Enjoy your “Paleo Breakfast”… with two Fantastic Paleo Recipes!
Nutritionists agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, it should not just be about packing as many starches and sugars into your stomach to give you enough fuel to last you till lunch time. Breakfast should be a wholesome meal that not only gives you energy but also keeps you healthy at the same time. That is why you should take all paleo recipes for breakfast with the seriousness they deserve. We shall cover two paleo breakfast ideas that are guaranteed to change the way you eat breakfast.
Paleo Breakfast 1 – Wooly Mammoth Oatmeal
The reason why such paleo recipes are known as ‘wooly’ is the presence of a lot of shredded ingredients. In this case we shall use a lot of shredded coconut. The following are the ingredients you need for this meal.
¼ cup shredded coconut, 1 cup coconut flour, ½ teaspoon baking powder, 3 tablespoons cultured French ghee (paleo butter), 3 tbsp raw honey, 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 2 eggs, 1 tsp fresh lemon juice, ½ tsp lemon zest, 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil, ¼ tsp cinnamon, 14 ounces of coconut milk, strawberries, and any other add ins you like. The preparation is as follows:
Combine the ‘dry ingredients’ (coconut flour, baking powder, and shredded coconut) in a large mixing bowl. Mix the other ingredients except the coconut milk in a separate bowl. Take time to break up the ingredients without warming them. When the ‘wet’ ingredients are all mixed up, combine them with the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Compared to paleo recipes for pancakes, the batter will become quite dry but that’s how it should be.
When the ingredients for this paleo breakfast are properly mixed up add coconut milk to the batter and stir until it absorbs all the coconut milk and becomes heavier. Preheat a frying pan or cast iron skillet and drop the batter and squish it down to cook just as you would pancakes. Flip it over after it has cooked for a few minutes and allow the other side to also cook. Break up the patty and continue cooking for a few minutes then throw in some sliced strawberries on top to warm them up.
This paleo breakfast is all done! Serve the meal in bowls and add butter, almond milk, fruit, and fixins. Any leftover batter should stay fresh in the fridge for at least one week.
Paleo Breakfast 2 – Green Monster Smoothie
Many kids cringe at the thought of green stuff staring back at them on the dining table. However, this is one of the paleo recipes that you can use to convince them that even though green stuff doesn’t look so great, it doesn’t always taste as bad as it looks. For this smoothie you will need the following ingredients.
2 cups canned coconut milk, 2 cups washed spinach leaves, 2 cups kale with stems removed, 1 cup ice cubes, 1 cup fresh mango or pineapple (cubed), 2 frozen bananas, 1 cup water. Paleo recipes for smoothies are the easiest to follow. All you need to do is to put the coconut milk into a blender followed by all other ingredients. Blend until smooth and add other goodies to make the smoothie sweeter. This paleo breakfast recipe makes two large smoothies or four small ones.
