On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my tips on how to make ridiculously healthy breakfasts, including different meat and nuts breakfast food combinations.
Before we get into it, in the comments below, let me know what you had for your first meal this morning.
I’ll post what I had for breakfast, as well.
Are you ready to:
Regardless of if you call it breakfast or meal number 1, or what time of day you eat it, the first thing you eat during the day plays a huge role in dictating how you’ll feel and perform physically and mentally throughout the day.
In other words, the foods you eat for breakfast can set you up to feel high levels of sustained energy, like an olympic athlete, or energy dips and crashes like a rollercoaster.
These foods can also keep you mentally dialed in and focused throughout the day like a productive Fortune 500 CEO, or like one of those scatter-brained 5 year old kids on a sugar high.
When it comes to breakfast, what has worked best for me, and many other athletes, entrepreneurs, and 9-5 office workers, is a breakfast high in protein and fat, and low in blood sugar spiking carbohydrates.
I first read about this style of breakfast called the “meat and nuts breakfast” from strength coach Charles Poliquin.
The meat and nuts breakfast was coach Poliquin’s best tip for achieving optimal lean body composition.
I began incorporating the meat and nuts breakfast into my diet back in 2012.
Before this, I usually followed the typical bodybuilder breakfast of oats and egg whites.
This breakfast always left me feeling even more hungry, and I found my energy levels were lower throughout the day.
Since incorporating the meat and nuts breakfast, I’ve personally found it helps me stay focused, has increased my productivity, has helped provide me with sustained energy, and keeps me feeling full up all the way up until the late afternoon.
On one of my daily vlogs over at BradGouthroTV, I showed you how I made my meat and nuts breakfast in just 7 minutes.
These daily vlogs include clips of our workouts and the foods we eat daily.

These foods also raise two important neurotransmitters involved in mental focus:
To put it simply, neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that communicate information throughout your body.
In addition to keeping you full, the energy boosting meat and nuts breakfast provides protein and healthy fats to allow your blood sugar to steadily rise and remain balanced.
This is the opposite of the quick rise and drop that occurs after eating a typical bowl of cereal.
If eating meat and nuts for breakfast sounds weird to you, start on a Saturday when you’re not as rushed in the morning.
I’m telling you, you’ll love the feeling of:
To help you out, here is a table of numerous foods that you can simply combine to create a new meat and nuts breakfast everyday.
This means you can rotate different meat and nut variations every day, to avoid boredom and decrease potential food sensitivities.
