2. Include quality protein
It's important to include quality protein at every meal, and seeing as paleo eliminates dairy this usually means meat and eggs! We've got no qualms with hot breakfasts, BUT both meat and eggs tend to be high in saturated fat, which can elelvate your cholesterol levels.

High cholesterol is associated with cardiovascular diesease, but a healthy person can have around 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day. To give you an example of how small an amount this is, one 50 gram egg contains around 72 per cent of your daily cholesterol  intake. Fatty meat is also a cholesterol culprit, and eating too much meat in general has been linked with digestive problems and even bowel cancer. Be sure to select lean meats and try not to overdo it.
