Morning!  I had shredded roasted chicken in a bowl, with a smidge of salsa, and then piled shredded cheddar cheese.  Nuked it for a minute, and it was wonderful!  Added sine cherry tomatoes alongside.  I have trouble finding things for breakfast, but my mainstay the last month has been my wonderful hamburger soup.  I brown a lb of lean hamburger, half a package of nitrate-free chorizo, pour into a crockpot with a couple of pints of my canned tomatoes (no sugar) from last summer, various veggies chopped (onions, zucchini, carrots, celery, turnips, and especially kale or spinach).  Add a little water, put the lid on and it's ready for the next day's breakfast.  I used to drain the meat really well, but now I don't.  I pour the whole saucepan into the crockpot.  Chorizo has enough spices for the soup without adding much of anything else.  Yum!

Boy, you guys have some good stuff. I eat breakfast at work due to my schedule so it's usually grab n go; today it was a hard-boiled egg, a slice of cheddar and a small handful of raw almonds. Dinner leftovers are common too. But I love that I wasn't hungry for hours, whereas if I'd eaten my previously favorite breakfast of a big bowl of oatmeal with fruit in it, I'd be starving by 9.

I'm a sucker for scrambled eggs and a couple strips of baked nitrite free bacon. If I have them around, add a coconut flour biscuit with pastured butter and sugar free jam.  Heavenly.

Today as most mornings I had the fruit smoothie with strawberries recipe from the WBC.  I've tried the scones with blueberries and scrambled eggs with either asparagus or peppers/onions but I always go back to the fruit smoothie.

I had the WBCB Grainless Granola with cream. It's the best tasting cereal I've ever eaten. I can't get sugarfree hazelnut syrup so add 10 drops of stevia to the coconut oil instead. I also eat it for snacks with a bit of greek yoghurt. Nomnom :)

Sounds like a good dish Loanne... but a little strange for breakfast!  lol

Yes, I agree, my soup is strange for breakfast... :)  But it's filling and I'm never hungry, sometimes not even for lunch, which I may eat later in the afternoon.  Eggs don't sit well with me, but sometimes I  have them mixed with chorizo or veggies.  I do miss cereal, I have to admit.  I've tried all variations I've read about, but can't find any that come close that are low-carb.  Sometimes I have just cheese and veggies of some sort...maybe leftovers form the night before.  Am forced to be creative!!  :)

I had 3 slices of bacon, kale and spinach with grape tomatoes, sliced onions and garlic sauteed in some of the bacon grease then 2 scrambled local eggs.  I have added the sauteed greens in the last month and love it plus bumps up my veg intake. This is mostly the breakfast I eat now.  Depending on when I make it, I am not hungry until late in the afternoon or dinner time.  I haven't been a breakfast cereal eater for decades as it never made me feel good (DUH!!!).  Now and then I make that chia hot cereal.  :)

Since I don't want ford in my stomach for my morning yoga practice, I don't eat anything till afterwards.....then it's a handful of nuts and seeds. Then a few hours later, we'll have brunch. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm hardly ever hungry!

A small bowl of cantaloupe and nuts with our coffee. A little later we will have leftover scrambled eggs that were cooked with sautéed veggies (onions, zucchini, red cabbage, mushrooms), crumbled sausage and grated Parmesan cheese. I thought of making it into a frittata, but decided scrambling was faster.


Almost everything I cook I make enough for leftovers...makes life much easier!

A bit of cantaloupe and nuts w/ our coffee. The rest of breakfast will be a boiled egg with leftover fried, seasoned chicken livers (fried in coconut oil). Will not make the livers again...they didn't get crispy and I don't think I like cumin.

This is my very first post here. Just read all the responds and the food combinations are hysterical .LOL.  *I had a half a grapefruit, and 2 scrambled eggs with feta and green onion in it.*  Well, it made me smile and that is good! I just had almond pancakes with sugar free syrup and my unfiltered coffee.
Alright, I made a mistake , I thought the feta cheese and the onion was on top of the grapefruit, LOL!  Who knows, that might be delicious! ??

I had my regular hamburger/chorizo/veggie soup for breakfast.  It was the last bit in the bowl, so I think I'll move onto something else for breakfast now.  Been having that for several weeks.  Good, though!

I had two scrambled eggs w/2 tbsp cream cheese softened w/one packet Zylitol for sweetness, I added the cream cheese to the eggs.  The eggs were cooked like an omelet and I added the cream cheese after it was mostly cooked through,  and two pieces of bacon and a few grape tomatoes.  Yum!

Chia seed breakfast bowl, with modifications. I used 1/2 frozen banana for each serving (thin slices), added 1 tbsp. of HWC and some Truvia in the morning, and topped with a little grain-free granola from the WBC. So good!

What is your recipe for almond pancakes? Can you share it here? Or perhaps reply with a link to the recipe? I would love to try these for breakfast. TIA

You know, since I quit my 'old' smoothie routine (chobani yogurt, fruit and coconut water.....way high carbs!) I realize I don't eat breakfast anymore.......a few nuts mid morning after walking/yoga......then brunch.....then dinner.

What I find interesting is that if you take any one of these breakfasts and put it on a plate next to a bowl of oatmeal (or a plate of artisan breads, for that matter), you have to ask yourself, "What was I thinking?"


For decades I (we?) bought into the story that oatmeal or some other cereal made up a good breakfast. Maybe with some blueberries on it. But I never saw that a plate of vegetables, meat, eggs, seeds and nuts, a little fruit, was actually more nutritious. Duh. How come I couldn't see it?

Well, speaking for myself, I was totally brainwashed by too many ads in mags and on tv and believed all the BS coming from Big Ag and Big Food.
I am so much smarter today, thanks to a large degree to the internet and to forums like this and blogs such as Dr. D's. I could kick myself for all those
years of eating the "healthy low calorie frozen dinners" and avoiding fat like the plague. No wonder every damned diet I tried ended up with me gaining
all the weight right back, again and again. Always put the blame on myself, "not enough will power", etc.
