I’ve been in a breakfast rut lately, but I am determined to bust out of it. Although I find meal planning for breakfast to be kind of extreme – one of the best/only reasons to get out of best in the dead of winter is breakfast – it never hurts to have a list of potential breakfast candidates on hand so that you don’t end up eating scrambled eggs every.single.morning. How do you think I got myself into this rut to begin with?
Since many of you, particular if you’re new to the low carb/grain free/paleo diet bandwagon, may be in the same boat, I thought that my breakfast inspiration list might be helpful to you too.
The original concept, because I can never let anything be too simple or un-stressful, was do make a 26-meal list with one recipe for every letter of the alphabet. I finally gave that up because I ended up with 72 “b” recipes (Bacon. Newsflash: it’s popular.) and no “x” recipes.
Nonetheless, it’s a pretty great list, full of sweet and savory, quick and more in-depth and straightforward and indulgent recipes. There’s something for everyone, which is to say, there is definitely something for you this morning.
