Paleo Breakfast: loaded scrambled eggs and fruit salad

Dish 1

Dish 2

  • frozen strawberries
  • organic blueberries
  • fresh mango
  • sliced banana
  • cacao nibs
  • shredded coconut
  • 1/3 c coconut milk (not pictured)

Breakfast is easily the hardest thing to change when adjusting to Paleo because everything we used to eat had grains in them.  But, adding some fun toppings and mix-ins to eggs and fruit can really spice them up and make them taste even better.  With all of this good fat (see: coconut, avocado), I was left satiated and feeling alert and energetic the whole morning.

Yummy Carambola

Pretty cool name, huh? No it’s not some form of the West Nile Virus. It’s actually commonly referred to as star fruit. Although I bet most people still haven’t heard of it.

We wanted to try a new fruit so we grabbed one of these guys. Turns out it’s really high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. (an interesting and scary aside – according to Wikipedia, this fruit can be poisonous if you have kidney problems!)  Probably not surprising with those features that it would taste citrus-y, but it also has the consistency of an apple. We all thought it was very good and would recommend you try it out too!
