Pretty new to Crossfit and struggling with breakfast

So I am pretty new to Crossfit (approx. 4 months) and also adopted, as far as possible a Paleo guidelines. I however, for the love of god, cannot think of anything creative for breakfast. Usually do not do morning WOD but since I bought my equipment I tend to do a simple two movement based WODs in the morning quickly. I am stuck on different variants of egg/bacon based breakfast and oats (when time does not permit anything else - which is almost most of the time).

Would love to hear on some ideas from the community.

Either find ways to fancy-up your eggs (i.e. omelets with mushrooms, peppers, salsa, guacamole, cheese, etc.) or just eat last night's leftovers for breakfast. There's no reason breakfast has to be "breakfast foods."

I have tried all the various safe additions Your second suggestion is actually very interesting as I can remember previous nights salad with tuna the next morning and felt great. At this point I would most properly eat a stew for breakfast as well to get some variety :/

Re: Pretty new to Crossfit and struggling with breakfast

If I don't do bacon and eggs it is typically cereal and a protein shake. Contrary to popular belief around these parts, cereal isn't evil as long as you aren't eating the sugary kind.

Re: Pretty new to Crossfit and struggling with breakfast

Never heard of cereal being Paleo friendly. It is either full of sugar,imitation sugar,grains,wheat, and or flour unless you found an anomaly.

Try this web sight below and i think it will take you awhile to run out of ideas

Well if you want to stay paleo you can make your own with various nuts. Unless you have a specific need (ie gluten issues/other health conditions) then you can have a perfectly healthy breakfast with some grains in the morning.

Are all of your 3,000+ posts as worthless as this one?

Re: Pretty new to Crossfit and struggling with breakfast

Here is a cereal I like

1 TBSP flax milled flax seeds
1 TBSP of hemp protein powder
1/4 cup'ish chopped nuts
1 TBSP chopped ginger
Banana cut up
1 date cut up
Cacao nibs (optional)
Almond milk

Mix it all up, great as a post WOD

Actually, that was kind of neat. Luke- your post, not so much.

From the Site Rules:
Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. We have zero tolerance for taking an argument about any topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts can also constitute harassment. This applies to all content submitted by users including posts, PMs, avatars and signatures.

We require a high level of respect to be shown at all times to other users of the board. Insults (either direct or indirect), bickering, and flaming of any kind will lead to suspensions and/or banishment from the board. Tolerance level for this behavior is extremely low.
