mostly left overs from the day before, consisting of protein, veggies, and a fried egg on top.
sometimes a few slices of sweet potato on the side......ghee is always present.

I made a shake with pineapple juice, blueberries, a peach, flax oil, a raw egg and half a cooked sweet potato.

Sweet potatoes ROCK in shakes. I used to put some in a post-workout shake for the carb part, way better than maltodextrin.

I had 3 fried eggs and some collard greens and kale served with olive oil. I had eggs today because I didn't have any red meat cooked up and I had 3 dozen eggs in the refrigerator.

I think many of us have been brainwashed that we have to eat " Breakfastytype foods"
Today I had wilted spinich in olive oil, garlic and sea salt with left over cold sliced bar-b-qued Turkey ( Washed down with a big mug of coffee with cream- OMG did I just admit to that !!!! O.K I'm trying, I've bought the roasted green tea guys but it doesn't cut it for me.
I often eat spelt flakes with walnuts and raisens and vanilla soy milk ( Yes the vanilla soy does have some avoids but compared to downing a couple of roasted chicked breasts a day I'm not sweating it)
Eggs are often at my breakfast table as well as ezekiel bread with PB and agave     ( who new I could like a cactus so much!!!)

Today I had kale, crimini mushrooms and onions sauteed in a mixture of ghee and olive oil, with two eggs soft-cooked on top. Yesterday I had turkey sausage and sauteed kale with a slice of ezekiel bread toast and some all-fruit blueberry spread. Tomorrow I'll have a protein shake made with a frozen banana, blueberries, a little cocoa powder, some agave nectar, and Dr. D's O protein powder.

Lightly steamed broccoli and onions.  I took the wee bit of water from that and had it simmering and dropped two eggs into it to poach them.   Not for long as I like yolks soft.  Then mixed the broccoli and onions in and added ground flaxseed, olive oil, soy lecithin and nutritional yeast.  Yummilicous. ;)

Debra :)

P.S.  Forgot about the Dulse. :)

a Scrambled egg, Steamed broccoli, a whole sliced onion sauteed in olive oil, and a slice of turkey bacon. Somtimes I just have a hard boiled egg. Or I've had some cereal with homemade almond milk. (I need to get with Melissa J to learn which milk maker she has. Sometimes I'll ahve left overs from the night before. I've been known to eat tuna, with chopped onion and some appropriate spices mixed with olive oil and possibly braggs aminos and/or lemon or lime juice. Very tasty. Some times I'll make a smoothie of what ever fruit is available and R4YT Protein (And sometime I break open my supplements and add them too it makes them go down easier. .It really depends on my mood.

This morning I had lemon water, a banana and then a plum.  Took the dog for a 45 minute brisk walk.  For main breakfast I had roast beef, steamed kale and avocado with olive oil, ground flaxseed, soy lecithin and dulse.   Feeling pretty good. :D

Drea--I agree, and thanks :) Can't believe I used to eat cold cereal with tons of milk and sugar or a bagel and a diet Coke and think it was the best breakfast ever. :P

This morning I finished up the last of the turkey bacon. I also carmelized a large red onion and added some tempeh, and cooked until tempeh was browned.

Where do you guys find Turkey bacon that isn't full of nitrates and other junk???
I'm dreaming of soft boiled eggs, "turkey" bacon and "ezekiel" Toast with spectrum spread....and maybe some homemade sweet potato hashbrowns. My big problem is that I still crave ketchup and that darn COFFEE.......

I eat applegate farms organic, I like this one because it is sweetened with maple sugar instead of sugar or cane syurp.  It is not even really 'sweetened' just what they use around the outside to 'preserve' it, I cut the outside off so it is sugar free

Quoted from Dr. D
page 291 of LR4YT
Eat a balanced breakfast, with more protein containing food. ForType AB breakfast should be thought of as the "King of Meals", particularly if you are trying to lose weight. It is the most important meal of the day for balancing your metabolic needs and your stress response.


Mandi, Have you tried eating dinner for breakfast? Why not have some lamb, turkey, or fish and vegetables for breakfast?

Save your higher carb foods for later in the day after you have ridden your bike.

