    I often find breakfast unnecessary, and I prefer those 10-30 minutes it would take to make breakfast, to be able to relax.

    May not be primal???!?

    Plain baked white baked potato.
    Carnation Instant breakfast.
    Steel cut oats in the crock pot.
    Frozen waffles with brown sugar.
    Rolled up whole wheat pancakes.

    WTF are you doing posting this. Poison -- portable or not -- is NEVER a smart concept.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Yes, I was wincing at the very non-primalness of five of the choices, too. But here are the primal substitutes for those technique concepts:

    A cold sweet potato or avocado. A food in its own peel that you can take with you after just slicing open.

    Bullet-proof coffee or tea. Adding something to a drink.

    Any kind of stew. Cooking something in the crockpot, just waiting to be scooped up in the morning.

    Frozen primal pancakes or waffles or egg-cups. Many things can be made ahead and given a quick zap, or a leisurely ten minutes in the oven while you are dressing.

    Rolled up egg crepes, willed with all sorts of stuff. Making some kind of hand-food.

    I said the foods weren't primal, but the concepts were good (ie: cook breakfast while you're sleeping, make hard boiled eggs in advanced, do a baked potato-- could make it a sweet potato, have bulletproof joe or a protein shake, make huge breakfast and freeze leftovers, try to think of quick meals like pancakes and scrambled eggs, etc).
    Try not to get your loincloth all twisted.

    In all honesty, most people will not be harmed by a breakfast of steel cut oats or other hot whole cereal or a plain boiled or baked potato?=....

    Can't say I agree with the wheat thing. Those who never consider giving up wheat will never find out if they are intolerant. And most people who are intolerant to wheat will react to regular oats due to cross-contamination, while many are also sensitive to gf oats. Like me.

    I used to make for the household what I called "blue plate specials" before I found I was gluten intolerant. I was speedskating, powerlifting, and doing chronic cardio and consumed tons of calories. And of course I didn't lose any weight. We had eggs, meat, baked goods (toast, muffin, or biscuits), potatoes, fruit, juice, coffee. Or potatoes with crumbled bacon and 3 kinds of cheese melted into goo. Or pancakes or waffles and sausage and bacon. I was like a demon in the kitchen, keep out of my way or get caught in the machinery and DIE!

    After a long period of pain-induced idleness, I am older and no longer need so many calories. So I just IF.

    Well, your breakfasts do not sound like plain hot non-processed cereal or a plain boiled potato.... There are also other choices, like buckwheat, millet, quinoa... sure, if you have sensitivity they are out, but if not...? I don't like IF, I would rather eat when I am hungry, and cereal are very nice sometimes.

    I dunno, I understand the outrage about something highly processed with a load of chemicals, like bread or instant oatmeal, but plain old non-glut cereal? It's pretty neutral.
