I'm really in love with breakfast that is easy, especially since my mornings are so crazy! I'm up at 4AM to workout, and then after working out, I "work" for a few hours before noshing on breakfast. Sometimes, I get hungry while working and it is such a lifesaver to have something portable.
My new favorite grab it and eat breakfast is the burrito. I don't eat grains like wheat, so I usually wrap mine up in a collard leaf, but I've included a tortilla in this recipe because tortillas are just so darn delicious.
You can make this egg burrito several days in advance. I make a few of them at a time so there is always something in the fridge.

How you do solve the "snacking" problem?
Have on-the-go prepacked meals ready to go in the fridge. Prepacked meals are ideal because they are easy to take with you when you know you won't be home in time to stave off an empty belly. Flexible meals can be packed into bento boxes, Tupperware, or any other storage containers that you have. Segment the portions using little cups, containers or plastics bags.
The Paleo world has really taken a stab at a lot of foods. I was speaking with a friend the other day who tried to tell me that oatmeal is off her list. She doesn't eat oatmeal. Okay, fine. But why? All she could tell me was oatmeal wasn't paleo; oatmeal was a toxic substance.
Oh jeepers. Okay. While I am not a fan of toxic substances, namely boxed foods, processed sugars and the like, I love oatmeal.

Our pancakes combine rich nondairy yogurt, juicy blueberries and the warmth of nutmeg. The result? Pancakes that are light fluffy and protein-rich.
