Hey there! I totally get it - mornings can be hectic, especially when you're trying to stick to a paleo lifestyle. But don't worry, I've got you covered with some quick and easy paleo breakfast options that are perfect for work!
One of my favorite go-to options is a simple and delicious egg muffin. You can make a batch of these on the weekend and have them ready to grab and go throughout the week. Just whisk together some eggs, your favorite veggies (like spinach, bell peppers, or mushrooms), and maybe even some cooked bacon or sausage if you're feeling fancy. Pour the mixture into a muffin tin and bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes. These little muffins are packed with protein and will keep you satisfied until lunchtime.
If you're not a fan of eggs or just want to switch things up, chia pudding is another great option. It's super easy to make and can be prepared the night before. Simply mix together some chia seeds, your choice of milk (almond, coconut, or any other paleo-friendly option), and a touch of sweetener like honey or maple syrup. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, and in the morning, you'll have a creamy and nutritious pudding ready to enjoy. You can top it with fresh berries, nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon for some extra flavor.
For those who prefer a heartier breakfast, sweet potato hash is a winner. It's a great way to use up leftover cooked sweet potatoes from the night before. Just dice up the sweet potatoes and sauté them in a skillet with some onions, bell peppers, and your choice of protein like chicken sausage or ground turkey. Season it with some paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until everything is nice and crispy, and voila! You've got a delicious and filling breakfast that will keep you energized all morning long.
If you're really pressed for time, overnight oats can be a lifesaver. While oats themselves aren't paleo, you can easily swap them out for a paleo-friendly alternative like shredded coconut or chia seeds. Simply mix together your choice of "oats," some almond milk, a scoop of nut butter, and a sprinkle of your favorite toppings like berries or chopped nuts. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, and in the morning, you'll have a ready-to-eat breakfast waiting for you.
I hope these quick and easy paleo breakfast options help make your mornings a little bit easier. Remember, preparation is key, so take some time to plan and prep your meals ahead of time.
