What in the world is for breakfast (Part 1)

24 Jan

Egg "bowl" of collard greens and salsa verde

Egg, kale and tomato scramble

One of the biggest questions I seem to get lately is about breakfast. Dinner can be easy….pick a meat, pick some veggies and you’re done, but for some reason breakfast remains puzzling to many.  I have a stash of great primal breakfast options for weekends or special occasions when there is more time (primal pancakes, waffles, quiches, veggie-loaded omelets, frittatas, and so on–stay tuned for future posts!) but every day during the school/work week I have the same thing:

3 eggs


-4 cups of raw kale or collard greens lightly sautéed in olive oil, coconut oil, or butter
-two chopped tomatoes lightly sautéed
or,  1/2 cup of a good salsa

I pair that with a half an apple and a bit of almond butter and I’m set until lunch. Try it. Take a giant leap away from cereal and toast.  I promise it is fast, easy and you will feel great knowing you front loaded so many super foods into your morning!

    I tried this yesterday for breakfast and it was fantastic. I forgot how much I like kale. Thanks Heather!

    You are so welcome! I also forgot to mention having fun with spices in your eggs and veggie scrambles. I love McCormick’s Hot Shot combo of red and black pepper, chipotle pepper, or oregano, basil and garlic!

    Made this one this morning (first time having kale) and really liked it!! Topped it with some greens onions too. Thanks for new creative ways with eggs. 🙂
