Chorizo is a popular breakfast meat that can be cooked and served in a variety of ways. In this article we will explore if this popular breakfast meat is OK on the Paleolithic diet.
Most Chorizo blends are OK to eat on the Paleo diet! Traditional Chorizo is made of a blend of pork, salt, peppers, and other spices – all of which are all-natural and healthy – just keep an eye on the pork fat!
Why is Chorizo Paleo?
Chorizo is safe to eat on the Paleo diet because all of the ingredients in the blend are all-natural, unprocessed, and relatively healthy to eat. It is important to remember that pork can be high in fat, cholesterol, sodium and calories so don’t overdo it in your omelet or with your scrambled eggs.
Chorizo Paleo Recipes
There is no ‘one’ Chorizo recipe or blend – each region and family has their own special blend. Some like it hot and spicy while others prefer a mild blend. Almost every popular ingredient that can be mixed into a Chorizo blend is OK on Paleo – but you will likely need a few hours of cardio later in the day to burn off the calories!
Is Chorizo a Healthy Choice?
It is no secret that Chorizo is not the healthiest breakfast meat. Even though all the ingredients in most Chorizo blends are paleo-friendly – and OK to eat on their own – the fatty pork meat is high in cholesterol and not a healthy option to eat every morning. If you are looking for a slice of Paleo-friendly breakfast meat that has fewer calories and is healthier we recommend egg whites, sliced ham, or turkey.
