Try as we might, many of us find the temptation of pancakes too hard to resist. Maybe it’s the sweet, buttery aroma of the batter on the griddle or the soft doughy texture, or that eating something with the word “cake” in it for breakfast just feels so deliciously naughty. But it doesn’t have to be. There are decent Primal substitutes. Pancakes made with almond meal or coconut flour are a good option, but can be pretty heavy and, for some, overly filling. And then there’s this dish sent in by Jack Etherington for the Primal Cookbook Challenge. His Almond Banana Pancakes contain just three ingredients: banana, egg and almond butter. You can whip up a batch in five minutes flat and top the pancakes with a pat of butter, a scoop of nut butter, or fresh berries.

Bacon pancakes sound like a sinful breakfast treat, but these slightly sweet, mostly savory cakes require no repentance. Fluffy, moist, and salty with just a hint of sweetness, bacon pancakes can be served with a light drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of sour cream and a hit of hot sauce.
Primal and paleo pancakes are a far cry from diner-style pancakes made from all-purpose flour and browned in butter on a hot griddle. But, our bacon pancakes provide a grain-free salty, smoky breakfast treat with a chewy, sturdy texture. These aren’t bacon slices cocooned by airy, fluffy pancakes that get drowned in syrup the minute they hit the serving plate, rendering the once-crisp centerpiece soggy and flabby when it touches the tongue.

These aren’t fried eggs, nor are they scrambled. The eggs in these tacos are just slightly set, with a warm, runny yolk that is barely scrambled into the whites. Slide one of these gently cooked eggs into a warm tortilla, top with cool avocado and lime and slices of jalapeno and you’ve got the perfect breakfast taco. Although these egg tacos are delicious for dinner, too.
The main reason to gently scramble an egg is that it tastes delicious. The whites are fully cooked, but the yolk is runny, which gives the egg a soft and creamy texture. The second reason to gently scramble an egg, rather than whisk it all together and cook it over high heat, is that the cholesterol stays intact. Meaning it’s not oxidized, which is a healthier way to enjoy eggs.

It’s hard to decide which is more delicious, these savory bacon and cheddar keto muffins, or the original blueberry flavor. Both flavors are made from the same basic recipe with a simple gluten-free ingredient list that includes almond flour, butter, heavy cream and an egg.
The lightly sweetened blueberry version is a delicious morning treat, but this combination of bacon and sharp cheddar is equally hard to resist. Who doesn’t love bacon? These rich and flavorful muffins are perfect for busy mornings (keep a batch in the fridge or freeze, and warm one in the microwave) or for leisurely weekend brunches.

Coffee is a perpetual topic of interest, and for good reason: Almost everyone drinks it, almost everyone is passionate about it, and it’s packed with compounds that are pretty darn good for you. One aspect of coffee I’ve never explored, however, is how coffee brewing methods affect its health effects.
What’s healthier—filtered or unfiltered? Dark roast or light roast? Pre-ground or whole bean? French press or drip? Let’s get to it.
