Poached Egg Breakfast Salad


What’s for breakfast? This is perhaps the number one question we get at The Paleo Diet® when a person is embarking on the Paleo lifestyle for the first time. For most, making the change from the typical breakfast fare of cereal, bread, pancakes, or granola is challenging and requires a significant change in one’s thinking.  The best advice we can offer is to focus on protein, greens and fruits. Time management in the morning can make getting a healthy breakfast on the table before running out the door to start your day, a daunting goal. We’ve found fast and easy success with this daily favorite. Making the dressing ahead of time, means 10 minutes from start to finish, including having the dishes washed, dried, and put away!
