Yam, Apple & Kale Paleo Skillet Breakfast

Tired of the same old paleo breakfast?

It’s easy to fall into a breakfast rut…the same thing every morning.

Well here’s a great way to jumpstart your day with something different…an extra jolt of healthy goodness to wake up your tired taste buds.whole30 compliant recipe mark

And let me tell you, this one tastes as good as it looks!

You’ve got a yam (or sweet potato) in there, a couple of apples, some fresh kale (or spinach) and of course your tried and true paleo breakfast friends, bacon and eggs.

Look how easy this one is to whip up…

Just peel and chop your potato and apples, and then dice up an onion – there you go, that’s your biggest chore. Nothing to it, right? [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-wqsf83′]

Next you just fry up some bacon, leave a little of that yummy fat in the pan, and then sauté your breakfast goodies.

Finally cook up your eggs any style you like, and serve with generous heaping helpings of this yam, apple and kale mix on the side.

That’s it. Real easy. So good. A morning eye-opener – and Whole30-approved breakfast – that’s almost as good as coffee.

Give it a try! Enjoy!
