Hi and welcome, Type A.
In the simplest terms, for me, it's food prep that makes my breakfast quick and simple. It's the
stuff I make in advance, cut up into portions that allow me to assemble, rather than cook from
scratch every day.
I can give you a quick overview of the foods I like for breakfast, but it's an individual thing, I think
because I'm not someone who loves breakfast foods and never did.
I often bake compliant muffins when I have time and freeze them, so any morning I want one,
removing it from the freezer, putting it in my toaster oven to defrost and warm. I usually eat it
plain but just as nice with ghee.
Eggs, hard boiled and ready to eat is a quick protein source if you're in a hurry.
A rice cake with nut butter.
Compliant toaster waffles....or when you have time, make your own and freeze.
What makes things easy for me is baking ahead, freezing and having portions individually packaged.
Turkey bacon....also cooked in advance, and easy to add to anything else I'm eating.
A few whole grapefruits, cut up and put into a large container in the refrigerator. Easy to portion
out whatever amount I feel like eating.
Protein shakes with any type of fruit....but still, if you want to make this easy on yourself, the
night before, measure out your protein source...have your berries in a container ready to add
to the mixture and all you'd be doing in the morning is assembling everything and putting into
Granola bars made in advance. Granola made in advance or store bought....compliant soy milk,
rice milk, almond milk.....fruit already cut up, ready to add.
if I'm really in a rush to get out of my house in the AM, the night before I put my tea leaves into
a tea strainer, sitting on top of a tea cup...so I save at least one step. I put out my supplements,
set the area where I'm going to eat with a glass, napkin, plate/fork/spoon...and everything goes
You can melt any compliant cheese on any compliant bread...or even make yourself a compliant
grilled cheese sandwich....using EVOO or ghee as your fat if you've got the time. It's a quick
assembly of two slices of bread, cheese in the middle and one flip of the bread in the frying pan.
I often defrost frozen berries the night before in a container....so they're easy to put on top
Cooked flaked quinoa is really a quick cereal to make...takes me about 90 seconds after I add
the water from start to finish. Topped with ghee and berries. FIlling...one pot to wash.
I keep nuts in the freezer so it's easy to grab a small portion to put on top of cereal if I want it.
You could always scramble tofu with a few eggs and keep it refrigerated....just warm in a pan
the next morning. Or just tofu with veggies....I cook when I have the time and re-heat when I'm
rushed for time.
There are compliant food bars if you're in a super rush and have to eat in the car. The Uni-bars
are really good....although I prefer the chocolate and chocolate for me is a black dot food.
The blueberry Uni-bar is more suitable for me.
Cream of rice cereal cooks pretty quickly once it's in the pot. So do quick cooking oats
You could also eat anything leftover from dinner....I've added leftover cooked mushrooms and
spinach to a breakfast omelette...I've eaten plain brown rice with some cooked dates and nuts.
I've eaten turkey bacon cooked but straight out of the refrigerator. I've eaten soy cheese and
rice cheese on the go...in my car with turkey bacon, and a rice cake.
The possibilities are endless.
Hope this gives you some new ideas.
Have a happy breakfast tomorrow
