Many people like to eat sausage, bacon, and deli meats for breakfast. But keep in mind that these are still processed foods. The better sources of these items are a farmer’s market, or certain brands that use minimal ingredients, like Applegate. However, it is important to take breaks from these items. Here are a few ideas to implement while you are taking a break:
If you still want meat for breakfast, consider buying, slicing, and cooking chicken breast from scratch. This helps you to avoid added preservatives.
Remember that eggs are available as well. If you are allergic to chicken eggs, consider going to your nearest Asian market or farmer’s market and search for duck or quail eggs. You may be able to tolerate these instead.
Fresh or frozen fish is also an option for breakfast. Use in your breakfast combinations where you would normally use processed meats.
Consider nuts and seeds, which are non-animal based sources of protein. Here are some examples of how incorporate these: A smoothie with flax seeds or chia seeds; Oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts; A red apple and almond butter
Lastly, there are many people who do not need foods considered ‘protein’ sources at every meal. Breakfast can be as light as herbal tea, 1-2 pieces of fruit, or a smoothie made with just fruits, vegetables and either water or dairy-free milk.
