Oh, fun!     As it is currently Eight Billion Degrees here today, I thought I'd start off this morning with a salad.  And yes, I ate it out of a huge tupperware because as we always say, you

I thought to post this shot of my breakfast prep this morning.  On the weekend I diced 5 bell peppers, 3# green beans, a bunch of steamed potatoes and some ham (note, the ham is not compliant but I am

2 pounds ground chicken (I use ground chicken thighs as it's moister...if you use ground breast, add some of the bacon fat for richness) 1 pound bacon, diced and cooked until very crispy,

I'm busy with my kids in the mornings so I batch cook huge amounts of paleo chili (basically regular chili but I use chunks of zuchinni instead of beans) and freeze them into meal sized portions and just pop one in the microwave most mornings. I save my dinner leftovers for lunch when I can sit down and actually enjoy the variety, but the chili works to makes sure I get fed in the morning madness. I have been doing this for years now (since my first whole 30). Sometimes I'll eat something else but there is always a huge stack of paleo something sitting in containers in my freezer for easy breakfasts, especially since I don't eat eggs. I've always hated breakfast food so this was a very welcome lifestyle change.

I too don't like eggs in a recognizable form, although if cooked hard mixed with lots of other flavors I can stomach them. I found out the dislike of the eggy taste is a recessive gene having to do with the sulphur compounds. I have 5 close family members who share this. It's similar to the gene that causes 10% of the population to think fresh cilantro tastes like soap. I have no other food dislikes and like liver, all veggies, okra, and am an adventurous eater of strange foreign foods. Turns out I'm a Supertaster. Google it to find out if you are too-- easy test you can do. Also related to number of tastebuds.


how interesting, I loathe eggs and cilantro haha

I ate eggs over roasted broccoli this am with coconut cream in my coffee. but a lot of mornings (because I work afternoons/evenings) I make veggie fritters of some kind - cauliflower, zucchini, potato, with an egg and coconut shreds to bind. Usually make a larger batch and have some for work too. Also I sometimes make a big batch of soup for dinner and I find a really like eating soup in the am with usually some additional veg or avocado on the side.

I guess I have to think of breakfast differently than what I would consider traditional breakfast foods. Those are all meals I would normally eat for lunch or dinner. I'm going to try just having last night's dinner leftovers for breakfast the next morning and see how I feel. I think I am just used to a less intricate breakfast (I used to make quinoa like oatmeal with fruit mixed in) or I'd have a smoothie with fruits and veggies. I am sick to death of eggs. Still not so sure how I feel about a salad for breakfast. Maybe I'll just do a vegetable stir fry (peppers, onions, garlic) and a side of chicken or beef sausage.

Thank you all for posting your breakfast ideas. I just need to adjust my thinking (it's another meal, I don't need to call it breakfast).

Today was my first day on Whole30, and I made sweet potato toast with almond butter and bananas for breakfast.


This is compliant, but we really, really recommend you make all your meals match the meal template. This meal is lacking protein (almond butter is  a fat), and is pretty light on the vegetables. Maybe try sweet potato toast topped with taco-seasoned ground meat, guacamole, tomatoes, and if you like a little spice, some jalapenos. Or sweet potato toast topped with smoked salmon, avocado, tomato, and red onion.

Elvis burger (hamburger patty topped with almond butter, banana, and bacon), collard greens, and sweet potatoes (yes, they were slightly burnt. One of these days I'll learn to set a timer). 

I had no idea about the existence of a burger topped with nut butter, banana and bacon! And that it was called Elvis! (Living in Europe may explain it). Many thanks for sharing it, it seems an "interesting" pairing.
