Ground Beef, Eggs and Avocado Breakfast Bowl [and Whole30ing on!]
So I finally made up my mind…
I WILL be extending my Whole30® challenge all the way through August after all! This means that, when all is said and done, I will have been Whole30ing for a total of 62 consecutive days!
Although I decided that I would make a small change to the rules that I’d set for myself when I initially started on July 1st, and that is to reintroduce nuts BUT only if used as part of a recipe. Never as a snack and even less in the form of a spoonable treat.
Other than that, the rules remain unchanged.
This means no food after dinner. The last bite off my dinner plate shall be my last bite of food for the day.
No matter what time dinner is at.
WOOO! I feel super excited about this now. Call me crazy, but I really enjoy this Whole30® thing (to think that it took me well over a year to finally convince myself to give it a try) and I LOVE coming up with a whole bunch of simple recipes and dishes that are compliant with this, let’s face it, rather challenging way of eating.
Almost as much as I love baking…
For those of you that are currently taking the challenge, rejoice, for this means I’ll be sharing a whole bunch of Whole30® compliant recipes with you guys all the way to the end of the month.
And there probably will be one or two more of my super duper Breakfast Bowls in the lot, too!
And for those of you who are curious to see what I eat all through this challenge, I’m still sharing each and every one of my meals over on Instagram and I’ll sometimes send a few of them over to my Facebook page, too.
Instagram would also be the best place to get sneak peeks at some of my upcoming recipes, too, like this absolutely crazy yummy Liver Pâté, for instance…
Or this delicious Coconut Orange Omelet. You read that one right. Coconut Orange. It’s to die for!
But for now let’s focus on this current recipe.
While it might not be super exotic or inventive, this is one breakfast bowl that is sure to satisfy.
I mean hey, you’ve got ground beef in there, scrambled eggs, nutty,meaty mushrooms, warm and creamy avocado and loads of yummy black olives. What’s there not to like?
I’m thinking that a splash of beautiful Homemade Paleo Sriracha dribbled right over the whole thing would take this Breakfast Bowl to a whole new level, too!
Ooooh. I gotta make me some of that!
I’m telling you, the thought of waking up to one of those scrumptious bowls of goodness is enough to get me out of my bed with a big smile on my face.
And enough to make me forget all about pancakes, oatmeal and cereal, too!
Ground Beef, Eggs and Avocado Breakfast Bowl
- 1 small onion, sliced
- 6-8 medium mushrooms, sliced
- 150 g grassfed ground beef
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 small avocado, diced
- 10-12 pitted black olives, sliced
- In a heavy skillet set over medium high heat melt a little bit of coconut oil. When oil is nice and hot, add onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook until the veggies are fragrant and softened, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add ground beef and smoked paprika and continue cooking until the beef is no longer pink. Remove that to a plate.
- Add eggs to the skillet and scramble them to your liking.
- Return beef to the pan, add avocado and sliced olives.
- Continue cooking just to slightly warm up the avocados and olives, about 45 seconds to a minute.
- Transfer to a pretty bowl, garnish with parsley if desired, sit yourself down and enjoy!

Wow that’s so awesome that you are continuing with the Whole30! I’m on day 23 and let me tell you I have no intention of quitting either! I feel so good, my workouts have gotten harder and longer with absolutely no muscle aches or fatigue after (yesterday I biked 34 miles and I’m feeling *awesome* today!) Totally amazing! Anyway thanks so for this recipe it looks soo yummy!!
Happy to hear that the Whole30 is really working well for you, Christine! Looks like it will have had a profound impact on your life also! 😀
That’s what I call a proper POWER breakfast!
And I totally want to agree with you! I’m especially lovin’ the use of “proper” here! 🙂
I’ve been doing this for around three weeks now but officially starting today finally eliminating all sugar! I really have no need or craving for it any longer, it’s just a habit. Anyway… I did a variation of this this morning. I used a ground beef & pork paleo meatloaf that I made, ground it up and warmed it in grass fed butter, whipped up some eggs and put them on top and oh my… What a yummy and satisfying breakfast! I didn’t add any other veggies because there were a ton of them in the meatloaf I made and I skipped the avocado this morning. This was totally delicious and will most certainly get me through my morning dance class and full through most of the day. Love it!
YAY! Real happy to hear, and thanks a bunch for sharing! I greatly appreciate that.
And now, you just got me wanting to do a Whole30 again. I think I’ll give it a shot in November, why not? Thanks for that, too! 🙂
I’ve been doing some weird variation of this for the last week with ground beef, cumin, eggs and onions. Was looking for something new and found this. Never thought to put avocados and black olives with this. So I ditched the cumin and went with paprika. I have a bunch of lettuce so I threw this on a lettuce wrap and put some Paleochef Paleo Sriracha sauce on top. Very, very good and a great change to my previous recipe. Might also be good on coconut oil tortillas. Great recipe, thanks!
Coconut Oil Tortillas? I am intrigued. Highly intrigued! Do you make those yourself?
I love this recipe I am just confused about the nutrition facts you have posted. I am not sure how anything added up to 25 grams of carbs and such low fiber content. The only higher carb item is the avocado, but its got 12g carbs w/ 10g fiber per serving.
The net carbs seem really high and this should be, in theory, an excellent keto meal.
I agree that the dietary fiber contents seems a little low, but the onion is also fairly high in carbs… I think that this one would have to be left out for a lower carb count / keto meal.
Dude! Nobody cares about your life. Just get to the recipe, bro.
