Would a NAP Unibar for my breakfast be as good as the meat & greens breakfast that I eat most of the time?  It's high protein but just not meat.

It's okay on occasion. It's not as good for you as getting your beneficials and your veggies.

I work so its hard to have proteins like meat for breakfast every day. I am experimenting with stuff I can have for breakfast. I got some gluten free english muffins tonight. Where I work they offer fruit to the employees every morning so I grab an apple every morning to have with my green tea.

Hello, all you O's.  Mind if a B steps in here?  

I'm just thinking that a breakfast that is too heavy on the carbs is kinda risky for an O.  Even if it consists of neutral or even beneficial carbs.  Now, I can't remember exactly what happens, but I think it has to do with the insulin level.  Even if you guys don't have time to cook in the morning or get tired of meat, I think it's a good idea to think of options that will still meet that type O need for concentrated protein, and plenty of it, for breakfast.  Those wonderful carbs best serve an O later in the day.

(Just a B's 2 cents)

Would a handful of walnuts & apple slices be better than the UniiBar?  I'm trying to keep my weight down.  I'm about to go on vacation & I won't be able to cook meat while on the go.

Rex...when I went on vacation to Greece, for the BTD getaway, I took along NAP Unibars.  They were great to tide me over until I could get some real protein in me.  The apples (since you can have them have one for me) and walnuts are a great idea to tide you over too.  I, also, took NAP Protein Powder and Harmonia powder already mixed in small supplement containers.  Make sure they are screw on lids not snap on.  All I had to do was add water, shake and voila.    Once you can...get the whole food protein and veggies in you.  And, if you can...take along some olive oil and lemon juice for any salads along the way.  You can buy the olive oil in small packettes for convenience.  Are you travelling by vehicle?

Yes Debra...we're travelling by car which will mean very long days driving; virtually non-stop except for bathroom stops.  I like to have foods that can be eaten on-the-go while driving.

If traveling by car you can take the good olive oil.        Keep it in a cooler in small jars so when you stop you can just grab that. Pre-cut your lemons, if you're going to go the OO/lemon route for salads. Lots of other goodies you can make/take since youre traveling by car and have the cooler option.   Celery and almond butter w/ a few 'ants' on top (raisins)    WF has some awesome raisins...........flame something or the other. They're huge and so good.

People use the NAP as a meal replacement, snack, travel food, and/or portable meal on-the-go.

Half of a NAP Unibar would be sufficient as a light snack, as well.

I keep Unibars in my work locker. They are awesome as snacks, or for when someone brings in something full of wheat or gluten and I'm tempted. A few bites of a Unibar and no more temptation! (Or it's greatly lessened, anyway *g*)

Unibars are also good for occasional use as a full meal. I agree with Victoria, however. When in doubt, eat protein. If possible, leave the carbs for later in the day--the evening meal is a good choice, at least in my experience.

For most of us Os, meat, eggs and greens are a better breakfast than just about anything else. Hang in there, Rex. It takes time for each person to figure out what works for them. To my mind, this is the greatest aspect of the BTD: individuality.

seaweed is also a great low calorie high mineral snack!
