What do I eat for breakfast on the AIP?
This might be the most common question folks ask when they start the autoimmune protocol. Once I let go of the idea of a traditional North American breakfast of eggs, bread, or cereal, things got easier for me because my mindset shifted. While I eat AIP pancakes and bacon or baked n’oatmeal with sausage every now and then, my breakfasts are more typically savory, including protein, veggies and complex carbohydrates.
This recipe is one of my go-to egg-free breakfasts and I can’t believe it’s taken me nearly 2 years to get it on the blog. This AIP sweet potato hash is made in one pan, and loaded with mushrooms, kale, fresh herbs and of course, sweet potatoes. What’s not to love?
Here’s what you need for this Eggless Paleo Breakfast Hash recipe:
- Sweet Potatoes – In this recipe, I opted for Japanese sweet potatoes because they’re my absolute favorite. You can use Hanna sweet potatoes or any other variety – they all work well here.
- Mushrooms – I used button mushrooms, cremini and portobello would also work!
- Bacon – for AIP you’ll want to ensure it’s naturally cured with no artificial ingredients or spices (except for salt)
- Kale – feel free to use another leafy green like spinach or chard here!
- Parsley, cilantro, green onions or other fresh herbs of choice. For example, I have used fresh basil, and thyme in this recipe when that was what I had on hand.
AIP Sweet Potato Hash FAQs
Is bacon AIP compliant?
It can be. Dr. Sarah Ballantyne includes bacon as an option for folks looking for breakfast proteins on the AIP. As noted above, you want to ensure that your bacon is naturally cured and contains no artificial ingredients. Eileen Laird from Phoenix Helix writes more about bacon on the AIP here.
How do I store this?
My favorite way to store this breakfast hash is to portion out 4-5 portions and store in individual containers for easy access to breakfast throughout the week. Alternatively, store in one large container in the fridge. It keeps well for about 5 days. I haven’t tried freezing.
Can I omit the bacon?
if you choose to omit the bacon in this sweet potato hash, I’d suggest substituting with something like ground pork or turkey for some protein. You’ll need to use olive or avocado oil to cook the meat in this case, and you’ll want to add additional salt and perhaps other dried herbs to season the meat.
