We’ve gone off-track on what should we be eating. With the realm of quick-meals and processed foods in our diets, our cavemen ancestors would not have been proud of us.
In the early days, they ate what was available to them through nature and were able to live a healthier life. If you don’t know what paleo diet is, it is the diet our ancestors had.
To put it simply, they ate fruits, veggies, and meat. They avoided artificial ingredients, processed foods, and grains. But that’s a challenge in today’s quick-fix economy?
In this article, we’ve curated some of the best paleo breakfast recipes your ancestors would be proud of. But why breakfast?
Well, haven’t you heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Rightly, so. Your diet starts off with your breakfast which sets the tone for the day.
To get the right start to the day, you need the right meal. For the Paleolithic people, breakfast is more important than any other diet style.
For breakfast, people find more shortcuts in form of processed foods to get the starting fuel for the day. Paleo doesn’t allow any of the processed foods or the easy grab grains like cereals.
Here is a list of paleo breakfast recipes that are delicious yet energizing.
