Breakfast is one of the more challenging meals when following AIP, Paleo or any diet for that matter.
It helps to reframe the definition of "breakfast" and focus on the benefits of keeping blood sugar balanced, nutrition high and fuelling energy and concentration when breaking-fast.
This stew is a family favourite not only for dinner, but breakfast. In fact, my autoimmune kid says she feels so much better throughout the day when she starts her day this way.
Feel free to substitute or add in other vegetables or meat your family might like. This version is AIP-friendly and how my family likes it. I also find that kids prefer when the vegetables are chopped into smaller pieces. It's easier for the mouths and to chew when they are still wiping the sleep from their eyes.
