Keto-Paleo Breakfast Ideas

Keto-Paleo Breakfast Ideas

So, what kinds of things DO I eat for breakfast on a keto-lacto-paleo diet?  Yea, I totally eat breakfast.  Today, we are not talking about IF (Intermittent Fasting).  I know a lot of keto advocates love to skip breakfast–but I just ain’t one of them!  The idea of skipping breakfast just makes me sad.

This is where I have to say that this is not medical advise.  Everyone has different taste buds, and everyone who is eating keto has their own way of doing things.  There are a lot of variations out there.  My way includes breakfast.  Lots of breakfast.  Real food breakfasts–there are no smoothie recipes on this list.  You have been warned.

Keto Blue Cheese Dressing

Keto Blue Cheese Dressing

While making buffalo-chicken stuffed avocados recently, I found myself completely out of blue cheese salad dressing–the one and only commercially made dressing that is zero-carb!!  Rather than run out to the store, I figured I’d try to make my own.  And OMG, this stuff is so good, I may never buy blue cheese salad dressing again!  Not only does it taste as good–or better–than store-bought, Making it myself means I can use full-fat yogurt and home made mayonnaise!  Win-win!

Sometimes Hiking Sucks a Little Bit

So, last weekend was my wedding anniversary and I decided we HAD to do something to celebrate.  Honestly, we never do anything for our anniversary.  The weather is downright awkward at this time of year, here, near Toronto, in April.  Nothing is growing yet, the trees are bare, the ground is brown and grey and often really muddy.

But on this fine day in April, it was -9C out, and very cloudy. Never one to let a weekend go to waste, I got it in my head that we’d go for a hike.  Because I love hiking.  Always, right?

And since it was going to be cold and damp no matter what, why not check out some caves, too, right?  Do you see where my logic went wrong, already?  I decided that we could pack the backpacking stove and pot, and bring a can of chili, maybe some hot herbal tea in our coffee thermos and totally make it a not-foods picnic to chase the cold away.  Yea.  And that would be somehow spectacular and memorable.  Well, I got the memorable part right.

On my list of ‘never been to-‘ places was the Warsaw Caves, north-east of Peterborough, Ontario.  Just a quick 1.25 hours away….
