Porridge for me
Kids have porridge or weetbix during the week - normally finished with a smoothie

On weekends depending on what time DS is playing footy it could be a cooked breaky

I have porridge every morning ;D My own style of porridge though, with ground buckwheat, barley, nuts and seeds, whole oats and chopped banana. I LOVE it :D :D

Usually porridge or Quirky Jo's fermented rice waffles. Both are served with cinnamon, yogurt, berries and banana.

I have been on Cyndi O'Meara's HCG protocol, so either a piece of fruit or nothing - I will be very pleased when I can eat my normal breakfast again!

And very importantly coffee, either a cappuccino or a  mochiatto (not sure of spelling! ). ;D

I stopped eating breakfast for a long time after my first DS was born, I think I was so busy with a baby I just forgot to feed me and it became a habit. Although each time I was pregnant I found I had to eat breakfast or I would feel sick.
But now on my life Style change healty eating thing (it's not a diet :) ) I am eating breakfast which I am finding helps me going until lunch time and not needing any snacks in between.
So at the moment I'm eating light and tasty cereal with macadamia nuts.

Porridge with cinnamon and brown sugar, or toast with home made jam, strawberry at the moment.

I mix it up between my own muesli mix with plain yughurt, 2 fried eggs on Helga's Sandwich thin topped with a bit of swwet chilli sauce, sometimes I make a frittata with what ever vegeis are in the fridge and I have started making porridge occasionally sinceit has gotten cold. Oh and always a coffee usually a skinny flat white and some times a long macchiato.

I'm he is and does Hally ;D
I used to always have multigrain weekbix warmed up in the microwave so they went warm and gooey in the milk. Yum :-))

Does anyone else find that they get hooked on a particular breakfast for a long period of time, and then it changes overnight and you get hooked on something else? Or is that just me?

Post by: mcmich on June 29, 2012, 09:17:21 pm
I don't eat breakfast before work it's too early.
If I'm lucky enough to get a morning tea break, I have rolled oats with brown sugar and sultanas.

I usually make a cooked brunch on the weekends.

Post by: Cuilidh on June 29, 2012, 09:54:18 pm
I'm another porridge person (devotee may be a better word, I think I'm a real addict), with added grains, seeds and oat bran plus blueberries and rapadura on top with a bit of extra milk.  The only time I don't have porridge is when I am at the farmer's market at the Collingwood children's farm - then I treat myself to a hot pancake with lemon and sugar.

That use to be my breakfast when I first started nursing.
I was only 17yrs old and desperately wanted to fit in and I was very keen on a certain young maintenance man.
The smoking didn't last too long as I couldn't inhale and just ended up with a mouth full of smoke that I just blew out again, really disgusting. Still enjoy a coffee though.

Post by: judydawn on June 30, 2012, 12:40:08 am
I haven't really felt like eating in the morning lately but I know it's the right thing to do so I force myself to have something. Generally speaking, it's just toast with either vegemite, marmalade or tomato as my preferred breakfast but lately, because I can prepare it quicker, it's just 1 weetbix or a bit of nutra-grain. Not a porridge lover but I do like Amy's drinkable one - just can't be bothered making it most of the time, especially if I don't feel hungry as that fills me up until mid afternoon.  I used to love eggs or baked beans on toast so I daresay one day I will go back to that on the odd occasion. Just the 1 cup of coffee which usually lasts me until mid afternoon when I have my second and last cup for the day if I have time unless we have visitors, then we seem to have 2 or 3 cups whilst they are here.

I love eating slow cooked eggs done in the TM, but don't have them every day because they take too long to cook, 50min.
Normally I have porridge with banana and cinnamon :)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: EmeraldSue on June 30, 2012, 03:27:35 am
In winter I usually have porridge. Lately, I've been making a variation of Amy's winter smoothie with an apple, Crio Bru , yoghurt, oats and milk. The kids are having crumpets, toast or cereal at the moment. DH has a protein shake that he mixes up himself. It's about the only thing he "cooks" from scratch.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on June 30, 2012, 06:58:50 am
I used to use muesli to make porridge. It saves you adding all the fruits and stuff yourself if you're short of time ;)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: mcmich on June 30, 2012, 07:52:00 am
I've done that before to Amy. Get to work and soak my container of muesli with skim milk and then come smoko just microwave for a few minutes. Delicious.

I have sultana bran with pyslium(spelling?) husks, a glass of juice and a cup of tea. I've had this for many years. Sometimes I have Tenina's granuesli, but I love having it as an afternoon snack as it keeps me going.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on June 30, 2012, 12:49:18 pm
 ;D ;D ;D

I left school when I was 15 cookie :-[ After my spinal surgery I had fallen so far behind with school work that it would have been almost impossible for me to catch up. I got Certificates II and III in Community Services at TAFE, and I also did a Certificate IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention (Child Protection). Most recently I was studying an advanced diploma of nutritional medicine, but unfortunately I had to withdraw. I'm hoping to get into dietetics or some form or health science at university in the next couple of years though.
I'm currently studying to be a personal trainer, and would like to also study exercise science or physiology :)

Sorry, that was a very long-winded load of blabber :-)) ;D

Amy not rambling at all. This was a question I was thinking of also asking. You certainly sound like quite an inspirational person and I'm more than happy to hear some of your life story.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Delightful Den on June 30, 2012, 01:35:23 pm
If I have time and don't mind feeling like a pig my all time favorite breakfast id huevos rancheros. This is fried eggs served on a tortilla topped with re-fried beans and salsa. May be a little cheese sprinkle on top.

That was enough study for me.

Good on you for keeping on with study.

Thanks Robyn ;D I'm really just your average teenager though :-))
What do you have your diploma in? I'd love to study for the rest of my life. I love knowledge, especially if I can use it to help other people :D

Post by: obbie on July 01, 2012, 06:35:37 am
I have a diploma in Remedial Massage, so i can help people.

I also do ear candling, Reiki treatments as well.

I studied aromatherapy in my massage course, and love  e oils.
I have done sports massage courses, and also Bowen therapy.

all related to each other..

alternate therapies... :)
I love it when I can help people.  ;)

I hate doing a swedish massage, (which is what beauty therapist do) all relaxing....
Love doing sports and deep tissue....

Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on July 01, 2012, 06:50:31 am
Wow Robyn, that sounds like a lot! I think I need to come and see you for a sports massage. How much do you charge? ;D

You reminded me that I did a course in Swedish massage :) It was great, but doing those hour-long massages made my back ache so I don't think its the job for me :-))
It did help me learn a lot of Anatomy and Physiology though, which I need for any health related work ;)

I just mixed up 1 kilo of southern US style pork sausage to make biscuits and gravy for breakfast tomorrow morning.

For the un-initiated biscuits are like buttermilk scones and gravy is a made by cooking the sausage meat like you would mince for savoury mince or spag bol and then making a white gravy using the fat from the sausage, milk, pepper and flour. Once this thickens the cooked sausage is added back in.  The gravy is served over a biscuit.

do es anyone know if you can freeze egg yolks, like egg whites..
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: fundj&e on July 17, 2012, 05:30:50 am
yes you can robyn, its best to add a binch of salt or sugar

YOLKS Egg yolks require special treatment. The gelation property of yolk causes it to thicken or gel when frozen. If frozen as is, egg yolk will eventually become so gelatinous it will be almost impossible to use in a recipe. To help retard this gelation, beat in either 1/8 teaspoon salt or 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar or corn syrup per 1/4 cup egg yolks (4 yolks). Label the container with the number of yolks, the date, and whether you've added salt (for main dishes) or sweetener (for baking or desserts).