Your type O partner would benefit from this eating style too.

don,
my husband does this already.  i guess morning time is a little harder to get up and cook "dinner".  I really need to make extra for dinner, but i usually have fish, and to me fish for breakfast would be reallly hard to get used to.  I need to buy a turkey and roast it.  I really am afraid to eat to much animal protein but want to eat enough for racing.  I wish for athletes like my self there were more guidelines.  Last saturday i did a big endurance race that took me 10 hours and 56 min to complete with 10 hours and 44 min ride time.  how do you replenish from that?  wow and just raced again today but only 2 hours 42min.  this felt like a sprint.  uni bars are working well for me and can eat them while racing.  finally something that kind of works but I want an energy gel.  I think agave nectar in my gel flask would get really expensive!  
don thanks so much you have been a big help to my husband joey and i.  
oh yeah now back to the topic, dinner for breakfast is going to be hard but i'm sure i can do it, it will just take time.
also thanks to everyone!! i had sweet potatoes with eggs this morning and it worked well for my race.  Before the start i had my homemade granola.  I just can't give it up.

Did you stop using the fruit juice concentrate? If so, why? Did it not really work for you?

I have tried black cherry juice contentrate on several rides, unfortunately I have some health issues related to energy production that makes it hard for me to tell how well it worked.

My husband likes scrambled eggs, plain, with turkey bacon. I find it hard to eat scrambled eggs without toast, (fried, even harder) and I am trying to think of something yummy to set off the eggs that isn't a grain, ketchup, salsa, guacamole, or cheese, all of which I love but cannot have for various reasons. Some kind of relish. Ideas?

Today I ate three slices of applegate turkey bacon and two fried eggs (in ghee) with nutritional yeast on top. Normally I would have toast with that lot, but the toaster is still in storage *sigh*.

Even so, that filled me up quite nicely. Plus I had two cups of decaf with soy milk which helped, too.

me parece que todo pescado que viene enlatado en aceite de oliva es mucho mejor que aquellos con ya sea aceites vegetales (que siempre suelen ser de maíz o de soja) o en alguna salsa, que siempre lleva saborizantes y no sabemos que a ciencia cierta.

This morning I sauteed some chopped up garlic and ginger (I like them both in bigger chunks) in ghee and a bit of salt, then added some cooked soybean noodles - ingredients: organic golden soybeans -  that I've recently found (I think at WF, but it was in California, so it's hard to remember), and then a dash of wf tamari. This dish really fills me up, has a good amount of protein, which I crave in the AM, and all around hits the spot. That and a cup of black decaf coffee.

I have a question about eggs.  I've noticed that several O's eat two or three eggs for breakfast... is that a daily thing or only a few times a week.  For me, eggs are the easiest protien-rich meal if I don't have leftovers from dinner to eat... but I was worried about eating too many eggs because I think the max in the recommended servings is 6/week (and the older list says only 3) Also, I read Dr. D say that eggs are generally a poor source of protien for Type O's, so I was wondering if I should try to get my breakfast protien some other way.

I love to eat two scrambled eggs with lots of beneficial veggies & herbs.  It's my favorite breakfast since starting the BTD.  Occassionally I'll add some farmer's cheese or fresh mozerella, but usually just the the eggs & veggies.  It really feels good, but  I was worried that if I ate that every day, I'd be eating waaaay to many eggs.

From this thread, I got the idea to look for the turkey bacon & I just found some of the Applegate turkey bacon at my HFS.  It's soo yummy!!  I am thrilled to discover it.  It takes more time to cook up that and eggs every morning, though & it's expensive (my husband loves it too, so it goes quickly!)  I am still struggling with figuring out fast type O breakfasts with enough protien.  Sometimes I don't have time to eat breakfast before work, so I just eat a big handful of walnuts and a slice or two of dried mango.  Not the greatest, but I think it has some protien with the nuts.  I also like mashed sweet potatos for breakfast too (baked the night before), but I don't think that has enough protien to get my day started right.

I wished I liked breakfast smoothies the way that my N.D. recommended, but cod liver oil and no sugar or fruit juice to sweeten... yuck!  I just can't get 'em down.  Thanks for this thread, though... there are some great ideas for breakfast & I love reading what everyone eats... even other bloodtypes.  It's so interesting!
