Every morning about an hour after I get up. Sometimes it's just left overs from the night before.

I try to make breakfast my heaviest meal of the day. I eat the same thing daily, though. Turkey sausage (organic, homemade - well, by the sausage maker), one hardboiled egg, and half an apple (or a whole one). Lately, a cup of milk kefir (plain or with blueberries or other fruit)... sans either the sausage frank or egg.

My type B 10 year old son usually has oatmeal with milk and honey for breakfast, often with a glass of milk alongside it. He doesn't seem to want anything too heavy at breakfast time.  The school bus comes at 8:40 AM so he usually eats around 8:30, after getting dressed and packing up for school. On Saturdays he has a bowl of rice cereal and milk, and on Sundays before Hebrew School he has his usual oatmeal and milk about half an hour later. On days when he doens't need to be anyplace (doesn't happen often during the school year, but will happen a lot over the summer) he'll eat breakfast later; often around 10:00 AM, and it will be a heartier breakfast, often eggs and  toast or eggs and oatmeal plus apple sauce or a little juice.

I don't know if he'll need a higher protein/lower carb breakfast when he  gets older. For now, he's active enough to handle morning carbs.

Brunch for me.  I'm only half a B though.  So...

I eat a fried egg, two slices of deli meat (organic with no bad ingredients), some kind of juicy fruit like this morning it was watermelon.  About 2 cups.  Maybe a hair more, 1/4 cup of nuts and some dried fruit mixed in a bowl.  Like this morning it was some walnuts with 3 prunes.  The prunes were kind of small, otherwise it's usually just 2.  Sprinkled with some sea salt and cinnamon.  

Lovely "brunch" for me.  I don't do well on real early breakfasts.

My Mom and Daughter are B's.  And they both have been classically much more "morning" people, than I ever have.  And seem to eat well in the morning.  My daughter had a good portion of oatmeal with raisins and butter this morning.  Maybe 1/4 of dried oatmeal.  It was leftover so I don't know how much exactly.  She'll eat eggs and fruit with me some days.  Fruit is almost always on the menu at breakfast in our house.

Constant Health shake for me.  I eat a huge lunch, though.

On weekends and when I go to the office I drink a protein shake every morning.  Work days I drink it on my commute.  I have a banana or apple later in the morning.  Then I have a rice cake a bit later but before lunch.

When I travel I have an egg or oatmeal and juice at the hotel.  Maybe some fruit depending on what they have.   I’ll eat my rice cake later.

I eat breakfast every morning and within 30 mins after I wake.  

I'm not sure if this normal but i never eat the same thing.  Some mornings it's all protein, others all carbs and some a healthy mix of both. I just try and listen to what my body needs.  There's even mornings all I want is fruit.

Yesterday morning I had 2 scrambled eggs, 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with Ghee and an apple.  The day before it was Irish oaks w/butter milk and molasses.  Sunday it was 1 cup of cottage cheese w/flax oil and a green drink.  :)

Why wouldn't it be normal?
I feel free to do the same thing, tending toward protein:
Sometimes I have meaty leftovers and go for that.
Sometimes I make eggs with vegetables and cheese.
Sometimes I put some cheese or nut butter on bread.
But:
Occasionally I just go for fruit, with or without yogurt.

Often  :B I skip breakfast, just not feeling hungry until what you'd call lunchtime. I'm always happy to eat breakfast - no prejudice against it or anything - but if I ain't hungry, I ain't hungry - I just drink my coffee or tea and wait 'til very late a.m., to about 1:30 p.m.

Well you listen to your body and that is great:)
Sometimes when I am very sugar and starch free I really don´t feel like eating BF and I tend to wait to midmorning ( I get up at 6 ;) so waiting to 10- 11 is a long time :) )

Funny thing I am in a family with most O´s and they all seem perfectly happy to have the same BF every single day ...
Emma eats eggs every morning except when our hens are lazy
and she seem happy about that( and I just cange how they are cooked because I don´t want to cook the same every morning  ::)
- I have to change my BF and so does my sister ( B)  we both like to rotate between different things for BF....
sometimes eggs, sometimes cheese, sometimes yoghurt- sometimes meat or fish
sometimes nutbutter on bread.

