Hi Everyone!

I'm looking to increase my type A protein at breakfast.  I'm not much of a smoothie girl (I like to chew) so what are some suggestions?

I'm currently having some amaranth cereal with rice milk, black or blueberries and a handful of walnuts with a hard-boiled egg on the side.  I want to give up the grain thing and go more protein based.

Thanks all!  

By the way, I'm not stuck in 'breakfast food' mode so any food is acceptable.  What is everyone eating to start their A day?

How about a stalk for celery(the ones from the middle of the bunch) for early in the AM and an apple.
You could either eat it after the fruit and walnuts, or cut it up into it and eat it all together with the chew you desire (maybe have soy milk alone, and douse fruits & vegetables with a tad of olive oil & lemon juice and a compliant spice and maybe some herbs thrown in. and keep the egg for protein

or sometimes add beneficial animal protein like fish or poultry, etc.

I love sauteed turkey kielbasa with either pan fried kale or broccoli (or both!). Sometimes I'll substitute tofu for the turkey...

Great suggestions everyone!  I've never been much of a breakfast food person much rather preferring maybe leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes and gravy with some corn.  But those days are gone.

I will go back to non-breakfast foods to start my off my day, just compliant ones this time around.

Plus, it's always fun to hear people say "You're going to eat that for breakfast?"

I'm sticking with a grain mixture for breakfast and also acai  berries(super antioxidant and energy).  I get a four pack from WF.  People do use it in smoothies but I just melt it down and eat it.  It is sweetened with quarana (sp.)

Anyway, you could try some soy (without the pods).  I don't know if you eat soy but they cook up quickly.  Put in a bowl, add sliced avocado (not too ripe) and crush some tamari almonds.  Add ghee to the mixture and top with the crushed almonds.  Very nutritious.

Um... I often do "Huevos Rancheos" with black beans, an egg, a bit of rice (instead of the tortilla).  I find that I don't need the salsa or peppers if I add cumin, a sprinkle of cinnamon and cilantro.  It's very nice.  

Sometimes (when I'm feeling luxurious) I add a little dollop of sour cream.  Mmmmmm....

This morning I had sauteed Wellshire Farms turkey kielbasa and lacinato kale in ghee, topped off with a bit of fresh lime juice and wf tamari, with a bowl of fresh blueberries (King Sooper is selling them at 2 lbs for $6). *slurp*

A favorite of mine is scrambled tofu. Crush the tofu with a fork, add salt and seasoning (I use Mrs Dash) and stir. Over low heat scramble tofu like you would an egg. cooking time 2-3 minutes)

You can add a whole egg or just the egg white which gives it a richer flavor. Just beat egg in a bowl (few quick strokes) add salt (optional), then add to frying pan only after tofu is cooked to your liking (2-3 minutes should be enough ). Stir tofu and egg together (1 minute) and serve immediately ( add crush feta cheese to tofu, optional) with a slice of bread, along with your favorite fruit.  

This meal is tasty and keeps you full for a few hours.

NB. Scrambled tofu can also be served as lunch or dinner with basmalti rice and pinto beans.

Enjoy

Drea, You had Willshire Farms highlighted so we could go there,  Did you actually pay over $25 for 12oz of turkey kielbasi?  Just wondering.  That would make it over $32 for 1 pound.  Is this correct?  Or is it a mistake?

MoDon, that is so true.  I was just thinking a few days ago how maddening it is to want something other than typical breakfast fare in a culture that only offers that at a certain time of day!  Once again, though, it is my bad, because if I would engage in proper planning and preparation, I wouldn't find myself in the situations I perpetually find myself in.  OR, failing me finally consistently planning and preparing my own stuff ahead, IF a Whole Foods would come to my city, I could go on, never planning ahead, and get a lot of convenient, yet compliant and healthy food right there on my lunch break.  I was just thinking about that, too, in light of the WF thread.  I just drove through 93-degree heat to get some stuff I'm not too thrilled about from the best HFS available in my city.  I was thinking:  speaking of WF, if we had one here, I'd be about a billion pounds lighter.

But that is no excuse, because one can be 100% compliant or as compliant as one wishes, if one will do the planning and prep.  And when it comes to breakfast especially, one needs to, because otherwise this culture is determined to feed you only what it deems "normal" breakfast foods, which, with the exception of eggs, are usually the most O-unfriendly cluster of food items you will ever hope to see!  Or not hope to see, as the case may be.

No, I buy mine at the local HFS; I was just using the link to show the ingredients. WF sells it for $4.99 and I buy it at Vitamin Cottage for $3.99.

Mmmmm... Breakfast... I too have started to be amused by people's faces when they see my breakfast - and the lunch i take to work, which is often the same thing, eaten cold.  Quinoa with onions, veggies and tofu or fish or a little chicken is good on the protein front and quite quick to cook (though not as quick as a bowl of cereal!) Sometimes a similar dish with brown basmati rice instead of quinoa. I want to try amaranth but have yet to persuade a local store to get some for me here in the UK.

I don't know how i will cope if I get a holiday this year....

I'm having chicken stew with veggies all this week for breakfast and my normal breakfast for dinner.  I'm going to try to really wean myself off all grains and lower my fruit eating (bummer) to see if that gets me back to my weight before I stopped smoking.  I think I'm doing way too many carbs.

But I never met a carb I didn't like!

Mitchie,
It's been mentioned before on this Forum that we may do better eating our carbs in the evening and sticking to proteins and veggies for the first couple of meals.  I'm not 100% sure why this is true, but I believe it has to do with the trying not to spike the blood sugar level early in the day.

I personally think that fruit is necessary for health, but I do my best to stick with beneficial fruits only.  Since I don't want to overeat fruit, I want to get the most bang for my buck by adding beneficials to my daily diet.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Victoria- for a diabetic, it's more important to keep it high enough during the night so it doesn't  fall to the danger levels while your sleeping, (I know someone who dropped to 21 and was in a semi coma, if she would not had someone beside her who was alert, she would no longer be here.  That is why this fact is important to me.

For all from my understanding the meat/fish/ poultry in morning has increase our muscle body mass, so we have more energy through the day, and strength to do the exercises that is expected of us, for our body type, if in normal health, besides working and everyday life too.  And choosing beneficial in all choices including veggies for our blood type, (I am an O explaining it, so I'm sure I'm thinking as an O)
and I agree with you if I'm going to spend good money on fruit, it needs to be beneficial.  I keep thinking

beneficial= medicine to our bodies
neutral    = nothing good nothing bad to our bodies
avoid       = poison to our bodies

Maybe you can cook your breakfast the night before, so you can plan while not being hungry.
I don't like traditional breakfast foods, either.  
It's strange that we live in such an open-minded, diverse culture, but if you
don't eat traditional breakfast foods, you are looked upon like you are from Mars.
[Sorry, I'm a woman, so I might be from Venus !!]
The longer you are on the diet, the more your blood sugar should stabilize, so you
can eat more A-like for breakfast.
Have you tried my 'black chocolate' that has been discussed on a couple of threads?
It is just Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder in hot water, like black coffee.
It helps to cut the appetite as well as give a lift & lowers the blood pressure.
Since mine is already low normal, I have actually gotten woozy after too much chocolate!!

Mrs T - After reading your suggestion I ran right out to the store but alas, they didn't carry it.  I'll try a couple different stores and see if I can score some. Sounds delish!!
