    Anyone have some good soothie ideas?

    Hi guys, been eating Primal for one week now, and although I really do like my (whole!) eggs in the morning, I need some variety. I ordered the cookbook, but it's not here yet.

    I'm a big fan of smoothies in the morning, but I used to make them with whey powder, OJ and blueberries, which would be far too many carbs. Does anyone have any ideas I could use? I know yogurt helps some. Thanks!

    i alternate these during the work week because i'm usually rushed:

    1 tbsp chia seeds soaked overnight in 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
    -optional flavors (add vanilla extract, cinnamon or cocoa powder)
    throw in some fruit if you want

    OR

    1 scoop unflavored jarrow hemp protein + 1 c unsweetened almond milk
    (my fave is vanilla extract, 1/2tsp maca powder & loads of cinnamon)
    -i add a couple spoons of canned pumpkin for a "fall flavor"

    OR

    1/2 avocado + fresh mint leaves + 1c unsweetened almond milk=SHAMROCK SHAKE!! i add a little stevia to sweeten the deal, this is prob my fave shake

    1 cup coconut milk, 1 T nut butter, 1 frozen banana. If you're feeling feisty, a bit of dark chocolate or a scoop of cocoa powder. Take you right through lunchtime.

    Coconut milk
    Plain full fat greek yogurt
    A handful of whatever leafy green stuff I have around
    A couple chunks of frozen pineapple
    About 1/4 of an avocado

    1/2 banana
    -OR-
    1 tbsp. raw honey (not exactly primal, but it helps my allergies so I still eat it
