    Suggestions for Breakfast. Is 6 eggs per week too much?

    I'm looking for some ideas for breakfast. I'm starting week 2 and getting tired of 1 hardboiled egg, and a handful of raspberries or blueberries. Any suggestions?

    I usually eat 6 eggs in a sitting :/ I would imagine that I wouldn't be too far off from the norm around here. What do your other meals look like?

    Wow. Never imagined eating 6 eggs in a sitting. My daily routine looks like this:

    Breakfast:
    5AM: 1 hard boiled egg, handfull of raspberries and blueberries with coconut milk.
    6AM: 12 km run to work

    Lunch: Small mixed salad with 1 chicken breast

    Dinner: Meat or fish with plate of mixed vegetables.

    I don't snack and can easily miss a meal (lunch), if I'm busy at work. I may have a few nuts or olives as a snack.

    Try sauteeing ground turkey/beef/lamb patties in a sausage seasoning (I use a blend I mix myself from a recipe in Well Fed by Melissa Joulwan) and have that for breakfast as 'sausage' without the nasty ingredients/fillers in storebought.

    You can do nuts for breakfast if you make fake granola, but that can wind up being too many nuts FYI.

    Coconut flour blueberry muffins (those have 1/2 egg per muffin) - I use the recipe at elanaspantry.com but half the sweetener to just 2.5 Tbsp of raw honey for the entire dozen muffins

    Sweet potato hash is really good - shred up a sweet potato, saute with your favorite fat (I like both coconut oil and butter) and serve. Throw some green vegetables in it too.

    Sauteed spinach with lemon is delicious for breakfast - I pair it with scrambled eggs.

    Leftovers are always good.

    Something with chicken or a steak for breakfast also sounds appetizing.

    Some people like bacon for breakfast but we use it more as a condiment around here and not as a straight protein source.

    I completely endorse this too. Ground meat(sometimes left over from last night's dinner) with a mix of seasonings is delicious. Google "homemade sausage" or search some of the paleo/primal recipe sites makes for a great breakfast sausage, without the extra nonsense you tend to get from most of the stuff you find in the store.

    Throw in some veggies of your choice to go with it, and you're all set with a delicious, healthy breakfast.

    Never really thought about meat for breakfast. I usually have an egg. Given that I'm ramping up on the physical fitness, it sounds like I'll need to ramp up on the food. I usually don't eat pig (sausage/bacon).....but could tolerate fish in the morning. I just bought a ton of easy to prepare fish (not farmed). Thanks for the tips. Cheers/louisa

    I start my day with "bulletproof" coffee (coffee, butter, coconut oil) now - sends my energy levels sky high and comfortably sees me through till lunch, when I'm more inclined to want actual food.

    I also make a twelve egg scramble that sees me through the weekdays, so I'd definitely say your six is fine!

    Not sure where you got the hard boiled egg and berries from, but pretty certain I'd get bored of that quickly, too. There are tons of recipes on the forums, so you might benefit from searching for "breakfast". An awful lot depends on what you personally find good to eat! (Sorry, that sounds horribly vague, but where I love something like steak and eggs for breakfast if I'm eating, you might think that sounds awful!)

    Thanks for the reply. I've been an ultra athlete for years and years, and I rarely experience boredom in repetitive food experiences. I've eaten tuna and eggs for decades as they are pure food sources and never tire of the 'same old, same old'. I'm fortunate in that I have a great capacity to withstand boredom and repetitiveness....guess that's what makes me a good ultra athlete. Thanks for your time and thoughts/ Louisa

    I often eat 4-6 eggs per day in various forms! You don't have to be afraid of eggs. However, I'd switch up that breakfast--hardboiled egg and berries would bore me after a while too.
