All the hunters out there - what is your typical breakfast?

I'm struggling to get variety every morning. Before starting this GTD I would to eat alot of poached eggs on brown bread or baked beans on toast, porridge/museli. I'm now trying to find a breakfast that doesn't include bread or oats, but good protein.

I know this may sound odd, it does to me, but does anyone have fish or steak for breakfast?  I know the Japanese seem to eat fish in the morning.

I would love to hear protien ideas and I do alot of weight training.

I will have quinoa with a tbsp of raisins, 1 tsp ground flax and 1/4 cup chopped almonds or a spinach salad or an omelet (two eggs and five spears of asparagus and onions, leftovers from dinner (steak, chicken, fish). I usually have the grains like the quinoa or oats when I crave something sweet that day along with chopped pear, banana or raisins with nuts. I will also top it with almond butter at times. When I was off track I had a difficult time getting ideas for meals (that's me though). I am starting to write down meals and recipes I have to have close at hand when this happens.

My first meal at lunch always contains animal protein. Before then I usually have my fruit for the day and then later some kind of snack that is either vegetable or meat.

my first meal, which happens to be not too early, ()is mostly a generous slushy smoothie containing my beneficial fruits......to that I add ground linseed, chia seeds, harmonia and ara 6.....I may add a cap of minerals and vitamins and a live cell, even a polyflora and a small scoop of protein powder .....in other words.....a nutritious bomb!!! ;D


that s when I get in my servings of fruit, needs no sweetener what so ever and gives me the necessary fiber for the day to keep me regular.

late afternoon, I ll feel like having another nutritious bomb, consisting of veggies and protein, basically.....(have no problem adding my carbs in the form of whole grains or root veggies to that) but I won t bore you with that one, cause it sure is quite a creation!!!! :)

Most commonly two eggs scrambled with veggies or two over easy with a slice of spelt toast. Sometimes leftovers. I have eaten everything for breakfast that I could have for dinner. Leftovers are a great option, including fish. Sometimes I will add a few cubes of leftover chicken, lamb and beef to my eggs or saute an onion and maybe spinach, add cubes of meat and have a mini stir fry.

I find a protein shake usually isn't enough for me. I start with a nice helping of fresh fruit before moving onto the eggs or leftovers between 30 minutes to one hour after fruit. I workout most mornings and am hungry again as soon as lunch time arrives.

Hmmm, some lovely ideas there  ;D... I'm hungry already... lol

Regarding the protein shakes... As we can't have whey, are you using Dr D'Adamo's creation or others such as hemp, rice, pea, egg ?

I've always been a big fan of eggs and toast for breakfast.  Cereal was always for when I had no energy to cook...

I consider myself a hunter, though untested as such.  I'm type O, and ADD ('Hunter in a Farmer's world' - Thom Hartmann).

Anyway, since I'm limited to a low number of eggs a week, I have 1 egg and 1-2 turkey 'sausage(s).'  The sausages are small, only ~18g each.  With that I have 1 lightly toasted Ezekiel bread.

Sometimes I'll have just a turkey or beef burger.  This morning I had it with left-over broccoli.   :)

Regarding the protein shakes.


if you can find clean protein shake powders in your country, meaning they have no added junk in the mix.....go for it!

Lola - when you mean clean, do you mean lactose and gluten free?

I would guess that by "clean", she means avoid free for you...

I usually eat egg whites and veggies with a little meat. I am trying to be more creative myself and reading this thread as given me some options.

I workout in the am, typically so grains or fruit only do not satisfy me. Seems the only thing that does is veggies/meat/fish.

Yes, I use Dr. D's protein shake and add a banana and sometimes blueberries and pineapple also.
