10 quick and healthy Paleo breakfasts


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.
