Shop This Paleo Breakfast Bowl

I get my produce from my local farmer’s market, but Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods are great options to save time and have organic produce shipped to your door!

Simply Organic Spices

I love this brand of organic spices, they are always the freshest, most vividly colorful and most flavorful. Some of my favorites are oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary (feel free to experiment with this recipe!).

Get them for 25% or more off at Vitacost.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is great for high-heat cooking because it’s much more heat-resistant than coconut oil or olive oil. It can withstand temperatures up to 520°F.

I use Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, which is 36% off at Vitacost.

Organic Eggs

Ideally, eggs should be organic and pasture-raised to ensure the chickens have been raised and fed as naturally as possible, giving you the healthiest eggs.

Get a dozen organic eggs for $5.21 from Amazon Fresh.

Ingredients

Spiced Cauliflower

  • 1 tsp. avocado oil can use olive or coconut oil instead
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets chopped small
  • pink salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Bowl

  • 1-2 cups baby arugula
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice about 1/4 of a lemon
  • pink salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 avocado sliced, OPTIONAL

Scrambled Eggs

  • 1 tsp. avocado oil can use olive or coconut oil instead
  • 2 eggs organic and pasture-raised or free range
  • pink salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • First, make the cauliflower: Heat a medium or large sized skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan, and when hot, add the onion, garlic, and spices, except salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes before adding the cauliflower along with 1-2 tablespoons of water. Let cook for 7-10 minutes until soft, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the bowl by adding the arugula and lightly dressing with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, to taste. When cauliflower is done, put it on top of the arugula.
  • Clean the pan and return to stove top (or you can skip cleaning, the eggs will look a little darker from the spices, but they will pick up the flavor of the spices). Crack the eggs into a bowl and scramble with a fork. Turn the pan to medium heat, add a teaspoon of oil to the pan, then when hot, add the eggs. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Use a fork to stir once in a while, for a few minutes, until eggs are yellow and cooked fully through. Add to the arugula/cauliflower bowl.
  • Top with sliced avocado if desired.

Recipe Notes

If you have some on hand, you can top with fresh chopped parsley or herbs if desired.
