      • Diana has a whole chapter on breakfast foods in Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go
      • Get up five minutes earlier, scramble some eggs
      • Make a double batch of sausage with some meat and herbs/spices and you have meat for breakfast ready to go for the week
      • On days where you have a little bit more time, make a big batch and use the leftovers throughout the week (i.e. pancakes)
      • Every weekend Stacy and Matt make a batch of soup and Stacy has that daily
      • Other make ahead meals: egg muffins, frittata, poached eggs, porridge, grain-free granola, bars, muffins
    • (27:00) Jane – What breakfast dish is quick, easy and satisfying enough to keep hunger at bay until lunch time? Is BulletProof coffee recommended?
      • Diana suggests eating more food, try more eggs – and a cup of coffee shouldn’t be a problem
      • Diana finds that fruit stimulates hunger, be careful with the fruit intake in the morning
      • Stacy finds that vegetables are key to feeling satiated through the morning
      • Don’t use coffee to fill a nutrient void
      • It is safe to consume that much fat in your coffee, but if you are lactose intolerant your body will not handle lactose – try ghee with your coconut oil (try the Pure Indian Foods brand)
      • Learn to understand your hunger cues and eat when you are hungry
    • (40:57) Anne – What foods/meals can I suggest to those who will be dropping off meals once our baby is born?
      • Diana suggests sending recipes for ideas – link to blog posts, send pins
      • Or keep it really simple with rotisserie chicken, plain mashed potatoes, basic vegetable dishes
      • Don’t be afraid to speak up about your intolerances, even to handle via email while expressing your gratitude, most the time people just need a little bit of education – or ask the organizer for feedback on how the group would respond to the unique situation
      • Select recipes that are basic and don’t require a lot of hard to find ingredients
      • Make sure they are affordable and easy to put together
      • Everyone could chip in for a paleo on the go meal service like Pete’s Paleo
    • (53:37) Jan – what kind of binders can be used to hold turkey burgers together? What do you recommend for seasonings?
      • Try some other burger recipes, like 50/50 burgers or Citrus Pork burgers from Beyond Bacon, and recipes focused around red meat
      • Try seasoning with horseradish, cumin, tarragon, sage
      • Check out the Flavor Bible
      • Nom Nom Paleo also has an abundance of seasoning recipes
      • Chicken and turkey are high in omega 6’s, so you want to watch your intake – try to stick to four legged animals
      • Eggs and almond flour can be used for binding, but a fatty cut of meat will do the trick
      • Use squashes to replace pasta, and cauliflower to replace rice
    • (1:06:28) Patrick – how do you afford eating paleo? How do you set a budget?
      • Rethink how you buy food, get a chest freezer and buy meat in bulk
      • There are tricks and way to get more bang for your buck, you just have to know your priorities and be willing to invest the time and energy into planning out your meals and research your prices
      • Check out the Paleo Parents post on ‘how to keep your paleo family out of the poorhouse
      • Organ meats and broth are more affordable and incredibly nutrient dense
      • Focus on cheaper produce, it is a great way to fill space in bellies
      • Buy from local farmers, buy in season, buy in bulk
      • Do the best you can, you don’t have to do only grassfed and organic
