  • Easy Primal Breakfasts for Kids

    I am really wanting to transition my kids to fully primal, but the stickler is breakfast. Breakfast is my time that I wake up, I need easy things that are somewhat "traditional."

    Right now we do sausages on weekdays, bacon on weekends. My oldest will eat fruits and nuts, but my youngest will only eat hard boiled eggs, and only once in a while. He won't eat nuts. Middle will eat anything, but wants LOTS.

    What are some easy or make ahead things that we can do? I really need one time during the day when I am not at the stove cooking for everyone.

    Would they eat frittata?

      Scotch eggs? Paleo waffles or pancakes topped with a mix of cream cheese/sour cream/vanilla stevia? Chopped apple topped w/ a couple tbsp butter, some cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla stevia (nuts, optional) - microwave for 90 secs. then pour heavy cream on it and enjoy.

        BTW, the waffles pancakes and scotch eggs can all be made ahead and put in fridge and freezer.

          I second the frittata recommendation. Or just an egg casserole. I add sauteed garlic, onion, whatever other veggies, raosted red pepper, sausage and about 10 eggs to a casserole dish. Bake until it's set. It keeps well in the fridge and is good cold or hot.

            Soup. Stew. Leftovers. No reason why you have to try to mimic traditional breakfast-y foods.

              I third fritattas, though I make them ahead in a muffin tin and refrigerate/freeze them. There are so many variations you can do--pizza (pepperoni/sausage, tomatoes, mozzarella, oregano), spinach and artichoke, you name it. I've even made a sweet version for my daughter with butternut squash, chicken apple maple sausage, and cinnamon. I also like the idea of paleo/primal pancakes, I wonder if you could make a batch and then freeze them between parchment sheets and reheat as needed?

                Sounds like great ideas! We do quiche from time to time (particularly when the geese are laying,) and that sounds like a great idea to make ahead and have for breakfast. I love the make ahead waffles and such. I used to do that, I will need to check out doing it again.

                Thanks for the inspiration!

                  I've grown fond of a banana or apple with almond butter if you need something quick.

                    Yep! Forgot about those, they are a couple more of our quick favorites.

                      My girl is a bacon hound, and sometimes during the day she'll ask for scrambled eggs. She loves yogurt, too. Occasionally she'll have gluten free cereal (EnviroKids brand). She'll eat frittata, gluten free waffles on special occasions, and would be a total fruit-a-tarian if I allowed her to be. On mornings when we're in a rush, I'll throw a larabar at her.

                        I'd rather not try to re-type it out, so here's a link to a crepe recipe.

                        Aside from making all the other things ahead of time and frying up the crepes, you could make the crepes ahead of time (not sure if this will work with the slightly added thickness crepes) and just assemble them in the morning.

                        Edit: And I make homemade sausage and fry some up along with some eggs for my meat and eggs.
                        See my progress at Cocoa's Corner.

                        Or check out my journal thread here.

                        If I accidently make you a brony or convert you to Taoism, well... you shouldn't have talked to me if you didn't want that to happen.
