This diet has been great for me. I feel so much better and haven't had the big D for over a week. What a nice change.I also went out of town and didn't have to stop to find bathrooms. I could actually enjoy the trip.

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)
crasins
sliced apples into small pieces
Newman's Own ceasear dressing.

I don't know exactly what you are allowed on the Paleo diet, but I can't have any dairy or soy so I've been making a protein smoothie with powdered egg whites (Bob's Red Mill has some, and I found another brand at Whole Foods), a little nut butter (almond currently), a little stevia, a tiny bit of frozen fruit (usually something like peaches), and ice cubes.

The premise of the paleo diet is whole foods the majority of the time, with the exception of recovery drinks for endurance athletes. It also limits soy and dairy.

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)

How about buying some good sausages and just microwaving one in the morning? Hardly counts as cooking. I get some from Trader Joe's, chicken/turkey/garlic sausage. Short and sweet ingredient list.

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.

I often eat poached eggs over sauteed greens or asparagus. You could blanch some asparagus and sautee it off with some onion or garlic or something, then refer it; AND boil some eggs. Cooked bacon (gluten-free obviously and uncured) tastes good cold the next day as well. That might work for not having to cook in the a.m.

Thanks for all the good suggestions. I think I might need to get up a little earlier or make my breakfast the night before.

I notice that the fewer grains (of any kind) I eat, the better I feel--I don't do a strick paleo diet, but I kinda follow it. For breakfast, I hard boil about a dozen eggs on the weekend, then during the week, I grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and a handful of cherry tomatoes for a super quick, no fuss breakfast. I also sometimes eat a handful of mixed nuts, and a handful of raisins or dried cherries for breakfast. I am always on the run! In the kosher foods section of your grocery store, you can sometimes find macaroons made with no flour--yum! That's as close to a paleo dessert as I can come. Or, nuts drizzled with honey would be paleo, too, right?

Yes, nuts and honey are Paleo. I am not the biggest honey fan, so I use agave necter alot. YUMMY.

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.

It takes me 45 minutes in the winter to make my brekkers -- I have to have potato or something like that to fill me up and keep me warm in the cold months. The trick for me is, then I have to do the doodles...but it's time to leave for school. ARG - I hate morning classes!

This quarter I have a class called "walking" (i go to a hippy college) and once a week we go on three hour walks. Not a good scenario for finding that one needs a facility. Maybe I should've gone with accounting or something. :D

Can you eat beans? Try this yummy dip rolled up in lettuce leaves or eaten right out of the bowl with a spoon:

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.

Enjoy!
