Quoted from Mrs G
Thanks for all your comments.

I will try lessening my grain intake, I think. Can you advise good breakfast alternatives, please, that limit grains.

Thanks


I've always preferred liquid breakfasts.  Well, years ago, I loved eating cereal with milk, but that fell by the wayside!   But for more than a decade, I have a big smoothie for breakfast.  

I'll make up a quart of it.  One pint is my breakfast, followed by a big mug of Genmaicha Tea and the second pint is for brunch, a couple of hours later.  Then my main meal will be in the early afteroon, and my supper will be 3 1/2 to 4 hours before bed.

Recipe is for a generous 4 Cups Smoothie:

1 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
1/8 C filtered Water
10 oz plain Yogurt (I use goat yogurt)
1/4 C ground Chia Seeds (or 3 Tb ground Chia and 2 Tb ground Flax)
1 C frozen blueberries
1/2 C frozen sweet cherries
1 rounded Tb Lecithin
1 tsp High Lignan Flax Oil
1 tsp ProBerry Liquid
1 tsp Elderberry extract

Sometimes I'll add other things, such as ARA6 (Dr. D's Larch Fiber powder); or some type of powdered green food, such as wheat grass, barley grass or Harmonia.

This drink is one of my favorite meals of the day, and it's very satisfying.

I mix

right now I like full fat yoghurt with some kind of berries- sometimes as a smothie-. but it NEEDS to be fullfat! or my blodsugar crash. I use a special danish organic yoghurt with extra protein  but it could me filmjølk( cultured milk) or kefir as well.

I really don´t like sweet yoghurts
and I aim for yoghurts made of
milk from grassfed organic cows and yoghurt culture and nothing added.
As I recall in US yoghurt can contain lots of fillers and c**p.

In winter I often prefer eggs with veggies (That is what my O type eats all year round)

Sunday I sometimes have bread or pancakes.

I summertime I often like to have a mixed salad with watermelon and feta or mozzarella cheese
or Cottagecheese/ricottabased breakfast

There's a lot of insoluble fiber in fruits and vegetables, and this makes for a nicely formed soft stool.  


Does that make you an optimum pooper like that cute dog on the Pedigree dog food commercial?

Flax is a seed.  
Quinoa is . . . . ummmm . . a grain.  A seed calling itself a grain?  A unique grain that is really a seed?  I don't know.

I think all grains are the seed of the plant...  I'm not sure where the distinction is between seeds and grains.

We use Mountain High brand Original Plain yogurt - ingredients: Whole milk, nonfat milk, cream, pectin and the live cultures.

Most other commercial yogurt is full of sugars, colors, etc...
