Everybody knows that breakfast is important.

Especially if you are radically changing your diet, to avoid hunger and despondency, which leads to deviant food-related behaviour in the afternoon & evening...

At our house there are 3 categories of breakfasts on the Autoimmune Protocol:

  1. Planned leftovers;
  2. Emergency commuter rations; and
  3. Breakfasts that result from a morning food prep session;

Here’s what some of those look like:

Planned leftovers

Emergency commuter rations

  • I-have-no-time-to-eat-yes-you-do reheated Steak with cucumber slices (toss foil-wrapped teak in the oven while you get work-ready. Slice a whole cucumber in 14 seconds with a mandolin slicer. Fuel your commute...);
  • Salmon Nori Wrap (If you keep tinned salmon & nori at work, all you need to bring is a bin of pre-washed spinach to make your breakfast complete);
  • Reheated Victorious Offal Muffins.

Take the Assessment

At least a modicum of morning food prep required…

  • Slow cooker Pork Belly with Radish Hash;
  • Bacon & Oranges;
  • Tostada (To make tostadas bake green tortillas for another 15 minutes until crunchy, fill with ground meat and top with lettuce);
  • Root Hash with Lamb (Toss parsnips & carrots with melted coconut oil & oven bake for 45 minutes. For slow cooked lamb shanks: put them on before bed with just a few cups of bone broth & they'll be ready for breakfast or eat your hash with fresh-cooked bacon);
  • Hot Sausage with Sautéed Bok Choy (Special order AIP & low-FODMAP sausages from your butcher);
  • The Omnipotent Breakfast Fry-up. (Fry up ground meat with AIP-friendly veg & seasoning);

A rotation of 15 breakfasts is hardly necessary for AIP success, but it is important to find food you like that's do-able in real life.

Happy breakfasting!
