For many, Paleo is a way of life, not a diet. If you’ve just started on the Paleo diet or are keen to give it a go, nutritionist and author Michele Chevalley Hedge from A Healthy View has some sage words of advice: “Use it as a template but do not become a Paleo perfectionist.” Chevalley Hedge says that by simply taking Paleo’s underlying principals of clean eating, whole foods, lots of quality protein, good fats, and vegetable carbohydrates, you have a prescription for excellent nutrition. Here are some of Chevalley Hedges’s fave Paleo breakfasts to grab and go for an early morning start.
1. Fruit smoothie
2. Nutty granola
This is a mixture of nuts, seeds and shredded coconut tossed with a squeeze of orange juice and rind.

6. Blueberry soup
Try having blueberries topped with goat, sheep, or almond/coconut milk, plain unflavoured yogurt and smothered in seeds and nuts.
7. Mexican eggs
Scramble, poach, or bake eggs, add vegies, a slice of avocado and top with salsa.

Ask anyone of the many Paleo peeps out there and they will tell you they got over their fear of leftovers on the first bite of a warm, nourishingbreakfast. When you’re making dinner simply make extra to heat up again the next morning. Too easy!
