How in the world did Americans ever come up with the idea of eating cold cereal and bagels for breakfast?  
I know in other countries they eat other things.
  
What's for breakfast at your house?

I just had homemade salmon patties with horseradish  on top
(oh, how I love horseradish), sauteed dandelion greens with onions and flaxmeal bread.

your brkfst sounds....healthy.
Yeah, I agree that other cultures eat  totally different breakfasts.....the vietnamese eat a wonderful soup, "Pho'", that must be very healthful....it is consomme, or delicious, rich stock, with cold, thinly sliced rare beef slipped in just as served. Then the additions: fresh basil, mint, cilantro, thinly sliced jalapeno, and bean sprouts are plunged in while its still steaming hot....is that a healthy breakfst or what?  Oh and there are rice noodles in it.There are a lot of "pho" places around my city, and the vietnamese go out for breakfast in groups or pairs, very celebratory.

My favorite breakfast for years was cooked Irish style oatmeal with
dates, raisins, nuts.. and of course pb.  As I've gotten older, I seem to need more protein..(eggs)

I really like horseradish too.  I'm having a hard time switching from the stuff in the bottle to fresh..The fresh is just hot and I'm not getting the horseradish "flava"..what am I doing wrong?  Somebody please tell me...

The breakfoods as we know now started after WW2, when the world got in a hurry, they did not have time to set down and eat, and they did not have time to fix breakfast, so they started eat fast and here came all the cereals, and then the donuts shops.

The way I see it, the American diet was largely influenced by the agriculture industry.  They took a look at all this grassy stuff out there and said, "Hey, let's find a way to get people to pay us for it!"

Then when nutrition information became available, they decided to "enrich" it to give it the illusion of providing sustenance.

So that IMO explains wheat and corn.  Go ahead, use it to make ethanol....

LarryC., that's exactly what my 90 year old friend said.  She remembered watching the shift happen, followed by the loss of discipline & behavior problems in the school.....definitely a connection.  Georgia thought it was due to mothers being gone from the home; I think the breakfast might have had just as much to with it.  

I have 3 eggs every morning, with a GTD compliant grain & veggie.  And lots of ghee/butter!  The beef sausage sounds yummy - I haven't had a good sausage in a long time!

Fresh horseradish is quite warm...  The flavor is there, too, but if you get too much at once, the flavor is totally smashed by the heat.  I nibble on the fresh root and really enjoy the flavor or grate just a quarter teaspoon to put on eggs or refried beans.  Much better than hot peppers for me.

I usually ahve three eggs scrambled in ghee for breakfast (~7:00) and a hand full of walnuts about 10:00.  I sometimes have a piece of fruit as well.  I'm good until lunch after that.

Anyway, breakfast had been a problem for me for a long time.  I was raised on milk and sugar cereal (with even more sugar on top) for many years.  When I became an adult, I switched to cereals with much lower sugar content.  Still I became very dissatisfied with cereals, although I could get by on some of the heartier, lower GI products such as granola or Kashi brand cereals to which I added nuts or seeds.

Then when I learned about BTD, I switched to wheat and corn-free cereals and soy or rice milk.  So that's where I'm at today.

Arrowhead mills makes a Buckwheat & maple cereal that stays crunchy.  I add nuts (like pecans, pine nuts), soy milk and honey (which makes this good for an Explorer who can have black dotted avoids.)

I also will have eggs and sausage made from turkey, beef or chicken, gluten free waffles (although these include potato starch) with sausage, or homemade rice flour pancakes with sausage.

I am aware of the "supper -- it's the new breakfast" idea.  But I'm so nauseous and pressed for time in the morning, that the idea of even preparing a meat and vegetable dinner for breakfast  is about as appealing as trolling for food in the litter box.

Hopefully I haven't just killed the thread with that last sentence.  If anyone's still reading, do a search for "breakfast" -- there are other threads on this subject.

And yes, I had behavior problems alright!  The principal would keep an index card on each student that he had to reprimand.  One day he pulled mine out and showed me.  He pointedly told me that he needed two cards for me because the first one was crammed full of incidents.  And I was only in grade 3!  (Actually I felt a strange swelling of pride at that moment.)

Tell me more.  Do you make these yourself?  Is there a recipe?  The only beef sausage I can find either has preservative (Armour brand) or dextrose / maltodextrin (Hebrew National).  Whole Foods has only beef bacon, not sausage.

About horseradish--I work in a food production plant that makes horseradish, cocktail sauce and hot mustard among other things, so I'm well acquainted with horseradish and how to prepare it.

If you grind your own, make sure the root is really fresh. You don't like limp vegetables--your horseradish shouldn't be that way either! I've found the horseradish roots sold in the produce section at your local supermarket tend to be dried out and stale. If you can find someone in the neighborhood who grows it I'll bet they'll be glad to give you some, it will take over the garden if left to grow without thinning.

Anyway, the finer you grind the root the hotter it will be, but it will also go flat faster too. The active 'hot' ingredient in horseradish is mustard oil, which is very volatile and evaporates quickly when exposed to air. If you do a fine grind, store the horseradish in a bottle with vinegar or oil and a tight-fitting lid and store it upside down in the fridge. It should last a couple of months that way. Anytime you open the bottle, minimize the exposure to air.

SquarePeg--you can easily make your own breakfast sausage patties from ground beef, if you can't get casing-style sausage. I make mine with ground turkey, lamb or beef, or a mix of any two meats, and add in chopped onion, garlic, parsley, cumin, and any other herbs or spices that sound good. I make a big batch, freeze them in packages of six, and take out one package a week to cook one or two up for breakfast along with some greens and eggs. (Sundays I make amaranth pancakes and scrambled eggs.)

