    SOS - Breakfast in Italy! Holy grains batman!

    Primal Fuel
    I am working in Italy for the next 2 weeks. Lunch and dinner have been fine, I can score mostly meat and veggies fairly easily. But breakfast is always sugar and or breads. No protoen to be found!

    I am going to go to their local supermarket, what can I get to eat on my own? I have a small fridge, but that is it. I am hoping the hotel could boil me some eggs, if I bought them. What else can you guys think of? Jerky? I have whey protein powder, but I don't want to live off of that stuff.

    Loving the coffee choices here! Here is a picture of the scenery, I could get used to this place! ImageUploadedByMarks Daily Apple Forum1371027043.454664.jpg

    Thanks guys & gals!

    Skip breakfast altogether, just have tea or coffee

    Prosciutto, braesola or some other kind of cured meat you can eat without cooking. Maybe some cheese, nuts or olives?

    Thanks, I just popped into the grocery store, I stocked up on some proscuttio, canned olives and some artichoke hearts swimming in some sort of pickling juice. They do have eggs, so I'm going to ask the hotel hostess if they could hard boil some for later in the week. I did get some bananas and oranges too.

    I think I'll survive. If there is any doubt, I'll just drink a bottle of red wine. I may not be in ketosis anymore, but my Italian will get 100% better!

    True, I have noticed the common evoo here tastes great! And it's always in a dark green bottle.

    Still might be cut, though; Italy is infamous for that.
