    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

    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.

    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.
