    Meat and veggies breakfast?

    Hi fellow groks,

    in efforts to save money and time, I made a huge batch of chicken stew loaded with veggies, chicken, coconut milk and nuts. Delicious!
    However, I made so much that I've been eating it for breakfast, just so it doesn't go to waste.

    I always thought eating such a big meal in the would result in lethargy and drowsiness, but I'm doing good.

    Is this totally ok? Do others do this?

    I always eat 'real food' for breakfast. It's my largest meal of the day, and I feel great eating this way.

    Why wouldn't it be? Breakfast isn't a magical meal that requires bacon and eggs. I eat the same foods pretty much regardless of the time of day most of the time.

    Freeze some, I will! Thanks for the advice. I'm new to the whole freezing my food thing.

    Regarding the meat for breakfast topic - some people suggest that in order to manage your energy levels, you should go for easily digestable foods in the morning, therefore abstain from fiber/fat and go the heavy meals later in the day. Meats are more taxing on the digestion system - logically resulting in lower energy levels.

    In terms of energy - I felt good after eating stew for breakfast.
    But for future reference, I think I'll stick the my good ol' smoothy - and go for the heavier meals later in the day.

    Cheers,
    Darri

    dinner leftovers are my typical breakfast food. I've always like a more savory breakfast. If we don't have leftovers I settle for more traditional b'fast foods like eggs but I'm always more satisfied with meat and veggies, esp beef, for breakfast.

    Whether the "taxing" issue is true or not, I only get lethargic from blood glucose crashes, which follow from eating carbs/starches/sugar. Managing my energy levels means controlling carbohydrate intake for the purpose of keeping my blood sugar stable. I can stuff myself on meat, fats, and veggies and not have an issue, but I will crash an hour later if I eat an apple with no protein or fat alongside.

    Yuh, I'll echo other's sentiments. At this point, the main distinction between breakfast and dinner (I skip lunch) is that I fry up 3-4 eggs with my meat and veggies in the morning and fry up sweet potatoes or plantains with my meat and veggies for dinner. The meat and veggies are almost always left overs from dinners and/or cooking marathons on the weekend.

    When I have the time and inclination, I'll try to be a bit more creative on the weekends, but for the most part my breakfast and dinners look almost identical.