I'm completely more than happy eating the same thing every day IF it is something that I love and that satisfies me.

I drink a large smoothie every morning and have for years.  Of course, it isn't just fruit blended up.  It's a substantial meal.  ;)

Henriette and Victoria:
I can either change or eat the same thing, when it comes to the mental aspect. I'd actually, like Victoria, just as soon eat the same thing every day, but, when the moment arrives, the tummy simply doesn't feel like it OR the item (such as certain meat leftovers, or a fresh fruit) is not available.

I'm only rarely in the mood for cereal in the morning, unless it's a really small portion. It sits heavier than meat or fruit and feels less satisfying than protein.

I've now been up four hours and am starting to get hungry - Haven't eaten in 19-or-so hours. It's a particularly long stretch, but I sometimes get like that when I'm working.

Wow. I really like meat in the morning.
I like the way I feel afterward.
I've always liked it, but I've been making an effort to track these things now.
I was surprised to hear my MD take an interest in my breakfasts and also suggest I eat meat leftovers at that time. Cool.  :)

I like meat or eggs in the morning. An omelette with lots of veggies in it is good. In fact Brighid had a recipe if I can remember: Beat a dozen eggs pour into a muffin pan untill each mold is half full, add a tablespoon of cooked veggies and maybe a little cheese, top with the rest of the egg and bake till done. Can be eaten hot or stored in the fridge for breakfast on the go.

I dunno.
Refrigerated omelette doesn't appeal to me.
But fresh it's a handy idea for something a little different.

Breakfast for me is almost always the same lol I eat a slice of spelt sourdough bread with feta cheese which I love ...sometimes I'll have two scrambled eggs cooked in organic butter with the toast instead of cheese, I also have a juicer and make fresh pineapple and orange juice and store in fridge for a few days, also drink coffee with full fat milk.

Orange juice, a Superfood?  This must be on a SWAMI.

You wouldn't care for my breakfast, probably.  I have tried all sorts of combinations...meat, eggs, oatmeal and who knows what all.  Fiinally, I decided that since I really like to graze and I always have eaten maybe 6 times a day, small amounts, that I would simplify breakfast to what I really enjoy.  So, it boils down to my pineapple juice into which I put ARA6, lecithin, psyllium, magnesium powder, cod liver oil, liquid vit. C, lemon juice and then drink loads of water to wash down all my supplement pills.  Then I have a banana and a cherry-chocolate Uni-Bar.

I just knew you wouldn't like this!  ;D

Eggs scrambled with onion/celery/cauliflower and cheddar. (Don't forget the disco music to dance to while cooking.)
Coffee and cream.
Strengthening!
Hankering for some fruit, however, and I'm thinking: There's honeydew to finish up.

Added, next day:
And then, the next day (this morning), all I wanted was fresh fruit (about an hour after my coffee with cream).
So, no, I'm not in a breakfast rut (or groove, depending on your POV).

Chia - I must remember to add some to rice and fruit breakfasts; or in yoghurt drinks - especially a yoghurt drink that is also breakfast on the go, they would lift the nutritional profile and probably make a lassi thicker like a pudding.

I buy a Lebanese product that is spiced with cardamom, pre-ground (Turkish grind), and vacuum-packed. I like it very much - takes me back to the Middle East, and probably to distant genetic ancestral memories of crossing the desert! The desert nomads spiced their coffee this way, and their descendents still do, though some prefer or also use coriander seed. The original reason (foul-tasting water) for spicing the coffee no longer exists, but - because it's so delicious and became an ethnic habit - it stuck.

As you know, my palate is highly attuned to herbs and spices, and the cardamom really works well, for me, with strong coffee.

turkish coffee, pancakes, peaches oh my; reminds me of ye olde cafes that make baklava dripping in honey & pistachio and serve tiny cups of black thick spiced cafe.

today I had a nice cafe brunch; poached egg, hollandaise sauce, spinach, mushrooms sauteed on small slice of toast plus 500mls of 50/50 grapefruit juice in warm water

Yes. This be the stuff. Real coffee. My Palestinian friends call it "Arabic Coffee".
When I was young and living in Paris, my Moroccan neighbor turned me on to it, and I've enjoyed it ever since. But I liked really dark espresso flavor before, too.

