    1. 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.

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. This was such a nice change to a normal egg breakfast. My carb loving fiance is liking these recipes on the plan. I am so thankful you have developed such a great product with simple and tasty recipes! The shopping list and linked recipes on the pdf make my shopping and dining easier!! xxOoo ~Christa

  5. 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.

    1. 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 :)

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