  1. My recipe for a tasty low carb celeriac and courgette tortilla. Makes a great warm breakfast and also keeps well for lunch.
  2. Moms of babies/toddlers, what do your mornings look like? Do you manage to eat soon after waking up and if so, how? I just started today and need help with the logistics of eating breakfast soon after waking up. I know that is important, and it definitely makes my day better. Right now, my 6 month old is sleeping in our room but will be transitioning to sleeping in her room soon. She wakes up as soon as my husband’s alarm goes off, usually 5-6. I get up, go to the bathroom, get my coffee, turn on the lights in her room, and usually that’s about all she can take. I change her, nurse her, she plays while I pump, then if she is still happy I eat some cereal. Often I don’t eat until she goes down for her first nap, which leaves me pretty weak. I used to get up before her to eat and pump, but she’s too aware of what’s going on now. She is starting solids as soon as we get a booster seat from my mom, and I’m hoping that will help. I’m thinking then after I nurse her she can play in her high chair while I cook and then we can eat together (we are doing baby led weaning, so she’ll just eat what I’m eating). What other ideas do you have?
  3. Hi! The program says the pre and post workout meal cannot replace the breakfast, but what about if the workout is the first thing in the morning? In my case I wake up at 6 am and I have a 30 minute session of exercising at home [A non-equipment routine of jumping jacks + running in place + blurpees + lunges + abdominals + squads + push-ups + body extension] before having breakfast, take a shower and leaving to work. What is an ideal snack that I could have in order to get some energy for the workout and then be able to have a full breakfast in the morning? So far I've been having a small meal like: Orange juice + chicken/egg (protein) + avocado + few nuts (sometimes a banana) therefore, my post-workout meal is my breakfast, what can I have then? I appreciate any advice THANKS!
  4. I started the Whole30 8 days ago - going great so far. I also restarted a low intensity core strength course and getting up at 5am. I get up, have a handful of nuts, and barely break a sweat for about 45 minutes. The problem starts after the workout. I need the morning to do school before my kids get up, so want to spend 5:45-7 doing school, not eating an intentional breakfast (I found myself reading and eating today, which is not ideal) I would like time to enjoy my coffee and read / do my coursework and have breakfast with my family. Could I bridge this gap with some coconut milk and collagen in my coffee? Any other ideas? I know I could scarf something down, but I'd rather not do that
  5. Hi everybody, I am on day 15 of my first Whole30, and everything is going really well for the most part. I feel good, my clothes are fitting better, and I'm not feeling super deprived or craving anything too badly. Yay! However, I'm starting to struggling with my first meal of the day, particularly with getting enough vegetables. I can eat eggs every day no problem, as I was basically doing this every day prior to starting Whole30. But vegetables in the morning gross me out. I love veggies for lunch and dinner, so I thought maybe it was just a matter of getting used to eating them in the morning, but halfway through this thing and I still can't do it. I can stomach sweet potatoes for the most part, and I suppose there are worse things than having sweet potatoes every day for breakfast, but I'd love to know if anyone else has ideas about how to add some variety in the morning. I've tried making an egg bake with veggies in it, tried sauteeing greens with lemon and salt (nearly made me puke, had to throw it out), have done roasted all just makes me queasy first thing in the morning. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  6. Hello, I'm 23 weeks pregnant and have finally got my taste back for vegetables. I suffered with bad nausea up until a few weeks ago. To combat the nausea, I ate a lot of crackers and rice and bread. To make matters worse, my husband and I moved a couple of weeks ago. It was tough trying to cook in a kitchen when you don't know where anything is located. We ate a lot of meals out too. I've put on more weight than I should have so far. I'm ready to get back on track, but I'm having a problem with breakfast. I take the train to work. I'm up at 5am to catch the 6am train. I don't have a lot of time in the morning. I have to shower in the morning, so it doesn't leave a lot of time for making breakfast. I have such long days and I find it's better for have two mini breakfast. I have enough time to quickly scramble some eggs for breakfast at home, but I find once I get to work, I'm in need of more food before lunch. I don't have the appetite to eat anything more than a few eggs when I first get up, so eating more at home before I go isn't an option. Any ideas on a quick portable breakfast I can eat once I get to work? If it's something I can make in advance and freeze for the week, that's even better.
  7. Breakfast Advice

