    Adding some capers and dill takes this already yummy breakfast to a whole different level!

    is this smoked salmon already cooked? like purchase it in a can? or buy it raw and pre-cook it?

      eleigh80 – You can buy smoked salmon in most grocery stores, as well as in places like Cosco, etc. I’m sure it could be found in a can, but I usually buy it in a plastic bag, sort of like pre-packaged deli slices comes in.

    I agree–add the capers and dill! I always add dill to eggs and to salmon!

    What do I do? None of the breakfast options really seem that great before a workout. Seems like they’d come back up quickly.

    Very delicious breakfast! I’ve neverr had smoked salmon before and didn’t realize it was salty. My husband added a little salt to the eggs and boy this dish was too salty. The avocado helped balance the flavor.

    Can this be made into “muffins” so its easy to take on the go? I’m sure it can, just curious if anyone has tried it and how it turned out. Thanks!

    Have the brekkie after your workout. Premake some egg muffins

    Can you eat avocado too frequently? I love it, and I’m following the recipes, but find myself eating it with most meals. Please advise – I’ll rotate out if I need to.

      Samantha C – It’s only too frequent if you’re eating too many calories, so if you start gaining weight or not losing weight (if that’s a goal of yours), then maybe try cutting back. But until then, it’s a great source of satiating fat and it’s delicious and nutritious, so have at it :)

    Loved this. Particularly our 10 year old daughter who thought she wouldn’t enjoy this “dumb Paleo stuff”. :)
