Paleo Breakfast Recipe: Vegetable Egg Quiche


Since three weeks I try the paleo diet (also known as stone age diet). I just thought that it might help me to regulate my gut flora because I often suffer from stomachache and cramps. That means, I renounce milk and cereal products. In addition, I waive highly processed foods such as ready meals and fast food (thats sometimes really hard).

So what is left for me to eat? A lot of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs as well as meat and fish. I am not a big meat eater. So I try to eat more fish than meat, max. 2-3 times a week. However, I prefer to try out recipes that are without meat and fish.

In principle I was able to adjust well to the paleo diet. The most difficult meal for me is the parleo breakfast. I find it hard to refuse buns, cheese, yogurt, milk and cereals. This is why I ‘ve come up with a nice paleo recipe for breakfast.

2. Fry the onions with the spinach and one teaspoon of coconut oil in the frying pan. I always buy and take the vegan Bio-Kokosöl from Dr. Goerg. Its quite expensive (15 EUR for 200 ml) but it really has a great taste. Don’t forget to preheat oven to 180 degrees.

5. Put the cake tin for 40 minutes in the oven. Check from time to time with a wooden stick, if the egg is getting hard.

And ready is your breakfast! In the morning I take always a piece and warm it up in the microwave for about 2.5 minutes.

Bon appetit!
