My Favorite Healthy Breakfast Without Eggs

As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I always recommend including good protein in your breakfast and as little sugar as possible to stabilize blood sugar, have lasting energy until your next meal, and of course to keep you satiated. So if a recipe below doesn’t automatically include protein, be sure to add some on the side. Some great options are any of my breakfast sausages, bacon, Proscuitto, or wild smoked salmon which are quick and easy! Or simply add protein powder with water or your choice of milk for a shake to drink along with it. 

Substituting egg doesn’t mean substituting fun! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gluten-free egg-free breakfast recipes, most are also Paleo and AIP-friendly, too!

 

Just getting started on AIP (or need a refresh)? Here's an easy 1-week meal plan using some of my most popular AIP recipes to make it stress-free and delicious.