If you want to make sausage in casings, I know Kitchen Aid mixers come with a sausage-making attachment. You should be able to find a supplier for casings through a google search. I plan to do this once I've got my Kitchen Aid.

Ugh you guys eat too much in the morning for me.   When I was a kid I liked cheerios plain, grape nuts plain, shredded wheat with salt and rice crispies with milk.  The when I grew up I stopped eating breakfast except on vacation.  After being on the BTD and hearing how important breakfast was, I started with a rice cake in the morning.  Then I graduated to an egg with a banana 2 hours later.  Maybe a rice cake if I got hungry before lunch.  So along come the Explorer diet, this tells me not to eat eggs or bananas for 3 months.  So I made a shake of whey protein powder and carob powder and then had an apple 2 hours later with a rice cake as a snack, if I needed it. I also tried millet and quinoa with ghee and salt on the weekends.  I used to have oat meal (another dot) on the weekends with butter and salt.  OK I could not stay away from my bananas and eggs for more than 1 month without feeling horrible.  So I started sneaking eggs in a couple times a week.  I have to have a banana a day or I cramp up.  So that is my un-exciting breakfast plan.

I know for me it is hard to get the recommended servings of foods into my day if I don't eat a well balanced breakfast. So as a Warrior/BT A I need to eat some veggies.

When I was a kid my mom used to feed us liver for breakfast, it was not all that bad. I ate it cooked like shoe leather with ketchup on it. As an adult it is easy to eat non breakfast foods in the morning because of what I ate as a kid.

Our family food history is important.

Americans are very narrow minded about breakfast! We eat the same foods, most of which are not particularly appealing.
Even tho I have a voracious appetite, I'm rarely hungry the very first thing in the morning.
When we were kids, we were forced to eat an egg every morning. My mom said an egg will hold you till lunch. She wouldn't allow us to snack. What she should have done was to have us eat fruit & then (if we were at home) the egg a little later.
As an adult, my appetite is for a huge meal at noon (10AM to 2PM! depending on other things)& various other combinations throughout the day. It doesn't work to wait till evening for the big meal as I won't get full. Anyway, my mom would be mortified at my eating, but I developed low blood sugar & my needs vary from day to day.
I don't fit into the American work pattern either, needing more at noon. If I work, I eat less, but figure out ways to keep the appetite at bay. Also the act of being busy(working) keeps my mind off of food.
Most of you know about my unsweetened chocolate, either powdered like black coffee or a block of it with a banana(now a black dot!) or a Lara Bar(also a no-no!) which really can cut the appetite(for me to bring it to normal!). I still have been cheating with the Lara Bar that has dates in it, but have cut to one bar with more chocolate where I had 2 bars before.
I got off the path of the topic. Back to eggs. They are very nutritious, but I wish we were given them in a salad rather than with a piece of white bread for breakfast. We also weren't taught to drink water. But my sis & I are good water drinkers now.  So, if our breakfast was a piece of fruit, a glass of water, & then maybe the egg, it would have been better. Somehow we all managed to survive! Thankfully, we are learning the BTD/GTD & lovin' it!
Meanwhile, I like to see this group breaking the mold about breakfast!!

My recent favorite breakfast is one slice of sourdough rye, toasted, with ghee, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder. Then I fry two eggs in ghee with salt and parsley, and top the toast for an open faced fried egg sandwich. Really good.

My breakfast this morning was homemade turkey sausage patties, crimini mushrooms and baby bok choy sauteed in olive oil, and a rice cake with ghee and a sprinkling of Herbamare. Simple... but very satisfying. Oh... and my daily cup of white tea too...

Ok, on-topic this time.  I used to love frosted mini-wheats, cheerios, raisin nut bran, blueberry morning, honey bunches of oats, or granola.  Two bowls of cereal with milk every morning, with sugar added for plain stuff like corn flakes, total, wheaties, or cheerios.  It's a wonder it took so long for me to reach my wit's end.  And it's a wonder I did so well in school, or didn't have behavior problems.

Lately I've been having a pan-fried beef patty topped with Colby and salsa, with a side of steamed veggies.  Sometimes I'll add and egg or two, and usually I'll have some yogurt or cottage cheese with fruit a short while later.

Drive55: I like to make a compliant mayo and mix some of it into the grated horseradish. Not knowing how your taste runs, you may want to add some compliant sweetener to it as well like the light agave syrup.

Breakfasts, hmmmm...it really varies...either eggs & veggies or some fish & maybe veggies (sometimes just plain fish 'n' salt) or oat bran with almond butter, chopped dates, coconut oil, and cinnamon.

Most grated horseradish is mixed with vinegar...  I don't know how to use that since I can't eat vinegar...  I dig some fresh root and grate what I want at a time...  I put it on eggs and in refried beans, or other mexican dishes to substitute for chiles or chili powder...

When I ate beef, I liked fresh ground horseradish with it...  Maybe that was my body wanting something beneficial with the avoid beef!

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

Quoted from sml
You guys eat a lot of eggs!I can only have 3 a week cause I have to limit the sat fat due to a neuro-muscular problem!...I do a great deal of nutritional yeast on my bowls of cereal with flax seeds.Holds me till about 10...I like to snack anyway with the Kids I work with when they take their "gouter".


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.

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..


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.

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....

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?

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   .

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.

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.
