While I truly enjoyed the egg, bacon and spinach scramble I had for breakfast this morning, I certainly tire of savory breakfasts if I eat them too many days in a row. The alternative is often a fruit salad, but this really doesn’t do much to satiate my hunger so it ends up coming back sooner than I’d prefer.

While corn flakes and traditional granola don’t cut it for those trying to start or stay Paleo, there are plenty of deliciously nutty cereal alternatives that are OK to eat and will give you that cereal fix when you need to change things up a bit. Even better, these Paleo cereal recipes can usually be topped with my sweet and healthy fruit salads, resulting in a filling breakfast that isn’t just like the same old omelet. Check out this great list of Paleo cereal recipes and bookmark this page so you can come back to try all our favorites!
