New to Paleo…Breakfast

Answered on January 14, 2014

I'm new to paleo. Every morning I eat a green smoothie made with avocado, spinach, kale, parsley, blueberries, chia seeds, almond milk and spices. Do I need to add more to my breakfasts? or is this enough?

Oh, the almond milk was home made. Actually not that hard, very cheap, and way better for you.

If it leaves you satisfied and energized, keep with it, but I happen to like egg "tortillas" (scrambled eggs poured into a frying pan to make a circular shape) wrapped around grassfed cheese or turkey bacon, or, if I'm in a hurry, plain full-fat yogurt or cottage cheese, or bananas with almond butter.

Chia seeds arent really paleo enough for breakfast every day IMO (omega 6). Plus they seriously swell and remove water from your body. Kinda weird food I think. But people who love chia seeds, seem to get attached to the idea, or like em, so thats all ill say on that...

Personally id need more for breakfast. I'm primal, so I do yogurt or omellette, or occasionally nuts and almond milk (and a few berries - macadamias, almonds and a few walnuts), or fruit. When I was pure paleo, I did chicken with tomatto and salt, omellette, or the nut thing.

Apparently protein the morning is good for the hormone 'leptin'. Doesn't always have to be "breakfasty" either.

thanks this helps! I'm a little pressed for time in the am as I teach first thing come home and have to get the kids off to school. I guess I will jut have to prep more;). I usually make my smothers really thick and eat them with a spoon as "drinking" breakfast just doesn't feel the same.

IMO the less processed the better (ie do you make your own almond milk or use the boxed kind with additives?). Once I removed boxed milks from my diet I felt loads better. Personally, if I 'drink' my breakfast I am much less satisfied and get hungrier much sooner than I do when I chew my food. I eat a mostly fat/protein rich breakfast, such as 3 whole eggs with avocado and veggies cooked in ghee. Most days I'll also include some leftover meat as well. I avoid carbs first thing as I find they make me ravenous later but that's just what works for me. Try experimenting with different breakfasts and keep track of how you feel afterwards.

I always start my day with banana! My breakfast also include 6 eggs omelette (6 whites, 3 yolks) with dill & parsley and raw walnuts.

Hope that helps.

do you feel satisfied from it?? all depends what you are eating the rest of the day. i always start my day with meat and starches (sweet potatoes or green bananas) as i find it fills me up for hours.