Tried some coffee on the weekend - yuck - could only drink a small sip. To think I lived on one a day! Blegh. I had only one in the past 8 months, I had a late drive home from the city & to keep me alert I actually enjoyed that one.

Today was a minimal start to a hectic morning - squeezed half a grapefruit in warm water, drank that, more water with some spirulina, a hot cocoa - made with raw cocoa powder, agave & tspn cream.

Looking fwd to lunch!

Hi, chèrele: Thanks! This morning was another of those when I just couldn't go for it. I do know better. I was surprisingly hungry for so early in the morning, much earlier than usual. But the thought of cheese, even, was a big turn-off. Sometimes I just eat the one thing that doesn't disgust me. In this case it was simple toast and jam with some butter.  :-/

I really agree with you re: potatoes. I don't eat them often.
The flavor of a baked potato is just wonderful - a rare treat.
Occasionally I buy a bag of chips/crisps or, if eating a hamburger out, indulge in - yes - french fries, but I like potatoes best when their inherent flavor comes through.

And this morning's breakfast, at 11:00, consisted of a salad accompanied by crispy flatbreads.
It was a slaw of kale, carrots, red onions, parsley, and romaine in a creamy jalapeño ranch dressing.

HBSec:
Thanks for that.
When I read that you favor Gravensteins for this, I was intrigued, because the American center for Gravenstein orchards is here in Sonoma County, California, in Sebastopol. I thought: Are they exporting all the way to Denmark?  :D
So I looked it up.
The variety actually began in S. Jutland, Denmark, and it is believed it was brought here by Russian explorers who planted a tree in Fort Ross, on the Sonoma Coast.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravenstein

And if you're interested in the Russian settlement of Sonoma County, California, you can take a look at this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Ross,_California

Wikipedia will do, for now. But you can keep surfing, of course.
Or maybe I'm the only one interested in stuff like this?  ;)
Meanwhile, apparently the Sebastopol (note the Russian name) crop is for some reason dwindling.

Sadly Gravensteins are hard to grow organic- some years like this year it is not good :'( :'( :'(
- so I try to use as many apples as possible before they are all bad.
Then I can start on my other types of apples. (Belle the Boscoop, Aroma, Prima and Fillipa)
I ve got 5 types  on 4 trees. ;D
3 medium size trees and 1 big( the Gravenstein- it is a red Gravenstein very pretty - but hard to pick .

Hi, Mayflowers. I don't find it at all odd that someone's tastes in food can differ from a parent's. I don't think I've ever met anyone, in my over-half-a-century, who claimed to have the same exact taste in food as a parent, down to the last fruit.

Yum leftover pizza!

The fritters were super quick & easy - inspired by your apple omlette actually!

2 zucchini grated into a bowl, mix with 1 cup of almond meal, pinch of sea salt, sprinkle of cumin, 2 free-range eggs.

Spoon fritter sized amounts into a hot skillet (I fried them in a little rice bran oil) Cook through about a minute or two each side.

Rest briefly on some paper toweling.

Plate up & season with sea salt, fresh chopped red chilli, teaspoons of greek yoghurt, fresh basil leaves, grate pecorino romano or parmesan over the top and finish with a splosh of evoo.

I eat 3 eggs everyday. I saute some potatoes or leeks or green beans and whisk 3 eggs. pour it over the veggies and cook it like an egg pancake

I usually eat eggs every morning and feel MUCH better when I do ;D

Well right now I eat eggs most days-
I need to keep a pretty strict diet since I have a upset stomach - so I follow a" loose" GAPS diet combined off course with my swami.
So this morning  had eggs mixed with apples grated and almond flour- fried in ghee and eaten with a few blueberries and a littel honey.

Your dip sounds nice & fiery SJ.

Today I had some cherry tomato & mushrooms sauteed in butter with fresh garlic, chilli & loads of finely chopped curly parsley - I use parsley like spinach - spinach is overrated IMO. I had this on a sliver of left over sourdough from party yesterday.

