A normal breakfast for me is:
protein: salmon slice, turkey slice, and egg
fruit and fat: one cup of fruit and covered in coconut milk
I have high fasting glucose, and I want to test taking fruit out of diet to see what effect that has on that. What does the Paleo diet let me replace that with that I can make easily? I would normally try something like oatmeal but that is a non-Paleo item. I definitely want a low glycemic solution.
In addition, fruits have a lot of antioxidants. What can I take that is a non fructose item that has similar levels of the same types of antioxidants?
I'm looking for a miracle here: something that takes minimum preparation, gives me low-glycemic glucose instead of fructose, and has lots of antioxidants to boot. Probably just wishful thinking, but no harm to ask?
If you cook a big sweet potato, you could eat on it for a few days.
Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:
34yrs old, 5'5"
CW: 163lbs (07/2014)
GW: 135lbs or less
Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)
Sweet potato is a good one and that could cover a few breakfasts. Other ideas?
I don't even eat breakfast half the time. If i do, I open the fridge and shove some cheese, meats, left over whatever in my mouth and out the door I go. Haha.
On that note, I want a banana now
What about a pumpkin pie smoothie- pumpkin, vanilla whey powder, pumpkin pie spice, coconut milk.
You can get whey protein that is pretty much only protein.
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
Omelette with whatever you fancy in it. There's no need for a carb alternative at that time of the day imho. I have a six egg omelette with red pepper and cheese and I can easily last until dinner at 6pm if I have to.
