Meat and Nuts Breakfast Food Combination Options

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:

  • increase your productivity
  • dial in your mental focus
  • feel more sustained energy throughout the day

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.

What Is The Meat And Nuts Breakfast?

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.

So be sure you’re subscribed to that channel as well.

This will give you an insider lifestyle view of how Jessica and I Live Lean.

How Does The Meat And Nuts Breakfast Work?

The reason why the meat and nuts breakfast keeps you feeling full is because foods high in protein and healthy fat are very satiating.

These foods also raise two important neurotransmitters involved in mental focus:

  • dopamine
  • acetylcholine

To put it simply, neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that communicate information throughout your body.

They tell your lungs to breath, your stomach to digest food, and they can also affect mood, your weight, your sleep, and so much more.

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.

How To Start Eating The Meat And Nuts Breakfast

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:

  • increased energy
  • focus
  • mental clarity
  • not always feeling hungry all day

Meat and Nuts Breakfast Food Combination Options

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.

Note: if you have allergies to nuts, simply substitute avocado or a low glycemic fruit from the list above.

That’s it.

  1. I eat every morning overnight oats, I absolutely love it!!! I use steel cut
    oats (Bob’s Red Mill) black chia seeds, almond vanilla honey milk, then I
    add frozen blueberries, or frozen mango chunks. You can actually use any
    fruit as long as it’s frozen, the reason why is because it sits in the
    refrigerator over night (hence the name) and in the morning before work ill
    add more almond milk if needed and then I sprinkle cinnamon, ginger, and
    nutmeg and a very small amount of agave syrup for taste, (but not all the
    time) to the oats and then they’re good to go. You can heat them or eat
    them cold you can find recipes for overnight oats everywhere. I love them
    because I get my whole grains, antioxidants, vitamins, basically a lot of
    healthy stuff.

  2. I had , carrot, zucchini, 1/2 onion, brussil sprouts, 1/4 green pepper, and
    3 egg frittata. used about 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil to cook it with.

    bread and made a hole in the middle of it then i put it on the stove putt

  4. The winner of the cookbook (Agneiszka Dudek) asks when are you coming to
    the UK? As somebody who also lives in the UK hope that you let us know if
    you are over here.

  5. Your video editing is giving me a headache. Except to save time why do
    that? It is unnatural. Also some time you might consider looking at the
    teeth of your cat or dog. Do your teeth look like any carnivore on the
    planet? No. Humans are not designed to eat meat period. You are wrong on
    that one.

  6. I had oatmeal with one apple and some organic, salt free, sugar free peanut
    butter and a smoothie made of kale, banana and homemade fresh pear juice

  9. Bitcoin is just a blimp on a computer. You can’t hold Bitcoin. It is
    nothing and can vanish over night with a crash. I would not want to be
    holding a million in Bitcoin when the collapse comes.

  10. It is impossible for a self-proclaimed Christian to be a racist. This whole
    racist thing started with Darwin’s theory of evolution. Jesus said the
    second greatest commandment was to love your neighbor as you love yourself.
    How can you follow this commandment while thinking that you are somehow
    better than someone because of the color of your skin? This is satanic
    philosophy to want to murder someone because of the color of their skin.
    You can be a Christian or a racist. You can not be both!
