Why is Breakfast Important?
 Breaking the fast
 Sets the tone of the day
 If you start off poorly, you’ll be playing catch up all day
 It’s one of the easiest meals to make & eat at home
 Its an opportunity to start your day mindfully before the
hustle and bustle
What is a Power (Paleo) Breakfast?
 A meal that:
 Stabilizes blood sugar
 Satiates for at least 3 hours
 Increases energy
 Improves mood
 Is easily digestible (no gas or bloating)
Blood Sugar Balance
 Eat within 1st hour of waking
 Even if you exercise in the morning eat a small amount
 Skipping meals actually makes you GAIN weight
 Symptoms of blood sugar imbalance
 Metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, diabetes and pre-
diabetes, anxiety, bad mood, depression, cravings,
uncontrollable appetite, headache, weight gain, difficulty
losing weight, belly fat, etc.
Insulin = pro-inflammatory
Inflammation = dis-ease
Starting on empty?
 With adequate sleep and good health you should wake up
feeling refreshed and rejuvenated
 (without that cup of coffee!)
 Coffee may actually make blood sugar imbalance worse
 If you wake up groggy and tired you may have adrenal
 One thing that must be addressed with
adrenal fatigue is diet, making a healthy
breakfast that much more important
Adrenal Fatigue
 In brief, adrenal fatigue is the wearing out of the adrenal
 Effects cortisol, DHEA, melatonin and even sex hormones
 Reduces stress tolerance
 Can take years to develop and years to correct
 2 common causes of adrenal fatigue
 Food intolerances
 Improper food choices and ratios
Adrenal Hormones
Food intolerances
 Differences between allergies and intolerances/sensitivities
 72 hour window for intolerance
 Major source of inflammation, adrenal fatigue, digestive disturbance
 Correlated with many health issues
 Prevents absorption of nutrients
 Testing options
 150 different foods
 End point test for inflammatory mediators
 Elimination diet
Customizing Your Diet is Essential
 We all have unique dietary requirements that must be met to
fulfill our energy demands
 Best way to find this out is through a testing process called
Metabolic Typing
 We need to customize food choices as well as food ratios
 Some people must have flesh
protein with breakfast while others
do well with eggs or fruit
 Once your food choices are dialed
in, then you tailor ratios of protein,
fat & carb till it is perfect for you
What is the Paleo Diet?
 Eating how our hunter-gatherer ancestors
ate during the Paleolithic-era, 99.6% of our
evolutionary history
 2.6 million years ago till about 10,000 yrs
ago (beginning of agricultural revolution)
 Our genome is perfectly adapted to eat:
 Meats
 Vegetables
 Fruits
 Seafood
 Nuts and seeds
 Fats (ghee, coconut oil, palm oil, lard)
 Eliminates anti-nutrients:
 No grains, dairy, sugar, alcohol,
vegetable oils, soy, or legumes
Paleo Diet Pros & Cons
 Pros
 Cuts out the processed junk
 Emphasis on blood sugar balance
 Emphasis on nutrient-dense foods
 Cons
 Not individualized
 Increasing animal proteins could increase toxic burden IF
meats are not high quality (same for dirty dozen produce)
 Takes time and energy to maintain
Paleo Low Carb Granola

peanuts, and/or dried fruit to the mixture. Season with ginger,

How to: Sprout nuts in bowls in the fridge over night. Pour nuts in a
bowl and cover with purified water until there is 1 inch of water
above the top. Pour off all excess water. Pre-heat oven to 200°

the stove and pour over sprouted nut mixture. Add maple syrup,
vanilla, and spices and mix well. Spread thin over a cookie sheet
and cook in oven on 200° for 30 minutes. Stir half-way

granola is also delicious raw.