Mug of matcha w agave.

Actually, it's not. It's all in the proprotions. It's more like a cream cheese dip that happens to be flavored with some horseradish and peppers. More creamy than fiery.

Yesterday I had smoked salmon and cream cheese and some raw veggies- I know it sound odd- but i woke up starving and I didn´t want any eggs or yoghurt based.

today I had apple pancakes- this time with pure maple sugar- my stepdad brought it back from the states - we cant get it here. I really liked how it melted with butter :) It was blistering cold 21 F and to be honest I would have loved a slice of bacon :B

1. I don't think your salmon/cream cheese/vegetable breakfast looks "odd" at all.
2. I agree that some bacon would have been great with the maple-y apple pancakes. Can you get Turkey Bacon there? It's very popular/common here.

;D I think most Danes would disagree - they are very much into sweet bf today like yoghurt and cereal- even though that is a fairly moden thing- we used to eat cold pork and ryebread or herrings or egg or cheese instead of cold boxed cereal - really not great for any one ::)

We can get some absolutely horrid turkey bacon here- it is not crisp at all and is made from sad sad sad caged turkeys so I never buy that.
During the winter I sometimes eat a little  expensive free range organic bacon- it is one of my few avoids- with olives and avocado :B
I never feel anything bad when I eat high quality pork and it is tier 2 avoid in LRT so I might be naughty  :Pbut is very much part of our cusine.
My daughter is crazy about bacon so I think she would leave home if we never had it ;)

I usually eat huge breakfast. I would say the largest meal of the day. My lunch is also substential and dinner very light. Breakfast consists of protein only. This seems to work best for me. Sometimes I have to skip lunch if I am too full and just eat early dinner.

-1/2 lb wild salmon and 2 eggs
-1/2 lb lamb burgers made at home (ground lamb, chopped onion, minced garlic and ginger, turmeric, coriander, salt) with couple of eggs
-1/2- 3/4 lb  lamb kebabs (marintated in yogurt, gignger, garlic, spices)
-4 eggs fried in ghee

Wow - that is a huge breakfast.
When I first wake up, it's hours before I can eat, usually, even a small amount (e.g., one egg).
And then hours, again, until I want a Large Meal.
I can certainly see, Monika, how you sometimes "have to skip lunch...and just eat early dinner".

I don´t feel that hungry in the morning :-/
so I would say my bf is medium in size- always around 6 (7)
I have my only snack meal at 10 ( coffee and nuts)
Lunch around 13 normally my biggest meal Veggies and some kind of protein and fat
cup of tea around 16
dinner medium big around 19
- It works best for me that way.

I used to eat lots of small meals every 3-4 hr and I got hungry all the time ....

Then I tried eating a
huge meal at BF ( got nausea)
medium meal at lunch ( ok) a
nd a small light meal at dinner ( got horrible hungry and couldn´t sleep)

I actually ate in the morning again!  :o
And I had an avoid (lentils) in a curried pilaf with rice, and I had brussels sprouts which actually tasted sweet.

Henriette brings up a very interesting point.
On a bitterly cold January morning in Denmark she has tropical fruit juice and yogurt, saying "they're superfoods".
On a moderately cold morning in San Francisco, California, there are lentils studding my curried rice / brussels sprouts breakfast, and I admit this ingredient is "an avoid".

Whose breakfast was the "better" one, more appropriate and healthful for the party concerned?
Apparently SWAMI doesn't ask you what time of year it is and what foodstuffs grow naturally in your vicinity and what the weather is like on a given day -- I think this is a drawback.

I think the only drawback is that a user's expectations are such that the software must provide locally appropriate (weather and growing conditions, etc.) menu for each day...  The software isn't designed to run your life, just to allow you some guidelines for better health.  It is still up to you to eat enough of appropriate foods for whatever the weather is.  It is also your decision whether you buy food from a local farmer or what has been shipped in from Chile or China...

