    Best breakfasts at work or on the go?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi everyone,

    As a newbie to starting primal, one of the biggest things i'm worried about is what to eat for breakfast, especially as I eat at work usually? Obviously weekends I can make omelettes and stuff but what do the rest of you that eat at work do? there is only a toaster and microwave here.

    Lunch will be a similar thing, i'll have to pre-cook stuff to bring in to re heat at lunch.

    Thanks again

    I posted this last week in answer to another breakfast question, but it still holds - fritatta (or egg muffins!). Make ahead, freeze or keep in fridge at home. Take portions to work and reheat in microwave.

    Sorry - I'm using what you're using, but I'm not sick of it yet! (OK, sometimes I use shredded greens rather than peppers and sometimes a little goat's cheese, rather than bacon etc.)

    I know there are lots of variations if you google.

    well, this probably won't help if you're sick of eggs + veg + pancetta, but...
    quiche cups:
    take a muffin pan, put half slices of prosciutto or (large) salami slices in each cup as a base - feel free to use any kind of cured/smoked/whatever meat that suits your taste - you may want to grease your tin as well.
    (optional depending on if you do dairy) - crumble some cheese at the bottom of the cups - I used a welsh cheddar w/chives.
    beat some eggs with veg of your choice - yesterday, I used kale and leftover canned diced tomatoes - 'cause it's what I had in the fridge... add seasonings if you like (I added cayenne pepper and fresh garlic), then evenly distribute the egg/veg mixture amongst the cups.
    Bake at 350 (or your favorite temp) until the eggs are set to your liking - if you have any cups in the muffin tin that aren't filled with food, put a bit of water in each one - I'm told it encourages even baking.
    You can also do this without beating the eggs (just put veg in each cup, then crack an egg into the cup, makes a nice sunny side up baked egg) - if the size of your cups and your eggs matches up (mine usually don't)

    other grab and go ideas:
    coconut milk +fruit (frozen berries, half a banana, etc.) +ice in the blender + to go cup.
    bulletproof coffee
    hardboiled eggs + pre-cooked bacon or sausage + fruit (maybe yogurt too?)
    turkey drumstick? (I'm sure I have more, but they're escaping me right now)

    I cycle in to work so have breakfast after showering. Try Coconut muesli. If you want a warm breakfast on cold days add some quinoa soaked in water overnight.Only takes a couple of mins in the Micro wave.
