I do ok with coffee and have never been great on big breakfasts, so I often just have 2 scoops of chia seeds in a cup of coffee, especially if I am late up or on my way to work...

Ooh, that sounds intriguing! Do you drink it or need a spoon?

I finished up my rice yesterday. I've not had breakfast yet because it's slowing down my system big time, so tea and lime water for me this morning to start - and a dose of stinging nettles and elderberry for our moldy weather. Curious that Lola would mention Genoma Security at the same time   my lungs are sore after having rice and breathing in mold-on-the-wind!

My best Explorer breakfast is an egg and a piece of fruit if fruit is around, or at least a veggie. I also do well with  egg and red meat or egg and herring,  but not very well with poultry or other types of fish. Emulsion and iron content seem to be key.

The only thing I will allow myself from now on if I want a treat is wild rice (which is not even in the rice family.)Wild rice "never done me wrong".

It's all about how plant proteins interact with our bodies from different species of seeds and grains.

OK…here we go!   I had yerba mate'  with my good old flax waffle for breakfast. I needed to focus on and make that to keep me from toasting some gluten free bread which we have in the freezer.

Looked at Lola's suggested supplement…will peruse the supplements more later.

Possum…that may be the most unique breakfast I've heard yet!

Jayneeo - yep - that's me (unique) lol
Drea I just add it to the coffee and drink it once they are softened... Might require a spoon to eat it with, if you leave the coffee too long?!
I have at times had chia seeds in weak creamy coffee as dessert/bedtime snack and will add a tad more and leave it longer to eat it with a spoon...

I had my "weaning from coffee" carob/chicory + coffee cup.

I'm down to grains about twice a week, per my son's diet (he's on strict SCD so no grains for him). I have lost a significant amount of weight, but I've had too much red wine this week, so I think I might have stalled/slowed.

I'm struggling with everything addictive right now. Sheesh. Maybe because I'm not eating as many grains or carbs. Hmmm...

Addiction is a pain in the behind for most of us O's eh Misspudding?! Having decided to post re grain free, what do I do but go and eat fish and chips last night!!!
We have our daughter and her little boy with us for 3 months and as she has no car we took her to the Dr for an appointment... Left in a hurry and I missed lunch and then she requested fish and chips for an early dinner (since she was heading to work soon after she got back)
Wasn't going to have any (and asked them not to order for me) but they smelled and tasted so good, I gave in!!! (Plus the store was extra generous with servings, so even after we'd eaten our fill, there is still enough for leftovers) Yet to survey the damage

OK jayneeo--set aside the Grindstone bread for now.

I have drastically cut back on my grain/carbs--but still have a little of our favorite bread once or twice a week.  Naturally--that's all I want when I get up in the morning--bread (GF) or oat bran cereal...

But I had my celery, kale, parsley, lemon and pineapple in the vitamix instead.  Sometimes I switch out blueberries or apple for the pineapple. But I keep the fruit portion to a minimum.  Sugar of any kind--you know the drill.  To this I add all the green goodnesses--Harmonia, Live Cell, ARA, matcha and flax oil.  Gotta have a little healthy oil with each meal.  At least that's what my ND doc told me.

And jayneeo--are you willing to share your flax waffle recipe?  I would love to have that.  I guess flax does not qualify as a grain?  I know it is technically a seed--but a grain-like seed.

Yes! I am such an addict! Coffee is the worst! I did do a few years of therapy with a very good shrink. Learned CBT and figured out how to work around a lot of cravings. Ultimately, I think I really need to get back to running. Walking is great, but I don't get my heart rate up like I should.

My ultimate cheat food is fish and chips. It is my absolute favorite. I blame the fact that 3/4 of my ancestors were Irish/Scottish or Scandanavian. I could care less about pizza, bagels, etc.

