No. More. Eggs.

Recommended Posts

Ok everyone, I am on day 26 of my very first Whole30! I am so excited that I have made it this long (and through the holidays!), but for the love of all things holy, I canNOT eat another g.d. egg.


My typical day looks like the following:


Breakfast: Made to order before work, 2-3 eggs (scrambled or over medium), couple handfuls of tomatoes + spinach, Aidell's apple sausage or one slice of W30 compliant bacon.


Lunch: Leftovers from previous night's dinner.


Dinner: Have been following recipes straight from the Whole 30 book, and then adding in heaps of roasted veggies, or starting dinner with a large salad.


Snacks: Limited but sometimes a banana or orange before bed. Or if I am feeling a little tired before my workout I will eat some epic bites or a mini Larabar.


I tracked macros the first week to make sure I wasn't lacking in protein, fats, or carbs, after that I just planned meals and ate until I was no longer hungry.


My problem is that I feel like an enormous amount of success has come from the fact that I simply cook a little bit more at dinner, to have lunch for the next day. My husband suggested eating the leftovers for breakfast, but then I would have no lunch (the whole idea kind of runs around all scary in my head and stresses me out, which is the precise reason I NEEDED the Whole30)


SO, as long winded as that was, does anyone have any super quick breakfasts that I can make fresh before work that doesn't include eggs?

Egg free breakfast has been discussed at length on the forum.  the easiest way to search the forum is using google.


I've started you off here:




Halfway down the page is a list of forum threads from Whole 30 but there are a lot of good links

Cook even MORE extra at dinner and have leftovers for breakfast and lunch (or breakfast the first day after, and lunch the second day after so you don't get bored eating the same meal three times in a row).  KWIM?


Also, in the time it takes to cook eggs you could probably brown some ground meat (I love pork at breakfast) and sauté some veggies.

I know I'm a bit late to the punch, but another idea is turkey or chicken sausage.


I buy 1-2 lb (or more if it's cheap at the farmer's market) of ground turkey, and season it with sage, thyme, salt, pepper, and a dash of cayenne. Add 1-2 tsp avocado or olive oil (it keeps it from getting dry, especially if you get the extra lean variety), and leave it in the fridge for an hour or overnight. Form into patties (I do 16 patties/lb for easy portioning), and stove cook.


It's fast, cost-effective, and then you have breakfast ready to go for several days. I portion them into either Ziploc bags or Pyrex dishes for easy grab-and-go.
