• Breakfast of Titans

    Breakfast of Titans | stupideasypaleo.comDo 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 F for about 45 minutes) in the oven once or twice a week to always have them on hand.

    Breakfast of Titans

    • 3-4 eggs
    • Big handful of spinach
    • Coconut oil or fat of choice

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

    2. 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!

      1. 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!

    3. Thank you for this. This is one of my go-to breakfasts. I switch up the salmon with sausages now and then, and the spinach with other leafy greens, but I stick to the basic three-ingredient template.

      I also made a Filipino variation for a Filipino Whole30 food project I’ve been doing this month. I used smoked scad and sweet potato greens as subs, two foods common in the Philippines. I posted the recipe in my blog, but I made sure to acknowledge that the original recipe came from you.

      Thanks again!
