Recipe: Paleo Egg Muffins

Egg Muffins are a win for quick and easy breakfast options. When I make them I make a big batch and keep them in the fridge.

I use whatever vegetables I have left over, so you can go as plain or complex as you like.

Crispy Smoked Haddock and Mushroom Egg Pancakes paleo recipe-min

Recipe: Crispy Smoked Haddock and Mushroom Egg Pancakes

Warning: these are not pancakes as you expect them to be. When I created this recipe, I had no idea how to define the crisp, flavour packed savoury parcels of eggy goodness I had just created. In all honesty, they probably lie somewhere between a pancake, a fritter and a mini omelette. But the important part is they’re nutritious, colourful, and damn tasty. Make a batch for the whole family for the perfect weekend breakfast.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • • 1 smoked haddock fillet
  • • 6 mushrooms, finely diced
  • • 1 red onion, diced
  • • Large handful spinach, chopped
  • • Coconut Oil
  • • 8 large, free range eggs
  • • ¼ cup + 1tbsp coconut flour
  • • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • • Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat a little coconut oil in a large frying pan. Add the haddock fillet, and fry for around 5 minutes on both sides – until cooked through. Remove the fish from the pan, which can stay on the heat. Remove the skin and flake with a fork.
  2. Return the flaked haddock to the pan and add the mushrooms and red onion. Cook for 2 / 3 minutes, until the mushrooms have reduced. Add the spinach and cook for a further 30 seconds or so until lightly wilted. Pour pan contents into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, coconut flour, cider vinegar, sodium bicarbonate and salt and pepper. Whisk thoroughly until lump free, before pouring the contents into the large bowl containing the haddock.
  4. Return the pan to the heat and add a little extra coconut oil. Scoop around ⅛th of the mixture into the pan to form one pancake, and repeat for as many as you can fit comfortably in the pan – you’ll probably have to cook them in batches. Cook for 3 minutes each side, until golden brown and well risen. Serve immediately!

Paleo Breakfast Recipe: Haddock Omelette

I thought I’d share another recipe from my Paleo breakfast Recipe Book today. I love this recipe as it’s quick and easy not to mention a great way to get some extra Omega 3 into your diet.

Breakfast Ingredients:

• 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly cubed
• 300g (10oz) smoked haddock fillet
• coconut oil
• 1 onion, finely chopped
• 5 free-range eggs
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 30g (2 tablespoons) chopped fresh chives

 

Breakfast How To:

Cook the sweet potatoes in a pan of boiling water.

After five minutes, add the fish to the pan.

Once the sweet potatoes are tender, drain the potatoes and fish, and set aside.

Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and sauté the onion until they become soft and translucent.

Once the fish and potatoes have cooled enough to handle, flake the fish into smaller pieces and remove any skin and bones.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, season and add the chives, potatoes and fish.

Pour the mixture back into the pan with the onions and cook over a medium heat for a few minutes until the omelette is set.

Cut the omelette into slices and serve warm. Alternatively, this can be made in advance, stored in the fridge and enjoyed cold.

80 Paleo Breakfast Ideas

If it wasn’t for struggling to come up with different Paleo Breakfast Ideas, I’m sure more people would make the transition over to Paleo. Unfortunately, Breakfast seems to be associated with cereal, toast, bagels, crumpets and sugar laden foods.

Breakfast doesn’t have to equal grains! tweet this quote

I think a lot of people also get stuck in a breakfast rut making the same dish every day. Well, it’s time to break it up – try something new for breakfast tomorrow!

My biggest tip is to get used to seeing breakfast as fuel – it’s just another meal! And who wants to start the day off with a big sugar crash?

Paleo Breakfast Salmon Burgers recipe mushrooms-min

Paleo Breakfast: Salmon Burgers Recipe

I’ve been trying out lots and lots of new ideas for Paleo Breakfast Recipes (more on that soon!) and was particularly pleased with Sunday’s creation. I could eat eggs every day, but I know a lot of people get fed up with eggs – and believe it or not bacon, so this Recipe is something different.

