What does one eat for breakfast?
My mom is on almond milk and gluten free bread but it’s getting to be repetitive. I’ve read mixed reviews on eggs and almond/peanut butter.
Her flares have been really painful lately so she’s extra cautious about her food intake.
I am intermittent fasting which is great. No breakfast. X look it up. Allows recovery x
Intermittent fasting is great once you get used to it. It not only allows recovery but helps weight loss which also allows recovery.
Jane Todd I have lost 16 pounds without even trying. I eat a lot during my 4 hour window x
Same here, right around the same amount. I could still stand to lose about 8 more lbs though.
Janet Hammond when is your window? And how long have you been doing it if you don’t mind me asking? I’ve just had a quick google and it sound interesting.
I usually open mine around 4 and close at 8. I have some days where it is 2 till 6
I eat leftovers or meat and veggie scrambles. This week I've been mixing an avocado with a can of tuna, some diced onion, salt and a squeeze of lime juice. I eat half of it for a meal. It's filling and tastes good.
What are veggie scrambles?
I us ground meat and sautee it with garlic, onion, mushrooms, season it with salt, onion and garlic powder and any other herbs ttnat sound g ood, sometimes a couple shakes of coconut aminos. Then when that's all cooked I add chopped or torn kale mix it in and turn it off and stir until the kale is wilted. You can do spinach to but I'm not a huge fan. Sometimes I'll add some broccoli or cauliflower and other times I'll top with avocado. It's quick, easy and filling. Plus you get a lot of veggies in
It reheats good too. I'll make a couple days worth and put it in Tupperware. I'll grab 1 in the morning g throw it in the microwave and head out the door. It's a good 30 min before I get to eat it and it always tastes great still
peanut butter on apple. Blueberries yogurt and granola. Bacon.
That sounds delicious lol
I found some gluten free oatmeal that is really filling and tastes good.
I eat a bowl of Cheerios, which box says is gluten free. I sometimes add half of a sliced banana if I’m feeling extra hungry. My other option is usually scrambled eggs with what ever veggies I have and perhaps wilted spinach. I also drink coffee.
Veggie and fruit smoothie
Smoothie every day with loads of spinach, almond milk, avocado, turmeric root (yes, the whole thing!), and Vega protein powder! Makes about 1 litre
I flare badly with walnuts and almonds. Everyone is different but maybe the almond milk is contributing to flare? Just a thort
Smoothies here too. I get them pre frozen and add Apple juice, coconut water, banana and sometimes spinach and avacado depending on what’s in the fridge.
I have fruit and grain porridge with loads of anti inflammatory ingredients and all organic. Hemp seeds, cacao beans, 1 banana and 1 Medjoul date and water in a blender to make the milk. Then buckwheat flakes, oat flakes, amaranth, quinoa, millet, chia seeds, 1 tablespoon of ground lin seeds, sour cherries dried and frozen, mixed frozen berries, pineapple pieces and some of the juice, sometimes acai, seasoned with cinnamon and curucuma latte powder by Sonnentor, which has curcuma, ginger, cinnamon, kardamon, etc.. I also add almonds, black sesame seeds, or cashew nuts to make the milk at times. Takes me 15min.
I like a hot breakfast. I am vegan, so my go-tos are oatmeal with berries, veggie scramble with sweet or white potato, toast with nut butter &/or jam.
What does almond milk taste like when replacing it with milk?
Does not taste like milk, but it’s not bad. You just have to choose to like it.
Lol that sounds like myother talking to me.. Thank you kindly
I use unsweetened vanilla. I don't drink it, but use in cereal or whatever else i would have used milk for
Aweful when you first try it lol
Nah. It's not so bad
I eat a smoothie, oatmeal, or avocado toast!
I hate food in the morning but need something solid to take my supplements and my drink coffee! Organic stone ground grits or boiled eggs and grapefruit or Sprouted grains toast and almond butter.
I have celery, cucumber, basil, ginger juice, followed by a smoothie of berries, pineapple, almond milk/butter, lots of spinach, chaga mushroom powder and popped amaranth. About an hour later I have a small bowl of steel cut oats with almond milk/ butter and maple syrup. On weekends I have a couple of eggs scrambled with veggies or almond flour pancakes with fruit and walnuts.