Until I tried fresh asparagus a few years back Michele, I used to buy canned too (only John West though) but there is no comparison between fresh and canned so have not bought canned since.  You'd be surprised how many people haven't tried fresh - probably because they don't liked canned. I've introduced it to a few friends since I discovered it myself.  I made a lovely salad for a large family gathering of the in-laws and my DD's family once with fresh asparagus, string beans left whole, snow peas and a vinaigrette dressing - they are not an adventurous lot and my side of the family were the only ones who tried it  :o :-)) >:(

Looked in my fridge this morning and found we had 7 dozen eggs, so we had eggs for breakfast in varying forms today!  :)

Wow Astarra, that is a lot of eggs! Are they breeding by themselves? ;D

Wow Astarra, i gave 3 dozen away  a couple of days ago. I have still got 3 1/2 dozen..

We get 2 doz/week from BIL, but have been given a few extras lately too - all fresh laid eggs!  :) Had not realised we had so many tho!...maybe they are breeding themselves in there!!  :)

 ;D ;D  Wish we had that problem - we have two ladies (of leisure, at the moment. it seems! - no eggs) who usually lay fairly regularly.  But I'm convinced that we have a resident blue tongue lizard who has been extremely well fed!  It's been a race to the coop to get an egg before it appears later with a large hole in the side and sucked clean.  At first, we thought one of the hens was having a go at them   . .  but now I'm not so sure. . . the damage is the same each time - the damage quite consistent.  Next step is to "lizard proof" the laying quarters with chicken wire (what else? :-)) )  underneath the coop etc. and see what happens . . .

I usually have a small bowl of home made muesli with a couple tablespoons of natural yoghurt along with a boiled egg (fresh from our own chickens) and a couple cups of either black or green tea. We have our brekky on comfy outdoor recliner chairs watching the birds on our block, it's a relaxing start to the day.
Sounds great! Mind if we all join you next weekend? ;D

Goldfish, try boiling an egg, carefully remove a little bit of the top, take out some of the boiled egg and mix it with curry or chilli, then replace the top and put it back in the nest. Dad used to do this when we had blue tongues eating our eggs. (in the days of dinosaurs). The blue tongue will hopefully 'hot foot' it out and never come again.

Cookie I tried something like that to cure a hen from eating eggs. She seemed to enjoy it so I gave up. If I ever figured out which one it was I would have been like the queen of hearts from Alice in Wonder Land. Off with her head.

I can't get my head around serving bacon with jam or maple syrup. I thought bacon was a savoury thing? Maybe I'm just behind the times :-)) ;D

Porridge :D
I think it Is an American thing. We regularly mix sweet and savory at breakfast.

Usually I have porridge, but today I had a mandarine, followed by half a multigrain roll that I made last night, toasted with vegemite. Then I had to quality test the scones I made this morning with home made apricot jam, a little cream and a cup of coffee.
No morning tea today though as I was still full from brekky.

Everyone's breakfasts are making me jealous. I love eggs Benedict/Florentine and baked beans on toast. This morning my breakfast was a real mish mash. I had one apple and cinnamon rice cake with light Philadelphia cream cheese, a banana, one slice of whole meal toast with Vegemite and a flat white coffee before my run.

This didn't feel like breakfast so I had french toast with the last of my homemade plum jam for lunch.

The apple and blueberry porridge is in babies and kids - have bumped it for you. (BTW, it freezes well too.)

Thanks for bumping the recipe Astarra :D

I'm glad your mum is finally over that flu, but what a shame she had it for so long! I'm sure it was nothing to do with your nursing skills either, probably just a bad strain :-\
I hope you still had a good time with her, even though you were playing nurse :)

Is it strange being an adult and having your mum stay at your house? Because you grow up in mum's house with mum's rules, and then you move out and you have your own house and make your own rules. I just can't imagine in :-))

I can't wait to try your porridge Astarra :D I just need to get some blueberries ;)

Fresh Amy, we have chickens, and get about 6-7 eggs per day.
You can taste the difference between your own free range eggs, and caged eggs in a supermarket..

Yumm :)

Spinach, onion, red capsicum and Feta Fritata.

I have a nice little Scanpan nonstick fry pan that I cook all the veggies in with a touch of oil then pour the beaten eggs over the top and leave it on a low heat until it is cooked about half way through. Then I slide the pan under the grill to cook the top half.

Post by: Jamberie on August 12, 2012, 03:53:05 am
This morning I experimented (again) with porridge, I like a really thick porridge that I then add milk to at the end...I really hated the EDC recipe as it was like soup and no matter how long I let it rest it didn't thicken up....so this morning I tried 1 cup rolled oats, 600mL water, 2tbsp LSA mix, 1 chopped apple, 2tbsp sultanas, mixed seeds and some brown sugar (8mins, 100oC, reverse, speed 2) . I've nearly got it to my liking but will use 300mL milk & 300mL water next time....
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Delightful Den on August 12, 2012, 05:59:54 am
Very nice sourdough fruit and nut bread toasted from an artisan bakery in Perth for first breakfast pre run. Then poached egg and sourdough rye toast from the same bakery and a coffee post run.

I try to eat at maintenance or slightly above on long run days. It aids recovery. I burned about 1500 calories during my run so it gives me a bit of leeway.

Yes it was Amy. I just put them in the TM with the liquid and the oats and a touch of brown sugar. I think a few more strawberries would have made it even better.

porridge for us as well . I think I am saving so much by not buying processed cereals. A back of oats seems to last ages, I don't even bother with the quick oats just use normal rolled oats and whizz for an extra few secs at the end so they are a nice texture.

I'll be trying it next time I have strawberries, minus the sugar ;)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Delightful Den on August 21, 2012, 03:06:12 pm
If the strawberries were sweeter I would have left the sugar out too. I reckon you could chop an apple and through in some sultanas or raisins and then add the oats and liquid and cook them.

An upudate for Amy (who asked me to share my porridge)

I've been working on my perfect porridge recipe (well perfect for my tastes anyway) and I start by chopping a an apple in the tmx before adding oats, sultanas, lsa mix. Then in the last 20-30 secs of cooking I add a handful of nuts/seeds and brown sugar/honey. Then I serve it with a dallop of natural/vanilla yoghurt.....think I might need to try it with strawberries now though!

I've had a super busy couple of weeks so haven't had a chance to write anything more specific yet....

Mmmm I love the weekends. Was out of bread this morning so instead of waiting for it to cook I whipped up some pancakes and had my poached eggs, smoked salmon and spinach on pancakes.

I've never had a savoury pancake before but I think I'll be doing it again. Was so yummy.

i

Do you mind me asking what protein shakes you drink Den?
I just use Musashi vanilla protein powder that i can get from the local supermarket. I have tried another brand from Coles, I think it was Naturesway, but it was not very nice.

The musashi tastes good but is sweetened with sucralose which is a modified from of sucrose. It doesn't have many digestible calories for the sweetness.   

Many dieticians say not to waste your money on protein powders just eat a good source of lean protein usch as steamed/grilled chicken or turkey breast.

Our closest Maccas in 25 minutes from home.

That's a fair way Robyn.

Funny story because DH is away today I was thinking about have McDonalds for dinner as I have to pick up DS after his piano lesson on the way home from work, then I remembered we were having it for breakfast so I said to Jed my DS I had risotto in the freezer so he said he will have that as it is better than McDonalds, since I have had my TM he much prefers this food to junk food

I can beat that Robyn. My Closest Maccas is 75 minutes away in a town that you would not go to unless you had a specific reason to visit it or were passing through to a bigger regional centre on the coast.

I do sometimes like an egg mcmuffin, but only once in a blue moon and that is usually enough to last me at least 6 months.

This morning I had muesli with yoghurt and strawberries.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

Dash, If I go in the other direction, its 70 klms and 1 hour drive to a Maccas... :)

If I go to the nearest one that is on the way to the city it is 165km and about 1.5 hrs. I only usually stop for coffee from the Mac Cafe when I miss MuzBuz, the drive through coffee shop.

I treat myself to a coffee from the drive through occasionally when I'm working on Saturday.