    Hello, I am in need of assistance about breakfast. I am on day 6 of my first Whole30 and so far doing...okay. I am definitely feeling the negative side effects mentioned (I'm exhausted even after doing nothing) but I haven't eaten anything non-compliant. My biggest struggle is breakfast: I cannot stomach having a big, full meal. I'm not a morning person and before this I wouldn't always eat breakfast, and if I did it was cereal or oatmeal, maybe yogurt (plus or minus fruit). The idea of eating eggs or anything hot and cooked literally makes me feel nauseous. Even a hard boiled egg turns my stomach. So far I've been having a banana and black tea. I know it isn't ideal but it is the only thing that doesn't make me feel nauseous. I was thinking of adding some almond butter as well (I am really missing peanut butter, ngl...). Any other suggestions for something light and easy? Thank you!
  8. Great breakfast/brunch

    I have made this a few times on Whole30 - and it is staying as part of my repertoire. Great for a weekend breakfast/brunch... Source - GREEN EGGS AND HAM SHAKSHUKA WITH LEMON DILL PESTO Makes: 2 servings (can easily be doubled) INGREDIENTS Lemon dill pesto: - ½ cup parsley, packed - ⅓ cup neutral flavored oil - ¼ cup dill, packed - Juice from 1½ lemons - 1 large garlic clove, minced - A generous pinch of sea salt Green eggs and ham shakshuka: - 1 tablespoon olive oil - ½ medium onion, thinly sliced - ½ cup diced ham or farmer's sausage - 2 garlic cloves, minced - 1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper - ¼ teaspoon ground cumin and sea salt - 5 cups finely minced kale, from about 10 stalks - 4 good-quality eggs - Olive oil, dill, Aleppo pepper, and black pepper, to garnish INSTRUCTIONS 1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 2. Place all the ingredients for the Lemon Dill Pesto in your blender or food processor. Process on low until everything is finely minced, but not completely smooth. 3. Heat the tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron or ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Lower the heat to medium and continue to cook until the onion is very soft and starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the ham or sausage to the pan and cook through, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, Aleppo pepper, cumin, and sea salt and cook for 1 minute, until the spices are fragrant. Add the kale to the pan and let it wilt. Add the kale in batches if needed, letting some wilt before adding more. 4. Take the pan off the heat and make 4 wells in the kale. Crack the eggs into the wells and place the pan in your oven for 5-7 minutes, or until the white are just set. Note: you can cook the eggs on the stovetop by keeping the pan on medium heat and covering it for 3-4 minutes. The only difference is the eggs will turn cloudy this way. They will taste the same. 5. Serve the green shakshuka topped with the lemon dill pesto, and any or all of the optional toppings. MY NOTES 1. I sometimes add more veggies - mushrooms, asparagus, diced tomatoes in particular 2. I use less lemon juice in the pesto - starting with juice from half a lemon and then add more to taste 3. Found it hard to find ham without sugar, used sausage instead 4. Made my own sausage - beef, turkey or pork.
  9. I can't seem to eat enough for breakfast to sustain me throughout the morning because I just don't have a big appetite. I'm eating based on the Whole30 meal template but can't eat much more beyond 2 eggs or a Whole 30 perfect sausage patty cooked in fat, plus a small portion of fruit/veggie. I really can't eat much more than this first thing in the morning. But then I find myself starving around 10:00-11:00. Advice??
  10. Hi! I'm almost halfway into my first whole30 and I tried something a bit different for breakfast this morning that I wanted to make sure was okay for the program (yeah I know I should have checked first...). I had poached eggs, a cup of sautéed spinach, half a small avocado, 7 sticks of red pepper, and a small apple that I had baked with some ghee and cinnamon. If the Apple is part of the meal, is that okay?
  11. Pre Post Workout and Breakfast

