    I’m starting Phase 1 AGAIN!… I live where the temperature is a balmy 10 degrees in the mornings and drinking a cold smoothy just doesn’t sit well. I’m looking for some recipes that don’t necessarily contain eggs, but have good protein. Any suggestions?

    Laurie,

    Yes I know what you mean, protein shakes/smoothies are not the most exciting idea on cold days. You can re-think traditional breakfast ideas, and opt for some leftover meat and add some vegetables and an egg if desired. Often times I will just re-heat leftover steak, chicken etc in a skillet along with some vegetables, coconut oil and scramble it with an egg. You don’t even need to add an egg if you don’t desire. Also consider Greek yogurt as a good option with a little fruit and chopped nuts. However the main thing is that “traditional” breakfasts can be restructured and instead reheat a bowl of soup/chili etc. On a very cold morning this might be just what you actually want anyway! I have also added some vanilla protein powder to a cup of coffee (just whisk very well!), you could even put this in a blender and you have a more tasty cup of coffee.

    I hope this helps, let me know if you need additional ideas!

    Happy New Year

    Jess
