Now, let’s get serious and discuss what exactly to eat for breakfast in order to turn you into an irresistible chick magnet.

Breakfast patties with pesto

It’s all about protein and good fats with a healthy portion of greens for balance—the photo of the breakfast patties with a good dollop of cilantro pesto is a prime example.

Eating a proper breakfast can be a challenge when you need to dash off to work.  However, it just takes a little preparation. Well worth it as you will feel the difference, especially if you’ve been doing the bad breakfast binge of sugar-coated donuts and gooey pastries.  You see, a carbohydrate-heavy meal made of starches and sugar will cause your blood sugar to rise quickly, giving you a momentary burst of energy (enough to get you to work), and then your energy level will plummet (causing you to yawn and feel tired just as you are about to start your work day!).  So you drink more coffee and snack on more donuts to get you through til lunch.  If instead you take the time to enjoy a protein-based breakfast with healthy fats and vegetables, then life is good!  No sugar rush, no cravings, just a steady release of energy plus the necessary building blocks to elevate your testosterone, and prime those necessary neurotransmitters like dopamine (see Breakfast for Better Sex: Part I).

Ready For Your Protein Power breakfast?

Not so fast, buster! Before I share with you three yummy and easy  recipes, let’s dig deeper into that rather disturbing bit of factoid regarding corn flakes cereal and libido, as mentioned in Breakfast for Better Sex: Part I.
There was actually a real person named John Harvey Kellog, who was convinced extraneous sex, beyond the duty of procreation, was a grave distraction to religious pursuits.  Kellog worked at Battle Creek Sanitarium. He spent most of his time researching ways to dampen sexual urges and advocating a low protein, very high fiber diet, and daily enemas.  In fact, one of his favorite devices was an enema machine that pumped gallons of water through a pipe connected to your…OK, who has time to even think about sex when your bowels are being flooded?  So, corn flakes came into being as a breakfast staple because Kellog felt that a bland, fibrous, cardboard-like substance lacking adequate protein and fat would dampen sex drive.  And adding insult to injury, the corn used in corn flakes today are from genetically modified corn, and also coated with BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) which is known to cause allergies and may be carcinogenic.
If that’s still not convincing you to ditch the cereal, take a look at this video (second video on the linked page) by Dr. Thomas Levy and you can decide for yourself.

Hope you get the hint by now that cereal is not a proper breakfast! For those who only have time to toss things in a blender, this first recipe is your panacea.

Breakfast for Better Sex: Recipes

Protein Power Breakfast #1: Avocado Smoothie

High Protein Smoothie with Avocado & Cocoa

High Protein Smoothie with Avocado & Cocoa

 

This is so easy to make,  but go the extra mile and fork up a few extra bucks for a high quality protein powder.  And do not use anything made from soy protein isolates!
Unfermented soy products are anaphrodisiacs, which means that it is hazardous to your virility.  If you want to know more about anaphrodisiacs  AND aphrodisiacs, download my free eBook HERE.

  • 1 portion protein powder (organic whey, hemp, and pea protein are good choices)
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 tsp. cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp. tahini or almond butter
  • OR a handful of raw nuts such as walnuts, pecans, or almonds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 6–8 oz. filtered water
  • Pinch of sea salt

Toss everything in a blender and let it whirl until smooth.

This is a very versatile recipe.  Feel free to substitute the avocado for cooked sweet potato, a pear, or fresh berries.  But stay away from high sugar fruits such as mangoes, bananas, and pineapples.

Protein Power Breakfast #2:  Frittata

Great to make in advance.  Only requires one pan.

a healthy breakfast for better sex: breakfast frittata

Breakfast Frittata with Zucchini

  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or coconut oil
  • 2 medium zucchinis, chopped
  • ½ medium onion, sliced
  • 10–12 olives, pitted, and chopped
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, optional
zucchini, onions, olives

Chopped zucchini, onion, olives

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat a 10″ cast-iron skillet until medium hot.  Add in the butter, or coconut oil; then the cut zucchini, onion, and olives.  Sautee for about 5 minutes, then add in the dried thyme and season with salt & pepper.  Remove from heat.  Crack the eggs into a large bowl, and whisk vigorously with a fork for a couple of minutes.  Add in a pinch of salt.  Pour the whipped eggs into the skillet and mix with the veggies. (Add in cheese if you are using it).
Place in the oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.  This makes 4 – 6 servings.
Leftover frittata makes a great snack or a few more breakfasts. Try it topped with guacamole or the Cilantro Pesto (next recipe).
Note: If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, get one.  But for those of you who don’t have one yet, you can sautee the veggies in a regular pan, then transfer the egg + veggie mixture into a well-greased pyrex dish and bake the frittata in the oven.

Protein Power Breakfast #3: Breakfast patties
or sausages with Cilantro Pesto

This pesto is rich, and packed with antioxidants, along with vitamins and minerals.
If you happen to dislike cilantro, you can use basil.  Feel free to add in parsley or arugula too.
You can serve this with just about with anything. However it does require some prepping so be sure to soak the pecans the night before.

  • Get a good quality sausage from your local butcher or an organic produce store.  Some are already pre-cooked, so it only takes a few minutes to re-heat in a pan.
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup pecans, whole & raw, soaked in water for 4 – 5 hours
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste

Drain the nuts, and place in a food processor and pulse a few times until they are coarsely ground.  Add in the rest of the ingredients and process until a pesto consistency is reached. Taste for flavor and adjust with a little more lemon juice, olive oil, or salt & pepper if necessary.


Remember, if you want to indulge in romping romance when the sun goes down, the secret is to chow down on a hardy, protein-based breakfast in the morning.
