Having grown up close to Battle Creek, Michigan... the home of Dr. Kellogg and the birthplace of the breakfast cereal... I remember from my youth that the original thought behind the invention of the breakfast cereal was Dr. Kellogg began searching for a breakfast alternative that he thought would be more 'digestible'.  Apparently a number of his patients had digestive problems.

But perhaps that was just the current spin of the day... who knows??

Since when has corn helped digestion?  I know they put corn syrup in baby formula so it will go through quickly, but still....that doesn't make it good for anybody.

1 bowl of cocoa pebbles with whole almonds added and skim or 1/2% milk. Then a couple of cups of coffee with half and half. I know it's not compliant or really healthy but it's better than the wheat and corn cereals with soy milk and coffee with non dairy creamer that I used to consume. I was sooooo sick at that time.  I get chills thinking about it.

I don't "do" mornings so getting up and cooking is out of the question.  It's my quiet time to be alone and pray and wake up.  I'm a taurus so I pretty much stick to my routine.

yeah... what I do sometimes for the sake of my sanity and to free up time for myself is buy some packaged products that aren't "so bad".  That's what I say to myself.

I have a kind of non specific ratio of about 2 ingredients per every 10 neutral/beneficials that are avoids when I want to save time and buy pre packaged goods.  I find many times only 1 avoid per every ten. Usually my items don't have more than ten ingredients as I prefer to eat raw as much as possible.  

It's like the 2 avoids per package = 2 hours saved in the kitchen per week. Of course this is my own calculation and definitely not to a real scientific gauge.  I call them my sanity savers or get out of jail free cards. Like sick days or something. If you don't use them you lose them.

Stefi, if you're a B Gatherer, that cocoa becomes a superfood!   I am surprised not to see any corn in those ingredients.  Oh, what a relief it would be if I was a gluten-tolerant B secretor....

Yeah.. that's cool Drive 55.  I'm a Nomad.  So starting tomorrow I'm starting green tea and oatmeal in the mornings for one week to see if I notice anything different.  I've been doing great on my usual plan.  But I've been eating it for months now. I think I am ready for a change.  

I just got back from Wal-Mart where I just invested in my Nomad self.  I bought a new coffee maker (for tea) and some new green tea, ginger tea, and ginko & Ginseng tea.  I'm going to make a morning drink concoction I'll call G tea.  "What's up G?"  That saying will apply to me now.   

I already have the organic oatmeal.

Hey Steph,

If you love tea I recommend devotea.com - it's much cheaper to buy tea loose by the pound.  Their gunpowder green is the second-best I've tasted (Harrods had the best, but even buying by the kilo, the overseas shipping charge can kill you).  Devotea has lots of different green, white and black teas.  You can even get half-ounce samples to try.  If you buy loose tea (they sell bagged too), I highly recommend t-sac tea filters:  http://www.devotea.com/T-sac-tea-filters.html?page=all

I went to Whole Foods today for the first time - the Trader Joe's gal that I am - and not only did they have my beloved hemp seed granola in their bulk section, but I found organic oatmeal with hemp seeds from Nature's Path; I get their granola when I can't find the bulk stuff.  Haven't tried the oatmeal yet, but it looks delicious on the box.  

(Mildly off-topic:  I'm still on a quest to find quinoa bread.  Whole Foods had pasta made from it, but alas no bread.  Ah well, I bought some Manna instead, which is good but a little small for a loaf.)

Steph, I used to hate mornings too.  But since I went raw I've been looking forward to them.  Get yourself a juicer or borrow one for a while and see how you like it.  I find myself waking up and actually looking forward to going in the kitchen and making myself a green juice.  I had to be about 90% raw before I started looking forward to it.

Yeah, I used to do 80/20 but that was before the BTD and I was at my sickest (the more pure the food the more pure the lectin)Then I was in the hospital for some time eating nothing.  Then I just gave up trying to be healthy until I met a woman who told me about the BTD...so I am heading back into that direction within the BTD.  

I had lost weight while being too sick so I didn't want to do raw again until I regained a healthy weight. I will loose anwhere between 5-9 lbs. as I go more raw.  I also have to cook for my family so I have some parameters to work within.

These days I eat pineapple and almonds.  I used to eat starchy stuff, but this BTD and/or Gatherer diet has saved my life.


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

Love the juice, hate cleaning the freakin juicer! I don't have time in the morning. I usually have my juice with dinner.
