    Starting 100% today...question about eggs

    So, I'm starting 100% today on the plan! My problem is going to be breakfast. I am lactose intolerant and I think I might be allergic to eggs. After I eat eggs I usually get a sick stomach/head not quite a headache, but more of a flu feeling. Any suggestions?

    ~Leftovers from dinner the night before
    ~Turkey and avocado roll ups

    I love, love, love bone broth for breakfast. Today, I had avocado with sauteed spinach. Really, you can have anything. Don't limit yourself to CW of "breakfast food". Sometimes, too, I find a few teaspoons of coconut oil will keep me till lunch. Good luck!

    This isn't what I wanted to be when I grew up; a potty trainer.
    I wanted to be a pirate. Well. You know how that goes.

    My pet theory on lactose intolerance is that it is usually something else, like an inflamed gut due to the standard gluten filled diet.

    When your gut is inflamed, it doesn't work right. Problems with digesting milk/dairy products are one of the first things you notice, but that doesn't mean it's because of milk products.

    Try grain free Primal for a week or too and try eggs again. You might be fine.

    I don't agree with whey protein unless someone is very active and isn't avoiding carbs as much.

    You don't need eggs for breakfast - it's time to think outside the box.

    Steak (either fresh grilled or leftovers) with fresh tomatoes chopped up with half an avocado on lettuce and tossed with lemon - maybe some grilled peppers too?

    Fresh cantaloupe, blackberries and a couple slices of proscuitto

    Steamed Salmon, asparagus and fresh strawberries

    Leftovers - plan to make an extra dish to reheat or eat cold. You'll be surprised with want sounds good once you start thinking about it.

    You gotta eat through it, eventually you will tolerate eggs just fine, your mind has to adapt.

    Coffee and good old whole cream
    Last month when I started this I was amazed how satisfied I would be with real cream in my coffee. Makes me happy just thinking about it.
