Breakfast of Titans

My new ebook, The Paleo Athlete, is now available ! It's 225 pages of practical advice, science, tips and recipes to help you dial in your performance in any sport. Whether your sport focuses on strength & power, high-intensity training or endurance, you'll find something useful!

Do you have 5 minutes? Literally 5 minutes, including time to heat up the pan (okay…5:02)? Then you have enough time to cook up a nutritious dish instead of deferring to something processed or pre-made. Contained within is a solid dose of protein, healthy fats and some good carbs. Breakfast of Titans is one of the easiest things to make. Why Titans you ask? They were gods of unmatched strength, and plus Craig Zielinski of @bamfathletics named it so…and I’m not one to argue with that. If you don’t like smoked salmon, you could substitute in any leftover meat of choice. Another suggestion to make this breakfast even simpler is to roast a bunch of sweet potatoes (375 degrees for about 45 minutes) in the oven once or twice a week to always have them on hand.


  • 4 oz wild smoked salmon
  • 3-4 eggs
  • Big handful of spinach
  • Coconut oil or fat of choice

1. Heat a medium-sized skillet on medium heat. Add a spoonful of coconut oil, butter, bacon fat, etc.

2. Add smoked salmon, break up into chunks and cook for about a minute.

3. Crack eggs directly into the pan and scramble.

4. When the eggs are almost completely cooked through, add spinach on top and stir around until wilted.

5. Serve with sweet potato on the side.

      That’s a great idea. The helpful thing about this recipe is that it’s pretty easy to customize with any meat or leftovers you have in the fridge!

    Where would smoked salmon be located in the grocery store? Is it with the packaged deli meats? How can I be sure it is wild caught and clean (no added preservatives)? Thanks!

      Hi there! I usually find it in/near the seafood department of the grocery store. You’ll have to read the label. It would say “wild caught” or “wild” and to be sure it’s clean, you’d look for no extra preservatives in the ingredients. Many times, smoked salmon will contain brown sugar or maple syrup, so you’ll have to decide if you’re okay with that or not. If it has anything that sounds like a chemical whose name you can’t pronounce, I’d pass. Hope that helps!
