I've been doing yogurt since I got pregnant in the morning. Because of blood sugar issues, before that I did meat in the morning (usually a soup, sometimes hot dog--natura lof course). With morning sickness, I switched to yogurt even though I don't really do well on it. After a few months, my blood sugar somewhat adjusted to it, but I'm having some congestion issues and ds, 6 mos, seem to not do so well mid-morning (spitting up a lot) after I have yogurt. He's also had persistent phlegmy coughing (mild), constipation, some skin rashes (mild).<br><br>
I'm hesitant to start eating meat in the morning again. It seemed that it made me constipated. Before getting pregnant, amd meanwhile, that was a major problem for me, however I'm not absolutely sure it was because of the meat.<br>
I feel like I need something easily digested, yet with a good amount of proein. What do you all eat? No dairy or nuts.

How about eggs? There are literally dozens of ways to make them. Sometimes I make them ahead of time and eat them cold (custard, egg muffins, fritatta, etc.), and sometimes I cook them that morning so that they're warm (omelette, scrambled, poached, etc.).<br><br>
If you're having constipation issues, I would recommend increasing your fat intake. Too much lean meat can have that effect on some people, but choosing fattier cuts or adding fat can really help move things along.<br><br>
Lately my breakfasts have been corned beef hash with eggs. I pre-cook the beef and potatoes, chop them and toss them in the fridge, in the morning it's simple to toss them in a pan to heat them, and add an egg. It's got a good balance of protein and fat for me to get through until lunch.<br><br>

My favorite is eggs (scrambled, but if you like them some other way, that would work just as well) with salsa, refried beans, and some avocado. Plenty of fat in that meal, which is what I need. Some good protein, too. Of course, some people don't find beans easily digested. I find that if I soak them long and warm, and then cook them well, I do fine. When I don't eat the beans with my eggs, I have a coconut flour muffin. It doesn't hold me as well, though.

What about oatmeal w/ lots of coconut oil and butter?<br><br>
I do better eating lunch items for breakfast, and breakfast items for lunch. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/upsidedown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="upsidedown"><br><br>
My natural tendency is to eat NOTHING, but this shuts down my metabolism.<br><br>
I feel better when I have a banana and a glass of water, 1st thing and then something else a little later.<br><br>
Try to write down what you ate and how you feel later, because this helps you figure out what is best for you.

Eggs scrambled in stir-fried cabbage is my current breakfast of choice (or maybe I should say necessity since I am craving carbs but trying to stay away)

What I like is natural sausage and cooked greens (kale, dandelion wth garlic, onions, and fat) I eat a lot of meat and eating a pile of greens with it seems to keep things moving <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Hi, I like to read this forum, but don't usually have time to post, so this is my first go. Why not try something fermented, or plain stock? I definitely remember reading in NT that years ago, fermented foods were always included in breakfast, specifically because they are easily digestible after sleeping all night, and I would think fiber rich if we're talking saurkraut, or pickled beets, etc. In terms of something higher in protein but also easily digestible, how about plain stock. It is full of gelatin if made well so very digestible, and yummy to have in a cup with your meal (or by itself if you're not very hungry). My kids and I personally enjoy a cup of homemade warmed stock in the morning or midmorning. Hope you find something! Sande
