Breakfasts | Seriously Stoneage


Most people seem to rely heavily on grains to provide the basis for most of their meals, especially breakfast (i.e. cereal, toast etc.) and believe that this is the only way to fill you up and sustain you through the morning. In fact, our love affair with carbohydrates causes most to declare “I couldn’t live without bread/ porridge/pasta/rice” but I have found that plenty of protein along with some veg does the trick, and the body and brain soon adjusts to the new regime. Good old egg and bacon (treat yourself to good bacon, not that thin stuff that ‘leaks’), kippers and poached eggs, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, an omelette or a piece of fish are my usual fare, combined with mushrooms, tomatoes, onions or even leftover veg from the night before (e.g. sweet potato and broccoli make a nice ‘bubble and squeak’).

If you’re not quite up to cooked food first thing, then another option is the fruit route – a lovely fresh fruit salad of whatever you’ve got in the bowl perhaps with a few berries and nuts and seeds sprinkled over will put a spring in your step. You could even make this the night before and pour some apple juice over it so that it goes all slurpy. Or whizz it all up to make a smoothie.
