Hello everyone! :D I am new to the forum here, I'm glad to be here with other Paleo enthusiasts!

I am a college student, and recently getting into the Paleo diet. (baby steps....)

I'm looking for FAST (10 min or less), low-budget, Paleo breakfast idea for weekdays before class. If anyone has any that they could recommend, I'd appreciate the input. Cheers!

Fruit! If you are going to eat fruit, it's best to eat it in the morning on an empty stomach :)

Hard boiled eggs. Tuna or other fish from a can or pouch. If you do dairy, cottage cheese. I do a tuna/cottage cheese combo on a regular basis. That much protein lasts me a long time... Fruit is also easy to grab and go.

    Before bed, I take a portion of beef, such as 6 oz. chuck steak, out of the freezer and put it in the fridge. I also put a skillet and spatula on the stove.

    In the morning, I pre-heat the skillet and plop in the piece of beef. I can do other things while it cooks; I just stop by and flip it over at some point, adding black pepper or whatever.

    When cooked, it takes 30 seconds to wash the skillet and spatula and the meat tastes great in the morning. I have good energy even if I don't eat again until late afternoon.

    Raw eggs, crack them into a bowl or mug and just down them. Some people prefer them without the shells.

    My breakfasts usually consist of some combination of eggs, potato, sausage or bacon, and a salad. When I have more time, I make everything. When I have less time, I usually just settle for the eggs, sausage and potato. (Or eggs and sausage and then grab a banana on the way out.)

    I make eggs scrambled. Eggs are awesome because they are super quick to make if you're in a hurry, and you can just throw about any veggie in there you may have had from the night before or something. I also love a hard cheese in the eggs, if you're OK with dairy.

    I make sausage patties from bulk pork breakfast sausage on the weekend (I order this from a local farm but you can probably find it in stores or from a local butcher). I freeze all the sausage patties and then just reheat one or two on the stove or in the microwave for a minute in the morning. You can make enough sausage and freeze it cooked to have some every morning for a few weeks or more, depending on how much you eat/cook at once.

    If you don't make the sausage I find the "Jones Dairy Farm" Pork Breakfast Sausages are actually pretty good, and really affordable, though of course not grass fed, but there's just "pork, water, salt, spices" as ingredients, and gluten free. Then there's always bacon :)

    Finally, I also love potatoes (sweet and white) and usually bake a dozen or so from the week and keep them in the fridge. In the morning, I just microwave it for a minute and slather butter on it. If I have a little more time to eat, I also eat a salad (escarole, romaine, etc.) that I cut up the night before, stored in plastic bags in the fridge. Just throw some olive oil and whatever else you want on it (I use apple cider or balsamic vinegar).

    Buy sweet potatoes, sausage crumbles, a dozen eggs, and some avocados. Grate the potatoes and toss with salt, pepper and any spices you like (like cumin or even curry) and keep the shreds in the fridge (so you can eat 'em for a couple days).

    In the AM, pop the shreds and sausage in some hot oil (or bacon fat) and stir fry so you get a hash. You can adjust the potato/sausage ratio depending on your liking. In another pan, poach/fry/scramble your egg(s). Serve up the hash, top with your egg and garnish with slices of avocado. Enjoy!

    I make paleo pancakes ahead of time and store them in the frig. (and sometimes the same for some bacon). They reheat quickly in the microwave when I'm in a hurry. My favorite is coconut blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup and a glass of cold raw milk. yummy.

    Spend an hour on Sunday and make a week's worth of paleo granola. I like this one (but I do it w/o the maple syrup):

    http://paleomg.com/pumpkin-granola/

    ...and this one:

    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/sweet-and-salty-primal-trail-mix/#axzz296Xp3qbe

    I eat them with unsweetened almond milk, as if they were cereal. While you're making the granola, you can also make a large batch of bacon - it will keep refrigerated for the week, and it's a nice accompaniment to the somewhat sweet granola.

    Alternatively, you could also make a large batch of meatballs on Sunday and eat a few for breakfast every morning. This is standard practice in my house...

    Good luck!

    The best and easiest breakfast I like is a hard boiled eggs (6) once boiled, peel and take a pound of sausage meat and "wrap" each egg, using the 1 lb of sausage meat between the 6 eggs. After that wrap 1 piece of bacon around each "sausage egg". Bake at 350 for about 30 mins or until bacon and sausage are cooked. These can be eaten hot or cold. Within 10 min prep time and about 1 hour total cooking, you have a great breakfast for 6 days. Added benefit, you can eat it on the go

    I keep one pound of ground beef in the fridge, and for a <5 min meal just slice off about 1/3lb and throw it in the pan and dice it up, throw it on some veggies/salad and I'm good to go with <5 mins of work!

