Anything. There's no such thing as "breakfast" food to me anymore.
Sardines - Cheap, sustainable, low carb and high in Omega-3.
I have been loading up the crockpot with chicken or beef stew at night and LOVING it for breakfast.
Not sure if you're working out at all but with your mentioning wanting to limit fruit I will keep my ideas lower carb. If you are working out definitely add tubers into the mix - roasted, smashed, baked. Here are things that I eat - but because I work out heavy 4-5 days a week berries and tubers, mm.. sweet potato, definitely are a big part of my meals. I also finish them off with a big squeeze of lemon juice as the acid makes the flavours even better.
- Steak with braised kale
- Spinach with tomato, avocado, and bacon (or whatever other protein)
- Spinach with chicken, avocado, curried cauliflower, cilantro, scallion
- Fritattas, if you add lots of really good veggies and herbs it'll help keep the eggs from being boring
- Steamed cauliflower and carrots, smashed, with pork (or whatever protein)
- Root vegetable hash use: pumpkin/celery/onion/turnip/chopped greens (lower carb)
I love eating (cooked, leftover) dead animal directly from the fridge in the morning, especially poultry. Something about it being cold is more enjoyable for me when I first wake up. :)
Chicken and avocado is one of my favourite breakfasts
Nothing. I fast until noon or 1pm when I want to drop those last few pounds.
Then I break my fast with a "normal" lunch.
Hamburgers for breakfast in my new favorite thing!!!
Omg....amazing oatmeal replacement! I make a huge batch of paleo pancakes...mix of almond meal, coconut flour, eggs....etc. I use to freeze extra, but paleo versions are crumbly. Well crumble them and put in baggie in fridge....take out anytime, add almond milk and flavoring or mashed fruit. Heat and eat! It soaks up in milk, has egg protein, satisfies.
Hint...on pancakes you can mix milk and maple flavor with raw stevia, low calorie "syrup" also I nuke frozen berries...use that juice on them. I'm too hurried to cook down a syrup.
Bacon. Clam chowder. Coconut milk smoothie. Bacon. Fish roe. Pickled herring. Veal liver. Bacon. Oysters on the half shell. Sweet potato. Bacon. Blood sausage w/ sauerkraut. Jicama. Bacon. Chicken stock w/ veggies. Brazil nuts.
When I think of breakfast I think of ketchup.
Gobs and deep pools of ketchup.
I buy steaks in bulk and love grilling up a chunk or two in the morning for a condiment to my ketchup.
Check out my recipe for paleo ketchup --> here. It is awesome.
I've started eating paleo rhubarb crumble and custard for breakfast. I feel like it's the ultimate life hack, desert for breakfast, and it's healthy. AND I've finally found a way of eating eggs so that they don't taste like eggs.
I make rhubarb crumble with this recipe. The only difference is I add an extra cup or so or rhubarb and don't use lemon or coconut oil. It makes four portions.
Then I make custard by heating 2 or 3 eggs in a bain marie with half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of maple syrup (this can be left out). 10 minutes is usually enough to heat it.
Mixing the custard in with the crumble is absolutely delicious.
I worked the original crumble recipe to break down to,
per quarter: • 392 calories • 3.9 grams of protein • 18.54 grams of carbs
Rhubarb is a vegetable so it has very little sugar, about a gram and a half per cup or something if I remember. The carb count is fairly low so it should be fine for weight loss.
I would DEFINITELY go for a toasted bagel with jelly. It's fat-free, so logically it must be good for losing fat. Score!
So many great answers here! Listen to your body. Transitioning from traditional breakfast foods can be an emotional challenge. We are so use to these foods!
All of the recommendations above really work well. My only comment is that you consider eating foods that are in-season.
For example, fall and winter are really great times to include broths and broth based meals, where summer you may find steamed greens and veggies a better staple based on availability ;). Bone based soups, lighter eggs, treats like paleo pancakes, muffins, fish, chicken or leftover lunch/dinner, stew etc. This keeps us in tune with the cycles of nature.
For all of our modern distraction and confusion, we are hard-wired to the hunter-gatherer instincts that guaranteed the survival of our ancestors. We have evolved to adapt to our environment.
There were some great suggestions on a recent thread about what to feed Paleo kids with allergies for breakfast (okay, a large portion of them came from me :)). http://paleohacks.com/questions/59395/kids-with-allergies-and-breakfast/59408#59408
