Breakfast

Delicious, high-protein breakfast recipes that will actually keep you full until lunchtime.

Almond Flour Pancakes

These tasty almond flour pancakes are fluffy and tender. I don’t add any sweetener to the batter, because I serve them with maple syrup, which makes them plenty sweet enough. The blueberries are optional, and wonderful. Click for the recipe

Paleo Chocolate Muffins

I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately, and these Paleo chocolate muffins are the perfect answer to “what can I have that’s rich, chocolaty, gooey and awesome, but doesn’t contain wheat and won’t send my blood sugar sky-high?”

These Paleo chocolate muffins are good enough to serve as dessert, but they are also wholesome enough that I allow myself and the kids a couple of them for breakfast on weekends. An added bonus: unlike refined-flour-and-sugar-muffins, these muffins are very filling, probably thanks to using almond butter in lieu of flour. Click for the recipe

Goat Cheese Frittata

I’m calling this “goat cheese frittata” because it contains goat cheese, but I might as well call it “everything frittata,” since it was born out of my need to use up stuff in my fridge before it goes bad. So I threw in there said goat cheese, spinach, scallions, and a few sun-dried tomatoes. Added seasonings and baked. The result is a delicious, pretty, very filling frittata that I love having for breakfast, for lunch or as a quick snack. Click for the recipe

Salami Breakfast Cups

I wanted to make pretty, flower-like eggs in a basket, but I wanted to keep it low-carb. So instead of using bread slices as my cup, or basket, I used salami slices. Festive, pretty and delicious, these salami breakfast cups are perfect for brunch! Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

These delicious gluten free chocolate muffins are made with coconut flour. They taste richly chocolaty and indulgent, but they are low in calories and in carbs and high in fiber. Two of these muffins for breakfast will fill you up for hours and should not cause the spike and dip in blood sugar that regular muffins cause. Click for the recipe

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

These delicious pumpkin pancakes are Paleo, gluten free, and “just as good as regular pumpkin pancakes,” report my two teenage testers (and I agree). The batter is basically pumpkin, eggs and spices – the coconut flour is added purely as a thickener and you cannot taste it in the cooked pancakes. I don’t sweeten the batter at all, so I serve these pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup – a tablespoon per serving is plenty. Click for the recipe
