What sort of meat can I make for myself on short notice for breakfast? I've had no luck finding paleo-friendly sausage at the nearby 'Whole' Foods, and I'm at a loss as to how to get more protein in the morning. Would a vegetable omelette perhaps be enough?
We also cook in advance at our house. I make my own sausage (both country and Italian) on Saturdays (surprisingly easy), and pre-cook it for the week.
I also cook up a couple of rashers of bacon (on a cookie sheet in the oven) and roast a half a dozen local, pasture-fed chicken thighs (We have friends who like the breasts, so we buy 3 birds, use the bonier parts for stock, cook the legs for curry, share out the boneless, skinless breasts--we keep the bones and skin--and use the thighs straight up -- which I can then use for anything from tossing into a salad to eating right off the bone for breakfast).
I also usually make a meat loaf or a big pot of chili or meatballs and veggies.
OH... and hard boil a dozen eggs -- you never know when they're going to come in handy over the week.
This, with some salad greens and veggies, feeds 2 people for 7 days, plus some extra for our friends. We don't really pay that much attention to the time of day that we're eating -- so we may have chicken in a salad for breakfast, hard-boiled egg and a few slices of bacon mid-day, and a mug of broth and hard boiled egg, or slices of meatloaf with whipped cauliflower for supper... just all depends.
One of my favorite breakfasts are smoked wild salmon. You can wrap it up in lettuce, eat w/ some sauteed asparagus, eat w/ some eggs and asparagus, sear it and put it in an omelette.
In addition, if I am in a hurry I will buy Applegate Cold cuts, roast beef, and the ham are really good. I use that to add more protein to my eggs, or sometimes just have that with some tubers.
I'll eat natural, preservative free sausage or hotdogs (unfortunately, not sure if it's grass fed) with eggs and broccoli. Or, grass fed ground beef that I can scramble quickly, or an omelette. Also, I like to boil eggs in advance and keep them in the fridge to grab quickly & peel and eat.
Other quick breakfasts would be a protein shake (with either coconut milk, almond milk, or a mix of both) using plain, unflavored protein powder.
I also like to pre-pack portions of kale, wheatgrass, berries, and lemon juice into little ziploc bags so in the morning (or any time of the day), I just open the bag and dump it into my blender with some water and ice to make green berry juice, which I then strain into a cup.
If I'm really in a hurry and pretty much only have time to grab something and go... I grab a bag of beef jerky.
Hope this helped some! :)
I like leftover pork and chicken in the morning, chopped or shredded you can mix with tubers, herbs, and make a quick hash with or without eggs. If you prepare the night before and keep in a prep container its really great. You can also sear up a steak in seconds, I like with roasted potatoes and braised kale with lemon. I also make my own sausage patties, no need for casing, and those are great in a pinch as well.
Prep is what takes time, so if you have tubers, proteins, veg prepped and ready to grab and go for cooking - you'll be aces.
I buy a heap of ground meat either beef, turkey, kangaroo ETC and then mix it with eggs, corriander, garlic, various spices, chilli etc...I then seperate into rissoles and bake in the oven.
I individually wrap them and then every morning I grab one out - heat it up and add some mashed up avocado or sauteed spinich in coconut oil or a few eggs....
Such an easy and simple way to eat meat for breaky...and absolutely delicious!
Not boring either as you can mix up which type of meat you choose that day and also what you have it with eg avo, greens, etc.
Great pre-made pre-cooked liverwurst, headcheese, beef sticks, salami and braunschwager from US WELLNESS meats. I love that company. Just got my first order yesterday. A slice of headcheese (has beef heart and tongue) over my eggs is delicious.
