I love breakfast, more so than lunch and dinner. Some people can just have a cup of black coffee in the morning. My brother often skips breakfast because he “isn’t hungry.”
Not me. I often wake up half starving and raring to sink my teeth into a hot slice of toast, bacon and eggs. Or prata. Or pancakes. Or scrambled eggs with garlic and cheese. One of my favourite things to do in hotels is to pig out at the breakfast buffet (also to be cheap and skip lunch after). I wouldn’t be interested in the Asian breakfast like the noodles or congee but I would wolf down pancakes, toast and eggs. Nothing has changed now, except that I try not to eat prata or other grain-based food.

With the exception of roti prata, I don’t feel sorry giving up any other grain-based breakfast food. That’s because I can recreate them in my kitchen by baking with substitutions, such as almond flour or coconut flour. Not only do they taste good, they are infinitely more nutritious than white flour.
I still eat a mountain of food for breakfast but here is what I eat now:
Omelette stuffed with mushrooms, chicken and pickles, strawberries, almond butter, coffee
Coconut flour pancakes with macadamia butter, scrambled eggs with cheese
Omelette with mushrooms, paleo banana bread, avocado spread
I feel very satisfied and happy with my breakfast choices. The running theme is that I eat a copious amount of eggs. The second thing I noticed is that my breakfast is largely home cooked. Just this morning, I steamed three slices of bacon to accompany my paleo bread. Yummy!
P.S. Michelle from Bacon and Jack Russells talks about what people in other countries have for breakfast.
P.P.S. Can a food blogger create a paleo version of the roti prata? Oh gosh, that would be amazing…
