Sometimes scrambled eggs, omelettes and regular fried old eggs just don’t cut the mustard when it comes to a healthy paleo option for brekkie. It’s not that they aren’t great options, it just gets a little boring … Today I was harking back to my travels and decided to create a continental German breakfast, sans bread of course. Hard boiled eggs, delicious smoked Black Forest ham, crispy pear slices, pickles and a wedge of cheese – what could be more satisfying! Will be yumming this down now regularly 🙂
I have been meaning to make soft boiled eggs with asparagus “soldiers” for AGES and this week I managed to find two bunches of asparagus for $1.50! What a bargain. Honestly, hubby and I used to go out for brekkie all the time before going primal but there really is no point when you can enjoy healthy meals like this at home for a fraction of the cost!
I guess having a 3 and 4 year old is also a huge turn off from going out, lol! I’ll never forget the time when two dried out old beotches rolled their eyes and actually physically moved away from us at a lovely cafe in Bulimba – perhaps they had dementia and forgot how children are, guess I should feel sorry for them, ha!
INGREDIENTS (for one serve)
. 2 organic eggs
. 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
1. Put two large pans of water on the hob to boil.
2. Once boiling add the asparagus in one pot and simmer for five minutes. Meanwhile add the eggs to the other pot and cook in rapidly boiling water for 4 – 5 minutes. It will be very runny if you boil for four minutes only.
3. Cut off the tops of the eggs with a sharp knife, sprinkle with salt and dip your asparagus soldiers in – delightful!
Why would you ever go back to soggy weetbix or mushy cornflakes when you can have this for breakfast? A delicious pasture-raised, all natural artisan sausage and assorted grilled vegetables. DELICIOUS!
My wonderful brother-n-law ‘commissioned’ these snags from his organic butcher so they would completely fill the brief of a Whole 30 detox-thingy they are currently doing. I must say the snorkers are absolutely fantastic, and should be at $35 for 1 1/2 kg! You do have to pay for quality, yet they are still way cheaper than eating out 🙂
Now that’s some food for thought ………
Hubby has been asking lately for more brekkie options that don’t include eggs. Here is a perfect and delicious savoury alternative to eggs – hot dogs!
So simple and easy. All that is required is a cos lettuce leaf, sliced tomato, quality hot dog, grated cheese (omit for paleo version) and condiments of choice, in this instance tomato sauce and mustard.
I only managed to eat 1 1/2 of these beauties as my four year old devoured the rest. Must be good! Hope you all have a nice day.
Mmmmmmm, just cooked me up a delicious batch of simple Paleo banana pancakes and have a delicious taste left in my mouth.
Hubby and I used to cook these quite a lot last year when we started out on the primal lifestyle but for some reason we had forgotten about them lately. I don’t know why, they are crazy easy, delicious and nutritious!
Ingredients (one serve)
. 1 large, ripe banana
. 2 eggs, organic if possible
. 1/2 tspn cinnamon
. Coconut oil to fry
1. Mash banana well
2. Add eggs and cinnamon and combine with a fork until you have a runny batter
3. Fry in coconut oil until done
It really is that simple! I made one large pancakes and 8 small pikelets to give the kids. Of course they came looking for more, they really are THAT good :). (I find it interesting that they love my Paleo recipes and never need convincing to eat real food but when it comes to finishing a bowl of porridge they need a heck of a lot of convincing!)
These pancakes are great on their own or with a drizzle of maple syrup or a dollop of natural yogurt.
I’ve started the day with a fried egg and left over sweet potato chips. I’m taking the kids to playgroup this morning and if I don’t have a full brekkie in my tummy then I’ll be too tempted by the delicious bun loaf the old church ladies cut up for morning tea! Bless them!
