Before the Blood Type Diet, I ate wheat germ, wheat bran and yogurt every morning for breakfast. My stomach hurt most of the time. I was putting some of the worst Type O avoids into my body first thing every morning.
However I liked the texture of that breakfast, and I liked the variety of fruit I could add to it. I went on the BTD cold turkey, so the first morning I had to come up with a new breakfast. It took a few weeks, but I eventually came up with a combination that I liked and that was highly beneficial.
I start with :
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp granular lecithin
1 Tbsp rice bran
2 - 3 Tbsp ground nuts or seeds (Some of my favorites are almonds, flax seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and pecans)
I moisten this with enough water of fruit juice to give it a pudding-like consistency.
Then I add the fun stuff.
This week I have had two radically different breakfasts following this pattern.
One day I used a combination of ground flax seed and ground almonds. I added a large banana and a heaping tablespoon of unsweetened carob powder. It was delicious - like eating dessert for breakfast.
Another day I used ground pumpkin seeds. I added a banana and a third cup of fresh blueberries. Equally delicious, but completely different.
