    We keep gluten-free Rice Krispies in our house for my husband and I'll have a bowl about once a month. It's good every once in a while, but I wouldn't make a habit of it.

    I think not...you need to make a conscious decision not to buy it and not to eat it if someone else buys it. What a horrible way to start the day!
    Fry up some eggs and keep them in the fridge. Great cold, ready to grab and go.
    Hahahahahaha. Seriously almost spit my tea all over the keyboard.

    Whisk 12 eggs with sliced green onions, crumbled bacon and sliced mushrooms or whatever you'd like mixed in with eggs (maybe just plain eggs).

    Pour into 12 muffin tins.

    Top with cheddar cheese.

    Bake.

    They will puff up into egg muffins. Grab and go on days you don't have time.

    My favorite breakfast is black coffee with nothing, but I used to do this on days where I would wake up hungry. Eventually, you'll probably get to a point where you're just not hungry anymore upon waking. I don't see eating as soon as you wake up as natural. We never really had food storage, so by the time you went hunting or gathering it was probably late in the day. Don't be surprised if your AM hunger fades the longer you do this.

    Because you were so occupied with... what? Brushing your teeth and commuting to the place of hunting & gathering 10 miles off your sleeping cave in the Rock-City or watching the sun till it crested the mid-point in the sky to finish your fast?

    Leftovers are awesome.

    Leftover rice reheated with a butter, cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar (yes I said sugar, ) if you must eat grains for breakfast.

    A banana and a handful of nuts.

    Hard boiled eggs.

    A can of tuna.

    Salad.

    I'm surprised you are still living. BFD. You ain't some cereal. "Plan better" ? Come on... life goes on. These forums are starting to get seriously annoying. If you want to eat some cereal everyone now and then, go for it.

Sure, it's not primal, but it's a lot less harmful than a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant from Dunkin's. I count it as my 80%.

    What do you suggest as the most primal-like as far as breakfast cereals go? I'm leaning towards Special K, but I'd like to hear some other suggestions.
    I'm pretty sure you should count it in your 20%.

    Assuming that your whole thing is not having enough time to prepare something, here's some options:
    1. Ricies topped with fruit/cream/yoghurt/milk
    2. Fruit/nuts/cheese/jerky/pre-boiled eggs

    I don't understand how you can have time to eat a whole bowl of cereal but don't have time to microwave an egg or two though. It seriously takes 2 minutes to scramble an egg.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I don't do breakfast anymore, but if I did, something like cereal would not satisfy me long at all. DH is only primal at suppertime, when I fix supper and if he eats breakfast, he likes Steel Cut Oats that were cooked up ahead of time.

    The key with that and like others have mentioned with primal stuff, prep ahead of time. Gather & cook on Sunday evenings so you are ready to go come Monday morning.

    If cereal is a weakness or easy way out, don't keep it in the house. jmo

    i'd think it would make a whole lot more sense to be up at 'em, depending on how far anybody had to go for food. you have to go, gather or kill, return and prepare. agreed they weren't having a grand-slam breakfast upon waking, but i doubt there was much dawdling beforehand. why would they want to be wandering around during the heat of day, working at all, if necessary?

    i also think it's quite naive to think nobody had dried, stored foods. scientists have found stores of nuts, seeds and roots from 50,000+ years ago.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
