While eggs are a wonderful breakfast option, many people need egg-free breakfast recipes for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s the texture, taste, or smell, there are people who find eggs entirely undesirable no matter how they’re prepared.

Because eggs are one of the most allergenic foods, there are also many people who can’t consume eggs due to an egg allergy. Egg whites are packed with allergenic proteins because the white of an egg is responsible for protecting the yolk from pathogens while the embryo grows.

People with autoimmune conditions, which are diseases where the immune system is attacking “self,” can be sensitive to eggs as well. Egg whites contain a proteolytic enzyme called lysozyme, which has the unique ability to pass through the gut barrier. When this happens, lysozymes can “leak” other allergenic proteins found in egg whites into the bloodstream at the same time.

For healthy individuals, lysozymes usually have little negative effects. However, those with autoimmune conditions tend to have exaggerated immune and inflammatory responses to eggs, and it can trigger the creation of antibodies to both the “leaked” proteins and the body’s own tissue.

I know. HUGE bummer.

But, never fear. For people who don’t like eggs, or – have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs, breakfast is not a lost cause. Below, I’ve listed a entire week’s worth of nourishing egg free breakfast recipes and bonus ideas that are sure to fill you up and give you the energy you need to punch the day in the face. Yes, in a good way.

Some of the egg free breakfast recipes below serve two, or can easily be doubled to serve a family or create leftovers.

7 Egg Free Breakfast Recipes

Sweet Potato Hash - Coconuts & Kettlebells

In a skillet over medium heat, cook the diced sweet potatoes for 7-10 minutes in coconut oil, salt and pepper.
