  • Breakfast!

    I'm looking for breakfast ideas, so hoping you can spam me with your favorites or just what you're eating today/this week.

    I've found that I need to have protein and fat in the morning, IF hasn't worked for me so far unless it's unintentional (like oversleeping on a weekend). But I'm also slow getting started in the morning and have a long commute, so I try to cook things on the weekend and reheat during the week.

    Here is what I pre-made for this week:
    Bacon
    Cut up fruit
    Eggs scrambled with zucchini, red pepper, carrots, flaxseed meal, and grainy mustard, in coconut oil
    Hash of sweet potatoes, onions, and leftover porkchops, diced up and cooked in bacon fat

    soup (veges + meat)

        I like 2 eggs on the bed of egg whites with a fresh veggie, like a cucumber.
        If I have leftover salmon, I'll eat that, because I can eat salmon for every meal.
        On a carb-up day, I like quark with tomato or cucumber/radish+dill.
        Crab meat and egg white sometimes for a souffle-like thinggie.
        If I had good broth, hot broth with some meat (beef) or a couple of eggs poached in it makes a great breakfast.

          I make these on the weekend and freeze them, then have a couple for breakfast. They heat well in the microwave!


          Breakfast Mushroom Egg Cups

          2 T butter plus more to butter pan (or use bacon grease)
          4 oz sliced mushrooms
          c chopped yellow onion
          9 thin round slices of ham
          1/3 c shredded Cheddar cheese
          6 large eggs, beaten

          Preheat oven to 375F. Grease 9 medium-size cups of muffin pan; set aside.

          Melt butter in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 4 minutes or until onion is tender; set aside.

          Line each muffin cup with a slice of ham, with edge just above rim of pan. Spoon mushroom mixture evenly into ham-lined cups. Top each evenly with cheese. Pour beaten eggs evenly over mushrooms and cheese.

          Bake 15-20 minutes or until knife inserted in centers comes out clean. Let stand in pan 2 minutes. Run table knife around edge of cups to loosen.

          Makes 9.
          Per each:
          Calories 175
          Fat 12g
          Carbs 2.25g

            I just made stuffed tomatoes over the weekend. scoop out a tomato- it doesn't have to be clean, just enough room for a T or 2 of pesto (I have a lot of basil, so plenty of pesto on hand) and then crack an egg into it. I sprinkle it with a little parmesan and then bake it at 350 for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how runny I want my yolk. I made 4 for 2 of us and they were out of this world.

              Honestly, I eat anything for breakfast - dinner leftovers, a can of tuna, or "normal" breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, etc.). It's all fair game to me.

              On Saturday I made a pretty good breakfast of the 2-minute coconut bread with lemon juice and lemon zest added to the batter, split it in half and topped it with an apple cooked in butter and cinnamon, and topped all of that with home-made coconut cream. Slightly higher carb than my usual first meal of the day, but I had a 14-mile bike ride ahead of me so I wanted a bit of a boost!

              But, really, breakfast (or any meal for that matter) is only limited if you let it! Think outside the box. I eat "breakfast for dinner" all the time, and leftovers for breakfast, too. Just eat what you're in the mood for!

                Stop thinking of it as breakfast, and start thinking of it as "First Meal". A whole world opens up when you don't limit the foods to a certain time of day. This morning I had a phenomenal caprese egg bake!

                Your body isn't going to recognize bacon and eggs at 8a and say to itself "Oh, bacon and eggs? It must be breakfast!" It's just going to go, "Sweet. Food! Let's par-tay!"

                  This week it will be a mug of bone broth, then later a bowl of diced tomatoes, avocados and beef tongue with mustard.

                  No eggs anymore. I just use random kinds of meat and make various forms of "hash" or salads. Stuff like chicken livers, onions and mushrooms. Shredded pork (from some tails I bought) with peppers and onions. Ground beef with whatever veggies. Beef with tomatoes and vinegar. Salmon and avocado. Stuff like that. Basically, scrambles without the eggs. Salads without the lettuce.

                    I've been having avocado deviled eggs (two eggs to 1/2 of an avocado, mash up the yolks with the avocado and a bit of lemon juice, stuff back into egg whites), and a banana, for breakfast. It's very filling.

                      I used to be a hard boiled eggs every morning person before I had to cut them out for a month. I really liked grilled chicken thighs as a substitute. I would grill a club pack of boneless, skinless chicken thighs on Sundays, and then eat one or two with fruit for breakfast every morning. Not as exciting as other suggestions, but quick, easy, and comparable to eggs macronutrient-wise.

                        One of my favorite breakfasts is bacon wrapped bleu cheese stuffed dates and deviled eggs. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

                            Just starting this way of eating...my breakfast is a hb egg, olives, carrot chips, & sometimes guacamole ( half an avocado, lime, sea salt, spoonful of salsa)- I never imagined I could not crave my morning bagel w/ peanut butter, but I don't miss it. I occasionally follow w/ some coffee & coconut cream....

                              Unless it is late after sleeping in on a weekend, I'm not a big breakfast person. My stomach is just not really ready for a full meal at 7:30am. Weekends end up being leftovers of dinner foods, or just a big pile of freshly cooked bacon (Mmmm) and leftover cooked veggies.

                              On weekdays it is delicious pork breakfast sausage links, piping hot, every single day, or nothing. I won't win any Slow Food awards, as I microwave them (they are pre-cooked) and eat them standing over the sink in about 2 minutes before running out the door. Eggs are out for me due to food sensitivities. Previously it was two hard-boiled eggs with salt alternated with the pork sausage.
