Yes, every now and then I crave a piece of slightly burnt toast. Made in the form of some type of sandwich. Lately I've been kicking my ass in the gym and it gets me real hungry. The moment I just typed that I smiled and thought of Jim Carey in Liar Liar. I really really enjoyed that movie (especially when he's kicking his own ass. Here are a few takes for your enjoyment). So this morning I had a little sandwich as my breakfast. Toast with some avocado, scallion and thinly sliced left over flank steak (from my camping trip)
This is the bread I use when the urge hits me. It's a millet flour and flax bread;
Maybe you can make out the ingredients
How easy it is to throw together a quick lunch;

Like I said in the previous post, it's been busy.
When you're really busy, it's great to have IF in your bag of tricks. (I hope you've checked it out by now but if not, here's you're best starting point )
I will re-iterate the following; do not break your fast with whatever you feel like eating. It's easy to slip and fall into a large bowl of pasta or similar when you're hungry and you're in the mood to really chow down. After about a 26 hour fast, I had a good hunt and this is what I ate ;-)
(ate over a 2 hour period)
Grilled Marinated shrimp;
white wine, garlic, basil, cherry bomb pepper, onion, evoo.

This was delicious;
In some coconut oil, saute a few pieces of spicy pepper. I used pepperonata. Then add ground turkey. When close to done, I added 3 shrimps a couple leaves of fresh basil and a few little pieces of tomato. Then a dash of white wine to cook it all down.
This paired with a nice cucumber salad with spring onions, both fresh from the farmers market. Splashed with evoo and fresh ground pepper.
It made for a very tasty breakfast on a Saturday morning around 10:00

One thing that struck me from the beginning was Art Devany's emphasis on "color with in your meals". So when I started changing the way I ate and exercised I tried to incorporate this simple concept. It really doesn't get mentioned a whole lot on all the EF/Paleo blogs, but if you focus on color, you'll be guaranteed to eat a variety of real foods.
So here's a colorful breakfast;
Blueberries, watermelon, meatballs, tomato, celery, slice of red pepper and 3 slices of german "gelb wurst".
I have not said it in a while...so here we go again; SMILE A LOT TODAY!
