ABJoe and Bridhid45 Thanks! It just doesn't taste the same not in the jar! I don't get the "flava" I just get the HEAT. I'll try your idea.

Drive, Irish coffee? I like Irish coffee.. Haven't had it in a while.
You are just like my B. My B son would eat cereal with milk for dinner. He eats it as a snack at night..

ABJoe, I have eggs for breakfast too. If I have cereal, I get dizzy by 10 am..hypoglycemia?

My husband grew up eating Life cereal, with extra sugar on top.    No wonder he had hypoglycemia.  My MIL says, "That's the only thing that would make him stop crying.  He'd wake up screaming and would scream till I got a spoon of cereal in his mouth."  Yeahhhh.  In recent history he's been eating 2 eggs, a fruit salad and a bowl of ricotta.  After watching me eat raw for a while he's now started eating a fruit smoothie (made in the Vita-Mix) with hemp seeds as the protein.  Sometimes he eats a salmon patty with this.

I eat a fruit smoothie with hemp seeds and sometimes a side of yogurt.  Every once in a while I'll add a piece of toast or a bagel.  My daughter eats oatmeal or millet pancakes with applesauce.  My son eats salmon patties or eggs, or maybe millet pancakes, and always, always, always a kiwi.

I have never been a a cereal girl - not even as a child I never liked cornflakes...

My breakfast varies from summer and winter due to the changing seasons here.
In summer I find it impossible to eat a hot dish and I cant eat a cold breakfast in the middle of the winter.
I am often pretty hungry and crave protein and fat in the morning- especially in the winter:
I would eat egg with sour dough spelt bread and some fruit or juice and tea
or turkey patties with leftover starchy veggies
or oat or rice porridge with dry fruit , milk or butter and maple/honey
- however I tend to avoid these sweet breakfasts if I have to work cause I need a good "coffee" snack then.

In summer I go for yoghurt/fruit based breakfasts
or cheese and bread and fruit
maybe a cold egg dish.
My favourite when it is really hot   is watermelon and feta cheese

We have the most fantastic weather here at the moments: 21 C and so today
I had danish buttermilk soup or more correct a smothielike thing: high protein yoghurt called (ymer) mixed with buttermilk and a tiny bit whipping cream, strawberries and maplesirup - so yummi and fresh   we would eat something like that for dessert all summer - sometimes it is made with egg yolks and lemonjuice/sugar in stead of strawberries and cream.

But it is funny this about breakfasts:
  in Northern Europe breakfast was never a sweet thing prior to the 1930 at least not in the working/farmer class
It was rye sourdough bread with, butter, meat and cheese - or fish: often herring
Sometimes soured milk - but that was more common as a dessert.
or porridge it could be oats, barley or - often ryebread soaked in beer  overnight and cooked and severed with herrings.
We still eat rye/beer bread as it is called - but now it is sweeten and served with cream - I dont due to my B ness )

My friend from Denmark made cardamom bread for me once.  It was delicious.  I only ate 1/2 a piece because of what it contained, but I adjusted the recipe and it's "safe" now.http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?960

Yes, I have eggs in the morning...I don't have any risk factors. I have low blood sugar, normal cholesterol levels, low triglycerides.

I was a big cereal lover...Capn'Crunch and Lucky Charms..my favs. (intuitive BTD'er) corn and oats.

I noticed a Wheaties cereal box that stated "jump start your metabolism" on the front.  I thought to myself if I ate that the wheat would bring my metabolism down to a screeching halt -


That may be for the people who don't eat breakfast now....!

I have no idea how I'd react to a bowl of cereal now...  So much has changed since I ate cereal for b'fast.

I thought Irish coffee didn't actually have coffee in it...  You're right, pre-BTD, I would eat cereal and milk any time of day.

drive, I'm guessing...you're not Irish? Irish coffee is coffee with Baily's in it. rather tasty...yet evil..Moooahahahaha!

I think that's what I'm doing wrong..the horseradish sauce needs sugar! I'll try some next time.  I just bought some Annie's Organic Horseradish Mustard..no wheat. Not bad.

Actually Irish coffee ( In Dublin at least ) is strong coffee with dark sugar and lots of whiskey -topped with whipped cream - a real wake up call - and something you can get really sick from speaking from experience ( Lived 2 years in Dublin)

Hey drive,

It seems that Henriette had the only "real" Irish Coffee..When I visit Ireland..I'll have one.  I thought you looked Irish!
(I'm part Irish and a mutt also)

But getting back to breakfast..I keep doing that lately..going off topic..    So sorry about that.  So what is everyone's favorite breakfast?

Mine is PANCAKES...at Perkins..They have the best pancakes. Better than Ihop.

Americans picked up the cold cereal habit in the late 1800s from two Drs who ran a health/wellness centre in the Michigan area. They introduced their healthy breakfast to their patients/customers and it just gained in popularity from there. The doctors' names....

wait for it...

I think I heard/read/saw on TV that Corn Flakes were invented by accident.  Apparently Dr. Kellogg spilled some kind of corn gruel/mush on a hot iron stove, and he thought (as do many of us) that the resulting flakes of crispy browned corn mush were very tasty.  Or maybe that's just an urban legend, I don't know...

I heard/read/saw that the original Corn Flakes were sold as "health food" because they were sugar free.  I wonder when they started putting sugar in them?

Fitzgerald.  What a great name.  I can hear the pipes now.  Speaking of which, we went a couple of weeks ago to a pipe concert and I asked my 3-year-old if he liked the bagpipes.  "Yeah," he said, "But where are the good pipes?"

Most mornings I make a 4 or 5 quail egg omelette with cilantro, sea salt and mozza as the filling.  There is one store in Saskatoon that carries quail eggs, so I pay for them from my "special diet" budget which also covers the genotype supplements.  So I figure 4 or 5 little quail eggs = one chicken egg and therefore one GTD serving.

I tried the 5 mini meal plan for a while and ate quinoa flakes with raspberries and pecans for breakfast.  It was just like oatmeal except that there are no regrets when eating quinoa, ever  . I switched back to 3 meals a day when I found I was eating even more on the 5 mini plan.  My body just seems to prefer 3 meals a day.  The pecans alone, even with quinoa didn't seem like enough protien for me for breakfast.  I do have to be sure and add a vegetable to start my explorer day off right.  I usually try asparagus with ghee or raw mini carrots with currants.

This weekend I actually have a surplus of quail eggs : must have done the match wrong, sigh.  SO I am actually going to try to make pancakes with quail eggs (and other explorer safe or beneficial foods), using a 5 to 1 ratio, quail eggs to chicken eggs.  It should be interesting.

Obviously, I have fully embraced the explorer GTD   .

Quail eggs? cool.    

Where did those docs get the idea that cereal would squelch the sex drive? Do any of you feel it worked? Not me..