    Given my workout (running) and when I do it (in the morning, before work), I'm a little strapped for time. is it possible to add a little bit of food to my pre and post workout meals and just make them breakfast? im not necessarily hungry for both and don't really have the time? thank you in advance!
  12. I know breakfast has been discussed to death on the forum, but I have to ask in a specific context if anyone has any ideas. Pretty much all my adult life I have experienced morning nausea (no I am not pregnant is my mantra). It seems to be tied to dehydration- although I drink around 60oz of water per day which is sufficient for my body weight and I drink water first thing when I wake up, before coffee or anything else. It may be related to medication, can't say for sure and can't really test that. The result is I have no appetite in the morning and food grosses me out. My first whole 30 I did a lot of eggs for breakfast but I got burnt out by week 3 and now I can't even look at eggs. Then I tried doing a template meal- veg, meat, fat- and that sometimes works but most of the time makes me gag or worse and I can't get it down. I know I need to eat in the morning- not just because of the rules but for my body's best health, but I just can't seem to find anything appetizing in that first hour. Has anyone else dealt with morning sickness/ extreme food aversion in the morning? Any thoughts on gentle compliant breakfast ideas without eggs? Thanks in advance.
  13. Breakfast on-the-go HELP!

    I work a 8:00 am - 5:00 pm job so I have little time for breakfast. Is there some recipes for something I can pick up as I'm walking out the door and eat in the car. Right now I am eating a banana and some cashews but I want something a little more satisfying.
  14. 1 meal x 5 days (could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner) Ground turkey + Roasted brussel sprouts + sweet potatoes What You Need (for meals for one person) 1 lb brussel sprouts 2 large sweet potato 1.5 lb ground turkey Cooking spray Olive oil Spices- garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper Foil Two baking sheets Large Skillet Preheat oven to 400. Slice brussel sprouts in half if they are large. Put foil on a baking sheet and spray. Pour brussels onto baking sheet. Drizzle with small amount of olive oil. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Put in oven. (don’t worry if it’s not fully preheated, it will be fine) Set a timer for 20 minutes. Peel sweet potato. Chop into bite sized pieces. Put foil on another baking sheet and spray. Pour potatoes onto baking sheet. Drizzle with small amount of olive oil. Season with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Put in oven. While these are cooking in the oven, start the ground turkey. Spray a large saute pan and turn heat on medium. Put in ground meat and start to brown, stirring often. As this starts to brown, season with garlic, chili powder, paprika and cumin. Salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to keep an eye on brussels and potatoes. When a fork can easily pierce through, they are done. Remove all food from heat when it is finished cooking and allow to cool. Portion your meals into containers.
  15. Anyone aware of a compliant pre-packaged frozen shredded hash brown? I have a great omelette recipe that I used pre-Whole 30 with hash browns and smoked salmon, but everything I find has dextrose in it (Ore-Ida, Giant Eagle, etc.). I would super prefer not to break out the knuckle-grater!
  16. Wellshire Farms Sugar Free Paleo Bacon at Whole Foods (Hyde Park Chicago) @ $5.99 for 8 oz. super yummy!!!
  17. So tired of eggs

    So, to explain why I seem to have little time. Husband deployed. I have a toddler, and 4 month old. And I work from home. Eggs seem to be my go to. They are quick, and easy to add things too. The problem is. I am sooooo over eggs now! What are your super quick meal go to's? This weekend I plan on meal prepping and planning. But am looking for inspiration in case I forget to pull out the prepped freezer meal.
  18. I'm usually rushing out the door in the morning because i have 2 kids i've got to get ready and then myself ready and off to work. So if i do eat breakfast it's usually something quick like cereal or nothing at all. I have friends who are telling me that breakfast porridge would be SWYPO or a compliant breakfast muesli recipe I found might also be SWYPO because it's the spirit of "cereal". I'm not wanting to commit to cook every single morning because I know that just isn't gonna happen no matter how early i got up or how much prep i did the night before. So I'm hoping to find a nice porridge i can make int he crock pot that i can add some side veggies and fruit on top of to have a quick breakfast that i know i can sustain past the 30 days. Is this possible? would I ruin my whole whole30 if I tried to do this possible "SWYPO"?
  19. So I need some help here with my hubby. He decided to join me on this Whole30 journey (started August 1st) - he's a diet soda addict as well as a Splenda addict - so I'm really happy to have him join me. The problem is Veggies. I have made him scrambled eggs, which he loves, along with compliant bacon, but getting veggies into him has been a challenge. I have tried fresh tomato slices with a little salt, pepper and olive oil (and these are fresh Jersey Heirloom tomatoes - soo very tasty ). He claims that he can't eat tomatoes (or for that a vegetable) at breakfast because "they aren't breakfast foods". (Just an FYI - he also does not like to have any form of eggs for lunch or dinner because "they are breakfast foods"). One thought is that I make him an omelet - he said he would give one a try with mushrooms - does any one else have any ideas?
  20. Substitutions for Chia

