For me breakfast is all about the coffee I have a large cup of freshly ground coffee with soya milk (cows milk makes my legs ache ) and a piece of wholemeal toast with turmeric and a pinch of seakelp which I mix in with marmalade sometimes I have chocolate spread instead which I think goes well with turmeric

The capsules are fish oil evening primrose oil and vitamin e

Hello Lizzo30, my b/fast is often a bit of cereal with a bit of fruit and a fresh orange and green tea. Today (8/03/23) I had poached eggs on avocado and toast and Lemon and ginger tea with fruit juice.

Hi Lizzo30! I'm with you on the cup of coffee! I have never been a big morning eater, but by late morning I usually add a protein shake - vegan protein powder, collagen peptides, oat milk, flax seed, turmeric, spinach and a wide variety of fruit depending on what I have on hand! :)

That sounds so healthy Blumerlegirl yet probably very filling

I'm on a low catb diet and find that breakfast was just a habit. That's the way low carb affects you hunger hormone secrtion. These days I often nust have a cup of tea and vet to 2pm before noticing the time and think that I'd better eat something.

Yes, sugar and refined carbs not only make you put on weight but the resulting raised blood sugar increases the secretion of ghrelin (the hunger hormone). If you eat a low carb diet you can suppress hunger and not only avoid the urge to snack but easily skip meals.

That is a nice size cup of coffee 😊 I tend to make some GF/Vegan pancakes or if I am short on time I will whip up a vegan protein smoothie with various powers to make it more filling

Hi Kitten whiskers yes it's pretty big it's all part of the enjoyment of breakfast , well done you for making pancakes that's the way to go if you are gluten free bc shop bought gf products tend to have high sugar content

Great breakfast! Wow so healthful.

I have regular coffee with a splash of half and half, a poached egg and a slice of rye bread.

My go-to breakfast most days is oatmeal (sort of cooked muesli in my case)

1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon ground flax seed, 1 teaspoon of ground psyllium husk, and a handful of nuts (walnuts or pecans), 1 cup water.

Stir and microwave for 2 minutes in a serving bowl.

I then add about 1/2 cup berries (usually blueberries), a sprinkle of cinnamon, and perhaps a tablespoon of maple syrup or honey and then top with a layer of soy milk to cool and add moisture since the flax and psyllium may get a little gooey.

Add a couple of slices of sourdough or whole grain/seed bread with soy butter and I'm full for hours!

Coffee of course - 1 cup of drip during oatmeal prep, and a double shot espresso with a few ounces of frothed soy milk after my oatmeal.

I like coffee too. What do you think the healthiest coffee beans are to grind up? Thanks.

I'm just starting to shop around for a higher quality coffee. I currently grind what's available at the local grocery store, using their grinder. I'll look into the Lavazza coffee beans you mentioned. Thanks for the tip!

I’m guessing the turmeric you’re using is for its anti-inflammatory properties.. but then this is negated with all of the highly-inflammatory sugar you’re adding with the marmalade, surely? 🤔

Hi Simes 11 I think turmeric is wonderful stuff but I am only having it once a week now because I am super sensitive and was reacting to it slightly As for sugar I wouldn't say it takes away from the benefits of turmeric

Do you have turmeric?

Simes11 in reply to Lizzo30

Oh no, that’s such a shame you’re so sensitive to it, Lizzo! Yes, I totally agree turmeric is wonderful stuff; I use both fresh & powdered in all sorts of things I’m making or cooking. As for the sugar though, I’m wondering/presuming that adding sugar into the diet would likely counteract the point of taking turmeric, but perhaps one at least lessens the harmful effects of the other.. 🤔 Would definitely be interesting to know for sure. 🙂