Normally I try to avoid eating meals that doesn´t fit seasons.
I try to eat warm bF in cold winter days and light meals with yoghurt, fruit etc on hot summer days.
However this was just because of lack of money. :'(
I made the yoghurt for dinner some days earlier - and had some leftover

Milk  ?? well 1 litre organic full fat non homogenised milk cost around less than 2 dollars so it is fairly cheap - I just don´t like trowing things out.
Veggies and fruits are really expensive right now - well veggies that are lighter than the cabbage and root veggies that I grow myself.

I normally don´t.
When I eat really no grain no sugar I sometimes first have bf around 10- 11 even though I am awake at 6. I seem to natural incline toward somekind of IF then.

Right now where I eat more normal( more carbs)
I am really hungry at 6 and since I have started to teach = can´t eat when I want to -
I prefer eating real bf at 6 - but then I am not hungry before 12 -if BF has been egg based. ;D

As for Henriette, she has been known to sometimes eat around dawn!  :D


;) yep - that is the problem with early cold mornings.

It is holiday week here and I still woke up early today  >:( around 6.30  ::)
So in the end I got up and made a yoghurt/, strawberry, rosehip, orange smothie- very tasty
- but not good enough on a cold moning like this
- so I ended up frying some apples and onions (and 1 slice of organic bacon  :B) - Sooo good on a snowy dark morning.

I think IF I had coffee with cream in early morning I wouldn´t eat much bf as well.
I do have a cup of coffee around 10 in the morning - but I never liked coffee first thing in the morning- I need tea there :)

Even if without cream, and even if tea, I don't get hungry - generally - for hours after I wake up.

Henriette:

Just looking over all the variation customary to you and to me: Amazing that so many have regular menus at regular meals and can tell you which meat they'll eat and when and how many ounces...

I'd love to say, Yes, I eat an egg every morning -- but there are days I'm just not up for it, just can't consider it. Today I wanted one, but that doesn't happen even the majority of the time. When I have one, I really appreciate it, really enjoy it and get a lot of energy from it.
Which raises the question as to whether those who say they sometimes get energized by eggs and sometimes don't are sometimes eating them purely out of habit, and, when doing so, aren't deriving the full benefit in a noticeable way...

My only contribution to the breakfast discussion can be that 99% of the time I eat two eggs for breakfast. Being a B, I of course vary the preparation a little bit but that's it in a nutshell: 2 eggs, some type of grain like spelt toast and a handful of fruit, usually berries plus a pot of green tea. Every day....  ;D

Breakfast varies for me: if not cereal (with almond milk), or oatmeal, sometimes it can be an omelette with toast, sometimes just a few glasses of almond milk, or other times just dried fruit. It depends on my mood.

This morning I had to eat a little bit of protein at 8:00 or so, because I had to take medication.  :-/
I wasn't at all hungry.

Actually, there's a difference between eating something to protect the stomach from meds that harm its lining (this wasn't one of those) and meds that have other side effects that are strongly countered by having had a high-protein meal with/before it. But I just couldn't bring myself to eat such a breakfast this morning  :-/. Shucks. I just had a little piece of sliced turkey, and, of course, I've been nursing my coffee w/cream.

It'll be awhile before a real meal, I think.

That sounds good, so you dont eat bread or cereal?
Posted by: Henriette Bsec, Friday, June 21, 2013, 9:03am; Reply: 317
I keep my breads and pasta to a minimum.
I never eat wheat( except when I visit people) - I do have some spelt flour and a few times  I might bake with it.
Fine white spelt behaves very much like wheat but my tummy prefer it I can eat it a few times a week without getting pains while normal wheat upsets me very quick.
A cookie or a slice o wheat bread is ok- but if I add pasta on top I get severe pains and diarrea.

I used to be a vegetarian who had lots of wheat, rice and oats - but I realised years ago that I do better when I keep them away from my diet and use them as a special thing.
A BF without grains keeps my blood sugar stable and I eat better the rest of the day... less snacks and sweets ;)
So I eat eggs and veggies 3-4 days a week In winter often almost everyday.
Full fat greek style yoghurt with fruit and nuts 2-3 a week.
and maybe a bread based thing on sundays like pancakes ore croissant but always made with spelt.
In summertime IF it is hot I might eat something like cheese, fruit( melons) and grainfree cripsbread( made with flax and nuts)

Last days I have had scramble eggs with kale- pretty good as well.

