What Strongmen Eat for Breakfast | 4x WSM Brian Shaw’s Morning Meal

November 10, 2019 100 By William Morgan


what’s up muscle and strength this is
four-time world Strongest Man Brian Shaw
and we are going to cook some breakfast
first thing I do is I kind of set
everything out I like to have it all
ready when I start the cooking process
so the first thing we got here is just
some grass-fed butter kind of just coat
the pan with that and then use it mainly
to cook cook the spinach in I want the
the the fat from the butter just go with
the butter no cooking spray at all for
me and then as far as this is just some
organic baby spinach so I just kind of
essentially make an omelet you know it’s
not exactly an omelet but throw the
spinach in first and let that cook
normally just kind of do a handful it’s
crazy how spinach cooks down when you
when you start cooking it it looks like
oh man the pans fairly full and it’ll
it’ll cook down to almost nothing get it
all kind of coated in the butter here
I’ve already got the rice set and cooked
sometimes I’ll actually have two
different rice makers and I’ll set it on
a time delay so I’ve always got always
got fresh rice I never never reheat the
rice I like to just have it fresh so
every meal that I have rice with which
is basically almost every one of my
meals I have fresh rice for that once
that’s cooked down then we throw the
eggs in here so with the eggs and I will
do I’ll do eight whole eggs with this
yeah so we got eight eggs in next
ingredient here will just be cheddar
cheese so I just take one slice of
cheese here and then I just break it up
into pieces
you just kind of throw it in
and then I did I just Scrabble it from
there really with eating a lot of eggs
it’s uh that I think I think is
important that they’re trying to eat
them in a big quantity is not to not to
overcook the eggs so overcooked eggs are
much harder to eat then eggs that are a
little bit softer and have more moisture
in them so I always always try my best
when I’m cooking this to not not
overcook it just kind of leave it a
little bit softer so it’s just easier
for me to get down and then what I do is
grab a bowl here and then just throw
these eggs into that bowl yeah perfect
so now we’ve got we’ve got the eggs done
what I’ll do is I’ll go over here and
get get some rice next so as I said this
is all already cooked normally I’ll cook
like two to three cups of rice something
like that of dry rice and then I can
typically get at least two meals out of
it maybe three you know depending on how
much rice I’m eating and then I’ll start
a fresh batch and go with that or like I
said I’ll have two rice makers set up
that all just time delay the second one
so it starts cooking you know maybe
three hours after my last meal so that I
can eat and have rice ready at all times
so what I’ll do is at this point I mean
I’ve kind of know how much a cup is so
right about like that is about a cup of
rice so I’ll do that and then do another one here
so typically with this I’ll have you
know kind of roughly between two two and
a half cups of rice and then I just grab
uh grab a spoon and then I’ll normally
don’t just mix it up altogether so for
me for a number of years I would
actually consume and you may have seen
videos out there of me eating a large
quantity of oatmeal and eggs for
breakfast and I did that for years and
the oatmeal for me was a lot harder to
digest and it was um just my body seemed
to not agree with it very well at all so
I forced that down for a lot of years
and I’ve been much happier switching
over you know with the rice because it’s
easier to digest it and and I can move
on and I can actually get more food
in and I feel better so I mean there’s a
lot of factors there you know if you’ve
been you know kind of force in the oatmeal
you know because you feel like maybe
that’s the only way to go you know throw
some throw some rice in
the other thing you can do is throw some
sweet potatoes in because those are
those are great carb source as well so
you can mix that in maybe do a
combination of rice and sweet potatoes
with you know with your omelet that’s
another great idea so just a couple
things to play with but you know if
you’re struggling with digestion of
something that you don’t necessarily
have to fight through and a lot of times
when you’re struggling like that it
means that your body’s you know not
liking what you’re eating so so maybe
it’s time to switch it up and try
something different so give this a shot
and hopefully it works for you