Thanks for the link consumerate. I love chilli.

Also check out Disaster Bay Chillies (https://disasterbaychillies.com/default.htm). They have some great stuff. We have successfully grown Naga Jolokia chillies from the chilli factory and have some Trinidad scorpion seeds to try. The nagas were hot but not as scary as I thought they would be. I suspect that they don't get quite as hot in the cold Canberra climate (although I really don't know because I'm not very knowledgable about such things). The plants didn't go gangbusters. Hoping they will go better this year as we kept them alive inside under a grow lamp for winter.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: CarolineW on September 23, 2012, 04:39:58 pm
I mainly have yogurt with mixed seeds and nuts with a handful of berries, or scrambled eggs with mushrooms or whatever, or bacon with mushrooms or tomatoes, or fried halloumi with tomatoes and mushrooms

When it's really cold I love porridge, but I haven't been very adventurous with it.  I've eaten it with compote a couple of times after reading the idea somewhere (probably this forum  ;D ) and liked that.  I thought this winter I'd mill some almonds first then reduce the amount of oats to make it lower carb and see how that works out.

Does anyone have any other low carb breakfasts to share?

Caroline, I personally never eat a low carb breakfast because I believe the morning is the most important time to eat a good energy meal, but you could try:
Omelettes (made with eggs and/or egg whites) with spinach, tomato and/or mushrooms.
Green smothies.
Breakfast frittata or quiche.
Scrambled tofu.
Your own "muesli" blend without grain products.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Delightful Den on September 24, 2012, 05:43:48 am
You can also make a "pancake" using 1/3 cup of almond meal with 1 beaten egg and just enough milk to get the consistency how you like it.  Then the only real carbs to worry about is what you put on them. You cold top with low fat yoghurt or cottage cheese and fruit.

Actually cottage cheese and fruit is a good low carb breakfast.

Actually that is where the name originally came from, cottage cheese was easy to make at home and was one of the early cottage industries.

The term "cottage cheese" is believed to have originated because the simple cheese was usually made in cottages from any milk left over after making butter. The term was first used in 1848.[1] The curds and whey of nursery rhyme fame is another dish made from curds with whey, but it is uncertain what their consistency was, if they were drained at all or how they were curdled (which affects the flavor). Some writers claim they are equivalent or similar.[2]

Damn computers, they do mess with our lives. It's been 24 days since Astarra's last posting Michele, how time flies.

Great to see you back Astarra, I was asked where you were and of course had no idea!   I think we all need a forum buddy that we can text or contact somehow when we are absent for a prolonged period.  It makes you wonder if one of us oldies falls off our perch if perhaps we can all ask a relative to make sure they let someone from the forum know. It wouldn't be hard to put this plan into action.  So many of our members have fallen by the wayside without explanation and as we are like family, we do worry about what has happened to them.  Perhaps we can all exchange some contact details with another forum member (other than the computer in case that is the problem) so that someone can make that contact if something has happened.

Sounds great Karen. Pancakes are such a treat. Perhaps if my DH ever wakes up I'll ask him to make me some (I don't think I can be bothered getting up myself!).

How did the sour dough bread go?
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: KarenH on September 30, 2012, 12:06:37 am
Pancakes are a Sunday morning ritual here - but this is the first time we have tried the sourdough ones.  We will definitely be making them again!  Kick DH out of bed and tell him the are well worth the effort - especially with Va Va Voom Vanilla Strawberry jam.

The sourdough bread was an improvement on the last one, but still not totally as I would like it.   Unfortunately I have to work today after all, so have already cut up that loaf and made it into sandwiches.  Might even put on another loaf this afternoon to rise overnight and cook tomorrow.  Loving this sourdough!

Are blueberries expensive up there?
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Mama Fergie on October 04, 2012, 12:26:09 am
Yes they are Amy.  :(
When the fresh ones are too expensive I buy a large pack of the frozen ones and just defrost enough each time I feel like having them.
If they are on special in the supermarket I buy a few packs as always handy to have for muffins, pancakes etc.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on October 04, 2012, 12:29:46 am
Bummer :(
I buy the frozen ones too, but I love fresh, crisp blueberries ;D
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Mama Fergie on October 04, 2012, 12:44:19 am
Fresh is always best  ;D

My problem with fresh blueberries is that my little GD 5 and GS 2  love them so a pack is gone in a flash.
I don't mind as I would rather the fruits than lollies but they disappear faster than I can buy them  ;D
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on October 04, 2012, 12:51:50 am
Yes, they don't last long do they? ;D ;D
My mum has always said that its better to spend our money on fresh, healthy produce than it is to spend it on take-away food, cigarettes, alcohol or gambling. So I don't mind spending a bit extra on my fruit and vegies :)

Have you tried growing blueberries? I have one blueberry bush, but its really small and doesn't have many berries on it. I would eat them all in one sitting :-))
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Mama Fergie on October 04, 2012, 01:23:37 am
I haven't ever tried growing them Amy and now we live on a small block of land 15 meters from the ocean so nothing like that would grow. Even the Norfolk pines that were planted by the council all died within months due to salt spray and wind.  :(
I have a herb patch in my drying area and a that's about it.
Used to grow veggies but can't now.
Your mum is right as money spent on good food is not wasted.
Have to confess I enjoy nice wine but don't smoke or gamble   ;D

Just be positive about it and you will do it.
Both Scotland and Ireland are beautiful but unfortunately the weather is unpredictable. England is lovely too.
My second eldest GD who is 16 just left last week for Italy. She will be there for a month and is soooo excited and happy.
We have travelled all over Europe  and Italy, France and Greece are my personal favourites. And Switzerland!!!  Better not forget that as one of my SIL's is Swiss  ;D

Amy, we grow blueberries, and they are not hard to grow at all.  A little bit fiddly to pick all the berries, but well worth the effort.  My parents live in southwest WA and have just planted blueberries this year and have already got fruit on them - so you should give it a go.  If you can get hold of the Blueberry Ned Kelly or Nellie Kelly variety, they are really hardy, high fruiting compact bushes rather than big sprawling canes.  Good luck!

I make Bircher muesli every night to up our fruit intake, we have 1/4 apple, 1/4 pear, 1/2 kiwi and a few blueberries with 50g Bircher, 80g fat free yoghurt and a splash of fresh juice. No TM involved though : (

Trying to shed some kilos. I haven't missed the diet coke too much. Love porridge and fruit and vegies. Need to cut down on portion sizes, carbs (pasta, bread, rice, potatoes). Breaky is easy, it's the other meals I struggle with.

Amy: in your general research about happy healthy foods do you know what the best sort of 'breakfast biscuit' is?  I get the weetbix multigrain but I've never done a comparison of the nutritional tables. I only buy the multigrain ones because I prefer the taste and texture. Would be very interested in any advice you have.

Thanks :)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on October 25, 2012, 11:47:28 am
Hi consumerate, I can give you some numbers if you like :)

Per 1 Biscuit
Sanitarium Original
Weight: 16g
Calories: 60
Fat: 0
Carbohydrate: 11g
Protein: 2g

Sanitarium Multi-Grain
Weight: 24g
Calories: 90
Fat: 1g
Carbohydrate: 17g
Protein: 2.5g

Uncle Toby's Vita Brits
Calories: 60
Fat: 0.25g
Carbohydrate: 11.5g
Protein: 1.7g

Uncle Toby's Oatbrits
Calories: 80
Fat: 1.25g
Carbohydrate: 13g
Protein: 2.5g

As you can see, most of the plain breakfast biscuits have a similar nutritional value, and they are a good choice for breakfast. Its only when you get into the flavoured weet-bix bites that added sugar can become a problem.
Multi-grain weetbix are great ;) I used to eat them all the time and I still enjoy them on occasion ;D

Just remember to add some yoghurt or LSA for that extra protein.

Hope this helps :)

It does not taste like blood at all. . Does a rare steak taste like blood?

