    Hard-boil and peel some eggs. Pre-cook some bacon and keep it in the freezer. Pop bacon into microwave for 30 seconds. It's an even quicker breakfast than your two-minute smoothie.

    I am with magnolia. Frozen berries will thicken it as good as a banana, if you chose to make a high fat smoothie.

    If you want a banana, I would go banana and egg whites, in other words, LF/High carb.

    If you want an extreme protein smoothie, nix fruit and go for tuna instead of fruit.
    I might need to build up to blitzing tuna in! Can you taste it?

    Here is part 1 of pklopp's intermittent fasting primer: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread27894.html

    There's also parts 2 and 3. You can find them by using the search bar at the top of the page.

    You probably shouldn't try IF yet since you just started. Starting too many things at once sets you up for failure.

    Yep, but it is milder, and the texture is far more appealing than when choking it dry. I add celery and spinach and onions or tomatoes...

    I also make green smoothies with avocado if you prefer that (greens, avocado, egg whites)

    or a gazpacho like smoothie, cucumbers, celery, tomato paste (and egg whites).

    TBH, my fastest breakfast is a couple of soft-boiled eggs with a cucumber or radishes or a tomato.

    Heh, I think I'll have to try the tuna smoothie. It actually sounds strangely appealing. Maybe I'll add tomatoes, celery, and basil to it. And some vodka too. A bloody mary tuna smoothie--bloody tary? Nice weekend brunch. My bf will think that I've lost my mind yet again.

    With basil, I love a simple diced tomatoes from the can, basil and ice, cayenne or chipotle chili smoothie (?), and pour over poached shrimp.... Mmgh...

    Be gentle with yourself at first and focus on nourishment but in the long run we're not built to self-destruct without breakfast.

    That sounds good too! I've never cooked shrimp before though, and my bf is allergic to it. Maybe I can just pour it over some poached salmon. Mmmmm....screw the weekend. I think I'm going to make the tuna smoothie tonight.

    Thanks. I might risk it ;-) Avocado I'm good with, and that disappears quite well (I just don't want to think about it mixed up with my fruit!).
