What's a healthy breakfast for you?

I need some ideas... will post in General as well... .

Wholegrain oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, a few almonds, handful of frozen blueberries, organic yoghurt and a drizzle of genuine maple syrup.

Sometimes I'll change the fruit - in summer, nectarines or peaches... but I NEVER get sick of it. Occasionally I'll have it for lunch too :-)

A bowl of special k with chopped banana.

Bacon, eggs fried in butter and mushrooms fried in duck fat. Cup of coffee with a splash of cream and a teaspoon of coconut oil. All low carb, healthy, delicious and sustaining. Off to enjoy now.

I want to get away from toast... . is why I've asked...

Think about what our ancesters would have eaten for breakfast, thats what we would have evolved to survive and thrive on.

I can tell you it would not have been toast or special K! Fruit might have been around for one or two months a year.

What does the coconut oil do? Somes yum, does it taste like coconut?

uli, Jun 19, 1:36am
It stops you from being hungry at morning tea time, thus you eat less - and yes it tastes very nice. I often eat it off the spoon. This time of year it is solid though. In summer it is a clear oil.

There's a long running thread here about coconut oil. Just put it in the search box to the left and select 'anyimte' in the drop-down box.

ie; Raw Meat. (Although that's purely my prefrence)

Porridge oats, soaked overnight in yoghurt and enough milk to loosen the mixture. I add in a chopped kiwifruit and half a banana. It keeps me going from 6am to lunchtime. I eat this winter and summer, varying the fruit and often adding dried fruit to vary the taste.

Muesli and a cup of black tea.

Yep. Meat, a variety of fruit, veges etc. And the meat would have been anything, bugs too not just roast sheep, cow or pig.
The amount of processed grain people eat these days is whats bad for you. Eat nothing made from flour of any kind nor any breakfast cereal.

Steamed salmon with rocket leaves and boiled egg with some homemade mayonnaise.

Tomorrow morning I am having flounder for breakfast. Yum.

We had hens and bantams when I was growing up, plus cream was cheap so my mother always made us scrambled eggs with cream, then she'd put it all into a pudding basin and then into a pot of simmering water, so we could help ourselves. Yum. Still like that and I'm old and have no health issues at all.

Leftover free range chicken from the night before.

I have discovered freshly boiled hot water with a kaffir lime leaf and a teaspoon full of coconut oil. Note: water should always be boiled fresh and from cold. Reboiled water, with all the oxygen boiled away, will make anything taste disgusting.

Didn't you tell us some time back that you are basically on a paleo or low carb diet? Have you seen our lovely new NZ low carb website yet? :)

motorbo, Jun 19, 6:17am