It is just another  type of sausage.

It's actually quite tasty but like a lot of things when we think about what it is we get all funny about eating it.

I like white pudding too.

We had an Irishman and a Lincolnshire man with us for breakfast. They were very pleased I brought it for breakfast.

Don't know Robyn..... I usually do B&E pies/savouries when I have too many.

We had "brunch dish" for breakfast (a dish with ripped up bread on the bottom, then a mix of eggs, bacon, milk and cheese on top - with salt and pepper too)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

I would come and buy some from you Robyn but its a long way to travel for eggs :-\

You could make egg flips and freeze them for healthy breakfasts when you have a busy morning :-))
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

Quiche, they usually take at least 5 eggs each, souffle, fritatta freezes well.
Whislk them in twos and freeze.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Kimmyh on November 04, 2012, 08:26:57 am
What about individual quiches in muffin tins Obbie. I remember seeing something like this a long time ago but didn't have enough eggs! I think you line them with filo to makes cups and crack one egg in each cup and bake. That would use a dozen. Custard, curd, vanilla slice, cakes, cakes and more cakes!! :)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: VieveMS on November 04, 2012, 10:07:08 am
So wish I had that many eggs Obbie.  Pre TMX, I hardly ate eggs but now I am finding I am using at least a dozen a week.  Today at the markets I purchased a tray instead (2 1/2 dozen I think) of my usual dozen so we'll see how long they last.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Halex on November 04, 2012, 10:13:56 am
Wish I had an egg problem. I buy 2 dozen a week. Ds loves egg in his lunch box & he loves egg sandwiches

Frittatas, quiches, cakes, puddings, etc. meringues.

Scrambled eggs for dinner 1 night or an omelette.

Lemon Curd by the british larder, i love this, uses 4 eggs

Eggs, potatoes and many other staples used to be regulated by government authorities. In WA there is still a potato marketing board.  They used to regulate all sales of potatoes from farmer to wholesaler and onto to retailer.

Haven't tried that one Michele but remember having mince on toast as a kid so I imagine the Chilli con Carne would be similar but tastier.

Been watching the Amish documentary and really enjoyed it . Downloaded the SBS on Demand app for iPad and can watch loads of films, documentaries etc. great if you miss something on tv as can watch it any time with this app.

Yep she did get there in time (it is right next to her bedroom and she takes herself, just has to tell us all before she goes, not sure why!! :) ), and as for Miss6 - hopefully she is on the road to recovery. Poor kids has no energy at all, says she feels 'rotten'  :(
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on November 25, 2012, 10:28:52 pm
Maybe she wants you to know she is going to the toilet by herself because she is proud that she can :)
Miss6 seems to have been sick quite a lot lately. The poor love :( Give her a hug from me :-*

I used to skip brekkie - but after having one a few rounds of Michelle Bridges' 12wbt I alternate between the following:

- Quinoa with yogurt and berries

- Multigrain toast with ricotta and banana (with bit of cocoa powder)

- Multigrain toast with avocado and boiled egg

- Oat porridge with soymilk, and I throw in shredded coconut, LSA, and bit of dried fruit

I have brekkie at 7am after my morning workout. Usually keeps me full till lunch (I skip morning tea because they serve too many biccies and sweet treats here at uni) -- but then again I usually have early lunch (11.30am).

ThermieLove I have tried the ricotta and banana on rye bread with cinnamon and really enjoyed it. Do you use flaked quinoa or whole quinoa?

I had my standby by of muesli yoghurt and mixed berries with a flat white. I had an Up & Go pre workout too, but I am starting to feel hungry already. Better go drink more water.

You can put protein powder in anything astarra. Porridge, smoothies, add it to cereal, cake batter, biscuit dough, etc. If you google protein cookies recipe you might find something on google ;)
But in saying that, if it made your MIL vomit, I wouldn't be game to try it ;D

Try it Amy, I am sure it would be delicious.  I don't eat porridge (it's probably the one thing that I really really dislike) but even I might be tempted to try some if it had lemon curd in it.

Just made porridge for breakfast....and it was not very successful!  I suspect something must have got under or against the machine and affected the scales.  I ended up with a MASSIVE bowl full, and then it was a little undercooked (in hindsight I should have guessed that and cooked longer). Ah, well, worse things it could happen with - just a few oats, and some milk that is best before today anyway.  :-))

My coffee is fine  ;D

Yummy granola from Jamie's Ministry of Food.....highly recommended, everyone who's tried it wants the recipe. I particularly like that I usually have most of the ingredients and substitutions are recommended :) It is very similar to Tenina's recipe, without the vanilla (which I amgoing to try next time).

Back to green smoothies today, much better for me than the bacon and eggs and champagne I've had a few mornings. I'm sure after all the alcohol I've consumed my body is loving the green smoothie, I even managed to get one of our house guests to have a small glass.

Post by: Wonder on December 28, 2012, 04:34:11 am
i don't think is much chance of him converting Amy, it took a lot of convincing just to get him to drink the small glass. I made sure today is was a bright green - he wouldn't try it yesterday because it had blueberries so was a very muddy purple colour which wasn't a good look. I have fully converted DH now (only took 12 months) and on boxing day asked if I would be able to cut up everything so he could make one before the big golf game yesterdy - he had the lowest score of his life and won the family competition by quite a way. Of course we are saying it was all a result of the green smoothie  ;D

We had our 8 year old nephew here for a sleep over last night so I made sourdough pancakes for breakfast.  

Why are these pancakes so yellow he wanted to know.  Probably because of the eggs was my reply.  Oh Mum makes pancakes out of a packet, she doesn't use eggs.  Why does this maple syrup smell and taste so strong was his next question.  Because it's real maple syrup and not the fake stuff my DH replied.  

He liked the pancakes, but prefers the packet ones with the fake maple syrup.  LOL  :-))
Oh well, at least he ate them.  Lucky we didn't tell him about the sourdough!

Dear me Katie, some kids just have no tastebuds! :-)) ;D

I ran out of cereal but it was too hot to have a hot breakfast, so I cooked some porridge and then put it in the fridge for 20 minutes. Yum ;D

So I made porridge for Miss 2 and wanted to be creative so added cocoa but tipped too much in!!! Ended up with a bitter dark choc sludge and any effort to sweeten it up (used honey) failed miserably. I also tipped it into a bowl with frozen blueberries, hoping to hide then in there (Miss is not very fond of blueberries). Well, should I say, breakfast ended in tears as she a) found the chocolate a little too much and b) discovered the blueberries in her bowl. 

Almost tipped out the leftover but then decided to keep it. After my workout, I whizzed it up with yogurt, honey and ice and voila! I hate my perfect post-run drink! Very refreshing, especially in this heat.

I made pancakes and drizzled with some cherry sauce that I'd made from leftover cherries. Yum!! Just cooked up the pitted cherries with a bit of sugar and added some maple syrup and thickened with cornflour. Dollop of thickened cream really made them.

Cold porridge? I'd never thought of that before....But if it was chilled in this heat it could be nice I think.

I had another green smoothie...yesterday I pre packaged pineapple pieces and handfulls of blueberries into zip lock bags and put them in the freezer. So today I just put in a banana, some silverbeet leaves and pre-packaged fruit, added some water and it was ready in just two minutes  :)

I'm hoping to make enough of the pre packaged fruit to last me for a few weeks when I start my new job. I've increased from working from two to three days so I need to be more organised!

Maybe I should try a green smoothie, but I always find that spinach makes my mouth feel funny. It is really astringent, and I don't like the texture.
This morning, I had some cherries, and then some of Tenina's Cranberry and Almond Granuesli with yoghurt. I made an extra large batch of the Granuesli the other day - I kept the butter/honey mixture the same but upped the rolled oats to a 1kg bag, and added extra macadamianuts and cranberries. Yum!

