When I started the Paleo diet my biggest challenge was breakfast. My usual breakfast was usually pancakes, waffles, french toast or oatmeal with fruit. I would also like regular toast. These are all not allowed on Paleo, and I tired the subsitiutes and found them seriously lacking.
This means that I usually alternate between scrambled eggs with veggies or plain greek yogurt with fruit. (I am on the side of Paleo that thinks a little dairy is ok. With the exception of the plain greek yogurt, I mostly use cheese or butter as a condiment).
That being said, this can get a little old. So I came up with a yummy breakfast salad. As made this is quick, easy and vegan. Also since the hubby and kids don’t enjoy greens, I make this salad for 1.
Kale (I usually fill the bowl I am going to eat out of with kale until its overflowing)
Tablespoon of coconut or olive oil
100 Calorie pack of nuts (I’m using the almond walnut combo)
Tablespoon of dried cranberries (I use the fruit juice ones)
1. Heat oil in pan, add Kale, cook until Kale is wilted (3-5 Min)
2. On last minute of cooking-add nuts.
3. Chop Apple
4. Add Kale and nuts to bowl, top with chopped apple sprinke with dried cranberries
If you wanted to add more protein, you could cook some bacon and saute the kale in the bacon, or after you put the kale in the dish, use the pan to scramble an egg. Also, this is good with some chopped chicken or sauteed shrimp.
Ooo, looks yum! I do love me some kale…
Looks great! I will definitely give that a try.
