and I like my breakfasts to be quick.

    What I have done lately (and it really helped me with my digestive issues, although bananas tend to help and I don’t have trouble with eggs) is a “banana pancake”: 1 mashed banana, 2 eggs or you can sub in some whites for the 2nd egg, and cinnamon. Beat it all up and fry in your choice of nummy fat. Yummy, but I need something new so this will be fun.

  10. Flavi says

    This post is excellent. Thank you!
    I like to have smoothies, juices or banana ice cream for breakfast. Fast and easy :)

  11. Kristena Coleman says

    You are absolutely wonderful! This post is amazing and gives me lots of wonderful ideas! Thank you so much! You’re better than google! :)

    P.S. Your story personally resonates with me, and I’m so, so glad I found your page. <3 Thank you so much for sharing so much of yourself and what works for you! :)

    • sarah says

      It’s quite easy to search the internet for breakfast ideas without eggs.

      For those of us who can have them/love them, this list is awesome! Thanks so much for organizing this for all of us!

  12. Pamela Kitchen says

    Hi Lauren: I love your site and recipes. Can you help me with a recipe to make my own natural almond butter. Jars that I have read use palm oil. Is there a substitute for palm oil? Thank you for your help.

  13. Elsa Karsten says

    Hi Lauren, i am new to all of this. Breakfast is also a challenge as i am not fond of eggs. Where can i get hold of the egg free list you are referring to?

  14. marilyn Tyler says

    Thanks so much for having all these wonderful sounding breakfast recipes. I was getting bored with bacon and eggs and a Fibro. support group gave me this website. I am now very excited to get started with trying some of these. I now have my Christmas menu almost completed with your grain free recipes.

  15. Faith Palmer says

    The autoimmune diet my doctor told me to use says I cannot have eggs or nuts. So Paleo must be different that an autoimmune diet. Can you please explain when most things I read use the two names as the same. This is a new lifestyle I have to adapt to for Hasinoto Thyroditis. Thank you. Faith Palmer

  16. says

    I love the long list of your ideas for a healthy paleo breakfast! My breakfast should have lots of protein and of course the ingredients must be wholesome and organic. I’m trying to keep a good diet.
