  • Best Paleo Carbs?

    Hey...

    Breakfast is lacking any carbs. I don't really want potato or sweetpotato as I have it else where in my diet.

    What are some good carbs I can include?

    I eat fruit for my early morning carbs. Berries, bananas, oranges, pomegranate, grapes and so on all taste great and contain plenty of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. Carrots and other root veggies are also good with eggs and steak in the morning.
    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

      Kabocha squash or any other winter squash roasted with coconut oil and cinnamon. Delicious!

        I eat avocado a lot in the morning. It is only about 13 carbs for a whole one.

              Yogurt is not that high in carbs, but it's a good way to get in your probiotics too, if you're dairy-tolerant (though you can make/buy it from coconut milk).

                You shouldn't need carbs at breakfast.

                Best sources of carbs for me are sweet potatoes, white potatoes without the skins, white rice, goat's/sheep's yoghurt (as a balanced source), bananas fried in coconut oil.

                  Breakfast today was the same as supper yesterday...meat & veg with ample fat. Leftovers are great for breakfast, but ultimately you're going to repeat a food and/or food group within 24 hours. There's nothing wrong with that.

                  Carbs are in the veggies and fruit. If you mean "where are some good *starchy* carbs to replace the grain based breakfasts I used to eat," you're limited to what grows out of the ground.

                  Of course, if you can't get used to eating dinner or lunch for breakfast, you can skip bfast altogether.

                    Plantains are great. Boiled, fried, hashed, or mashed, they can be treated like potatoes (albeit with a different flavor profile) because of their high starch content. They aren't overly sweet like a lot of fruits though, so don't expect them to taste too great if eaten raw.

                      I don't want hunger pains during the day so I don't have any carbs in the morning, well, the few that are in eggs, uncured bacon and an ounce or 2 in red grapefruit juice to take a vitamin (Dr Fuhrman's for women). I save carbs (1/2 sweet pot, small amt fruit) for evening which help me sleep great. (BAS w/chicken or salmon for lunch and green tea.)

                          Well, it's fall and I dote on seasonality, so I'd recommend squashes. What I do for breakfast with squashes is, I cook them the night before. Then I slice up a bit and fry it with bacon, onion, maybe sausage, carrot, celery and a tomato with SPICES. What type of spices is up to you. XD Salt and pepper of course! I call it my hash. Oh, you can also add an egg too, or use bone broth if you'd rather it were soupy. Ah, fun times!

                              I limit my carbs as much as possible but if I am needing the extra boost I will eat berries or nuts for breakfast. What about butternut squash with sweet flavors like cinnamon/nutmeg? Or if you eat fruits besides berries...apples, bananas...all super sugary. I don't eat banana but the rare apple revs me up in the morning.
