  • Quick and easy breakfast ideas please

    This question has probably been asked many times before, but I need some help. I am trying to go primal but my biggest problem is breakfast. I have made some nice omelettes and occasionally cooked up bacon and eggs, even cooked a small steak, but in the morning I don't often feel like doing much preparing and cooking food. That is when the idea of simply "pour the cereal out of the box and add milk" seems to really appeal!

    Can others tell me what they do for breakfast? Easy suggestions gratefully received.

      The simplest idea: none. Intermittent fasting.

        Thanks, but is that is appropriate for someone just beginning at primal? I am always hungry in the morning.

          I make a frittata or baked egg/veggie/meat casserole in advance for the week and then just heat it up for brekkie - it works well and is almost as fast as the bowl of cereal.

            Or make a big pot of ground-turkey-sweet-potato hash (or chili, or a hearty soup, or...) and have a bowl for breakfast.

              Eggs. Life without eggs in the morning isn't worth living.

                Protein smoothie or breakfast bar. I really like Perfect Foods Bars and green smoothies only take a min or 2 to make

                  Intermittent fasting is my preferred breakfast option.

                  I realize you might not be there just yet, but hey, what's quicker and more convenient than not having to make a damn thing?

                  Over time, sticking to the paleo/primal diet you might just get to this point as well. A lot of us have.
                  "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                    A can of sardines. Open; eat. Even coffee requires more work than that.

                    Also leftovers from the night before. I don't eat breakfast probably nine days out of ten, but when I do, it's often leftovers.

                    If there aren't enough leftovers to satisfy you, cook them up and throw a couple of eggs on them.

                    If you don't want to cook in the morning, and you have a microwave, make a couple of days worth of fried rice (with meat, eggs, veggies). Put appropriate portion in the microwave and voila! breakfast.

                    Hard boiled eggs. Jerky. And when all else fails, bullet proof coffee. A tablespoon or four of butter in your coffee whipped up in the blender will tide you over 'til lunch or supper.

                      I used to fry or scramble eggs. In the past, I've done yogurt (full fat greek yogurt is quite filling), avocados, bananas, bone broth, or a combination of these with eggs. (I can't quite handle meat and fish in the early mornings)

                      Now I just have coffee and skip breakfast altogether, and have a smoothie when I get hungry, usually in the late morning or around lunch. Meal planning is a lot easier with 2 meals instead of 3...

                        Thanks for the suggestions. I like the idea of left-overs. I might start cooking more at night and deliberately saving some for breakfast (usually everything that is cooked for dinner gets eaten!).

                        Sometimes a Latte coffee will keep me going for a few hours but not always. I had thought of protein shakes but I am trying to eat more whole, unprocessed foods and protein shakes always seem processed to me.

                          I don't know if you eat rice. I make up rice porridge in little crocks by boiling leftover rice in soup stock with some meat. My boyfriend loves to grab one when he's hungry.

                            Hardboiled eggs, just have to peel them
                            You could make egg muffins on the weekend and reheat - I put sausage in the bottom, then chopped veggies and cover with whisked eggs

                              ALWAYS cook extra so you are cooking once and eating twice. Or 3 or 4 times! We immediately divvy up leftovers into lunches for hubby, that go straight to the freezer. Occasionally I keep some leftovers for myself.
