    Breakfast for the Low-Lectin Primal type?

    Hiya,
    Been Primal for about four months now. Originally started the process as a potential relief for Psoriatic Arthritis, but despite making me look hawt it has had no effect on my inflammation whatsoever. That said, I want to take the next step by minimizing my lectin intake as I hear this may also help. That shouldn't be too much of an issue (though I will miss you Mr. Tomato) with the exception of breakfast. Can't eat cereal. Can't bagel. Can't eat eggs. Can't eat yogurt/dairy. That pretty much leaves fruit, which I am trying to minimize to continue my awesome fat reduction.

    I'm also IFing when I can which helps remove breakfast as a meal in general, but sometimes I want to eat in the morning, ya dig?

    Anyone out there on a low lectin diet that can offer up some breakfast food ideas?

    Hmmm ... it does leave meat, fish, and vegetables.

    Any ideas from the recent post the hairy-faced one (Stabby, the primal raccoon) posted on the board yesterday? Great article on the islanders of Vanuatu. Here's a sample of what they eat:

    Breakfast - Tea & starchy vegetables (slow cooked in coconut milk)

    Lunch (if eaten) - Meat/Chicken/Fish with starchy vegetables. If a main lunch meal isn't eaten, then fruit and/or coconut is eaten throughout the day. Another alternative (described as the island equivalent of 2-minute noodles), is quick-cook cabbage with coconut milk.

    Dinner - Meat/Chicken/Fish with green and/or starchy vegetables
    That Paleo Guy: The Diet and Lifestyle of the People of Vanuatu: Paleo in Paradise

    The dinner menu would be a good breakfast option: Meat/Chicken/Fish with green and/or starchy vegetables

    Just maybe scale it down a bit in quantity if you don't want that much early in the day. Say a few ounces of smoked fish—cold hot-smoked trout, for example, is great. With that you could have perhaps some steamed asparagus (with a knob of butter on that, so you get enough fat) and perhaps some sweet potato on the side. Or you could do, say, meat and greens and a piece of fruit.

    If you can make, or buy, beet kvass, a small glass of that is quite nice in the morning, goes well with a lot of breakfast dishes, and has good bacteria.

    You could also have a few nuts, or some nut milk, too. That's another option. But pre-soak the nuts in salted water for at least 7 hours first, as they contain lectins.

    Smoked salmon...you're onto something there. Better with tomato, capers, and cream cheese, but I'm sure I can come up with some concoction. good idea!
