In our last post, we gave you a high-protein breakfast plan. But what if you have food sensitivities or are allergic to nuts?
I then recommend a portion of the following low glycemic/low fructose fruits with your breakfast:
And if you just can’t do a heavy meat for breakfast, then try this Fresh Salmon Omelet to get used to protein for breakfast.
1 salmon fillet (1 inch thick, about 10 ounces)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons butter, divided
6 free range eggs
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 medium tomato, optional
1/4 medium green pepper, optional
Remove the skin and bones from the salmon, and cut into 1/2-in.chunks. In a 10-in. skillet, saute the salmon, onion, and green pepper in 1 tablespoon butter. Remove and set aside.
In a small bowl, beat eggs. Melt remaining butter in same skillet over medium heat; add eggs. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath.
When the eggs are set, spoon salmon mixture over one side, then sprinkle with cheese and pepper; fold omelet over filling. Cover and let stand for 1-1/2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
After breakfast I recommend taking a 1-2 tablespoons of fish oil to further reduce the insulin response. This should ensure a tight focus until your next meal.
