Here is another healthy breakfast option! My version of a Paleo Veggie Breakfast Bowl.
This Paleo Breakfast Bowl will satisfy your belly and will give you energy to start your day!
Lately, my husband and I have really been watching what we eat and working out. We have done a good job at eliminating as much sugar as possible, drinking more water, and less carbs. However, the best way to lose weight is to eat healthy. In fact, some say, if you eat a very clean diet you can lose pounds upon pounds of fat. We have been eating leaner and more responsible. However, I know we could lose more weight if we can simply eat more vegetables. We are not large veggie eaters. It is really difficult for me to find ways to incorporate veggies into our diet in ways that it taste good. Until now!
It is really difficult to get fat by eating vegetables. In fact, if you eat more vegetables they will help you feel full while your body burns the fat on your body for energy. Basically, the less fat you put into your body, the your body will burn more fat that is already on your body. Make sense? I’m sure there is a more complicated way to say that, but that is really all you need to do. More veggies, fruits, and lean meat the weight will come flying off. When I came across this recipe idea I thought it was divine intervention. I was watching The Pioneer Woman and she made a breakfast bowl, a lot like this one. Although it looked good, I wanted to recreate it in a way that I would eat the dish. What I did was added some smoked Turkey Sausage and made a Paleo Hollandaise sauce for some extra creaminess. Can we say “WIN”?!
I have mentally committed to eating this dish every morning for breakfast for a couple reason.
1. I need more veggies in my diet and why not start my day off with a bowl of them?!
2. If you constantly eat some of the things you don’t like, you will eventually learn to enjoy them ( at least that is what I was told).
The other amazing thing I love about this dish is you can add whatever veggies you want. You can add mushrooms, peppers, spinach, kale, or whatever the heck you want! As long as you load up on veggies. AND…the sausage gives the dish protein and flavor. Not to mention the poached egg and Paleo Hollandaise sauce. I mean it doesn’t even taste like something bad for you. Without the Hollandaise the dish is only 243 calories and only 4 grams of sugar. I swear you will love me for this dish. I recommend eating 1 piece of Ezekiel bread along with this dish for extra fiber and protein. You don’t have to thank me now just remember these words for the future “you’re welcome”.
Here is a link for the Paleo Hollandaise sauce that can give you and idea of the calories that may be in a serving of the sauce. This is not exactly how I made it but close enough. I just didn’t use the mustard.

Paleo Veggie Breakfast Bowl
- Total Time: 25 mins
- Yield: 4 1x
Start your morning with a bowl of veggies! Just add sausage, poached egg, and Paleo Hollandaise sauce for added flavor!
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 1/2 medium Zucchini, diced
- 1 1/2 medium Yellow Squash, diced
- 13 oz. Smoked Turkey Sausage
- 2 tsp. salt

- 4 eggs, poached
- 2 egg yolks
- 1/2 c. Ghee (clarified butter), melted
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. salt

- In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the zucchini, squash, and sausage and begin to saute for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, begin poaching your eggs and set aside.
- TO POACH AN EGG: Bring a large sauce pan filled with water to slightly simmer. The water is ready when it begins to steam. Add a tablespoon of vinegar. Crack an egg in a ramekin. Carefully pour the egg into the water and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes until all whites are congealed. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.
- Once the veggie blend and sausage is cooked, pour into a bowl, place a poached egg on top, and pour a spoonful of Hollandaise on top.
- TO MAKE HOLLANDAISE: Melt the clarified butter. Add the egg yolks to a blender and turn on low. Slowly pour in the melted clarified butter with a thin stream. Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper while still blending and serve.
