This question has probably been asked many times before, but I need some help. I am trying to go primal but my biggest problem is breakfast. I have made some nice omelettes and occasionally cooked up bacon and eggs, even cooked a small steak, but in the morning I don't often feel like doing much preparing and cooking food. That is when the idea of simply "pour the cereal out of the box and add milk" seems to really appeal!
Can others tell me what they do for breakfast? Easy suggestions gratefully received.
The simplest idea: none. Intermittent fasting.
I make a frittata or baked egg/veggie/meat casserole in advance for the week and then just heat it up for brekkie - it works well and is almost as fast as the bowl of cereal.
Or make a big pot of ground-turkey-sweet-potato hash (or chili, or a hearty soup, or...) and have a bowl for breakfast.

Intermittent fasting is my preferred breakfast option.
I realize you might not be there just yet, but hey, what's quicker and more convenient than not having to make a damn thing?
Over time, sticking to the paleo/primal diet you might just get to this point as well. A lot of us have.
A can of sardines. Open; eat. Even coffee requires more work than that.
Also leftovers from the night before. I don't eat breakfast probably nine days out of ten, but when I do, it's often leftovers.
If there aren't enough leftovers to satisfy you, cook them up and throw a couple of eggs on them.
If you don't want to cook in the morning, and you have a microwave, make a couple of days worth of fried rice (with meat, eggs, veggies). Put appropriate portion in the microwave and voila! breakfast.
Hard boiled eggs. Jerky. And when all else fails, bullet proof coffee. A tablespoon or four of butter in your coffee whipped up in the blender will tide you over 'til lunch or supper.
