Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) Breakfast Stir-Fry
Stir-fry for breakfast? After adopting a paleo diet in an attempt to get healthier and balance my hormones, I started eating eggs in the morning, usually in the form of an egg/vegetable scramble, and this worked great for me for a while. Sadly, I had to abandon eggs for breakfast when I began the autoimmune paleo diet. No grains + no dairy + no eggs + no nuts/seeds = time to get creative with breakfast! Our culture has a pretty ingrained idea of what constitutes breakfast, but it really can be whatever we want it to be! Just be sure to include protein, healthy fat, and unprocessed whole food carbohydrates like fruit and/or veggies. Breakfast stir-fries are a common autoimmune paleo morning meal, and this recipe is my own personalized version.
While stir-fry may seem like a strange choice for breakfast, it's what I eat while on a healing diet. This recipe I created is satiating, nutrient-dense, and delicious. I feel great eating this in the morning, and you might, too!
- 1 slice of bacon
- 3-4 oz grass-fed ground beef
- 1 oz organic chicken liver, chopped
- handful of chopped veggies (I used zucchini and mushrooms)
- handful of baby greens
- seasoning to taste (I used salt and turmeric)
- Cook bacon in pan on medium-low heat.
- In the meantime, cook ground beef in a separate pan. When almost done, mix in chopped chicken liver, and cook together until both are done.
- When bacon is almost done, add chopped veggies and cook in bacon fat.
- Strain off excess grease from ground beef mixture, and add to the bacon/veggie pan. Stir-fry all together, keeping bacon off to the side in the pan.
- Add baby greens, and cook until wilted.
- Season as desired.
- Serve with a side of fermented sauerkraut for a probiotic boost.