Awright…we seem to agree. Grain is pretty addictive! (gonna miss that best bread in the world, Grindstone Bakery!)
Susan, the flax waffle as recreated today:
1/4 c. flax meal (I buy it ground)
2 eggs
1/4 -1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 T. tapioca flour…but could be almond or whatever (gonna try with none tomorrow)
1 T. evoo
several drops stevia

possum-really? coffee as bedtime snack??? lol

Yeah, Jayneeo - coffee at night, but only super weak and creamy lol
Sorry to mention coffee, misspudding - didn't realise till later that you were trying to give it up!
We haven't had fish and chips, like for ever (or any other takeouts either) so it could also be my Scottish ancentory too, re that particular cheat?!
I didn't have too many chips and the fish was very fat, with a not very thick batter and I weighed myself today and best news of all, (after over a week of steadily stalling or gaining up to 1/4lb here and there, since our daughter arrived a week and a half ago), I have lost nearly 1/2lb!!
That is also despite eating almost an entire packet of caramel rice crackers and 2 squares of chocolate (because I had already exceeded my carbs and was bummed out about that)
Hope everyone else is doing ok?

Yesterday I made it through day 1--no grains.  Yay for me.  I was 'funked out' for sure, but still managed to get out for my walk.

Ate a little more cheese than I should have--and three teaspoons of almond butter.  But these are beneficials for me for heaven's sake and I have to eat something, right.  No carbs so I really needed the fat--or thought I did.   My favorite part of my Teacher GT is all my beneficial cheeses.

Historically when I have gone off carbs I cannot sleep at night.  But I slept pretty well last night.  As long as I can sleep this grain-free may just be doable.

Thanks Averno for the encouragement/understanding.

And jayneeo--will try the flax seed waffle this weekend--no bp.

well, heaven knows I have sleep issues, but I trust that my sweet potato or other carb will serve the same purpose as grain….(.hope!)

You lucky teacher! cheeses!

Relapse yesterday because of all things....some kind of unhealthy solution they inject into rotisserie chickens.....could be corn syrup/wheat proteins in it they are not disclosing??? At any rate the chicken tasted terrible after a few bites, the uneliminated rice was still causing me constipation, and all led to a binge/vomit later. Rice was completely eliminated the same evening, but led to malapsorption of carrots and peas this morning.

I ordered lunch for "everyone else' at work because it was my treat from selling $4,500 worth of opera seats - we were waiting 30 minutes and I wound up running to the vending machine as blood sugar started plummeting.....got 'tato chips   because I knew my restaurant salad wouldn't include any carbs, and I hadn't stowed any compliant ones at the work 'fridge. Ate all of my supplements with the chips. I'm still using barley grass in the morning and cal d glucarate in the afternoons.

Avoiding excess fats after 4pm is coming easy now.

But I can't afford to use the potato crutch tomorrow. I'll have to grab taco bell pinto beans if I'm in a hurry. If I don't the poisons in more 'tatoes will build up in my liver and affect my whole outlook.

Seraffa, ugh. Sorry to hear. I had...a donut. I haven't had one in years. But I've been craving it. So underwhelming. Sometimes I had to do stupid stuff to remain otherwise compliant...

Don't beat yourself up. One day at a time...

I actually have some big hunks of dried-up Taro in the fridge; they need to be soaked cos a carving knife can't even penetrate them. But they are my neutral and probably I should be alternating days between neutral starch and beneficial starch! I found on another thread with Chloe that all beneficial starches all the time did not lead to a smooth road.

What about the donut was it that attracted you to it? Brown, crispy sweet and soggy? or was it the sugar?

Today is one of those food demos with a wheat item. Grr. I get so worn out in the store with crowds and meaningless things people spend money on in their carts, and a limited variety of expensive food, and 15 minutes for lunch. I definitely WILL make this a Taco bell drive-thru bean day! I want to get to the point where I can pick and choose the items I promote. Next week is better - it's Whole 5 fruit and veggie juice in the health foods section.

Day 3…it's working so far….last night we went to our friends' house for dinner and lo and behold they served no grain! Just a fluke, they served a cannelini bean salad instead of a grain. It was super good. With lamb. yummy. (too much wine, tho)

Seraffa, I had been visualizing a particular donut with a full caf latte for at least a week. That never happens!

Jayneeo, cannellini bean salad sounds really good! Wonder what was in it?