Was wondering what to feed hungry fisherman after a morning out? Astarra's filled sausages, poached eggs and eggy bread.
The Kiwis were very impressed - reminded them of the sausages from the take aways in NZ only better they said.

I had a smoothie too, but this one wasn't green -1 banana, 250g milk, 100g yoghurt, 100g strawberries, 1 Weet-Bix, 30sec/Speed8 = yum! Next time I'll only use 50g yoghurt and I'll pulverize for 1 minute, to make sure the Weet-Bix is fully processed. Or if I have time, soak the Weet-Bix in milk for a few minutes before adding all ingredients to the TMX.

I sure am Jamberie :) The addition of cinnamon is delicious :D

Why don't you whizz the weet-bix into crumbs before you add anything else? ;)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Jamberie on January 11, 2013, 03:43:50 am
That's a good idea too....maybe I'll wizz the Weetbix first, then add milk and leave it for a bit then add everything else...so many experiments to try!

Jamberie, check out my Breakfast smoothie (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=3517.0) using most of those ingredients you tried - those times work perfectly for a smooth smoothie with no sign of the weetbix.

Thanks for the link Judy...I only used speed 8 for 30 seconds (impatient me)...so I'll combine our recipes tomorrow and see how that goes, my combination of ingredients (I can't have milo/chocolate at the moment) and your wizzing times and speed :)

You could try adding dates instead of chocolate Jamberie. I have date puree in the fridge all the time for sweetening recipes.

2 cups of pitted dried dates and 2 cups of boiling water - soak for 5 minutes and whizz in TMX until smooth.

If you don't have any puree on hand - just soak a few dates in boiling water - you don't have to just a bit kinder on the blades.
Title: Re: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Jamberie on January 11, 2013, 06:20:34 am
Thanks Mcmich, that's a great idea for adding sweetness.
I'll try it once I figure out more about my migraine triggers. I'm trying to reduce the number of foods in my diet that are high in amines. Unfortunately dates (and lots of other tasty/flavoursome) foods are high :(  I don't avoid them completely I just seem to have a threshold of what I can handle :-\
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: mcmich on January 11, 2013, 06:32:28 am
Oh, so that was why you were adding pears? - low in amines - they would add sweetness too.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Jamberie on January 11, 2013, 06:53:05 am
Yes, but you'll notice I added strawberries today. I'd not had many amines yesterday so had strawberries (moderate/high amines) today. I'm going to do the proper elimination diet in the next couple of months, I'm just sort of waiting til I get back into a routine (new job, buying/selling house etc). Meanwhile, avoiding foods that I know trigger such as chocolate, wine strong cheeses and only having small does of others. Seems a bit hypocritical but most people who are sensitive to food chemicals seem to have a threshold that they can handle (bit like some lactose intolerant people). I'll try your date tip when I've not had too many amines that day!

It's hard, but the headache/migraine is worse...I used to put up with the pain and drink wine before DD came along, now headaches are just not worth it with a little person who doesn't understand! -I still have coffee, it is the thing I'll struggle with most!

This morning, I tweaked my Weet-Bix smoothie (1min/speed9 worked a treat thanks Judy) for myself and made DD and DH piklets...ES you've inspired me to make French toast sometime soon :)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: judydawn on January 12, 2013, 05:19:29 am
Glad it worked better for you Jamberie.  Have you tried decaf coffee - would that be better for your headaches?
Title: Re: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Jamberie on January 12, 2013, 06:14:14 am
mmm, yes decaf. I have tried it. I think it's harder to find a decent decaf coffee than regular coffee. When I start the diet in full force I won't be able to have either for a while so I'll make the most of it while I can :)

Funny thing with today's smoothie was that there was no grittiness from the Weetbix, but I used frozen mixed berries and of course the raspberries made it a bit gritty!

Amy is right den, that is gross.
I had weevils in wholemeal flour once. flushed them down the sink with boiling water. Am still grossed out by the experience.

Oh why didn't I think of that when I was pregnant! I LOVED ice cubes! Expecially when in labour (and on drip and not allowed to eat/drink anything!)

Breakfast today was another Weetbix smoothie.....no weevils tho, so I was missing a bit of protein compared to DD!
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on January 14, 2013, 09:52:22 am

Yes! Almond meal is a regular & I've bought all the ingredients to make LSA, just haven't gotten around to it yet...I also added some sunflower seeds and pepitas, I was a little bit heavy handed though as that smoothie tasted like bird seed  :-))
But the almond meal works a treat and I've added 3 tablespoons and not noticed it.

Craving ice can be a sign of iron deficiency (as is wanting to eat soil😮) so might be worth getting it checked if you haven't had a blood test recently.

That's interesting Bonsai. I was very unwell with DD (severe HELLP syndrome) and low haemoglobin was part of it, I thought I just wanted ice as I was not allowed water or food during the birth (large chance of having caesar under general anaesthetic, hence no food/liquid), but maybe it was my body telling me something!

LOL DH has a cooked breakfast nearly every morning but I personally can't stand breakfast! Today was his birthday hence me cooking it for him. He normally has a tiny portion of steak, two fried eggs from our ladies and then a mixture of zucchini, spinach, capsicum, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and a small tin of four bean mix thrown in. Every now and then he has smoked salmon instead of the steak.

For me it is pushing it to have the smoothie but since starting with a personal trainer I force myself.

But I just had it cuz yeah, I like it!
Girls love it too, and DH loves hot milo with ice cream in it, a very weird sensation to drink but have to admit, it is rather nice!! He also love milo sprinkled on banana splits instead of chocolate sauce (or as well as!!  :D )

A slice of fruity's 5 cup loaf  (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=11512.0) with a big smidge of butter and a diet coke.

This morning I had porridge :)

Saturated fat from the coconut is not really an issue due to the high lauric acid and medium chain fatty acids IMO. It's not as evil as was believed in the past. I will make a revised version in a few days - less coconut (for taste and to reduce the calories), some oats and some flaxseeds. My usual breakfast is either bacon and eggs or oat bran with some protein powder, cacao and coconut oil.

Frozzie, is sheep yoghurt made out of sheep's milk or is that a typo? :-)) ;D
Do you mean you can't even make porridge or pancakes? :(
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Frozzie on February 19, 2013, 11:43:13 pm
Nope not a typo but its expensive here and I've only found it in organic stores... I can't handle bovine dairy products they make me want to throw up so either vegetarian yoghurt imitations or goats or Sheeps yoghurt .. I don't like the after taste if goats yoghurt but Sheeps is fine.. Pity they have no variety here as where we lived in France it was readily available in major supermarkets in various flavours..you could get Sheeps powdered milk but I haven't found it in oz yet..

That is clever astarra :o :D I've heard you can do porridge a similar way and I've been desperate to try it out. Just put a casserole dish of oats and milk in a water bath in the oven and leave the oven on low all night. I wish it was colder here!! ;D

Den, that cottage cheese and banana on toast sounds really good, I will try it :D My dietitian has told me I need to vary my diet a bit :-))

Back before I was really healthy (;)) I used to like frozen banana choc chip muffins for breakfast ;D

You honestly can't mess up Cookies Vienna loaf. It is beautiful and my favourite. Follow it to the letter and you'll have an amazing loaf.   Once you've mastered the basic then add seeds and things as you go. I add whatever I have in the cupboard but mainly white chia, sunflower, sesame and linseeds. Give it a go Amy. You won't regret it.

Oh no! Poor bunny!

Weekends are my favourite breakfasts, it's not because of the food though. We have cuddles, eat toast in bed and watch Play School together :)

 :o :o :o :o :o
That reminds me, I used to have the most placid Golden Retriever when I was growing up. When I moved out of home, he stayed with my parents because they had a much bigger garden for him to play in...I bought myself some rabbits to keep me company and when my dog came to visit, just the smell was enough to set him off- he completely changed his personality, instincts took over! -luckily the rabbits survived! Hopefully Paddy will learn to love Clinker though Amy.