For more breakfast recipes, check out my brand new Paleo Breakfast Recipe Book – I hope you love it as much as I do!

With just three “main” ingredients, it couldn’t be much easier to make either.

Ingredients: –

Two large Portabella mushrooms
Two large tomatoes (as close in size to the mushrooms as possible)
Salmon (I used two pieces from the fishmongers, about 500g)
Coconut Oil
Salt (I used Celtic seat salt)
Fresh Lime
Paprika

Method: –

• I preheated the oven to 200C (400F) whilst I washed the tomatoes and mushrooms.

• I cut the stalks off the mushrooms – carefully – and set them aside (to add to a batch of Paleo Chilli; waste not want not)

• I then cut the mushrooms into two slices. Once I’d cut off the top and bottom, I cut the tomatoes into four slices each.

• I had intended to use a biscuit cutter, but I actually found it easier to use a large glass (similar in diameter to the mushrooms), to cut 8 rings out of the salmon.

• I arranged the mushrooms, tomatoes and salmon onto a baking tray and brushed with coconut oil, then topped with a little salt.

• I cooked for about ten minutes, then assembled the burgers, starting with the bottom slice of the mushroom, alternating the tomato and salmon – and ending with the mushroom top.

• I served with a squeeze of lime, a pinch of paprika (and some spinach leaves).

This was a really simple breakfast to make, but looked impressive and was very filling.

If you give it a try, I’d love to hear what you think of the Recipe, below! What do you think about fish for breakfast?

Breakfast for a prime minister paleo diet healthy-min

Breakfast Fit for a Prime Minister?

I was interested to see photos of a typical Breakfast for British Prime Minister David Cameron.

  • Lurpak butter ( Ingredients: Organic butter (69%), organic rapeseed oil (25%), lactic culture, salt (0.9%))
  • Shredded Wheat Cereal (judging by the rest of the meal, I bet the milk isn’t whole fat)
  • Toast with Jam
  • Low-fat yoghurt
  • Fruit

That’s certainly a very carb-heavy Breakfast, without much fat or protein in sight.  They must need regular carbohydrate based snacks for when their blood sugar levels crash shortly after eating.

I’d have loved to see them tucking into a proper cooked Breakfast!  Perhaps Julia Gillard starts the days with bacon and eggs, cooked in coconut oil?

Paleo Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast seems to be the meal people struggle with when moving over to a Paleo diet.

The word breakfast may be synonymous with cereal, toast, pancakes and many other refined carbs – but it really doesn’t have to be.  Breakfast is simply the first meal of the day the “break” the “fast” you’ve carried out since your last meal the previous day.

I’m thrilled to announce I’ve just finished my first recipe book; the Paleo Breakfast Recipe book, with over 100 pages of beautifully photographed step-by-step recipes – check it out and let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do.

A Paleo Breakfast?

I think the first step is to remove the association of breakfast with a specific type of meal.  Breakfast does not equal cereal, swimming in skim milk.  Think of breakfast on its nutritional merits; that is, base your first meal of the day around a good protein source and marry this with a good fat source and some vegetables.  You may initially find the idea of having meat for breakfast odd, but it’s worth persevering with this, as good quality meat can be a great way to start the day.

If you don’t have much time in the mornings you need to be organised and prepare as much as you can the night before.  I find it helps to plan all of my meals for the whole week in advance, at the weekend.  I then buy the ingredients, so I have no excuses and everything I need on hand.A lot of people skip breakfast, which might be the right thing to do.  If however your reason for skipping breakfast is that you can’t get out of bed in time to make breakfast – this indicates to me that you need breakfast!

Eggs For Breakfast?

Eggs are an obvious breakfast choice.  They are quick, nutritious and very versatile.  I often have bacon & eggs, scrambled eggs with avocado or an omelette, with whichever vegetables I have in the fridge.  I always cook in coconut oil.  Another favourite is making up a batch of egg muffins at the weekend.  I make these up as I would an omelette, but pour them into muffin cases and cook in the oven.  These last for a few days in the fridge and are perfect for busy days when there isn’t enough time to make something from scratch.

