    Alternatives to Fruit for Breakfast

    Shop Now
    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?

    Yes, but I'm not really wanting to cook, and raw veggies are not exactly a joy to eat. I do have a large salad before lunch made of spinach, salsa, and salmon eggs. And I have two veggie servings with lunch and dinner each.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