Are Clinker's wings clipped Amy? If not, then he can escape if he needs to. It's a tough choice. We had our cockatiel's wings clipped when he was young and we were training him. They have since grown back and he is not quite as well behaved as he used to be...must do it again.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on March 23, 2013, 12:07:18 pm
Yes, we clip his wings... our house is quite big and there are too many hazards for a little bird who can fly around :P
How old is your cockatiel now?

;D

My favourite breakfast is Eggs Hollandaise with spinach and smoked salmon. I have it once a week!

I hate cereal, smoothies or anything sweet for breakfast (but will go the occasional pancake breakfast!).

The eating of breakfast normally isn't the issue, it's the preparing it. Once I've prepared it, I eat it. I just generally put off preparing it until lunch time... lol. DS used to have breakfast at kinder, now I have breakfast with him at home. He stopped eating breakfast at kinder a little while ago, too much excitement I think, so this way I can be sure we're both eating breakfast. It's just a matter of working it into my routine, then I'll be fine.

Has anyone found that Quaker Oats take longer to cook than Uncle Toby's Traditional Oats? I bought a 4.5kg box of Quaker Oats from Costco yesterday ($9.99! Bargain!) but when I cooked them this morning the way I normally do, they weren't quite cooked. I'm scared of overcooking them, though, and ending up with a massive mess to clean up in my thermomix bowl.

The eating of breakfast normally isn't the issue, it's the preparing it. Once I've prepared it, I eat it. I just generally put off preparing it until lunch time... lol.

Lol jakodai.... Boy! Does that routine ever ring a bell!!! I really need to make an effort to have breakfast .... at breakfast time!

It's good that you and your son have that meal together... That's special :)

awh Goldfish, that's so cute!!!
these days I have 2 eggs.
Sometimes with coffee with a bit of coconut oil in there (gross to look at, good for me, and I don't mind the taste)

sometimes I'll throw in some veggies if
- I have any needing using up
- remember that I have veggies needing using up
- not cooking DD2's eggs with mine

I usually eat those between 7am and 8am depending how my day is going.
On the colder days we had a couple weeks ago, I was hungry by 11, usually this keeps me going until 12-12:30.

Once in a while I'll whip up a pumpkin smoothie or an avocado smoothie (when those are the veggies that need using up, even though, technically, I'm not sure either is a vegetable!  :D )

coffee, biccies at work. Just had chicken for lunch, grazing all day, on small amounts of food.

Astarra... um.... remember you're pregnant? ;D ;D You need more food than the rest of us! ;)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: astarra on May 09, 2013, 03:44:39 am
LOL Amy  :D
Bit hard to forget that now........ :)

That makes sense then Obbie, I am not a grazer so I guess that is why you can keep going on it and I can't!!!  :D
I need my protein breakfasts to get me thru til lunchtime!  :)
I only drink (water) between meals mainly, occasionally have a piece of fruit or two mid afternoon or if someone calls in I have a muffin or whatever just to be sociable.  Maybe i should eat more between meals?

I don't know what the rest of your diet is like astarra, but I would probably include some healthy snacks just to make sure you're getting all the nutrients your body needs :D And make sure you're eat a good variety of foods too, since they all have different vitamins and minerals in them! ;)

Thanx Mum!!  ;D ;D ;)
Think from my posts on the breakfast, lunch and dinner threads you would be able to see what sort of diet I have!!! I just find snacking a waste of time!!!! (Tho have had to have a few midnight feasts lately -  :-)) :-)) :-)) - see why it is hard to forget I have a bub on board ATM!!!  :)
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Amy :-) on May 09, 2013, 03:56:46 am
ROFL :D :D
Sorry if I sounded mum-like astarra, I just get very passionate about nutrition ;D
I can relate to your views about snacking. I only have three meals per day, so make sure they are all quite different to ensure I'm getting an adequate variety of nutrients. I don't feel the need for snacks because for me they would just be excess calories! But then I'm not pregnant ;D

I've never had a midnight feast, it must just be a pregnancy thing :D Will they stop when the bub is born? ;D

Amy and Aastarra, I'm the same as you guys and have never been a snacker. I have my green smoothie which includes a lot of nuts and seeds as well as fruit and veggies and it lasts me well until lunch. I make sure I eat a variety as I'm a bit like Amy and like ensuring I get all my daily needs.

Lovely Mother's Day breakfast of poached eggs and mushrooms. Made a lot pot of Crio Bru, can't say I like it much but I have a giant bag of it to use up,  it does get better with each cup, must be an acquired taste.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: Delightful Den on May 12, 2013, 02:54:05 pm
Sounds like a nice Mother's Day breakfast GHM.

I think the Crio is an acquired taste. I drink it everyday at work now but it took a bit to find the one I liked and to develop my taste for it.  I do find that you need to use at least the recommended amount for the volume of water and let it brew for 10-12 minutes.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

No-one had to encourage us oldies to have children in our day but things are sure different nowadays.  I had to wait until my DD was married 10 years before she surprised me with the pregnancy news.  I'd all but given up and had started giving away all the 'hope chest' items I'd made since they married.  :-))

Exactly Judy, we got married and had children. I was a late starter, married 5 years before DD, but I married at 19yrs.

Stayed at airport hotel in Melb last night before going to chookies today.  I didn't want a big breakfast, so asked for just a  serve of Bircher muesli, instead of the full buffet breakfast.  I got a smallish drinking glass, only just half filled with fairly bland and dry Bircher muesli, and was charged $8 for it  :o :o. Not even a coffee to go with it either

"Think Raw Veggies are Best? Think Again
by Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist on October 13, 2010

I stopped by one of my favorite healthfood stores today to pick up a large cup of fresh, organic veggie juice for an early lunch on the go.    As usual, I asked for the a carrot, celery, beet, spinach and cucumber blend - hold the spinach.
While this request is usually met with a simple nod by the juice bar attendant, this time the guy looks up and says, “Why no spinach?    We have a lot of Raw Foodies that come in here and love the spinach in their juice.”
Ah!   Great question!    I could feel a blog coming on ….
Raw Foodies, I love you, I REALLY REALLY DO (but, PLEASE eat some meat!  You’re looking a wee bit pale).
Not everything should be eaten raw, especially vegetables!
Some vegetables must be cooked else you are actually harming yourself.    Below is a rundown of what veggies should not be eaten raw either in whole or juiced form.


Cruciferous Vegetables
 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but cruciferous vegetables should be cooked before eating as they contain chemicals that BLOCK the production of thyroid hormone in your body!    Considering that 2 out of every 3 Westerners are either overweight or obese and this is projected to jump to 75% by 2020, this is of particular importance as folks struggling with weight usually suffer from borderline to full blown hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, so someone suffering from this condition surely does not want to be eating foods that will block what little thyroid hormone is being produced in the first place!
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include cold hands and feet, thinning hair, fatigue, reduced or nonexistent libido, coarse dry hair, constipation, difficulty losing weight, and depression among many others.
Cooking crucifers reduces the goitrogenic substances by about 2/3.   Fermentation does not reduce goitrogens in these veggies, but since fermented crucifers such as sauerkraut are typically eaten as a condiment and, hence, in small amounts, consumption is fine if the diet is rich in iodine.
Here is the list of common cruciferous vegetables that you do not want to be eating raw if you want to protect your thyroid gland!
Arugula, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, turnip, collard greens, bok choy, brussels sprouts, radish, rutabaga, and watercress.


