Breakfast

Please help me. I hate eggs. I have tried to eat them and gag to the point of throwing up everytime i do. I have tried them over easy, scrambled, fried, in an omlet, in a taco, with steak, covered in hot sauce, with salt and pepper, boiled, etc.

Are shakes that hit a proper calorie / protein / etc. level ok for breakfast? protein powder, fruit, little milk... maybe a side of bacon. thanks for the help.

Re: Breakfast

Why not eat "real" food for breakfast instead of shakes: chicken, steak, fish, pork chops or just about anything else. Don't have to limit yourself to just "breakfast" foods for breakfast.

Re: Breakfast

I'm a fan of cold bloody steak and a mixture of walnuts and berries....or an apple. But I'm a little weird.

Re: Breakfast

i have thought about eating other than breakfast foods for breakfast, just have not done it. i'll prob do a mix of shakes, fruit and other lunch / dinner foods for different days.

thanks for the feedback!

Re: Breakfast

I start off my breakfast with a small melon, stimulates elimination of urine and a bowel movement to start the day off nice and fresh.

I typically have a significant amount of calories to start the day off. For instance today I had a big blended smoothie of 7 bananas, 4 oranges, some strawberries, a pinch of flax seeds and a couple almonds.

Feelin' ready to take on the world!

7 bananas/4oranges in 1 smoothie? and you drank it all? holy hell! 250g of carbs and nearly 1000 cals. Are you doing significant endurance work? It just seems atypical.

What goal are you targeting with that breakfast, Mario?

Re: Breakfast

To the OP - shakes are fine if you cannot stomach the eggs. I am pretty busy in the AM getting ready for work and with kids - sometimes I make time to cook some eggs and bacon - sometimes I whip up a nice shake.

Do you like Ham? That with some good clean carbs make for a good breakfast.
