All this talk on the other thread about nonnies not eating grains of any kind then I wondered, what do you eat for breakfast.

For me to have regular bowel movements, I must eat a good bulky cereal for breakfast with ground flax seeds and some cut up apples or walnuts.  I am not sure if I am a non-secretor but I will know in a few weeks once I get my test package and send it off.  So far I am sticking to the no to low gluten like millet or quinoa or spelt for cereals.

How do you all get enough fiber in the day anyway?

Fiber is in fruits and vegetables incase u chose NOT to eat too many grains ... however; millet, quinoa, spelt and brown rice is good for us B's  ;)

Have u ever tried Manna bread ?
It's very nutritious and delicious; try a slice with some raw honey or almond butter ... oh and Sweet potato is also high in fiber and really delicious !!

There's dried fruits that r great for fiber; especially prunes, dried figs ... etc ...  ;D

I get all the bulk I need from ground linseed and veggies, as well as fruits and the protein and fats.

I eat eggs and a whole ruby grapefruit for breakfast.

For fiber, I eat the fruit for breakfast, vegetables for lunch, and fruits/vegetables/legumes for dinner.  I also get fiber from nuts when I eat them for a snack or include them in a meal.

I'm not totally graing free, however, as I usually eat two slices of Ezekial bread to hold my sandwich for lunch...  It is all the grain I need, any more stimulates additional inflammation.

My breakfest varies,

I'll either have eggs and veggies or (turkey, lamb, salmon, sardines) and veggies or a combo. And almost always I will accompany this with avocado which I have an addiction to

My typical breakfast is either turkey bacon and eggs, turkey kielbasa and greens, or tofu/tempeh and greens. If I have grains at all, they are at my evening meal.

Nothing, if I can help it. I'm never hungry in the morning unless I've had too little sleep. I prefer warm drinks such as water, tea with soya milk. Occasionally on weekends I have coffee with skim milk.

Always first thing fresh Lemon juice in warm water (lately Sea Salt added)

I do best w protein for brkfst:

1- Egg -boiled, poached or scrambled with: sauted Veg, greens, or fresh salsa
2- Peanutbutter on celery, apple slices, or spelt toast.
3- Oatmeal w walnuts, flax, and dried fruit (seldom)
4-  Egg or Tuna Salad
5- Hot Soy Chocolate, no  cream (on the go)
6- Dried Fruit, Nuts, and Seeds

Note on dried fruit: I probably read this somewhere here.
Dried Fruit can make blood sugar spike so it is best eaten with protein.

...forgot to add, that despite having no breakfast, I get my fibre from my lunch/dinner where I eat huge amounts of vegetables. I also use oats/rice and almond/meal liberally. I am as regular as the (sunny)

My breakfast is a blender drink.  
(approx. 6 cups)  It contains:

1 1/2 C beneficial juice (Pineapple is the one I am currently using)
2 C Goat's milk Yogurt
1 lg. banana
2/3 C fresh or frozen Blueberries and/or Cherries
3 Tb flax seeds freshly ground, or frozen ground flax
1Tb nutritional yeast (optional)
2 Tb green powder
1 rounded Tb lecithin granules
1 level Tb powdered larch extract (ARA6)
2 tsp. ProBerry liquid

I drink a pint of this for breakfast, and then another pint 3 hours later.  

My main cooked meal of the day is in the early afternoon and is meat and vegetables, such as lamb with a generous (approx 2 C) of vegetables, at least 1/2 of them are usually beneficials.

The majority of my fiber is derived from my lunch and dinner where I eat lots and lots of fresh vegetables.  In a typical day, some fruit, grains and ocassionally legumes add fiber.

For breakfast, I make a sprouted buckwheat cereal/porridge to which I add soymilk, fresh or dried fruit, and sometimes a small handful of beneficial nuts or seeds.

My breakfast varies after season:
Winter :
*eggs and veggies
*eggs and turky ham fruit
*oatmeal porridge with fruit ( IF Im not grainfree)
*Spelt or ricottapancakes on a sunday :-)

Summer
*cold egg dishes and veggies
*fruit and yoghurt
*cheese and veggies or fruit ( Fetacheese and watermelon is my favorite) - maybe speltbread (IF not grainfree)
*Spelt or ricottapancakes on a sunday :-)

I do not have a problem with fibres- not even in the periods when Im grainfree- enough carrots, cabbage/broccoli, red pepper , nuts and fruits make sure everthing works ;-)
beets are great to get things moving as well.

Victoria,

That drink sounds amazing.  However, I tried goat milk yogurt and I couldn't stomach it. But you must feel great taking that concoction everyday.

Hi LF,
You could always try the recipe with cow yogurt.  I just use the goat milk products because I don't digest cow milk very well.  :-)

Spelt pancakes- I just use a regular pancake recipe:
buttermilk, egg, cornfree baking powder- and white fine speltflour.

Ricotta pancakes are really more a fat little thing - be carefull when you turn them they break easy- but are so tasty with fruit:

I've been eating quinoa flakes...made like oatmeal...yum, but probably no help in weight loss...I get a fiber benefit from it (which I need since surgery)....I also add dried cherries, walnuts and a prune as it cooks...then ghee, sea salt and agave nectar!!! Its high protein for a cereal...

Usually I eat a bowl of puffed millet cereal with soy milk and then some fruit (either blueberries, pear, apple, plum etc.)  If I don't want that, I'll have some sprouted wheat toast with peanut butter and jelly or something like that.