    Heat up a frying pan and put a little olive oil in. Throw in a sausage. Chop up a few mushrooms, start them sauteeing in the other half of the pan. Turn the sausage until it's fully cooked, the mushrooms should be cooked by then, add a couple handfulls of spinach and mix it in with the mushrooms to wilt it down. Plate the veggies and sprinkle either with a little cheese (if you do that) or nuts (I like hazelnuts especially with the mushroom/spinach mixture). Throw the sausage on top and enjoy.

    An avocado with salt and pepper is usually what I eat for breakfast when I don't feel like cooking eggs. The fat does a good job of keeping hunger away until lunch time.

    A local, family owned grocery store sells packages of pre-sliced sirloin steak for a couple bucks. I'll sautee half the package in some lard on high heat, maybe some sliced onion if I feel like it. I may also add some baby spinach at the end. I'll eat that with a whole avocado. Takes less than five minutes to make.

    This requires a food processor with a shredding attachment.. but it's awesome.

    • Over the weekend take a few sweet potatoes, skin them, and shred them completely. Put the shredded pieces in a big air tight container and just keep it in your fridge.
    • On weekdays heat up coconut oil in your skillet, drop the shredded sweet potato on top and season with this. Once that's done throw it on your plate and fry up a few eggs in your left over oil/seasoning. Put the fried eggs on top of your sweet potato hash.. enjoy!

    Boil eggs en masse once a week. That's the quickest breakfast for me. I also sometimes make big batches of grain free waffles, freeze them, and stick portions under the broiler while scrambling up some eggs. On a normal day, my usual breakfast takes 15 minutes tops if I start things in the correct order. Sometimes I nuke a sweet potato while making my eggs since they take less time than a white potato. Or I'll bake them en masse and keep them in the fridge (like with the eggs!).

    Can you cook it on the weekend and freeze? My favorite is making a quiche with not crust. Mix stuff like this below in a bowl.

    • Eggs
    • Heavy cream
    • some onions
    • raw cheese or regular
    • broccoli (any veggie but this tastes the best to me in quiche)

    Quantities will depend on what size pan you use but you want to put more eggs than cream so it will "set up" in the oven. Butter the bottom and sides of the dish before you pour in the ingredients.

    After it cooks I let it cool and wrap individual portions in saran wrap twice, put in freezer and heat in the microwave in the mornings. This works best if you use a rectangle or square dish and not a pie tin.

    If you don't want to use dairy THIS is awesome...bacon/veggie quiche.

    Yeah, I can cook something in ten minutes so eggs are my go to....but I'll be the heretic that says you can mix any fat with a quality whey protein product for a quicky. My wife does coconut milk, chocolate whey and some berries (oh and a couple shots of espresso) in the mornings. She's a night shift worker so I guess I should say in the evenings.

    Bulletproof coffee is an awesome way to start your day IMHO. It's low toxin coffee that you blend with grass-fed butter, MCT oil, and coconut oil. If you like it sweet you can add some xylatol and vanilla. If you have an automatic coffee maker, you could set it the night before and then it would take about 2 minutes to put the ingredients in a blender and go!

    When I'm really in a rush, I'll slice up an apple and dip it in almond butter. Bananas taste great as well.

    I like to make a cold "oatmeal" substitute that is quite tasty as well. In a small cup or bowl, pour in 3-4 tablespoons of chia seeds. Add 1/4 cup cold water. Stir, and let sit for a minute or two, and stir again. The seeds will soften, expand, and release a very detoxifying gelatinous mixture. Pour in 1/4 cup almond flour. I add a enough almond milk to get the desired texture of oatmeal, toss in some walnuts and blueberries, and enjoy!

    Leftovers! As I serve dinner I put a meal size portion aside in a small saucepan, then put the saucepan in the fridge. In the morning it's heat-and-eat, max 10min, often a lot less. Stew/casserole/soup/curry/chilli type dishes work best.

    My quick, go to breakfast when I'm not in my kitchen, but have access to a supermarket is a tin of tuna, and an antipasto salad from the deli section. The salad is olive oil soaked sun dried tomatoes, eggplant, olives and artichokes. I crack the can of tuna and pour it on top of the salad, and maybe an avocado if I am in the mood. Costs me under $10 and is fat based, it's awesome.

    Frittata - make it the night before and reheat a serving in the morning.
    http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-a-frittata-170717

    or/

    baked ham and egg cups. Depending on how you like your eggs this could be a make ahead.
    http://lindsayslist.co/2012/08/paleo-egg-and-ham-cups/

    Either of the recipes are pretty hands free once they are in the oven, so you can get it started and go about your daily ablutions.
