    Rice cakes are one of the worst things you can eat. They are akin to table sugar on the glycemic scale.

    Why do you need a rice cake to go with cheese? A few slices of cheese with coffee sounds plenty nice.

    Not if you eat them with cheese.

    Not that I'm advocating them, but the glycemic index is very misleading, since food is not eaten in a bubble. It's eaten with other foods, and fat slows down absorption.

    I keep burger sliders or chicken legs in the freezer. Nuke while the coffee is brewing. Presto chango breakfast. Boiled eggs, cheese and fruit, a handful of nuts, fresh veggies, all are grab and go options.

    If you are really cut for time, keep bags of the Steve's Original jerky around. Ultimate grab and go paleo.

    Stop buying the damn cereal. If you don't have it, you can't eat it. If you're doing Primal properly, you shouldn't even want cereal. If you put bread, pasta or cereal in front of me it just looks gross and tastes like cardboard - and as an Italian from South Jersey, I lived on this stuff every day of my life as staples.
    Mixed some broken down/shredded walnuts, pecans, or almonds in a bowl with some banana. Throw in some dark chocolate chips, and put in a bowl of milk. That has worked for me--is this more acceptable than cereal?

    Yea if you don't mind a 700 calorie bowl of cereal. Why do you have to eat cereal? Why can't you eat a steak for breakfast? Or a salad? Or eggs? Or salmon? Or some fruit? Why do you even have to eat breakfast at all? I'm eating my first meal right now and it's 1pm. Black coffee with no sweetener or cream is a phenomenal appetite suppressant.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    and they taste like packing peanuts. actually, those may taste better.
    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.

    Thought my alternative was cereal free? I get confused here....yousaying one shouldnt do nuts or fruit? I thoght the nuts, banana, would approximate the texture of cereal.

    How is it different than eating rice along a meal?

    That's why I recommended eating them with something like cheese.

    Again, not plain rice cakes (they are tasteless almost) but if the OP really wants something easy, and is missing that crunchy feeling he used to get from regular cereals, he could once in a while use organic rice cakes with butter or cheese. It ain't ideal - i know that, but better than frosties!

    No such thing as a primal cereal. I was really into the Olympics and as OH was away for eight days I grabbed some of his Sainsbury's organic cornflakes one morning as I had run out of eggs. Tasted OK but wow so bloated next morning. Made sure I bought eggs !
