I’ve been on a mission to get more protein in my kids in the morning before school. They don’t eat paleo exclusively and breakfast is where they really want to have their grains and carbs. For the most part I don’t push, but offer food I think is better for them. Sometimes they go for it and sometimes they don’t. Last week I had a little extra weekend time and decided to make egg cups to keep in the fridge for the week’s breakfasts. The boy wanted bacon and cheese in his and the girl wanted pizza flavored. I wasn’t sure exactly how to go about that, but I gave it a shot and she seemed to like them. Each morning, she would get out one of her egg cups, put it in the microwave for a few seconds to knock off the chill and gobbled it down. Give them a try!
Pizza Egg Cups
6 slices of bacon cut in half
6 Tbs pizza or pasta sauce (I like classic or newman’s own)
optional : olives, peppers, mushrooms, or other pizza toppings.
Beat 6 eggs in a bowl with a fork. In a muffin tin, lay half of a slice of bacon across the bottom then lay the other half on top of it making an X in the bottom of your pan. Spoon in egg until it reaches almost to the top of the muffin cup. Place 1 Tbs of sauce in the middle of the egg then top with pepperoni slice. Add any optional ingredients you would like. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until eggs are set. Cool then eat!
I’m not nearly as good as Cavegirl Kate about photographing my meals, but here are a few I managed to remember to document. I hope they give you some ideas!
Salmon Fillet with roasted beets and carrots and salad
Spinach salad with steak and caramelized onions
Brunch out at a restaurant: California omelet (eggs, bacon, tomatoes, peppers) topped with avacado, salsa, sour cream (I do some dairy.) and green onions.
Three Fried sunny side up eggs (I have a great recipe for making the best fried eggs. I’ll post that another day.), olives and guacamole
Pizza egg cups (eggs bacon, pizza sauce and pepperoni) Recipe to follow!
Leftover lunch: hamburger patty, roasted asparagus and olives
Sunday dinner on the grill: Pork chops and fruit skewers (apple and pineapple chunks)

We’re having such fun on this adventure and love sharing our journey and the things we’ve learned along the way. We hope you find it nearly as exciting as we do, and we hope you continue to let us know what we can do to make your Paleo lifestyle even more fulfilling.