I’ll also often cook extra chicken at the weekend which is great to base a breakfast around and doesn’t need to be reheated, I think it’s great cold.  Chicken and avocado is a great combination.

Leftovers are another great breakfast, once you’ve got used to the idea of having “untraditional” breakfasts.  You can’t get much quicker and easier than that!

Occasionally at weekends I’ll make Paleo pancakes (using coconut or almond meal).  This is great served with a berry sauce, made with fresh berries, blended in coconut milk.   Noatmeal is another infrequent Paleo indulgence which is a great way to start the day.

Paleo-Pancakes-breakfast-min

Whilst strictly, I guess it is Paleo, I never have just fruit for breakfast.  I always base my meal around protein and include fat.  To have fruit (carbohydrate) as a meal on its own would be depriving myself of essential fats and proteins, would raise my blood sugar level and I’d very quickly be hungry.

What are your favourite Paleo breakfasts?  I’d love to hear, in the comments below.

A Typical Day in Paleo Meals

Despite trying not going overboard talking about my Paleo diet, it often comes out, especially when I’m out in a group, quizzing waiting staff about exactly what is in each dish and how it’s cooked.  It also becomes quite obvious when I’m the only person tucking into fish and vegetables – instead of eating pizza! I’m always asked (in disbelief) what a Typical Day in Paleo meals looks like.

I explain what I eat and why I don’t eat grains.  This stage often seems to happen whilst the person asking the questions, is tucking into their grain based meal.  Once they’ve got their head round the impossible – life without grains – they’ll almost always ask me what I actually eat.

So I thought I’d show some photos of a fairly typical working weekday, in Paleo meals.

Breakfast. 

typical_day_in_paleo_meals_breakfast_bacon_eggs_avo-min

A Paleo breakfast of bacon, eggs & avocado

On this particular day I had bacon, eggs and avocado.  I avoid supermarket bacon as it’s often very heavily processed with all sorts of ingredients I don’t want to eat.  My local organic butcher makes the best bacon I’ve had since I’ve been in Australia.  It’s fresh, made in store, with minimal ingredients.  It comes from organic, non factory farmed pigs.  And the taste really is testament to this.  I cook this in coconut oil (I’m currently using organic, virgin cold pressed, unrefined Melrose Coconut Oil).  Once the bacon is almost ready I cook the eggs in the same pan.  I always use organic, free range eggs – and where I can find them I’ll also often get Omega-3 enriched eggs.  I complete the meal with a few slices of avocado.  This breakfast is a great source of great fats and protein.  At the moment I’m trying to eat within 30 minutes of waking up and it really does seem to be making such a significant difference.  You can read my Paleo breakfast post for more breakfast ideas.

Lunch. 

paleo_lunch_in_the_city_roast-min

Paleo Lunch in the City; Roast Beef & Vegetables

Lunch should be something bought in from home so I know I’m eating the best possible ingredients.  However, in the real world I invariably don’t get round to making lunch every day.  This was one such day, where I had to find the best possible Paleo meal in the city.  In this situation, I often choose a roast dinner, on this occasion with roast beef and seasonal vegetables.

Dinner. 

stuffed_capsicum_paleo_diet_recipe_bell_peppers_dinner_lunch_chicken_typical_day_paleo_meals-min

Paleo Dinner, Stuffed Capsicum

Dinner is the meal where all the effort, creativity and amazing ingredients go!  I usually plan the week’s dinners at the weekend, then shop to make sure I have all the required ingredients.  This dinner was stuffed capsicum (bell peppers) with a filling of minced beef and lots of veg, herbs and spices.  I have something different most days as I enjoy trying different recipes, cooking and introducing a lot of variety to my diet.

And to Drink?

I drink water all day long with the occasional cup of tea, or hot water with a slice of lemon or lime thrown in for good measure.

How does a typical day in food look for you?  Do you tend to repeat the same meals or go for maximum variety in your diet?
