Hoping for some ideas, I am about to start whole30 and am struggling on what to eat for breakfast. I am allergic to eggs and that seems to eliminate a lot of options. I have googled some ideas but not many seem like easy options to have before work or are the kinds of meals I couldn't imagine eating at 5am like stuffed eggplant or various casseroles.
Thought I would ask on here if anyone has any ideas or tips
I have to get up super early and the thought of eating anything right away doesn't sit well with me. I do like Horsepoor suggests and make a coconut oil "buzzed" coffee or tea. I throw my base liquid in a pot with some coconut oil, coconut milk and ususally a bit of raw cocoa (if it is coffee) to make it like a Mocha. Or a bit of powdered vanilla bean to make a "London Fog" with tea. I Don't like just melting some coconut oil into hot liquid, because you get a mouthful of oil, and that makes me want to gag.
I do this every morning and then stop for a larger "brunch" style meal later in the morning/early afternoon. This keeps me full for a few hours at least.
Thinking of meals as 1, 2, 3 instead of "breakfast, lunch, dinner" is also useful. Especially if you are use to the more traditional sweet breakfast foods in the morning.
I usually have a few roasted sweet potatoes on hand, sliced and fried in some oil, or sprinkled with some of the "sweeter" spices are also both good breakfast options.
I also usually keep some sort of cooked protein easily available. Sausage crumbles, homemade breakfast sausage patties, shredded meat.
Nom nom paelo's Kalua pork is awesome for breakfast, crisped up in a pan on top of some sauteed veggies is awesome! http://nomnompaleo.com/post/10031990774/slow-cooker-kalua-pig
I usually crisp it up and toss it in top of some quick wok fiend caggabe with a bunch of sesame seeds, chalula hot sauce and coconut amino's.
I've been getting more into soups for breakfast as well.
Monkey bowls (discussed throughout the thread) are a good option too if you want more fruit.
Potato cakes, fish cakes, potato pancakes...you are allowed to have white potatoes on the Whole 30 so that should provide some variety, but you probably don't want to depend on them every morning.