    I saw a delicious breakfast recipe in which chia pudding was the base. I don't like the texture of chia seed in pudding form and was wondering if there is anything else that could replace the chia in this recipe. Would tapioca be okay? The original recipe is: 1/2 cup chia seeds 2 cups coconut milk 1 hearty dash of cinnamon (optional) Mix all together, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Thanks!!!
  21. Meal 1 1/4 lb homemade turkey breakfast sausage 1/2 sweet potato Equal amount Brussels sprouts 1/2 avocado
  22. Hey, so for breakfast I'm having a bowl of: -1/2 avocado - one banana - two strawberries - 15 blueberries - dried goji berries - cacao nibs - acai powder - bee pollen. Is this too much sugar? I believe it's all compliant but just want to make sure this is cool. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hi, trying to figure out how to structure my morning meals.... any guidance would be great! I am up by 5:00 to get in my workout. Usually having a HB egg or a handful of almonds, some coffee.... then I need to be done working out by 6:00. Generally I just eat a normal breakfast ie. eggs, veggies, fat (avocado or eggs fried in oil), a starch (because PWO) and sometimes some fruit. I am wondering though if I should follow more of the whole30 workout suggestions and have a PWO snack after my workout, some protein, maybe a starchy veg.... but then I don't know when I would have breakfast. I finish my workout, eat, shower, get the kids ready, and am out the door by 7:15 and at work for the day. What would you recommend?
  24. Quick and easy breakfast

    Good breakfast in five minutes so I don't get bored with baccon and eggs every day: I am always in a CRAZY hurry in the morning, and while I TRY to have lunch ready the night before I have about a 50% success rate at this, so half the time I am trying to make lunch too. I end up running out the door with my daughter under one arm brushing my hair with the other and hopping on one foot trying to get my shoe on. So I need some good breakfast ideas I can make in about 5 minutes. Normal whole 30 appropriate breakfasts I have had: Eggs with bacon and sliced tomato and fruit (good, quick, filling- but I don't want the same thing every day for a month - also that's a lot of baccon) Eggs over a bed of greens and chopped raw veggies (not too satisfying, hungry and not too delicious) Omelette with pan fried mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, garlic, and some raw avacado and tomato: Delishious and very satisfying but took too long to cook for a weekday (for a weekend it would be perfect) Eggs over hash browns with sauteed veggies (like mushrooms and onion) (delicious and satisfying but took too long to cook) Fruit with coconut whipped cream and topped with shredded coconut (delicious but doesn't last all morning) Peice of chicken breast with an avacado: (Made me sick to my stomach) What do I eat when NOT whole 30: Baccon and eggs with tomato and fruit Eggs and toast with tomato and/or fruit Toast and peanut butter with fruit (doesn't keep me full all morning) Toast with avacado (doesn't keep me full all morning) Oatmeal made with milk fruit and nuts Baccon and/or egg and/or cheese sandwich This is the sort of food I have time to make. Suggestions?
  25. I am currently on Day 10 of my first Whole30, and if I eat another egg for breakfast, I feel like I may vomit. I have tried chia seeds in coconut milk, but I am not getting any vegetables or protein with it (and since I love the combination of chia, mango, coconut, and lime, I can seriously overeat it - so I think it is better for me to stay away). I thought I would drift into the unrecommended territory of smoothies. All smoothie recipes I see that have Whole30 attached to them seem to miss the point with being very high in fruit content, so I wanted to get your opinion on one I have created and see if you think it would be OK to throw into the breakfast rotation every few days. 1 cup approved almond milk 1 banana 1 thumb sized portion of almond butter 1 scoop Bulletproof collagen protein (pasture raised, no sugar, no additives, etc.) 1 handful spinach 1 handful kale 2 tbsp. Cacao powder I think I have rounded out the portions ok - one fat from the nut butter, 2 veggies, 1 protein (from the collagen protein) and one serving of my two allowable fruits per day. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
