My Easy Slow Carb Breakfast recipe was very popular… well, obviously it was, it had sausage and runny eggs!
This breakfast is a bit more of a store cupboard “shit! I’ve not made breakfast and I’m heading to bed” recipe, and it sounds fucking awful. In fact I totally expected to be repeating Tim’s slow carb mantra “food is just fuel, food is just fuel, food is just fuel” whilst I forced it down my throat.
The plus side, is that you can make 5 days worth in under 3 minutes, and then fill the fridge with portions in tuperware, ready to grab as you run out the door.
I was expecting that by day 3, the tomatos would be disgusting, and the avocado a strange brown colour, and of course, everything lost it’s liquid and would congeal in the bottom of the tuperware.
I was pleasantly surprised though. I’ve just eaten my “day 3” portion, and it’s not just tolerable, it’s actually pretty nice.
- 2 Tins Tuna or Salmon
- 2 Tins Lentils
- 6 Chunky Diced Tomatos
- 2 Chunky Diced Avocados
Seriously? You think there’s a method to this? Chop it up, portion it out. Job’s done.
Let me know if you try it, I promise it’s not bad at all.
I started a new job last week, which necessitates the formation of new habits. Changes in circumstance like this provide a fantastic opportunity to piggyback habit formation on top of those that will be created naturally. So now I’m back on Slow Carb 🙂
I found after a few days that not breakfasting was causing me issues. Please take a moment to pray for the innocent pack of cashew nuts that was callously destroyed. Oops.
My previous success on Slow Carb was accomplished despite mostly shunning carbs, but now I feel that I need them particularly in the mornings.
Raiding the cupboards one evening to try to put together a pre-prepared breakfast led to a rather nice discovery…
This should make enough for 5 breakfasts. Make it on a sunday night, shouldn’t take more than 30 mins tops!
- 6 97% Pork Sausages, chopped or “meatballed”
- 2 tins Kidney Beans
- 10 Poached Eggs
- 2 Chopped Avocados
- Virgin Avocado Oil
Fry the sausages in a little oil. I prefer to pinch them out of the skins to make little meatballs, it’s just as easy as chopping them and the texture is much nicer.
Meanwhile poach some eggs. Make sure you cool them in some iced or running water to halt the cooking process.
Divide the cooked ingredients evenly into tupperware containers, with the poached eggs on top. Drizzle a little avocado oil over the eggs for a little extra punch. Chuck the containers in your fridge, they’ll happily keep all week.
If you find you’re a little short on sausage (ooer), consider buying several packs, frying them off and freezing them. 18 sausages spread over 2 weeks would obviously increase your sausage quota by 50%.