Notice that many of these vegetables are commonly included in fresh veggie juice blends or in salads.   While an occasional arugula salad or cup of coleslaw is not going to do harm to most folks, it would be wise not to make a habit of eating/drinking any of these vegetables in raw form.
Veggie Greens
 
Some veggie greens contain a chemical called oxalic acid.  Oxalic acid is a very irritating substance to the mouth and intestinal tract.    It also blocks iron and calcium absorption and may contribute to the formation of kidney stones.
The good news is that oxalic acid is reduced by a light steaming or cooking – just be sure to discard the cooking water.
Veggies containing oxalic acid include spinach, chard, parsley, chives, purslane and beet greens.
Hmmmm.    Spinach is known for being high in iron, yet eating it raw will not necessarily give you the iron you want because of the oxalic acid?
Yep, that’s right.  Cook that spinach first if you are seeking an iron boost without the indigestion and don’t get hooked on the raw spinach salads!
Don’t stress about munching the parsley garnish on your next gourmet dinner, though.  A little bit here and there is not going to cause a problem. Eat a big spinach salad everyday and it is virtually certain you will eventually succumb to kidney stones, according to Dr. William Shaw, Director of The Great Plains Laboratory for Health, Nutrition and Metabolism.
Other Raw Veggie Cautions
Other vegetables that are best to avoid eating raw include:
Raw potatoes contain hemagglutinins that disrupt red blood cell function.
Raw sweet potatoes will give you gas.
Raw, edible mushrooms such as the common white mushroom contain toxic substances such as agaritine, a suspected carcinogen.   These substances are heat sensitive and are neutralized by cooking.
Alfalfa sprouts are mildly toxic and inhibit the immune system.   Eating them on a frequent basis can even contribute to inflammatory arthritis and lupus!
Dr. Weston A. Price’s Take On Vegetables
A good rule of thumb when considering the best way to consume your veggies is to remember the letter that Dr. Weston A. Price wrote to his nieces and nephews in 1934.   In this letter, he strongly urged them to eat their vegetables cooked in butter.   His research found that the bulkiness (fiber) of raw vegetables interfered with the human body’s ability to extract minerals from them via the digestive process.
So, should you drink your veggies raw?   Of course.   Fresh juice from veggies that are safe to consume raw is a wonderful way to get a fast infusion of easy to digest, colloidal minerals.    It is also highly alkalizing to the body and a proven way to gently detox the gut.
The great thing about veggie juice is that the fiber is removed, which is the “bulkiness” that Dr. Price found interfered with the mineral absorption.
However, if you are going to eat the fibrous portion of the vegetable, it is best to cook them in butter as advised by Dr. Price to enhance the availability of the minerals.    The fat in the butter permits greater absorption of the minerals, and besides, buttered veggies taste fantastic!

I found a recipe in SFI for Chia & Coconut Pudding which I've had for breakfast.  Easy as, the night before soak 400g can lite coconut cream (I used coconut milk), 1/3 cup honey (80g) - a bit too sweet for me so I'll adjust that down next time & 1/3 cup chia seeds (65g).  Place in a container and stir well.  Cover and store in the fridge overnight. Top with some berries for a lovely breakfast, particularly on a hot day.

I don't know if I'm imagining it but I've had this for the past 2 mornings and I seem to have more energy than usual.  I've certainly achieved a lot more around the house  ;D

It can be used as a dessert but I like quick breakfasts and this suits the bill for 3-4 serves, not large but it is filling.

Seedy porridge for me, with banana, sliced.

If you like things to pre soak have you tried Bircher muesli JD?
Here is a recipe.

Use fruit juice or milk to soak overnight as a variation.
Grated apple and nuts is traditional, but any fresh fruit is great. I love it and will be offering it for B and B guests on preorder.

I had a lovely fresh boiled egg from my girls, the little red hens.

Lately, I've been having what I call Chia Porridge. It's chia pudding, but I think it's best served as a breakfast meal. I use the recipe from an e-book I downloaded from Alexx Stuart called Real Treats. Here's a link to her page: Real Treats (http://alexxstuart.com/my-new-book-real-treats-now-available-on-amazon)

Post by: Wonder on February 16, 2014, 09:04:11 pm
Itsnotartitsdinner, I really like the bacon in the airfryer. I find I can cook all our bacon (for 4) at the same time by just stirring a few times during cooking and then cook all the eggs together in the one frypan. In the past I've always had to either cook the bacon and keep it warm or cook for 2 at a time. I'm still working on exact timing but have been very happy so far. Because the fat drains while the bacon is cooking you also don't need to put on paper towel. it's a bit scary though seeing how much fat is left in the fryer!
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast

inaid, i cook all the bacon in the airfryer and the eggs in a frypan so it's all ready at the same time. Scary to see how much fat comes out of the bacon.

I did cook bacon and egg for DS's bacon and egg sandwich on the weekend, bacon directly on the grill and then egg in the container. Nice and easy.

Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: judydawn on June 17, 2014, 03:12:48 am
Wonder, this is what I posted some time back and is my favourite chia breakfast.

"I found a recipe in SFI for Chia & Coconut Pudding which I've had for breakfast.  Easy as, the night before soak 400g can lite coconut cream (I used coconut milk), 1/3 cup honey (80g) - a bit too sweet for me so I'll adjust that down next time & 1/3 cup chia seeds (65g).  Place in a container and stir well.  Cover and store in the fridge overnight. Top with some berries for a lovely breakfast, particularly on a hot day."


Way too much honey so be careful with that ingredient.

Thanks Denise and Judy, we'll give them a try.

Judy, that's a lot of honey I would try with just a few tablespoons first as I find the flavour overpowering in somethings and far too sweet for me.
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: judydawn on June 19, 2014, 12:23:50 am
I can't remember how many tablespoons I use now Wonder, I made the chia pudding in summer occasionally and it lasts me 3 or 4 days.  Just a couple I think.

This week I'm having porridge with fruit & nuts, made half of a recipe and it made so much I'll be eating it all week  :-))

The coconut yoghurt turned out quite well. I don't have a photo to go with it unfortunately. This is my friend Bridgitte's recipe.

2 Thai coconuts.
2 tlbsp coconut sugar
3 probiotic tablets

Place the juice from 1 coconut and flesh from both coconuts into TMX.
Add sugar and empty the probiotic capsules.
Mix until combined and a thick consistency. If a bit thin then add shredded coconut until thicker.
Put into a container and loosely cover, leave overnight on the bench.
It should have little bubbles in it, don't worry too much if it doesn't have bubbles just taste it and if it's to your liking put in fridge.
It lasts about 3 days in the fridge.

Aren't they the best, Karen! When I've given our eggs away I've always been told how good they were. I didn't pay too much attention to the compliment as I used to think  an egg is an egg..... until a while back I had a half dozen eggs from the local shop. Oh my goodness!! What a difference!! I even had to toss one of them. I count mine getting old when they're over a week! ;D store bought eggs can be 6+ weeks old I'm told.

I wish we could have chooks. DH is still thinks our backyard is unsuitable. Our immediate back yard isn't suitable but right up the back would be OK although we do have a lot of foxes around.
One good thing is I've found a man close by with backyard chooks and he is willing to sell to me as long as I have my own egg carton - no problem.  ;D

Until I was about 40+ I had never had bought eggs. Even after we married and were in the city my parents used to supply us with eggs from the farm, as someone was always coming down. I had to check with my neighbour that the bought eggs weren't off as they were so pale in comparison. She thought it was hilarious. When my brother first came down to uni he threw out 2 dozen bought eggs as he thought they were bad. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
I'd love some chooks but it wouldn't be fair to them in our yard as it is all paved out the back and side.

I had a smoothie for breakfast this morning using some of the plum puree I made with the un-needed plums from the cooking process for the liqueur recipe.

3 tbs plum puree (sweetened when made)
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs chia seeds
1/4 cup oats
8 cubes ice

Blitzed 1.5 mins/speed 8 and it made 2 medium glasses.

For the past 2 mornings I've had Banana Peanut Butter Oats in a jar from http://www.theyummylife.com/recipes/223, it's delicious and 1 serve quantity is enough for 2 serves for me.

