*You can make your own pico de gallo and guacamole OR buy it in store, like I did…because I’m lazy at breakfast

Probably 3 years ago, I decided to eliminate eggs from my diet and see how my body reacted. I had gone on accutane and my severe cystic acne had completely cleared up, but after a year of being off the medication, I was having some flare-ups again. And when I mentioned my frustration on instagram, someone mentioned that eggs were causing them to break out and maybe I was experiencing the same thing. So I pulled on my big girl pants and I cut out eggs, and you know what happened…my skin cleared up. I stopped having breakouts completely. It was a huge bummer and a huge surprise, especially since I was eating the best quality eggs available. Eggs were a part of my daily life and I knew it would be challenging to cut them out. Maybe not challenging, but definitely depressing. Eggs were always the easiest protein to get in my diet and now I would have to change direction when it came to my meals.

But as soon as I made that switch, the skin issues went away. Then once I would have eggs again thinking I could get away with it, I would have a skin flare up the same day or the next. So eggs and I have broken up completely. Say I’m baking something like a banana bread with eggs, I can usually get away with eating one piece of the banana bread, but I usually don’t push my luck. Surprisingly, the only time I seem to be able to eat eggs is when I’m in another country. I had eggs for breakfast every single day while I was in France because there really wasn’t another option, and I had no skin issues whatsoever. So interesting and strange, especially since I always bought the best quality eggs.

The whole reason I’m telling you this is because I know others have experienced this themselves then feel a little lost at breakfast when it comes what to eat other than eggs. Yes, eggs are super quick to whip up in no time flat so you may have to plan a little differently, but it’s really not too hard once you get the hang of it. Now instead of eggs, I just get some sort of protein. Even yesterday I went out to breakfast and I ordered this green chile hash and asked for chorizo instead of eggs – no problemo. Or say I’m at restaurant that has really no egg-free options, I just ask for a side of breakfast sausage and potatoes, and then I make my own hash. It gets easier the more you do it. But when I asked people a few months ago what kind of recipes you guys were looking for, many people asked for egg-free breakfast ideas. So BOOM! Here you go! Eat your non-egg-eating heart out! No eggs are needed in this breakfast and no break-outs are needed either. Acne is stupid – breakfast shouldn’t be.

    I came to your blog looking for egg-free breakfast ideas and was so excited to see this very timely post! THANK YOU! I just received the results of my Everlywell Food Sensitivity Test…my only high reactivity food was egg whites, with egg yolks being moderately reactive. I was crushed, because eggs are a part of my breakfast EVERY DAY and while I don’t feel like I have symptoms, I now wonder if they might be the cause of my brain fog or slight congestion. With your recipes in hand, I’m less worried about eliminating them from my diet to see how I feel. 🙂

    I thought that I was intolerant to eggs big time. Then I realized it was what they were being fed, soy. So I tried soy for eggs, they feed them flax. Even more allergic. So I tried free-range eggs. Still allergic, because even free ranging chickens are given supplemental feed especially in the winter. I was super upset, as I have several other food intolerances. Then I ordered some eggs from healthy traditions they’re soy free eggs that are fed coconut and fish meal or something. Completely not allergic I ate them every single day. They’re kind of pricey and they ship from Wisconsin But for me they’ve been worth it as there and easy source of protein to cook.

      oooo that’s good to know!! it’s crazy how tough it is to find good eggs these days!
