The biggest challenge many of us face is feeling confused what to eat for a healthy breakfast. Many others think they are eating “healthily” but, in reality, they consume breakfasts that are so full of sugar that they might as well be called “morning desserts.”

We grew up with the belief that a good breakfast should contain large amounts of fruit, flavored yogurt, grains, cereals, bars and oat meal.

Here is the problem: they are full of carbohydrates and sugars.

Tip: Eat A PFF Breakfast

PFF stands for “Protein, Fat and Fiber.”

Yes, this means we will be loading up our breakfasts with protein, fat and fiber. Why?

Because they will guarantee us no sugar dips, they will sustain our sugar levels so we don't exhaust our adrenals and they will help us break our sugar habit (or addiction).

Proteins are also full of amino acids which are the building blocks on our hormones.

The sources of proteins in your breakfast could come from fish, beef, chicken, bison, lamb, tempeh (if you can tolerate soy), coconut butter but also from moderate amounts of pre-soaked nuts and seeds, if tolerated.

Here is more information about healthy breakfasts that rebalance your hormones.

    I am a lacto vegetarian. NO MEAT! FISH! EGGS OR POULTRY

    All this sounds good to me. My husband does not like avacado. Is there a good substitute for that ?
    He eats salads for lunch with chicken and has done so for the past 3 months trying to lose weight. So he is willing to try things.
    He does not like Sourkraut, so I will try the fermented cauliflower. I love Sourkraut and pickles too ! But have to be careful with the Kraut so I don’t have loose bowels. Will try the cauliflower with my husband.

    Thanks for the recipe.

      Nuts are another good source of healthy fats, as is grass fed butter. Perhaps he’d like a good bulletproof latte to go with his breakfast!

    Dear Magdalena. Your quite unique breakfast idea sounds very appealing and I will definitely try the new approach of adding more fermented foods to my diet. Btw, I love krauts and pickles. Thank you for your teachings.