1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup low fat Greek yoghurt
1.5 tsp chia seeds
1 tbs peanut butter
1/4 cup ripe banana (mine was very ripe so I mashed it)

Place everything in a jar (I included the banana at this stage seeing as it was mashed), give it a good shake and refrigerate up to 2 days. 

There are lots of variations of this theme on their website.

I usually make this once a week to have over 2 mornings.  Wasn't sure the first couple of mouthfuls, but then I got into it.  Now I really look forward to having it.  Doesn't make a lot but I find it satisfying.  Make sure you toast the pecans as it really adds a nice flavour to it.  You need to start it the night before.

APPLE, QUINOA, PECAN BIRCHER MUESLI serves 2
55g quinoa flakes
½ cup water
150g red skinned apple, coarsely grated with box grater
70g yoghurt (I use Greek style)
1 tbsp agave nectar – (I use 2 tsp light and that is plenty sweet for me)
1 tsp vanilla extract
20g toasted pecans, chopped for sprinkling

Combine quinoa and water in a small bowl.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, stir grated apple, yoghurt, nectar and extract into quinoa mixture.  Divide into 2 servings and sprinkle each serving with the toasted chopped nuts.
 
If you don't mix in the nuts they will stay crunchy on the serve you will be having the next morning.  :D

That sounds nice Julie, I love just being able to reach into the fridge for breakfast on a hot summer's morning.

Today I had the Blueberry Maple Refrigerator Oatmeal (http://www.theyummylife.com/recipes/220/Blueberry+Maple+Refrigerator+Oatmeal). 

1/4 cup oats
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup Greek yoghurt
1.5 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp maple syrup (more or less to taste)
1/4 cup frozen blueberries

Place the first 5 ingredients into a jar, shake well.  Add the blueberries and stir through. Refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Yes that sounds nice too Judy.  I used to only have toast and jam in a morning, but am so loving having something different (and more healthy) these days.  Will give this one a try, sounds right up my alley.  :D

I have been having the same breakfast for the last 30+ years. I think I will definitely try a couple of these.

I took one of the blueberry ones around to Mum today with a note on it to not eat it until breakfast tomorrow  :D  She would have thought it was a dessert and eaten it before then I'm sure.  I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it, something so totally different to anything she would ever have had for breakfast.  I'm even thinking of taking one in and seeing what Geoff thinks of it.  Sometimes, when he doesn't eat his lunch he asks for Weetbix :-))  I guess it's better than not eating anything at all but he does have it for breakfast every single morning.

Banana cocoa refrigerator oatmeal (http://www.theyummylife.com/recipes/222/Banana%20Cocoa%20Refrigerator%20Oatmeal) 245 calories for whole recipe but I only ate part of it.  It will probably do me for 3 meals.

1/4 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yoghurt
1.5 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp honey or preferred sweetener
1/4 cup diced, ripe banana (1 very small banana)

Inspired by all the breakfasts I've been reading about I made some overnight oats.

1/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 tlbsps chia seeds
flaked almonds
soaked in almond milk

Served with banana and yellow peach. It made a large quantity.

It's amazing how much it makes with just 1/4 cup of oats Michele, love your photo.

I had a change from breakfast in a jar today (the remaining portion will still be OK tomorrow).  I had a super sized crumpet with an egg this morning.

Thanks JD.

Crumpet and egg - yummo.  ;D

I made this yummy granola today, not as sweet as some as the only sweetness comes from some dried dates and a little maple syrup.  It looks brown because of all the lovely spices in it and it smells wonderful while baking.

I got the recipe on line a while ago but can't for the life of me now find the blog to link to :-))  Will post the recipe though for anyone interested.

HOME MADE GRANOLA
2 cups of nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts)
1 tbsp (20ml spoon) ground cinnamon
1 tsp each: ground nutmeg, all spice
¼ tsp each: ground cloves, ground ginger
8-10 pitted dates, cut into thirds

2 cups flaked coconut
2 cups rolled oats
55g coconut oil, melted in microwave, about 40 secs on High
drizzle pure maple syrup, (used about 2 - 3 tsp)

Preheat oven 180C.  Line a large baking tray with a silpat or baking paper.

Place nuts, spices and dates into TM bowl.  Pulse the Turbo button until chopped to your liking.  (It's nice to get different sized bits, so don't try and get too perfect).
Remove to a large bowl.

Add the flaked coconut and rolled oats and combine with your hands.

Combine the melted coconut oil and maple syrup then pour over the granola.  Combine with a spoon until fully mixed.

Arrange over the tray and bake for about 30 mins, turning the mixture over now and then with an egg flip.
Remove from the oven and let sit on the tray to cool.

When cool, place into some containers and store it in the freezer.  It keeps nice and fresh in there and lasts for ages.  Can be eaten straight from the freezer without a problem. 
Serve with a dollop of yoghurt and some berries if desired.

that looks and sounds fantastic JulieO. I love having a container of granola on hand for snacking on so will try this one next time I make up a batch
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: JulieO on May 11, 2015, 11:42:04 pm
Haahaa, no I expect not thermilover.  Thankyou for your kind comments.  :D

Both DH and I had some this morning, just with a little milk.  Really nice and you don't need much at all. 

Of course, please add more maple syrup for more sweetness if you prefer but I liked it the way I've posted it. 

I can imagine it would be lovely with sliced strawberries and or blueberries added.   

Makes a fair bit too so am going to keep in the freezer to keep fresh.  :D

I've also found another nice sounding recipe that I'll make when I've used this one up.  Has more sweetness in it but again it sounds lovely and I've kept the link for the blog so will post when I get around to making that.  :)

Thanks Wonder, I hope you like it.  :)

happy birthday to your DS Kyton.

I dug my waffle machine out of the cupboard last week and we have been enjoying Michelle Bridges apple and cranberry waffles the last few days. They are really lovely, quick and easy. They are nice plain but I've been topping with warmed blueberries and a tiny amount of maple syrup.

Kyton, which recipe do you use?

Loving smoothies at the moment - just simple with Banana, Frozen Mango (if you are brave enough to ignore where it comes from) or Strawberry (bit expensive at the moment),  Unsweetened low fat yogurt, dash honey and lite milk.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Lachy, I'm normally a big green smoothie for breakfast fan but it's so cold in the mornings here and I normally go for a jog or walk so looking for warmer but healthy breakfasts at the moment. I'm alternating between these waffles and porridge with CADA or a mixture of goji berries, linseeds and chia
Title: Re: What is for Breakfast
Post by: judydawn on May 27, 2015, 08:56:12 am
You can virtually throw anything in Lachy but if you google smoothies you will find so many different combinations.  Taste.com.au (http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/collections/smoothies) has some good ones

Wonder, your waffles sound delicious! I use the Belgian waffle recipe that came with the machine.

Insert butterfly and whisk 3 egg whites until stiff. Remove to a separate bowl.
In same bowl (without cleaning) melt 125gm butter.
Add 450ml milk, 3 egg yolks, 1t vanilla, 1/4 cup of caster sugar and 2 cups of SR. flour to the butter. Mix on sp4 for 5secs, scrape down sides and repeat. 
I then fold the egg whites in by hand to keep it as light as possible.

Did a big breaky for DH and a vegetarian version for me.  It turned out pretty ordinary. I burnt the toast 3 times (unbelievable) meanwhile the eggs went rubbery so had to start over with them. I airfried the bacon and sausages - the bacon was over done so another go at that. Too much flour in the hash browns so we didn't end up eating them and I forgot the grilled tomato's altogether. It took me over an hour to cook breakfast several times and the kitchen looked a bomb had hit it.  :-))

In for a penny, in for a pound. I had invested too much time and too many ingredients to quit.   :-[
The baked beans out of the tin and the mushrooms are the things that turned out right first time.  ;D

Absolutely not going to be normal - this was a long weekend treat for DH. I've obviously lost my touch with cooking meat. The big breaky wasn't going to beat me.  ;D
