Hello to all Paleo ninjas/enthusiasts/wannabes/has-beens/never-beens and almost-theres…
I’m excited to share this breakfast idea with you because, as we know, it is THE most important meal of the day, especially if you’re up before the crack of dawn to get down to Crossfit-U for some morning ass-whipping. I’ve posted before on how much I love my green smoothies for breakfast, but since it’s been cold and dark I’ve been craving warm, comforting food. I used to be a porridge addict, but as I’ve been avoiding grains (a habit that’s stuck since the Paleo Challenge), brekkie usually results in a simple fry-up of tomato, eggs and spinach topped with avocado, salt, pepper and paprika, a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. So good.
But one challenge I’ve had to face is what to eat after a morning Crossfit session. I go straight to work after training, and while there are plenty of cafes around (this is Melbourne, after all), the take-away options are usually carb-heavy rolls, toasties or sweet muffins. And if you sit down, they’ll charge you at least $16 for a fancy-ish plate of eggs, bacon and avocado (seriously folks, I don’t care how organic you claim your food is, it’s a bloody rip, and I can make it myself, thank you).
So I started playing around with my chia pudding recipe, until I came up with something that’s nutritious, protein-rich, filling, tasty AND easily transportable without the risk of spillage. I call it the SUPERCHARGED PALEO BREKKIE-TO-GO. [Read more…]
