Hi and great morning to all

My question is what do I eat for breakfast as a type o? I have resorted to eggs for the past few weeks and think I am going to be ill if I eat one more....

Besides i know they are not the optimal food for o's I am trying to think outside the box but I am realy a breakfast kind of girl at least for now no fish or greens my tummy can not take it yet I look forward to the day i can..yum

however until then what do you all do?  I miis my muffins and toast!!!
I know I know no grains and I do feel better when off them but some morning when I am in a rush you just want that comfort quick grab and go food.any suggestions would be great..
Hugs to all

I have eaten 1/2 grapefruit, a slice of EZ toast with apple butter, an EZ muffin with apple butter, oatmeal, and an egg....this has given me enough variety I can stick to just having 3-4 eggs a week.  I have considered making a fruit salad for the morning with the beneficial fruits but haven't done that yet.  I'm trying to find a way to get some protein in there with that and I can add some protein powder to the oatmeal but I need to buy some without wheat/whey in it...should order from this site....I just started on Monday.  Well, I started last Monday but totally blew it....needed to read the book again...

Nothing wrong with eating dinner for breakfast.  

The idea that breakfast must be a certain class of food is just a box that limits.

Thanks Healthy4.  I have only dial up at home so am reading this at work so can't be on long...but it's interesting to see what others say.  This is very new to me so I'm looking forward to the changes...and I need to lose 180 pounds so I'm hoping that weight loss will be a good side effect!

Hello Pat and Healthy4, nice to meet you

You might try a sort of intermediate menu for breakfast while you're changing over from grains to more protein and veggies. How about sausage  and eggs with a slice of toast? You can make your own sausage patties from beef, turkey or lamb (or a combination of those meats) and add in chopped onions, some chopped apple or pear if you like, and spices to taste. You can serve sausage with an egg if you like, or a one-egg omelette, and a slice of ezekiel bread toast.

As Lloyd suggested, dinner for breakfast is a great idea too. Nothing is simpler and faster than leftover pot roast and veggies, or some roast turkey. Quick, easy and very filling!

You can check the Cook Right forum on this message board for more ideas, there are at least a couple of threads dedicated to breakfast suggestions. I think this is the toughest change for Os used to grabbing a bowl of cereal or toast while on the run.

Hope this is helpful to you. Welcome to the boards, I look forward to your posts

I can't eat fruit at breakfast time (unless it's a very small portion with a lot of fat and protein)- it just leaves me feeling weak and shaky and hungry again quickly. I'm honestly better off skipping breakfast entirely than having nothing but fruit for a meal.


What is this EZ toast/EZ muffins you speak of?

Do you mean Ezekiel bread--it's available in most health food and natural food stores. It's made from sprouted grains. For most people it's a good way to smooth the transition from eating wheat to eating more protein and veggies. It's my favorite bread and I still have a slice now and then for breakfast or to make a sandwich for lunch.

I stay away from fruit in the mornings as well. A small banana for mid-morning snack is okay, especially if I team it up with a handful of walnuts, but that's about it. I do put some chopped apple in my homemade sausage, but half an apple in a pound of ground turkey doesn't bother me

OK, I've seen the Ezekial bread  but I'm afraid to try it, since it does contain wheat and I know that wheat makes me sick. Even TOUCHING wheat makes me sick, if it's wet and I have any cuts on my hands.

Ruthie, if you're worried about trying the Ezekiel bread, you might look at the rice-based breads instead. Most HFSs/natural foods stores carry at least a couple of brands. Just be careful to read the label of course

If you want to try making your own bread or muffins, you might browse through Recipe Central. There's plenty of good recipes that would help you out. I make my own muffins and cookies on special occasions and they're so good (if I say so myself) I don't miss the storebought stuff at all. You can also make gluten-free pancakes and waffles. If you team up the okay grains with protein sources like nuts and eggs, you'll be that much better off. Hope this is helpful to you

What about this option. I know it involves grains but it can add some variety into the mix and also be a stop gap for those days when you just don't have the time to prepare anything.

Make yourself a meusli mix with a combination of grains that are good for you (see typebase or books) and a few fruit bits as well (maybe a couple of almonds and other nuts thrown in) and then when you have a bowl, make sure you sprinkle a good heaped serving of protein powder on it and mix it through before you put your milk on (compliant of course  ).

That way, you kind of satisfy your need for a "normal" (there's that word again) breakfast, but you're getting a good protein injection at the same time. I do this about one a week and I have no bad effects from the grains (even though I am particularly susceptible to almost any grain - I think it's the extra protein that does it - I use egg albumin powder for this mix) and it breaks up the routine of meat, eggs, veggies etc.

If you're trying to lose weight it might not be the best option, but at least it stops you from becoming disatisfied with the BTD/GTD process and could be an interim measure until you start creating your own breakfast ideas.

