Two common complaints I read and hear about the Paleo diet or healthy eating in general is that it is 1) expensive, and 2) breakfast is hard. This is my favorite go to for an INEXPENSIVE and SIMPLE perfectly Paleo and macronutrient dense breakfast.
Your ingredients here will vary based on what you have in your fridge and what you have a taste for. The base ingredients are eggs (protein), meat (protein), vegetable (carb), and avocado (fat). Of course, you can leave any of these out and experiment with what you have but if you are looking for a plate of protein, carbs, and fats, try to include a version of each of these ingredients.
The key to making this simple is using fully cooked ingredients from last night’s dinner. In my example here, last night we had “burgers” (ground beef patties, no bun) and “fries” (baked sliced sweet potato) with avocado, this morning the beef, potato, and avocado are going into my egg scramble/hash. I’m also tossing in green onion because I love it.
Chop or dice your ingredients. Add all ingredients to a bowl with one, two, or three eggs, depending on how hungry you are and how many people you are feeding.
Mix everything together with a fork, mashing the avocado a little. Heat a skillet on medium with olive oil, pour mixture into skillet, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and stir everything around till the eggs are fully cooked.
Top with hot sauce or ketchup if you want to, but this combination is so flavorful you will probably decide not to : ))
This recipe makes 1 or more servings depending on how many eggs you use. You should not have leftovers, this is a way to use up all the leftovers.
