What to Eat for Breakfast on AIP Paleo: 40 Fantastic Recipes {Whole30-friendly}

One of the hardest parts about a special diet like Paleo, Whole30, or the autoimmune protocol (AIP Paleo) is figuring out what to eat for breakfast.

On the SAD (Standard American Diet), we’re used to grain in practically all of our breakfast foods. Cereal, muffins, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, toaster pastries, doughnuts, bagels… So what’s a grain-free mama to do?

And if you’re used to eggs as a fallback breakfast (we had a LOT of eggs when we did the Whole30 earlier this year), you’ll still find yourself in a tight spot on the AIP.

Side note: the AIP can be a very helpful reset for people struggling with autoimmunity, and I think Paleo has a lot to offer people. But it’s not exactly how my family eats anymore. If you’re curious, you can take a look at my template for a healthy diet.
