Breakfast is the first meal of the day, and often the meal that makes or breaks the successful transition to a Paleo lifestyle. Why? We've been trained. Having a salad with shredded chicken for lunch or steak and broccoli for dinner is easy to picture, but what do you do without grains or dairy in the morning? Oh my!
The short answer is, of course: eggs. Bacon and eggs. But as much as I love bacon (and I do love bacon!) even that meal can get boring after a while.
So now what?
Paleo Popsicles! These are a new hit in my house. The kids have so much fun with them.
"I found a blueberry!"
"I have a strawberry!"
I love them because they are made with organic, awesome ingredients. And, let's face it, popsicles are fun. :)
I shaped this Paleo dessert into hearts for Valentine's Day for my kids. They loved it. Who wouldn't? ;)
My friend introduced me to this recipe. She and her daughter named it "Coco" for the Coconut and Cocoa. The original recipe calls for coconut flakes. I didn't have any on hand so I used shredded coconut instead. The kids preferred the smaller texture and it is easier to make shapes with it so I used shredded coconut to make the hearts. Later we bought coconut flakes which my husband prefers. I tested this dish on a number of people of all ages and everyone, Paleo and non-Paleo, loved it. I serve it fresh from the freezer and it disappears in a flash.
Here is what the texture looks like using coconut flakes:
Just made this Paleo crock pot dish. It was awesome! I used chicken thighs and a yellow onion and left the skin on the sweet potatoes. I did not have celery so I just used four carrots. I thought it would be "eh" because there are so few ingredients but I was wrong...my husband and I devoured it. And it was so easy to make. Score!
Try making without the chicken and puree it in the blender for creamy sweet potato soup.
I like the easy Paleo stuff.
