  1. 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.


  2. 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?

      • 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?

  3. 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. 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. 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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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! 🙂

    • 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  13. I see in all the AIP lists that eggs and nuts are not allowed…..but in they are in all of these recipes. I am so frustrated with contradictory information about all of this stuff……I have been researching for days and days and still can’t get a straight answer about what foods are allowed and what aren’t. Even the FODMAPS AIP food list contradicts that AIP list (and it really should be exactly the same with more things eliminated), but there are some things on the FODMAPS AIP diet that are allowed which aren’t on the AIP list….I am so confused, overwhelmed and don’t even know how to start….I just want to sit down and eat an entire loaf of white bread since I am so scared and frustrated…:(
