All these same foodstuffs were also marketed under the premise that you’re just too damn busy to do anything but pour something from a box into a bowl and splash cow excretion all over it while your kids ran to the bus with backpacks on, your spouse hurriedly readied for work, and that zany dog of yours was trying to get the bacon strips from the table. Sure as hell isn’t my house, never was. It isn’t yours either.
But they fed it to our minds, our minds soaked it up like a fresh yellow sponge, and it too turned colors and became super-saturated with these messages.
Breakfast Then = Fast & Easy
The equation that’s launched more Type 2 Diabetes than High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Breakfast Now = Time & Design
Paleo Lifestyle Design shows you how to make this paradigm shift towards a better way.
There’s a secret to giving a Paleo Breakfast the time it deserves. Go to sleep earlier. Simple. Spend a little time on mornings, your mornings, and a little less time staying up to see if Phil Phillips won and Tweeting your friends about how great that is. It’ll be on You Tube, catch it on your time my friends.
1) Organized. Cool as Fonzie. Friendly.
2) Chaotic. Last Minute. Everybody’s bitching. I scare small children.
3) Routine. Things get done, some with angst. Family often grunts rather than talks. Everybody’s got their own focus.
4) Stumbled. WTF? Family looks at you like you’re from Mars.
5) Space. Sometimes good, Sometimes bad. Dynamic personalities.
Rather than the Norman Rockwell scenes marketers gave us, the above five bullets better describe what I would call a morning in my house. Pick one, I’m sure one of the above five exists in your house almost daily in the mornings. Family could be described as other humans in the house, pets, your iPhone…. Some of these mornings show up more than others…like, a week of 2) Chaotic. No problem planning a great breakfast for that. Keep reading…
Look at One through Five again above. That’s a Work Week. Monday through Friday. With just a little more planning than it takes to review your Facebook Timeline, you could very easily develop a menu of Paleo Breakfast feasts to not only start the day right eating Paleo, but starting the day right.
So, let’s make a handy Paleo Breakfast for each ‘morning’, anticipated or not, for the upcoming week. Looks like this:
1) Organized. BBQ anything morning.
BBQ Breakfast can’t be beat.
2) Chaotic. Tupperware morning.
It’s either a leftover, or planned meal, but it’s made to eat on the run.
3) Routine. Skillet morning.
Frittitas are your friend. You get to cut things with a knife repeatedly. Onions bow to thee…
4) Stumbled. Protein Shake morning.
You don’t want to be near anything sharp on days like this. Look no further than Max Muscle Sports Nutrition for a gzillion choices of the best tasting Protein powders you’ll ever experience. Baskin-Robbins should be shaking in its 31 boots with flavors so good…
Now, let’s take an example Work Week and put it all together…
Monday: BBQ Something…
Tuesday: Eat something in a Tupperware container…
Wednesday: Make something in a Skillet…
Thursday: Screw cooking. Make a Protein Shake…
Friday: Let out your inner Crazy Ivan…
See how easy Paleo Breakfast becomes when you look at the meal as a mood for the day? Tuesday and Thursday morning you’re not even cooking! Monday morning you’re easing into the work week as cool as Lenny Kravitz. Tuesday you’re already poised for anything that happens. Wednesday you’re on the hump, surveying the coming days, beating eggs into oblivion. Thursday’s a treat…this morning it was a Cinnamon Roll shake with 30 grams of Protein in only 130 calories. Friday is what you make it, but I tend to make muffins because they go anywhere and taste great when I have the time to eat them.
Don’t ever use the phrase “Looks like you’ve got a case of the Mondays”…its not Paleo.
