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

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!!

(I have not checked this for nonnie's so please forgive me if it falls short for those of that distinction)

For a more traditional slant,I think this pancake or waffle recipe might go a fair way t'wards getting protien into your morning. I too have distanced myself a great deal from carbs in the morning and do like the results, but every now and then waffles are a treat and this ingrediant list if I'm not mistaken will float a boat for both most A's and O's:
Cup of rye,
cup of spelt,
cup of oatmeal,
cup of soy flour (full fat)
a teaspoon of equal baking soda-cream of tartar mixture ( to avoid corn starch in baking powder)
one or two eggs,
one cup of  soy milk,
two or more cups of water,
one tbsp or more olive oil
and a tbsp or more of honey(for that magic way it keeps things moist!)

Serve with ghee and maple syrup and perhaps a little yogurt and maybe those turkey sausages!

It might be too much batter for only one person because this feeds our family of four ( three A's and one O) with little left over. Stored in the cold for another day the  rye in this get's a little sour-doughy, but it can still make a good pancake for some's taste for another day or two later. I like to believe that limiting myself to just one of these is o.k. for me as an O. For the A's two seems to do  it. Between the eggs and the soy amounts and  the combination of whole grains I feel there is substantial protien in this.

Wow!  That sounds delicious, thanks!  Are the rye and spelt grains in flour form? I'm very new to these types of grains...

After posting my waffle recipe I checked the non/sec status and was surprised to see how positive it turned out to be for both groups in the A camp. Not so for O's  of the nonnie band unfortunatly. I still don't know my own placement in that regard but my health has been great since going slowly more BTD "compliant that I expect I'm just a sec and not one of those non rarities.

Scout, yes all flour ingrediants. Thanks for the username complement! It's really true. I used to be an economic vegetarian( working= have money eat meat/ not working =no money can't have any meat) until I read "One mans food"  and the various problems I'd been dealing with all made sense. Now no matter what; I try to: eat (a little) meat and I like it (that way)!

I like having homemade whole grains such as organic whole rye berrie, oat groats, homemade sprouted buckwheat.  I add unsweetened soymilk, dried organic pineapple, ground flaxseed meal.  Sometimes I may add only a beneficial sweetener such as molassess or barley malt or have my breakfast sans sweetener.

To increase the protein content, one can add tempeh, tofu, or a compliant protein powder, such as the NAP 'A' Protein Powder.

I could certainly see the  value of being sure of a compliant protein powder. I have yet to try some kind of soft tofu in waffle mix but perhaps brunch tomorrow will be the day.
We're down to the last gallon of maple syrup from our trees this past spring. (I wondered why all the toothless types when I moved here.... Vermont) Maple syrup is so delicious it can really grow on one. I have to be extra careful to remind myself and everyone else in the house to do the scrupulous brushing of the teeth. Perhaps molasses should be blended with maple if it really makes such a difference in beneficial from neutral?
At dinner tonight we were talking about waffles for breakfast. The A's had corn on the cob but there was some left over. It's coming off the cob and will be selectivly added to the A's waffles. I might add quinoa to some of the batter for me and a guest O. I've found that though I miss corn on the cob avoidance is a wise policy and quinoa is strikingly corny substitute.

I've yet to go down the unusual grain path.  I only eat some sprouted wheat bread (toasted) from time to time.  Someday!

I've been sprouting black lentils again, and having a bowl of them with a bit of lemon juice and wf tamari for breakfast. I've heard that sprouting legumes and grains increases the absorb-able protein content by 20%. I like sprouting legumes because they don't have to be cooked to be eaten.

some things I do. I work out every morning and I find I need a fair hit of protien in the morning or I get weak.

yogurt (2%) with sprouted ground flax seed, oatmeal with berries.

scrambled eggs--1 real egg, two egg whites with spelt toast

omlet with peppers,onions etc.

spelt toast and og peanut butter--I drain off the oil when I first open the jar

Low fat Turkey sausage and oatmeal or toast

If I get real ambitious I do a ground turkey, veg and bean combo in my slow cooker overnight. Use lots of powedered mustard and tumeric in it.

scout, you might want to try sprouting lentils as they are one of the legumes easiest to sprout, and they have a nice plesant, crunchy texture once sprouted.

In the past, I have sprouted lentils and azudki beans; I have tossed them into my salads for lunch.

Nice, diverse ideas and homemade recipes from the contributors on this thread.  For those that shared your recipes, you may want to add them to the BTD Recipe Index.

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.


Hi Victoria
How many fruits per day would u consider overeating fruits ?

Mitchie,  I find for myself, if I have a very high protien breakfast the day goes so much better.  Here is what I have:

Salmon with sauteed green tomatoes, zucinni, and eggplant
Lamb with sweet potatoes and spinach
Chili with turkey burger
Chicken breast sliced very thin with green beans

I eat my 1 serving of grain in the late afternoon to evening, I sleep much better eating that way.  If I eat to heavy a protein in the evening, after midnight I have to much energy to sleep.

Quoted from Vicki
Turkey breakfast sausage patties served with spinach and juicy sauteed onions:

Italian Version Of Turkey Sausage
Description:

1 pound ground turkey
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/8  teaspoon anise seed
1/4  teaspoon garlic, minced
1/8  teaspoon thyme
1/2  teaspoon oregano
1/4  teaspoon fennel seed
pinch coriander

I like to drizzle the hot sausage with some molasses

Add in some fresh parsley or cilantro, if desired.




Thank you, Vicki,  for this recipe.  I've been wanting to make my own turkey sausage but didn't know where to start  By the way, I did not find any coconut milk with out any avoids, so I end up making my own.

Hey Wit -

Will you please provide your actual recipe?  I love anything in the slow cooker.

And thanks to everyone for sharing their breakfast ideas!

I have just started the type A diet this week. I am looking to get away from all the Ezekiel breads etc too for meals. I am concerend about all the soy as I am menopausal and hypothyroid ,but I am eating the soy as directed. I put stevia in soft tofu and put it in the micro to make a pudding. I like tofu so that is the way I will get my protein. I did find that I have put in a bit of weight in the short periodt of time eating the ezekiel bread and rice cakes with peanut butter. I used to do uh oh atkins and found that it did work for me, but I want to feel better and be healthier. I do feel less tired already.

I would love to know if anybody can share their weight stories as I am concerned about putting on more weight. I gather it may take a while to start reaping the benfits of the change in food.

Also, anybody know where I can buy fig powder as I am goingt to try the metobilic protocol and the detoxification protocol? SHould you do both at the same time or one at a time and then which one first? Thanks

a few important things crossed my mind when reading your post.

I d look into doing my secretor test, to be able to fine tune your food choices even more.
also doing the serotype test would help reach that goal.

the menopause book would be a targeted guide to follow, for your condition.

let me know if you need help finding these suggestions.

typebase has all the updated values on food.

yes potatoes are an avoid for both secretor A s and nonnies

but sweet potatoes get to be neutral if you happened to be a non secretor!!
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?323
this is the reason to get your secretor test as well as your serotype test done.
if you happened to be an A 2 meat becomes a neutral, too.
Type A2 can eat more meat then A1 so a Non secretor A2 is as about the close you
can get to be an O.
perhaps this is the reason you did so well with Atkins in the past!

Welcome to the forum, mindyf.

In the past, I believe it was stated on the BTD Forums that in lieu of using fig powder, eating a few dried figs before bedtime would suffice (I would favor organic, if possible).

A web search on google might provide some supplement proprietors that sell fig powder.

Yes, you can perform two health protocols concurrently:
