for the past six months I have been doing intermittent fasting and have actually been more productive and feel better by pushing out breaking my daily fast until after 2pm. I only eat now between 2 pm and 10pm and do a full 24 hour fast on a Sunday. I do have a bulletproof-type coffee in the morning
Without wishing to derail the thread, I'd like to echo these thoughts on IF.
What are you putting in your Bulletproof Coffee ?
Grass Fed Butter, MCT Oil ?
I use approx 15ml of heavy cream and 1 tsp of Coconut Oil in my coffee, and it gets me thru to 1pm easily.
Anyhow, back on topic...
If I was going for Carb based breakfast...
- Rolled Oats with blueberries and 1 segment of Lindt 85% chocolate, and Stevia to taste.
Cook oats in water, then add some milk after cooking.
If I was going for Protein/Fat based breakfast....
- 3 or 4 eggs either scrambled or fried, with mushrooms and tomato sautéed in butter.
Perhaps a small splash of Olive Oil after cooking.
1 slice of heavy grain bread to lap up all those juices left on the plate at completion !
I just use unsalted butter, coconut oil, cinnamon and pinch of salt in my BC. People who have never tasted it are surprised by how good it actually tastes. This is my goto "breakfast" now, without actually breaking my fast.
Your two choices for a real brekky are basically the same as mine!
Porridge made with whole milk, knob of butter and a pinch of salt on the stove. Add cranberries, dried sour cherries, dried blueberries, golden fruit, goji berries, dried apricots and dried ginger afterwards. Maybe a sprinkle of rapadura on top.
With eggs and bacon you can never go wrong.
