paleo breakfast

ok so as most paleo followers know breakfast is one of the more difficult meals to switch over. i was hoping to hear from some people for ideas on what they eat in the morning. i have a workout first thing so i need to find a suitable snack then a breakfast after my WOD while at work. as of right now i usually start with a handful of almonds and dried fruit. then a tuna packet or leftovers from the night before for post WOD.

what do you guys eat?

Re: paleo breakfast

How about hardboiled eggs and fruit. Why is this one of the hardest to change? To me this was the breakfast that was most similar to what I normally do.

If you don't like eggs, why not leftover meat from the morning? Or a high quality breakfast sausage from grass fed animals.

Re: paleo breakfast

i meant its difficult in the sense that most americans eat a high carb breakfast focused around cereal or other grains. i am a fan of eggs just that they dont settle very well pre-WOD for me.

thanks for the tips guys

Consider skipping the pre-WOD food. I just finished the Filthy Fifty after a 16 hour fast without any perceived bonking (sucking, yes, bonking, no).

I can't eat within 4 hours before a workout. If I do, I develop a strange desire to meet Pukie.

The energy made available to you from a meal doesn't hit until a few hours later. I'm not saying I work out on a completely empty stomach. I still have food in my system, since it takes anywhere from 4 to 12 hours to digest a meal depending on what and how much you ate.

Re: paleo breakfast

I usually only eat an early morning "breakfast" on weekends. IF has made things so much easier during the work week than I have no desire to spend 30 minutes in the morning making food.

As far as carbs go, if one desires more carbs in a paleo breakfast (or any meal) then nothing beats a big steak and sweet potato.

Re: paleo breakfast

Okay my favorite paleo breakfast PWO is a Bannana and some berries or other seasonal fruit if berries are no good Eggs, Bacon, sauted garlic and Kale, and fried onions and parsnips, a Nice table spoon of cod liver oil and some vitamin D and I am set.

Another lower carb higher Protein breakfast is Eggs and a Localy raised pork steak (hard to find this cut outside St. Louis) or other fatty cut of pork, 1/2 aple diced and fried in coconut oil and sprinkled with cinnamon then chard placed on top and ACV drissled on top to wilt the chard. Place the eggs sunny cide up on top of the chard and the Pork beside it.

Both will work post wok out depending on your goals and recovery needs. If you are afraid of too many fat blocks because you are on the low cal path right now reduce the fat you add for cooking and choose a leaner cut of meat and don't fry/scramble the eggs in bacon grease. Still I'd go for the fat and eat a salad later.