Do searches on this site for O breakfast threads (there are plenty) and start going through the recipes links. There are stacks of things you can try. and as Lloyd said, "The idea that breakfast must be a certain class of food is just a box that limits."

It's interesting thinking about this and trying to think up a way to phrase my own breakfast suggestion. I've told folks on this forum before that the veiw is good when you somehow learn to embrace a nourishment concept that resets your own perception of why you are eating in the first place. I've been kicking around this "food pyramid" deconstruction/reconstruction idea as a way to help people visualize the re-ordering of your new list of nutrients. I'd try to regard the mission from now on as a basic and mundane search for the right fuel. Not to so much reduce your level of enjoyment from a taste standpoint as to enhance your level of enjoyment of life itself. I read a book once that extolled the benefits of fasting and one of the points covered was the remark that so much time is gained when food prep and intake is removed from the routine of daily life. Now while I'm not suggesting a fasting regime the notion that gaining a kind of freedom from the tyranny of feedtime is part of my message and my point is that perhaps a new take on the reason for eating can help achieve this. If you can regard the morning meal as an important fueling operation that as an O you can just partake of  some animal protien, a large portion of vegetable matter and be done with it. Now you have plenty of fuel in you to do other things for hours and hours. The meat is your new fuel and the vegetables keep things running smoothly. I eat a bison burger slowly simmered in onions ,garlic and broccolli. I start the onions and garlic covered, when these get translucent I'll add the burger patty and push it into the onions still covered. I'll leave it there for a little whle before flipping it then I'll add the broccolli near the end so it just sort of steam/saute's. In my house there is so much going on that over cooking it is the thing I need to avoid. My other problem is letting it cool down enough to eat it without doing that while it's just too hot to enjoy but before one of the cats make an attempt. I don't have burger every morning. A few days in a row sometimes. Often every other day. If I know I'll be really busy or active I'll be sure to have my burger. It's simple and it gets the job done.

I really want to try one of those bison burgers. I'm going on a search and enjoy mission to see if I can get one here in Oz. My mouth was watering reading that last post.

The best thing I ever did for myself after starting this lifestyle, was having dinner for breakfast.....I often have a steak with some brocolli for breakfast....I too was having eggs all the time, as too many carbs make me sluggish....Now, I have eggs maybe once or twice a week...Leftovers are also a great idea......I've even been known to have a salad for breakfast.....Breaking out of the "breakfast food" mindset took a bit, but there's no looking back now....Even my naturopath agreed that the dinner for breakfast idea is good, since depeding on what you have, can actually keep you fuller longer throughout the day......Hope that helps and good luck!!!

P.S. For brekky,  (after I have drank my lemon/lime water and ate half a grapefruit) I am having a lamb burger with okra, celery, zucchini, red onions, chopped tomato, basil and olive oil.  Yummilicious. It will keep me going for a while.

What's okra taste like?. I've never had it and haven't seen it on the shelves anywhere. What about cooking it. What's the best way?

Okra tastes like something green and slimy. I like it breaded and fried, so I don't eat it much.

Okra is a green veggie in some ways reminds me of green beans. It is fuzzy and can be stringy and if it is put in soups or stews it is very gelatinous, slimy. Maybe a cross between a green bean and a summer squash? It has a distinctive flavor, one of those either love it or hate it things. It is not sweet, not flowery or floury (unless you flour it) maybe astringent.

We just finished a breakfast of the following:

Leg of Lamb roasted in the crockpot all night
Sweet Potato with Ghee
Lamb Gravy
Eggs
Oven Roasted Asparagus
Goji Berries
Grapefruit Juice

Looks like a lot but we don't eat mega servings.  

We eat quite a few dinners at breakfast.  But most of our meals look like dinner because we are O's and eat alot of meat and vegies.

Not really.  You must not be cooking it right.  We stir fry it in olive oil with onions and add tumeric, ginger, and cayenne pepper.  Sometimes we flour it, sometimes not.  If you do flour it, almond flour is a good one to use.  We cook it until it begin to brown.

And it is just fantastic with over easy eggs on top.  

It's a  mild vegi which is good.  Doesn't have a bad taste at all.  Rather bland actually that's why the spices are good.  You could even add a few drops of Agave Syrup which we do alot if a vegi is too bitter.  

Plus you can google any vegi and finds wonderful ways to cook them all.  

Quoted from Lola

Now this is interesting Lola!  I'm going to try that today!  I've got a batch of green beans to roast up, which by the way are great cold as well.

Okra...if you steam or cook it too long it will turn slimy.  I don't mind it at all. Ghee takes care of that.   Also, I don't mind mixing my foods together where as some people do.  Fresh okra is best, but it isn't always available that way, but it is available frozen.  That tends to make it more slimy. It does make a nice thickener.  

Okra and green beans roasted in the oven sounds really good.  Do you roast them like you would the asparagus fries with olive oil and whatever spice you choose?
