{Winter Resilience Detox} Easy Breakfast Care of Everyday Paleo

When I’m working with people to transition to a Paleo lifestyle, or during a whole food cleanse, one of the first things I ask them is:

“Where do you feel like you’re going to have the most difficulty?”

I ask this because

1. I want to know their fears so that I can support them the way that they need.

2. I want THEM to know their fears so that they’re prepared to face them head on.

About 83% of people answer that they think breakfast is going to be where they get stuck.


There’s no time for eggs in non-paleo land.

There’s only time for cereal.

Bagels, toast and English muffins with margarine are totally not happening on my watch.

Some people feel like it’s impossible to follow a Paleo lifestyle and eat a quick breakfast.

This is where I say:

” You should try making these egg cupcakes from Everyday Paleo. You can make a million of them and have them for breakfast throughout the week.”

It’s true. I say that.

So to show you just how easy and delicious these things are, I thought I’d make some.

Egg Cupcakes (adapted from Everyday Paleo)


12 eggs

1 zucchini

1 red bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

1/2 onion

3 handfuls fresh spinach

1 tsp sea salt

a dash of cayenne pepper

These are not only super portable, they’re super easy to make.

Crack your eggs into a large bowl and whisk them all together.

In stages, put your onion, peppers, and zucchini into the food processor and chop.

Add the veggie mix to the eggs, and process the spinach until finely chopped. Add the spinach to the eggs as well.

I used a dash of cayenne pepper because M likes his eggs spicy…

Mix everything together,

Line a muffin tin with baking cups.

Spoon 1/4 cup of the egg mix into each muffin slot.

Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes, or until the egg is set in the middle.


This recipe ended up making me exactly 24 Egg Cupcakes.

I froze half, and put the rest in the fridge for this week’s quick breakfasts and snacks.

No more breakfast excuses for you!

    Egg cupcakes are great! I also do a variation with eggs, onion, bacon and broccoli – baked in a cast iorn pan. I make it on the weekend and we eat it all week long – less than 1 minute in the microwave and you have a hot, tasty, filling breakfast. If I have bacon cooked ahead of time (which I almost always do) it takes less than 30 minutes to make the whole thing and 15 of that is bake time.

    I also keep bacon on hand – already cooked. I’ll buy a couple large packs of it, cut it into little pieces and cook on the weekends. Then store in a bag in the fridge. In the time it takes to toast and top a bagel, I can scramble a couple of eggs, and add in some crumbled bacon. I also keep cut up green onions which I’ll add to this – if stored in the fridge in an airtight container, green onions will last a week – if you don’t them first!

    There’s NO reason you can’t have a hot, Paleo-friendly breakfast every day! It’s all about preparing ahead – that is what I learned is really the hardest part of eating Paleo. No more going to the cupboard or freezer for something premade…. unless of course, you premade it yourself!

      Yes! Getting in the habit of preparing healthy, Paleo friendly food can be the biggest change you need to make when going Paleo. Snacks are an obvious thing, but not many people consider how to prep for breakfast when first starting out. Thanks for sharing your tips!

      I’m jealous of your cast iron pan! Bacon is a great idea too! I was thinking of making these again using ham as my muffin tin liner…putting a piece of ham in the muffin tin and filling it with the egg mix…I would totally add bacon to that!

      Thanks again for sharing, Jade!
