Eating Paleo Diet
Posted 30 April 2007 - 12:14 PM
I wanted to know if there is any type of protien drink that I could use for breakfast. I was not sure if that was even possible since I have eliminated almost everything they are made from out of my diet. If this isn't a choice, what do you recommend for breakfast? I usually eat lost of fruit, but wanted more protien without actually having to cook a form of protien early in the morning.
My friend is using the Nature's Plus Spiru-terin chocolate protien drink. He also uses lactose free milk. I called and this is gluten free, but obviously is made with soy. What is non-GMO soy(non-genetically modified)? Is this any worse or better? I am not sure I want to even take a risk of trying this. He loves it though....but obviously his guts are more forgivng than mine.
I would like any suggestions. I also wanted to share one of my favorite chicken salads I have been eating lately. I love it and is very filling yet not too heavy.
Green spinach leafs
cubed grilled chicken (season to liking)
sliced apples into small pieces
Newman's Own ceasear dressing.

I usually crack 3 med eggs on a skillet in the morning while I am fixing my lunch. Flip and then eat. It really only takes about 5 min. My husband cannot get up in enough time to cook in the am, so he usually eats sliced ham or left over chicken (I personally cannot stomach chicken that early)
There are some people who just have trouble stomach food in the am. If a shake is the only option, then egg white protien powder with fruit blended would be the next best thing. There is a brand called Now available at Whole Foods that is good. It doesn't have a taste really, so it will go with whatever you put in it. (I use it post work-out with dextrose and cocoa)

It's hard to stay paleo unless you want to consume uncooked or powdered eggs in a smoothie. To me, cleaning up the blender is more work than microwaving a sausage.

As for the sausages, Super Target carries a brand-I think it is Apple Farms (I will double check when I get home) that is fully cooked, gluten-free and soy free. They make breakfast links that are smaller and larger sausage and I eat a lot of those.
I learned awhile back-it only takes me about 30 min. to get dressed in the morning, but I need an hour so I can prepare my breakfast and food for the day.

1 can organic prepared beans (ingredients: beans, salt, water)
1/2 avocado (optional)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
few shakes dried thyme
few shakes dried sage
about 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
optional: about 5 tablespoons gluten free vinegar (balsamic or regular)
Throw it all into the blender or chopper and chop until the consistency of peanut butter (smoothy or crunchy)
That's it. Enjoy. You can leave out the avocado if you don't like them. You can also add about a tablespoon of chopped onion if you like.
If you are really adventerous....add about 7 roasted almonds to the mix.
