Brad, thanks for joining in. How would you rate that breakfast?

John,

I know.... my breakfast menu often has plenty of room for improvement.

The plan is to wake up and get some veggies, protein and "good" fat, any way I can and as fast as I can. The pork rinds are an old habit, harder to kick than nicotine.

Years of drinking cheap alcohol trained me to down just about anything, so veggie shakes with odd stuff really don't bother me. Also, Whole Foods sells pre-made veggie shakes, pretty low sugar and lots of pulp.

Tomorrow some left over grass-fed beef, mango slices, and fish oil are on the menu. More paleo/zone probably!

Brad

yesterdays rating: it works, but not every day

Default 5/23

1 can solid albacore mashed in with 1 whole avacado and some Old Bay.
I apple, of course.
The usual supps (5 fish oil caps, one multi, one Mg), plus the new Cod Liver Oil, 2 teaspoons.

Rating: Fat-tastic!

Brad, I dig pork rinds sometimes. Though I dunno if I'd eat them just after waking up... a little salty for 7:45am. But really, if you're drinking or whatever, and you crave salty snack food, the protein and fat of a pork rind I'll take over corn or potato chip anytime.

-More leftover steak from this weekend
-Grapes
-Yogurt
-Blueberries
-The sad fact that the coffee (dark water) from the machine now tastes OK to me

Rating: Very Satisfying.

Brad: Nothing to be ashamed about. Plus I'm not one to criticize anyway...There was a time not too long ago where I would have ice cream and multiple cigarettes for breakfast, if anything at all.

"1 can solid albacore mashed in with 1 whole avacado"

That actually sounds pretty good... So you substitute in avocado, instead of mayo, to make a tuna salad-like meal? Very cool!!
