Breakfast is frequently my favorite meal to prepare and eat. I love eggs, bacon, cereal, fruit, and the tasty baked goods, like sweet rolls, that go along with it. With a little creativity you can make a tasty breakfast, that won’t destroy your liver and pancreas (not to mention your weight)! These Paleo Egg Wraps are super easy to make, and they’re deliciously healthy. You can substitute whatever fillings you like, and complete the meal by serving them with some healthier paleo muffins, and some fruit. Yum!
Here are links for some of my favorite muffins, that would pair nicely with this egg dish. You can prepare them the night before, then heat them up in the morning while you make the egg wraps.
- Paleo Blueberry Muffins
- Paleo Sweet Roll Muffins
- Chocolate Raspberry Muffins
- Tea Infused Spiced Paleo Apple Muffins
- Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins
If you serve the egg wraps, along with muffins and fruit, it will be a rich and filling breakfast, that is healthy (full of protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals), but not low in calories. When you eat this kind of breakfast, try to eat a salad for lunch. I think of it in financial terms. Allocate your calories in a way that fits your day and activities. When Jim and I were in Kauai we ate huge breakfasts, and took our time to enjoy each flavor, while soaking in the ocean view from our condo. Since we had allocated so many calories to breakfast we weren’t very hungry for lunch, so kept that meal light.
By the way, I try to always use uncured bacon. It is free of nitrates and nitrites, which can cause cancer if they are consumed in excess. I’ve also heard that some people get headaches from them. One other questionable ingredient is the cheese. Some don’t consider dairy to be paleo. It’s best if you eat cheese that is raw and that has come from grass fed cows. You can skip the meat and cheese altogether in this egg wrap, and just stick with veggies if you’d like. Sautéed onions would be a delicious addition! Make these eggs fit your lifestyle.
Here are some snapshots of one of our delicious Kauai breakfasts (usually involving fruit, a treat like pancakes or scones, eggs, and uncured bacon)!
