    I am not into eggs/meat lately for bfast. Any other ideas? Is it not a good idea to eat fruit on its own (insulin response?)

    i'm a fan of skipping breakfast.

    but, if you want fruit, eat fruit. if you want to add some fat to it, try an apple with almond butter, or berries and cream. anything can work as a breakfast; if i ate breakfast and got tired of eggs, i'd be downing fish or some kind of seafood every day.

    Full fat greek yogurt (if you tolerate dairy) with 'Nola is delicious.

    Coconut milk custards are yummy and egg-hiding and fill you up for a while.

    Birkenstocks & hairy arm pits.
    Buttercoffee (aka Bulletproof coffee, but I use much less butter than recommended) - it's like a steamy hot coffee milkshake, sorta.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I don't have breakfast often, and when I do it happens to be more of a brunch.

    However, I alternate:

    - fried eggs + bacon or...
    - smoked wild salmon with avocado
    - smoked wild salmon with homemade cream cheese

    Yep, omega-3 are important

    It may seem a bit strange to start the day with fish after being used so long to sugary chocolate chips and milk, and I agree. But once you get used to it's just a breakfast like another.

    When I do not have proper breakfast (most of the time) I just take a cup of italian black coffee. I have been burning fats all the night and probably I am in full ketosis, too, so why stopping right now?

    lately i've been making "bulletproof coffee with a twist":

    stovetop espresso (probs 2 cups and i usually do half caf)
    1 big tablespoon coconut oil
    1-2 tbsp of the "meloroaster mix" (1 can of coconut cream, add heavy cream (1/2 cup??), blend, add any/all cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla to taste - store in big mason jar in fridge and try really hard NOT to down several spoonfuls every time you open fridge)
    1tsp butter (optional - often don't bother)
    1 egg yolk

    blend everything but the hot coffee first...if it isn't blending add a little bit of the coffee (you don't want to 'cook' the yolk!). then slowly blend in coffee.

    this is AMAZEBALLS and often enough for me in the morning. if not i make the meloroaster shake (ok now i'm refer to myself...ugh)

    - 1cup (i never measure but probs right) mixed frozen berries
    - 2-3 big arse kale leaves
    - scoop of homemade full fat yoghurt (if available)
    - bit o h2o
    - unsweetened whey
    - dollop of coconut oil

    Something with canned pumpkin perhaps?
    My non-meat breakfast is usually yogurt with blueberries and puréed almonds...mmmm!
    Sometimes I add canned pumpkin to it as well.
    But maybe you could come up with a pumpkin based breakfast if you are not tolerant of/don't want the dairy.
    If I am particularly full from the day before, I might eat a handful of almonds and an apple. Mostly because I know I need to have carbs throughout the day. I also eat broccoli with my eggs/meat, but I haven't tried it (broccoli) alone for breakfast yet.

    Great thread!
