15 Paleo Breakfast Recipes To Start Off The Day With

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so get the maximum benefits of a paleo diet with these easy and delicious paleo breakfast recipes. We may be using ingredients that were around since the time of cavemen, but that doesn’t mean we also need to cook like them.

A Brief Overview

A paleo diet stands for the consumption of foods which our ancestors used to eat thousands of years ago. It’s a return to our roots, to a time where there were no pesticides or chemicals to endanger our health. Generally, this hunter-gatherer specific regime focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits, lean meat, seafood, and nuts.

Loren Cordain, professor of health and exercise science at Colorado State University and author of The Paleo Diet, stated, “By following these nutritional guidelines, we put our diet more in line with the evolutionary pressures that shaped our current genetics, which in turn positively influences health and wellbeing.”

The important aspect of this diet isn’t the type of food per se, but rather the places we get them from. Buying organic food that has a percentage of chemicals as little as possible is the key. Once you have your ingredients, you can turn them into some delish meals using these paleo breakfast ideas.