Yummy!
Did you sauté the apples in butter? Is there any fat in your breakfast, darlin?

It's 10:00 here and no breakfast yet, but you're inspiring me, HBS.  :)

Lots of butter to the apples and my sour cream is 38 % fat :)
I have this huge gravenstein tree and it was so cold and hens had only laid 1 egg = so it had to be pancakes. ;D

If you are bordeline diabetic -i would look after a lower carb /high fat version of the B diet.
I avoid most grains most of the time  and my blodsugar levels are far better than when I ate a grain based B diet.

Today busy morning I had stewed apples with organic heavy cream- maybe not the best but yummy  bf ;)

Blackberry/ yoghurt smoothie

Lately I have had bf around 8- but from monday it will be breakfast to go since I have to take the bus around 5.40 in the morning for the next 2 months.

What will you carry as breakfast?
5:40 is early -for me- to eat, but you've shown us here that you can eat at 6!

I am thinking cold omelet rolls with cream cheese and veggies

Cold egg muffins filled with cheese and veggies like peas, spinach

Cripsbread with beef salami and cheese

maybe egg salad or tunasalad ?

Maybe a yoghurt/cream mix with nuts and fruit
( doesn´t make me so full. :-/)

I tried today to mix 200 ml high protein yoghurt with some cream due to the no fat yoghurt
with a banana and it only kept me full 2 hrs compared to the egg/ veggies that make me happy for 5-6 hrs strange because I got at least 22 gram protein in that serving.

I got up at 6 today just so it wont feel so bad tomorrow :B

Can you heat stuff up where you're going?....Leftovers!  :D

I'm also thinking a warm turkey-ham & cheese croissant sort of sandwich.
(I'm not a big fan of cold eggs in the morning),
but melted cheese can be be very comforting, and particularly strengthening with some sort of bacon or prosciutto.

Also, as you well know, smoked fish with cream cheese delivers the double protein punch, too.
Smoked trout or salmon, some sort of bread, and the raw veg support: lettuce, onion, maybe some lemon and capers?

oh the fish and cream cheese in a omelet with spinach might be good - I would prefer not to cook anything in the morning .
Just get up, wash - make tea and grab my bag and go. I have to walk 10 min
Take bus 45 min- wait and then take train 15 min wait 15 min and then take bus 20 min and then walk again 10 min- so I have plenty of time to eat something.

Salmon or tuna salad might be nice as well.
Yes I would love something hot - especially now winter is on its way,..lets see IF I find it easy to get up in the middle of the night ;) then I might start to cook something hot:)

We're here at the same time!
So unlike me to log on at 7:30am!  :o

What I was thinking, HBS, was - have your tea and something cold at home, then: Wherever it is you're going, heat something up when you arrive.
For instance - the night before, make the "ham/cheese" sort of sandwich I'd described, for heating later.

But, yeah, a smoked fish sandwich instead, while traveling, would work, too.
Happy travels.

11:50a: Turkey sausage from Whole Foods: This one is Cranberry/Apple.
In olive oil, I sautéed it with celery/onion/fennel, added some mushrooms, fennel leaves, red wine and thyme, salt, pepper and pat of butter.
Sampling this product.
Too sweet: Wouldn't use it -as such- again.

Well I got tired of the eggmuffins ;)
So this week I had egg salad with fermented carrots dices and a slice of crispbread. That works very well  too.

Today ( day off) I am having leftover fried potatoes and fried egg- and strong strong hot tea.

Have to figure out what I want to eat the next 2 mornings and then it is holiday ;D

Boiled eggs
homemade mayo - creme fraise 38 %, a little curry, sometimes a bit of mustard.
I found out that the fermented carrots gave i sa nice addition.

12:15p. Cream cheese omelet.

Fermented carrot sticks is such an easy way to get good probiotics into my diet and I find them much easier to make and eat than sauerkraut  and other cabbage based things.

Last days I have been home on holiday
One day I had sour cream/spelt pancakes with apples and honey

The last 2 days  scramble eggs and mandarine around 7.30
