Every morning I come downstairs and look through the cabinets hoping that I see something worth eating. There is always the temptation to eat bread, jelly, or something with no nutrious value. What do you guys eat for breakfast that is full of protein and sets you off for the rest of the day? Lately, I've been eating eggs(eggbeaters) and almonds.

Others will have thier own ideas but here's what I generally do. For time's sake I do some cooking ahead. When going to the market I'll buy several lbs of beef, pork, etc. or whatever strikes me as edible. Bring it home and cook enough for 2 or 3 days of morning and lunch meals, the ones that are difficult to do while not at home of course. That along with whatever sides I snag from the cupboards or fridge takes good care of me. Sorry, but I'd stay away from those beaters. Maybe its just me but those things worry me.

Egg White Omelettes with some veggies and olive oil. Some slow cooked oatmeal.

If no time for the omelettes then hard boil some eggs.

I usually either eat scrambled eggs with veggies and sometimes bacon or turkey bacon, or I'll have a smoothie with raw milk, berries, raw eggs (grassfed), and sometimes a little coconut milk.

Slow-cooked oatmeal w/ 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein stirred in, topped with toasted pecans or almonds. Heaven. Perfect amounts of protein/carb/fat too.

A turkey sausage/egg white scramble (protein) that includes chopped sauteed veggies (carbs), topped with a bit of soft cheese (fat), and 1/2 an apple (carb).

My favorite for breakfast is an egg white pancake.

6 egg whites
4 tbsp (steel cut)oats
8 drops stevia
few shakes cinnamon
1/2 cup blueberries (I also sustitute other berries or 1/3 of a banana)
2 tsp slivered almonds

Heat pan over low heat. Add in ~ 1 tsp olive oil. (Pan needs to be HOT before adding batter)
Beat egg whites until frothy. Add in oats, stevia and cinnamon. Beat all ingredients. Pour all the batter into pan and cover with a lid until the top lightly sets from the steam. Flip the giant cake over and let the other side cook without the lid. I make one giant pancake from this in a 9" pan. After it is done I top with blueberries and almonds.

This morning I mixed in a 1/4 cup pumpkin (instead of bluberry topping). I then topped it with a bit of smart balance and 1oz of Walden Farms pancake syrup (made with splenda). It tasted really good.

Om Sundays, I'll make three or four pancakes and refrigerate them, then just nuke them in the morning...saves me time before work.

Breakfast is a struggle. We eat so many eggs it seems crazy. I did have some pan fried flounder the other day, that was a good break. We are not strict zone so we sneak in pancakes or waffles sometimes. But its not your ordinary recipe:

For one serving it looks something like this:

1-2 O3 Eggs
2 or more Whites from a cheap egg
1/4 - 1/3 cup flour
1/4+ tsp baking powder
Dannon lowfat yogurt (seems to have the best ratios)
liquid from milk, juice or water to pouring
1/2+ TBS of Pure Olive oil
Some cinnamon and or vanilla if your into that

No butter, no sugar, pan sprayed with olive oil.

There is a wide window that will make a edible pancake that is even closer to a zone ratio, you do have to allow a little in the flour/milk department.
