Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m showing you how to upgrade your bacon and eggs breakfast.
Alright, I’ve done numerous episodes on why you should start the day with the meat and nuts breakfast. I learned about this protocol from Charles Poliquin.
Essentially the meat and nuts breakfast strategy is simply…
Eating a breakfast high in protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
Lets call it the PFF breakfast.
Now, the key to getting results from the PFF breakfast just like with everything Live Lean related, is consistency.
Consistency creates lifestyle habits, and lifestyle habits create life-long results.
However most people confuse consistency with the process of eating the same types of food, prepared the exact same way, everyday. If that’s your definition of consistency, you’re bound to get bored and resort back to the box of Raisin Bran.
The #1 consistency killer is boredom.
My definition of consistency is following the big picture, which in this case is a breakfast high in foods containing protein, fat, and fiber. Consistency is NOT eating the same cut of steak and the same nuts prepared the same way EVERYDAY. It’s important to have variety in our diet not only to reduce boredom, but also to get a variety of nutrients in our diet.
So with that said, never get bored of eating the same breakfast again…
The best sources of protein are those high in essential amino acids, especially the prime muscle building amino acid, Leucine.
This includes: eggs, beef, chicken, turkey, fish and seafood.
One day have beef for breakfast, another day have chicken for breakfast, etc. Simply use the leftovers from last night’s dinner and add it to your breakfast. Rather than just frying up your steak with boring spices, cook this delicious steak recipe for dinner in bulk and then enjoy it again for breakfast:
1. Stir together the following mixture and marinate a flank or skirt steak in it for 30 mins:
– Juice of 1 lemon
– Juice of 1 lime
– 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
– Dash of sea salt and black pepper
2. Add steak to high heat pan and grill/fry for 3 mins per side.
3. Top with a mixture of melted coconut oil and hot sauce.
There are many different types of nuts that all have different micronutrient properties and different flavors. It’s important to have a variety. Try pistachios, macadamias, or pine nuts. Or skip the nuts and go with other fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, or add in a few eggs. But rather doing the standard scrambled eggs, lets upgrade you to poached eggs. It’s quick, simple, and easy. Try this poached egg recipe:
1. Boil water in a pot while adding 1 tbsp of vinegar.
2. Crack shell and slowly add egg to boiling water.
3. Let egg cook for 3 minutes.
4. Remove egg with a slotted spoon and enjoy.
Or you could use a poached egg pan like this one:
If you’re sick of eating chunks of stir-fryed brocolli, make cauliflower mash. You won’t even notice the difference between this and mash potatoes, although your waistline will. Follow our simple cauliflower mash recipe on our Team Live Lean inner circle members site.
I’m not expecting you to do all this cooking in the morning.
It’s all about prepping your food in advance and storing it in your fridge for leftovers.
Preparation equals success. It may take a little more effort in the beginning, but once you see the results, it’ll become just another lifestyle habit.
