I would like to hear some typical combos and amounts of stuff I should be putting into my eggs n' bacon meal. I usually use 3 eggs, 3 slices of bacon and 1/2 tbsp of butter but I feel like I could/should be doing something differently... any suggestions?
I'm gross, so let's establish that upfront.
Here is what I just ate:
Three eggs fried up in coconut oil.
Then I steamed some spinach and prepared some canned salmon by adding in home made mayo (from Primal Blueprint Cookbook) and red bell peppers and onions.
Then I globbed them all together - the eggs, the salmon and the spinach - and mixed'em up and ate'em.
Good stuff! :)
Breakfast Protein Ideas:
1) scrambled/easy-over/medium-over eggs and bacon or sausage
2) scrambled/easy-over/medium-over egg with leftover ground meat - could be taco, chili, etc.
3) steak and eggs!
4) hard-boiled eggs with sliced avocado/guacamole
We always have some starch like sweet potatoes, plantains, or bananas with heavy whipped cream! Sometimes a side of leftover veggies depending on the day!
We cook eggs in butter, ghee or leftover bacon fat. We cook meat in tallow.
Add some fermented sauerkraut (especially homemade) to the meat after it's cooked and what a meal!
Bacon isn't a regular part of my diet, but if I do have it I cook the eggs in the bacon fat. I don't add an additional fats.
Most days when I have eggs I saute up some veggies in butter or ghee--I just use whatever veggies I have on hand with particular preference to any leftover veggies from last night's dinner. Then I usually dice up and throw in whatever leftover meat I have left over from the night before. Once that is all heated through I pour in a couple of beaten eggs for a nice hearty scramble.
About once a month or so I cook up a package of chicken livers or livers & hearts and chop up a few of those to put in my morning scramble with veggies every day until they are gone (usually 3-4 days).
Breakfast is easy and has to be quick for me... I am doing the Leptin Reset, so need to be eating it within 30 min...
3 eggs cooked Coconut Oil (2-3tbs), Chopped onions or garlic if I have it.
Then 7+ ounces of some kind of meat
Just lately I've fallen into the habit of doing some chicken livers first in an itty-bitty Teflon skillet, then a couple of over-easy firm eggs (both at once) which cleans the skillet spic and span. Don't even need a whole paper towel for cleanup, just a Kleenex will do. Cool, huh?
I sear/cook an 8oz steak (med-rare) in a pan with some seasonings and coconut oil. Steam about 60-80g of raw baby spinach in the micro w/ about a tablespoon of kerry gold. Fry up 2 eggs in a small non stick pan, using EVOO, Coconut Oil, or Kerry gold (depending)
I eats the every am, usually I premake it and heat it up when I get to work...
